This article reports on a study that has found significant overlap between general intelligence and emotional intelligence, both in terms of behavior and in the brain. It appears that aspects of both IQ and EQ draw on the same brain regions.

More Companies Are Outsourcing Their Human-Resources Work

More Companies Are Outsourcing Their Human-Resources Work | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

It used to be that H.R. was a single, physical place that workers could visit — to pick up a form, ask a question, seek advice, lodge a complaint. Now if a company still has a stand-alone H.R. office, it’s probably much smaller than it used to be. If workers need help, they may have to call an “800” number, consult a Web portal or use a software program.

 

The outsourcing of H.R. has accelerated over the last decade and will continue to do so, said Lisa Rowan, a research vice president at IDC, the market research firm. While some companies may entrust their H.R. needs to a single outside firm, it’s more common to parcel out functions to a range of outside providers, she said.

 

Outsourcing allows companies to offload work that isn’t part of their core business. It also saves money. But some H.R. experts are concerned that the trend has gone too far, to the point that employees are suffering in areas like training and career development, and that employers are losing crucial business opportunities.

Research is constantly throwing up new information; information that business owners in particular, need to take in and determine whether making changes to how they operate is required.


Leadership is a heavily researched subject, and from time to time, new discoveries that can change the way we think about leadership are made.


This excellent article, suggests that we need to rethink our attitudes towards leadership, and it identifies five new discoveries about leadership to support this suggestion.

The sum of operational, executive, and engineering cultures is greater than the corporate whole.

 

In 1990, when he became the CEO of the General Motors Corporation, Robert Stempel was known as a quintessential “car guy.” He took pride in having risen from junior engineer to head of General Motors’ giant Buick–Oldsmobile–Cadillac Group and then to CEO. He seemed to care deeply about the people who worked for him and the machines they made; he knew enough about cars and customers to face down the bean counters, and enough about people and technology not to be dazzled by hype.

The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.

 

Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.


Via Martin Gysler
David Hain's insight:

When I started work in the late 70's with a big company, I really thought I'd have a job for life.  I'm glad I didn't, because life has become a series of gigs.  I tell my kids they need to work on building life and relationship skills that will enable them to transfer between gigs more easily.  The soft stuff really is the hard stuff, everything technical is more or less learnable.

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:43 AM
@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:54 AM
@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.
