10 Questions Great Bosses Regularly Ask Their People

10 Questions Great Bosses Regularly Ask Their People | The new world of work | Scoop.it
Great leaders ask great questions. Too often leaders think they are the smartest person in the room, so they are quick to offer advice, give direction, and share their perspectives on how things should be done. Most leaders do this instinctively, because after all, it's the type of behavior that caused them to rise through the ranks.

Why setting goals makes you less likely to achieve them

Liberate Your Team with Clearer Processes

Liberate Your Team with Clearer Processes | The new world of work | Scoop.it

Ask the members of any team if they want to institute better processes, and be prepared for them to roll their eyes. “‘Better processes’ means ‘more bureaucracy,’” someone will mutter. But ask that same team how much they enjoy doing projects the hard way — duplicating efforts, scrambling to meet deadlines when someone drops the ball, or bearing the brunt of customer fury — and you can expect the floodgates to open.

 

Why do people love to hate “process” but rail against disorganization? It is because most people associate processes with checklists, forms, and rules — the overseer breathing down their necks. Not surprisingly, leaders wanting to foster innovation and creativity are reluctant to institute such rigid controls and procedures.

Ian Berry's insight:
I'm skeptical too. I'm doing my best not to be cynical! For the record my Facebook account is inactive since 2012. The following is the telling piece from this article "They think they are nice people — indeed, most of them are. Mr Zuckerberg seems to be, too. But they tend to cloak their self-interest in righteous language. Talking about values has the collateral benefit of avoiding talking about wealth. If the rich are giving their money away to good causes, such as inner city schools and research into diseases, we should not dwell on taxes. Mr Zuckerberg is not funding any private wars in Africa. He is a good person. The fact that his company pays barely any tax is therefore irrelevant."

On a Sunday evening just a few weeks ago, I watched as 15 women filed onto a terrace at a luxury resort, each clasping a gift in hand for an as yet unknown recipient. These were capable, successful, well-heeled women who had journeyed from across the country to participate in a weeklong retreat focusing on the art of feminine leadership. Their first assignment was to choose a gift representative of themselves, which would be randomly selected by another participant.

What “Facilitation” Really Means And Why It’s Key To The Future Of Work

What “Facilitation” Really Means And Why It’s Key To The Future Of Work | The new world of work | Scoop.it

What comes to mind when you hear the term “facilitator”? A task manager hogging airspace up at the front of the room? Or thoughts like, “Ugh–okay, how do I get out of attending this workshop?”

 

But done right, facilitation isn’t about boring presentations. It’s a process for getting groups of people together to solve any problem. Good facilitators know how to jump right in, establish an objective, create a format packed with interactive opportunities for discussion, and lead groups of all sizes toward constructive solutions. And you don’t need a specific job title or a certain amount of experience to become an effective facilitator–you just have to develop a set of skills that gives structure and purpose to the otherwise unruly art of collaboration.

 

As workplaces become less hierarchical and more reliant on interpersonal problem-solving, rather than just tactical execution, facilitation is becoming a job skill you’ll need to rely on more and more. Here’s what you need to know to get started developing it.
