Work Flexibility Is No Longer Just A Corporate Issue

Work Flexibility Is No Longer Just A Corporate Issue | Thoughts of an everyday recruiter | Scoop.it

Flexible jobs, or jobs that can be done remotely, are very common today. A recent Gallup survey found that 43% of American employees spend at least some time working remotely.

 

The nearly half of jobs that can be done remote is no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention, as technology has paved the way for workers to unplug or become location independent. It’s the same reason why millennials are keen to become digital nomads and travel while they work.

 

Employers benefit by having remote employees because their productivity spikes without distractions provided by an office environment. Further, a FlexJobs report found that 82% of millennials said they are more loyal to their employer if they have flexible work options.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, June 29, 2017 1:53 AM
Work from home and Flexi-timings are some of the cliched terms that some of the more upcoming and progressive corporates are coming up with. The fact is that the typical ten to five shift might not, after all, be most productive timings. Schools too need to explore the concept of Flexi-timings in order to boost productivity. The ultimate goal of every corporate organization should be productivity, and as long as goals are being met, it should be OK if the employee works from home three or four times in a week.

3 Secrets Of People Who Always Get Job Offers

3 Secrets Of People Who Always Get Job Offers | Thoughts of an everyday recruiter | Scoop.it

Have you ever heard about someone “cutting the line” to land their dream job? They’re the people getting the perfect position without ever submitting a resume, or negotiating a sweet signing bonus plus five weeks’ vacation, or getting hired for a role the company created just for them. How do they do it? Are they just naturally golden? Or do they know something you don’t?

 

While you might use the word lucky, these folks aren’t necessarily more talented; they’ve simply perfected a way of approaching the job search in a manner others haven’t been trained in (or are fearful of adopting). This out-of-the-box approach gives them a notable advantage when it comes to standing out.

 

So what do they know, and how can you follow their lead to make your next transition not only more quickly, but more successfully as well? Do what they do:

The Eight Habits Of Remarkably Coachable Leaders

The Eight Habits Of Remarkably Coachable Leaders | Thoughts of an everyday recruiter | Scoop.it

In my executive coaching work, one of the most important traits that differentiates high potential leaders is their learning agility.

 

In succession planning discussions, organizations identify leaders who are learning agile because these people quickly learn how to be effective in new and different situations.

 

Organizations hire executive coaches to prepare these leaders for challenging and stretch assignments. Based on my work with these executives, I have distilled eight practices that differentiate the coaching clients who made the greatest gains vs. those that did not. Whether you are being coached by your manager or by an executive coach, these practices will make the difference in your learning agility and impact.

I recently read that in any given sales team, only 20% will take advantage of free training that is offered after-hours. Can you guess where that 20% falls in terms of sales performance ranking within the team? You guessed it. The TOP 20% of any given sales team will typically be the people that take advantage of additional sales training. How telling is that in terms of the traits of those that are constantly pushing themselves to improve?  

 

Have you ever tried to help someone, only to have them immediately become defensive?

 

How frustrating is it to take your valuable time to try to help someone, only to be told that they have been doing something X number of years, and have always been successful?

 

We can ALL always stand to gain added skills to our abilities, and when someone takes the time to give you a suggestion, are you open to it, or immediately shut down? 

 

Being COACHABLE is a trait of someone that will continually improve their skill set, and rise above the competition.

 

When hiring managers, it pays to look for someone that is open to learning and improving, rather than being a brick wall that 'knows it all'.   

 

Read on to learn the 8 habits of coachable leaders, and how to spot them.

How To Use Your Emotional Intelligence To Rewrite Your Job Description

How To Use Your Emotional Intelligence To Rewrite Your Job Description | Thoughts of an everyday recruiter | Scoop.it

If you have a job, there’s a roughly 50/50 chance you don’t like it—at least according to one sobering study last year. Not only are those statistical odds the same everywhere, but quitting for a more satisfying gig is easier said than done. Plus, it can take awhile to learn the technical skills you might need to land a job you like more.

 

But there may be a useful shortcut: What if you could double down on the so-called “soft skills”—like emotional intelligence—that you already have in order to improve the job you’re in? It starts with just thinking more strategically about your relationships around the office. Here’s what to do.

To Be a Strong Leader, There Are 6 Things You Must Give Your People (Most Rarely Do)

The impact of work cultures on the bottom line is a hot business topic. More execs and HR leaders are connecting the dots on how an ecosystem of commonly held values, beliefs, and positive work behaviors drives engagement, innovation, and high performance.

Yet culture doesn't just happen. It takes visionary, servant leadership at the top creating the environment for intrinsically motivated employees to release discretionary effort.

These are selfless leaders who shine the spotlight on others instead of themselves. They have one thing in mind: How do I empower my tribe to reach their potential? You'll find that they are givers--in a personal, leadership, and organizational sense.

Do You Know How Each Person on Your Team Likes to Work? | Thoughts of an everyday recruiter | Scoop.it

When we travel to a country that has a different culture than ours, many of us spend time learning ways to communicate and connect with the people there. We might look up the meanings of common terms and access maps of key attractions.

Similarly, when you first become a manager, it’s helpful to spend time up front connecting and creating a common language with your team. When your team knows how you like to work and how you plan to manage them, they’re able to produce results faster. When you know how each of your direct reports likes to work and communicate, you’re able to save time when setting direction and following up.

People with creative personalities really do see the world differently

People with creative personalities really do see the world differently | Thoughts of an everyday recruiter | Scoop.it
What is it about a creative work such as a painting or piece of music that elicits our awe and admiration? Is it the thrill of being shown something new, something different, something the artist saw that we did not?

As Pablo Picasso put it:

Others have seen what is and asked why. I have seen what could be and asked why not.
Our new research found that there are certain aspects of a person’s personality that can influence their creativity.

Via Kim Flintoff
Gust MEES's curator insight, May 29, 2017 2:35 AM

Our new research found that there are certain aspects of a person’s personality that can influence their creativity.

 

Psychologists often measure creativity using divergent thinking tasks. These require you to generate as many uses as possible for mundane objects, such as a brick. People who can see numerous and diverse uses for a brick (say, a coffin for a Barbie doll funeral diorama) are rated as more creative than people who can only think of a few common uses (say, for building a wall).

 

The aspect of our personality that appears to drive our creativity is called openness to experience, or openness. Among the five major personality traits, it is openness that best predicts performance on divergent thinking tasks. Openness also predicts real-world creative achievements, as well as engagement in everyday creative pursuits.

 

As Scott Barry Kaufman and Carolyn Gregoire explain in their book Wired to Create, the creativity of open people stems from a “drive for cognitive exploration of one’s inner and outer worlds”.

 

This curiosity to examine things from all angles may lead people high in openness to see more than the average person, or as another research team put it, to discover “complex possibilities laying dormant in so-called ‘familiar’ environments”.

Does the character of our leaders matter? According to research done by KRW International it really, really, does!

Welcome to a Leadership Channel Podcast on TotalPicture. Joining Peter Clayton today is Fred Kiel, PhD, co-founder of KRW International, the author of Return On Character. For more than thirty years, he has helped Fortune 500 CEOs and senior executives build organizational effectiveness through leadership excellence and mission alignment.

 

Strategy+Business considers Return on Character one of the best business books of 2015.

With Credit Suisse replacing their CEO after years of fines and the future of companies like Uber and Yahoo! being questioned because of bad CEO behavior, (or the current CEO poster boy, infamous former Turing CEO Martin Shkreli), could this be the wakeup call we need to start measuring how the character of a leader impacts their organization's performance?

For the first time we now have data to measure the correlation. In Return On Character (Harvard Business Review Press,), the findings are revealed from KRW International's seven-year study on the financial impact of character.

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company | Thoughts of an everyday recruiter | Scoop.it

You’re a pretty rational person, or so you think: You’re often good at thinking logically and keeping your feelings out of it, right?

Wrong. (Sorry!) It wasn’t long ago that people believed emotions and logic were two completely separate things, operating independently of one another. But breakthroughs in brain science have made it clear that that’s far from true. It turns out that our brains are incapable of making fully unemotional decisions. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, you can use that cognitive reality in your favor to build relationships, network, and gain influence.

Vanessa Ong Li Wen's curator insight, March 19, 2017 12:14 PM
I agree that at times, we need to angle our argument that targets one’s emotional capacity so as to strengthen the message we are trying to convey and be more persuasive. Although logic is an important factor in allowing people to understand what you are trying to say, simply informing them and convincing them are two separate matters. In essence, using positive emotions to encourage people to believe in you is the right way to go. Once they feel that they have established the connection with you, they will naturally be more inclined to believe whatever it is you are trying to say.
