“These assets have been declassified and should be distributed to fellow “Agents” for review.”
Aeon: “The CEO of Me, Inc is a job-quitter for a good reason – the business world has come to agree with Friedric Hayek that market value is the best measure of value.” “In significant ways, the calculus of quitting changes workplace dynamics. Being a good manager now means helping those whom you manage acquire the skills that will help them to leave for a better job at another company.”
15Five: “We’ve rounded up five experts in the world of HR who strongly believe that employee engagement is still of paramount importance – provided you’re doing it well. They argue that leaders must think beyond the numbers. Engagement must be approached as part of the whole employee experience, beginning with onboarding and continuing throughout a person’s career.”
Forbes: “I recently interviewed business leader Mike Tippets for the LEADx Podcast, where we discussed the changes he implemented, and what his advice for leaders out there who need a hand.”
The Future Organization: “Leena Nair is the Chief Human Resources Officer for Unilever.” “Leena’s commitment to creating a more human experience is embodied in the way she functions each day. She gives 100% of her attention to the people she is meeting with each day – she doesn’t carry a phone to check emails, instead she waits until the evening before handling them. Leena gives 3 main steps to being human.”
Maritz Motivation Solutions: “The utter explosion of digital content presents countless opportunities for learning. Start here to narrow down your search each week in the often overwhelming landscape of employee engagement thought leadership!”
Allen Communication: “Learn about the latest in employee engagement within various industries. This week’s influential authors look at some examples of other factors that are either affected by employee engagement or affect employee engagement.”
Q3 Leadership Blog: “Success is NOT achieved alone. If your team is not effective, your results will be poor. What team building activities have worked the best for YOUR team? What is the greatest team building challenge you face? Sharing 25 team building tips for your toolkit!”
Marshall Goldsmith: “In this final part of my interview with Judith Glaser, Conversational Intelligence®, We-centric Leadership, Neuro-Innovation expert and Marshall Goldsmith 100 Coach winner, we talk about two mistakes that decision makers avoid when they disagree with their direct reports, which ultimately leads to better working relationships and greater success for the organization.”
Tiny Pulse: “Randy Stocklin, CEO and co-founder of One Click Ventures, joined me via webcam (14:46) to talk about instilling culture in the onboarding process, how to successfully hire on a time crunch, and advice for entrepreneurs.”
Harvard Business Review: “Organizations are increasingly being confronted with new and unexpected situations that go beyond the textbooks and operating manuals and require leaders to improvise on the spot, coming up with new approaches that haven’t been tried before. In the process, they develop new knowledge about what works and what doesn’t work in specific situations. We believe the old, “scalable efficiency” approach to knowledge needs to be replaced with a new, more nimble kind of “scalable learning.” To foster the latter, managers should understand five essential distinctions.”
