Comment les personnes au pouvoir influencent et impactent ceux qui les entourent?

ceo-mentoring-power-people-influence

Your ability to influence and impact is paramount to your success. It will determine what you get done in relation to your tasks, your clients, your suppliers and with your colleagues. With low impact and influence, our efficiencies are poor and we have to work so much harder to get stuff done. We find ourselves overstretched and under resourced. We get stuck, pulled down into the sticky quicksand of work when we actually want to be up above the workload, doing the important work of making our lives and the lives of others better. Corporate power has traditionally been explained through labels, titles. However innovation, co-operation, technology and social media are loosening the hierarchical grip on power. Those leaders relying on title to influence and impact, are quickly becoming irrelevant and dismissed as historic. If you are rigidly sticking to hierarchical power as your main tool, you may not know…

Comment savoir si on a besoin d’un Mentor?

ceo forum- mentoring - ceomentoring -gfm mentoring

People often assume that leaders automatically come up with the right answers because of the position they hold. The thought is that “they wouldn’t be leaders if they didn’t come up with the right solutions most of the time.” One would like to think so, but the reality is different. The leader of a business or organisation on Monday morning, may have ‘only’ been an executive last Friday. On Friday, they were good, perhaps very good, but not perfect. How did they become perfect over the two days between subordinate and boss roles? Leadership is as much about learning, evolution and personal growth as it is about the innate skills of leadership. The reality is, they didn’t. One of the ways that the gaps in skill, experience or world-view can be filled is by using a suitable mentor to assist the leader contemplate and make key decisions. A mentor should…

Comment optimiser la stratégie Réseaux Sociaux pour le PDG?

socialmedia, howto, ceo, mentoring, ceoforum

Did you know that content shared by the owner of a business receives 8x MORE engagement than content shared by a business social media account? There has been a significant shift in the way a business communicates with their customers online. It’s time for you to change your mindset, and think about social media as part of your “customer experience” journey. What does the phrase “social media” mean to you? Does it mean a way to connect with friends and family, or is it just another phrased used to define the route to market a business online? Let’s take the first word; social. The meaning of this word is often forgotten when people talk about social media and the idea of delivering a social experience. Just like Scott Cook said; “A brand is no longer what we tell the customer it is. It is what customers tell each other it…

La solitude du Dirigeant / PDG

ceo-need-for-mentor-coach

When we speak of « leadership » most people unsurprisingly think of CEOship. The reality is that although CEOs are certainly leaders, there are other leaders in the organisation apart from the CEO. Every person who has the responsibility for other people, is a leader of those people, regardless of where in the organisation they find themselves. The CEO is the leader of the entire organisation, but the field supervisors, for example, are responsible for, and the leaders of, the people and functions under their control. A leader is frequently very lonely in the role – not because they don’t have people to talk to, but because they can’t say certain things to certain people. This is not about « friendship » but about effectiveness. Everybody wants to be friends with the leader – it feels nice, it empowers the friend, and it strokes the ego – and that’s all OK and fairly natural….

Mentorat – L’esprit critique reste l’antidote de reference pour eviter la stagnation!

ceo-mic-mentoring-aristotle-descartes-critical-thinking

In his article How Aristotle created the computer: The philosophers he influenced set the stage for the technological revolution that remade our world, Chris Dixon (note 1) gives us a notable tracing of present day computing back through the history of thought to the classic Greek philosophers. In this voyage back in time Claude Shannon and Alan Tuning played pivotal roles in the final stage of developing computers as we know them today. On the one hand Shannon’s main contributions were to separate the logic and the physical layers of computing, and then having mapped Boolean arithmetical logic units onto electric circuits. On the other Tuning, in his attempt to solve the decision problem (Is there an algorithm that could determine whether an arbitrary mathematical statement is true or false?) showed us how to design computers in the language of mathematical logic. Both Shannon and Tuning constructed their work on…
