Leadership du changement – Comment ameliorer les resultats

transformational, leadership, john McMorrow

Proactive, collaborative and transparent leaders consider, the effect and reaction from others when looking at what changes in action, behaviour or management style will have over the team or department in their organisations. These leaders carefully measure how a decision relating to one department will affect the entire organisation. They will have an awareness of where to initiate the first action to best affect the remaining team members. These leaders understand that their work and those of each manager is only made possible with the collaboration, trust and momentum that comes from their team. These Transformational leaders approach each situation from a place of internal motivation, using this force to power the collective mission and vision of the organisation. By instilling equal value and power into everyone within the organisational, the leader is trusting that the change in the individual will inevitably affect a change throughout the entire organisation.

Réalité du cancer dans le Management moderne

Today with Jack, as corporate advisors, we have met and dealt with hundreds if not thousands of managers at all levels of the organisation over a total of 60 years between us. When we reflect on them and their performance, and despite their general desire to perform well for their employer (and its shareholders), we can’t help but hold an uncharitable view of the management community. 1. It is the rare manager indeed, who will welcome attitudes and opinions that flag dangers to the organisations. By implications, those negative opinions might create a perception of that manager as lacking skills because they should have identified and dealt with the issue or danger themselves. It is a threat to the manager and will in most cases be rejected by the manager. Consultants who ‘tell it how it is’ experience this all the time. The consultant or advisor might be blamed for not…

Transformez votre société afin d’être plus digitale. Une nécessité!

mentor-ceo-cto-cio-robin-speculand-digital

n the last quarter of 2018 Bridges Business Consultancy Int and PerformanceWorks partnered to identify what 1,874 leaders, across Asia Pacific, North American and Europe, were thinking about the impact of digital on their business and how they were addressing the challenges it raised, with some fascinating realizations. Almost half of all leaders interviewed are not prepared for digital transformation – The readiness of leaders to adopt digital in their businesses is much lower than anticipated, despite it being so widely discussed. Only 6 out of 10 organizations have a digital vision and Europe is lagging behind Asia Pacific and US. This result surprised us. From our work and travels, we had anticipated that transforming to digital would be high on the leaders’ agenda for this year. Digital is leveling the competitive playing field. Across all three continents, companies are starting from the same place in transforming to a digital…

Quelles lecons pouvons-nous tirer du desastre en RP de United Airlines?

united airlines-fashionunited-ceo-mentoring

On April 9th, a United Airlines customer on a flight from Chicago to Louisville was dragged out of the plane due to seats that needed to be given to crew members awaited in Louisville the next day. It was done by security personnel in such a violent way that the customer had blood on his face and the videos of the incident were all over the internet. Even though it does not take away the responsibility from United Airlines, the flight the customer was boarding was a United Express flight run by Republic Airlines. When there is an overbooking (and/or possibly the need to find a seat for a crew member), the airlines have the duty to offer compensation which we understand can go up to $1350 however only $800 was offered to the customer (according to sources via CNN). United Airlines CEO, Oscar Munoz,  has won the PRWeek « Communicator…

La rançon du succès

may the force be with you - curse of success

A couple of days ago, I was in the car and forced to stop for some roadworks. There was a guy, part of the road gang, standing on the road with a stop sign. I presumed that this was his job – day in, day out. He was dishevelled despite wearing road-working gear, unshaven, smoking (of course), and when I got close enough, I noticed his glazed-over eyes and general look of life-fatigue. We were held there for a while and I kept watching him – wondering what sort of life this guy had – what level of satisfaction – what expectations and ambitions – what stories he would take home to his family (if he had one). Based on a scale of relativity with high priced executives at one end, this guy would surely be somewhere near the other end. Based on a success scale, this chap would obviously…
