Faut-il croire dans le Management?

management-pdg-croyance

Much has been written about the loss of trust in management. These discussion almost always deal with the loss of ‘trust from below’ – i.e. trust by employees or subordinates of senior management. What they don’t deal with is the loss of ‘trust from above’ – i.e. the loss of trust by the board and shareholders in management. Causes for this include management: Setting expectations and failing to deliver. Saying things that are later demonstrated to be false. Withholding part of the ‘truth’. Only putting one side of the argument for an initiative proposed by management. Pursing initiatives that only management will personally benefit from (i.e. establishing KPIs when those KPIs are the basis of management’s remuneration.) Pursing personal gain ahead of corporate gain. Sabotaging initiatives that benefit shareholders ahead of management (e.g. golden parachutes, etc.). Promoting colleagues beyond their competency. Allowing risks and problems to remain unresolved beyond necessity….

Réalité du cancer dans le Management moderne

management-

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…

Nos Champions – Soyez un acteur du changement et soyez prolifique

Champions, Change Agents and Change Advocates are people within the organisation who are knowledgeable about a change initiative, who promote and support it, and with whom employees and stakeholders can direct their questions and concerns. They form a bridge between the change initiative (and its management team) and the organisation, and are an important conduit for communication in both directions. Each Champion, Change Agent and Change Advocate may be assigned to a part of the organisation (or stakeholder group) with which they have familiarity and where they are well regarded and respected. Why is this important? The Champion (or Change Agent, Change Advocate) are essentially the face of the project. Over time it’s common for people who work with the Champion to directly approach the Champion with issues, concerns, advice etc. Such dialogue is encouraged as it assists the project understand the temperament and responses of the business in a…

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?

advice-session-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…
