Conducting a Cultural Audit. Conducting a Cultural Audit At the time of undertaking my MBA studies, "culture" was a hot management topic.

Conducting a Cultural Audit

In my role as an HR Director, at that time, I was receiving countless approaches from well-meaning consultants offering to "change our culture" to one that was more caring, or more consultative or participative etc. depending on the product they wished to sell. Intuitively, I couldn't believe that only one type of organisational culture was a guarantee for success in the same way that I don't believe that a superior personality type ensures job success.

Furthermore, I couldn't believe that an off-the-shelf culture change process would work in both my organisation and, say, a retail chain, the army and the NHS. Surely where they started from would make a difference to how you proceeded? With the experience of different organisations to add to my studies I now have a strong opinion that culture is an important lever in assessing and changing organisational performance. Summary.

What’s the Correct HR-to-Employee Ratio? Used in HR Weekly -- July 24, 2007.

What’s the Correct HR-to-Employee Ratio?

Posted online for a week the same day. Issue: It can be easy to misuse or misinterpret the controversial HR-to-employee ratio. Benefit: That metric can help measure HR effectiveness, but only if interpreted and used correctly. Action: Recalculate your ratio using the advice below, then use the number as a guide for future staffing. HR-to-employee ratios are a somewhat controversial metric that can help establish HR staffing and determine how well HR delivers services.

"The ratio is very helpful if you know what you're doing," says James Hatch, a partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers' Saratoga Institute, which specializes in HR metrics. One key danger: Executives may use ratios as a reason to cut HR staff. Looking for more information to advance your skills as an HR professional? Many HR professionals don't calculate the ratio correctly. Leadership Consultants. Graphics Archives - Partnering Resources. HOME - PMC Training. When Feedback Attacks!! (when, how, and why feedback can hurt performance) Did you know that only about 30% of performance feedback interventions actually lead to increased performance?

When Feedback Attacks!! (when, how, and why feedback can hurt performance)

In fact, according to the most comprehensive study to date on performance feedback (Kluger & DeNisi, 1996) researchers found that about 1/3 of the time feedback leads to performance, 1/3 of the time it does nothing, and 1/3 of the time it actually leads to decreased performance! If I was a gambler, there is no way that I would place a bet on a random instance of performance feedback helping performance vs. not helping it… The good news is this – there are factors that can increase your chances that feedback will actually lead to improved performance.

You might be surprised however, to learn that the “time and place” for feedback is just as important as “how it’s delivered.” Head Heart + Brain. We started Head Heart + Brain to change the way leadership development is designed and delivered.

You can download the new Delegation Poker cards here. The Delegation Poker game was first played at the Scrum Gathering in Amsterdam. Since then I had people play it in a number of workshops, and I improved it with their feedback. Here is the first full description of the game. Purpose of the Game I came up with the idea for Delegation Poker when I tried to create a game that would teach people the following ideas (learning objectives): Delegation is not a binary thing. The basis for the Delegation Poker game is the idea of The 7 Levels of Authority, described briefly in my presentation Authority & Delegation, and more elaborately in my article The Seven Levels of Authority.
