Self-Discipline Quotes. The business partner model: 10 years on - Lessons learned. Dave Ulrich and Wayne Brockbank, November 25, 2008 Dave Ulrich's business partner model was launched to great acclaim in 1997 in the book, Human Resource Champions. Here, Ulrich and Wayne Brockbank, fellow Ross School of Business professor at the University of Michigan, answer recent critics, who say it just doesn't work, by reflecting on what has been learned about the relevance of the model over the past decade 1. All support functions are in the same boat The business partner model is not unique to HR; all staff functions are trying to find ways to deliver more value to either top line growth or to bottom line profitability. The need for greater business performance has put all support functions under a microscope. 2. The aim of the business partner model is to help HR professionals integrate more thoroughly into business processes and to align their day-today work with business outcomes.

The Morning Routines Of The Most Successful People. Whether you’re a morning person or a night owl, we all start our day at some point. And we all seem to start it differently.

Some of us hop online to check social media, others dive in to email, still others eat breakfast, exercise, or pack lunches for the kids. There’re a million different ways a morning could go. Which morning routine might be best? While there’s probably not an ideal morning routine that fits everyone, we can learn a lot from the morning routines of successful people as well as from the research and inspiration behind starting a morning on the right foot. I collected a wide range of opinions on how best to start a day, from the scientific to the successful. Science says: Willpower is highest in the morning, so start strong You’ve maybe heard the advice that your first work of the day should be something meaningful and significant, a task that might take a lot of focus, will, and determination to accomplish.

That’s the idea purported by the strength model. P.G. What motivates us at work? More than money. “When we think about how people work, the naïve intuition we have is that people are like rats in a maze,” says behavioral economist Dan Ariely (TED Talk: What makes us feel good about our work?) “We really have this incredibly simplistic view of why people work and what the labor market looks like.” Instead, when you look carefully at the way people work, he says, you find out there’s a lot more at play — and at stake — than money. Ariely provides evidence that we are also driven by the meaningfulness of our work, by others’ acknowledgement — and by the amount of effort we’ve put in: the harder the task is, the prouder we are. “When we think about labor, we usually think about motivation and payment as the same thing, but the reality is that we should probably add all kinds of things to it: meaning, creation, challenges, ownership, identity, pride, etc.,” Ariely says.

Chris Anderson shares a public speaking tip. YouTube/TED As a the head curator for TED, the global nonprofit famous for its insightful talks, Chris Anderson knows a thing or two about what a successful TED talk looks like. And all the best ones, he says, begin with eye contact. "At TED, our number-one advice to speakers on the day of their talk is to make regular eye contact with members of the audience," Anderson writes in his new book. "Be warm. Be real. Be you. " Anderson is the author of the upcoming book "TED Talks: The Official TED Guide to Public Speaking," a step-by-step instruction manual for putting on a great talk. "Great speakers find a way of making an early connection with their audience," he writes.

Anderson points to Kelly McGonigal's talk about stress, Raghava KK's talk about life as an artist, and Pia Mancini's talk about democracy as examples of successful TED talks that reinforce the importance of eye contact. "There's a reason for this," he says. It's true, we have. The Single Most Important Thing You Need for a Productive Team. Every company wants high productivity. Some companies go to great lengths to figure out to hire people that work well together and put all sorts of perks in place to make people happier at work. Awesome. But, it turns out there is one thing that Google found influenced productivity more than anything else: Psychological Safety.

Charles Duhigg, the author of Smarter, Faster, Better and Laszlo Bock, senior vice president of People Operations at Google, were on Freakonomics last week and explained: DUHIGG: What matters isn't who is on the team. This sounds pretty darn easy, but in practice, it's not. We know how critical bullying can be--rude statements can destroy lives. Strict hierarchy rules. If your team has some of these negative things going on (or has outright bullying going on), it's your job as the manager to get things put together so that your team can feel safe speaking up. You might be surprised to find out what great ideas can come out when people feel safe to speak up. Fistful of Talent - *We* let the dogs outFistful of Talent.

7 Leadership Lessons from AFL Legend Tommy Hafey - Australian Institute of Management Blog. Why Leading Transformation Successfully Requires a Shift of Leadership Mindset - Change Leader's NetworkChange Leader's Network. Dean Anderson Linda Ackerman Anderson Leadership mindset and style set the overall tone for organizational culture and performance, including how change efforts are run. Command and control, the most common leadership style, does not work for transformational change, yet most leaders and organizations rely exclusively on it. In this article, I will introduce a new leadership style—co-creating—and demonstrate why it is paramount for transformational success. A co-creative change leadership style often catalyzes these conditions for successful transformation:Organizational alignment with local control of local decisionsMassive information dissemination in all directions so the entire organization can participate intelligentlyEasy integration of change plans across hierarchical and functional boundariesCommon and aligned change goals throughout the organizationConstant learning and course correcting and change plansCredible leaders people trust as they march into the unknown.
