Comment s’y prendre pour prévenir une marée noire et assainir le climat de travail ? Je vous parle souvent de l’importance de notre perception. Le rôle du coach, c’est d’éclairer cette perception, de faire prendre conscience des filtres avec lesquels chacun de nous traite les informations qui lui parviennent de son environnement. Vous l’observez quotidiennement autour de vous : devant une situation donnée, il peut y avoir autant de réactions que de personnes différentes. Ainsi, nous rencontrons parfois de vrais négatifs, des jamais contents. Alors, comment manager un négatif ?

Règle 5 : Formez. Know When to Manage and When to Coach. When Choosing a Job, Culture Matters - Bill Barnett. By Bill Barnett | 4:08 PM May 2, 2012 Some organizations will excite you. They’ll stimulate your success and growth. Others will be stressful. They may lead you to quit before you’ve accomplished much or learned what you hoped to. Sean (name has been changed) is a master at this. The next step was a return visit, after which he’d decide to accept the offer.

Surprisingly, Sean turned down the offer. As he learned more about the company, Sean questioned how he’d be viewed as the first CAO in a company where everyone else focused on bottom-line results. “I asked how they’d keep score on me, how they’d really know I was making a difference,” he said. Sean was concerned that this new position wouldn’t fit in the company’s culture, that he wouldn’t really be accepted, and that it wouldn’t be a springboard to the line job that he really wanted after two or three years as CAO.

It’s not uncommon for job seekers to enter organizations without understanding the culture and come away disappointed. Life Lessons From Benjamin Franklin - Business Insider. Benjamin Franklin was a man of action. Over his lifetime, his curiosity and passion fueled a diverse range of interests. He was a writer (often using a pseudonym), publisher, diplomat, inventor and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. His inventions included the lightning rod, bifocals and the Franklin stove. Franklin was responsible for establishing the first public library, organizing fire fighters in Philadelphia, was one of the early supporters of mutual insurance and crossed the Atlantic eight times.

Kiefer, and Paul B. Brown.

By Leonard A. Schlesinger, Charles F. Kiefer, and Paul B. Brown | 11:32 AM March 29, 2012 “If you’re really passionate about what you do, but it’s not going to make you a lot of money, should you still do it?” What a great question! Inspiring. Based on the research we did for our book, we’re convinced that when you’re heading into the unknown, desire is all-important. And, it will help you persist. But, let’s be real. A friend of ours was hanging out at a bar with a few fellow professional musicians after a recording session, talking admiringly about another musician they all know.

I had a large staff, mostly writers and designers plus a few business analysts. Now nearing the 10-year anniversary of my exit from the corporate world, I’ve decided to look back and evaluate how I did as a manager.

In some ways, the passion and drive I have to succeed helped me get to a fairly high-ranking position, just one level away from the vice president of a then 50,000-plus employee company. At the same time, I realize now that my disposition and skills were no match for the vagaries of corporate life. Here are a few lessons I learned. 1. Many entrepreneurs I know suggest the old walk around the office to chit-chat with employees. 2. I made plenty of mistakes with my staff, but the one that sticks out the most was how I tended to avoid building relationships. 3. 4.

I was always told that managers get paid more for the sleepless nights. TEDxToronto - Drew Dudley "Leading with Lollipops" 5 Phrases That Can Boost Employee Morale. I left the company years ago for another but I still run into former colleagues. Usually the ensuing conversation involves something along the lines of, “Hey, did you hear about the (latest management decision I think is really stupid) at the plant?”

This question was different. “You worked there for almost 20 years,” my ex-coworker said. “Is there anything you wish you could go back and do over? " I thought about it later. I don't really regret strategic errors or poor tactical decisions or career missteps (I made plenty of those.) I certainly regretted those things then, but now, not really. Instead I most regret the things I didn't say: To employees who reported to me, to some of my peers, and to at least one person I worked for. It's too late for me, but it’s not too late for you. “That was great how you...” Feel free to go back in time. “Can you help me...?” Even though I could tell he really wanted to participate, I never let him.

And there’s a bonus: You get help. Say you're sorry. Nuggets of Storytelling Wisdom. Nuggets of Storytelling Wisdom In this post, I return to one of my favourite themes that run through this blog: the importance of storytelling. Past posts on the subject include this one and this one. I recently came across a great TED Talk on storytelling by Andrew Stanton, a director and screenwriter at Pixar whose filmography includes the Toy Story series and Finding Nemo. In his talk—which opens with a ribald joke that didn’t offend me but did surprise me given that it was delivered at TED—Stanton speaks with noticeable emotion about how important storytelling is for human beings. Weaving personal anecdotes with short clips from movies on which has worked, he makes a compelling case for the power of a good story. Although Stanton reads too much during the talk for my liking, his personality, his knowledge of and passion for the subject, and the goldmine of storytelling wisdom that he shares trump that shortcoming.

Below is Stanton’s TED Talk. Like this: Like Loading... About John Zimmer. Analyse du langage non-verbal. Détectez si une négociation est en bonne voie… ou pas ! Coaching en entreprise : pourquoi ça coince par Nicolas Tissier - Chronique Management. Retour sur une décennie d'émergence du coaching en France, un outil dont l'usage en entreprise reste en retrait par rapport aux pays anglo-saxons.

Quelques éléments de diagnostic permettent de comprendre pourquoi et de dégager des perspectives d'évolution Au début des années 2000, la pratique du coaching en entreprise a pris son essor en Europe continentale avec les pratiques importées des États-Unis autour de l’école de Palo-Alto, de l’analyse transactionnelle ou encore de l’analyse systémique.

How Great Bosses Motivate Employees. Five Leadership Lessons From James T. Kirk. The Cost of Bad Project Management. When it comes to project management, most organizations put their practices before their people. They place more emphasis on rational factors -- the process itself -- and less on emotional drivers that could lead to project excellence -- like their employees' engagement with the project and company. Large projects, especially those in the IT sectors, have a poor record. But forcing team members to adapt to project management processes and procedures makes it more likely that the project will fail. The resulting cost from bad project management is reaching astronomical levels. It represents a significant waste of money, and it poses a threat to organizations that rely on the success of large-scale projects. Gallup's behavioral economics research suggests a different, more powerful approach: behavior-based project management.

Behavior-based project management applies the principles of behavioral economics to manage an organization's emotional economy. The high cost of failure. Make a Good Impression in 30 Seconds - Ron Ashkenas. By Ron Ashkenas | 12:52 PM February 6, 2012 This post was co-authored with Holly Newman. Here in the U.S., the Super Bowl this weekend showed us the power of 30-second advertisements, and how influential they can be in promoting a company’s awareness. But how often do we craft our own 30-second spots with audiences that we want to influence? Most of us are not in the business of making TV commercials, but in conversations there is almost always a 30-second moment that can make the meeting memorable.

Malcolm Gladwell touches on this phenomenon in his book, Blink. He talks about “thin-slicing,” or “the ability of our unconscious to find patterns in situations and behavior based on very narrow slices of experience.” He explains how too much information can cloud an individual’s ability to accurately analyze a situation, and how “in good decision making, frugality matters.” So how do you turn your moment into an award-winning spot?
