Data Alone Won’t Get You a Standing Ovation

See on Scoop.itAbout leadership

Your data needs soul to illuminate and inspire.

 

A few years ago, Dr. Brené Brown delivered a presentation on “The power of vulnerability” at TEDx Houston. As a professor at the University of Houston, Brown studies vulnerability, courage, authenticity, and shame. It’s a pretty big subject area to squeeze into 18 minutes, yet Brown did it so well that her presentation has been viewed 15 million times and has turned Brown into a New York Times bestselling author.

 

She began her presentation with a short anecdote:  A couple of years ago, an event planner called me because I was going to do a speaking event. She said, “I’m really struggling with how to write about you on the little flier.” And I thought, “Well, what’s the struggle?” And she said, “Well, I saw you speak, and I’m going to call you a researcher but I’m afraid if I call you a researcher, no one will come because they’ll think you’re boring and irrelevant.” And I was like, “Okay.” And she said, “But the thing I liked about your talk is you’re a storyteller. So I think what I’ll do is just call you a storyteller.”

I read your recent response on the importance of SSL monitoring. Can most enterprise, Web-based data loss prevention (DLP) products scan SSL traffic? How do the features vary, and what should I look for in an SSL decryption appliance?

Shifting the Meaning of Hierarchy to Community

See on Scoop.itThe New way of Work

Over the last year or so, a fascinating bow wave of interest has been converging on a growing cadre of companies who appear to be doing something quite novel and seemingly new. Specifically, these organizations have apparently thrown off many of the traditional structures and processes of corporate management. Interestingly, all of these organizations are focusing on change through people first, technology second, if at all.

Targeting the Greater Good

See on Scoop.itAbout leadership

In a bold and inspiring essay, renowned psychologist and bestselling author Daniel Goleman declares: “Our times demand leaders who are not just smart, but wise. Wise leaders formulate strategies that target the greater good, not just one organization’s aims. The more skilled we become at spotting and cultivating the potential for such leadership, the more hopeful our future.”

One year after launching What’s the Future of Business (WTF): Changing the Way Businesses Create Experiences, I had the opportunity to tell the story behind the book and why experiences are…everything.

Positiviteit

See on Scoop.itAbout leadership

Organisaties bestaan om resultaten te behalen! Dat is een wetmatigheid waar niet aan te tornen valt. Het is dan ook logisch dat binnen het bedrijfsleven veel nadruk wordt gelegd op feiten en cijfers. Vooraf worden doelstellingen vastgelegd, bijbehorende budgetten worden toegewezen, Key-Performance Indicatoren worden bepaald, maandelijks worden de resultatenspreadsheets ingevuld en beoordeeld, en aan het eind van het jaar wordt de jaarrekening opgemaakt. En het jaar erop begint het hele circus van voren af aan, waarbij veelal de doelstellingen worden aangescherpt om aan de groeidoelstellingen van het bedrijf te blijven voldoen.

The New Era Of Talent

See on Scoop.itThe New way of Work

Ask anybody who manages a business and they will tell you how important it is to hire the right people.  Top companies recruit at the most selective schools, offer excellent pay packages, generous benefits and a comfortable work environment.

 

Unfortunately, it seems that even the best firms are facing a widening skills gap and it will only get worse.McKinsey recently released data outlining a fundamental mismatch between the demand for skills and the supply of workers who have them.

 

Clearly, if businesses are to remain competitive, they need talented people, the right skills and there is growing evidence of a new productivity paradox, in which automation is rendering old skills useless.   So even if your workforce is highly qualified by today’s standards, they might not be tomorrow.  We need to rethink how we manage talent.
