LumberTribe Journal #20-26 Managing People
My weekly blog post routine includes posting links to great content I came across during the week.
“In our SLII® leadership development class we conduct an exercise where we ask people to reflect back on their best boss. We ask them to identify the attitudes and behaviors that earned that boss the ‘best’ ranking in their eyes. People share many different positive behaviors. To sum it up, best bosses care about each direct report as a person. They see something the person doesn’t see in themselves. That’s especially important today with everything we are facing in our lives.
People dread asking for help from colleagues and strangers in the best of times. They worry about looking bad, being rejected, imposing on others juggling family and work responsibilities or taking up valuable resources.
In the last few years, many organizations have granted employees the ability to adjust their start and end times, work certain days from home, and “allowed” for unlimited personal time off. These are all considerable changes but for many, they long for more. The common theme amongst all these initiatives is flexibility.
I don’t go into depth about the finds, but encourage you to check them out if they sound interesting.
These are my weekly favorites; I would love to hear about some of yours.
