Each day, work is evalutated. Sometimes, that evaluation is shared with you, sometimes not. Many love to hear what went well; but, not what went wrong. Conversely, you may often find that you share things that went wrong. Do you let others know when they performed well? Next time someone does a great job, let them know. Also, tell that person's supervisor. People often ask to speak to supervisors/managers to let them know what went wrong. Let them know what went right.

We often read about the right brain/left brain difference. There's been quite a bit of research out over the past couple of years to refute the myths. This post posits that the differences may become more visible in large part because of increased visuals. It's an interesting read from +The Creativity Post 
 
Despite the broad oversimplifications and misinformation of the 1970’s left - brain right brain thinking craze. I.e. the left side of the brain is for language and logic, and the right side of the brain is for creativity and imagination. There are significant differences between the right and left the side of the brain, and these differences matter.

Once broken, it can be difficult to put trust back together again.

Today's #HBRogue  on Twitter at 1pmET is on "What is going on with Corporate Culture?" The post, questions & moderation are from +Jake Willis Hope you can join us!
If you need help converting 1pmET to your time zone, use this link: 
http://www.hbrogue.com/time-conversion/
What is going on with company culture?  The New York Times is attacking the Amazon culture (http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/16/technology/inside-amazon-wrestling-big-ideas-in-a-bruising-workplace.html?_r=0).  
On Monday mornings, fresh recruits line up for an orientation intended to catapult them into Amazon’s singular way of working.
They are told to forget the “poor habits” they learned at previous jobs, one employee recalled. When they “hit the wall” from the unrelenting pace, there is only one solution: “Climb the wall,” others reported.
And an employee responds immediately (https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/amazonians-response-inside-amazon-wrestling-big-ideas-nick-ciubotariu).  Jeff Bezos, founder and chief executive says “friendly and intense, but if push comes to shove we’ll settle for intense.”  He responded to the New York Times article: “a soulless, dystopian workplace where no fun is had and no laughter heard” and said, “I don’t think any company adopting the approach portrayed could survive, much less thrive, in today’s highly competitive tech hiring market.”
Then there is Zappos.  The company that sets the bar high in customer service.  According to the Forbes article “recently, the company has been creating headlines that run somewhat counter to its first decade and half of existence. The “wow” has begun to feel a bit like “oh wow”–and not in a good way.”  
Join HBRogue Thursday, September 3rd at 1pmET to discuss Company Culture
==========
#HBRogue Q1: What is company culture?
#HBRogue Q2: How important is company culture? Why?
#HBRogue Q3: What has the most influence on the formation of a company’s culture? Why?
#HBRogue Q4: How should a company deal with subcultures?
#HBRogue Q5: Can a company remake its culture?

When things don't go your way, it's time to reimagine. Enjoyed this post from +Alli Polin
 
Imagining is the easy part, to reimagine is to never give up on your path to success.

Here's what I figure... you and I can’t wait for broken parts to be fixed before we engage. Fixing and tinkering is ultimately standing still - it's a waiting game.  Will I get things fixed or will I give up. Painful, right?

Instead, it's time to reimagine and discover (and follow!) a new path.

Great post in the +Thin Difference blog. Option A isn't always available. Option B (sometimes Options C-Z) have things to teach us also.
 
What happens when Option A is no longer an option?
Amy Lust is thriving in her current profession, but it's not the career she intended. Learn how this Millennial is finding success in her Option B.

Today's #HBRogue  at 1pmET on Twitter is about "The Role of Assessments in Identifying Talent with Confidence." The idea for the chat, framing post & questions were created by @talentlens @Sushyam and @Futuristic80 (the latter two also known as Susham Shetty and +Archie Velu). Today's moderation is from +Jake Willis. Hope you will join us:

Assessments are an integral part of selecting and developing employees in most of the leading organizations today. According to a survey by the American Management Association, “Almost 90 percent of firms that test job applicants say they will not hire job seekers when pre-employment testing finds them to be deficient in basic skills”. While the above statement corroborates the wide acceptance of assessments, for an organization to make optimal talent decisions one needs to ensure these are effective and reliable.
Creating an accurate assessment requires intensive research, time and expertise. Once designed well assessment tools can predict job success with much greater accuracy, objectivity and save valuable time for large scale drives than traditional talent identification approaches that include résumé reviews and unstructured interviews.
With advancement in technology and increased accuracy, assessments often have a colossal impact on the bottom line and ultimately on organizational productivity.
Questions:
#HBRogue Q1: What are the benefits/risks of using assessments?
#HBRogue Q2: What are some of the area’s best suited for assessments?
#HBRogue Q3: What do organizations lose by not assessing communication skills?
#HBRogue Q4: Should personality test be using during hiring? Why?
#HBRogue Q5: Is the bell curve the right way to assess in today’s employment scenario?
#HBRogue Q6: What are some of the commonly used tools?

Sushyam brought to my attention that the questions and post were created by him & talentlens. Because of how G+ works, if I modify +Jake Willis 's graphic, the link will change for the post. If I change the link, all of the invites that were sent out this morning will not work correctly. (You would receive an error.) Therefore, I made the decision to modify the text & keep the incorrect graphic up for this post. Sincere apologies to Sushyam & TalentLens for incorrect attribution in the graphic. +Jake Willis will likely issue a corrected graphic soon for the remaining Twitter posts today.
