*The end of the office dress code? Casual Friday the whole week?
Does suits and ties no longer serve any useful purpose?*
Loosening the ties - Lack of a tie becomes a symbol of organizational change - Cultural change at Daimler. Major challenges is not clothing

Turning The Negative Into The Positive

I just finished reading a great article by Dr Deana Murphy from Huffington Post entitled Fire Workplace Negativity and Run a Positive Institution. Here are some highlights for you: When I worked in a corporate setting, I too experienced times when I became negative and sometimes angry under protocol. But the impact of this type of […] The post Turning The Negative Into The Positive appeared first on Dr. John A. King .

To counter the messaging of big brands, startups can always fashion themselves as effective thought leaders. With a little practice, simple startups can effectively build their credibility just enough to get their audience’s attention.

So what are those practices?

With companies becoming more aggressive in their lead generation and appointment setting campaigns, it has become relatively difficult – especially for business startups – to promote their brands.

The best leader is the best servant. The best leader is the best leader creator. The best leader does not create followers but culturize them towards leadership ability.

We know that there are different leadership styles for different objectives as there are different martial arts styles or routes to Kilimanjaro.
 
But…
 
Yes! BUT there is only one Kilimanjaro peak. All martial arts are having the same meaning – to acquire martial arts knowledge and experience to fight and to protect.
Therefore, the same is true in leadership as well ~ on the top of leadership knowledge there could be only one style – a leadership by virtue, a leadership that comprises the pure and essential leadership!
 
It is a virtue that needs a lot of practice. Lots of experiences.  A lot of time to learn. It is like a true meaning of Kung Fu (hard work) used as synonym for mastery in martial arts.

In today’s neo-capitalism business spheres where results of globalization, outsourcing, contracting, downsizing, recession and even natural disasters are all together killing ‘a job security’, how does one deal with such uncertainties?

When people fear that the world around them will fall apart, when our future becomes foggy, when feelings of powerlessness paralyze us, we tend to start to flip out. We pile on more work than we can handle, we are afraid to take sick leaves. Some people start to function on drugs, coffee, cigarettes, alcohol and other substances.  We drop everything that is good for us – we stop to care for our physical well-being, we stop practicing, we do not have fun with friends or have and enjoy vacations and so on.

Should we stop this vicious capitalism cycle or …?

Do you turn off from a LinkedIn profile that feels braggadocious? And worse, do you worry that your own profile steps over the line? In fact, some LinkedIn users are reluctant to work on profiles in

DÍA LITÚRGICO:
JUEVES XII DEL TIEMPO ORDINARIO
 
 
Texto del Evangelio (Mt 7,21-29): En aquel tiempo, Jesús dijo a sus discípulos: «No todo el que me diga: ‘Señor, Señor’, entrará en el Reino de los Cielos, sino el que haga la voluntad de mi Padre celestial. Muchos me dirán aquel día: ‘Señor, Señor, ¿no profetizamos en tu nombre, y en tu nombre expulsamos demonios, y en tu nombre hicimos muchos milagros?’. Y entonces les declararé: ‘¡Jamás os conocí; apartaos de mí, agentes de iniquidad!’.
 
 »Así pues, todo el que oiga estas palabras mías y las ponga en práctica, será como el hombre prudente que edificó su casa sobre roca: cayó la lluvia, vinieron los torrentes, soplaron los vientos, y embistieron contra aquella casa; pero ella no cayó, porque estaba cimentada sobre roca. Y todo el que oiga estas palabras mías y no las ponga en práctica, será como el hombre insensato que edificó su casa sobre arena: cayó la lluvia, vinieron los torrentes, soplaron los vientos, irrumpieron contra aquella casa y cayó, y fue grande su ruina».
 
 Y sucedió que, cuando acabó Jesús estos discursos, la gente quedaba asombrada de su doctrina; porque les enseñaba como quien tiene autoridad, y no como sus escribas.
 
«No todo el que me diga: ‘Señor, Señor’, entrará en el Reino de los Cielos»
 
Hoy nos impresiona la afirmación rotunda de Jesús: «No todo el que me diga: ‘Señor, Señor’, entrará en el Reino de los Cielos, sino el que haga la voluntad de mi Padre celestial» (Mt 7,21). Por lo menos, esta afirmación nos pide responsabilidad en nuestra condición de cristianos, al mismo tiempo que sentimos la urgencia de dar buen testimonio de la fe.
 
 Edificar la casa sobre roca es una imagen clara que nos invita a valorar nuestro compromiso de fe, que no puede limitarse solamente a bellas palabras, sino que debe fundamentarse en la autoridad de las obras, impregnadas de caridad. Uno de estos días de junio, la Iglesia recuerda la vida de san Pelayo, mártir de la castidad, en el umbral de la juventud. San Bernardo, al recordar la vida de Pelayo, nos dice en su tratado sobre las costumbres y ministerio de los obispos: «La castidad, por muy bella que sea, no tiene valor, ni mérito, sin la caridad. Pureza sin amor es como lámpara sin aceite; pero dice la sabiduría: ¡Qué hermosa es la sabiduría con amor! Con aquel amor del que nos habla el Apóstol: el que procede de un corazón limpio, de una conciencia recta y de una fe sincera».
 
 La palabra clara, con la fuerza de la caridad, manifiesta la autoridad de Jesús, que despertaba asombro en sus conciudadanos: «La gente quedaba asombrada de su doctrina; porque les enseñaba como quien tiene autoridad, y no como sus escribas» (Mt 7,28-29). Nuestra plegaria y contemplación de hoy, debe ir acompañada por una reflexión seria: ¿cómo hablo y actúo en mi vida de cristiano? ¿Cómo concreto mi testimonio? ¿Cómo concreto el mandamiento del amor en mi vida personal, familiar, laboral, etc.? No son las palabras ni las oraciones sin compromiso las que cuentan, sino el trabajo por vivir según el Proyecto de Dios. Nuestra oración debería expresar siempre nuestro deseo de obrar el bien y una petición de ayuda, puesto que reconocemos nuestra debilidad.
 
 -Señor, que nuestra oración esté siempre acompañada por la fuerza de la caridad.

#Branding has become a ritual in the corporate world.

From beverage hunks to FMCG firms, all are striving to create a brand out of their business.

The traditional school of thought emphasized on brand building as a collective effort of employees.

But here’s a game changing question:

What if you can be a brand by yourself?

Sounds weird? Well, it isn’t in reality.

I've always felt like leadership is much more than a job, or even a passion for that matter. It's a medium of expression, necessarily dynamic in order to cope with the times but paradoxically retaining similar form across all industries. I was unsure what it was, until I read Depree's "Leadership is an Art," anyway. Regardless, I thought it was worth sharing:
Max Depree’s Leadership is an Art explores with versatile accuracy. Acknowledging the multitude of prevailing beliefs that currently characterize...

While the points made are relevant, I'm not sure about the framing of leadership as something only business managers or entrepreneurs are faced with. Leadership can be found in all walks of life and, more importantly, should be found wherever you are, whether that's in the home, on the field, volunteering for a cause or just being an example for strangers.

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them (and with the same people!) – A.Einstein

From the first conference on climate change in Tokyo back in 1987 a lot has changed but not enough has been done. While the international community and the politicians continue the talks on sustainable development and green economy time passes and pollution, poverty, destruction of our planet, depletion of natural resources have gone almost beyond the point of no return.

What we see today is the current leadership, depletion of resources and pollution not slowing but rising. The gap to sustainability is real and urgent, especially because complex problems we face require innovative /different thinking and networked / civilization(s) actions lead by such (new) leaders. And yes, not just those on the top positions but a whole generation needs to be inspired, motivated and engaged to think and act in a way that matches the scale of the challenge.

All too often, people do not understand the differences and consequences of the various forms of ownership. 

Therefore, we will term a system of largely private ownership that is open to different but mostly privately owned organizations as capitalism. It is an economic system (and not social system) in which trade, industry, and the means of production are privately owned and operated via profit and loss calculation (price signals) through the price system. Capitalism’s proponents claim that the right to both, hire and fire freely, helps to embolden firms to take the risk of job creation and thereby raises the average level of wages and perhaps employment too. Profit goes to private (owner’s) pocket …
Contrary, a common ownership (or Co-Ownership) system is based on a principle according to which the assets of an organization, enterprise, or community are held indivisibly rather than in the names of the individual members. It involves an arrangement whereby the assets and instruments of production belong indivisibly to all members (with the exception, perhaps, of temporary delegate bodies, freely elected by the community and at all times subject to recall). Profit is returned to community …
