The week is finally over! To guide you to the weekend, and to make sure you didn’t miss the things we found interesting this week, here’s a quick round-up of the articles we shared on social media the past few days.
Are you Facebook friends with your manager?
The folks over at The Undercover Recruiter spent a little time collecting opinions from a variety of different professionals about the risk vs. reward of befriending your manager on Facebook (and other social media. It’s a fascinating read, and the answers (as you’d expect) range from “Oh no, no, no” to “Duh. Obviously you should be.” If there’s one thing the internet is good for, it’s contradicting advice.
Advice for new managers (that some not-so-new managers could use, too)
Rob Cahill at ERE Media writes his take on What Every New Manager Should Know. If you think that some of what he says here is common knowledge, then you’ve been pretty fortunate (as far as managers go) in your career. This is a short, but on point, article on three key things that every manager should understand. It’s a good read for anyone who has recently taken on a managerial role.
Culture change secrets that you should probably know
Culture change can be a seemingly insurmountable task inside of any organization. It almost certainly can’t happen overnight. Never fear, however, as Tim Kuppler at ERE Media shares what he thinks are the 8 Culture Change Secrets Most Leaders Don’t Understand. While it’s a pretty long article, we’ll preview #8 for you:
“8. Culture transformation starts with personal transformation.
I love this point from Larry Senn. You can effectively cover the first seven “secrets” but your change efforts will bog down as individual behavior and mindset issues continue to persist, especially with top leaders. Top leaders must gain an understanding of how their behavior is impacting the behavior of others.”
It all starts within. If you think your organization has a work-culture problem, we suggest investing a few minutes into this article.
