This week the Twittersphere had lots of good insights on managing people. Here’s a few tweets I liked and (and a few others as well).
Business culture is a lot of time spent balancing results with paranoia. A very human condition IMHO.
@Nichole_Kelly When traveling it's important to appreciate the little things. Girl in front of me is named Chase Bacon. I like the way her parents think!
@Ruth_A_Buzzi Before you attach a great deal of importance to your own ideas, do me a favor; consider the source.
Women can be feminine & still strong. You no longer have to dress in "meanswear" to be taking seriously at the office. Get out your pink!
I'm standing outside the T-Mobile Store for the new BlackBerry 10. Where is everyone?
@MarshallRamsey The only drug that could solve my problems is if they put "hard work" in a pill.
@JenKirkman If I were running for President & I already was POTUS, I'd run an honest campaign. "Guys, I don't feel like moving now. Too much to pack."
@missusP Talking loudly does not make you right. It just makes your lack of insight more pronounced. Sometimes, value to shutting up & listening.
@AlfYATDMore than anything else, it’s our decisions, not the conditions that determine what happens to us.
@robin_sharmaIf you’re in business, you’re in show business. And every day’s a performance.
@JimGaffigan Coffee should be embarrassed by how little it helps me get through the day.
@simonsinekA boss wants to pay for results, an employee wants recognition for effort. If a boss recognizes effort, they will get even better results
It's not about whether a company has purpose. It's about whether their purpose is inclusive and shared w/the people who power it.
@Inspired_OnesBeing positive in a negative situation is not naive. It's leadership. @LeadTodayDiscipline is about keeping promises, to others AND yourself. @LeadershipfreakFocus more on enhancing the performance of others than getting tasks done.
@RapidBINever hire or promote in your own image. It is foolish to replicate your strength & idiotic to replicate your weakness @KnowledgeBishopTrain staff to gently de-escalate the ethical but disregulated customer: It CAN be done.
@charlesarthur I’m pretty disappointed about this Mitt Romney video. So far nobody has told us what device is was filmed on and which version OS it runs.
@Mark_MSCOIs there anything more boring than people who like to "play it safe?" @KevinEikenberryWhile leadership and management are different, the best leaders are effective managers too.
