Creating a Results-Oriented Culture

2015_3_6 Results-Oriented Culture

Even though my friends will laugh (or faint), I’ve decided that it’s time to talk about culture. Lately, I see so much content about this topic, and the role it can play in attracting and retaining talented people. Many of these stories focus on work experience and relationships, which I see as necessary but not sufficient. So, instead of another blog on how to create a great place to work, I want to focus on the issue that I believe matters the most to talented people and that’s how to create a “results-oriented” culture.

Consider the possibility that your swamped-ness is not caused by forces external to you, but rather that it is the result of your approach to the work. Further, consider the possibility that, by doing what keeps you swamped, you remain stuck in managing and miss the opportunity to […]

Face Time Doesn’t Equal Productivity

2_27_13 Limits of Face Time

I understand Marissa Mayer’s edict to have workers return to the office, but I doubt she will accomplish her stated goal of having Yahoo “move more quickly, with teams focusing on collaboration and communication.”  Simply, I believe that most people today face too many roadblocks to effective collaboration – no matter where they park their computer. What is Real Collaboration? At Teleos, we see collaboration as much more than coordinating tasks or playing nice together.  Real collaboration is about building commitment and managing performance, to achieve some shared purpose.  Real collaboration requires people to share their views, even when those views differ from those held by supposed experts and authority […]
