Fall 2012 Managing Smart

Oct 10, 2012

Don’t Be Dismissed
No one likes being waved off when they feel they have something important to say or to contribute. But it happens all the time as people get used to doing things the way they’ve always been done because it’s more comfortable and faster than considering a new way. If you have an idea you want to be heard, use a 3-G strategy to get people to stop and listen.

Depression at Work
Clinical depression is a pervasive and overlooked disease that significantly affects the workplace. Compassionate managers can help employees who are struggling with debilitating mental illness. But managers must know what to look for and how to handle the employee’s depression-related performance issues.

Hidden Gems
Journalist and best-selling author George Anders spent four years uncovering superstars at work. What he learned will help hiring managers assess whether or not the person across the interview table has the potential to be a top performer in their organizations.

Engaged Managers, Engaged Employees
An employee or team who is not fully engaged may be a reflection of the supervising manager. If you have an engagement problem among your employees, ask yourself how engaged you are. As you move yourself closer to the “highly engaged” end of the spectrum, your employees will follow.
