Worth reading: Management Y by Brandes, Gemmer, Koschek, Schültken (2014)

The book was published 2014 by Campus and written by the four authors Brandes, Gemmer, Koschek and Schültken, all of whom are working in the consultancy field. Brandes is also involved in the gratifying “New Work Project Augenhöhe (eye level)“. The book is very colorful and reminds you of former editions of the Business Model Generation by Campus, which were also designed with much effort and skill… that is with many pictures, large-format photos, illustrations, quotations, room for discoveries - but in doing so always on the edge of a picture book.

La Mannschaft

54, 74, 90, 2014: Germany is World Soccer Champion again! Teams with such ingenious individualists like Neymar or Ronaldo had no chance against “our 23“.
Team spirit seems to promote cooperative behaviour and thus also performance. This is not only true for soccer but also for work. The research trio John List (University of Chicago), Uri Gneezy (University of California) and Andreas Leibbrandt (Monash University) compared two fishing villages in the World Cup host country Brazil regarding their team spirit.

"How did I do?" About success factors using 360° feedback instruments

From our point of view being able to receive and give feedback is one of the key aspects of successful leadership. But it is a long and hard way to get there. The current issue of the Harvard Business Manager picks up on exactly that topic. Most interesting for you is probably the way google used 90°-feedback (employee reporting to manager) to improve the reputation (cultural level) of the little appreciated work done by managers of google.

Mentoring Programme Management

Mentor is a character in Homer's Odysee. He is the wise advisor, counsellor and supporter, who looked after Telemach, the son of Odysseus whilst he was away. Today, mentoring stands for a relationship between individuals, who work together in role learning and knowledge transfer. Many examples of mentoring relationships in different cultures do exist, for example the Guru in India, the Master in China, the Village Elder in Africa or the Tribal Elder in North America.

Personalization

How positioned with regard to personalization is your HR-area?
After the personalization if the IT sector (Amazon, Google, etc.), the insurance sector (just to calculate the price of a car insurance there are often more than 15 criteria) and the personalized medicine (however, restricted to the pharmacotherapeutical use), the topic now as well infringes on HR and the personal development.

Ingo Kallenbach spoke on November 14, 2012 in front of small and medium-sized organisations situated in Karlsruhe.
Target of the presentation was the demonstration of how strategic personnel development can be acomplished even with small funding. Herewith, measures are necessary that are closely connected to the business strategy; they are especially necessary in those areas that constitute critical success factors for the organisation and with those managers / employees who have key positions in the organisation.
