Talent Accelerator (part 3)
Recently, I shared the results from a study on Talent in Asia, performed by RBL and the Singapore Ministry of Manpower. We evaluated how talent impacts 570 of the best performing businesses in China, India, and Singapore, in both the public and private sectors. This is the final part of a series, Summary of the 10 Secrets to Success from the Best Performing Organizations in Asia. Because many countries in Asia are shifting from exporting low-cost manufactured goods to exporting high-value financial and technical services, it has become difficult for many organizations to drive, cultivate, and foster talent, during this period of tremendous economic growth and dramatic transition.

Light the Fire Within, Not the Fire Below: Motivating and Engaging Employees
With the advent of the Pyeongchang Olympics, I am reminded of the tagline from the 2002 Winter Olympics we hosted in Utah: “Light the Fire Within.” I frequently refer to this phrase when working with an organization to improve employee motivation and engagement. However, to make this tagline more applicable to the workplace, I have added a few additional words: “Light the Fire Within, Not the Fire Below.”  When thinking about different perspectives on motivation, the hard-driving boss comes to mind immediately. I picture him/her insisting on lighting a fire under folks to get them going—usually in the form of threats and bullying. Not Surprisingly, experience tells us that this method of “motivation” rarely yields truly positive and sustainable results.

Do You Really Want More Collaboration?
Innovation and collaboration—those two words come up nearly every time I ask business leaders what they want to see more of in their organization. It doesn’t take too long to find out that these leaders don’t always know exactly what those words mean. It seems like the desire for “collaboration” is often nothing more than hope for better communication and increased speed.

Effective Leaders Focus on Outcomes Rather than Excuses
One of the most common communication challenges leaders face is addressing a colleague, employee, or manager who has failed to meet expectations. An effective leader can transform this challenge into an opportunity by shifting the focus of the conversation away from the failure itself and toward outcomes and a path forward.

Auditing the Effectivessness of your HR Department
For the last 30 years, the RBL Group has been on the forefront of HR transformation. We believe that HR is not about HR, but HR begins and ends with business. We find that many who focus on HR transformation are focused almost exclusively on how to organize the HR department. We believe in designing the right HR department, but focusing ONLY on the HR department is a narrow focus of the overall effectiveness of HR.
