Comments28/07/2017 #4 Sara JacoboviciGreat post @John White, MBA. Your posts are always a great piece of resource to refer back to "time and again". You write, "How you approach time is the ultimate driving force to create the best outcomes for your business." For me this is the key. Not only can we benefit from the strategies you provide, we also need to be aware of our relationship with time. You write, "Manage your work, don't let it manage you." Agreed. My bias around time management is that you can't manage time, you need to mange yourself.28/07/2017 #1 David B. GrinbergThanks, John, for another excellent article filled with important insights and astute analysis. Your advice on time management skills is very timely (no pun intended), especially considering the daily information overload business people (and all people) face in today's hyper-paced mobile, digital and virtual Information Age. Thus, learning effective time management skills and techniques appears more important now than ever. Therefore, your terrific tips, if implemented, should contribute to greater employee productivity, less stress and, hopefully, a better work-life balance (integration) from the top down and the bottom up.

Comments25/07/2017 #9 Jim SaelzlerYou might also ask, "Is there anything I should be concerned with, or should have asked about, that didn't come up here? Are there any common issues that cause misunderstandings? I don't want us getting into the job with a mix up where each of us is expecting the other will do this or supply that."
Not that I can quantify it or find rules to describe the process, but a few months ago we had some substantial remodeling done on the house. In a past life I sold building materials, and one remodeling customer absolutely stood out over the years as a smart, reliable guy who didn't approach with a "Gimme the cheapest one ya got" attitude. That guy was the first and only one I called.
BTW, don't hesitate to ask material suppliers for names of who they would hire. If possible, though, ask more than one supplier and hope you get the same name two or three times.25/07/2017 #8 Renée 🐝 CormierI say never give full value to what others have to say and learn to rely on your intuition.

You might get the job done, but not to the standard you would like.
Phillipe equally important is to ask what they did have done to rectify the negative comments, merely acknowledging a mistake doesn't prove that anything has been done to resolve the issue.#525/07/2017 #5 Philippe CollardWhen I was hiring people, I asked one very specific question that ALWAYS told me something extremely useful. I asked "Can you give me a negative reference. Someone that, if I called, would not say only positive things about you and could actually say negative stuff" and why would they say those things. I do not believe in "positive reference". Come on, you know ahead of these calls that the person is going to say only nice things...so why make the call...However my question has several purposes. 1 - will the interviewee be honest and transparent with me. We ALL did stuff that did not work out and in the process created those "negative references", even if we tried our best. Can the person acknowledge that she/he does not have a 100% perfect record. 2 - is the person sure enough of her or himself to share that with me 3 - can the person tell me how and why things did not turn out right. That is valuable information. I never called these negative references. I did not need to. Either the person was transparent with me and the question had done its job..or the person danced around my question and never got the job!

Comments08/07/2017 #6 Wayne Yoshida#4 Phil - exactly. It is important to know most customers (or maybe 90 to 99 percent) are "OK" with delays and mistakes, since we are all humans and these things happen. But always have something in place to fix the issue, provide status reports before the customer asks, and satisfy the customer in the end.08/07/2017 #5 Phil Friedman#1 #2 You know, guys, it's ironic that Kevin mentions LBJ in this context. Because it was bad information fed back or lack of good information that sucked LBJ into the Vietnam war to begin with. And why the conflict continued for so many years and at such a high cost in blood on both sides, as first LBJ, then RMN were led to believe that "victory" was just around corner. The parallels are stunning. Cheers!08/07/2017 #4 Phil Friedman#2 Thanks, Wayne, for reading and sharing this. And for the kind words. You are correct that it isn't so much that mistakes get made and problems rise up (for that is part of life) but really a matter of how we deal with them. And without honest information being fed back to upper-level execs, the battle is lost. Cheers!08/07/2017 #3 Phil Friedman#1 Thanks, Kevin, for reading and sharing. It's too easy, I think, to blame line managers and workers for the failure to communicate bad news up the information pipeline. And if bad news isn't reaching the exec level timely, it is very often the fault of the executives involved and the atmosphere they create. Cheers!07/07/2017 #2 Wayne YoshidaExcellent, @Phil Friedman -- above all -- the entire team must build trust. And trust comes from honesty. I worked at a place where everyone had good intentions, but only reported what they thought what we wanted to hear. This went as far as lying to management about how great things were going.
And then something slips.
And the lie is passed to the customer as defense to the cause of the delays and human mistakes.
And we discover the lie much later. Poof. There goes the trust in the team forever.
Very share-able advice for everyone and anyone.07/07/2017 #1 Kevin PashukThis reminded me of an anecdote I heard years ago about the Presidency of LBJ during the Vietnam War. Apparently he did not react very well to bad news, so those 'messengers' took it upon themselves to not deliver any (until it was too late).
As a leader, our reaction to bad news is as important as what we do about the situation.
Another great post Phil.

Comments23/04/2017 #74 David B. GrinbergMany thanks for your illuminating comments @Judy Mackenzie, which are most appreciated. Moreover, belated thanks to @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee @Gerald Hecht @Franci🐝Eugenia Hoffman, beBee Brand Ambassador @Nick Mlatchkov and everybody else below who took the time to read this and provide their valuable feedback.21/04/2017 #73 Judy MackenzieI first heard about the ROWE model a number of years ago, when I was working diligently to get our managers away from the "face value" method of reviewing staff contributions. I liked the idea so much I moved from being a corporate executive to consulting/coaching to get to results orientation. Much of my management coaching practice still remains focused on creating an open minded and as Deb Lange so rightly mentioned "self-awareness" mentality. Much work has to be done at the leadership and management levels for this work style to be successful.15/02/2017 #72 Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBeeI totally believe in the shift from control to trust, freedom, autonomy & accountability - And have Been helping people make this shift most of my life - I am so delighted that over my life I have seen this grow and grow - still a lot of work to be done! It is a myth that it is just older people who are controlling - both the young and the old can be controlling! - needs a high level of self awareness at any age .30/08/2016 #65 Gerald Hecht#64 @Nick Mlatchkov yeah...there were plenty of smiths and craftsman and who got damned good results. They were never invited to the balls and galas held by the top brass...which I'm sure was a great relief...they could remain focused on their (results) craftsmanship30/08/2016 #63 Gerald Hecht#59 @Pamela 🐝 Williams That's what Southern Louisiana has become; it's all ROWE... I guess; nobody can actually get anywhere, no one seems to get angry if your 2 hours late; nobody has to explain; whoever you would be expected to explain/report to...already knows that you tried (if they are even there yet); they are already nodding in an understanding way before you start. The only thing that I'm not clear about is there are any actual results29/08/2016 #61 Dale MastersWhile I have been wondering for a decade when this idea will be implemented, I see two problems (and their solutions:
1) Many times, workers will spend months on a product...which upper management takes credit for. That manager then receives a bonus he/she did not truly work for.
1A) Each worker has a unique "signature" automatically attached to their work. Extra productivity then accrues to each worker in the form of extra income.If anyone takes credit and that credit does not accrue to the person(s) responsible for the work, management then has a mandate to a) replace that person in management; b) correct the mistake(s) made by giving the worker(s) responsible the financial remuneration they deserve.
2) Employees are hired based on their education, not their skills. These are often two different things.
2A) Employ (a) psychologist(s) to implement skills-based tests. These specialists will more than pay for themselves, since different projects can then be directed to those who can do the job the best, rather than taking a "cookie cutter" approach to project assignment. Many (if not most) times, this will result in a happier workforce, since people tend to excel in things they enjoy.
Many companies use these tests, but outsource them to psychologists not intimately familiar with the specific needs of each company. An in-house psychologist (or group of psychologists) could avoid this by specialised orientation when hired, and by interacting with each employee on an individual basis.
Another buzz I could write. Oh, the stories I could tell..29/08/2016 #60 Sarah Elkins#53 Great points as always, @Charles David Upchurch! Management classes were always challenging for me, both undergrad and in my MBA program. That was for the simple reason that it's impossible to generalize good and bad practices across all employees in all industries and all workplaces. Micromanagement ALWAYS makes me bristle, though I know some people who prefer to be told what tasks to prioritize, how much time to spend, and which hours they are expected to work. I think management training should focus on understanding motivations of the individuals who work for you, not on any specific best practices listed in a book. There are some great training ideas in terms of process and project management, strategies that can be applied across all implementations, structure changes, etc.; training managers should be about training & managing PEOPLE, which means understanding how to respectfully engage those around you to meet & exceed specific job & career expectations. What do you think? Can we collaborate on a management training book or series of articles based on this concept?29/08/2016 #59 Pamela 🐝 WilliamsI have worked under very flexible systems. It is built on trust; can the employee be trusted to perform at optimum levels. My flexibility resulted from a heavy workload; commuting was a waste of time when time was the resource in shortest supply. The issues that arose were not with management. They trusted me to get done what needed to be done. It was the workers who 'needed' supervision, who needed the office environment. What I found was they were too comfortable with the 8 to 5/ 1 hour lunch workday and being flexible was a threat that meant they had to change their routine. Although that was their preferred work style they thought it should be everyone's. Conform, Conform, Conform! So many complaints were made to management about the unfairness of my remote working style (even though I was putting in 12 hours and was always available). It was management that had to cave. Productivity dropped and costs rose. I see no issues with ROWE but it will take a change in company culture, not just management. You know me David, if I can blame it on leadership, I will. In my case I unfortunately can't blame "the boss".27/08/2016 #56 Todd Lombardo@David B. Grinberg, this is a great piece. Thank you for posting. 20 years ago everybody acted like Gen X was a bunch of aliens. Now, it's millennials/Gen Z. Are millennials really that different, or is it just - ALL of us want more autonomy etc. in the workplace, and technology is changing working habits (like remote-based) for everyone? I get this question often from colleagues (true story): "can you help me learn how to manage millennials?"27/08/2016 #55 Charles David Upchurch#54 @🐝 Fatima G. Williams wrote "But as quite a few pointed out not everyone will stay true to their guts and work sincerely, some need to be constantly motivated or monitored. But then again my opinion is that's a will-based skill issue ( being accountable ) and can be trained with specific coaching sessions."
In my experience, the workers who need the least "management" or leadership (preferably) from others are those who are the most self-motivated, as long as they are able to find organizational and team member roles which align with their personal goals.
That's why my focus is on helping individuals and organizations to find or create mutually satisfactory and periodically flexible job descriptions.
When everybody is doing what they are "meant" to do, management becomes MUCH easier.27/08/2016 #54 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsAn Intriguing & a debatable buzz @David B. Grinberg . I love the ROWE work model and it suits individuals who can be dedicated to their work and produce the required results as required by the management. But as quite a few pointed out not everyone will stay true to their guts and work sincerely, some need to be constantly motivated or monitored. But then again my opinion is that's a will-based skill issue ( being accountable ) and can be trained with specific coaching sessions.
ROWE is the most loved work model among my peers and me , though we tried raising this with the senior management, it was always side stepped.
It may be a while before this gains more prominence. I'm in agreement with @Sarah Elkins in regards to the bad management or I would say the micro management issues in an organisation. Luckily for me I had a way around these managers not everyone will stand up and talk back. Thank you @David B. Grinberg for this buzz and it would just be magical for this to be implemented at work places globally.

Comments07/07/2017 #119 Aleta Curry#107 I understand, @Ken Boddie, but though I experience this I don't seem to be as frustrated by it as you are.
I just skim through quickly when I first browse in to beBee and put articles I want to remember (and those I don't have time to read right then) into my Aleta's Reads hive.
Of more concern is the fact that I miss so much from my favourites. There's so much coming in now that I get fatigued before I've read through every single title in my feed.
I have to rely heavily on being 'tagged' by people who've just published something (the reason I happened upon this post, for example). Trouble is, some of my faves simply don't tag people. I feel a little presumptuous doing it myself, but I decided that being thought presumptuous by some was better than having people who are interested in my posts miss them.
So, I would like to see improvement in the area of being able to follow the posts of certain bees. Don't ask me what that would be; happily, I'm a user here, I'm not at the pointy end!03/07/2017 #114 Lance 🐝 ScoularI must have missed the tag notifications on this @Javier 🐝 beBee and @stephan metral 🐝 Innovative Brand Ambassador for which I thank you.
I have invested more than a substantial amount of time, effort, resources and a wee bit of money (my Scotts heritage bubbling to the surface) in 5 digitally based start- ups in here in Australia over the last number of years. All 5 have fizzled or died.

I understand the concerns expressed by some in the comments below. I have had my own, and questions, conveyed personally.
On the basis of this post and communications received, I for one will continue to support the promotion of beBee for the foreseeable future and look forward to the platforms update.

I do, however, share some of the concerns of @Dean Owen (as set out in his various comments below) relating to the future. I continue to be frustrated by the increasing amount of time I have to spend trawling through posts with which I have little or no affinity, in order to find those I wish to read and pass comment on, and have tried many ways to limit my feed, but without much lasting success. I voiced my concerns in my posts of September and November last year as follows: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ken-boddie/fellow-bees-we-have-a-traffic-problem; and
From the subsequently received post comments it appears that many others are also having difficulty with their feeds and consequently are also missing posts from their favourite bees (Fbees). We were then, back in September, promised a great conceptual solution which you called the STING, but there has been very little more to come on this subject since, and the repeated promises of major change continue without fruition. Your above enthusiastic explanation is gratefully received, but perhaps this would be an apt time to reinforce, to your many devotees, a commitment to including the STING at the earliest possible opportunity? 🤔30/06/2017 #106 Jennifer 🐝 Schultz@Javier 🐝 beBee - As far back as our first Skype conversation, I have had no doubt that beBee will succeed in growing the platform.

I don't want to wake up some day and find my writings have dissapeared because the plug has been pulled. I need to feel confident that my articles will be there for my children to read many years from now. I hope they prove me wrong. I need beBee to succeed.

Comments03/06/2017 #3 Alanea KowalskiThank you Jerry. I have worked with this assessment for over 20 years and the powerful results for the individual, the team and as a result the business are amazing. I also teach the "train the trainer" and it's so energising to watch people take it away to use with their companies. #101/06/2017 #2 Tannis LiviniukAlanea, thanks for sharing your insights. This alignment is a critical facet of team leadership that is so often overlooked. It's not just about hiring top performers. If your top performers can't work together, you won't make much headway. Like a 3-legged race, if everyone tries to go their own direction the whole team falls down.01/06/2017 #1 Jerry FletcherAlanea, Long ago and far away in Denver Colorado I was one of the test subjects for one of the earliest developments in the kind of assessments you speak of here. The impact of learning about yourself and the other members of a team can be life changing. I applaud you in the work you do.

Comments29/05/2017 #5 Lori Boxer. . . and my favorite quote from President Roosevelt, from 1907, is as follows:
“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American … There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag … We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language … and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
Theodore Roosevelt 190727/05/2017 #1 Robert CormackEnjoyed the quote and the commentary, @Janet Lentz. Few people know that Roosevelt nearly died on an African safari with his son. He actually thought of shooting himself so he wouldn't hold up the rest of the group. This wasn't one of those expeditions where you ride around in an open-roofed truck. They hiked through some horrible terrain, jungles and swamps. Imagine what that was like for someone with asthma. Thanks for the post.
