Leading in the Age of Social Media: Like or Dislike
August 24, 2012
Like (or dislike), social media permeates our lifestyles at work and home in ways that we may not even fully appreciate. Increasingly, organizations are adopting these media as a way to communicate with each other and their customers. The debate around social media (and whether to use it or not), seems to fall along generational lines, with the younger generation (Generation X and Millennials) more apt to favor and their often ‘Boomer’ bosses opposed. Is there a right answer? Probably, but it isn’t the same for every organization. LGL presents the results of studies related to the use of social media’s impact to an organization’s engagement, perceptions of trust, and recruiting, among other considerations. Join us!
You’ve heard it all before…’if only my boss’… While true, that those we report to have impact to our work lives, it’s also true that, as leaders, we’re still obligated to lead. Middle managers especially feel this pinch and often adopt a ‘victim mindset,’ but their obligations remain nonetheless. In this webinar, LGL explores the concept of ‘managing up,’ a concept discussed widely in the business literature since the late 2000s. What does it mean and how can I implement it effectively (without alienating my boss) represent the core aspects of this discussion. Join us and hear our slant on ‘managing up.’
Those Folks: the Multi- Generational Leadership Challenge
For one of the few times throughout our history, America sees four different generations at work. And much like the challenges in our family units to communicate, motivate, and nurture, our perspective is driven strongly by these generational groupings. If you haven’t explored them before, LGL outlines the commonly considered generational differences and explores the challenges these bring to the workplace. As a younger professional, you’re likely hoping those ‘older folks eventually get it.’ Surprise…those experienced professionals are saying the same about you. The chasm is bridged by an understanding of one another, and an acceptance that, like it or not, the younger, as they always have, will succeed the older eventually and run our businesses. Can we really afford NOT to identify optimal ways to work in the multi-generational workplace? LGL proposes an emphatic ‘no,’ and invites you to join us with your perspectives for this discussion.
Tongue in cheek, we’ve heard it uttered around the water coolers, in chat rooms, and at the lunch table. Those ‘effing’ leadership folks… Well, LGL would like to turn the phrase on its head, and approach ‘effing leadership’ from the requirements it brings to contemporary business executives and emerging leaders. Intrigued? Join us for a listen.
Embracing Differences – What Workforce Diversity Should (and Shouldn’t Mean)
From 2006 to 2010, one of our colleagues worked for a Government sponsored research center. Part of that sponsorship required an attention to ethnic diversity in the workforce. Many of you are likely getting similar direction from your own leadership and Boards, but we too often see execution as an analogous game of ‘ethnic go fish’ than the search for diverse mindsets and perspectives to bring to our teams. In this webinar, LGL proposes our model for workforce diversity and what we propose it should mean. Struggling with this? Curious? Hope to see you there!
