David Goggins – Can’t hurt me

No Comments

Mark ScheipnerMark Scheipner recommend “Can’t Hurt Me” a book by David Goggins. “It is a motivational book, from that aspect I would give it a 10-10. My tip would be to listen to it when you are going for a big challenge in life, be it career wise or a physical challenge. Guess I never put more km on the road than in these 2 days. It teaches you that you will always have something in the tank, even if you don’t thinks so. It’s all about the right mindset.”

Yves Morieux – six rules to simplify work

No Comments

Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today’s businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex — and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit’s warren of interdependencies. In this energetic talk, Morieux offers six rules for “smart simplicity.” (Rule one: Understand what your colleagues actually do.)

Yves proposes 6 simplification rules for business

  1. Understand what others do – beyond a superficial title, understand what their role involves.
  2. Reinforce integrators – give managers the power to make cooperation happen without forcing KPIs and complicated structures on people.
  3. Increase total quantity of power – empower everyone to use their judgement and intelligence to take good risks
  4. Extend the shadow of the future – make sure feedback loops expose employees to the consequences of their actions
  5. Increase reciprocity – remove buffers that force people to be self-sufficient
  6. Reward those who cooperate –  “blame is not for failure, it is for failing to cooperate or ask for help”

Simon Sinek does it again, explaining one of the most difficult concepts in a few simple yet rock solid strong messages; leadership is like brushing your teeth every day, what matters is the repetition of small meaningful actions, an executive is not a dentist – making impact on a stage at a leadership event twice a year.
