As a company known to be creative, bold and daring, and, for many reasons, a desirable place to work, Google executives believe that Google’s model of managing can be fruitful to any company that hires smart and creative people, moreover, any company can take advantage of some new ways of managing that Google created.   This is the opinion of Google’s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt, and Jonathan Rosenberg, long-time Google executive, described and explained in their book “How Google Works”.    In the book, Schmidt and Rosenberg (with Alan Eagle) shared insights about different managing rules, and corporate culture,...

Leaders define corporate culture.   They create policies, structures and systems, shape communication and behaviour and build a community. The problem emerges when executives and leaders start doing and saying one thing and praising another behaviour.   Listening is one of the most important qualities of good leaders, thus, feedback is fundamentally an important tool for fostering better communication and collaboration and for shaping community behaviour.   Leaders, managers and executives of tomorrow have come to realize why and how giving and receiving feedback is often the key for businesses development.   However, most managers and executives still believe...

Nearly half the world is already online. By 2017 over 50 percent of the world’s population will be connected.   What do you think those people (we) do online?    Whether for business, pleasure or curiosity, social media and social networks are, for many reasons, our focus. With a growing number of niche and business social networks, such online engagement has largely changed the way we communicate, collaborate and do business.   Social media evolved into powerful management tools, no longer being the weapon for marketers to reach their users and promote a brand - successful businesses use social media to create a cohesive work atmosphere and improve teamwork,...

We are brought to this planet for a reason. Our time here is limited and yet we do nothing to better the planet we live on. We treat this place we call home with negligence.   The Earth is rebelling: floods, typhoons, global warming, earthquakes and active vulcanos are some of its weapons, and we do not recognise it.   The good news is that we can change it. The most critical sectors, from water, to energy, food, agriculture, health, finance have serious problems we should address. Those problems are man made and can be man fixed, if we put our minds to it. The only way is to be smart about it, embrace technology and make it work for the benefit of mankind.   That'...

These are some interesting statistics: 66% of employees in Western Europe are not actively engaged in their work and only 41% US workers know what their company stands for and how their company’s brand is different to competitors. While employees think their performance would improve with more feedback and communication, it appears managers don’t know the magic word that boosts performance and teamwork. The communication between managers and teams is undoubtedly more complex, and with virtual teams, which are still relatively new in terms of management, the complexity of this relationship can put businesses in greater risk of failure. Modern...

Large enterprises and small and mid-sized businesses both face challenges with ineffective, poorly organized content process. In many ways, delivering the right content to the right people in the right place and at the right time seems to be one of the biggest challenges they face.

The word teamwork has grown into a universally desirable business attribute, considered the best way of getting the job done. However, although much has been said on teamwork and leadership, still very few companies and organizations have a clear understanding of what teamwork truly is, how to achieve and improve it. It appears that the qualities that make a team more efficient and productive might also undermine success in teams that are large, diverse, virtual, and are created of experts and educated specialists. In such teams, sharing knowledge and resources, learning from one another, helping with deadlines, that is, every action that foster collaboration within the team, might not...
