HR … WHAT’S HR GOT TO DO WITH INNOVATION? ISN’T THAT R&D?

04-Oct-2010 - Les Hayman Why is it that when you talk about innovation most people can’t look beyond product innovation? It’s a wonderful thing to have superior products, particularly if you can create products that people just love to have and to use, like Apple. My wi... Lesen Sie mehr »

14-Apr-2014 - Les Hayman “Kill my boss ? Do I dare live out the American dream ?” American actor and writer Dan Castellaneta Every boss has their own style and their own set of strengths and weaknesses. It is rare to actually find a boss who is perfect and maybe the best... Lesen Sie mehr »

LEADERS BUILD LEADERS

02-Dec-2013 - Les Hayman I have long believed that one of the key measures for any senior manager should be whether s/he is a net creator of talent for their organisation. It is also critical that this focus is not only to build the skills of people in their own area of ... Lesen Sie mehr »

THE LESSONS THAT MANAGERS CAN LEARN FROM SINGAPORE

23-Sep-2013 - Les Hayman I have been a big fan of Singapore, and in particular of its founder Dr. Lee Kwan Yew, since I first visited the island in 1977. I had the privilege of living and working there for over 6 years, before being transferred to Europe, and after an ab... Lesen Sie mehr »

HR … DOES PERISH COME NEXT AFTER PARTNER AND PLAYER ?

22-Apr-2013 - Les Hayman I have long believed, written and spoken about the fact that HR organisations need to go through a major transition to be allowed to survive as a business unit, rather than just ending up handling administrative functions in a shared service cent... Lesen Sie mehr »

THE MANAGEMENT ART OF STACKING FIREWOOD

18-Mar-2013 - Les Hayman William Faulkner (1897-1962), American writer and Nobel Prize winner said “The Swiss are not a people so much as a neat, clean, quite solvent business”. I am in Klosters in Switzerland for two weeks of skiing with my family, and it is almost impo... Lesen Sie mehr »

MANAGERS SOLVE PROBLEMS

11-Mar-2013 - Les Hayman I believe that one of the key critical skills of anyone in a management role is the ability to be able to solve problems, despite my loving the fact that Albert Einstein said “Intellectuals solve problems, geniuses prevent them”. Photograph by Or... Lesen Sie mehr »

TENTH RULE OF MANAGEMENT

11-Feb-2013 - Les Hayman The first rule of management is that successful management is actually more about how you manage yourself rather than being about how you manage others (see “First rule of management” posted June 25, 2012). The second rule of management is that t... Lesen Sie mehr »

HERO TO ZERO IN THE CORNER OFFICE

29-Oct-2012 - Les Hayman I find it interesting that many people seem to have an assumption that a senior executive who has shown a measure of success for some time will continue to do so ad infinitum. This belief in an executive’s ability to sustain a never ending “onwar... Lesen Sie mehr »

ARE FANATICS OR FOOLS THE PROBLEM ?

23-Apr-2012 - Les Hayman “The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so certain of themselves, but wiser people so full of doubts.” Bertrand Russell Whilst it may not have been his primary intent, I always find it interesting how accurate Ber... Lesen Sie mehr »

WHY ARE SO MANY MANAGERS SO BAD AT RECRUITING ?

12-Dec-2011 - Les Hayman Putting the right people in the right place is a critical skill of any manager and yet for many this is a serious weakness, resulting in them regularly putting people into roles where they can’t succeed. Not only is this an expensive mistake to m... Lesen Sie mehr »

SUN TZU WOULD GO BROKE TODAY

03-Oct-2011 - Les Hayman I am amazed at how many business people falsely believe that “Business is War”, and how many young managers and MBA students see Sun Tzu’s “Art of War” as being the holy bible for waging business in the same way that one would wage war. I know th... Lesen Sie mehr »

THE 3 GREAT BUSINESS LIES

02-Aug-2010 - Les Hayman It is incredible that marketing organisations within companies spend such an incredible amount of time developing a company’s mission, vision and values statements and yet they all tend to come up with basically the same things over and over aga... Lesen Sie mehr »
