Harvard Business Review

As a result, repatriate turnover is alarmingly high — up to 38% in the year following return. Given all the challenges, it’s not surprising that expats are more likely to succeed — that is, to adjust to living and working overseas and to be engaged at work — if they are given the flexibility to accept or decline the assignment in the first place.

How to Get People to Collaborate When You Don’t Control Their Salary

Harvard Business Review

Most of us assume that if we want to change people’s behavior, we need to change their incentives. For example, after I published research and advice on collaboration in professional service firms , I heard from a surprising number of people who wrote to ask questions like, “Maybe it’ll work in a partnership, like a law or consulting firm, but what about in my company, where employees aren’t owners and can’t change the rules?”

Don't Just Punish Them If They Don't Comply

QAspire

Home Go to QAspire.com Guest Posts Disclaimer Don’t Just Punish Them If They Don’t Comply I have seen organizations that do the following. They define their work processes and implement them across the organization to get certified against a certain standard (like ISO). This is how a “constraint” mindset works. When people don’t follow a process, it only means that either they don’t know how to use the process or the defined process simply doesn’t work for them.

What It Takes to Become a Great Product Manager

Harvard Business Review

” The role of a Product Manager (PM) is often referred to as the “CEO of the Product.” Translating business-to-technical requirements, and vice versa. These PMs excel at reflecting on where each of these competencies contributed to the success or failure of their products and continuously adjust their approach based on customer feedback. These PMs also know when to take a breath and step away if needed, to regroup.

New Research on Working Parenthood: Men Are More Egalitarian, Women are More Realistic

Harvard Business Review

A short maternity leave may be relatively easy for her, in part because she and her spouse have great wealth and because, as CEO, Mayer has considerable discretion about how to spend her time. And yet, that the board agreed to hire a pregnant Mayer as CEO was a sign of real progress in our collective grasp of what's possible, for men and for women. The decisions made by Yahoo's board and by Mayer signal something important to us all — greater freedom.

Can Building Great Products Help You Build Great Teams?

Harvard Business Review

Silicon Valley was built on amazing products, not on stellar leadership skills. In fact, veterans of some of the world’s most successful tech companies often look with skepticism, even disdain, on efforts to build strong management skills. It’s true that if a start-up fails — or is sold — the need for enduring leadership may never arise. But neglecting the art of people management has significant costs for any company that aspires to be around for a while.

5 Things We Learned About Creating a Successful Workplace Diversity Program

Harvard Business Review

Companies today spend millions of dollars on workplace diversity programs and outreach, often with little to show for it. Research has found that most workplace diversity programs fail to produce meaningful diversity and inclusion, and some have actually increased bias among individual employees. In STEM fields, both the private and public sectors continue to struggle with recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce. Keep the conversation going to stay accountable.

"Having It All" Is Not a Women's Issue

Harvard Business Review

The resonance of Anne-Marie Slaughter's Atlantic article is testimony to how far we've come since 1987, when I began talking about work and family in my Wharton School classes. We're here to learn about business, not family," they said. And when I started the Wharton Work/Life Integration Project a few years later, I got some strange looks, for it was odd to be a man talking about work and family at a business school known mainly for its strength in finance.

Managing Designers on Two Different Tracks

Harvard Business Review

You also have to retain, direct, and eventually promote them — something that managers from other backgrounds can find daunting. Creative professionals do fare better when they’re given flexible schedules , meaningful work, and license to fail — but then, so do the rest of us. The good news is that the curiosity-driven creatives who come out of these programs can make excellent leaders, well-suited to the kinds of collaborative teams that spur innovation.

The CIO in Crisis: What You Told Us

A Transformation Is Underway at U.S. Veterans Affairs. We Got an Inside Look.

Harvard Business Review

The agency, which provides health care to approximately 9 million veterans at over 1,700 locations, had set a top-down goal to increase the percentage of veterans who were seen within 14 days of requesting an appointment. Others routinely cancelled and rescheduled appointments to make wait times appear shorter than they actually were. “Organizations are perfectly designed to get the results they get,” notes McDonald.

Research: Low-Status Men Hesitate to Negotiate Their Salaries

Harvard Business Review

It’s become a popular explanation for the gender-wage gap: Women are less likely than men to self-advocate for a pay raise. If we can get women to negotiate more like men, then the gap will shrink. For example, in 2015, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh launched a five-year partnership with the American Association of University Women (AAUW) to offer free salary negotiation workshops to women in the city of Boston.

Trump Is About to Test Our Theory of When Leaders Actually Matter

Harvard Business Review

I will not pretend that this is an easy piece for me to write. I was absolutely certain that Hillary Clinton would not just win but win handily, and equally certain that Donald Trump, were he to be elected, would be a disaster as president, both because I disagreed with his policies and because I felt that his combination of erratic decision making and ignorance about the basics of government spelled nearly certain catastrophe. That should have made me able to foresee his victory.
