    Steve Balzac on Organizational Psychology for Managers

    in Business

    My friend Steve Balzac, author of "Organizational Psychology for Managers" (download book excerpt on Motivation here), answers these questions:


    1. Many tech companies handle leadership by promoting an engineer to team management/leadership. Is it true that engineers only respect other engineers as team leaders? What does that do to team performance?


    2. You mention the use of games in chapter 8. How can games be used to develop leadership skills and inspire innovation?


    3. How can I apply the principles in your book to promote effective organizational change? How can gamification help me there as well?

    TEI 006: Studies In Organizational and Open Innovation – with Karla Phlypo, PhD

    in Business

    Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you another episode of The Everyday Innovator.


    The podcast is all about helping people involved in developing and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.


    Our Guest:  Karla Phlypo is an avid dreamer, builder, artist, and scholar. She holds a Ph.D. combining research in social innovation, knowledge management, and decision science. Her background is in automotive product engineering. Although she has many interests, the common thread is contributing to a culture of sharing and innovation through collaboration.


    Highlights from the discussion include:



    Karla studied how people participate in innovation environments (open, crowdsourcing, and collaborative communities)
    Key contributors needed in innovation environments are solution providers that tend to be quiet (may not offer ideas until asked to do so), non-political, and boundary-less with a systems view
    Organizational innovation is improved by knowledge managers who aid the flow of knowledge in an organization and identification of best practices
    “Hardy perennials” are not flowers, but problems that keep showing up in product efforts that need to be pruned
    Idea management systems that collect suggestions for employees can destroy trust when they don’t understand how their ideas are used – they can be counter-productive when not managed properly

    Part 2: Close-Up spotlights organizational psychologist Dr. Mariesa Julien

    in Business

    Cliffside Park, NJ – With industry regulatory standards increasingly becoming the norm, the responsibility for an organization’s success or failure has been placed squarely on employees. The more we can limit the things that prevent organizations from being effective and encourage the things that support its objectives, the better the outcomes.


    Dr. Mariesa Julien is an organizational psychologist and founder of Compliant Quality Systems, a unique business consulting firm specializing in helping companies improve their operational efficiency and organizational culture.


    “Core values are great, but they’re not skills,” explains Dr. Julien. “You need both in order to effectively support the overall objectives of an organization.


    Organizational psychology is the scientific study of human behavior in the workplace and organizations, and for the past 15 years, Dr. Julien has brought her unique approach to understanding the relationship between functional and job skills, operational transparency, and interpersonal skills creating a synchronized system.


    “You have to understand and respect how everything impacts everything else,” says Dr. Julien. “The dynamics of relationships in terms of how people communicate, the things that impact our feelings like safety and belonging and feeling valued are part of this. And that’s true for companies, communities and even families.”


    It’s Dr. Julien’s goal is to foster a sense of collaboration among divergent interests within an organization. People need to support each other, enable each other, empower each other, educate each other and everyone has a role to play.


    “If you can build a really effective working relationship with people around you, you can see the relationship dynamics of other environments, things you might do to support change in your own family.”

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Margo Boster of ImpaQ Solutions

    in Business

    Scottsdale, AZ – Studies confirm the importance of leadership development and the positive impact effective leaders can have on company performance. Organizations committed to leadership development often outperform their competition.


    Margo Boster is the co-founder of ImpaQ Solutions, an organizational consulting firm concentrating on the people side of business. ImpaQ Solutions works with clients nationwide to improve business and organizational achievement while enhancing the experience of the people within those businesses. Margo specializes in providing effective leadership and management development that includes coaching, assessments and organizational support.


    “Sometimes a business is successful, but they don’t understand why they’re successful and what they need to do to continue to succeed,” says Margo. “We work with companies to help them do more than they ever thought possible.”


    When a company experiences rapid growth there may be a new team working together. People get promoted because they were good at what they did. But just because they were a good contributor or manager does not mean they’re going to be a good executive or leader. Margo says she’ll often be called in to an organization when a team is not working together cohesively and performing as well as they should.


    “I was them. I was that manager. When I became a leader I learned the hard way. So it’s not theoretical to me. I understand it and relate,” says Margo. “I’m very good at listening and asking the right questions. A lot of what I do as a coach is to help them increase their awareness, willingness and skills.”
