    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?

    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.”

    The Dark Underbelly of Leadership Part 3: Self-Awareness and Leadership

    in Culture

    As the Dark Underbelly of Leadership series continues, it wouldn't be complete without a program on Self-Awareness.


    According to Chris Lowney, former Jesuit and bestselling author of “Heroic Leadership,” leaders thrive by understanding who they are and what they value, by becoming aware of unhealthy blind spots or weaknesses that can derail them, and by cultivating the habit of continuous self-reflection and learning.


    Easier said than done. So, the question becomes, "How am I showing up?" and how does it impact my reputation, my success, and those who choose to follow or co-create with me?


    We are a culture obsessed with celebrity so the idea of a leader who puts the success of the organization and those with whom s/he works ahead of him or herself, well, it just doesn't get much press.


    Hosts Linda Lombardo and Joss Rowlands take a deep dive into self-awareness from the perspective of leadership and share the "extra" dimension that only self-awareness can bring to a leader and ultimately, her or his success.
