Development in the Role of Human Resources Leadership

Posted by Ahmad Faizal Ginanjar Thursday, 15 December 2011 0 comments
In order to be recognized as a successful HR leader, there are three roles you must manage. The first is the ability to implement organizational strategy. The second is controlling the strategic planning process by sorting through the positive and negative outcomes associated with making a decision. Lastly, one must manage the formulation of a strategy to protect against the negative effects caused by unexpected outcomes.

Working to obtain a human resources certificate, you will learn what it takes to become an efficient manager. You will be able to understand and explain the three major roles of HR. Additionally, you will learn how to control business strategy and make alterations to current strategy. This will lead to more successful business activity. As an HR leader, it is important to be able to be conversant about issues that may delay positive decision making and develop solutions “on the fly” to these problems. This agility is a common benchmark of successful human resources leadership.

Human resources leadership as a theory has been changing and reinventing itself over the past 30 years. HR started as a very conformed and structured area of business and has developed into a strategic and open-ended one. In circumstances of constant change, it is crucial to understand what HR leadership means right now, at this very minute, and what it means to be a successful HR leader today. Being a good strategist and leader are the first steps toward becoming a role model of human resources leadership.

These days we hear a lot about the concept of human resources leadership and many are unsure what it actually entails. In order to understand how HR has developed, we will take a look back through the history books. During the 1970s, the job of an HR leader was to act like a police officer and make sure the managers did not make illegal or discriminatory decisions. This was in response to the equal-employment opportunity legislation of the 1960s. It was during the 1970s that the Supreme Court was deciding what was legal within the employment context, especially with regard to employment discrimination.

Around 1980, the recession in the US forced many companies to cut back and lay off employees. Traditionally, HR had been one of the first groups to get downsized. HR leaders were forced to decide what role they should be playing and what changes had to be made in order to ensure that next time a downsizing came along that they would not be the first ones cut off. Their job role had to be viewed by others as important and necessary to the running of a business. Therefore, the idea of strategy in HR was developed and put into action. Originally, strategic HR was heavily based on functionality. Every role and job related to HR had to somehow work into the overall strategy of the business model.

Once 1990 came along, another recession occurred which led to yet another rethinking of the role of HR. Dave Aldrich wrote two books entitled Organizational Capability and Human Resource Champions. These books became models that would redirect HR thinking during the 1990s. Within these examples was the idea of a strategic partner; this meant that HR should partner with business leaders to help the company develop its strategy. Additionally, Aldrich recommended restructuring HR to make it more effective and efficient through the three-legged-stool concept. The first leg was the HR manager out working with the businesses in the field. The second leg was the corporate centers for excellence, which consisted of the training function, the staffing function etc., located largely in the corporate headquarters. The third leg was the transactional aspect of the employee relations, and the handling of day-to-day transactions that take place within HR.

Another global recession and rethinking of the role of HR occurred during the beginning of the 21st century. During this time, the three roles of HR leaders were determined: implementer, controller, and manager. From this point on, future HR leaders will learn what it takes to be an ultimate director in the field by completing a human resources certificate training.

Life in the Fast Lane: Why Leadership Training Should Get Us to Slow Down

Posted by Ahmad Faizal Ginanjar 0 comments
"There's never enough time. I'm behind at work, at home, everything seems to pile up. My team members seem to have an endless supply of complaints that need my attention. How can I find time to listen to all of that when I have so many other demands on my time?" Many leaders fall into this trap. It's like the old saying, "The hurrier I go, the behinder I get!" It is a common lament in leadership training, "This all sounds nice but how in the world can I possibly find time to do this? I can't do everything that is expected of me as it is."

As a part of a major change effort, the leadership team of the small electronics factory had implemented a system in which the teams could identify obstacles to their objectives and present them to management. Sometimes these issues were presented with proposed solutions but sometimes the problems were outside of their scope of authority, abilities, or access to resources. Each week the leadership team reviewed the issues and made decisions about what to do. They had committed to respond to 100% of the issues with one of three responses:

1) Yes! We will take action right away.

2) No! We are not going to take action and here is the reason. The "no" responses were always delivered face-to-face. No e-mails or memos!

3) Maybe! If the response was a "maybe," it was assigned to a member of the leadership team with a date for resolution.

The team who identified the issue had the right to ask for the status of the issue and had the final word on whether the issue was closed or not. When the leadership team first agreed to this process, they believed that they would need to deal with a dozen or so issues each week, a manageable number. It was not long before we all realized that was a massive underestimate. Issues poured in by the hundreds. Soon, the leadership team began to complain that the process took all of their time. They were getting behind on their other tasks, working long hours, starting to feel out of control. So, we did some problem solving.

One question we asked was, "How many of those other tasks do you really need to be doing?" The leadership team then went through an analysis to see what tasks could be given up. Many of the things that they had been doing were simply done out of habit. Reports that nobody read. Unnecessary double-checking that added no real value. Meetings that no one wanted to go to. Etc. The result was a little like cleaning the clutter out of your office. By the time they were done, they found that they had plenty of time to deal with the issues coming from the teams. In fact, once they started making real progress on resolving the team issues, they had even more time than they did before. Wisely, they used that time to do a better job of thinking strategically about the future and to attending development activities for themselves. Their conclusion was that our real work is responding to these issues.

One of my largest clients has not yet learned this lesson. Their culture is a fast-paced, demanding one. It is not uncommon to hear hallway conversations like this. "Wow, I worked 50 hours last week." "Oh, that's nothing. I work 60 hours every week." "In my department if you don't work at least 70 hours, they think you are slacking." It is a contest. In fact, little more gets done in environments like that than in companies where employees work far fewer hours. It is easy to look busy. Putting in the hours is not the same as getting things done. Actually, it is often true that less gets done in organizations where people put in extremely long hours than in environments where people are highly engaged for shorter periods of time. The high-pressure environments are often plagued by:

• High turnover. Turnover is expensive. The average cost to replace a competent employee who quits is about 1 and ½ times that employee’s salary.

• High stress. Stress is expensive. It translates into more absenteeism, higher medical costs, increased errors, poor productivity.

• Poor morale. People complain, withhold information, slack off, subtly sabotage organizational goals, retaliate, point fingers, etc.

• Game playing. People channel their energy and creativity into finding new ways of making their supervisors and managers miserable. It is amazing how cunning an unhappy team member can be.

• Less creativity. People's ability to think clearly and in new ways is just not as effective when they are fearful and fatigued.

Some companies have programs to increase work/life balance. That is, employees are expected to work hard but not to extremes. They should take vacations, go see their child in the ballet performance, have a date night with their spouse and so on. In some companies, this is genuine. Their leaders recognize that a whole person with a real life outside work makes a better team member than one who lives only to work. In other companies, however, it is just so much lip service. The joke often goes like this, "We have a meeting every morning at 6:00 a.m. to discuss the new work/life balance program. It's the only time we could squeeze it into our schedule."

I often tell participants in my leadership training workshops that if their people are consistently working more than 40 hours per week, they have failed as leaders. Most jobs require the occasional week in which everyone has to roll up their sleeves and put in the extra hours. That is normal. But, if that is the norm, something is wrong. If people are always expected to work lots of extra hours, the team will lose sight of its real purpose. Good leaders want healthy, complete, whole human beings. It takes such people to make an effective team. Leadership training that encourages leaders to examine how they are scheduling work may be a step in the right direction.

Some leaders are overly demanding because they mistakenly believe it is a sign of loyalty or effectiveness. "Look how many hours my people put in." Others may do this because they are not good at saying "no" to the powers that be. Or they may be fearful that they will not look good when compared to their peers. This kind of behavior is exaggerated in companies where performance reviews include strong ranking systems. If their team members don't put in an excessive number of hours, their wages will suffer or they may even be in jeopardy of losing their job.

Whatever the reason, learning more effective communication skills will help. Listening, really listening, to your team members can go a long way toward helping them be better problem solvers, more independent, creative, productive, and more likely to pitch in when you really do need extra effort. Being able to confront respectfully when the behavior of a team member, peer, or manager is interfering with your ability to be productive can make a significant difference in your effectiveness.Leadership training that emphasizes learning these skills and how they can help make the team more productive will free you up to do the kinds of things that leaders need to be doing. You will have more latitude to schedule development activities, think clearly about strategies, and coach your team members when they really need it. It will also make an impact on your life at home. The old cliché is, how many people would have, "I wish I spent more time at the office," engraved on their tombstone?

How to Build Effective Metaphors

Posted by Ahmad Faizal Ginanjar Wednesday, 14 December 2011 0 comments
Metaphors are a double-edged sword. If it works, it can lend your piece an extra-special color; if it slips, it can destroy leave your meaning confusing and muddled.

You’ve probably experienced it yourself. Some of the world’s most memorable speeches, after all, use metaphors that conjure a very vivid image in the audience’s mind. In the same way, even a well-written piece, duly worked on by an advanced writing software, can leave you bewildered when an off-base metaphor suddenly finds itself thrust in the middle of your reading.

Metaphors are also important is creating quality contents. This can make your writing good while you stick to the rules on how to use them. Moreover, your content can basically express a lot of meaning as you use metaphors to discuss your topic further.

What’s good about it? Simple, it draws your readers closer to your writing while they actually have their own interpretations while understanding the concept of your topic.

Excess use of metaphors is not really good but knowing how to use them well can help you a lot. It is because it gives your content a colorful glow which makes it clearer and interesting in the eyes of your readers.

Besides, it also helps to maintain every emotion that is express in your writing. It allows your readers to think behind what their eyes can see, thus, it makes them think further and imagine the picture in your writing.

What makes you a good writer? It is by knowing how you will create your content and to use the right words to describe the topic well. If you don’t have any ideas how metaphors play an important role in your content, then don’t worry about that.

Every problem has its own solutions and if you having a hard time in writing metaphors, there are ways that will help you out.

Whatever is your purpose in writing and where you will publish you work, metaphors are always allowed to boost your skills and creativity as you face your writing tasks. Just avoid bad metaphors so that you won’t mess up with your content later.

Most often, bad metaphors are the result of one of two things:

• Poorly-chosen comparisons. Some metaphors just aren’t the eight choices. Either they don’t improve clarity, they don’t match the subject of comparison or they bring absolutely no color to the discussion. The latter is especially common with beginning writers who are prone to using obvious and common comparisons.

• Mixed metaphors. The “mixed” part refers to conflicting halves of the comparison – the first part just doesn’t match the second, leading to writing that sounds awkward and forced. As a result, any impact the metaphor is supposed to achieve just ends up falling short.

When building effective metaphors, look towards the following guidelines to help you avoid the previous problems:

• Ensure consistency, making sure the entire statement relays a unified message.
• Make it easy to visualize, using words that paint a clear picture.
• Make it accessible, using familiar images that people can identify.

How to Write With a Basic Structure

Posted by Ahmad Faizal Ginanjar 0 comments
Structure holds a piece of writing together by giving it a framework, one that’s designed to satisfy your reader’s natural need for order. Whether you realize it or not, a genius idea is only as good as the manner in which it is presented, that’s why we’ve been harping over and over at the importance of using a robust writing software. Structure allows you to present your thoughts in a way that can help the reader take it all in, without requiring too much on their part.

It is very important that you know the basic structure for writing contents or even writing passages. A writer should know what to do before and during their writing task in order to avoid any bad writing later on.

Basically, most writers would always plan everything first before they will start writing the topic down. Planning includes what to discuss, what to consider, how to structure your contents and what are the necessary information that you will have to include in writing the subject. It’s like planning how your outline would work and your purpose in writing.

To create such good quality writing, make sure it’s content is structured effectively to avoid any weak points in writing. Normally, we should start from the basic.

The most common structure for writing is, knowing what’s the main idea of your topic and let it show from the beginning or introductory part of your content.

This always gives your readers a hint on what to expect later on while they continue to read your writing down to the last part.

Here are a few tips for you to apply:

1. Decide on a logical order right from the start.

Structure can change throughout the course of your writing. However, it’s always easier to revise a structured piece, compared to one whose ideas have been randomly patched. In order to truly master using structure, you must write with forethought and deliberate expressions. Organize your ideas (a mindmap is a good way to do this) before sitting down to write your first sentence.

2. Make your points quickly.
Present your evidence and write your arguments as quickly as possible. Don’t worry about word count or a lack of build-up – these are both things you can work on later during the editing phase. Instead, focus on writing each section of your piece in as brief and succinct a manner as possible.

3. Keep sections short.

How long should you keep up one argument? According to most experts, the magic number is 300 words. It’s short enough to read continuously, yet long enough to allow a full-bodied discussion. If you can relay the exact same ideas in even shorter paragraphs, however, go for it.

Coming Up With Your Structure

If you can’t decide how to structure your piece, try writing a one or two sentence summary of the thoughts you want to go into it. Most of the time, short summaries can organically reveal the correct framework that your subject requires.

How to Accelerate Your Writing Speed

Posted by Ahmad Faizal Ginanjar 0 comments
This has been everyone’s problem. Surely there are times where you want to speed up your writing so that you can complete your work on time. Not to mention all the pressures that you encounter while doing your task in writing.

But how is it possible to write fast while avoiding any difficulties in writing? There is nothing to worry about since there are expert writers who manage to write fast within an estimated amount of time.

There are lots of advantages if you can write fast. Most of all, you can be productive enough with your writing task. However, increasing your writing speed don’t just only end there, it also requires writing quality contents and there are techniques to do it.

Want to speed up your writing speed? Sure, there are tricks you can pull to hasten your workflow. If you want to really improve your process for the long term, though, here are things we believe you should be focusing on.

1. Setting goals. Without goals, you’re just another random writer waxing poetically on a page. Having goals let you know where you’re going at all times, quickly overcoming one of the most common excuses for procrastination – being unsure about what to do.

2. Setting priorities. Goals aren’t enough. You’ll have to prioritize each one too. Plus, you’ll have to take into account all the other things that you need to attend to, including children, spouses, errands and more. Being able to set priorities for all of those things is the true secret to a balanced life – one that will help keep writers on their path.

3. Sound planning. Writing fast depends as much on a solid plan as it does on your skills. The better you’ve prepared in the pre-writing stages, the smoother the actual writing can happen.

4. Compartmentalize your research. Complete your research materials before getting to work on the piece. If, during the middle of actual writing, you realize you need to verify some facts or get some new stuff, save them for later. In your timeline, always keep research work in isolated boxes.

5. Learn to write without editing. The secret to writing really fast is to understand your subject, let the words flow and worry about the rest later. Editing for one minute can set your writing process back for more than double that time, so avoid it at all costs.

6. Edit thoroughly. Save all your editing energy after the initial draft is finished. At that point, edit thoroughly, pulling out every trick you learned in school to improve your material.

7. Use automated tools to your advantage. There are many tools out there for career writers, from novel editors to screenplay organizers to grammar checkers. Used well, they can speed up your writing time like no other.

8. Never give up. Writing is hard, especially when you decide to take on it as a career path. Embrace that and realize that you probably wouldn’t be happier doing anything else. Otherwise, you would have changed course long ago.

Three is the Magic Number

Posted by Ahmad Faizal Ginanjar 0 comments
Have you ever heard of the tricolon? In writing, this refers to the use of a three parallel constructions in a series as a way to enhance your writing’s impact.

Many have proven its three magic in writing. have you use a tricolon in any of your writing tasks? Maybe you don’t know what a tricolon means or does it really exist but there are instances where you could have encountered it in your writing too.

To make it clearer, tricolon is a kind of sentence where it is consists of three independent clauses. Therefore, a single sentence can have three equal parts that can always stand alone.

The beauty of writing tricolon is that, it can draw your attention towards this kind of sentence easily. Generally, it is powerful yet so easy to understand. However, it is very explanatory and anyone can get the idea of the sentence without any problems at all.

In writing, it is best to use your creative way of thinking on how you will enhance your tricolon more. But others only end up in messing their own writing.

You can only write a tricolon successfully if you will just stick to the main idea that you are trying to point out in your sentence. There are two types of tricolon, the ascending and descending tricolon. The difference between the two is of course, the length of each phrase in every break.

You will see this employed all the time in great speeches, comedic routines and advertising slogans – three things that rely heavily on the impact that words will have on their audience. And using a tricolon, despite its latent simplicity, is one of the most dependable techniques for achieving just that. Provided you use a writing checker to make sure your grammar and spelling don’t get in the way, of course.
Want to see tricolons in action? Take a look at these examples and determine the impact of a tricolon:

“I came; I saw; I conquered.” – Julius Caesar

“…with malice toward none, with charity toward all, with firmness in the right…” – Abraham Lincoln, in the most famous expression of his second inaugural address

“…life, liberty and the pursuit of happoness.” – The Declaration of Independence

“Instead of language we have jargon; instead of principles, slogans; and instead of genuine ideas, bright suggestions.” – Eric Bentley

“Can I get you anything? Cup of coffee? Doughnut? Toupee?” – a punchline from the Dick van Dyke show, said to a bald man

Threes are well-noted in almost all forms of culture. As such, it isn’t surprising that they work so well in writing too. As a general rule, you should use tricolons for lists whenever applicable, such as when detailing only the most important features of a movie for a reviews (“It was fast-paced, exciting and filled with action from start to finish”) or when describing an object with adjectives (“The plan was cold, calculated and precise”). Not only are they easy to read, the triumvirate creates a natural rhythm too.
