Employee Engagement, Core Dimensions of Performance

I have always been a big fan of Peter Drucker, with his writings, theories and principles. For those of you who are unfamiliar with this management sage, he authored over 39 management books and was on the speed dial of many leading CEOs around the globe.  According to Wikipedia, Drucker taught that management is "a liberal art," and he infused his management advice with interdisciplinary lessons from history, sociology, psychology, philosophy, culture and religion.

Chick HERE How it will impact employees and consumers

 

This past Sunday CVS Health agreed to acquire Aetna for over $69 billion.  Wow! The new company, combining one of the country’s biggest pharmacies with one of its largest health insurers, will create a world where patients will get the “human touch,” they said. Fewer people will fall through the cracks, they promised, and getting high-quality, low-cost medical care will be as close as your corner drugstore.

The Responsibility To Create An Innovative Culture Lies With Employers

We recently came across an impactful study conducted by BMC, which was shared at last month's Davos World Economic Forum: http://bit.ly/2iBDIHc.  The theme for the annual meeting in Davos was Responsive and Responsible Leadership, as "traditional industries are being redefined and new ones are being created from scratch."

Tesla’s Play to Change the Auto Industry

My new favorite magazine is called The Week. It is only 35 to 40 pages long and does not have a lot of advertising in it. It reminds me of the Cliff notes version of Time or Newsweek. It is a synopsis of the week’s news through the eyes of bloggers, news bureaus’ op-ed pages and newspaper reporters. Any given article is no more than a half of a page long and summarizes the topic by providing quotes by reporters/bloggers who have written on the topic over the course of the week. I like reading it undisturbed by cell phones and tablets on Saturday afternoons while sipping a hot cup of tea or occasionally a glass of white wine.
