Sick of All the Employee Engagement Talk? It’s Far From Over

Fri, 2017-01-06 15:34

Some people have gotten fed up with the hoopla surrounding employee engagement, as evidenced by these articles from Fistful of Talent, HR Magazine and ERE Media. It’s not hard to understand their feelings.

...However, I came across a Forbes article written by Karl Moore and Vincenzo Ciampi, who make a compelling case that the engagement crisis is NOT a group problem, at least not at its core. In “Leadership Engagement Always Trumps Employee Engagement,” Moore and Ciampi argue that “engagement is a leadership issue that the CEO must address, period.”

Le Brésil se tourne vers l’OMC pour contrer Bombardier

Fri, 2017-01-06 15:28

"Il était plutôt prévisible que le Brésil décide de faire ça », a dit Karl Moore, professeur à l’Université McGill et observateur aguerri de l’industrie aérospatiale. Le Brésil montre les crocs tout simplement, selon lui, « et je crois que le Canada n’aura pas de problèmes avec l’OMC."

Le programme CSeries avait attiré l’attention dès 2008, le gouvernement américain disant alors vouloir étudier de près les appuis gouvernementaux dont bénéficiait alors la compagnie. Bombardier avait affirmé que tout était conforme aux règles.

Zoe Yujnovich: ‘I actually really value listening to others before I speak’

Tue, 2016-12-06 12:30

One of the reasons I love the industry that I work for is the opportunity to experience different parts of the world. There are many differences across cultures, some a bit obvious – like the food we eat and the things we do. But in essence, there is a really strong commonality. People all over the world want to come to work, be recognized for doing a great job, and contribute to something that energizes them. Everyone wants to make a real difference.

LinkedIn: A networking tool for introverted leaders?

Fri, 2016-11-25 12:20

Written by Karl Moore 

Introverts would tend see networking as something they hate to do. But our research suggests that introverted networking can be powerful and an approach that an extrovert, like myself, should learn to emulate, at least part of the time. Rather than working a room the way an extrovert would, speaking to many people for a short time each, introverts often speak to fewer people but have longer, more detailed and richer conversations.

One of Bombardier's largest Canadian rail customers has threatened to cancel a contract over continued delays in delivering a prototype train in Toronto, handing another blow to the beleaguered company.

Metrolinx ramped up pressure on Bombardier by issuing a formal notice of intent to terminate its $770-million contract after the company missed a commitment to deliver a prototype by the end of last month.

McGill University management professor Karl Moore said the ongoing rail challenges make people a little nervous about giving funding to a firm that appears incompetent.
