8. Juli 2014
A New York Times Bestseller Introducing the new, realistic loyalty pact between employer and employee. The employer-employee relationship is broken, and managers face a seemingly impossible dilemma: the old model of guaranteed long-term employment no longer works in a business environment defined by continuous change, but neither does a system in which every employee acts like a free agent. The solution? Stop thinking of employees as either family or as free agents. Think of them instead as allies. As a manager you want your employees to help transform the company for the future. And your employees want the company to help transform their careers for the long term. But this win-win scenario will happen only if both sides trust each other enough to commit to mutual investment and mutual benefit. Sadly, trust in the business world is hovering at an all-time low. We can rebuild that lost trust with straight talk that recognizes the realities of the modern economy. So, paradoxically, the alliance begins with managers acknowledging that great employees might leave the company, and with employees being honest about their own career aspirations. By putting this new alliance at the heart of your talent management strategy, you'll not only bring back trust, you'll be able to recruit and retain the entrepreneurial individuals you need to adapt to a fast-changing world. These individuals, flexible, creative, and with a bias toward action, thrive when they're on a specific "tour of duty"--when they have a mission that's mutually beneficial to employee and company that can be completed in a realistic period of time. Coauthored by the founder of LinkedIn, this bold but practical guide for managers and executives will give you the tools you need to recruit, manage, and retain the kind of employees who will make your company thrive in today's world of constant innovation and fast-paced change.

Reid Hoffman, co-founder of LinkedIn has a new book out called Alliance. The serial entrepreneur and now venture capitalist makes the point that people are no longer willing to be "Lifers" at companies who expect loyalty from them, while making no commitment to their professional development. Hoffman suggests rethinking this relationship as an Alliance in which both parties agree to go on a multi-year tour-of-duty with a defined end date and specific outcomes. While on this mission, the employee offers her best work and loyalty as long as the company provides the promised experience and training. When the tour ends, you either find a new mission or you let the employee move on in her best interest. To keep leveraging the relationship or possibly rehire the person later on, the book offers practical advice on how to build a corporate alumni network. Hoffman makes an important point, but as with so many books, there is no need to read two hundred pages to get his point. Great take away offered by Hoffman and his co-authors is a template for a Statement of Alliance that you can download from the book's website and use to formulate and seal long lasting alliances with your own employees. What is disturbing in this book and Hoffman's earlier book “The Start-up of You” is how heavily the content is geared towards his company Linkedin. His marketing is legitimate but could be more discrete.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You can't retain the best people forever 8. Juli 2014
Von Stephen Dodson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Great book. Reid and crew (Casnocha and Yeh) have written an excellent "how to" on managing large organizations. People are no longer lifers at companies, like in the days of Bell Labs, and instead of pretending that's the ideal way for big companies to retain talent, the authors write about the realities of managing great people. A corporation is by definition a temporary alliance of numerous people (investors, employees, consultants), and it's refreshing to read a book that is based on that definition. One of the book's key mantras is that companies are teams, not families.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An Extraordinary and Most Timely Book for Attracting, Retaining, and Developing Talent, 4. Juli 2014
Von Claudio Fernandez Araoz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
The Alliance is one of the most extraordinary books I've ever come across in my 28 years of experience as an executive search consultant and global expert on talent and leadership. It couldn't be more timely, and I have no doubt that it will have an extraordinary impact in the years to come. An absolute must for professionals and leaders.

The book is truly outstanding because it presents a war-tested method for helping individuals and organizations advance through a neat process of building effective transformational alliances between employer and employee, in clearly defined tours of duty.

The repetitive and successful experience of the authors practicing what they preach, as well as the many individual and organizational examples, make it at the same time credible, engaging, and practical.

The fact that their recommended practices have proven so successful in the Silicon Valley is particularly powerful, given the brutal competition for talent in this market. In addition, the Silicon Valley is an imperative place to watch as a vivid picture of what the rest of the world will look like in a few years when it comes to attracting, retaining, motivating and developing knowledge workers.

It is extremely well written, brief and to the point while still full of invaluable real examples. It is also as inspiring as practical, even including a very useful appendix with a model to use for defining a transformational tour of duty with an employee.

This book could not be more timely. From an employee perspective, the environment in which we are living demands constant learning, and properly crafted transformational alliances are one of the most effective ways to continue growing, changing, and learning. From an employer's standpoint, the upcoming shortage of critical talent due to globalization, demographics, and depleted pipelines of qualified successors make it urgent for leaders and organizations to become much better at attracting, retaining, motivating, and properly developing high potentials.

The Alliance is a must for any professional willing to stay competitive in today's volatile world, and even more essential for managers and leaders who want to succeed by surrounding themselves with the best, and helping them thrive.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Reframing the employer/employee relationship. 13. September 2014
Von Andres Alvarez - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
"We're happy to have you on the team. We expect a great future. Now, please sign this form that says we can fire you at any time for any reason."

The classic model for employment is gone. The days of job security are no more. While there are benefits to employees being able to easily switch companies, it has slowly created a culture with a problem. The employee/employer relationship has turned adversarial.

Employers are trepidatious to support employee growth because they fear employees are just waiting to hop ship. Employees want to look out for themselves, and have a problem with loyalty when they know they're expendable.

The Alliance addresses these issues and provides a solid foundation for how to reframe the relationship. Yes, spending your full career with a company is no longer likely. That doesn't mean there shouldn't be a lifetime relationship between companies and their employees. The Alliance explains how these can be mutually beneficial.

Companies should accept that most employees are only there for a short time. "Tours of Duty" are a good way to make sure that both the company and employee get the most of their time at the company. Employee networks are becoming more and more valuable. Companies need to be harnessing these to help both themselves and their employees. Finally, companies need to think about how they'll maintain contact with their employees if and when they leave the company.

If any of these sound like issues you've seen as an employer or employee, you definitely need to pick this book up. It's a quick read with a lot of pragmatic advice. It's time we start changing the employment paradigm, and I hope the Alliance catches on.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 'Harnessing the power of: skills, experience, & people productivity. 2. September 2014
Von Ivory Dorsey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
The tsunami of change presents two choices: Whine or Work! Having spent my entire adult life engaged and intrigued with the workplace, I find this book to be full of power and possibility when it comes to 'harnessing the power of skills, experience, & people productivity.' Like anything else, it will only work if you do. I have shared three of my favorite take-a-ways for your consideration:

(1)The Mind-set of employees, functional networking, & Corporate Alumni Networks
IT IS THE MIND-SET: A founder mind-set and a start-up mind-set doesn’t necessarily mean you are going to start your own company….An employee alliance is one that encourages entrepreneurial behavior. Having employees focused on the start-up of their career is a good thing; employees who don’t feel a pressing need to invest aggressively in their own careers probably won’t be capable of the quick, decisive actions that your company needs to adapt and grow. It is called “A founder mind-set.” They drive change, motivate people, and just get stuff done.” ~~”The Alliance”~Hoffman, Casnocha, & Yeh

(2)NETWORKING ON STEROIDS; INFLUENCING OTHERS TO ACT!---….If more companies studied corporate alumni networks, they would see that the cost of investing in alumni is much less than they might think, and the returns are much greater…Four Reasons to Invest in an Alumni Network… ”~~”The Alliance” pages 128-132

(3)This quote is just the tip of the iceberg:--“…There is a misconception that network strength equal your number of social media followers. Rather than fixating on raw numbers, consider if a person is connected to the right people and has the realistic ability to leverage those connections for useful information or to influence others to act….Knowledge is not valuable unless shared….Networking is an integral part of a mutually beneficial alliance…All else being equal, you learn how to measure network strength systemically…Lifetime employment might be over but lifetime relationship remains the ideal….”The Alliance” pages 110-127
