There have been many hit and misses and lots of unnecessary frustration, but finally I think as a team we have hit the nail on the head and I am about to test it to the nth degree.
Flat Organisational Structure
Weaning employees off hierarchy-driven decision making has been a test of both patience and perseverance. Gen-Y's have been told that they need leadership in order to be successful, yet some of the most successful companies in the world, like Google, are saying quite the opposite. Their investment in a flat organisational structure has not only shown dividends on the balance sheet, but it has created a workplace and culture that the world-over admires and respects.
For smaller companies that have an established organisational structure, driven largely by an entrepreneur, it is more difficult to adapt to a flat organisational structure with the primary reason being that both parties; the entrepreneur and the employees, find it difficult to let go.
I have been travelling the world growing "my small business" and have found that it is almost impossible to be the leader I would have hoped to be, living the life I do. I certainly am no role model in this department, nor do I follow the many books I have bought over time on "how to be a good leader" no matter how much I try but ultimately fail in my pursuit.
According to the latest figures from Emarketer, Twitter is now the fastest growing social media networking site in the world.
Over the years, we’ve witness how Twitter has transformed into different versions of itself while maintaining the core elements. For instance, integration with other social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram, Photo Card to attach photographs and App Card to promote directly to mobile phone applications. Today, Twitter is recognized as the best social media channel for lead generation. And subsequently, is identified as a key marketing tool for brands everywhere.
Just this week, Twitter has unveiled an upgraded feature on its Twitter Cards program – the ‘Lead Generation Card’.
This Card is exactly as its name suggests – it generates leads.
Leadership styles is often thought to be a medium or larger business thought-process.
Having been in business now for 10 years, I certainly have had my fair share of employee attitudes.
It goes with the territory and it goes with my training as a Manager and ultimately leader of the organisation.
