Our common and traditional approach to leadership hasn’t significantly evolved since the dawn of the industrial age. When it comes to managing people in a work environment, we’ve always treated workers like any other input: squeeze as much as much out of them as possible and pay them as little as possible.This idea was introduced nearly a century ago when the expansion of the US economy largely was based on industrial machinery. Workers were required to perform relatively unchallenging tasks and were easily replaceable. Companies motivated workers primarily with money, paying by the piece to reward those who produced the most widgets.But as we fast forward to today’s business world shaped by rapidly evolving technology and the far greater importance of institutional knowledge, creative thinking and sophisticated collaboration, the value of each employee has grown exponentially more important. Companies are focusing on innovation and unique differentiation – and almost exclusively are looking at people, not machines, to provide it.As workers have become increasingly more critical to the overall success of their organizations, what they need and expect in exchange for their work also has profoundly changed. Money no longer inspires performance as it once did. Being paid equitably will always be important as a driver of job engagement and productivity, of course, but people across the globe now have aspirations in their jobs that were virtually unimaginable in an earlier age. continue reading » 13SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

The reactions as soon as the schedules of this next tie were known did not wait. Reactions of outrage, such as Asier Illarramendi, the captain of the San Sebastian team, who did not hesitate to be very critical of his team’s match schedule in this Cup round, and did not bite his tongue. “You have worn the Copa schedules. Not even 48 hours to rest between matches,” wrote the midfielder Mutrikuarra, that anyway he was not going to be able to play the game when he was in the final stretch of his injury recovery. The anger inside the Real was very great.The Royal immediately called the Federation to complain about the schedule, Arguing that between a League and Cup match there must be a minimum of 48 hours for players to rest. And in this case it was not fulfilled, no matter how much the San Sebastian team plays their next two games at home, at the Reale Arena, and does not have to do any displacement. The Royal, in fact, with the regulation in hand could refuse to play at that time, something they have threatened to do if the federation did not change the day against Osasuna. The complaints have taken effect, the Federation has heeded the request of the Royal understanding that he was right and took the game to Thursday at 9:00 pm, a more logical schedule, because then Real plays Sunday at noon in the Leganés field, so it does meet the stipulated time between game and match. The cup draw held on Friday has crossed into Real Sociedad with Osasuna in the round of 16. The Federation initially determined that this meeting be held next Tuesday, at 7:00 p.m. It would be the match that opens the round of eighths. The Royal Society complained about not having 48 hours of rest between the League game that will be played this weekend and the Cup clash. So both the Federation and LaLiga have decided to change the schedule of two games. The Federation has delayed the Real Sociedad-Osasuna Cup on Thursday (9:00 p.m.), while LaLiga has passed Villarreal-Osasuna from Saturday, February 1 (6:30 p.m.) to Sunday 2 (6:30 p.m.)Those of Imanol Alguacil face in this league day to Mallorca on Sunday, at 6:30 p.m. For its part, Osasuna, the rival of the San Sebastian team in the Cup He played his league match this Friday against Levante. With the change of the cupbearer duel between San Sebastian and Pamplona, The Royal Society will have one more day of rest. Curiously, the new day set for the Copa match dispute coincides with a general strike in the Basque Country.
