The Most (and Least) Empathetic Companies, 2016 from Harvard Business Review

Guess what top global companies have (and which ones lack) the most empathetic cultures and retain the best talent?

 

This list surprised me!

Check it out here!

 

 

How was the research compiled? I find the combination of analyzing tweets, Glassdoor and reported scandals quite fascinating:

…We break down empathy into categories: ethics, leadership, company culture, brand perception, and public messaging through social media. Our publicly available metrics including CEO approval ratings from staff, ratio of women on boards, and number of accounting infractions and scandals. This year we added a carbon metric. The financial information came from S&P Capital IQ, and the employee information from Glassdoor. We analyzed 2 million tweets from between September 27 and October 16 this year. An additional source of qualitative data expanded the survey: We used a panel selected from the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leaders. The leaders were asked to rate the companies’ morality.

 

Steps to Turn Off the Nagging Self-Doubt in Your Head

Very good article on creating “good habits” with your thought patterns!

Think of the last time you told yourself something critical or negative. Then think of the last compliment you gave yourself.

Which is easier to remember?

Many of us—whether due to genetics, brain chemistry, our experiences or coping skills—tell ourselves way too many negative thoughts. We ruminate, thinking the same negative, unproductive thoughts over and over.

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

I am thankful for the gift of life. To celebrate, it is my pleasure to share an amazing TED talk.

Image-maker Alexander Tsiaras, Associate professor of medicine & Chief of Scientific Visualization at Yale University shares things that have never been seen before using new visualization technology. Enjoy this beautiful, short 9 minute video. Professor Tsiaras shares at the end of the video that their discoveries left him (as a mathematician) completely baffled – simply calling the complexity of the mathematical models of creation of human life, “beyond human comprehension. Divinity. A mystery.” http://www.bbc.com/future/story/20120702-conception-to-birth-visualized

Iconic Executives Without College Degrees

An advanced degree is certainly helpful in any business climate-no one disputes that. But degrees do not guarantee success and true entrepreneurs and leaders often have other special talents and virtues that empower them to achieve great success. I work with many executives who do NOT have their advanced degree and some have no college degree at all – and they share with me in confidence that they worry about the perception of that.

To be sure we are looking at the picture of success with eyes wide open, let’s take a look at just a very small list of executives (in no particular order) who did NOT obtain their college degree:

Ted Turner, Time Warner / AOL Philanthropist

Ralph Lauren, Ralph Lauren Corporation

Anna Wintour, English Editor-In-Chief of American Vogue

Sheldon Adelson, CEO and Chairman of Las Vegas Sands

Bill Gates, Co-Founder of Microsoft Corp

Steve Jobs, The late Co-Founder of Apple

Matt Mullenweg, Founder of WordPress

Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle

Arash Ferdowsi, Co-Founder of Dropbox

Mark Zuckerberg, Founder of Facebook 

David Neeleman, Founder of JetBlue Airways

Susan Lyne, CEO of AOL’s Content Brands

John Mackay, Founder of Whole Foods

Michael Dell, Chairman and CEO of Dell

US Services Sector Growth Jumps in July

WASHINGTON: Activity in the US services sector jumped in July, with virtually all non-manufacturing industries experiencing growth, the latest sign of building momentum in the American economy.

The Institute for Supply Management said on Tuesday (August 5) that its non-manufacturing purchasing managers index jumped 2.7 points, to 58.7 last month – a larger increase than analysts expected. Sixteen of 17 industries in the services sector, the driver of the US economy, notched increases, said the PMI report, which analysts said was the best since 2005.

“Conditions are improving,” according to one survey participant in the construction industry. “Business is still very good,” said a supply manager in retail trade. “Expecting continued growth in the second half of the year.”

The report is the latest to indicate that the US economy continued to strengthen in the second quarter after a soft first quarter blamed on extreme cold weather.

Last week, the US government said the economy grew by a robust 4.0 percent in the second quarter and that it has generated at least 200,000 jobs per month since February. A reading over 50 in the PMI report indicates growth. It has now shown growth for the 54th straight month.

The report said 16 industries reported growth in July, including construction, real estate, retail trade, accommodation and food services, and management of companies. The only sector to contract was utilities.

The report indicated growth in business activity, new orders and employment. However, the prices index dropped by 0.3 of a point from the June level to 60.9. Economist Jim O’Sullivan of High Frequency Economics said the report was “much stronger than expected, adding to the growing list of data showing a net pick-up in the trend in growth this year.”
