AuditChic’s Anecdotes May 2019


PRODUCTIVITY AND TIME MANAGEMENT

We are all different, we work differently, we have different times and durations of productivity, and different strengths and weaknesses. This is why there are so many different approaches to productivity and time management and thousands of books on the subject. To improve productivity and time management we must understand ourselves and find what works for us. Business Insider issued a list of tips – 101 Time Management Hacks to Get More Done in Your Day and I promise there is something for everyone on this list! Check it out here – http://bit.ly/2YFPY9S

COMMUNICATION AND INFLUENCE

In today’s business world employees are looking for jobs that are more than satisfying, they are looking for jobs, careers, that give them meaning and purpose. We spend a third of our life at work, it should be meaningful. Stanford Business School just released a study on creating PACE – Purpose, Autonomy, Collaboration and Excellence in individuals and companies. The study, complete with organizational case studies, lays out what PACE is, how to activate it, and how to measure it. Tip: People will work harder for a cause than money. Check out the free white paper here – https://stanford.io/2WlauiK

WOMEN IN BUSINESS

Forbes recently published the article – Fixing Business’s Gender Inequality at The Root by Liz Elting addressing an interesting concept – gender inequality will not be fixed in business by Tone at the Top within organizations but rather must be addressed in a grassroots effort starting with education in universities. I would take it a step further and suggest it must be addressed throughout education in its entirety from elementary school on. Read the article here – http://bit.ly/2HwTxtn

INTERESTING IDEAS

There is much discussion today around business ethics, in fact I am speaking on ethical decision-making next month at the ACFE Global Conference. MIT Sloan Management Review recently published an article – The False Choice Between Business and Ethics by R. Edward Freeman and Bidhan (Bobby) L. Parmar that addresses The Separation Fallacy and how relationships play a role in how moral and ethical dilemmas are seen, or not seen. It is a fascinating and well written piece on ethics in today’s complex and fast paced business world. You can find it here – http://bit.ly/2ErqBRA

INDUSTRY NEWS

Scandals, frauds, bankruptcies, were supposed to at least slow down with Sarbanes-Oxley, Frank-Dodd, FCPA, UK Bribery Act, etc. But have they? Not according to The Economist. In a recent article – Scandals suggest standards have slipped in corporate America the authors examine the latest companies dominating media coverage such as Boeing, Facebook, Wells Fargo, Equifax and Goldman and the effect regulation, litigation and competition have on organizations in a capitalistic market.
