Pay management requires a 21st century shake-up

Pay management requires a 21st century shake-up

Dr Jonathan Trevor

According to Dr Jonathan Trevor it's time to revisit the management of pay. Instead of using it to leverage value, it should be approached as a risk with the primary focus on protecting value.

In his paper 'From New Pay to the New, New Pay' Dr Trevor lays out some principles for consideration by the business and human resources communities. These include the suggestion that pay is an enabler not a driver and that it's like plumbing: it should matter only when it goes wrong.

New transformational leadership drives change

New transformational leadership drives change

Dr Jonathan Trevor

As network-based organisations evolve, the role of leadership is focused less on performance and more on change. 'Transformational leadership' is a move away from traditional forms of organising and traditional forms of work that are largely centred around performance and performance-in-role.

Conflict in the workplace

Dr Jonathan Trevor

Dr Jonathan Trevor is calling for a new approach to reward policy. Organisations, he says, are really struggling with the issue of performance and relative reward. It is leading to underlying conflict in the workplace, which he warns is discreet but ever present.

Opportunity or threat?

Dr Jonathan Trevor and Kate Tojeiro

Leaders of established and successful organisations must recognise and react positively to the deep-seated changes taking place in an operating environment where complexity is leading to uncertainty. The alternative - to exercise greater control and improve the existing model in order to survive - has a limited shelf-life..

Leadership, vision, cynicism and social issues

Dr Jonathan Trevor and Kate Tojeiro

Leadership plays a huge part in the transformation and visioning of the future organisation but cynicism is a major barrier in that process; and, as the operating environment becomes increasingly uncertain, vision is becoming more important than planning.

Beyond efficiency

Dr Jonathan Trevor and Kate Tojeiro

Dr Jonathan Trevor and Kate Tojeiro argue the traditional, bureaucratic organisation - based on execution and efficiency - is being replaced by network-based, informal structures as the industrial age disappears. Organisations need to cultivate a model of empowerment, development and liberation of talent within an organisation, to go beyond just merely seeking to exploit efficiencies, but to do something fundamentally different without reference necessarily to those above. The key to this empowerment, however, is trust!

For leadership read fellowship

Dr Jonathan Trevor and Kate Tojeiro

Social media needs to be seen in the context of what we're seeing as the emergence of distributed leadership, where organisations are becoming flatter, leaner, more empowered, more democratic and more knowledge intensive. According to Kate Tojeiro and Dr Jonathan Trevor, people are no longer waiting for permission from on high to engage with each other and to make something new and exciting. We're seeing a leadership change being driven by social media.

Cutting the mustard

Dr Jonathan Trevor and Kate Tojeiro
