A human resource theorist says one of the best strategies for making sure employees understand the differences between their job duties and their job responsibilities could be the introduction of a new system that identifies and addresses human resource differences.
In a new book, Lean In: The Art of Managing Workplace Differences, Sheryl Sandberg explains how a system could help managers better manage their employees.
The book comes out on September 16.
Sheryl’s advice: “If you’re not doing something to help your employees understand what their responsibilities are, they’ll think, ‘What do I have to do to get to that?’
That will be a very scary moment for them.”
Sheryl, the co-founder of Facebook, told Business Insider that she’s worked to help companies understand how their employees work.
“I think one of my biggest insights into how to work in a way that is really effective is that it helps the people who have a problem understand how they can solve it, and how they’re not going to lose their job,” she said.
In her book, Sherry says her strategy for helping her employees understand their responsibilities was to show them how the system works.
In the book, she describes the new system as the “Big Picture System.”
Sherry said the Big Picture System is different from the previous system because it does not use words or symbols.
Rather, it uses two main components, the “big picture” and “small picture,” that show how the organization’s system is changing.
“Big picture” tells employees what to think about, she said, which she describes as a “big, big picture.”
She added that she is using the word “big” because she wants people to think that the system is “bigger than the size of your phone.”
Small picture tells employees how to solve problems, such as how to handle distractions, and is more subjective, and therefore less specific.
“When you say, ‘How can I get the people to understand this?’ that’s when the big picture starts to become really important,” she added.
“The smaller picture is all about the people, and the people understand how to do this.
And then you really get into the big, big, and then the small, and you get into how we do it.
It’s like a huge, massive iceberg that you can’t get into.”
Shery said she wanted to give her employees a clearer understanding of what their roles were, but also provide them with the tools they needed to manage the task.
“What we’ve been working on is getting people to have a more intuitive understanding of their roles,” she told Business Insider.
“And the bigger picture helps them to understand their role.”
Lean In is a book written by Sheryl and Daniel Nussbaum.
It focuses on the role of women in corporate America and how women can be leaders and improve the workplace.
“Lean In” is a new edition of SherylSandberg’s best-selling book, The Lean In Handbook, which is now available for pre-order.
“We are working on a big project for this year and we want to do a Lean In book that we hope will be more than just a summary,” Sheryl said.
“This is going to be a long and hard road, but we want Lean In to be the definitive guide to how we work together to solve the challenges facing our industry.”
Sherly is working on the book for the next few months.
She said she will be sharing updates about Lean In on her social media channels and also sharing some of her ideas about how to build a Lean Insystem.
“If there’s a Lean Idea I can get to you, that’s great.
If there’s not, I want to share it with you,” she wrote on Instagram.
“That’s how we are building a Lean System.”
LeanIn, she says, is a “great example” of how a company can “get out of the way of its people.”
“We know that it’s hard to build trust and relationships when we are too big and have too many people,” she continued.
“So I want LeanIn to be like that.”
