Leadership and the emotionally battered employee

first_img 53SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Sometimes we inherit them. Perhaps they’ve been hurt by other people within the organization. It may have been their manager, executive, or even the CEO. It may have been you. But there they are, sitting in front of you, obviously hurting, maybe even angry.So what do you do? How do you handle it in that moment?Well, the servant leadership perspective is going to be a little different from a traditional management approach in that a traditional management approach is likely going to be more geared toward figuring out the fastest and easiest way to get that employee back to functioning as quickly and efficiently as possible. Translation (from a traditional boss): How the heck can I get this emotional mess of an employee out of my office and back out there doing their job as soon as possible? Isn’t this what they should be paying a therapist for? Servant leadership, however, views employees as humans, and views humans holistically. Organizations are communities of humans, and as such, there are going to be times where healing is necessary. As leaders, it’s incumbent upon us to serve our teams by helping them along this journey. continue reading »last_img read more

Maersk Makes Good Start to 2019, Launches USD 1.5 Bn Buyback

first_imgDanish shipping major A.P. Møller – Mærsk made good progress on its transformation in the first quarter of 2019 as its increased earnings and strengthened its balance sheet.Maersk closed the first quarter of 2019 with a 33% increase in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA), which reached USD 1.2 billion in the period, while revenue grew by 2.5% to USD 9.5 billion compared to the first quarter of 2018.The company’s underlying loss from continuing operations stood at USD 69 million, shrinking from a loss of USD 329 million reported in the same period a year earlier.Operating cash flow improved to USD 1.5 billion and free cash flow was USD 3.5 billion, including sale of shares in Total S.A.“We had a good start to 2019,” Søren Skou, CEO of A.P. Moller – Maersk, said, adding that the company has significantly strengthened its balance sheet.Profitability in the company’s Ocean sector increased. EBITDA grew 42% to USD 927 million compared to same period last year, mainly driven by a 3.9% increase in average loaded freight rates and an improvement in total operating cost of 2.8%. Revenue increased to USD 6.9 billion despite lower volumes which declined 2.2%, impacted by the frontloading seen on the Pacific trades in the fourth quarter of 2018 and weak demand on Latin America and Oceania trades.Looking at terminal profitability, the opening of the Moin terminal, Costa Rica and positive underlying volume growth in gateway terminals had a positive impact on terminal profitability in the first quarter of the year. Terminals & Towage reported an increase in revenue to USD 991 million from USD 911 million and in EBITDA to USD 267 million from USD 244 million compared to same quarter last year.Maersk delivered combined synergies of USD 130 million from its strategic transformation in the first quarter. Cash return on invested capital (CROIC) improved to a positive 6.7% from a negative 5.9%, driven by higher earnings, strong cash conversion and a reduction in invested capital.“We made good progress on the transformation, where we have completed the separation of the energy businesses, further integrated our organisation and continued to improve our product portfolio. This resulted in a solid cash return on invested capital and delivery of synergies, getting us closer to our target of USD 1 billion by end of 2019,” Skou added.Furthermore, as part of the intention to distribute a material part of the value of shares received in Total S.A in connection with the sale of Maersk Oil, Maersk’s Board of Directors has decided to exercise the authority to buy back shares with a maximum value of DKK 10 billion (USD 1.5 billion).The program will run from June 2019 and over a period of up to 15 months. After execution of the program, the Board of Directors will evaluate the capital structure and outlook for A.P. Moller – Maersk with the intention to distribute additional cash to shareholders, subject to maintaining investment-grade rating.Looking forward, Maersk reiterated its guidance of an EBITDA of around USD 5 billion, including effects from IFRS 16.“We reaffirm our guidance for the 2019 results. We are still facing considerable uncertainties from weaker macro numbers as well as the risk from trade tensions and implementation of IMO 2020. In Q1, volumes on trans-Pacific trade between Asia and North America have shown signs of decline and new tariffs can potentially reduce expected growth in global container volumes by up to 1 percentage point,” Skou concluded.last_img read more

Secretary-General of WAWU, Kertist AugustusConcerns are being raised about the environment of industrial action in Dominica by the Secretary-General of the Waterfront and Allied Workers Union (WAWU) Kertist Augustus.Augustus said measures will be implemented to ensure a smooth industrial climate.This he says will pave the way for more investment in the country.“We are hoping that during the course of 2012, the Employers Organization and the Trade Union movement in Dominica will find some avenue where there can be a greater level of consultation in terms of areas where we have differences. Not only should there be a higher level of consultation with the employers of Dominica but we should also have this level of consultation with our administration because even at this level we realize that government has the ultimate say in terms of passing the necessary type of legislation that could help to promote this type of environment,” he said.Augustus says the union has written to government to explore ways whereby consultation could be conducted on a more regular basis. He says the Union is also hoping that personal feuds can be resolved without violence.“We hope as a concern and more so in recent times where we had two murders, that everything will be done in terms of ensuring that we are able to resolve our matters without utilizing this sort of force which has been the feature of relationships recently,” he added.Employers have been asked to assist with funds to execute a program on conflict resolution.Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more
