„It is my conviction that sustainable business is smart business. It gives us an opportunity to create value while helping to make a better world.“
Heinz Peter Wallner's insight:

SMARTE Führungskräfte aber gibt es immer mehr. Sie denken ganzheitlich, sie fördern Lebendigkeit im Unternehmen, behandeln Menschen als Menschen, können mit hoher Komplexität umgehen und sehen im Prinzip Corporate Sustainability die größte Erfolgschance. Das ist eine gute Nachricht.

Personal Renewal

Personal Renewal | Articles to read | Scoop.it

This is a speech delivered by John Gardner to McKinsey & Company in November 10, 1990.

 

Excerpt from the speech: 

 

We have to face the fact that most men and women out there in the world of work are more stale than they know, more bored than they would care to admit. Boredom is the secret ailment of large-scale organizations. Someone said to me the other day "How can I be so bored when I'm so busy?" And I said "Let me count the ways." Logan Pearsall Smith said that boredom can rise to the level of a mystical experience, and if that's true I know some very busy middle level executives who are among the great mystics of all time.

 

Learn all your life. Learn from your failures. Learn from your successes, When you hit a spell of trouble, ask "What is it trying to teach me?" The lessons aren't always happy ones, but they keep coming. It isn't a bad idea to pause occasionally for an inward look. By midlife, most of us are accomplished fugitives from ourselves.

 

The things you learn in maturity aren't simple things such as acquiring information and skills. You learn not to engage in self-destructive behavior. You leant not to burn up energy in anxiety. You discover how to manage your tensions, if you have any, which you do. You learn that self-pity and resentment are among the most toxic of drugs. You find that the world loves talent, but pays off on character. 

You come to understand that most people are neither for you nor against you, they are thinking about themselves. You learn that no matter how hard you try to please, some people in this world are not going to love you, a lesson that is at first troubling and then really quite relaxing. 

Those are things that are hard to learn early in life, As a rule you have to have picked up some mileage and some dents in your fenders before you understand. As Norman Douglas said "There are some things you can't learn from others. You have to pass through the fire.'

The holes in holacracy

The holes in holacracy | Articles to read | Scoop.it

Will conquering Zappos help holacracy thrive in the brutally competitive market for management ideas? There is good reason to be sceptical. “Nine-tenths of the approximately 100 branded management ideas I’ve studied lost their popularity within a decade or so,” wrote Julian Birkinshaw of London Business School in the May issue of the Harvard Business Review. Among the latest cast-offs, it seems, is Google’s much-admired “20% time”, in which workers got a day a week to work on their own projects; the company is reported to be quietly sidelining it.

#CultureCode: Designing a Culture of Innovation

#CultureCode: Designing a Culture of Innovation | Articles to read | Scoop.it

IDEO knows a thing or two about building businesses: The renowned design firm specializes in designing organizations, products and experiences that will revolutionize the way things work, and has helped revamp companies ranging from Kraft Foods to the National Health Services. So how did the international agency go about creating an innovative workplace of its own?

Building and developing a creative culture among employees has been at the core of IDEO from its founding, says Duane Bray, head of global talent. Indeed, IDEO’s culture has been written about by Harvard Business Review, among other publications.

The foundation of its culture rests on seven principle values, which IDEO published in the Culture Code campaign.

Do We Need A Revolution In Management?

Do We Need A Revolution In Management? | Articles to read | Scoop.it

“Do we need a revolution?” ask Clayton Christensen and Derek van Bever in the June 2014 Harvard Business Review (HBR). “The orthodoxies governing finance are so entrenched that we almost need a modern-day Martin Luther to articulate the need for change.”

 

When “the world’s most influential business thinker” calls for a revolution, maybe we should pay attention. The “revolution”, says the article, would have three parts. (1) “New ways to assess investments in innovation… (2) We should no longer husband capital. It is abundant and cheap… and (3) …new tools for managing the resources that are scarce and costly.”


One immediate question: is the needed revolution about acquiring new tools or new management mindsets? New tools applied with existing mindsets risk leading to more of the same. In fact, could applying new mindsets to the existing tools go a long way to the revolution that the HBR article is talking about?

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 2, 2014 1:32 PM

Quite often, what passes as reform, including management and leadership, is simply shuffling deck chairs around. We need something that reconstructs management and leadership, rather than heaping the latest fad onto what is not working.

Quote:

"With intent-based leadership, you must take time to let others react to the situation as well.

You have to create a space for open decision by the entire team, even if that space is only a few minutes, or a few seconds, long. This is harder than in the leader-follower approach because it requires you to anticipate decisions and alert your team to the need for an upcoming one. In a top-down hierarchy, sub-ordinates don’t need to be thinking ahead because the boss will make a decision when needed."

Some useful tips to encourage better collaboration. Encouraging to note that the author recommends "alone time", i.e.time to reflect, learn and prepare. Managers need to recognise that not all of the best work is done in teams and through collaboration. Personal knowledge development is so often overlooked.

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020 | Articles to read | Scoop.it

Last week I was sent a link to an interesting infographic on the ten most important work skills in 2020. It is a graphic respresentation of research done by the University of Phoenix and the Institute for the Future (see their PDF report here). What I like about this is that the team that put it together has looked at the significant drivers of change in society and then worked out what work skills will be required to address these. It’s a thought provoking read for parents, educators and businesses alike. Whilst none of the skills listed are really new, the emphasis is on their growing importance. The timeline is only 6 years away anyway, and so the focus was not on new skills but on what is becoming vital for success right now in our workplaces. You can find the infographic here, and a summary of their points below......
