Are You Properly Addressing the Really Sticky Issues? | Conner Partners | Business change | Scoop.it

As professional change facilitators, we take on many roles when performing our duties: SME, educator, counselor, philosopher, etc. In my opinion, one that is among the most important in our profession, but not used nearly as much as it should be, is the role of provocateur.

Change Management is dead: Long Live Change Leadership

Change Management is dead: Long Live Change Leadership | Business change | Scoop.it

I remember back in the 1990's when I became a project manager. I especially remember my first project management course, in 1991, where the instructor dramatically announced that more than 50% of projects fail.

And today, in 2014, not much has changed. CIO magazine reports that the failure rate remains about the same.

David Hain's insight:

"When employees have to change, change fails. Plain and simple. The key lies in making employees want to change." Passionate plea form Jesper Lowgren.

Emotional and rational case for organizational change

Emotional and rational case for organizational change | Business change | Scoop.it
Employees’ emotions are where the momentum for real transformation lies

Many leaders excel at building the rational case for change, but they are less adept in appealing to people’s emotional core. Yet the employees’ emotions are where the momentum for real transformation ultimately lies.

Change management communications need to be targeted to each segment of the workforce, and delivered in a two-way fashion that allows people to make sense of the change subjectively.

Change is really a people process, and people being creatures of habit are typically resistantto adopting new mind-sets, practices, and behaviors.

David Hain's insight:

People change with their hearts - business cases only win minds!

Why Business Strategy is Changing

Why Business Strategy is Changing | Business change | Scoop.it

A shift in strategic thinking is underway as boards come to realise that they must respond faster to the changes shaping the global marketplace. The old notion of a set five-year plan has been transformed by the use of more emergent strategies, where assumptions about the future are tested more frequently and, if a new direction is needed, the business is fluid enough to be able to adapt quickly.

Business Planning is so essential that those that don’t do this are doomed to failure. The greatest threat to a ship’s captain is not having detailed navigation charts to steer his ship through uncharted waters.   Likewise, the greatest threat to a business owner is not having a plan on how to steer his business through difficult periods of economic slowdown or catastrophic market changes without suffering shipwreck.  http://www.mjfgroup.biz/business-planning/

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.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Project Management

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Project Management | Business change | Scoop.it

I’m an ENTP — what are you?

If you’re familiar with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) personality assessment, you know exactly what I mean, and you’re likely to respond with “I’m an INFJ” or one of the 14 other MBTI types. When you do, we each have shorthand for how the other prefers to think about the world.

Stefano Principato's curator insight, July 5, 10:59 PM
What is the Myers-Briggs?

The MBTI is a psychometric assessment that was first published in 1962, based on work that Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Cook Briggs, started as far back as the 1940s. These two psychologists worked from the typological theories of Carl Jung to develop four dichotomies with which they tried to capture our psychological preferences:

  • Energy source: Extraversion (E) versus Introversion (I)
  • Absorbing information: Sensing (S) versus Intuition (N)
  • Decision making: Thinking (T) versus Feeling (F)
  • Orientation to the outside world: Judging (J) versus Perception (P)

The benefits of mindfulness, or being fully conscious and aware of one’s actions and surroundings, have been well documented by psychological scientists. Advantages include decreased risk of burnout at work, improved mental health, and smarter decision-making, according to recent studies. Now, researchers are turning their attention to a potential new connection: mindfulness and creativity.
