Leading Change: 3 Reasons Why Great Leaders Are Reluctant to Compromise

When you are leading change you will sometimes find yourself in a situation where you have to deal with compromise. Nothing wrong with that. The point is: we tend to overrate the value of compromise, and by doing so we reduce the chance of achieving successful and lasting change. Change that is really inspiring people and is based on true commitment.

The Discipline of Innovation - The Discipline of Innovation

The Discipline of Innovation - The Discipline of Innovation | Business change | Scoop.it
My goal here is to help people that are trying to build a better world. I want to help make work more interesting. I hope that we can work together to do that. This is why we need to think of innovation as a discipline.
David Hain's insight:

From the blog...

 

In the introduction to a reprint of Peter Drucker’s article The Discipline of Innovation in a best of Harvard Business Review edition, the editor writes:

How much of innovation is inspiration, and how much is hard work? If it’s mainly the former, then management’s role is limited: Hire the right people, and get out of their way. If it’s largely the latter, management must play a more vigorous role: Establish the right roles and processes, set clear goals and relevant measures, and review progress at every step. Peter Drucker, with the masterly subtlety that is his trademark, comes down somewhere in the middle. Yes, he writes in this article, innovation is real work, and it can and should be managed like any other corporate function. But that doesn’t mean it’s the same as other business activities. Indeed, innovation is the work of knowing rather than doing.

In other words, innovation is not an art, it’s a discipline – and that’s why I’m changing the name of the blog to The Discipline of Innovation.

John Michel's curator insight, August 25, 2013 1:14 PM

Innovation can be a company’s most powerful tool and a key driver of value. Yet many executives, fearful of the risks inherent in pursuing edgy new ideas that may not succeed, hesitate to unleash its full potential. They prefer, indeed, to renovate rather than to innovate.

Perverse Incentives and Personal Greed: A Recipe for Innovation Fatigue

Perverse Incentives and Personal Greed: A Recipe for Innovation Fatigue | Business change | Scoop.it

A former technical expert at one of the world’s most famous consumer product companies told me of a hiring decision that made $80,000 for one executive, hurt several careers, cost the company millions of dollars, and crushed innovation in a once-promising unit of the company. This recipe for innovation fatigue has numerous variations, but they all combine poorly considered incentives coupled with selfishness in those who can exploit the incentives at the cost of corporate health.

I have spent 35 years undoing and replacing what I called Toxic practices in business that kill success. Incentives, reward & recognition, 360 degree feedback. My list has 37 at the moment. And then giving them ones that work. I am curious how this book replaces those so will check it out. Check out The Responsible Business and the substitutes it offers to Toxic Practices. I agree. They are rampant and prized,unwittingly, I fear.

Bryce Wettstein's curator insight, September 15, 2013 8:37 PM

This is a great article about how to deal with ambiguity in a business. It gives a few tips on different ways to cope with uncertainty and to aid with decision-making during those stressful times. It also talks about not being afraid to be wrong, and that when you are wrong, first fix the problem and then frame it as a learning opportunity instead of dwelling on the negative. Especially important is #8 which speaks on "gut feelings" and how to listen to them.

Sorry again for the delay.thankx for your comments.

"93% believe leading and managing are two different things"

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, August 23, 2013 9:29 AM

They did learn the buzzwords, and they know what is in the air in the mainstream management literature, that's for sure... they are stars and, of course, visionaries... they say, leading and managing are different but they are helluva good managers as well about their closed circle and that's management about, it's pretty sure too... However, it would be very interesting to have also a 360 review about their activities to see more clearly...:-)))
