Espousing Equality, but Embracing a Hierarchy

Espousing Equality, but Embracing a Hierarchy | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Many companies aspire to a flat organizational structure, but a new paper finds that management serves a purpose that workers welcome: providing order in a chaotic world.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, October 8, 6:43 AM

recently published paper in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology suggests that hierarchies are a form of structure that we embrace for comfort in a chaotic world.


The paper, by Justin Friesen of York University, Aaron C. Kay of the Fuqua School of Business at Duke, Richard Eibach of the University of Waterloo and Adam Galinsky of the Columbia Business School, builds on the notion of compensatory control: When we feel a lack of personal control, we compensate by looking for order or predictability in our environment.

Tom Peters on leading the 21st-century organization | McKinsey & Company

Tom Peters on leading the 21st-century organization | McKinsey & Company | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
The only thing on earth that never lies to you is your calendar. That’s why I’m a fanatic on the topic of time management. But when you use that term, people think, “Here’s an adult with a brain. And he’s teaching time management. Find something more important, please.” But something more important doesn’t exist.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Great...:-))) Tom Peters interview... "I don't know" - he says after reading through the present management literature during the last 18 months ...:-)))

 

Yeahhh...  everything is different, the industry, the job, the country/culture, the people, the position, the situation, how on earth could 7 or 21 points would be valable for everything?! Each can grasp a moment in an industry, in a job, in a country etc. 

 

Who else could know it better than Tom Peters, author of the arguably most interesting 4 (?) books in the management literature where he has tried to run after the changes in the epoch... You remember? These books are evergreen, not because of the actual big thing they were around (each and every around another one... already then...:-))).

 

Let's enumerate them, they are  sooo important (for me, on my "map", IMHO...), they are full of living examples of real companies and you know, management is in a way like the mode in the rocks, there are a period of long rocks and then the short rocks then once more the long rocks and so on... 

 

- "In search of excellence - Lessons from America's best-run companies" - 1982 (with Robert H. Waterman Jr.

- "A passion for excellence - The leadership difference" - 1985 (with Nancy Austin)

- "Thriving on chaos - Handbook for a management revolution" - 1987 

- "Liberation management - Necessary disorganisation for the nanosecond nineties"" - 1992

 

“My real bottom-line hypothesis is that nobody has a sweet clue what they’re doing. Therefore you better be trying stuff at an insanely rapid pace. You want to be screwing around with nearly everything. Relentless experimentation was probably important in the 1970s—now it’s do or die.”

 

Two quotes from the interview

 

“The only thing on earth that never lies to you is your calendar. That’s why I’m a fanatic on the topic of time management. But when you use that term, people think, “Here’s an adult with a brain. And he’s teaching time management. Find something more important, please.” But something more important doesn’t exist… 50 percent of your time should be unscheduled. And second—and I love that this is coming from an Israeli intelligence guy—that the secret to success is daydreaming.”

The No. 1 Challenge to Innovation

The No. 1 Challenge to Innovation | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
The biggest challenge to innovation is not how to generate new ideas and opportunities. It’s how to make innovation a deeply embedded capability in the organization.

Via Peter Verschuere
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

"How many big opportunities have been missed over the decades by companies that were presented with some radical new idea but that lacked the right system for nurturing it and turning it into a market success story? Steve Wozniak, co-founder of Apple, originally pitched his personal computer idea to Hewlett-Packard, his employer at the time. But HP had no organizational mechanism for connecting a freaky engineer and his “crazy invention” with the political and financial infrastructures of the company. There was simply nowhere for his idea to go; no way to get a small amount of experimental capital and some time to test its potential; no coaches or mentors in the organization who could help him push his idea forward; no management processes that had been set up to support his work as an innovator. So instead Wozniak decided to throw in his lot with Steve Jobs, and the two friends went off to commercialize his idea from a Palo Alto garage. The rest is history..."

Top 5 Lessons Your Mother Taught You About Becoming a Successful Coach

Top 5 Lessons Your Mother Taught You About Becoming a Successful Coach | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Good... with one slight modification re the 1st "lesson"... 

 

The "Treat people the way you want to be treated" - this old and true adage is perfect in the completely balanced cituations, e.g. in a democracy every citizen should keep it in mind...  and in the coaching there is a slight plus, though it's highly emphasised as a partner-type of relationship...

 

With the slight modification I propose is not my idea, I don't know the source, the statement (the lesson what by the way the mothers know and practice also very well...) sounds like: "Treat people the way they wanted to be treated...." - I doesn't mean here that if he/she want to hide something from him-/herself, you should g with is, it doesn't mean that you should be slaverish or complacent with the coachee... it only means that you are "playing" with him/her on his territory, his map and it will never match completely yours, therefore, you'd better pay attention how he/she wants to be handled than searching for anything else...

"Le manque d'impertinence a des effets néfastes sur l'économie ..." - L'Usine Nouvelle | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Coach et professeur à l’école de management de Grenoble, Agnès Muir-Poulle publie aux presses universitaires de Grenoble un "Petit traité d’impertinence constructive". L’ouvrage décrypte pourquoi il est urgent de libérer la parole dans l’entreprise et comment cette libération est synonyme d’une plus grande efficacité. Dans l’interview qu’elle nous a accordé, elle revient aussi sur le bon usage de la vitesse et sur la façon dont le management doit évoluer pour s’adapter à la société et à l’économie du 21e siècle. Son constat est radical :  le caporalisme c’est fini !

Mascupathy: Giving a New Name to an Old Problem

Mascupathy: Giving a New Name to an Old Problem | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

“Mascupathy  is a mental health disorder, a pathology of masculinity, stemming from a socialized exaggeration of genetic masculine traits — aggression and invulnerability — and a reduction of inherent feminine characteristics — openness and sensitivity.


Via Jocelyn Stoller, David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Hmmm... pathology of masculinity... interesting idea... could it come from the environment, the parental milieu? And up to what limit is it a irresistible attraction to beautiful women (and as such a clear darwinian winning streak) and from what point is it the basis of every type of unnecessary violences (which could also be part of the evolutionary project)?

David Hain's curator insight, October 9, 1:43 AM

While three in 10 women and one in 10 men will face domestic abuse in their lifetimes, there are more factors that point to Mascupathy. According to Mother Jones magazine, between 1982 - 2013, 66 of the 67 mass shooters were men.

The author of this blog talks about the hierarchy of vulnerability. What each level of vulnerability is and the more vulnerable we make ourselves the deeper our connections can become.

You Are What You Tweet - The New Yorker

You Are What You Tweet - The New Yorker | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
When Mark Zuckerberg, the C.E.O. of Facebook, started appearing at local haunts in San Francisco’s Mission District last year, one blog speculated that he was attempting to “rebrand himself as a Mission hipster.” It’s an apt turn of phrase, one that conveys the casual predominance of “personal branding,” the practice that Zuckerberg’s company has popularized: managing your presentation—your behavior, appearance, reputation, online persona—to stand out in your professional and personal lives. The Oxford Dictionaries Online last week added the term “selfie”—the self-portrait taken in solitude and submitted to the gaze of millions, turning each of us into his own paparazzo. Although image maintenance is nothing new, the images we’re presenting are now available online, all the time, and are presumed to meaningfully represent us. Personal branding is the subtext of all social networking: when we post vacation photos, we attest to our ability to take luxurious vacations; when we post pictures of our babies, we present ourselves as proud and caring parents; when we crack wise about current events, we demonstrate our wit, relevance, and political leanings.

Nicolas Nassim Taleb's example... | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Taleb writes (on Facebook BTW):

 

“LEARNING TO DO NOTHING (Idleness as a BS detector/cleaner) - At the start of this year I resolved to do "nothing except if it felt like a hobby" i.e., "satisfy interests while providing entertainment value with zero pressure, no schedule and no feeling of duty". The rule is to wake up with the aim to "do nothing", have nothing scheduled and avoid the usual guilt (or shame) encountered by most when "wasting time" , have minimum committments and talk to NO journalist. Of course, cut everything unpleasant, no matter what the potential gain. Treat everything (including mathematics) the way a great-uncle of mine who was a man of leisure treated his afternoon game of bridge: intellectual concentration as entertainment.

RESULT: 12 academic papers (9 accepted so far), finished a book (Silent Risk)--well, almost, wrote 100 aphorisms, ate 2 Beijing ducks, learned to typeset books as a self-standing publisher, found 4 investments ... and this is 3/4 of the year.

NOTE: To do things make sure you have no assistant. They drag you into doing things for the sake of "work".”
