Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 29, 3:52 PM

Journey is an interesting word. It comes from the French journee which means day, but is not the day. Instead it signifies the progress during the day, a moment-to-moment process. Alfred North Whitehead called the recurring present holy ground where past and future fused. Being and becoming present, mindful, might be the most important part of the hero's journey. What makes me a better person and the world a better place?

Why Hierarchy Is Outdated: The (Long Overdue) Need For Organizational Adaptability

Why Hierarchy Is Outdated: The (Long Overdue) Need For Organizational Adaptability | Business motivation | Scoop.it
Hierarchy is outdated. The age-old system originally designed by the military and adopted by corporate America has been rendered obsolete for the simple fact that it promotes irrelevance. Here’s why.

Schools were organized according to a factory model and the leadership hierarchy adopted from the military.  Both models are outdated and need to be reconstructed with more shared accountabilities with an alignment on purpose.  However, a rudderless ship does not work, so the voice of a leader is still necessary....

As Work Gets More Complex, 6 Rules to Simplify

Why do people feel so miserable and disengaged at work? Because today's businesses are increasingly and dizzyingly complex -- and traditional pillars of management are obsolete, says Yves Morieux. So, he says, it falls to individual employees to navigate the rabbit's warren of interdependencies.

Kudos's curator insight, April 5, 11:45 AM

I have always been a big fan of simplicity.

 

It seems to be human nature and the desire of MBA's to want to complicate things by trying to measure everything with the false illusion we can then improve and tweak things to make a thousand process improvements that matter. In the end, we often measure things that do not really matter in the big picture. Think of all the layers of middle management that get added to manage, measure and track things that do not matter.  

 

Measuring some things is essential. Sales, Profits, Engagement. Those are the only measures that matter at the end of the day. And processes are are also essential but like the old saying - everything in moderation.

 

I liked the key message that Cooperation is secret to success. We build walls with too many processes. We need to keep people close to one another and aware of their interdependency and effect on one another so they think about how their actions and output effect other peoples outcomes and output.

 

If you connect people to solve problems through cooperation, you will get innovation and the the results you are looking for. Instead of trying to make everything easier by adding processes and layers, it better to make things harder by forcing people to cooperative verses work around one another with only their goals and objective in mind.

 

I see this in the struggle between design. programming and admin (Sales, Customer Service) all the time in the agencies and companies I have been part of.

 

- Programming wants things to be efficient and streamlined based on their sensibilities. 

- Design wants to create exceptional user experiences and artful design based on their sensibilities.

- Admins wants things to be simple and effective based on their sensibilities.

 

People always want things done their way based on their sensibilities and that can lead to low cooperation.

 

I will often hear when I ask for something - "that is not possible". Then then next questions I ask is "do you mean impossible or difficult" and the answer is always difficult. Then their is a discussion, some cooperation and often a compromise. The outcome is a better product, better service and 9 times out of 10 difficult was not so difficult after all.

 

If you keep everyone close to the product, customer and  one anther they will cooperate and compromise and that keeps things more simple.

 

The only problem with simple is... it is hard to keep things simple. Back to human nature an MBA's. 

 

In the spirit of keeping things simple, every employee manual in the world only needs these three words.

 

"Make Good Decisions"

 

Only if it was that simple. :)

Danger of Hierarchy in a Fast-Moving World

Danger of Hierarchy in a Fast-Moving World | Business motivation | Scoop.it

The basic strength of hierarchies is that if they are designed well -- the departments/silos make sense in light of your business strategy and your competition, there aren't too many levels, the rules that accompany the hierarchy are smart and sensible -- hierarchies can be an incredibly efficient and reliable way to get work done. In fact nobody has found a more efficient and reliable way.

 

The problem is that hierarchies change slowly to changing conditions, to new rapid-fire strategic challenges, to technological discontinuities. They're not agile, they can't jump to the left or to the right quickly. In today's world you have to be fast and agile, but you also have to be efficient and reliable.

 

So the problem is that a well-designed hierarchy is still needed but it's insufficient. You need two systems, one that can handle speed with agility, and one that gets the work done today with quality and efficiency. And the two have to work together hand in glove.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 2, 10:14 PM


A lot has been written in recent times on the subject of employee engagement, and business owners generally don't have the time to digest all the nuances embedded in the copious quantity of information available, so the essence of what is important is of more use to the average business owner.


Simply distilling  the information available relating to improving employee engagement levels, does not provide any form of guidance as to what to prioritise to make an earlier difference, therefore a different approach is needed.


This excellent article by a practicing global director of employee engagement, suggests that by connecting the brand and employees a business owner can make meaningful progress towards improving employee engagement levels, and it outlines the five areas of focus that are key steps to making this happen sooner rather than later.

John Michel's curator insight, April 2, 4:58 AM

There are many definitions within management and business literature of authentic leadership but, as a rule, authentic leaders tend to be genuine, transparent and trustworthy, display a strong moral code and can be counted on to keep their word.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 3, 5:37 PM

Authenticity starts with self awareness.  And self awareness is about understanding how you react and how your behaviour can affect others.
