“You press the button, we do the rest.” These are the touching words of Kodak’s first advertising slogan. Coined by George Eastman, Kodak’s iconic founder in 1892, this tagline almost seems relevant 120 years later. Almost. There was a time in history where uttering those words evoked an emotional sense of nostalgia. Now, unfortunately, the Kodak moment represents that moment when executives fail to realize how consumers are changing and how markets will ultimately evolve in new directions withou

Leadership Development: The Path To Becoming Our Highest Self

Leadership Development: The Path To Becoming Our Highest Self | Change Champions | Scoop.it

We call ourselves “human beings,” but I think that title is aspirational: one we are meant to earn. Being human should mean we are capable of higher-level thought and can choose rationally how we respond to external events as well as to internal thoughts and emotions. Now, I don’t know about you, but all I need is to be cut off in traffic or have my husband use the wrong tone of voice to witness my own inability to do this well.

 

Perhaps the most surprising element in business today is that we often behave in ways that are extremely ineffective and quite beneath us. Even those among us who are highly educated senior-level professionals fall into these traps.

Organizational change is hard, but change is always happening. The difference is organizational change should be purposeful and meaningful to the people in the organization.

Problems are Interconnected -- And so are Solutions - The Donella Meadows Project

Problems are Interconnected -- And so are Solutions - The Donella Meadows Project | Change Champions | Scoop.it
The way it is usually told, the message Everything is Connected to Everything Else is not fun to hear. It is intended to cause repentance and reformation. More often, of course, it causes guilt, fear, and an uncontrollable urge to avoid environmentalists.

What we are rarely told is that solutions are as interconnected as problems. One good environmental action can send out waves of good effects as impressive as the chain of disasters that results from environmental evil.

Take energy efficiency, for example. That doesn’t mean deprivation of creature comforts; it means insulating houses, driving cars with better mileage, and plugging in appliances that deliver the same service for less electricity. Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountain Institute says we could reduce electricity use in the U.S. by 70% with already-proven and currently-economic efficiency measures. We could cut our $430 billion annual energy bill in half just by being as efficient as Japan and West Germany are.

Hannah Arendt contended that action is what transcends the space and time we exist in. Teaching is that way. What happens in this moment can transcend space and time, finding new solutions and creating new problems unexpectedly. If we teach children to be environmentally aware, it is a gift that will find its way into the future.

15 Uncomfortable Things That Will Make You More Successful

15 Uncomfortable Things That Will Make You More Successful | Change Champions | Scoop.it
In a truly beautiful letter to his daughter Yolande, Sociologist W.E.B. Du Bois extolled the virtues of being uncomfortable.
Yolande was headed to a new school halfway around the world from the neighborhood and people she knew. It was years before women had the right to vote, and decades before the Civil Rights Movement.
Du Bois knew she would have more than a few fish-out-of-water moments. Instead of trying to shield her from them, he asked her to revel in them:
“Don’t shrink from new experiences and custom. Take the cold bath bravely. Enter into the spirit of your big bed-room. Enjoy what is and not pine for what is not. Read some good, heavy, serious books just for discipline: Take yourself in hand and master yourself. Make yourself do unpleasant things, so as to gain the upper hand of your soul. Above all remember: your father loves you and believes in you and expects you to be a wonderful woman.”

The three key points are interesting: stop giving feedback unless requested, stop conducting one-on-one meetings, and stop motivating people.

In teaching, teachers are often treated as if they are irresponsible and unable to make choices themselves. The essential piece is to allow teachers to act autonomously and responsibly in seeking feedback. I subscribe to the idea that I want to be a teacher. It is a calling. I don't need someone intervening to motivate me. The challenge was/is most of the feedback was useless and demotivating.

CEOs Get Paid Too Much, According to Pretty Much Everyone in the World

CEOs Get Paid Too Much, According to Pretty Much Everyone in the World | Change Champions | Scoop.it
In their recent research, scheduled to be published in a forthcoming issue of Perspectives on Psychological Science, Chulalongkorn University’s Sorapop Kiatpongsan and Harvard Business School’s Michael Norton investigate “what size gaps people desire” and whether those gaps are at all consistent among people from different countries and backgrounds.

It turns out that most people, regardless of nationality or set of beliefs, share similar sentiments about how much CEOs should be paid — and, for the most part, these estimates are markedly lower than the amounts company leaders actually earn.

Stop Believing These Persistent Myths About Leading Change | Change Champions | Scoop.it
In one of our most-read articles here on Leadershipwatch ‘What Does Change Mean to You?’ I describe how change always has been and always will be a natural part of our lives. We’ve dealt with change ever since we humans started to wander this globe. We have seen over and over again how it works, how we can turn it into a motivating, inspiring and successful experience instead of feeling burdened by it. But somehow some persistent myths about leading change are still alive. These myths hinder us instead of helping us. It is time we stop believing them.
