Tips for Change Facilitation – Changing Dojo 

Tips for Change Facilitation – Changing Dojo  | Change Champions | Scoop.it
Changeability is one of the most important characteristics for companies in the 21st century. As Peter Senge pointed out "Organisational change combines inner shifts in people’s values, aspirations, and behaviours with outer shifts in processes, strategies, practices, and systems”.
However, most of the time, the people do not know how to foster this ability inside the corporation. They need help. They need some facilitation to overcome the obstacles during the change journey.
A Change Facilitator is someone who helps the organisation to identify the opportunities to improve and foster collective strategies to maximise the success of the change efforts.
After several years facilitating organisations in small and large change initiatives, I have collected a set of brief lessons to help Change Facilitators in order to maximise the chances of success in a change/transformation initiative.

What I learned from 100 days of rejection

What I learned from 100 days of rejection | Change Champions | Scoop.it
Jia Jiang adventures boldly into a territory so many of us fear: rejection. By seeking out rejection for 100 days -- from asking a stranger to borrow $100 to requesting a "burger refill" at a restaurant -- Jiang desensitized himself to the pain and shame that rejection often brings and, in the process, discovered that simply asking for what you want can open up possibilities where you expect to find dead ends.

All the Best Leaders Practice Emptiness – The Ready – Medium | Change Champions | Scoop.it
“Empty before you begin” is a Zen mantra that reminds us to set the conditions for the vessel.
Ian Berry's insight:
Many great insights here. "... to empty we have to give up. We have to unpack, let go, and dispose of what we no longer need, isn’t serving us, and is creating drag on our ability to evolve. When we build muscle around doing emptiness well, we learn to succumb to rather than resist the repeating loop of loss that is a part of the journey — in service of gaining."

Korn Ferry Futurestep Makes 2017 Talent Trend Predictions 

Korn Ferry Futurestep Makes 2017 Talent Trend Predictions  | Change Champions | Scoop.it
The Futurestep division of Korn Ferry (NYSE:KFY), the preeminent global people and organizational advisory firm, today has shared its 2017 predictions for talent acquisition. Based on insights from recruitment experts from around the world, the list reflects trends that have emerged during the past 12 months as well as those predicted to dominate during the coming year.
According to Futurestep CEO Byrne Mulrooney, there is a common theme that ties together the trends, and that’s the ubiquitous presence of technology in the talent world.
This has forever changed the way talent acquisition experts do their jobs, and what candidates have come to expect.“It doesn’t matter what industry our clients are in – everything from manufacturing to professional services and retail – every company can now be classified as a technology company,” said Mulrooney. “This has forever changed the way talent acquisition experts do their jobs, and what candidates have come to expect.”

The most interesting part for me: 

73 % of respondents said their No. 1 driver at work was doing a job that had meaning and purpose versus 3% who said pay was the top driver. 

"The pay check is no longer king when it comes to sourcing, retaining and motivating talent. Today’s employees – irrespective of their generation – want to work for companies they believe in, from both a vision and development perspective. Company culture, ability to grow and upskill and location of work are all key motivators above salary for candidates choosing their next employer."

Five Ways To Make Strategic Plans Succeed

Five Ways To Make Strategic Plans Succeed | Change Champions | Scoop.it
Each year, business leaders complain about how strategic planning is ineffective or useless. A growing number of articles point to this problem. Strategists have become the whipping boys of the corporate executive suite. Despite the hours strategy teams spend on rigorous analysis, scenario modeling, market research and countless plan drafts which point out specific problem areas or new growth opportunities, when it comes time to state the strategy, business leaders cop out. They end up softening the edges. They resist being specific. They compromise because they don’t want to offend anyone or leave any group out.  They don’t want to risk placing a bet and being wrong, so they bet on everything.

The result is a lowest common denominator strategic plan which sounds pleasing to everyone, but serves no one. Companies need to break the cycle. Here are five practical and actionable things business leaders can do right now to make their next strategic plan better.

Ian Berry's insight:
There's some good common sense here however the wise gather the information, determine insights then describe their strategy in a sentence. The hard work is then ensuring every employee has their unique piece of the execution map. Strategic planning is actually a oxymoron

David Hain's curator insight, December 2, 2016 4:13 AM
