High Quality Connections, Short, Deeply Fortifying, Dr. Jane Dutton Video

High Quality Connections, Short, Deeply Fortifying, Dr. Jane Dutton Video | Change Leadership Watch | Scoop.it

"People are more instantaneously alive in healthy in High Quality Connections."


Listen here (brief 4 min. video) as Professor Jane Dutton unlocks the importance of high quality connections and four ways how to make them.  


It is NOT the same as developing positive relationships.


Dr. Dutton is a co-founder of the Univ. of Michigan's Ross Business Schools growing domain of expertise called Positive Organizational Scholarship www.bus.umich.edu/Positive

Her past research has explored processes of organizational adaptation, focusing on how strategic issues are interpreted and managed in organizations, as well as issues of organizational identity and change.


Imagine the impact on a culture if this became a people investment value.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Moving attention from negative deviance to positive deviance (as there is MUCH research on failure and what doesn't work) is what brings this resource to a change leadership watch listing instead of change management resources.

From the first time that I've met Jane Dutton, I've been struck by her openness and deep focus on the scholarship of high quality connections and the impacts they have within organizations.  

A chapter on the subject is here:  High Quality Connections

Let me know what you think.  ~  Deb

Collaborate to Thrive: Dr. Dre & Luke Wood, Crowdsourced Lessons in FastCompany 2013

Collaborate to Thrive:  Dr. Dre & Luke Wood, Crowdsourced Lessons in FastCompany 2013 | Change Leadership Watch | Scoop.it

"Fast Company is crowdsourcing learning lessons to jump into 2013.  Dr. Dre and Luke Wood speak up about casting the right community of people quickly - [their] biggest challenge and opportunity."


Their question to leaders?   What did you learn in 2012 that you will carry forth with you into 2013?"


From ONE of their leader, crowd-sourced contributions:  

Excerpts: 


1) "You have to build the village first.  From my first 20 years ...in the music business...you could rely on a diverse portfolio of artists to create the phrenetic and improvisational energy that challenged convention and compelled the company forward.

In the consumer electronics, you have to generate that energy from the people who work at the company every day.


It requires daily focus and attention.  [We] grew from 30 to 170 this year, casting the right community of people quickly became our biggest challenge and opportunity."


2) As Beats continues to grow, we are going to search high and low to find talent that is individually smart and ambitious but collectively awe inspiring.

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

Collaborate or die is true now, more than ever.  Technology smooths the way (YouTube world collaboration music anyone?)  

There's so much more, building on the best of individual strengths to create the extraordinary and to learn through our insides to our outsides  ~  Deb
