How A Sense Of Community Can Help Us Achieve Greatness

How A Sense Of Community Can Help Us Achieve Greatness | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the pleasure of being interviewed by various media outlets about my first book, “Leadership Vertigo”. What’s been interesting about this process is how in many of these conversations, there was much interest to discuss the point made in the book about the importance of leaders fostering a sense of community in their organizations.

As long-time readers of my writings on leadership know, this is something that’s been an underlying theme in many of my insights into how we can be a better leader to those we serve – where we ensure that we’re creating an environment where our employees understand the value of their contributions and why we collectively do what we do.

From Competitive Advantage to Collaborative Advantage

From Competitive Advantage to Collaborative Advantage | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
The last 100 years of business wisdom in the West has been dominated by the notion of Competitive Advantage, whereby a company or enterprise develops a product or a set of capabilities that confers some kind of unique advantage versus its competitors, ideally over an extended period of time.  The concept was championed by Michael Porter via his tomes, “Competitive Advantage” and “The Competitive Advantage of Nations”.  Essentially Porter’s theory is Charles Darwin for business people.  Here’s an account of our recent evolution from the agrarian through the industrial to the information age.  It is not clear from this infographic whether intelligence has increased …

How to Brainstorm With Introverts

How to Brainstorm With Introverts | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

If you're one of those people who perks up at the thought of a brainstorming session, it can be hard to empathize with those whose hearts sink as soon as they receive the meeting invite.

In particular, your more reserved employees who don't enjoy jostling for the spotlight are less likely to really want to partake. But not to worry, says editor Laura McClure in her recent TED blog post. You can make few simple modifications to your meetings, hopefully making them less painful for your more introverted team members. When everyone is more comfortable, you get to hear more ideas.

Peloton Formations | LinkedIn

Peloton Formations | LinkedIn | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
There are many metaphors in business. Many rely on nature: swarms of insects, murmurations of starlings, schools of fish, worker ants, termite mounds. As we are focusing on people, though, I wanted to use a human example. One that also suggested the communion between us, technology and machine: the cycling peloton. For me, this is an example of the responsive, adaptive organisation to which many of us aspire. The peloton is united in common purpose. But there are many different objectives within its confines. Some members aim for the overall victory, some for the different jerseys on offer, some for stage wins on specific days, some simply for television exposure and advertising opportunities for their corporate sponsors.

Ask an average person in the street, which is the most powerful professional network in the world and I suggest they will reply with one of the three following answers: McKinsey, LinkedIn or Harvard Business School.

They are each a leading professional network of their type - corporate, social and academic. Yet what is it that makes each of these networks so powerful? And more importantly, can their respective sources of power be used and emulated by other networks? Let's look at each one in turn.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 4, 4:38 AM


The rapid rise in popularity of online social networking has been followed by a slew of services aimed at an academic audience. This project sought to explore network structure in these sites, and to explore trends in network structure by surveying participants about their use of sites and motivations for making connections. Social network analysis revealed that discipline was influential in defining community structure, while academic seniority was linked to the position of nodes within the network. The survey revealed a contradiction between academics use of the sites and their position within the networks the sites foster. Junior academics were found to be more active users of the sites, agreeing to a greater extent with the perceived benefits, yet having fewer connections and occupying a more peripheral position in the network.

donhornsby's curator insight, November 6, 9:00 AM

Visualize what the 80/20 split might look like at your next networking event. If you spend five minutes talking to someone, you’ll want to limit talking about yourself to one minute—and cede the floor to your new connection for the rest of the time.

 

Of course, that doesn’t mean you should spend those four minutes in silence. So before the event, research the latest trends in your industry, companies you might want to work for, and the individuals you hope to meet. Armed with this information, you can start to formulate useful, informed questions that will fill up the lion’s share of your conversations.

5 More Rules to Avoid a Collaboration Hangover

5 More Rules to Avoid a Collaboration Hangover | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Last week I discussed how many organizations are now seeking the benefits of social collaboration, yet Gartner estimates that throughout 2015 about 80% of social business efforts are not expected to achieve the intended benefits. Even more so, many collaboration initiatives leave participants behind with a hangover, generating the opposite effect of what was intended originally. So how can you make sure you don’t suffer from a collaboration hangover? Here the final 5 rules.

Power Must Be Shared for Organizations to Grow |

Power Must Be Shared for Organizations to Grow | | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

It is important for an organization and its top leaders to understand that power needs to flow to lower-level leaders and employees whose tasks; projects and assignments are needed to deal effectively with critical problems. The capacity of a company to strengthen itself comes from the empowerment of its members, which has its origin in the degree to which the organization is willing to share power with its leaders and employees.

In today’s climate, power is not found in controlling events and circumstances within the organization or outside its boundaries. Power is not focused on the personal gain, recognition or advancement of its individual leaders. It is a collective synergy found among all organizational members, a dynamis, or tireless energy that permeates the atmosphere. This is the inevitable result of delegating and including all leaders and employees in all processes that move the organization forward.

Don't fall into the trap of believing that power is a fixed sum!

Building Trust In Government, One Click At A Time

Building Trust In Government, One Click At A Time | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Consistent interaction as well as providing valuable information better serves the needs of the modern constituency in a democratic government. Technology can help a democratic government evolve to serve the citizens in an efficacious and personalized manner. While debates will continue on the role of government, we can find common ground in building an effective and efficient government through innovation and technology where we all feel like the government’s customer.

It simply begins with translating the same tools politicians use so effectively to campaign and applying them to governing.  Why is it that politicians are effective in using technology to win office, yet forget how to use technology to govern?

The Changing Nature of Workplace Learning

The Changing Nature of Workplace Learning | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Recently, I read two posts that to me reflected the changing nature of work -- from divergently different perspectives. One was from the field of architecture and the other was by Harold Jarche on workplace and learning. Given below are excerpts from both. 

From Googleplex's Designer on the Future of Office
Wilkinson proposed building out the entire GLG office to accommodate "activity-based working"--the theory that employees no longer need personal workstations so much as they need many different settings in which to meet, collaborate, or focus, depending on which tasks they're working on. His concept split the office footprint into a handful of smaller "neighborhoods."
The other piece is from The Post-Hierarchical Organization by +Harold Jarche 
Complex problems cannot be solved alone. They require the sharing of tacit knowledge, which cannot easily be put into a manual. In addition, tacit knowledge flows best in trusted networks. This trust also promotes individual autonomy and can become a foundation for organizational  learning, as knowledge is freely shared. Without trust, few people are willing to share their knowledge.

Connected communities are the future of learning - and sustainable advantage for members and community.

Cisco Connected World Technology Report Looks at the Future of Work

Cisco Connected World Technology Report Looks at the Future of Work | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Cisco likes to do research and make some calculated guesses as to what it all means. Their annual update of looking at workers and the future of the workplace, Cisco Connected World Technology (CCWTR), provides interesting insights about the changing nature of work as Gen Y and Gen X become the predominant members of the workforce globally. 

As Cisco notes, “As in previous years, the CCWTR shows the mindset, expectations, and behavior of the world's next generation of workers, this year with added insights into Gen X and Human Resources workers, and how they value their connectivity (over physical needs), view their availability for work communications (24/7) and how these quirks shape enterprise IT and security policy, product development and design, and the ability of businesses to compete.”

Spoiler alert, there are some surprises and some humorous observations worth thinking about.

Take a Look at Yourself in the Leadership Mirror

Take a Look at Yourself in the Leadership Mirror | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
In the increasingly networked 21st century it’s even more important for leaders to have a high level of self-awareness, to clearly understand why they act as they do, and how their behavior affects and is perceived by others. By knowing themselves successful executives are better able to keep a clear vision of where their organisation is heading, have greater success in communicating this vision to others, and are more able to make the decisions that transform this vision into reality.

In the corporate world today, people expect to be persuaded rather than compelled, and leaders need a high level of emotional intelligence to be able to understand and manage their own, and others’ emotional responses if they hope to build culturally, intellectually and functionally diverse (and virtual) teams able to stimulate creativity.
