Leadership lessons from Sibos: discernment, connectivity, proximity

Leadership lessons from Sibos: discernment, connectivity, proximity | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Sustainable innovation and entrepreneurial growth come from ecosystems, not mere assets. Ecosystems are environments designed from the bottom-up to foster serendipitous interactions. The ecosystems are nurtured by several key cultural traits: connectivity, diversity of ideas and talents, deep levels of trust, motivations that rise above short-term zero-sum calculation and cultural norms that encourage dreaming, risk-taking, and paying it forward.

Way cool network science.

 

This is a way of modeling and making sense of our world, even if it's not a perfectly accurate way of constructing our social and environmental worlds.  Now, to put these techniques into practice and study, to see if we can govern and manage our world more effectively with this metaphor.

A Day in the Life of the Collaborative Economy

A Day in the Life of the Collaborative Economy | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

Data shows collaboration in the new economy is accelerating. 
People are crowdfunding, making, sharing, collaborating, all kinds of their things in life. Some are getting food on-demand, rather than going to traditional grocery stores or restaurants. The world is speeding up, and people are transacting between each other, or rapid-delivery services. We expect this to continue to accelerate as the funding from VCs dwarfs many markets, adoption rates are doubling, and the media has endless coverage over this collaborative movement. To help make sense of this dizzying environment, we attempted to take a snapshot of this world in motion, to try to find out what a single day comprises of

Use 5 Cs To Create Great Web Analytics

Use 5 Cs To Create Great Web Analytics | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

5 Cs of Great Web Analytics
* Combine.
* Comb.
* Copy.

* Crumble.
* Collaborate.

Combine
Web metrics never act alone so don't review them that way. Look at Traffic & Shares, Traffic & Money or Time On & Bounce. By combining metrics you see interrelationships better.

Comb
Inside of your metrics are secret fractals or patterns so meaningful they almost bite you. When I was a Director of Ecommerce we found the 80/20 rule existed in all data sets across all segments and no matter how small we cut the sample. This means a small % of any metric makes up the majority of the benefit and its your job to find those hidden fractals.

Copy
If a competitor has a great new metric copy it, steal it and improve on it. Share your improvements back out to the world so they too can be improve upon. No such thing as SECRETS anymore.

Crumble
Your website is in a constant ebb and flow. We like to say we build sand castles on the beach and the tide is always coming in. This means you can't get too connected to or in love with anything and that includes numbers and processes. You must exist in a constant state of creative destruction to win online so crumble any cherished notions and beloved processes in order to see what is happening NOW.


Collaborate
The more you share, collaborate and give the more you win online. Your CFO is going to complain about ROI and you should smile, nod and assure him or her you will work on it. The way you work on improving web marketing ROI is TO DO WEB MARKETING. Sounds circular and CATCH-22-like you say? Good you are beginning to get it :). M

The Post-Hierarchical Organization

The Post-Hierarchical Organization | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

The way we manage our organizations is largely ineffective for the complex challenges we face, whether driven by the environment, demographics, economics, or politics. Organizational hierarchies work well when information flows mostly in one direction: down. However complex problems cannot be solved alone.


Via Becky Willmoth
more...
Becky Willmoth's curator insight, October 24, 5:01 AM

Within this article Harold Jarche suggests that although hierarchies are practical to get work done, they should not be the overarching structure of organizations. He brings to the fore two key elements in creating post hierarchical organisations, cultivating distributed networks and developing trust within those networks. Complexity cannot be navigated by following a manual, but requires the sharing of tacit knowledge. Jarche highlights how tacit knowledge flows best in trusted networks as without trust, few people are willing to share their knowledge. Individuals who favour authenticity and seek collaborate across a broad range of networks are well positioned to lead the organisations of the future.

The Un-Tapped Value of Employee Social Capital - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow}

The Un-Tapped Value of Employee Social Capital - Schaefer Marketing Solutions: We Help Businesses {grow} | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
When you have a problem to solve or you begin a new project, what’s your first step? Consult the corporate knowledge base? Not so much. Ask a colleague who you know has knowledge and experience? Much more likely! That benefit of getting the answer from someone in your network is called social capital.

Social capital is not owned by any one individual, it cannot be taken away; it is inherent in the network connections among individuals. The bigger your network, the better your access to social capital. In a large company, the only feasible way to be part of a global network is via social communication technologies.

A Guide To Co-Leadership: Why It’s Hard, Why It’s Good, And How To Make It Work | TechCrunch

A Guide To Co-Leadership: Why It’s Hard, Why It’s Good, And How To Make It Work | TechCrunch | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
This post is a brief guide to co-leading. I’ll outline why having co-leaders is hard, why it’s a source of enhanced productivity, creativity, and joy when it works, and some tactics for success. 

I’m going to use the term co-leading throughout. I’m focused primarily on co-CEO relationships, but I think what I write applies equally to co-founders and other collaborative executive structures.

I’m writing primarily from my experience co-founding and subsequently co-CEO’ing HowAboutWe with Brian Schechter, my best friend since childhood. Over about five years, we grew the company to 100 people, and then — this past summer — sold it to IAC. We’re still best friends.
David Hain's insight:

donhornsby's curator insight, October 20, 7:52 AM

(From the article): Know your own weaknesses. If you are incapable of seeing your weaknesses — and particularly the things you do that are hard for your co-leaders, even if they aren’t categorically counterproductive — then you will end up in a prideful, defensive, unhelpful stance. If you see your weaknesses then you will be able to build a balanced view of the relationship dynamics that will support rapid de-escalation and effective collaboration. Your vulnerability will be fuel. Any time you spend being defensive is time wasted.

Correspondence and conversation

Correspondence and conversation | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

This has been a revelatory and repetitive experience for me over the past twelve months. Last October I made a conscious decision to blog publicly and be more active on social platforms like Twitter. Some of the connections made online since then, and amplified through face-to-face time spent over coffee or food, have resulted in strong friendships that are both cherished and highly valued. In people like Anne Marie McEwan and Jon Husband, for example, I have found individuals who influence and challenge my thinking, and with whom I interact several times a week. With Kenneth Mikkelsen, I have formed a friendship and a writing partnership, shaped by a relationship with someone with whom I have a number of overlapping and interacting interests. The list goes on and on. People like Julian Stodd, Doug Shaw, John Wenger, Anne McCrossan and Luis Suarez have given me the courage to take the next step and try the freelance life again. To put my convictions into practice.

Innovation Excellence | Midnight Lunch – Dishing on Collaboration

Innovation Excellence | Midnight Lunch – Dishing on Collaboration | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it
Because we frequently confuse ‘team effort’ with real collaboration, our innovation failures often lie in the human side of systems charged with bringing new products and services to life.  In fact, during his first stint as CEO of Procter & Gamble, A. G. Lafley stated that most innovation failures are actually social. They lie in breakdowns of communication. They sit wedged in silos, separating the expertise of one functional area from another. These social failures impact not only the roots of innovation within an organization, but its execution as well.
David Hain's insight:

For effective innovation, focus on team learning and collective intelligence rather than process.
