I don't see much evidence in education that small groups are disrupting the status quo. It is more entrenched than ever.

Great traits:

- Focus on authentic leadership and eschew passive aggressiveness

- Relentlessly pursue transparent decision making

- View resources as instruments of action, not as possessions

- Codify the relationship between decision rights, accountability and rewards

5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination

5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

By Jonathan Kastner

 

"...Starting a project can seem overwhelming – and we delay for so long that it makes the job less fun and less rewarding. This can be called many things (blowing it off, messing around, taking a nap, puttering), but at its core, we're talking about procrastination....

 

"But fear not. By identifying and confronting some common dysfunctional thoughts that perpetuate procrastination, we can change the way we respond. The following suggestions are adapted from Dr. David Burns’ The Feeling Good Handbook."

Social business and the changing theory of management

Social business and the changing theory of management | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

As organizations want to be more creative and social, the focus of management theory should shift towards understanding participative, self-organizing responsibility and equality of peers. It is a much larger systemic change than just kicking out the bad managers and inviting new, better managers in. It is not about hierarchies vs. networks, but about how all people want to be present and how all people want to communicate in a way that was earlier reserved only to the people we called managers.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, April 21, 2013 7:31 AM

Thought provoking read.  I find a similar issue working as a communication consultant, I usually find people feel the organization needs to communicate better but when it comes time to apply tools that will help communication, many people resist using them.  These barriers are true for communication as well as collaboration.  

 

 From the article:

 

Collaboration Barrier #1 – Hoarders

Collaboration Barrier #2 – Hidden knowledge

Collaboration Barrier #3 – Not invented here syndrome

Collaboration Barrier #4 – Transferring hard to encode information

donhornsby's curator insight, April 21, 2013 8:00 AM

(From the article): Collaboration Barrier #3 – Not invented here syndrome


Siloes are a common feature of many workplaces. They could exist around functions or regions or even hierachies. It’s also increasingly common that these siloes are given a large degree of autonomy as to how they operate. Whether these barriers are physical or merely mental they are often extremely damaging to collaboration. For instance, do your senior managers accept ideas from those beneath them in the hierachy or is there a culture whereby only those on the same level can collaborate? Is there a culture where asking others for help is seen as an admission of failure or ignorance?

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, April 4, 2013 7:00 PM

Excellent Slideshare Presentation on establishing thougth-leadeship in your niche.


Should be required reading if you're a consultant, coach, speaker, facilitator, moderator, or trusted advisor.


If you look at all the digital, on-line, and social media marketing you're currently doing - do you fit within the definition of a thought leader - or are just jamming useless posts and content down the throats of your target market - angering them in the process by jamming up their news feeds or status updates?


Re-calibrate what you're doing to share content (blog posts, curated content, links, slidedecks, video, podcasts, articles, white papers, ebooks) with your network of customers, prospects, and referral sources.


Are you defining the debate? Are you framing the issues that your clients care most about? Are you crushing your competition with your expertise and knowledge?
