Maddie Grant's curator insight, June 25, 2013 2:40 PM

Suppose you want to design the best company on earth to work for. What would it be like? For three years we’ve been investigating this question by asking hundreds of executives in surveys and in seminars all over the world to describe their ideal organization. This mission arose from our research into the relationship between authenticity and effective leadership. Simply put, people will not follow a leader they feel is inauthentic. But the executives we questioned made it clear that to be authentic, they needed to work for an authentic organization.

What did they mean? Many of their answers were highly specific, of course. But underlying the differences of circumstance, industry, and individual ambition we found six common imperatives. Together they describe an organization that operates at its fullest potential by allowing people to do their best work.

We call this “the organization of your dreams.” In a nutshell, it’s a company where individual differences are nurtured; information is not suppressed or spun; the company adds value to employees, rather than merely extracting it from them; the organization stands for something meaningful; the work itself is intrinsically rewarding; and there are no stupid rules.

A cleverly filmed piece which uses drawings to explain the verbal concepts in a simple yet illuminating way. Food for thought for those of us working solo. Clever, provocative and highly shareable.

This is horribly written up and it's a small sample but what I get from it is that they've identified common areas in the brain that respond to music and are hypothesizing that as we all share these areas - it allows us to move together - ...yeah....

Tiny study of 11 people but super interesting results that playing music that is in sync with brain oscillations can facilitate memory retention.  Expect to see a crap load of websites offering "in sync" oscillatory music soon.  #caveatemptor!

It takes great strength to display humility:-)

It is very rare to meet a leader with real humility.  It is often seen as a weakness rather than a strength.

In some ways this study confirms what many of us think about big business.  


Personally, I prefer to work with small businesses that are socially aware enough to really care about their customers.  I use Angie's list quite a bit and do give their customer reviews considerable weight when choosing services.
