Seven Signs Your Manager Wants You Out

Seven Signs Your Manager Wants You Out | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
When you're working for someone who is threatened by your ideas, you'll know it. Your boss will send you signals that your energy, intellect and creativity aren't welcome.First, the signals will be small. Your boss is trying to tamp down your growing flame before it gets any bigger.If you don't get the message "Pipe down and do what I tell you - and nothing else!" the messages will get louder. You may have been the department's star employee, but now you're persona non grata.If your bo

How to run a company with (almost) no rules

How to run a company with (almost) no rules | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
What if your job didn’t control your life? Brazilian CEO Ricardo Semler practices a radical form of corporate democracy, rethinking everything from board meetings to how workers report their vacation days (they don’t have to). It’s a vision that rewards the wisdom of workers, promotes work-life balance — and leads to some deep insight on what work, and life, is really all about. Bonus question: What if schools were like this too?

Gisele HELOU's curator insight, February 25, 1:07 PM

I always come back to variations of the question that my son asked me when he was three. We were sitting in a jacuzzi, and he said, "Dad, why do we exist?" There is no other question. Nobody has any other question. We have variations of this one question, from three onwards. So when you spend time in a company, in a bureaucracy, in an organization and you're saying, boy -- how many people do you know who on their death beds said, boy, I wish I had spent more time at the office? So there's a whole thing of having the courage now -- not in a week, not in two months, not when you find out you have something -- to say, no, what am I doing this for? Stop everything. Let me do something else. And it will be okay, it will be much better than what you're doing, if you're stuck in a process.

The Crossroads of Should and Must

The Crossroads of Should and Must | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
Should is how others want us to show up in the world — how we’re supposed to think, what we ought to say, what we should or shouldn’t do. It’s the vast array of expectations that others layer upon us. When we choose Should the journey is smooth, the risk is small.

Must is different—there aren’t options and we don’t have a choice.

Must is who we are, what we believe, and what we do when we are alone with our truest, most authentic self. It’s our instincts, our cravings and longings, the things and places and ideas we burn for, the intuition that swells up from somewhere deep inside of us. Must is what happens when we stop conforming to other people’s ideals and start connecting to our own. Because when we choose Must, we are no longer looking for inspiration out there. Instead, we are listening to our calling from within, from some luminous, mysterious place.

Machine Cognition, Ethics and Redefintion of Work

Machine Cognition, Ethics and Redefintion of Work | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
There is ample room for redefining “work” as productive activity that is meaningful to one’s sense of identity and self-worth for fulfillment, self-actualization, social-belonging, status-garnering, mate-seeking, cooperation, collaboration, and meeting other needs. The “end of work” might just mean the “end of obligated work.”

Want Innovation in the Workplace? Cultivate Compassion

Want Innovation in the Workplace? Cultivate Compassion | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” ―Aesop Innovation and company culture. The words are common parlance in business today, and the two are often found together. Google, for example is an organization motivated by innovation, and its commitment to innovation is cultural, not process driven. But how can an enterprise and its leaders nurture innovation? In the 15th century, the word “culture” pertained to agriculture, as in “cultivating” the land. Over time, the definition m

Jony’s Patience — Medium

Jony’s Patience — Medium | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
But it’s your job to help. Your role in a company isn’t to just be the designer of products; Your role is to be a designer of that company, to help it become the company that has the ability to make the products you aspire to make. When you joined your company, you probably didn’t think you signed up to help build the company too, but you did. By helping to make your company a better place to work, you make it a better place to design and build things. If you believe that design is critical to the success of the company you’re working for, then you need to prove it everyday. Don’t just think about that one product you need to design in the next 3, 6, or 12 months. Consider the skills, relationships, and tools that you and your company will need for the next 2, 5, 7, or 10 years and start working on them now. Don’t just measure yourself by the output of your very next project; Measure yourself by how you’re improving quality over the course of your next 10 projects. Measure yourself by the quality of the projects of your peers. When you see problems, go tackle them, even if nobody told you to. Put it on yourself to make it better, so that your current and future colleagues won’t have to deal with that same problem. Your job is to be the shoulders that the next generation of designers — and perhaps your future self — at your company will stand on.

Understanding the Culture of No

Understanding the Culture of No | Corporate Rebels United | Scoop.it
The following is a transcript of a Keynote address by DOBT Founder Clay Johnson to local, state, and federal officials of Mexico on February 20th, 2015.I think there’s a bit of a false promise in the way we think about innovation in government. The current thinking is: “if we bring in private sector innovators, then they’ll fix the government with their whiz-bang ideas.”

Jason Leong's curator insight, March 16, 5:21 PM

"The Driver isn’t laziness or people being set in their ways. It is risk mitigation. That question, “how do we not fail?”, is antithetical to innovation, and is the thing that empowers the Culture of No.

So what’s the problem with spending some extra money to make sure things don’t fail?

We begin by reducing the number of people and companies qualified to work on the project deemed as low-risk. We then often do risk assessments on our projects, and then we often build a governance structure into building out those projects that inflates the total project cost and timeline in order to again mitigate risk."

Jason Leong's curator insight, February 24, 5:20 AM

"Many traditional management practices assume the business system is complicated and understandable, given enough time to analyze it. This is perhaps the major flaw of industrial management. Most of our difficult organizational problems are actually complex. They cannot be understood except in hindsight. Each time we deal with a complex environment it is different. This means we cannot repeat what we did before and expect the same results. Instead, complex situations require constant small probing actions that are safe to fail."
