Why do we say “Top Management” yet never “Bottom Management”? | Henry Mintzberg

Why do we say “Top Management” yet never “Bottom Management”? | Henry Mintzberg | ELT Leadership and Management | Scoop.it
Andrew Hockley's insight:

" Perceiving oneself perched on top of an organization is the worst way to understand what’s happening inside of it. Say “top” and we picture someone hovering over the place, as if on some sort of cloud, far removed from all those people who make the products and deliver the services."

We need to create human workplaces!

Prof. Hankell's curator insight, February 12, 9:26 AM

 Two of the main barriers to a lasting and effective leadership transformation are compartmentalization – treating ‘the people side’ as separate from strategy and cost control – and command and control mindsets, which often persist after a nominal shift towards empowerment has been made.

Inside the schools that dare to break with traditional teaching ~ The Guardian ~ by Matthew Jenkin

Inside the schools that dare to break with traditional teaching ~ The Guardian ~ by Matthew Jenkin | ELT Leadership and Management | Scoop.it
Digital technology has been one of the most powerful agents of change in how societies around the world work and live in the 21st century – from the way we do business and consume information to shopping, entertainment and socialising. The way we learn must therefore adapt to ensure students are equipped with the skills needed to thrive as adults now and in the future. Thankfully, many schools are rising to that challenge.
