Procedures aren’t the Purpose: the end of the pyramidal organization | Enablers Network

Procedures aren’t the Purpose: the end of the pyramidal organization | Enablers Network | Curated by Enablers Network | Scoop.it
Enablers Network's insight:

This very week, the client we were with, came up with an interesting question to his team: "We need to ask ourselves to which societal disruption we will contribute"... Nick van Heck, Oriana Nawezi and I, who were facilitating this strategic dialog, liked very much the way this challenge was framed.

Here is an amazing entrepreneur, based in Africa and his story. Worth having a look... Such people, not on the radar screen and coming out of nowehere could profoundly disrupt our well established businesses.

A la rencontre d’entreprises à contre courant qui font une confiance totale à leurs collaborateurs

A la rencontre d’entreprises à contre courant qui font une confiance totale à leurs collaborateurs | Curated by Enablers Network | Scoop.it

Dans un monde qui ne sait plus très bien où il va, devant les incertitudes qui raccourcissent nos horizons, quand le pragmatisme semble être devenu synonyme de « baisse la tête, avance et tais-toi » ce sujet peut apparaître un rien provocant. Parler d’entreprises libérées, de bonheur pour être performant, d’autonomie, de liberté, de responsabilité ou de pouvoir confié à ceux qui font, c’est effectivement parler de pratiques managériales à contre-courant. Pourtant des entreprises ont initié ce chemin, parfois long et semé d’embûches, d’une libération des énergies permettant d’atteindre des performances avec des salarié-e-s, non seulement engagé-e-s mais heureux-ses !


Via Les Verseurs d'Eau, Pierre Wouters, Christophe CESETTI, NoveTerra, pakratanaporn, Céline Frontera
Enablers Network's insight:

Pour nos lecteurs francophones, un papier intéressant, illustré de quelques exemples, sur l'intérêt majeur de la libération des énergies de tous les collaborateurs d'une entreprise et de la co-création et de l'engagement au sein de celle-ci. 
Pas chose aisée en France notamment, où l'organisation pyramidale et extrêmement normée est monnaie bien trop courante. Pourtant, Enablers et ses clients savent combien les résultats d'une telle démarche d'ouverture sont très généralement spectaculaires en terme d'engagement et donc de performances d'entreprise.

Ces entrepreneurs qui font une confiance totale à leurs collaborateurs.... business models inspirants

SylvieBellard's curator insight, January 18, 2013 5:47 AM

Le passage de la gestion des capacités humaines à la liberation des capacités, necessite de developper un nouveau mode de management et de partager le leadership au sein des organisations. Il reste un peu de chemin à parcourir, et "le secret de l'action s'est de s'y mettre" in petto. YALLA ! 

Céline Frontera's curator insight, May 22, 2013 4:21 PM

"Piloter une entreprise de libération d’une organisation remet profondément en cause le rôle des managers en déplaçant le barycentre du pouvoir et ses nombreux attributs. Les leaders et tout le management doivent réinventer leur rôle, créer de la valeur différemment"

Nature hates void: Communicate, communicate, communicate!!! | Enablers Network | Curated by Enablers Network | Scoop.it
Enablers Network's insight:

A few weeks ago, the President of the International Public Relations Association shared some of his thoughts on political communication (using the obvious example of the moment, the French Government).

 

It seemed to me that the mistakes Mr. Ginisty suggests Mr. Hollande and his team are committing, are mistakes we frequently see in the business world.

 

I recommend you take a look. Worth reflecting...

Enablers Network's insight:

There have been four months since the last time I "blogged" anything to the 850 CEO's, executives or academics who regularly read this page... Do you want the politically correct reason why this happened or do you feel that, as respected readers and friends, I owe you something different, something real, even though it may hurt my ego?

 

See which choice I have made and I bet it won't surprise you

Disruptive technologies: Advances that will transform life, business, and the global economy | McKinsey & Company | Curated by Enablers Network | Scoop.it
Twelve emerging technologies—including the mobile Internet, autonomous vehicles, and advanced genomics—have the potential to truly reshape the world in which we live and work.
Enablers Network's insight:

"The potential benefits of the technologies discussed in the report are tremendous—but so are the challenges of preparing for their impact. If business and government leaders wait until these technologies are exerting their full influence on the economy, it will be too late to capture the benefits or react to the consequences."

The Pope and the Neuroscientists | Enablers Network | Curated by Enablers Network | Scoop.it
Enablers Network's insight:

38 years ago, I wrote to the Pope to communicate my decision to leave the Faith. I am since an Agnostic who respects (sometimes envy?) the true Believers.

 

Do not suspected me therefore of trying to advocate any religion. But I am impressed by the way new Pope Francis is engaging with the public, the medias, believers and non believers. Analyzing it under the findings of some of the world's leading neuroscientists, there are powerful learnings for us all, Business Leaders, to be drawn from Pope Francis' engagement style. Here they are
