The research demonstrates that significant changes are happening – across the world. Not only is business changing, but people are reflecting on the very meaning of work in their lives and how to be a part of vibrant virtual and physical communities that bring joy and high quality of experience to their lives.

The Secret Sauce of Innovation | Innovation Management

The Secret Sauce of Innovation | Innovation Management | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
There’s a saying among venture capital investors that “Entrepreneurs are like tea bags—you never know how strong they are until you put them in hot water.” Companies, and their leaders, are the same. In today’s demanding business climate, there’s plenty of hot water for everyone, in the form of new technologies and new competitors that are providing plenty of challenges for your leadership team. Great companies emerge during bad times Despite the grumbling that accompanies a capital crunch or economic austerity, lean years are actually good for young companies. With people, challenges can build character; with companies, it can bond teams, enhance innovation, and instill operational efficiency. Many of today’s highly respected brands, including General Motors, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Microsoft, and Apple, started during the lean times of recession. GM was founded during the panic of 1907, IBM was founded during the panic of 1910–1911, HP was born during the Great Depression, and both
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Interesting POV. What are your thoughts? I do agree with the idea that using agile processes will provide a better platform for growing innovation. It allows you to fail early and pick yourself up and try again more quickly. Trials are many times the stimulator of innovation but you must be open to trying and failing for it to be effective.

Ron McIntyre's insight:

I really like Gordon's article.  He is absolutely on the mark. The old sink or swim mentality breeds anger, frustration and very low emotional intelligence in my opinion. I totally agree that this is short term thinking and so 20th century.  The Next gen will come from the millennial's and they have a completely different point of view. It will start with generational respect. This will be the key to growing this next batch of leaders.

Board of Directors Resolution – Pay Attention to Culture

Board of Directors Resolution – Pay Attention to Culture | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
21st Century corporate governance is a busy job. Acting on behalf of shareholders, boards of directors are paying attention to an escalating list of risks and rewards from a firm’s undertakings. Like many activities within any organization, “the squeaky wheels get the grease.” Other than in desperate situations such as ‘turnarounds,’ culture seldom ranks as […]
Ron McIntyre's insight:

While I wish I could say that many board of directors are responding well, I believe the opposite is happening.  They are really becoming less visible publicly and more dominant in the background. Some more militant shareholder groups are bragging about how they are going to put their own CEO is place so they can control the activity better.  This is a tough issue that needs attention for sure.
