Moving Beyond Hierarchy - What is Working Now to Lead Through Change?

Moving Beyond Hierarchy - What is Working Now to Lead Through Change? | Inspire to Change | Scoop.it

"Letting people manage themselves actually works."

 

[It] enables people to control their own destinies... [radical decentralization is] aligned with the urgings of our selfish genes. 

From a market perspective, it’s more efficient and effective. 

From a cultural perspective, virtually every organizational innovation since the Western Electric Hawthorne studies has been aimed at fostering democracy and initiative in the workplace because it’s good for both people and the business. 

Moving to an entrepreneurial organization is just the next step. –from -  Charles Jacobs: Management Rewired

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, April 7, 1:04 PM

Harold Jarche's collection of quotes and readings forecasts the evolution or creative destruction of industrial age hierarchies.
     

Take GM, for instance. It has an embedded, decades old cultural hierarchy that struggles to embrace team concepts, plant by plant. It is just now starting to happen. It affects how decisions are made and can result in problem decisions, cascading to bad press, such as the massive recall now happening.
    

Compare that to Zappos, using holacracy, and those using wirearchy as new forms of leadership.  Zappos started with a completely different baseline for how leadership will be distributed. Time will tell how growth will happen in both companies. ~ D

Beyond “Sissy” Resilience: On Becoming Antifragile

Beyond “Sissy” Resilience: On Becoming Antifragile | Inspire to Change | Scoop.it

What’s the opposite of a person or organization that's fragile? If you ask most people this question, they’ll likely say “robust” or “resilient. But philosopher Nassim Nicholas Taleb would say that’s not the right answer.

 

He argues that if fragile items break when exposed to stress, something that’s the opposite of fragile wouldn’t simply not break (thus staying the same) when put under pressure; rather, it should actually get stronger. 

 

We don’t really have a word to describe such a person or organization, so Taleb created one: antifragile.

 

In his book, Antifragile: Things That Gain from Disorder, Taleb convincingly argues that this powerful quality is essential for businesses, governments, and even individuals that wish to thrive in an increasingly complex and volatile world.

Overcoming Challenges of Personal Change

Overcoming Challenges of Personal Change | Inspire to Change | Scoop.it

Leaders have to learn and practice new leadership behaviours to overcome some of the habits that are limiting their current or future effectiveness.


Executives’ efforts to develop new behaviours often perturb the equilibrium situation they had reached with members of their ecosystem, who are often unwilling and/or unable to change their own behaviour in ways that would support the executives’ efforts.


Understanding these four challenges doesn’t make the change easy, but it makes it easier for executives to accept that the change process is demanding and they must hence approach it with courage and persistence. It also helps to identify four pillars that can be extremely useful to executives who want to modify some aspect(s) of their leadership style.

I can recall many times I made lists of resolutions in December only to forget them by February: “Stop biting your fingernails.” “Learn to relax.” “Find a career that you love.“Despite my good intentions, it wasn’t until I made a huge transition—booking a one-way ticket to Costa Rica two Januaries ago—that my life really began to change. But it wasn’t living in the remote jungle that caused me to magically change.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, April 6, 9:27 AM

Taking steps to tame complexity of a system are meaningless without also addressing incentives and culture, since people will inevitably drive a safer car more dangerously. To tackle this, organizations must learn to improve the “cognitive diversity” of their people and teams — getting people to think more broadly and diversely about the systems they inhabit.


Complexity was the theme of the 2013 Global Drucker Forum in Vienna. You can find a series of perspectives here.

Change Leader, Change Thyself

Change Leader, Change Thyself | Inspire to Change | Scoop.it

Leo Tolstoy, the Russian novelist, famously wrote, “Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself.”

 

Tolstoy’s dictum is a useful starting point for any executive engaged in organizational change. After years of collaborating in efforts to advance the practice of leadership and cultural transformation, we’ve become convinced that organizational change is inseparable from individual change. Simply put, change efforts often falter because individuals overlook the need to make fundamental changes in themselves.

 

Building self-understanding and then translating it into an organizational context is easier said than done, and getting started is often the hardest part. We hope this article helps leaders who are ready to try and will intrigue those curious to learn more.

Change Happens In 5 Stages

Change Happens In 5 Stages | Inspire to Change | Scoop.it

When two psychologists, Carlo DiClemente and James O. Prochaska, studied people who were trying to quit smoking, they discovered five stages that can be used to assess a person’s readiness to make change. Their ideas about the stages of change have been applied to people who are creating a variety of changes in their lives, whether they are looking to establish new behavior or extinguish old habits.

 

Their research has become paramount to the Transtheoretical Model of Change. It shows that trying to force someone to change before he’s ready isn’t likely to be productive. For example, most New Year’s resolutions don’t last because people don’t go through the stages of change. Instead, they try to create change based on a date on the calendar, which may not coincide with a true readiness to transform.
