In a workplace infused with top down, hierarchical, departmental silos, change management is the new requirement for leadership success.

John Michel's curator insight, March 24, 2014 6:30 PM

Change management is no longer a term that denotes only operational improvements, cost efficiencies and process reengineering.    Change management has become a much bigger, more interwoven part of the overall business fabric – an embedded leadership requirement that plays into everything that we do, every day, and how we go about getting things done, regardless of hierarchy or rank.   In the end, every leader must be a change agent.

About the Responsive.org Manifesto

The Responsive Organization Manifesto describes the disruptive factors impacting work today and the fundamental shifts organizations are making to take advantage of those changes. This document is not meant to be exhaustive or to convince people who may not already agree. It is only meant to catalyze those who do agree around a common starting point. Many business and thought leaders are already thinking deeply about these shifts. This document is a common framework around which like-minded people can connect and develop the deeper insights necessary to act.
In the spirit of emergence and experimentation, this manifesto is meant to be a living document which will be updated as our understanding of these shifts and how to communicate them improves.

Digital Leadership is a Team Sport - Smarter With Gartner

Digital Leadership is a Team Sport - Smarter With Gartner | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

“Digital business changes customer propositions, business models, industry models, financial models, culture, regulation, talent and more. For that reason, digital cannot be owned and executed as a single departmental function.


An organization’s leadership must evolve to accompany digital transformation, according to Mark Raskino, vice president and Gartner Fellow.”


Via Jaakko Kuosmanen
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Yet, many companies still struggle to bring their top leaders along on the digital journey. It’s tempting to think of digital as distinct and separable into specialist enclaves. All organizations have a deep-seated bias toward perpetuating business as usual and repelling forces that try to change conventional and well-honed best practices.

 

Here’s how C-level roles must play together to win at digital:

 

Chief Executive Officer

 Digital business change can quickly alter the fundamentals of the business, only the CEO can deal with these fondamentals, in conjunction with the board of directors, investors, executive team, customers and other major stakeholders.

 

Chief Financial Officer

 The company’s CFO must adapt the financial model to the new cash flows that digital brings. Only the CFO can make these changes and judge how to time them. 

 

Chief Information Officer

 In the digitalisation team, the CIO have a brand new role compared to tradionnal organizations. More than ever, the CIO must be a business partner and be pro-active to allow the transformation journey. Based on his strong understanding and vision of the (coming) evolution of the Information technology, only the CIO can enable the company to put in place and execute the needed changes to succeed the digitalisation.

The ‘Adaptable Leader’ is the New Holy Grail — Become One, Hire One

The ‘Adaptable Leader’ is the New Holy Grail — Become One, Hire One | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it
Anne Dwane, CBO at Chegg, has had to adapt a lot in her career as she's started and sold companies. Here's what she learned.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

In this exclusive interview, Dwane explains how to adopt the most important learner mindsets — Gamer, Beginner, and Growth.


  1. The Gamer Mindset, popularized by Jane McGonigal, Director of Games and Research at the Institute for the Future, challenges us to apply the courage and willpower — and also optimism and creativity — we have when playing fictional games to real world problems.
     
  2. The Beginner’s Mindset is rooted in openness, being childlike and curious. You don’t have preconceptions about the way things are and are eager to explore new possibilities. It’s about asking “what if” and “why not”, and not being dismissive. It’s popular today to talk about reasoning from first principles versus reasoning from analogy.
     
  3. The Growth Mindset empowers you to take risks by freeing you from associating failure with your self-worth. Carol Dweck of Stanford University pioneered this type of thinking, which posits that brains and talent aren’t fixed, but starting points. Abilities can be developed through dedication, hard work and confronting challenges.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 7, 2015 10:56 PM

Preparing our students with the necessary skills for post-secondary career and college is critical, but especially for our poverty students.  Too often, school is the only venue to provide these thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills. However, many poverty schools under the pressure of standardized testing are stuck in a remediation routine of filling gaps in content, reading, and math.  We must provide time for teachers to collaborate and plan integrated lessons that integrate these higher level thinking skills into their content areas. 

Katie Catania's curator insight, August 5, 2015 2:10 PM

What skills do learners need today to be prepared to be a leader as they move through school and into careers? Google commissioned a study and this post provides a short video that discusses key findings as well as a link to the final report, Driving the Skills Agenda: Preparing Students for the Future.

The Executive Summary provides a number of key findings, including the ones listed below. (The text below is quoted from the report.)

* Problem solving, team working and communication are the skills that are currently most in demand in the workplace.

* Education systems are not providing enough of the skills that students and the workplace need.

* Some students are taking it into their own hands to make up for deficiencies within the education system.

* Technology is changing teaching, but education systems are keeping up with the transformation rather than leading it.

The full report provides additional information, including a number of visuals as well as case studies. As educators it is important that we consider the skills our learners will need in the future, and this report provides insight into some of what will be needed.

By the Numbers: Here's What It Takes to Be a Top Company Culture | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it
From industry type to company age, we reveal the data behind the companies that made our Top Company Cultures list
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

When people think of strong company cultures, many immediately jump to images of slick offices in Silicon Valley, Ping-Pong tables and yoga hour. But these “perks” don’t necessarily equate to a productive culture, one that encourage employees' growth and development, while getting results.

This infographic and the survey behind it push further than the typical images mentionned above.


From my standpoint:
As it is mentionned: "Company culture is a story", a story that develops over time. Once damaged, the scare is part of the history and the culture cannot be fixed, just by appointing a VP or anyone else... Time have to do its duty and a "transformed" company culture will exist overtime.

“ In today’s hyper-connected world, the kind of leaders who climbed the corporate ladder with a “command and control” style of management can have a hard time adjusting to today’s new workplace realities. Businesspeople are working more collaboratively today than ever before – not just with their colleagues, but with suppliers, customers, and other external agencies, too. And because global teams are more dispersed, there’s a reliance on tools and social networks that can put connectivity on steroids.”

Entreprise 3.0 -

Enterprise 3.0 Principles : common traits of new forms of enterprise organization, as seen in multiple new books published in the past ten years, such as Reinv…
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Les six principes généraux de l'entreprise 3.0:

  1. Une vision unique, comprise et partagée par tous, distribué à tous les composants de l’entreprise. Une finalité unique (holacratie) que chacun décline localement en fonction de son contexte et ses moyens, en vertu du principe d’holomorphisme des systèmes complexes.
  2. Cette vision passe par le co-développement avec le client d’une expérience qui lui apporte une véritable satisfaction. C’est bien sur le message central du Lean Startup : dans un environnement complexe, la satisfaction et la véritable innovation se co-construisent de façon itérative, pour faire émerger une solution à un « problème » qui se révèle progressivement, par opposition au monde compliqué pour lequel la spécification du problème est accessible. 
  3. Ce co-développement est assuré par un réseau d’équipes autonomes et cross-fonctionnelles. Ces équipes fonctionnent de façon synchrone, c’est-à-dire une véritable collaboration physique, avec une unité de lieu et de temps. Je me suis expliqué à ce sujet dans le billet sur le travail du futur :  L’entreprise 3.0 repose sur la force des liens forts.
  4. Le « control & command » est remplacé par « recognition & response », la prévision est remplacée par la mesure et la réaction. L’entreprise 3.0 adopte l’approche agile : travailler par petits lots et réajuster constamment ses actions en fonction de l’évolution de l’environnement.
  5. L’entreprise 3.0 s’inscrit dans un écosystème de partenaires, autour d’une vision précise de sa mission pour son client. L’entreprise 3.0 est une plateforme qui sait attirer les contributions venant de l’extérieur : elle fait émerger une forme d’innovation ouverte. Pour ce faire, elle favorise la simplicité et l’excellence : faire peu de choses, mais les faire le mieux possible.
  6. L’entreprise 3.0 est anti-fragile car elle apprend continûment des changements de son environnement. Elle s’organise pour que les équipes apprennent le maximum des problèmes rencontrés, à la fois des opportunités d’enrichir les compétences métiers en continu, mais aussi la compétence fondamentale de collaboration.

Sketch Note: How to Influence Without Authority | Leadership | EQ | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

Leading without relying on authority is a higher evolutionary skill. It supports developing adult relationships based on mutual objectives and creates work environments grounded in respect for human dignity.


Via Gust MEES, Jim Lerman
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

In her post: “How to Influence Without Authority”, Jesse Lyn Stoner offers useful guidance on the what she calls as “8 Portals of Influence”. Whether you lead backed by a formal authority or you lead without a title, these ideas should help you build influence.

 

    1. Character – Your own character is your greatest source of influence.
    2. Expertise – Do you have content knowledge and experience? Are you a thought leader?
    3. Information – Do you have access to valuable information?
    4. Connectedness – Do you form close relationships with people? Do they enjoy working with you? 
    5. Social intelligence – Do you offer insight into interpersonal issues that interfere with work and help facilitate resolution of issues? P
    6. Network – Do you put the right people in touch with each other? 
    7. Collaboration – Do you seek win-win solutions, unify coalitions and build community? 
    8. Funding – Do you have access to financial support?

Acknowledge the reluctance and allow employees to give voice to a feeling of loss.An employee may be the designer of a program that is being replaced. While they understand the need for the change – and may even agree with the recommended change – they may still feel disappointed that a program they worked hard to create is being replaced.

Six CIO Responsibilities for Digital Business - Smarter With Gartner

Six CIO Responsibilities for Digital Business - Smarter With Gartner | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

“How clearly defined are your responsibilities for digital business? Are you the a) champion; b) influencer; or c) facilitator of digital strategy — or d) a bit of all three?”


Via Jaakko Kuosmanen
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

“CIOs have an unprecedented opportunity to transform themselves and their departments and become a key voice at the executive table,” explains John MacDorman, research director at Gartner.  “However, many enterprises haven’t defined their expectations regarding digital leadership.”

 

CIOs have a real opportunity to bring value to the enterprise and be a business partner together their business peers. But, as any opportunity, they have to catch it and use it quickly, otherwise it will be done by others and CIOs would have missed this one time in a life opportunity.  

Here are the main responsibilities (listed by John MacDorman) to define their role in digital business strategy:

 

  1. Promote three IT subcultures
  2. Develop a bimodal capability
  3. Renovate the IT core
  4. Uncover and develop talent
  5. Move from IT governance to enterprise digital governance
  6. Champion digital business strategy

Like this "The 21st century leader goes into the world and breaks down walls by bringing communities together in conversations. The language they use matters so they stay away from calling people inside or outside their organization an "audience" or a "stakeholder." They know the only time you have an audience is when you are watching a movie, a show or at a concert. The 21st century is about community and open, two-way conversations. We no longer need to yell at people and broadcast to get their attention. People want to truly be engaged in conversation and listened to. The new breed of leaders respect people and allow for communities to form where they no longer need to be at the head."

(From the article): Ignoring the warning signs of burnout.


At some point in your leadership, if you really are leading through the deep waters of change, relational differences, or simply the stress of wearing the leader hat, you’ll face burnout. When you start to have more negative thoughts than positive thoughts, when the pressure of leadership is unbearable for a long period of time, or when your leadership starts to negatively impact your physical or emotional health or your relationships, it’s time to seek help.

Investing time and effort into thinking together and co-creating plans for the future is a critical move for sustainable organizational effectiveness. Do not short-change this critical investment by falling prey to these common pitfalls.

 

  1. People have differing titers for plans and strategic planning.
  2. Thinking forward is different than thinking backwards.
  3. The words hold us hostage.
  4. It is tempting to over-plan execution, rather than over-executing plans.
  5. People enter strategy planning sessions with no previous thought.

1. Build to the Culture
More important than technical skills and is whether people fit in the culture you want for your team.


2. Strategy and Execution
This ability to execute on a plan is an essential, but often undervalued, part of achieving results in any organization. Great execution can elevate a flawed plan; at the same time, poor operational capabilities can easily sink a great set of ideas.


3. Fill Your Blind Spots

A leader has to  surround himself with people who counterbalanced my shortcomings with unique skillsets.

Diversity in race, culture, gender, educational background, and many other parameters is a matter of good business management.
