Let's Stop Confusing Cooperation and Teamwork with Collaboration - Jesse Lyn Stoner

Let's Stop Confusing Cooperation and Teamwork with Collaboration - Jesse Lyn Stoner | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it
Using collaboration, cooperation and teamwork interchangeably dilutes their meaning and diminishes the potential to create real collaborative workplaces.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Collaboration is the bedrock of creative solutions and innovation.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 7, 2014 10:11 AM

It is interesting that we use the words quite interchangeably without thinking about context. Several months ago in preparing a presentation I discovered collaboration always has a negative meaning about selling out. The way we approach collaboration is that someone decides what the goals are and everyone else accepts it.

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.

Five Leadership Traits That Will Make You Invaluable During Digital Transformation

Five Leadership Traits That Will Make You Invaluable During Digital Transformation | Leadership, Strategy & Management | Scoop.it

Every successful business in today’s market is undergoing some degree of digital transformation. With the advancing pace of technology, no business will remain unchanged.

 

Mobile platforms and increased connectivity are quickly altering long-standing business structures and changing roles and responsibilities. Begging the question, are you transforming along with your industry? If not, you risk being left behind.


Via Karl Wabst
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Although there are many traits required to drive digital transformation, the following five traits should establish you as a leader in your organization – positioning yourself and your business as industry frontrunners:

  • Think Mindset, Not Skillset
  • Ignore Your Job Title
  • Use Your Brain
  • Take Initiative
  • Provide Feedback

 

The digital transformation of your business might be intimidating, it’s a fact of modern life. By cultivating a proactive, adaptable mindset, taking initiative, and demonstrating commitment to your organization’s health, you can ensure you aren’t a casualty in your company’s transformation.

Karl Wabst's curator insight, May 21, 9:06 PM

Digital transformation is a misleading term. Do not be misled by the word digital. Hardware and software are often the first thing that comes to mind. It is also wrong.

 

The most important component that needs upgrade is employee wetware. That refers to the soft, squishy bit between each set of ears. The ability to be agile cannot be overstated.

 

Bite your tongue any time you feel the burning desire to say, "No, this is how we do things around here!" Listen! Hear, to understand, not to respond! There is a reason you have two ears and one mouth!

The economic essentials of digital strategy

A supply-and-demand guide to digital disruption.
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Since digital “makes everything new”—returned to the fundamentals of supply, demand, and market dynamics to clarify the sources of digital disruption and the conditions in which it occurs. We need to explore supply and demand across a continuum: the extent to which their underlying elements change. This approach helps reveal the two primary sources of digital transformation and disruption:



  1. The first is the making of new markets, where supply and demand change less.

  2. But in the second, the dynamics of hyperscaling platforms, the shifts are more profound (exhibit).

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 9:32 AM
Groupthink is a product of a lack of trust, but it is also a cultural phenomenon. Perhaps it is so ingrained in the way things are done that it is hard to shake free. Schools abound with groupthink as people focus on managing rather than leading. It will take courageous leaders and followers to step out of those shadows.

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 5:56 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 9:10 AM

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.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Most companies have leaders with the strong operational skills needed to maintain the status quo. But they are facing a critical deficit:

They lack people in positions of power with the know-how, experience, and confidence required to tackle what management scientists call “wicked problems.” Such problems can’t be solved by a single command, they have causes that seem incomprehensible and solutions that seem uncertain, and they often require companies to transform the way they do business. Every enterprise faces these kinds of challenges today.

The old rules no longer apply. Digital technologies have radically transformed the business landscape, yet many organizations have completely ignored this reality.


A new survey of IT decision makers found 96% see digital transformation as important or critical, yet 55% say they have one year or less to respond before they financially suffer.


By failing to prepare for new technologies, devices and systems, organizations have threatened their own survival.


Now, it’s time to face this new dynamic and begin planning for a more integrated, technical future.

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?

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

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.

(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.

  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.
