What’s a « cross-pollinator »? | Leadership & Management | Scoop.it
JLAndrianarisoa's insight:

Cross-pollinators are an « essential part of the ecosystem of innovation ». They are good students but good teachers as well and have a childlike ability to see patterns others don’t see and they can apply them in new contexts.

Beth Kanter's curator insight, May 19, 2:55 PM

Asking good questions Framework.


The most effective and empowering questions create value in one or more of the following ways:


  1. They create clarity: “Can you explain more about this situation?”
  2. They construct better working relations: Instead of “Did you make your sales goal?” ask, “How have sales been going?”
  3. They help people think analytically and critically: “What are the consequences of going this route?”
  4. They inspire people to reflect and see things in fresh, unpredictable ways: “Why did this work?”
  5. They encourage breakthrough thinking: “Can that be done in any other way?”
  6. They challenge assumptions: “What do you think you will lose if you start sharing responsibility for the implementation process?”
  7. They create ownership of solutions: “Based on your experience, what do you suggest we do here?”


What not to ask 
Marquardt points out that, contrary to the business truism “There are no bad questions,” several types of questions can have a negative effect on subordinates.

Questions focused on why a person did not or cannot succeed force subordinates to take a defensive or reactive stance and strip them of their power. Such questions shut down opportunities for success and do not allow people to clarify misunderstandings or achieve goals. These questions include:

  • Why are you behind schedule?
  • What’s the problem with this project?
  • Who isn’t keeping up?
  • Don’t you know any better than that?

Collaborative, cooperative and hierarchical leadership

Collaborative, cooperative and hierarchical leadership | Leadership & Management | Scoop.it

As to whether collaborative, cooperative, hierarchical, partner or shareholder owned models are superior? I think that’s a red herring. There are exemplary models of both, but that’s a red herring too. What we need to aim for are authentic models of leadership based on both formal and social power. Formal power is granted through hierarchy, social power through community. One is positional, the other consensual. In the Social Age, we operate in both spaces, for work and play.

The Lean System of Motivation - Management Meditations

The Lean System of Motivation - Management Meditations | Leadership & Management | Scoop.it
JLAndrianarisoa's insight:

The Toyota Production System or lean management has been described in many ways. It is the systematic  elimination of waste. It is continuous improvement. It is striving for interruption free processes. It is a passionate focus on serving customers. It is many things. But one aspect of lean that has not been given enough attention, in my opinion, is how lean is an organization wide system of motivation that creates a high performance culture. Too many lean implementations suffer from a focus on problem solving skills, but a failure to attend to the system or culture of motivation. Too many rely on the “they really oughtta wanna” assumption which usually results in disappointment.

The word principalities is interesting in the opening paragraph. School managers are called principals. Originally, their roles were based on the title principal teacher. This ceased as scientific management, bureaucracies, and technocracies took hold. It is easy to make teaching into a technical exercise which is imposed, but great teaching does not happen this way.

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast

Culture Eats Strategy For Breakfast | Leadership & Management | Scoop.it

Culture eats strategy for breakfast, technology for lunch, and products for dinner, and soon thereafter everything else too.Why? Because company culture, a concept pioneered by Edgar Schein, is the operationalizing of an organization’s values. Culture guides employee decisions about both technical business decisions and how they interact with others. Good culture creates an internal coherence in actions taken by a very diverse group of employees.

Tobias Beckwith's curator insight, July 14, 11:27 AM

This seems to be a theme for my day... this is the third place I"ve encountered the idea, and it's not even 9am yet. When we seek to create change in the world, all too often we ignore the most powerful thing working against us - the culture in which we're working. So how can you work with that? Make your change "fit" the culture? Find ways to change the culture itself?

donhornsby's curator insight, May 19, 9:48 AM

(From the article): If speaking with conviction gets people’s attention and earns their confidence, Listening with intention will help us to keep it. This is the kind of listening that demands our total presence. Our intention must be to suspend judgment; to resist the temptation to interrupt; to fight our tendency to build arguments in our heads while someone is talking. It requires us to explore; to question and to rephrase. This kind of listening comes from a conscious decision to truly understand what is being said. It does not require us to agree but it provides the opportunity for meaningful discussion that can lead to breakthrough thinking and effective collaboration.
