Company Culture: How to Keep Your Entrepreneurial Edge as You Grow

Company Culture: How to Keep Your Entrepreneurial Edge as You Grow | Leadership - Social & Native | Scoop.it
Leaders can shape-shift their company's culture as challenges arise.

Via Don Dea
Tom Hood's insight:

Love the quote, "Leaders can shape-shift their company's culture as challenges arise." That may require more changes considering the rapid pace of change and complexity we are all dealing with.

 

There is a saying that culture trumps strategy every time and another that shows the ROI of culture investment to be 20X (acccording to the book Information Masters). Yet we see many oprganization who have "culture by default" - culture that is different based on the leaders and managers, offices or divisions. In today's hyper-competitive world we need every advantage we can get and cannot leave culture unaddressed. How are you dealing with your culture?

more...
Don Dea's curator insight, September 19, 2013 8:47 PM

A company’s culture is like water: It’s an ecosystem that supports the life forms that occupy it. It adapts to those forms over time, and eventually turns into a mutually supportive environment. But unlike nature, a company’s culture has consciousness and control: The people who occupy it are aware of their environment every minute of every day, and the people who lead it have the power to influence and to change it.

The problems and challenges related to culture simply never go away. Leaders can, however, tackle the shape and context of those challenges.

Creating a Company Vision Story

Do you have a vision of where your company will be in three years? In five? 10? Here’s a sure-fire way to get clear about the future you want.

Tom Hood's insight:

The power of vision is so compelling and absolutely necessary in today's ADD world. Captured well here in the article, "A great vision is inspiring. It gets you and everyone in the organization excited to come to work; it's the cathedral everyone is coming to work every day to construct. This is not mere wishful thinking. A vision must also be strategically sound. You have to have a reasonable shot at getting there."

Employee Engagement Does More than Boost Productivity

Employee Engagement Does More than Boost Productivity | Leadership - Social & Native | Scoop.it
Why do so many organizations get engagement wrong?
Tom Hood's insight:

It really is that simple - Start with Why "One way to simplify it is to focus on purpose. Communicate the purpose of the organization, and how employees' individual purposes fit into that purpose." and end with the four most important words in business, "what do you think" (Thanks Tom Peters). Apply MBSN (Management by Sticky Notes) to increase the impact. At BLI we call this ROP - Return on People.

In a complex business environment, innovative companies must move from a guru model to one based on team leadership.

I think the CEO is moving from Chief Executive Officer to Chief Engagement Officer and will act more like CEOs of non-profits who are leading networks rather than managing organizations.

We could be. Don't tell bureaurcrats in education this. They are afraid because their jobs would evaporate.

Richard Dillard, PMP, SSBB, ABD 7.1's curator insight, June 22, 2013 10:42 AM

"Never let yourself be pursuaded that any one Great Man, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of America. When America consists of one leader and 158 million followers, it will no longer be America."  Credited to Dwight D. Eisenhower in a September 3, 1976 edition of the National Courier, we could well adjust the quote to the context of this article thus:

 

Never let yourself be pursuaded that any one Great Man or Woman, any one leader, is necessary to the salvation of business in America. When Corporations consist of one leader and the rest followers, they will no longer be effective.

 

Borrowing from Marshall and Manuel in "The Light and the Glory", it is the most dangerous kind of corporate self-delusion to think that a CEO, regardless of how capable he or she is, can single-handedly reverse the bent of the organization's defensive culture and increase effectiveness. And when it becomes apparent that the CEO cannot, he or she will become the next in a long line of scapegoats. 

 

In stark contrast to this "one great leader" concept stands the Leadership-Culture-Performance connection.  REAL LEADERS understand and exploit this connection through the impact they have on those who choose to follow their lead.  By modeling visionary behaviors that are congruent with visionary messages and employing prescriptive rather than restrictive leadership strategies, their impact is one that produces greatness in, with and through others.  The result is an entire corporation of leaders who, through constructive relationships, exchange information vital to their individual and collective success.  Only then can their approach to one another in the process of working together create the culture whereby their vision can emerge, their effectiveness can increase and their performance improve.  

 

Indeed!  Companies intent on surviving and thriving will need to move into the Post-CEO World.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 22, 2013 5:02 PM

Las opiniones, las ideas ingeniosas, y la experiencia de un simple líder no son suficientes para conducir exitosamente una organización en los tiempos actuales.   Una encuesta realizada por IBM el 2011 a 3,000 CIOs concluyó que tanto CEOs como CIOs están hoy más alineados que nunca a la estrategia de la organización. El paradigma del CEO exitoso, capaz de transformar la organización y cambiar el mundo, al estilo de Steve Jobs, está dejando paso a un paradigma de liderazgo en equipo.

Social CEOs Drive Company Visibility

CEOs have made a significant push to raise their profiles on the web, appearing on more corporate websites and videos, and even getting involved on social networks.

Via Don Dea
Tom Hood's insight:

I liked the risk of not doing social in the article, "On the flip side, almost half of respondents said CEOs who did not engage on social channels risked becoming out of touch with their customers—an indication that, over time, not engaging on social media will be considered a liability more than a choice."

 

The Deloitte / MIT Sloan survey said the tthe tipping point for social media in business (incuding CEOs) will hit in three years. And the yarticulated the benefits beyond marketing, like innoavtion, learning, communication, and collaboration.

 

Are you a social CEO?

more...
Don Dea's curator insight, February 10, 2013 1:04 AM

As social media tears down the walls between brands and consumers—and puts a premium on visibility and engagement—companies are finding that getting their CEOs out in front of online channels is becoming a more essential part of a brand’s business strategy.

When public relations firm Weber Shandwick looked at the online activity of CEOs from 50 of the world’s largest companies in 2010, only 36% were considered “social”—meaning they engaged on a company website, appeared in a video on the company YouTube channel or had a public and verifiable social network profile or blog. In 2012, when Weber Shandwick studied the same brands, nearly double that percentage were deemed a “social CEO,” at 66%.


Tom Hood's comment, February 10, 2013 4:50 AM
Don, great insights and article. I have been seeing a lot of these articles lately. I can say firsthand that getting "social" was the single best thing I did as CEO. It has helped connect to members and prospective members, build our MACPA & BLI brands into a nationally recognized brands, and helped communicate internally and externally. It is also my PKN (Personal Knowledge Network which allows me to stay ahead of the trends and up on the latest business "hacks". Most importantly, it helps you (and your organization break through the clutter in what I call ROA - Return on Attention, probably the biggest benefit of all.

The Secrets Of Generation Flux

The Secrets Of Generation Flux | Leadership - Social & Native | Scoop.it
If Wes Anderson ever conjures up a hipster mad scientist, he'll look a lot like Aaron Levie, the cofounder and CEO of an Internet company called Box. Levie's a mess of jangly nerves, topped by a wild mop of hair that he frets as he talks.
Tom Hood's insight:

"YOU HAVE TO BUILD AN ORGANIZATION THAT IS CAPABLE OF ACTING LIKE A STARTUP BUT CAN OPERATE AT LARGE SCALE SIMULTANEOUSLY."


Business today is nothing if not as paradoxical. We require efficiency and openness, thrift and mind-blowing ambition, nimbleness and a workplace that fosters creativity. Organizational systems based on the Newtonian model are not equipped for these dualities.

 

Generation Flux leaders are the ones who will steer their companies, and modern business, toward more sophisticated models. In today's chaos, leadership is more critical than ever--but a different kind of leadership.


I think this article captures the leadership challenge very well. The reality is we are in new territory. What got us here won't (most likely) get us there (with homage to friend and author Emmanuel Gobillot). Leadership is about engaging people to rally around a compelling "Why", inspired by a shared Vision (that they have weighed in on), taking risks and using creativity to sense and respond to emerging needs in te market, and then shifting, pivoting, or tacking your way to the Vision as you go. 


It is like changing an airplace engibe in mid-flight or building a bridge as you drive over it in the fog. It is about embracing the ambiguity.


It is much more about connect and collabroate than command and control, more of a network than a hierarchy, more human than mechanistic.

Combining Purpose With Profits | MIT Sloan Management Review

Combining Purpose With Profits  | MIT Sloan Management Review | Leadership - Social & Native | Scoop.it
Several organizing principles can help companies sustain both profitability and a sense of purpose.
Tom Hood's insight:

A well researched article on the power of purpose and link to profitability. In today's topsy-turvy world, people want to work for an organization with an inspiring purpose - yes it gets to that "vision thing" and MIT/Sloan digs into that concept in this article.


"Purpose, according to Ratan Tata, the recently retired CEO of the Tata Group, is “a spiritual and moral call to action; it is what a person or company stands for.”1 When such a purpose exists, it provides employees with a clear sense of direction, helps them prioritize and inspires them to go the extra mile — which, the argument goes, should ultimately be good for profit."



In a famous article in Time magazine, Robert Ajemian reported George H.W. Bush’s exasperated reaction to friendly suggestions that he invest time in carefully thinking about his prospective presidency: “Oh, the vision thing.”


The purpose of this article is to help you to understand why and how a corporate purpose matters and to show how it can be realized without sacrificing profitability — and indeed may result in higher profitability.


They introduce the research from goal-framing theory and a concept of pro-social goals. "Goal-framing theory shows that a company’s goals make a difference only when they work on the beliefs of employees, and that the most valuable goals are those that support collaborative work." Once again we see the power of collaboration in the co-creation of these goals that serve to set the "pro-social" firm-wide goals that sit above everything else like a guiding light.


The article goes on to emphasize that these goals must be kept in the forefront, lest they be driven out by individual and departmental goals.

 

"However, these goals compete with other goals for individual mind share and are easily driven out by gain and hedonic goals. As a result, corporate executives have to work doubly hard to affirm pro-social goals and to develop systems and structures that reinforce them. And, most fundamentally, establishing pro-social goals requires developing a tolerance for obliquity — that is, the paradoxical notion that if we follow pro-social goals we aren’t actually getting rid of gain goals. Instead, we are realizing them more effectively."

More urgent than ever. I have been noticing a change in CPAs in all walks of life (small practice, large firms, mid-market CFOs, public company finance/accounting teams) talking about the need for leadership at all levels. It goes way beyond the obvious need for succession planning. It seems to be driven by the accelerating change and complexity and need for people who can anticipate what's coming around the bend and help mobilize the organization to make the turns and adjust the sails as necessary.

Innovation Excellence | Deloitte Survey: How Millennials See Innovation | Leadership - Social & Native | Scoop.it
Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) have provided a set of interesting results from a survey of the world’s future leaders and what they think about innovation, which was released for the World Economic Forum, held in January 2013.
Tom Hood's insight:

Generational Issues are the #1 issues affecting the CPA Profession and Business in general, according to the research done by the AICPA and the CPA Horizons 2025 Report. This report puts it in the context of innovation but I think it is much broader and deeper (it is also by one of the Big Four Accounting firms).

 

This summary and quote capture it well,

 

The critical message – can we wait or shift leaders aside who don’t get it?

 

“A generational shift is taking place in business as baby boomers, many of whom may have been wedded to the ‘old way’ of doing business, begin to step down from their leadership roles to retire,” said Salzberg. “Real opportunity exists for organizations to step up and create the conditions and commitment needed to encourage and foster innovation in their work environments. And there’s a tremendous upside if we get this right: we can better retain talent, remain more competitive into the future, and more positively impact society.”

Don Dea's curator insight, February 10, 2013 1:06 AM

Wonderful managers keep their people focused on the world outside the organization. Their people have a deep, daily understanding of customers and their needs.
Clueless managers keep their people focused internally. Their people direct their attention upward, having a deep daily understanding of the bosses and their needs. These employees are also looking laterally at one another, measuring their individual competence by contrasting themselves with their peers. Employees of the clueless pay a lot of attention to their immediate superiors. (That word itself says a lot about the expected relationship. An employee, introducing his manager to a visitor was asked by the visitor "Is this your superior?" "No", he replied "this is my boss!".)
One way managers encourage "internal focus" is by encouraging employees to compete with one another for rewards, recognition, ratings and rankings.
