Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 12, 1:47 PM

This is a terrific 4.22 minute video by Beth Comstock at General Electric (GE) explaining how and why they do storytelling. GE does a masterful job at business storytelling and are a great example to follow.


GE has their heads on straight about what makes an effective business story, which Comstock goes over here. Watch this video and take notes on what they are doing. Then do the same for an awesome 2015.

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change

The Iceberg That Sinks Organizational Change | Manufacturing In the USA Today | Scoop.it

Some aspects of organizational culture are visible on the surface, like the tip of an iceberg, while others are implicit and submerged within the organization. Because these ingrained assumptions are tacit and below the surface, they are not easy to see or deal with, although they affect everything the organization does.

Nice pick @Vicki!
Jeremy Pollard's curator insight, January 29, 5:56 PM

Icebergs are a great metaphor. We use an iceberg in Shipley win-work sessions to highlight that deals are often won under the iceberg around unstated issues, then justified on the stated requirements. 

 

Later, when client agree they could make some powerful changes to their process for winning work, this iceberg about the hidden barriers to making that change comes into play.

 

The ratio of people and organisations that want to changes, but struggle to make it stick, is very high. We are fast approaching the point where effective change management becomes a bigger issue to work on with clients than the specifics of the solution being considered.

 

I recommend this article, and the powerful visual as a starting point for you own conversations with your team about making things happen.

 

I suggest starting with examples of projects or changes of significance that HAVE worked for you. Talk through why you think they worked.  Compare them to the projects or changes that stalled or ran late. What was different?

 

Talk to colleagues about their success and failures in change.

 

Leading a team, helping a customer - change is the foundation skill.

Where would you rank your ability to drive, lead and make change happen?
