Is ‘holacracy’ the future for HR management? Exclusive interview with Zappos

Is ‘holacracy’ the future for HR management? Exclusive interview with Zappos | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it
“HR isn’t just about holding people to rules, it’s a lot more than that. It’s about making sure your people are represented in the company’s decisions and live up to their potential. It’s about being part of something bigger and providing a great place to work rather than simply protecting the business.”

Forget the Vision, Make the Connections

Forget the Vision, Make the Connections | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it

New leaders don’t spend nearly enough time and effort being intentional about how they show up and how they spend their own time. The effort they devote to forming meaningful connections with the people in the organization is almost an afterthought.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 27, 9:51 AM

(From the article): How can you be more intentional? Hall frames intentionality in her own work in eight words that guide each of her interactions: “I want it to matter that we met.” And it should matter for both her and the person she is meeting. There is an implied flexibility in the time horizon; it may matter immediately or several years down the road. Challenge yourself: “I want it to matter that I hold this position,” or “I want it to matter that I am your boss.” How does this affect how you will show up to deliver short-term results and create long-term impact?

The 5 Types Of Organizational Structures: Part 2, 'Flatter' Organizations

The 5 Types Of Organizational Structures: Part 2, 'Flatter' Organizations | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it
Unlike the traditional hierarchy which typically sees one way communication and everyone at the top with all the information and power; a “flatter” structure seeks to open up the lines of communication and collaboration while removing layers within the organization. As you can see there are fewer layers and that arrows point both ways. Obviously an very simplified way to look at this type of a company but hopefully it gets the point across. For larger organizations this is the most practical, scalable, and logical approach to deploy across an entire company. This is the model that most large (and many mid-size) organizations around the world are moving towards.

It’s true, some form of hierarchy still does exist within this model but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing in this case. In flatter companies there is still a strong focus on communication and collaboration, improving the employee experience, challenging the status quo around traditional management models, and the like. But instead of completely reinventing the entire company and introducing a radical new structure and approach to work, it achieves similar results in far shorter term and with much less effort and resource allocation.

The Future of Management Is Teal

The Future of Management  Is Teal | Mastering Complexity | Scoop.it
Many people sense that the way organizations are run today has been stretched to its limits. In survey after survey, businesspeople make it clear that in their view, companies are places of dread and drudgery, not passion or purpose. Organizational disillusionment afflicts government agencies, nonprofits, schools, and hospitals just as much. Further, it applies not just to the powerless at the bottom of the hierarchy. Behind a facade of success, many top leaders are tired of the power games and infighting; despite their desperately overloaded schedules, they feel a vague sense of emptiness. All of us yearn for better ways to work together — for more soulful workplaces where our talents are nurtured and our deepest aspirations are honored.

The premise of this article is that humanity is at a threshold; a new form of organization is emerging into public view. Anthropological research suggests that this is a natural next step in a process that began more than 100,000 years ago. There have been, according to this view, at least five distinct organizational paradigms in human history. Could the current organizational disillusionment be a sign that civilization is outgrowing the current model and getting ready for the next?

They're not afraid to believe the unimaginable.They're not afraid to be patient.They're not afraid to say no.They're not afraid to take an unpopular stand.They're not afraid to ask for help.They're not afraid to show genuine emotion.They're not afraid to forgive... and forget.They're not afraid to stay the course.They're not afraid to earn the right to lead.

10. They're not afraid to succeed through others.

11. They're not afraid to say, "I'm sorry."

12. They're not afraid to take undeserved blame.
