Emotional Agility

ixteen thousand—that’s how many words we speak, on average, each day. So imagine how many unspoken ones course through our minds. Most of them are not facts but evaluations and judgments entwined with emotions—some positive and helpful (I’ve worked hard and I can ace this presentation; This issue is worth speaking up about; The new VP seems approachable), others negative and less so (He’s purposely ignoring me; I’m going to make a fool of myself; I’m a fake).

The prevailing wisdom says that difficult thoughts and feelings have no place at the office: Executives, and particularly leaders, should be either stoic or cheerful; they must project confidence and damp down any negativity bubbling up inside them. But that goes against basic biology. All healthy human beings have an inner stream of thoughts and feelings that include criticism, doubt, and fear. That’s just our minds doing the job they were designed to do: trying to anticipate and solve problems and avoid potential pitfalls.

In our people-strategy consulting practice advising companies around the world, we see leaders stumble not because they have undesirable thoughts and feelings—that’s inevitable—but because they get hooked by them, like fish caught on a line. This happens in one of two ways. They buy into the thoughts, treating them like facts (It was the same in my last job...I’ve been a failure my whole career), and avoid situations that evoke them (I’m not going to take on that new challenge). Or, usually at the behest of their supporters, they challenge the existence of the thoughts and try to rationalize them away (I shouldn’t have thoughts like this...I know I’m not a total failure), and perhaps force themselves into similar situations, even when those go against their core values and goals (Take on that new assignment—you’ve got to get over this). In either case, they are paying too much attention to their internal chatter and allowing it to sap important cognitive resources that could be put to better use.

L’échec des méthodes d’innovation

L’échec des méthodes d’innovation | Never too late to be creative | Scoop.it
Méthode : nom féminin (latin methodus, du grec methodos, de hodos, chemin) « Ensemble ordonné de manière logique de principes, de règles, d’étapes, qui constitue un moyen pour parvenir à un résultat » (dictionnaire Larousse).

Cela fait longtemps que j’ai renoncé à lister les méthodes promettant de produire une innovation de façon contrôlée, fiable et à moindre risque. Vous les avez vous aussi croisées à de nombreuses reprises dans votre activité. Qu’elles soient présentées sous forme de livre, de sessions de formation, voire même de logiciels, elles promettent de vous faire franchir pas à pas des étapes prédéfinies qui vont vous livrer l’amour le succès l’innovation. Tout cela sans risque…

Il y a quelque chose de fascinant dans cette promesse pour toute entreprise technologique, qu’elle soit une startup ou un grand groupe. C’est le Graal vendu par correspondance à la Camif, l’élixir de jouvence au rayon frais de Casino, ou la pierre philosophale en libre service chez Darty.

A ce stade ceux qui me connaissent un tant soit peu, savent que je répète régulièrement que non, il n’y a pas de méthode en innovation ! Je ne crois pas une seule seconde que l’on puisse transformer l’innovation en processus fiable et contrôlé. Un processus d’innovation ou une méthode d’innovation est une oxymore de magnitude 7.

Mais pour avancer, il faut déjà préciser mon propos : s’il n’y a pas de méthode, il y a bien des outils. Il n’y a pas de chemin unique, de processus clair, mais il y a bon nombre d’instruments, de points de passage possibles. Et savoir quand et comment utiliser ces outils, savoir aussi ne pas les respecter, mais les tordre, les changer, les adapter, les réinventer… va permettre ou non de construire de l’innovation dans l’entreprise.

Même si je pense avoir quelques grammes de crédibilité en terme d’innovation, il m’est indispensable d’invoquer un poids lourd pour conforter mon propos. Dans une interview récente, Tim Cook (Apple) donne son point de vue sans ambages :

La créativité et l’innovation sont des choses que vous ne pouvez pas réduire dans un logigramme. Il y a des choses pour lesquelles cela est possible, et nous le faisons en étant alors très méthodiques. Mais la créativité n’est pas l’une d’entre elles. Beaucoup d’entreprises ont des départements de l’innovation, et c’est toujours un signe que quelque chose ne vas pas quand vous avez un VP Innovation ou autre.

C’est une mauvaise nouvelle pour tout le monde. Nous sommes en train de dire que l’innovation est un processus artisanal, mal ou pas du tout duplicable. Du cas par cas constant. Tout cela nous laisse avec beaucoup de questions. Est-ce raisonnable ? Peut-on vivre avec cette réalité dans l’entreprise ? Pourquoi sommes-nous spontanément en attente d’une méthode magique ? Comment fait-on ? … Et non, n’attendez pas à ce que finalement je vous donne une méthode pour pallier l’absence de méthode !

11 Overlay Maps That Will Change The Way You See The World

11 Overlay Maps That Will Change The Way You See The World | Never too late to be creative | Scoop.it

"All maps face the challenge of making the globe appear to scale in two dimensions. Most, like the traditional Mercator projection, keep either size or shape consistent — not both — which skews our perception of continents and countries one way or the other. 

But when you compare square mileage, a whole new world appears. Inspired by this map of Africa's true size from German graphic designer Kai Krause, we created 11 map overlays to open your eyes to some real geography."
