Comment former les managers à la complexité du monde

Comment former les managers à la complexité du monde | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

La formation des managers serait la grande oubliée de la réforme de la formation professionnelle.

Anne Landreat's insight:

Déjà en juin 2010, l'Institut de l'entreprise et la Fondation nationale pour l'enseignement de la gestion des entreprises (Fnege) appelaient les écoles de gestion à développer la culture générale, l'interdisciplinarité, l'esprit critique et l'éthique. Mais l'entreprise ne peut attendre que ces diplômés mieux préparés frappent à sa porte. Elle doit imaginer des dispositifs pérennes pour aider ses managers à se remettre en cause face au changement permanent et à adapter l'exercice de leur autorité à un niveau de contraintes sans précédent.

The Dangers of Denial

The Dangers of Denial | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it
How teams can help each other see the truth.

Denial is alive and well in most organizations, which leads to delayed or inappropriate decisions, inaccurate or misleading communications, and a host of other dysfunctional outcomes. But it’s important to remember that it’s a natural human reaction to anxiety-provoking situations, which is why it’s important for teams to help each other see the truth.

Anne Landreat's insight:

Don’t assume that everyone sees the world through the same lens as you. Facts and data are usually open to interpretation, and people have different underlying criteria for how they analyze them. We all emphasize some things and discount others, based on past experiences, personality, and tolerance for discomfort. That’s why the financial analyst saw what she thought was the “writing on the wall” about her division’s future, while others in the group saw a different story.

Get tough subjects out in the open. Because of these different interpretations, find ways to facilitate and encourage dialogue, particularly when complex issues are on the table. While denial can still occur, it is less likely when teams are able to look at the situation from multiple angles, challenge underlying assumptions, and eventually get a better picture of what’s really going on. So while it’s true that great leaders usually don’t get trapped in the denial of hard realities, it’s often because they get a lot of help from their teams.

Design Thinking and Conscious Evolution | Rethinking Complexity

Design Thinking and Conscious Evolution | Rethinking Complexity | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Systems thinking is a holistic form of understanding, analysis, and problem solving. It's also a way to bring balanced, more impactful solutions to our businesses and social challenges. But what about design thinking?

Design thinking involves using design methodologies to address all of our important inquiries. There is an emerging notion of human-centered design brought into our consciouness by IDEO, the design firm in Palo Alto, California. In this form of design, we involve the recepients in the design process focused primarily on their needs. It sounds simple but most conventional design methodologies consider the needs of humans as an input, but not as the purpose of the design and much less involve them in the process.

Can we use design thinking to guide our evolution? Can design thinking help us build our global and sustainable future as a species. Is this type of thinking broad and deep enough that can tackle the biggest challenges that we have as civilization?

Today, Just Be Average

Today, Just Be Average | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it
Your perfectionism is blocking your progress.
Anne Landreat's insight:

Unlike other obsessions and addictions, perfectionism is something a lot of people celebrate, believing it’s an asset. But true perfectionism can actually get in the way of productivity and happiness.

And what if trying to be average could actually accelerate your success?

If you think you are the type of person who takes on hard assignments with ease, you might try to do something really hard: try being average for one day. What you find might surprise you.

The engaged organisation outperforms the disengaged organisation

The engaged organisation outperforms the disengaged organisation | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

I have been looking recently at performance of organisations. How can they perform better economically and culturally. As for me non-linear innovation delivers multiple benefits – and primary is that one designs organisations around humanity, the needs and the context of humanity. Our motivations are based up identity, belonging, a shared narrative with shared symbols of meaning. These speak to us individually but binds us collectively. Money is the lowest motivator for the vast majority of people.

Anne Landreat's insight:

Engaged organisations have 3.9 times the earnings per share growth rate compared to an organisation with lower engagement in the same industry.

In the US organisations that fail to engage their employees costs that country $300 billion a year

The Rise (and Fall) of Mega-Corporations

The Rise (and Fall) of Mega-Corporations | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

It’s hard to imagine a time when huge, global corporations didn’t exist, but that time wasn’t too long ago.

In fact, Richard Adelstein, a professor at Wesleyan University and author of The Rise of Planning in Industrial America, 1864-1914 reminds us in this fantastic HBR podcast that mega-corporations are a relatively new invention.

Anne Landreat's insight:

Which companies will recognize (and adapt to) transformative and disruptive moments, and which ones won’t?

Social Disruption in the enterprise is real, ever present, and growing.

Ouvrir son esprit à l’OpenMind Kfé | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Ce lieu de réunions et d'échange ouvrira ses portes au cœur de la Capitale dans le courant du mois de novembre. Exit les réunions classiques avec OpenMind Kfé ! Situé dans la cour d’un immeuble cossu du VIIIe arrondissement, cet ancien studio photo retrouve une seconde jeunesse, sous la houlette de Xavier Ginoux, fervent adepte du collaboratif, dont il a découvert les préceptes lors de ses voyages chez nos voisins européens.

Anne Landreat's insight:

Un lieu pour faciliter la collaboration et l'intelligence collective, découvert grace à l'IAF et mes collègues d'InPrincipo, et qui devrait vite devenir une ressource précieuse pour les facilitateurs et coachs.

Réunions-promenades: réveillons le(la) péripatéticien(ne) en nous! | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Les kilomètres, ça use peut-être les souliers, mais ça libère la pensée et stimule le cerveau. La sagesse déambulatoire qui, d’Aristote à Nietzsche  a été encouragée par plus d’un penseur, a été démontrée par la science. Il est donc temps de renouer avec le(la) péripatéticien(ne) qui sommeille en nous, et de l’intégrer à notre quotidien professionnel. Par exemple au travers des réunions-promenades.

This Isn't Capitalism -- It's Growthism, and It's Bad for Us

This Isn't Capitalism -- It's Growthism, and It's Bad for Us | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it
We think economic growth is our friend. Here's why it's not.
Anne Landreat's insight:

“growthism" is not just a system or a set of institutions. It’s a mindset; an ideology; a set of cherished beliefs. And one that’s hardened into dogma. A dogma which is palpably failing; but can’t be dislodged—because it’s become an article of faith, the central belief of a cult, whose priests and acolytes threaten mysterious, terrible, divine revenge whenever their authority is questioned.

Growthism says: growth must be achieved at all costs. When growth is achieved; societies are said to be successful; when it is not, they are said to be failing.

It’s Nutty to Think Recognition Does Employees “More Harm Than Good”

It’s Nutty to Think Recognition Does Employees “More Harm Than Good” | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

I am deeply disturbed by an article by Lucy Kellaway in the Financial Times. In it, based on research about sales people flattering customers, Kellaway concludes that public recognition is bad, and therefore, recognition of others should only be given in private. Clearly, this is a flawed use of irrelevant research to underpin conclusions drawn based on personal experience.

Anne Landreat's insight:
Open the floodgates of recognition

Most of us work in deserts of recognition. In these situations, too much emphasis can be placed on the infrequent oasis of the recognition that does occur.

Stop limiting recognition like it’s a scarce resource. Goodwill and appreciation should be free-flowing in any organization.

As can be seen by the current economic crisis and issues regarding global warming, leading organizations in the 21st century is very challenging and requires new approaches.

Leading a sustainable organization involves stretching the organization to re-envision how it uses its resources, not only natural resources, but its workforce and business partnerships.

We Can’t Handle the Truth

We Can’t Handle the Truth | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

I spent the last few days at a National Association of Corporate Directors leadership conference. I was able to attend a rather amazing keynote by Michael Woodford, the former CEO of Olympus, who was forced out for blowing the whistle on $1.7 billion in internal fraud. It’s a fascinating story, where, by the end of the scandal, the entire Olympus Board of Directors was forced to resign (a very rare thing in Japan).

Anne Landreat's insight:

The truth is simply not valued enough in our organizations. Certainly we don’t want people lying, but setting the bar for truth as “not lying” is setting it way too low. We need people to raise issues, even when they make others uncomfortable. We need people to speak truth that enables the system to grow and develop.

Stress relationnel: il fait grossir, déprime et peut tuer

Stress relationnel: il fait grossir, déprime et peut tuer | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it
Dans le documentaire Le stress: portrait d'un tueur diffusé sur France 5, une étude sur des babouins sauvages permet de mieux comprendre le fonctionnement du stress et son impact sur la santé physique.
Anne Landreat's insight:

Très intéressant !

Ce que nous avons à apprendre des babouins.

Le stress finit donc par rendre malades et par tuer, dominés comme dominants. La solution, superbement illustrée par la nouvelle sociabilité des babouins de Sapolsky, est d'apprendre à vivre en harmonie avec soi-même et avec autrui, ou autrement dit de développer un style d'attachement sécure.

Quatre conseils à un jeune responsable innovation

Quatre conseils à un jeune responsable innovation | Open Source Thinking | Scoop.it

Il m’arrive souvent de superviser des travaux de mémoire sur l’innovation ou de rencontrer des innovateurs et, toujours, la question qui revient est: comment rendre mon organisation plus innovante? La plupart du temps, ces organisations sont parfaitement conscientes de la nécessité d’innover. Souvent, elles ont organisé un séminaire en extérieur avec la direction générale, séminaire qui s’est conclu par la définition de plusieurs piliers stratégiques dont l’innovation fait partie. Puis la communication a pris le relais: un film a été produit, qui se termine avec un message du PDG, diverses plaquettes et brochures ont été distribuées, un intranet mis en place et, si l’organisation est vraiment sérieuse sur la question, un responsable innovation a été nommé en fanfare. Et c’est là que les ennuis commencent…

Anne Landreat's insight:

1. Une cellule/entité innovation est une fausse bonne idée

2. Si l’action de la cellule d’innovation doit avoir un impact, cela ne peut se faire que par la modification des systèmes d’évaluation de la performance et d’incitation des acteurs concernés.

3. L'innovation est un processus social

4. Éviter à tout prix de définir un processus officiel d’innovation.
