Over-Control and Open Space

In the case of Open Space Technology, the facilitator must not be confused with the process, as the do-er of it. The facilitator is the minimal agent or even channel for self-organisation to “escape” into the world.

 

Good advice on an excellent large group methodology.

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: 8 Ways to Foster Passion-based Learning

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: 8 Ways to Foster Passion-based Learning | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

A study in 1985 “On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein” found that Einstein’s brain was actually not significantly different from others. As an Organization Development blogger put it:

 

                     ===> what made Einstein different was his mind. <===


His thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius. His brain was the same, but his intellect was markedly different. He was often humble about his intellect, and instead said that learning relied on working hard and imagining the impossible. So what made his learning so different? What can we learn from Einstein?

 

Read more, very interesting, a MUST:

3 Reasons "Balance" Has Become A Dirty Word At Work

3 Reasons "Balance" Has Become A Dirty Word At Work | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Recently, a skeptical senior leader asked me to explain the business case for why organizations need to take a more coordinated, strategic approach to work flexibility.

 

When Millennials say they want “balance,” they don’t mean work less. They mean work differently and more flexibly. There’s a big difference. My experience is that most Millennials are willing to work very hard when required; however, they might want to work from home or come into the office earlier or later then traditional hours. The problem is that outdated language limits their ability to describe accurately what they are trying to achieve.

Great Leadership: Disconnection at the Heart of Corporate Failure

Great Leadership: Disconnection at the Heart of Corporate Failure | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Have you ever watched TV with the volume down and the radio on in the background? Some may describe that as crazy, some call it multi-tasking whilst others may sadly say ‘oh we have that all the time at work, everyone talking at once, no one listening, saying one thing and doing another’, creating confusion, misalignment and disconnection, and even at times manifesting as corruption and unethical practice.

 

Disconnection is at the heart of many corporate failures and can happen on several levels.

Training your employees on Sympathy or Empathy? Apple shows the way to success

Training your employees on Sympathy or Empathy? Apple shows the way to success | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Have you taught your employees about the “Power of Empathy”? Do they make the difference between “empathy” and “sympathy”?
We came recently across the Apple’s Genius Training Manual which puts a lot of emphasis on “empathy”. There is a special program on the course called “The Power of Empathy”. The manual insists employees should approach customer interaction with empathy not sympathy in bold type.


A friend of ours, Michael Hill from complaintsaregreat.com also recently wrote in a newsletter that the key to handling customer complaints is “empathy” not “sympathy”. That prompted us to look at the differences and why people insist so much is empathy, not sympathy.
