MIT's Ed Schein on Why Corporate Culture Is No Longer the Relevant Topic and What Is - Forbes | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

" To help leaders deal with multi-cultural teams, which is where it’s going to be at, two things need to happen – leaders have to become much more humble and learn how to seek help, because the subordinates under them will be much more knowledgeable than they, and secondly leaders will have to create cultural islands where people from differently occupational and national cultures can spend suspend some of the rules and talk to each other more directly, for example, about how they view trust, how they view authority, or how they deal with bosses that make mistakes.

If leaders can’t create those kinds of cultural islands, they won’t be able to create teams that can actually work."

joe gerstandt » how to hack your culture | networks | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

Your organizational chart matters. A little.


In a lot of ways it does not. Ideas, information, trust, influence, opportunity and other resources move through networks of relationships without necessarily adhering to what the org chart says. Social network analysis tools now allow us to make the invisible visible so that we can be more deliberate in our approach to networks. There are a couple of big opportunities here:


Good ideas often have social origins. Innovation is fueled by the exchange of ideas and perspectives and identities, and the accompanying creative tension. It is in this exchange that we have the opportunity to recombine and synthesize, generating brand new opportunities. By deliberately and proactively building networks we can create more of those valuable intersections.


Get folks really included. Hiring someone as an employee in your organization does not necessarily mean they are going to be included. Are employees able to get connected in the ways that they need to — regardless of age, title, gender, race, etc.? Can you be more intentional in helping employees to find their way into the networks of relationships that they need to thrive? I see a lot of organizations that have engagement and retention rates that vary by race, age and gender. Underneath that are substantial differences in the size, reach and makeup of the social networks that people are connected to.


“Where do good ideas come from? That is simple … from differences. Creativity comes from unlikely juxtapositions. The best way to maximize differences is to mix ages, cultures and disciplines.”
-Nicolas Negroponte, founder MIT Media Lab


What do the networks of relationships look like in your organization? Are there opportunities to build new bridges in your organization? Is there a lot of overlap and interconnectivity in your organization, or is there a lot of silos and segregation? Are there opportunities to bring new voices into existing conversations and decision making processes?

A Good Way to Change a Corporate Culture

A Good Way to Change a Corporate Culture | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

All business owners know that it is much easier to talk about changing the culture of a business, than it is to effectively bring about any meaningful change, in a well established culture.

 

Anyone who has succeeded in effecting a change in the culture that previously prevailed in their business, will tell you it took a lot longer than expected, and the disruption to the business was greater than expected.

 

This excellent article, acknowledges the difficulties of effecting lasting change in the culture of any business, and it suggests an easier way that can be adopted to effect immediate change that can be built on as the initial change suggested takes effect.

Employee Brain on Stress Can Quash Creativity And Competitive Edge - Forbes | Organisation Development | Scoop.it

A 2012 survey found only 11 percent of organizations have specific stress reduction programs in place.... “What neuroscience is telling us, is that creativity and engagement are essentially about making people happier,” explains Rock who adds, “It’s what is called, a “toward state” in the brain.” In that “state,” Rock explains, workers feel curious, open minded, happier and interested in what they are doing.

Companies With The Best Stories Win: 10 Key Points For Telling Your Story - Forbes

Companies With The Best Stories Win: 10 Key Points For Telling Your Story - Forbes | Organisation Development | Scoop.it
Winning entrepreneurs bond emotionally with employees, investors and customers--and dramatically increase their chances for funding and for long term success--when they hone their ability to tell meaningful stories about their businesses.

 

Here is an article discussing 2 examples of effective business storytelling for marketing/branding/identity purposes that really work. One is a small business (Baby Steals) and the other one is a large enterpriese (IKEA). You will notice the difference in their stories as the size of the business kicks in.

 

Pay close attention to what the founder of Baby Steals did/does -- because implicit in the example shared are story listening skills and how the stories she was hearing from customers/prospects also shaped the success of her company.

 

And then there are 10 tips for bringing storytelling into your business marketing/branding efforts. All are solid. A word of advice here -- working on several of these 10 tips takes time. The ideas you come up with during your first pass you will want to test with friends, colleagues, customers, and prospects. This is an iterative process where your focus and messaging gets sharper, clearer, and more powerful over time. So give yourself the opportunity to play. This goes no matter what size of business you have -- micro to large enteprise.

 

We are heading into the 4th quarter of the year -- what a great time to hone in on your business storytelling, laying a stronger foundation for your company in 2013.
