Wolves Cooperate With Each Other, Dogs Form Hierarchies

Wolves Cooperate With Each Other, Dogs Form Hierarchies | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it
Dogs are thought to be domesticated wolves, with the first dog owners, living tens of thousands of years ago, favoring their helpful, cooperative nature. Now, a duo of comparative psychologists studying interactions of lab-raised dogs and wolf packs reveal something rather unexpected: Wolves cooperate, dogs submit, Science reports.

"Why Management" - The Ultimate Knowledge Area | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it

Maybe I am about to get flunked too for what I am going to say here

Claude Emond's insight:

Written in 2009, but still relevant. PMI added a 10th area but is still not giving WHY management/Benefits Management the place it deserves « to inspire everyone to take action», if I paraphrase Simon Sinek. My humble opinion.

How Change Courageous Are You? The “Serving Two Masters” Trap

How Change Courageous Are You?  The “Serving Two Masters” Trap | Thriving in the Project Age | Scoop.it

...an overlooked statistic tells quite a story.  If only 14% believe that “everyone” is responsible for change success, how can the whole system change? Answer … it doesn’t.


...Change Agent Moment of Truth

In theory, internal consultants are neutral. In reality, many HR executives feel threatened by internal OD consultants to the point that I’ve witnessed OD consultants fired for their successes.

     

The dilemma is all about the question, “who do you serve?”

Stop the insanity of blaming the change recipients & start holding up the mirror for you, whether you are a change agent or change leader.

   

If you level the playing field, give a voice to the silent majority, and really confront change leaders and fellow change agents with their contributions to the status quo, you just might be part of the 20% instead of the 80%.

Regardless of the mixed statistics about how many change initiatives fail, Ron Koller's key point about only 14% believing change is everyone's role is quite telling.   
   
Do you agree with the change roles and the in/out "everyone" is responsible for change comparisons?  

   

Moreover, in my conversation with Ron Koller recently about courage and the OD / Change Agent, have you found ways to be successful when you "level the playing field, give a voice to the silent majority, and really confront change leaders and fellow change agents with their contributions to the status quo?"

I quit my job last summer.

Right now I tell people that I write books, have a blog, hold presentations and workshops for people interested in starting a company.

Claude Emond's insight:

Tells a good story of a disastrous change management approach and explains why it failed. Alas, this story is a universal one and I still do not understand why most people «managing» changes still insist on doing the same mistakes over and over again. You just cannot decide for anybody when, how and how much they will change; they will just fight you back !...as you will do yourself if someone tries this «change recipe» on you, right ?
