Seth Godin: How to start--and ship

Seth Godin: How to start--and ship | Transforming Leadership | Scoop.it

We are our own worst enemies when it comes to the emotional labor of doing great work, says MIX Maverick Seth Godin. He offers up powerful wisdom on how to overcome all of your excuses and get in the habit of starting the right things--and shipping everything you start.

Jason S Brown's insight:

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

That’s the big question Seth Godin asks in his book Poke the Box. The dynamics of the global marketplace we’re all in demands that we think differently—and then move those ideas forward to completion. Or as Godin puts it: start something and then ship it. Management Innovation eXchange recently asked Godin about the importance of starting and shipping and the relation between the two. Do you agree or disagree? Do you have a commitment to "starting and shipping" in your approach to leadership?

Gary Hamel: Reinventing the Technology of Human Accomplishment

Watch Gary Hamel, celebrated management thinker and author and co-founder of the Management Innovation eXchange (MIX), make the case for reinventing manageme...
Jason S Brown's insight:

This video is an excerpt of a presentation by notable management expert Gary Hamel, who challenges the ubiquitous top-down management model. Now, he’s not an anti-authoritarian questioning all things in a hierarchy. His point is that our approaches to management and operations have not kept pace with the times and actually create a competitive disadvantage. We continue to manage our organizations in ways that were designed to meet yesterday’s business needs.

 

Hamel sees management as one of the important inventions of the last century—but one that was created to address a problem, a 20th century problem. The problem was getting people to adapt to the massive shift from agriculture-based work to manufacturing. And while other inventions of the last 100 years have seen innovation and change, by and large, management models have not.

 

Hamel believes we need to create organizations that are people-centred and fully use the gifts of all their people. Why? Because human beings are the key—we intrinsically have the resilience and adaptability that our organizations need to keep up with today’s accelerated pace of change. Organizations that thrive in the next decade and onward will be those that evolve their management approach faster than others and in a way that makes them more adaptable, innovative, and engaging to work for.

 

That’s a bold challenge.

Jason S Brown's insight:

Change is the norm in a global economy. Add to that the internet has made it possible for web-based companies to act as intermediaries and put extra pressue on financial institutions' profits. It's now more important than ever for credit unions to keep pace with the marketplace. To do that, you need everyone on board. Envision Financial president Shelley Besse provides tips on how leaders can help employees embrace change.
