Without changes in education, the future of work will leave more people behind - The Hechinger Report | hokusai | Scoop.it
A glimpse into America’s future labor market suggests a boom in health care jobs, soaring employment in clean energy and a continued decline in manufacturing positions. Those are among the key takeaways from 10-year employment projections released last week by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

The Best Companies Know How to Balance Strategy and Purpose

The Best Companies Know How to Balance Strategy and Purpose | hokusai | Scoop.it

Most companies have articulated their purpose — the reason they exist. But very few have made that purpose a reality for their organizations.

 

Consider Nokia. Before the iPhone was introduced, in 2007, Nokia was the dominant mobile phone maker with a clearly stated purpose — “Connecting people” — and an aggressive strategy for sustaining market dominance. Seeking to extend its technological edge (particularly in miniaturization), it acquired more than 100 startup companies while pursuing a vast portfolio of research and product development projects. In 2006 alone, Nokia introduced 39 new mobile-device models. Few imagined that this juggernaut, brandishing vast resources with such steely determination, could be quickly brought down.

 

In retrospect, it seems inevitable. Nokia was so immersed in executing its strategy that it lost sight of its purpose. When Steve Jobs introduced the first iPhone as “a leapfrog product that is way smarter than any mobile device has ever been, and super-easy to use,” Apple started “connecting people” at astounding new levels. Nokia’s purpose had been co-opted, making its myriad strengths irrelevant. The once-dominant Nokia soon lost much of its market cap and was eventually acquired by Microsoft.

Hopefully you've seen this by now. But if not, this blog post clearly spells out the essential ingredients needed for building high performing teams.

 

What the article lacks are methods to make any of these 5 ingredients happen. There are good tools and methods out there.

What most neglect to tell you however is the significant role deliberate story evoking, story listening, and storytelling play in creating a high performing team.

 

Story evoking, story listening, and storytelling is narrative work and is critical in ingredients #3 (structure & clarity), #4 (meaning) and #5 (impact). When you add #2 (dependability) you generate #1 (psychological safety).

 

Psychological safety is also created by other ways you communicate (appreciation, acknowledgement, fairness, etc.). That means no yelling, threats, attacks, passive-aggressiveness, etc. You know -- all those qualities of toxic leaders.

 

Keep this list handy. Send me a question if you want more specifics about narrative practices and creating high performing teams.

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People

Five Ways To Activate Leadership Potential In Your People | hokusai | Scoop.it

As leaders, most of us would like to imagine that we have all the answers. But we’re constantly faced with new and disruptive challenges that we have no idea how to solve. As we turn to our teams to help us develop innovative solutions, there’s nothing more disappointing than seeing them come back to you with mediocre ideas and lackluster execution.

 

It’s not that your team is wrong. It’s just that they are stuck in the loop of status quo. So, as a leader, you crave new talent with new ideas to drive your team forward. The good news is that the problem may not be that your team doesn’t have the ability to step up to the shifting challenges and expectations of leadership. Instead, you may just need to find a new way to unleash the leadership promise they already have. This means bringing the untapped potential of individuals and teams to the surface, activating it and accelerating development through opportunities and exposure.

 

Here are some of the ways you might be overlooking potential on your team:

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting | hokusai | Scoop.it

Team brainstorming seems like a good idea--at least, on paper. What usually happens is this: the company is experiencing a tough problem that no single person seems able to solve, so someone decides that more minds means more processing power, and before you know it you're all gathered in the conference room.

 

One or two people churn out bad idea after bad idea, while everyone else stares at the wall or multitasks. There are no major breakthroughs and most of you are irritated at the waste of time.

 

Sound familiar? Why is this such a problem?

Useful frame through which to construct a brainstorm session:
1. Choose only necessary participants
2. Know the goals beforehand-and give people time
3. Keep the session brief
4. Mandate participation
5. Encourage "bad" ideas

(...)

 

"That said, here are the five lessons (excerpted and quoted):

  • learn more about who an individual student is today 
  • design "personal on-ramps" to content
  • a unique construct can be created that best fits each student's needs
  • creation of a culture of student agency at every level
  • use a variety of intervention tools early and continuously

What strikes me about this approach is how labour-intensive it is. Sure, this can be accomplished if you remove a lot of the traditional overhead in teaching, from doing the paperwork to delivering instruction to marking tests. But the bulk of the individualization is still being done by hand by the teacher."

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 1, 7:25 PM

Whenever someone talks to me about the future of storytelling, I'm always expecting innovations in crafting or telling business stories.

 

I'm usually disappointed, because what they are really talking about are innovations in tools, applications, processes, or access. The same is true for this post -- and maybe this conference.

 

Basic storytelling skills that haven't changed in millennia are discussed here. The innovation that is good to know about is a tool from Microsoft -- Power BI. This is a data visualization tool that will help certain business storytellers.

 

But let's be clear -- data visualization is not data storytelling. A tool like Power BI can help you find the story. It still requires solid storytelling crafting skills to make it mean something, and to build influence.

 

So enjoy learning about the tool. Follow the advice for story crafting that's included -- just don't think it's anything new :)
