Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 10, 1:50 PM

I love the research shared in this organization that makes the point about the need for agile organizations.

 

Becoming an agile organization is critical to meet the push for digital transformation that is going on today and in the future.

 

I particularly like the comparison chart between today's org common org model, and the future model of an agile company.

 

Where are you at, and where are you headed with this fundamental shift in how business gets done?

What a powerful piece from Harvard Business Review (HBR) with some astounding stats about the sorry state of leadership and management in organizations.

 

It's eye-opening

 

Businesses are confronted with enormous pressures these days to transform themselves digitally, find new business models, sources of revenue, and be innovative. It's going to be doubly hard to do so if your organization is experiencing any of what the HBR post is talking about.

 

But I also like the 4 ways the author discusses as ways to remedy the situation. Narrative skills increase #s 1, 3, and 4. Read it and then get your game on.

When you start leading a new team, one of your first imperatives is to assess the caliber of the talent you are inheriting. At a minimum, you’ll want to focus on three dimensions: 

(1) Competence — Does each individual match the competence demands of their role? 

(2) Motivation — Does each member of the team possess the required drive and the willingness to learn new capabilities as needed? 

(3) People skills — Is each person capable of building constructive working relationships with their colleagues and with you?

This is the most important skill for the digital age

This is the most important skill for the digital age | Leadership | Scoop.it

Humans bring three dimensions to the job market: physical, cognitive and emotional. Machines have surpassed us in both the physical dimension (less and less manual work is necessary) and the cognitive dimension (Artificial Intelligence is increasingly able to surpass humans in tasks such as chess and medical diagnosis). This leaves the emotional domain where humans still have the upper hand. As more and more jobs are automated, the nature of the value that humans will add will evolve to focus around creativity, connectivity with others and self-fulfilment.

There is nothing worse than working for a know-it-all-boss.

This is because they believe that the reason that they have been put in charge is that they are not only smarter than everyone else, but because they already know everything about the business, that everyone else is just there to do their bidding and execute. 

This means that when it comes to deciding strategy, high level planning, solving problems, or resolving issues, there is no need, or even any point, in involving anyone else because there is nothing of any real value that they can add, that they don't already know.

You're Overthinking Your Communication Strategy. Start With Two Words: 'Help First'

You're Overthinking Your Communication Strategy. Start With Two Words: 'Help First' | Leadership | Scoop.it

"What gets measured gets managed." 


These are just five little words, but they’ve been repeated so often that they’ve become gospel in the marketing and communications management world. Business lore attributes the quote to management expert Peter Drucker, which gives it mighty weight. Anything Peter Drucker says should be chiseled in stone, right? 


But there are two things wrong with this quote. First, the evidence supporting its attribution to Drucker is thin. Truth be told, we don't know who said it. Second, as business advice goes, it's awfully weak. It implies that anything that can't be measured isn't worth managing -- and that's just wrong.

According to a report by Smart Recruiters, you should begin with your company handbook as this provides a good framework for your business and its expectations of its employees.
