Serve the people, invest in the people. The company will grow as the minds grow.

True continuous improvement requires a servant leader attitude and outlook to be successful within an organization. Continuous improvement (in its purest sense) actually demands that leadership support others in their development. Hence, rather than excersising power over the people, the power should be shared with the people by putting their development needs first.

Let’s look at the word service.

Service has multiple definitions. I am going to use three key ones.

  • The action of helping someone
  • A system supplying a need
  • Perform routine maintenance on (something)

Social Business Is at the Center of the Enterprise

Social Business Is at the Center of the Enterprise | Design thinking & HCD, Kaizen, Social enterprise - think & act differently | Scoop.it
Social business is rapidly moving into the mainstream of the enterprise, and the IT organization must play a key role in creating an effective strategy.

Don Dea's curator insight, March 11, 2015 12:15 AM

Social business concepts increasingly provide a window into data, information and knowledge. Communication and collaboration tools—including blogs, wikis, message boards, apps and more—are delivering broader and deeper insights than anyone could have imagined a decade ago.

"The end goal is to have deeply engaged customers and deeply engaged employees—and bridge the two groups effectively," says Sean O'Driscoll, a principal at professional services firm PwC.

Not surprisingly, the task can prove extraordinarily challenging. Syncing business processes, technology tools and cultural factors requires fresh thinking and an innovative approach to IT. What's more, maximizing the return from social media requires an organization to plug into a variety of other tools, including mobility, cloud computing and big data. "It's requires a broad scope," he adds.

One of the stumbling points for many organizations attempting to navigate today's digital environment is a tendency to view business in a transactional way. The problem with this approach, O'Driscoll says, is that it tends to create greater disengagement.
