Managing For Disruption

Managing For Disruption | Non-profit Governance | Scoop.it

Tradition embraces stability.  Time honored principles get that way because they have strong track records of success.  The tried and true, extrapolated into the future, often looks like a sure thing, while deviating from historical norms can look downright foolish.


Yet the funny thing about the future is that there’s no guarantee that it will look like the past.  Contexts change and when they do, old rules no longer apply.  Following them blindly does not honor the past, but diminishes it by confusing fealty with wisdom.


Since 1960, the average lifespan of a company on the S&P 500 has fallen from more than 60 years to less than 20.  The power of technology will increase as much in the next 18 months as it has in the last 30 years.


Clearly, technology cycles have begun to outpace planning cycles.  We need to learn to manage not for stability, but for disruption.

Simplify Your Life - 5 Ways | Non-profit Governance | Scoop.it
The term simple living tends to conjure up thoughts of simple pleasures and a break from the rush of life. But getting from full capacity to a more simple life is more pragmatic than just slowing down.

The Art of Corporate Storytelling | The Social Workplace

The Art of Corporate Storytelling | The Social Workplace | Non-profit Governance | Scoop.it

Who doesn’t love a good story? I know I do. Especially one that inspires me to think differently or incites me to do something.

 

I also like to find stories elsewhere… especially ones that have personal meaning to the people who tell it. Every company has a story and the best way tell it is through the people who LIVE it.

 

In a recent post, O.C. Tanner says “every team has a narrative, and every company could do better at incorporating storytelling into recognizing their employees. Whether your company has an epic story, a storied history, or has a vision of the future, the way you recognize your employees’ efforts and contributions should be tied to the stories you tell....

An “honest assessment of where we are” can be even more of a catalyst to creating meaningful change, than a clear picture of the future.

(From the article): If all you do is what’s listed in your job description, you can’t get ahead at work. You must always push yourself outside of your normal job activities to take on additional responsibilities. 58% of managers are either very willing or extremely willing to support an employee who wants to capitalize on a new business opportunity at work. By taking on additional projects, you will further your next, develop your skills and be better positioned for leadership opportunities.

We need the soft skills in our workplaces and we need leadership that addresses the humanness of employees.

(From the article): It’s important to remember that we are all driven by a need to feel like what we do matters; that it helps to improve things or creates something beneficial for others. Clearly, the stress and disengagement his employees felt was in part due to a lack of clarity about how their efforts mattered beyond their impact on their organization’s quarterly earnings or the bottom line.

Shakira A. Ali's curator insight, October 12, 2013 11:45 PM

Frankly, I think we're looking for leadership in all the wrong places. I saw an interesting comment by Neil DeGrasse, astronomer and scientist. He observed that more than half of congressional seats are filled by lawyers - people who rely on the SKILL of arguing a point as a means of WINNING a point. This has nothing to do with whether the points made are true, moral, ethical or move society forward in any way.  Maybe we should be looking among the "masses" - those people who are living and working everyday to make life better "on the ground," so to speak. Entrepreneurs. Community organizers and activitists. Those who sit-in and protest and work in food kitchens and community gardens. These are the people who are coming up with solutions on a daily basis, and are unconcerned with, "scoring points."

The article has a servant-leadership flavour to it. The challenge is to get past rhetoric to substantive action.
