How leaders kill meaning at work - McKinsey Quarterly - Governance - Leadership

How leaders kill meaning at work - McKinsey Quarterly - Governance - Leadership | The Social Leadership Sessions | Scoop.it
Senior executives routinely undermine creativity, productivity, and commitment by damaging the inner work lives of their employees in four avoidable ways. A McKinsey Quarterly Governance article.
Jan Friman's insight:

"The first, and fundamental, requirement is that the work be meaningful to the people doing it".
- Creating meaning is something that cannot be externalized from one to many. It's a team effort, a joint venture - co-created aligning all efforts toward a meaningful purpose. It's a joint process that demands buy in on the most fundamental level. This is perhaps the main task of a leader in a social organization. It's the basis of Social Leadership.

5 Methods for Social Leadership: Try Reverse Mentoring - Forbes

5 Methods for Social Leadership: Try Reverse Mentoring - Forbes | The Social Leadership Sessions | Scoop.it
I've been thinking a lot about global leadership applications for social learning lately.
Jan Friman's insight:

Creating a Social Organisation built on traditional business models will be a gigantic task, requiring huge investments both in time and capital. Probably very few organisations can afford this in a fast paced and ever changing environment. True Social Leaders have to re-think their business model from the ground up, forming a new socially agile and adept organisation. 

 

There can be no rules to enable this type of organisation, only guidelines, much like Community guidelines supporting the common good.

"We cannot know what is known unless the organization, and the entire business ecosystem are transparent. We need to be able find things fast, which is the main benefit of using social media: increasing speed of access to knowledge. Social media enable us to be transparent in our work but transparency is not enough. Each knowledge worker must also narrate his or her own work". | Harold Jarche

The Social Organization

The Social Organization | The Social Leadership Sessions | Scoop.it

"A social organization is one that strategically applies mass collaboration to address significant business challenges and opportunities. Its leaders recognize that becoming a social enterprise is not about incremental improvement. They know it demands a new way of thinking, and so they’re moving beyond tactical, one-time grassroots efforts and pushing for greater business impact through a thoughtful, planned approach to applying social media. As a result, a social organization is able to be more agile, produce better outcomes, and even develop entirely new ways of operating that are only achievable through mobilizing the collective talent, energy, ideas, and efforts of communities".

Company to Keep (1) (Photo credit: Robert Bejil Photography) A software technology company I consult with is in the middle of a sea change, a shift from one workplace culture to another.
Jan Friman's insight:

Key for the 'Engaged Social Leader':

"Shared sense of value and purpose. People join companies for lots of reasons, but what’s more interesting is why they stay. They stay because they share the values, the purpose, the mission and vision. If you’re a leader and you don’t share your sense of the company’s value and purpose, you’ll be doing a lot of remedial recruiting." | Meghan M. Biro

"In this newly transparent workplace, there is no place to hide, or as Mark Britz wrote, “Social Media spreads your culture quickly … for better or worse.” This change alone can be enough to cause massive organizational upheaval. It must be addressed by modelling good “Net Work” behaviours. Working smarter is not just about using technologies but changing our routines and procedures". | Harold Jarche

"While management often espouses the notion that good ideas can come from everywhere, in practice there are “thinkers” who create strategies and designated “doers” who execute those strategies. But that only leaves an air sandwich in the organization, where debates, tradeoffs, and necessary discussions are skipped. This air sandwich is the source of all strategic failure. Instead of centralized decisions, we need distributed input and distributed decisions"

"Enterprises with several years of social business efforts have failed to reach the tipping point and cross into mainstream adoption of social collaboration".

"Recognize that collaboration doesn’t just happen inside your company’s walls. Collaboration crosses many boundaries from time, distance and corporate firewalls. Employees are using multiple tools and multiple networks both outside & inside. Adding one more tool to the mix doesn’t make life easier."
