Cause and Purpose vs Urgency for Change? 

Cause and Purpose vs Urgency for Change?  | Thriving or Dying in the Project Age | Scoop.it
Claude Emond's insight:

Very good post by Jason Little.
Urgency will get you nowhere if there is no underlying cause and purpose. It is shared cause and purpose that give some sense to our work and that are the foundations of alignment, durable employee engagement and resulting performance and success in the face of continuous change. The French (Jerome Barrand - http://en.grenoble-em.com/directory/jerome-barrand ) have created a new word for all this cause and purpose stuff: «effisens»: «effisense» would be the english translation. Ultimately, if «effisense» is lacking, efficiency is an illusion and effectiveness is targetless ! Urgency gives an «urge» for speed. Cause and purpose give a direction to this speed, it generates velocity (speed with a vector going in the right direction ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6lrr6-ADY0 ).
This whole thing reminds me of a poster we had in our offices a long time ago. It was showing a guy running with a big pack-sack on his back with the caption; «I don't know where I am going, but I am sure going there fast». That's the same as having a sense of urgency with no organizational cause and purpose! :)

This article highlights what CEO's can do to encourage open and honest dialogue, which ultimately helps the organisation move forward and improve in ways that make sense.  Too often, there is a culture of "The Emperor's Clothes" in operation, with either the CEO only wanting to focus on the "positive to keep employees motivated", or where employees don't feel able to tell the "truth" of their experiences.

This article breaks the myths. Many people believe the multitasking it a skill of which they are proud. It's not! Let's listen the studies.

Antonio Ormachea's curator insight, April 1, 2016 12:32 PM

 

As a business owner you will always have a lot on your plate, and if you are like most business owners, you will pride yourself on your ability to multitask in order to get everything done. Research has long shown that multitasking is actually a very inefficient way in which to operate, yet business owners tend to take little notice of such research findings. Perhaps, if you were conscious of what multitasking is doing to your brain, you might review your modus operandi, and focus on monotasking instead. This article should be a wake up call for every business owner who sees multitasking as a virtue.

«You, as CEO, have the final word on most strategic and operational decisions, the most critical aspects of cultural impact—selectivity, simplicity, and targeted persistence—They are in your domain. Moreover, your role as cultural leader is, more likely than not, the single thing you will be most remembered for. That’s why so many CEOs refer to culture as their highest priority; it is the primary vehicle for establishing their legacy. »
