NETWORK THINKING

Is Membership the truest form of Leadership?

What happens when the rules that define great followership are the same rules that make for great leadership?

There are countless roles within a team; networker, scheduler, coordinator, moral compass, taskmaster, driver, connecter, integrator, supporter, facilitator, critic, visionary, challenger, innovator, calibrator…, etc., etc.

When leadership, in it many forms, becomes a small part of a very long list of team roles many aspects of autonomy become visible. Advancement in a career path is no longer restricted to management roles regardless of desire or aptitude for it. Team members are encouraged to choose the roles they fit best, and to switch roles freely when it is best for the team.

Are we struggling because we organize ourselves around the ideas of yesterday that cannot contain the ideas of tomorrow?

The right constraints, made by the right people, can give us the information we need to be guided by the best decisions — our own.

What do our fears of artificial intelligence tell us about our fears of allowing humans the autonomy to make consequential decisions?

Your organization’s levels end where they begin, by including levels well beyond the limits of your organization.

As members of organizations we are all architects, with ever-changing roles and goals. As members of humanity we continuously seek new and better ways to organize.

Daily activities

These Five Perspectives might help solve the problems your organization hasn’t uncovered yet

Design Thinking

Translate the capabilities of teams and individuals into insightful and innovative customer impact & customer value.

Systems Thinking

Align the value created by organization’s process and workflows rules and incentives towards a compatible culture.

Perspectival Thinking

See the entire organization as a nested ecosystem of teams and individuals with mirroring needs and activities.

Contextual Thinking

Everything an individual produces in an organization, is “consumed” by someone else. The Internal product connects the needs and values of the internal customer.

Network Thinking

From culture to informal networks, explore the value created between organizational groups and people.

The Arc of Influence

Societies create organizations to fulfill their needs. Any org misaligned with a changing society will fail to thrive without understanding how it must change.

“In every confrontation, and in every conversation, there is an opportunity to be the better person, or to prove that someone else is.”
