Our organisations are broken. They are broken because we have trained our employees since they were 5 years to sit at a desk.
Complete the work we have told them to do.
Limit creativity to what HQ wants.
Reduce discussion and collaboration to what you've been asked to accomplish.
Do your homework - not what you think is valuable what I think is valuable.
Don't expect a genuine two-way dialogue.
We focus on what is wrong or what our weaknesses are.
Our organisations can be fixed.
Ask people what work they want to complete.
Provide unlimited opportunities for creativity.
Give space for discussion and collaboration both online and offline - 30% off task.
Ask them what side projects people want to complete to move the business forward - free reign.
Give generously by having a genuine two-way dialogue.
Focus on people's strengths and what is working!
