Generation Z characteristics center around the search for truth as the influence of the first generation of true digital natives is now radiating outward. For companies, this will bring both challenges and equally attractive opportunities.

Generation Z characteristics and its implications for companies | Positive futures

Our study based on the survey reveals four core Gen Z behaviors, all anchored in one element: this generation’s search for truth. Gen Zers value individual expression and avoid labels. They mobilize themselves for a variety of causes. They believe profoundly in the efficacy of dialogue to solve conflicts and improve the world. Finally, they make decisions and relate to institutions in a highly analytical and pragmatic way. That is why, for us, Gen Z is “True Gen.” In contrast, the previous…

"Rarely, was a leader better suited to the challenge of the fractured historical moment." The author is talking about Abraham Lincoln, slavery and the Civil War. I couldn't help thinking about Brexit as I read this, but we have no Abraham Lincoln in sight, unfortunately.

The Incredible Power of Connectional Intelligence – Marshall Goldsmith | Positive futures

What is connectional intelligence? A lot of how we measure relationships, especially in the digital world, is through the quantity of our connections. How many LinkedIn followers we have, how many twitter followers, and so on.In my work and research, I have found that we need to shift our notion from quantity to quality because in today’s overconnected era, having a lot of networks doesn’t necessarily lead to measurable change. The key is to develop the skill of cultivating the connections…

Is Management Humane? Behind The Scenes Of The 10th Peter Drucker Forum | Coaching Leaders

Overall, the Drucker Forum was packed with speakers and their brilliant opinions on what’s wrong with managementand its inhumane way of operating. There simply needed to be more examples of how we can fix it. Over the years of its existence, the Drucker Forum has made great strides regarding global representation, as well as gender and cultural diversity. For example, the 2018 version saw a record number of women participate as chairs or speakers. Thirty-eight percent is impressive. By 2019…

How to Be a More Patient Person - The New York Times | Coaching Leaders

Patience, the ability to keep calm in the face of disappointment, distress or suffering, is worth cultivating. The virtue is associated with a variety of positive health outcomes, such as reducing depression and other negative emotions. Researchers have also concluded that patient people exhibit more prosocial behaviors like empathy, and were more likely to display generosity and compassion.A 2012 study in the Journal of Positive Psychology identified three distinct expressions of patience…

Closing the Culture Gap | Business change

Many leaders launch culture initiatives with high aspirations, only to be disappointed by the results. Most leaders believe (accurately) that a purposeful shift in culture is necessary to their business, but few know how to make this leap. Google search data shows a massive increase since 2013 in queries on the term company culture. Scores of books, articles, and speeches on the topic compete for readers’ attention. Responses to the Katzenbach Center’s 2018 Global Culture Survey demonstrate…

“When You Get That Wealthy, You Start to Buy Your Own Bullshit”: The Miseducation of Sheryl Sandberg ? | Coaching Leaders

Let’s be clear about this: in business, as in life, there isn’t always one correct answer. So the teaching of a decision-making philosophy that is deliberate and systematic, but still open-minded, is hardly controversial on its face. But to help students overcome the fear of sounding stupid and being remorselessly critiqued, they are reminded, in case after case—and with emphasis—that there are no right answers. And that has had the unfortunate effect of opening up a chasm of moral…

Good Leaders Don’t Disappear | Coaching Leaders

The simplest questions sometimes hold the greatest potential for insight. As a leader, consider this one: Would you follow you? Not you on your best day, or your worst day, but on a typical day — when you’re communicating, solving problems, and making decisions with the natural tendencies that shape the character of your unique leadership style.This question matters because when you’re just being you in the company of your team, bosses, and clients, you are continuously showing whether you…

How to Fail Successfully | Positive futures

All of my firm’s projects bring together diverse teams to try to make progress on complex and contentious public issues. No single party controls the outcome, and we can’t know in advance what will work, so things often unfold differently than planned. Through these experiences, I’ve come to view unexpected results not as a problem but as a spur for the learning and adaptation we need to do. Improvisation, therefore, is a sign not of failure, but of success. There are structured ways to…

As I look back on the last five Drucker Forum’s that I have attended, the best talks have been those that shed light on how to make Drucker’s great insight a reality. The talks had many different labels. They spoke of Innovation Management, or Design Thinking, or Value Propositions, or the principles of the Mittelstand companies, or Agile, or Business Agility, or the Business Model Canvas, or a new Economic Theory of Value, or Adhocracy, or Humanistic Management, or whatever.When we look…
