“当有人问你,一分钱给你的想法,你把你的两分钱放进去,另外一分钱会发生什么?”这是一个非常好的问题,也是我最喜欢的乔治卡林报价之一当弗雷德邀请我撰写客座博客文章时,我想到了这一点。
 
Having just put the finishing touches on a book 亚博体育app下载苹果版 organizations that’ll be out next year, I’m happy to toss that second penny into the ring.
 
我认为自己是一名企业人类学家我一生中大部分时间都在研究组织的文化,它们如何发展并与第二次发生的事情相交叉,以及它们中的人如何影响和塑造他们的社区我的咨询任务不是改造成熟的,成功的公司 - 他们的表现非常好这是为了帮助他们和其他创业企业在当今新的商业环境中与今天的员工取得成功,并帮助他们发展。
 
在信息时代,今天的组织中的工人习惯于被出售,而不是被告知罗伯特路易斯史蒂文森曾写道,“婚姻是一个漫长的谈话,”但今天的业务也是如此 - 这就是为什么公司必须改变或者其他风险。
 
我很清楚,信息时代需要一种新的方法来组织人群,并在这些组织中成功运作这种方法我称之为Beta,以区别于旧的Alpha范式,它逐渐渗透到企业文化,招聘,最重要的是领导力。
 
What do all the most successful leaders, companies and workers have in common? In a nugget, it’s the trait we call self-awareness在Heart,Smarts,Guts and Luck中,最近由哈佛商业评论出版社出版的商业头衔,共同作者Anthony Tjan认为,所有成功的商业领袖都擅长于此他观察到的四大核心品质构成了最成功的企业家和商业建设,他们知道什么时候拨打电话......或拨镇他们知道何时强调激情,降低断言的倾向,绕过分析智慧,转而支持创造性思维或关系技巧简而言之,它们与其经营的业务一样具有流动性和适应性。
 
What if you want to be there, but you’re not there yet? Here are a few things to to bear in mind 亚博体育app下载苹果版 today’s and tomorrow’s winning-est organizations.
 
未来最成功的工作场所......
 
    •    Do away with archaic command-and-control models胜利的工作场所是横向的,而不是等级的。在那里工作的每个人都觉得他们是某种东西的一部分,而且,这是下一件大事他们希望成为技术推动下一步推动的所有人,地方和事物的最前沿。
 
    •    Instead of knives-out competition, these workplaces put a premium on collaboration and teamwork, and on building a successful community with shared values.
 
    •    Oh, and I’m not saying workplaces should become democracies – that would never work – simply thatpeople are empowered and encouraged to express themselves.
 
    •    Winning contemporary workplaces stress innovation他们认为,员工需要有机会发挥作用 - 为关键决策提供意见,并将他们的发现和学习交流到彼此。
 
企业文化比您想象的更重要
 
    •    The best teams are hired with collaboration in mindPeople who remain in the culture are those who are dedicated to the ideal that that the whole is more than the sum of the parts.  
 
    •    In the most winning corporate cultures, everyone has something to contribute领导力是流动和弯曲的诚信和品格很重要Everyone knows 亚博体育app下载苹果版 the culture每个人都感受到文化每个人都赞同这种文化每个人都认识到它的激情和细微差别。

    •    In winning corporate cultures, roles, identities and responsibilities mutate weekly, daily, sometimes even hourly重点关注社会,全球和环境责任不,这些举措不仅仅是好主意,它们真的很重要。
 
今天最成功的组织......
 
    •    …look less like an advancing army and more like a symphony orchestra它们被分为几个部分而不是功能部分每个部分都有一个领导者,每个玩家都是同步工作的团队成员管弦乐队指挥可以指挥管弦乐队的作用,但他知道他不是完全负责的他的唯一使命是:促使其他管弦乐队成员尽其所能发挥作用,同时将这些努力融入团结协作中。
 
    •    In life as in business, most people are not generals, they’re lieutenants他们也不一定想成为将军 - 他们希望成为有影响力的球员坦率地说,只要我们获得足够的认可和奖励,我们大多数人都很高兴有机会完成我们擅长的和我们喜欢的事情。
 
    •    The most successful contemporary cultures convey the message that it’s okay to be yourself, and to do your bestYou don’t always have to move up; you can also move across更重要的是,您感到快乐,充实,为社区做出贡献,感到富有成效和回报。
 
今天的领导者必须自我意识 - 自上而下的任务不再有效
 
    •    There will always be the need for decisive leadership, particularly in crisis times (and there’s a touch of the autocrat and control freak inside every successful entrepreneur)But today’s world is all 亚博体育app下载苹果版 collaboration –and launching and maintaining that “long conversation” that Stevenson talked 亚博体育app下载苹果版.
 
    •    The leaders of tomorrow need to practice ego management他们应该意识到自己的偏见,并将重点放在现在和未来他们需要通过奖励协作行为和团队合作来管理员工的自负。
 
    •    Leaders should strive to become what Michael Maccoby dubbed “Productive Narcissists,” tempering high self-esteem and confidence with empathy and compassion董事会,高管和员工的正念,自我和他人,可能是成功的亚博体育下载应用程序的最重要特征Companies have to define the culture; the culture can’t define them所以预先定义它!
 
    •    Finally, companies need to understand that every individual in the organization is a contributor; and the closer everyone in the organization comes to achieving his or her singular potential, the more successful the business will be成功的文化鼓励员工不断刷新他们的工具包,保持灵活性,保持他们在流中的利益。

重新思考招聘

    •    Diversity is key – and by diversity I mean of thought, style, approach and background你正在建立一个团队,而不是填补一个职位来自名牌大学的挑选樱桃的候选人将无助于进一步发展组织,甚至可能反对它。
 
    •    Don't buy resume or credentials购买能力,跟踪记录,性格和文化适合。
 
    •    Avoid hiring only superstarsIt’s 亚博体育app下载苹果版 亚博体育下载app teams, not just the individual当然,创造一支全明星球队是非常诱人的,但如果你没有注意到,那些人不会传球,他们只是投球。
 
    •    Hire competencies but remember: hire with your heart确保新员工融入先前存在的文化,同时还要输入他们的专业知识成为他们的赞助商 - 入职是至关重要的花时间听给他们成功所需的东西。
 
    •    Sometimes you need to hire aliens – folks outside of the culture who bring new ideas and best practices from other places这些人成为文化影响者和变革的推动者。
 
    •    New hires are more than just the college or university they attended简而言之,不要雇用证书,雇用人员。
 
    •    Character matters大多数人不在团队中取得成功不是因为他们不合格或不称职,而仅仅因为他们不是一个很好的文化契合。
 
    •    Act now企业家犯下的一个重大错误就是他们行动不够迅速抛开完美主义,不要等待完美的人 - 他或她可能不存在雇用跟踪记录和潜力。
 
    •    If, looking back, you realize someone is not a good cultural fit, or is not getting it done, don’t wait to make the change有时它就像重新调整自己的位置或重新定义自己的角色一样简单如果他们真的没有完成它,那么是时候做出艰难的决定了。

留意员工缺乏情感承诺的迹象:
 
    •    People complain 亚博体育app下载苹果版 the hours they’re putting in;
    •    Turnover is high, particularly among young top achievers;
    •    Recruitment is difficult; there’s little innovation or creative thinking; and
    •    There’s more politicking that there is actual dialogue.
 
请注意那些对组织有情感承诺的员工:
 
    •    People give extra effort voluntarily;
    •    They become your best ambassadors
    •    Employees make personal and professional sacrifices to stay rather than leave;
    •    People feel free to think outside the box; and
    •    Meetings often result in lively debates and team action.

明天的员工发挥自己的优势

    •    Rather than aspiring to omnipotence, and acting as though they’re the masters of all they survey, Betas focus on what I call “motivated skills,” e.g., the things they know they do exceptionally well他们不是利用同龄人的弱点来获得和掌握权力,而是鼓励他们的团队成员发挥自己的优势,以便整个团队和组织能够取得成功。

自我意识就是全部(但不要想一会儿意味着你很软)

    •    What is self-awareness but bringing an intellectual and emotional understanding of your strengths and their weaknesses, your goals and their motivations to a given situation?
 
    •    Ensure that you hire self-aware people为他们提供适当的工具,技术和反馈,以及成功和赞助的适当杠杆船上的人相信他们会成功然后确保它发生。
 
    •    That said, organizations cannot be whole-heartedly responsible for their employees’ development; employees have to play their roles, tooBeta领导者擅长组建员工,鼓励他们以不同方式思考新想法并挑战他们做新事物。

 If there’s a single takeaway from years of consulting, recruiting and observing both old and new organizations it’s this: People really truly matter他们是你的策略They need to be encouraged and coached to pursue what they do best; to keep doing what they enjoy, and to participate in the success of your 亚博体育下载app.
 
为了在今天和未来生存和发展,企业领导者需要发展和发展自己的自我意识Self-awareness means that you are willing and able to collaborate with employees, directors, customers and yes, even your competitors这意味着您了解组织中的每个人都是具有不同程度潜力的贡献者 - 并且每个人越接近获得高水平的自我意识,组织越接近实现其潜力这意味着您的自我意识会影响员工自身的自我意识,从而点燃企业的整体成功。
 
既然弗雷德已经让我成为了清理击球手,那么我将离开这个离别射门:雇佣聪明人并雇用最优秀的人才不要只是登上某人来填补空位相反,建立一个社区Keep asking yourself not just what you want and need, but what’s best for the organization to grow and evolve.  And remember what George Carlin said: “If you haven’t gotten where you’re going, you’re probably not there yet.”
