The eight essentials of innovation 04/22/2018

The eight essentials of innovation

"if companies assimilate and apply these essentials—in their own way, in accordance with their particular context, capabilities, organizational culture, and appetite for risk—they will improve the likelihood that they, too, can rekindle the lost spark of innovation."

re:Work - Guide: Practice innovation with design thinking

Google has been praised as a fantastic place to work and so much of that comes from establishing and maintaining a culture of excellence. I had the honor of attending an AMAZING design thinking workshop at the ISPI annual conference in Seattle, WA. Here are some of the amazing resources that are part of the Creative Skills for Innovation (CSI) workshop that I experienced in Seattle. The CSI workshop gives people the mindset, process and tools to accelerate innovation and to find out what it takes to get from ill-defined problems to well-designed solutions.

Researchers agree that is vitally important. In a study from Columbia Business School, only 15 percent of respondents indicated their company paid sufficient attention to its culture; however, 90 percent indicated a strong belief that the quality of a company’s culture is linked with its financial success. So what does a strong, positive culture look like? In addition to the ideas offered by Forbes, consider using the Emergenetics® Profile to help you create a supportive environment where employees feel their perspectives are understood and valued. http://bit.ly/2peEjPe

Mental health is your business: The toxic job characteristics that risk our well-being • ScienceForWork

"Stressful events we experience in the workplace can increase our risk of developing common mental health disorders, such as depression and anxiety

In particular, two of the most toxic situations are likely to be:
1) Experiencing overwhelming demands alongside having little control over decisions (job strain)
2) Putting in high effort for very little reward

Monitoring and addressing these factors in our workplaces may have huge benefits for employees’ mental health."

Mental health is your business: The toxic job characteristics that risk our well-being • ScienceForWork It is estimated that more than 3 in 10 employees will experience a mental health problem each year, with a staggering 80 million working days lost to anxiety and depression. These disorders are common yet devastating, and can make work a constant battle for employees. With such a widespread impact o...

Five questions about psychological safety, answered. • ScienceForWork 01/28/2018

Five questions about psychological safety, answered. • ScienceForWork

"Although trust and psychological safety have a lot in common, they are not completely interchangeable concepts. A key difference is that psychological safety is thought to be experienced at the group level — most people on a team tend to have the same perceptions of it. While trust usually relates to interactions between two individuals or parties " Teams have a collective (network) trait that is not the sum of the individual contributors. It's time to dust off our thinking about performance innovation among self-organizing teams of knowledge workers.

Five questions about psychological safety, answered. • ScienceForWork Although the concept of psychological safety has been around since the 1960s, it recently came storming into the mainstream when research by Google on high-performing teams hit the news. While Google’s research, which focused on 180 of its teams, is illuminating, this evidence summary highlights s...

The five trademarks of agile organizations

"When pressure is applied, the agile organization reacts by being more than just robust; performance actually improves as more pressure is exerted. Research shows that agile organizations have a 70 percent chance of being in the top quartile of organizational health, the best indicator of long-term performance. Moreover, such companies simultaneously achieve greater customer centricity, faster time to market, higher revenue growth, lower costs, and a more engaged workforce:" At Ventivia we believe agility agility is born in the heart and mind igniting a more conscious and collaborative organization! http://ventivia.com/

Education is the kindling of a flame: How to reinvent the 21st-century university

“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
"Talk to experienced CEOs and CPOs (chief people officers) of major companies and ask them what they need. They commonly say: people, teams, and leaders that can make our organization thrive in a world of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, ambiguity). By that, I believe they mean people and capacities that can take their organization into the 4.0 world in which they respond to disruption by co-sensing and co-shaping the future."

How to create an agile organization

"...organizational agility is not a one-size-fits-all undertaking. The specific practices a unit or organization should focus on to become agile depend on whether it is currently bureaucratic, start-up, or trapped."

Low-Value Traps 09/11/2017

Low-Value Traps

"The very resources one needs to experience high value, in what one gives to and receives from human interactions, do not seem to be available in the low-value trap. We need support, recognition, and the ability to make a unique contribution, yet these resources are usually not available in the low-value trap. Are we stuck, then, or is there a way out? "
