Digital communication is modifying the way people work together in all fields political, business even education. Skilful participation is the root of success.
People expect companies to play a major role in shaping the planet. There are no bystanders.
Organisations have a tremendous opportunity - and a great responsibility – to redefine their Purpose and contribute to a healthy, profitable ecology of customers , suppliers, employees and society at large. This is “shared value”.
Leaders must explore how to embed this Purpose in all their choices and actions in order to remain efficient, and to act responsibly.
Today there is suffering in organisations because of the disconnect between what the company is supposed to embody in its hyper-competitive environment, and what people are really experiencing day to day.
The organisational dynamics and structure of a company strongly determines whether individuals bring out the best or the worst of themselves. The rules of the game prevail over individual aspirations.
Our challenge today is to deeply redesign our ways of working. No amount of tweaking the ill adapted, tired, pyramid-matrix paradigm will work. We must be bold.
While we do not know exactly what form these new organisations will take, they will definitely integrate: greater consciousness, liberation of individual and collective energy, and making people the authors and actors of their working lives.
We believe that collective intelligence can be designed into efficient learning organisations to bring in innovative solutions that often come from the edge and not from the centre of organizations.
The companies that make this change are better place to work and have the chance to be more profitable and long lasting, and contribute meaningfully to the world.
