Thought Leaders and Influencers on Culture

I was also included in this list of thought leaders and influencers on culture earlier this month.

Both this and my role in the Hacking HR conference are interesting as I deliberately try not to talk about culture. I'll be explaining why in the Hacking HR event.

I'll be moderating and inputting in the Culture panel at the start of the conference.

HRD Connect: Does your Function need a Meeting

I’ve been writing on Linkedin about other ways of organising and the need to shift focus from vertical hierarchies to eg horizontal teams. Doing this offers a lot of benefits in terms of increased effectiveness and efficiency.

However, it’s not even always necessary to shift focus in order to gain these benefits. Sometimes simply understanding the current focus is enough. Eg to realise that when we do have vertical hierarchies that we don’t have to treat groupings of people working at the same level and for the same manager like horizontal teams!

I’ve written about this in the context of functional ‘team’ meetings at HRD Connect.

HRD Summit CoLab on Social Leadership

I facilitated a colab on social leadership at the recent HRD Summit in Birmingham, UK.

Their colabs are supposed to be a workshop type event co-developing new insight on a topic, although I think many of these were quite presentational. And I did deliver a short, 20 minute presentation in mine too:

I explained that I think social leadership needs to change because traditional ways of leading of losing traction, and also because the urgency of change is now increasing too.

However, the rest of the hour long session was focused on thinking though how social leadership differs from traditional leadership, and in particular, how it changes across each of the organisational groups I refer to in The Social Organization and my recent articles on this.

I'll be posting on the insights shared by participants later in the month.
