Every massive social change calls for a breakthrough in the way organizations work. In today’s big shift—from the industrial economy to the Connection Age—that breakthrough must focus on the interactions between people: HOW people connect to unleash their ideas and creativity for success in a challenging marketplace. To address this issue, Inclusion as the HOW® establishes new mindsets and expectations for how people behave, treat one another, and operate within the enterprise. The results are a more connected workforce, wider bandwidth for collaborative thinking and innovation, and higher operational performance. Click here to read.

More and more organizations are making decisions quickly - they have to, given the challenges of today’s marketplace. So how do individuals and teams fulfill the need for speed? With two essential building blocks: trust and interaction. To move quickly, you must be able to trust that your colleagues will follow through on commitments and work with you for the common good and shared success. To build that trust, in turn, requires interaction: taking the time to get to know others, what is important to them, and how they do their best work. Almost any team can move faster and more efficiently with these two building blocks in place. Click here to read.

How can leaders practice new behaviors - and move toward internalizing them - when everyone is watching their every move? To create a breakthrough in this area, leaders need a supportive environment in which to grow, learn, and hear honest feedback. That environment has been successfully replicated in the Pod: a small group of six to eight people, selected by the leader, who meet with her or him regularly to discuss and practice new behaviors. In the process, Pods not only provide the feedback that leaders value so highly, but also demonstrate how inclusive behaviors can identify issues, change interactions, and improve performance.

In the Industrial Age, workers were valued for their hands and feet, not their minds. Management knew best, and people were asked merely to do as they were told. Today, that model no longer works because of the external challenges facing organizations, as well as the attitudes and beliefs of new generations in the workforce. Indeed, the coming generation’s emphasis on meaningful work, fast promotion, multiple careers, and other values continually challenges the notion of company loyalty. How can organizations adapt to this new environment? By letting people out of the box of organizational rules and regulations. Flexibility and respect for differences are key to organizational success and higher performance in this environment, so the notion of keeping people in a box needs to cease. Click here to read.

Everyone is talking about the “brain drain”: the Boomer exodus that has already begun to sap organizations of their intellectual capital. What is the connection between this and ageism? What can organizations do to offset this drain and leverage the possibilities that will enable all generations to contribute and all individuals to reach their goals?
We need a mind shift FROM thinking of age as a relatively innocuous dimension of difference (a dimension in which we accept limits and stereotypes as fact) TO seeing the value of an organization that is truly multigenerational, using the best thinking from everyone and leveraging opportunities that can only come from cross-generational creativity.
