Billy R Bennett's insight:

Here is my favorite from the article (other than the good image)


"Connecting the data without connecting the people still promotes a siloed decision making approach focused at functional expertise. Unfortunately, in many cases the people do not want to be connected"


How true!


In the past few years we added an interesting service to our Organization Development business - Crisis intervention teams.  Businesses had "centralized", "cost reduced", and "process optimized" themselves into near total dysfunction.  Usually, centralized functions lost the ability to make decisions across funtions. The result in two major cases was a complete collapse of the ability to deliver.  Why is that an OD opportunity?  Because, it is a total organization failure.  Leadership and collaboration must be rebuilt.  Collaboration in the system must be structured.   Emotions and unhealthy behaviors must be healed.  We've found that injecting a skilled team of professionals (who already know how to work as an intervention team )  fill the void and provides leadership "life support" until sustainable solutions can be developed.


When the dysfunction reaches crisis - just getting people around the table is not enough - People see it as unnecessary and dangerous to share information.  You must have effective leadership and expertise who know how to get alignment and agreement.  These same leaders must manage "outside the room" to make sure everyone keeps commitments and shares informaiton until longer term solutions can be rebuilt.

They can help you untangle facts from feelings, people from the process, product from the market and the individual issues from the organization's structural issues.
Billy R Bennett's insight:

Are you surrounding yourself with the support you need?


A very good short article that can help you understand the kind of mentor you may need.  Wendy makes a distinction between the Coach and the Counselor.  The coach provides feedback and tactical suggestions, while the counselor provides emotional support.  Surrounding yourself with a few good resources gives every leader a better shot at success.


In our coaching work we often provide a coaching "team" - usually a pair of professionals and in it we often divide the roles of coach and counselor.
