Det här tittar vi på vecka 46

“Companies don’t have ideas. Only people do.”

Margaret Heffernan


Den här veckan tittar vi på ett inspirerande TED Talk med Margaret Heffernan. Hon har varit CEO på hela fem olika organisationer och utforskar mänskliga men kontraproduktiva tankemönster, som selektiva skygglappar och undvikande av konflikter, som kan vilseleda både organisationer och deras ledarskap.

Såhär beskrivs hennes TED Talk:

Organizations are often run according to "the superchicken model," where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn't what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results. It's a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader. Because as Heffernan points out: "Companies don't have ideas. Only people do."
