SUMMARY:

A Radical New Model for Unleashing Your Company’s Potential In most organizations nearly everyone is doing a second job no one is paying them for—namely, covering their weaknesses, trying to look their best, and managing other people’s impressions of them. There may be no greater waste of a company’s resources. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential. What if a company did everything in its power to create a culture in which everyone—not just select “high potentials”—could overcome their own internal barriers to change and use errors and vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth? Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey (and their collaborators) have found and studied such companies—Deliberately Developmental Organizations. A DDO is organized around the simple but radical conviction that organizations will best prosper when they are more deeply aligned with people’s strongest motive, which is to grow. This means going beyond consigning “people development” to high-potential programs, executive coaching, or once-a-year off-sites. It means fashioning an organizational culture in which support of people’s development is woven into the daily fabric of working life and the company’s regular operations, daily routines, and conversations. An Everyone Culture dives deep into the worlds of three leading companies that embody this breakthrough approach. It reveals the design principles, concrete practices, and underlying science at the heart of DDOs—from their disciplined approach to giving feedback, to how they use meetings, to the distinctive way that managers and leaders define their roles. The authors then show readers how to build this developmental culture in their own organizations. This book demonstrates a whole new way of being at work. It suggests that the culture you create is your strategy—and that the key to success is developing everyone.

Immunity To Change

Immunity To Change

SUMMARY:

Unlock your potential and finally move forward. A recent study showed that when doctors tell heart patients they will die if they don't change their habits, only one in seven will be able to follow through successfully. Desire and motivation aren't enough: even when it's literally a matter of life or death, the ability to change remains maddeningly elusive. Given that the status quo is so potent, how can we change ourselves and our organizations? In Immunity to Change, authors Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey show how our individual beliefs--along with the collective mind-sets in our organizations--combine to create a natural but powerful immunity to change. By revealing how this mechanism holds us back, Kegan and Lahey give us the keys to unlock our potential and finally move forward. And by pinpointing and uprooting our own immunities to change, we can bring our organizations forward with us. This persuasive and practical book, filled with hands-on diagnostics and compelling case studies, delivers the tools you need to overcome the forces of inertia and transform your life and your work.

SUMMARY:

Why is the gap so great between our hopes, our intentions, even our decisions-and what we are actually able to bring about? Even when we are able to make important changes-in our own lives or the groups we lead at work-why are the changes are so frequently short-lived and we are soon back to business as usual? What can we do to transform this troubling reality? In this intensely practical book, Harvard psychologists Robert Kegan and Lisa Laskow Lahey take us on a carefully guided journey designed to help us answer these very questions. And not just generally, or in the abstract. They help each of us arrive at our own particular answers that can solve the puzzling gap between what we intend and what we are able to accomplish. How the Way We Talk Can Change the Way We Work provides you with the tools to create a powerful new build-it-yourself mental technology.

SUMMARY:

An Everyone Culture by Robert Kegan and Lisa Lahey, with Matthew Miller, Andy Fleming, Deborah Helsing | Summary & Analysis Preview: An Everyone Culture by Robert Kegan, Lisa Lahey, Matthew Miller, Andy Fleming, and Deborah Helsing is an academic description of unconventional employee management systems implemented by three example businesses. Cinema chain ArcLight Cinemas, investment firm Bridgewater Associates, and corporate rewards company Next Jump each exemplify the deliberately developmental organization, or DDO. In conventional organizations, employees spend time that could be productive covering up mistakes or hiding weaknesses from coworkers. In a DDO, the company reinvests that time in activities that help its employees learn from their mistakes, build on their shortcomings, and constantly challenge their weaknesses. DDOs rely on the idea that adults continue to develop mentally well beyond physical maturity. The three features of a DDO are the constant pressure to learn new skills, a trusting environment where people accept and give feedback, and consistent practices that strengthen both of the first two features. These three features are known… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Organizational Traps

Organizational Traps

Download

SUMMARY:

Anyone who has spent time in an organization knows that dysfunctional behavior abounds. Conflict is frequently avoided or pushed underground rather than dealt with openly. At the same time, the same arguments often burst out again and again, almost verbatim. Turf battles continue for extended periods without resolution. People nod their heads in agreement in meetings, and then rush out of the room to voice complaints to sympathetic ears in private. Worst of all, when people are asked if things will ever change, they throw up their hands in despair. They feel like victims trapped in an asylum. And people often are trapped. But they are not trapped by some oppressive regime or organizational structure that has been imposed on them. They are not victims. In fact, people themselves are responsible for making the status quo so resistant to change. We are trapped by our own behavior. Researchers and practitioners have often reflected on these things, but there is a puzzle. On the one hand, there is substantial agreement that these traps are counterproductive to effective performance. On the other hand, there is almost no focus on how organizational traps can be prevented or reduced. This book argues that whatever theory is used to describe and understand such organizational traps should be used to design and implement interventions that reduce and prevent them. Argyris is one of the world's leading management scholars whose work has consistently shed light on orgainzational problems. This book is essential reading for MBAs, managers, and consultants.

Leaving Your Leadership Legacy

Leaving Your Leadership Legacy

Download

SUMMARY:

The authors of this book explain the differences between managing by the 3-Ps (Proximity, Position, and Persuasion) and the 3-Cs (Clarity, Consistency, and Connectivity). Leaders who employ the 3-Ps manage with a focus on the individual. Leaders who use the 3-Cs, however, manage by weaving personal leadership techniques with a process of managing the business or organization that has proven extremely effective during the decade since it was introduced. It's a way to lead a company or organization that leaves a legacy of sustained growth and success for those who come after the leader to latch onto and continue. The book is written as a business novel. What is learned on the protagonist's journey is expanded upon in a lesson at the conclusion of each chapter. Readers are then invited to assess their own legacy potential by completing a self-assessment. The management process this book contains is now being employed successfully not only by small and medium size businesses, but also by Fortune 500 companies, successful municipalities, and the United States Army.
