Larry Lauden, "Risk management, we live in a society so fear driven that we suffer from risk-lock, which renders us useless"
Fear is a part of growth
Susan Jeffries, "fear will never go away as long as I grow."
Best selling chair in America: La-Z-Boy:
Not the Risk-E-Boy
Not the Work-R-Boy
We like comfort: no fear, no growth
We fear failure....
Leadership: Failure Management (Ortberg)
John Ortberg, “Jonathan Salk, before he developed a vaccine for polio that worked he tried over 200 unsuccessful ones.”
Salk shared, “I never failed 200 times at anything in my life, I just discovered 200 ways not to vaccinate polio.”
Churchill 1930’s risked political suicide for speaking out against Hitler
Media learned that Churchill failed second grade
Churchill responded, “I never failed anything, I was given a second opportunity to get it right.”
Failure Management Cont...
Failure is less of an event and more of a judgment around an event.
Not something that happens to us, rather it becomes a way we think about outcomes.
Even greater than our fear of failure is failing in front of others
Failure does not shape you, how you respond to failure shapes you.
Sir Edmund Hillary, after several attempts to scale Everest stood at the bottom of the mountain and said, “You are as big as you are going to get, but I am still growing!”
The Demise of Leadership
Competition: Television and Internet, 1970–present
The circulation of the nation’s daily newspapers plunged since 2006
The slide continues a decades-long trend and adds to the woes of a mature industry already struggling with layoffs and facing the potential sale of some of its flagships.
In addition newsstand sales of magazines fell more than 4 percent, to about 48.7 million copies.
Among domestic newsweeklies, Time magazine reported the biggest drop. Analysts pointed to the increased use of the Internet, noting that more people in 2006 read the New York Times online than on paper.
Newspaper readership goes up with education, and education levels are rising. That favorable trend is offset by the choice of people in each age group to read fewer papers
The trends were obvious… online, tech, blogs, revised methodologies for newstations
Leadership Awareness Model: Locklear
Culture Always Wins!
Chicken or the Pig?
Level of Commitment
What no one talks about
They are fired, or survive....cost
Understand who you are, your needs, and your capacity for growth going into change
Questions: The chicken or the pig?
What do I stand for in the change?
What is your skin in the game?
What are you willing to die for?
Am I willing to stand firm in a fight for the changes?
Do I know when I can exit the process with enough capacity to get the things done I need?
Guiding Principle: Rice. “In a democracy, every life has value, then every life is capable of greatness.”
When things get tough, people become who they are.
If you don’t know what you stand for, you will fall for anything!
Understand Idiomorphic Mimicry
We tend to do what we know, especially in times of stress or change
Idiomorphic Mimicry is a process where we copy form and not function
Often, we don’t understand or even think about the function.
Toyota Lean Movement/ Education
The Outstanding Organization
Lack of Clarity:
Saps energy from employees
Poor Decisions=Poor Results
Organizational Attention Deficit Disorder
Begin to accept “Good Enough out of necessity
Problem Solving is a job for everyone
Understand why and define meaning
Are people invested
Are people invigorated
We don’t have to motivate, we just need to stop de-motivating
Break the bad habits
Epitome of Change:
Technological Innovations and Information Management
Tech Chaos Cycle: http://www.ntma.org/uploads/general/Scott_
3 times the amount of information as we had in our brains in the 1960’s
The ability to apply a powerful tool
The strategy to put it in place
We will either manage well or we won’t, cost of poor management?
Difference between conservative and invested
If we become too invested it slows us down; keeping us from innovation
The reasonable person adopts themselves to the world
Couple months back filed bankruptcy
Own patents on digital photography
They were INVESTED in the film business
Couldn’t make the change!
Change… what is happening in your world?
What are you experiencing in the world of change?
How are you managing this experience?
Do you have a plan?
I am Batman!
