The way we manage organizations seems increasingly out of date. Survey after survey shows that a majority of employees feel disengaged from their companies. The epidemic of organizational disillusionment goes way beyond Corporate America-teachers, doctors, and nurses are leaving their professions in record numbers because the way we run schools and hospitals kills their vocation. Government agencies and nonprofits have a noble purpose, but working for these entities often feels soulless and lifeless just the same. All these organizations suffer from power games played at the top and powerlessness at lower levels, from infighting and bureaucracy, from endless meetings and a seemingly never-ending succession of change and cost-cutting programs. Deep inside, we long for soulful workplaces, for authenticity, community, passion, and purpose. The solution, according to many progressive scholars, lies with more enlightened management. But reality shows that this is not enough. In most cases, the system beats the individual-when managers or leaders go through an inner transformation, they end up leaving their organizations because they no longer feel like putting up with a place that is inhospitable to the deeper longings of their soul. We need more enlightened leaders, but we need something more: enlightened organizational structures and practices. But is there even such a thing? Can we conceive of enlightened organizations? In this groundbreaking book, the author shows that every time humanity has shifted to a new stage of consciousness in the past, it has invented a whole new way to structure and run organizations, each time bringing extraordinary breakthroughs in collaboration. A new shift in consciousness is currently underway. Could it help us invent a radically more soulful and purposeful way to run our businesses and nonprofits, schools and hospitals? The pioneering organizations researched for this book have already "cracked the code." Their founders have fundamentally questioned every aspect of management and have come up with entirely new organizational methods. Even though they operate in very different industries and geographies and did not know of each other's experiments, the structures and practices they have developed are remarkably similar. It's hard not to get excited about this finding: a new organizational model seems to be emerging, and it promises a soulful revolution in the workplace. "Reinventing Organizations" describes in practical detail how organizations large and small can operate in this new paradigm. Leaders, founders, coaches, and consultants will find this work a joyful handbook, full of insights, examples, and inspiring stories.

This is a story of reinvention. Jim Whitehurst, celebrated president and CEO of one of the world's most revolutionary software companies, tells first-hand his journey from traditional manager (Delta Air Lines, Boston Consulting Group) and “chief” problem solver to CEO of one of the most open organizational environments he'd ever encountered. This challenging transition, and what Whitehurst learned in the interim, has paved the way for a new way of managing—one this modern leader sees as the only way companies will successfully function in the future. Whitehurst says beyond embracing the technology that has so far disrupted entire industries, companies must now adapt their management and organizational design to better fit the Information Age. His mantra? “Adapt or die.” Indeed, the successful company Whitehurst leads—the open source giant Red Hat—has become the organizational poster child for how to reboot, redesign, and reinvent an organization for a decentralized, digital age. Based on open source principles of transparency, participation, and collaboration, “open management” challenges conventional business ideas about what companies are, how they run, and how they make money. This book provides the blueprint for putting it into practice in your own firm. He covers challenges that have been missing from the conversation to date, among them: how to scale engagement; how to have healthy debates that net progress; and how to attract and keep the “Social Generation” of workers. Through a mix of vibrant stories, candid lessons, and tested processes, Whitehurst shows how Red Hat has blown the traditional operating model to pieces by emerging out of a pure bottom up culture and learning how to execute it at scale. And he explains what other companies are, and need to be doing to bring this open style into all facets of the organization. By showing how to apply open source methods to everything from structure, management, and strategy to a firm's customer and partner relationships, leaders and teams will now have the tools needed to reach a new level of work. And with that new level of work comes unparalleled success. The Open Organization is your new resource for doing business differently. Get ready to make traditional management thinking obsolete.

Have you ever found yourself struggling with information overload? Have you ever felt both overworked and underutilised? Do you ever feel busy but not productive? If you answered yes to any of these, the way out is to become an Essentialist. In Essentialism, Greg McKeown, CEO of a Leadership and Strategy agency in Silicon Valley who has run courses at Apple, Google and Facebook, shows you how to achieve what he calls the disciplined pursuit of less. Being an Essentialist is about a disciplined way of thinking. It means challenging the core assumption of ‘We can have it all’ and ‘I have to do everything’ and replacing it with the pursuit of ‘the right thing, in the right way, at the right time'. By applying a more selective criteria for what is essential, the pursuit of less allows us to regain control of our own choices so we can channel our time, energy and effort into making the highest possible contribution toward the goals and activities that matter. Using the experience and insight of working with the leaders of the most innovative companies and organisations in the world, McKeown shows you how to put Essentialism into practice in your own life, so you too can achieve something great.

Free to succeed . . . Whether in troubled economic times or during years of prosperity, there is a proven way for companies to boost productivity, profits, and growth. Remarkably, it costs nothing––whether cost is measured in terms of monetary resources or time– –and is simply based on the belief that, if only people can be free to act in the best interests of their company, the results will be tremendous. Freedom, Inc. presents the evidence that this is not the Pollyannaish wish of a few dreamers, but a reality built by bottom-line-focused leaders. . . . The culture of freedom works–and Freedom, Inc. reveals the secrets of a successful business paradigm based on a trusting, nonhierarchical, liberated environment. The visionary leaders profiled here performed near-miracles in driving their companies to unheard-of levels of success, often from unlikely or disheartening beginnings. Businesses as diverse as insurance company USAA, winemaker Sea Smoke Cellars, Gore & Associates, advertising agency The Richardson Group, Harley-Davidson, and Sun Hydraulics have had the insight and courage to challenge long-held management beliefs about human nature and employees–and radically depart from the traditional command-and-control structures, rules, and policies. By freeing up the individual initiative and risk-taking instincts of every employee, these companies showed they could dramatically outperform their rivals in an array of fiercely competitive industries. By listening to employees instead of telling them what to do, by treating them as equals and not limiting information through a trickle-down hierarchy, and by encouraging a culture in which employees have commitments (something chosen) as opposed to jobs (something imposed), these companies liberated their workers to fulfill their own individual potential, which has led to more productive, loyal, and engaged workers, as well as significant measurable profits and growth.

Dans son parcours mêlant sagesse et management, Arnaud Riou a réalisé combien la compassion, l'humilité, l'authenticité, l'équilibre, etc. sont des valeurs essentielles pour soutenir et inspirer toute société humaine. Ces valeurs souvent prônées sont peu incarnées dans la société actuelle. Persuadé qu'il est possible d'associer le management à la sagesse, l'auteur propose de s'ouvrir à une spiritualité laïque tout en repositionnant l'économie au service de l'humain. Depuis 20 ans, Arnaud Riou intervient en entreprise sur les thèmes du management, de la communication et du bien-être. Avec un savoir-faire de plus de 15 ans à étudier différentes formes de sagesse (la méditation, la pleine conscience, le Bouddhisme etc.) acquis auprès de lamas tibétains, de yogis indiens, de moines, de chamans, l'auteur livre un ouvrage plein de sagesse et de leadership. Depuis quelques années, il observe sur le terrain de grandes mutations. Pour lui, l'humanité toute entière vit une transformation radicale dont le monde de l'entreprise ne mesure pas toujours l'ampleur. Notre vieux monde patriarcal et judéo-chrétien construit autour du devoir, de la souffrance au travail, de la réussite individuelle et du matérialisme semble toucher à ses limites. C'est la source de cette conjonction de crises économique, écologique, humaine, environnementale sans précédent que nous traversons. Le monde de l'entreprise va mal parce qu'elle manque de sens et perd la richesse de ses valeurs humaines. Dans le même temps, cette période bouleversée est florissante d'initiatives inspirantes. Jamais les citoyens n'ont été aussi créatifs qu'aujourd'hui pour réinventer d'autres formes de vivre ensemble : plateformes citoyennes, co-voiturage, nouvelles monnaies, trocs, entraides, écopartage. C'est avant tout un besoin de sens, un retour aux sources, à l'authenticité, à la fraternité, à la qualité des liens humains qu'aspire cette nouvelle humanité ! Sur le terrain des entreprises nous découvrons d'autres formes d'innovation managériales et de gouvernances : entreprises libérées, coopératives, holacratie, sociocratie, économie participative et circulaire. L'auteur est parti à la rencontre de ces managers qui oeuvrent pour ré-enchanter le monde de l'entreprise. Il a recueilli les témoignages de Patrick Viveret, philosophe et ancien contrôleur de la Cour des Comptes, Sébastien Henry, coach et diplômé de l'ESSEC qui entraîne les managers à la méditation, Fabien Rodhain, fondateur de l'Académie du Co-développement, Eric Allodi, fondateur du Forum de l'évolution de la Conscience, Christine Guinebretière, fondatrice d'Intégral Vision, Ramuncho Capdevielle, pionnier de l'intelligence collective, Thierry Boiron Président du CA des laboratoires Boiron et de nombreux autres dirigeants et managers. Mais au delà de ces témoignages, Arnaud RIOU nous propose un livre concret qui propose de nombreuses pistes pour manager autrement, dont l'extrait du sommaire est ici : - La crise que nous traversons est une mutation - Prendre ses responsabilités dans ce monde en création - Intégrer la sagesse dans son management - Quelle place pour le cœur en entreprise - La congruence, comment incarner le changement dans sa posture - Retrouver le sens du vivre ensemble - Communiquer autrement - L'art de co-créer, de l'holacratie aux entreprises libérées - Argent, fortune, pénurie et croissance... Comment retrouver le sens vrai des valeurs - 52 pistes en 52 semaines pour se transformer !
