The Case for Change
From Frustration to Inspiration
Despite the massive transformation that digital technology has brought to our world, leadership and culture remain stuck in the industrial era. As organizations we are as slow, hierarchical and political as ever.
Worse, the bulk of our people – our biggest asset and biggest investment – aren’t engaged. Brought in to nod heads and agree, they watch the slides go past. Most do their best to follow along, but soon the usual voices dominate. Others check out. Some, frustrated they weren’t heard, wander off to plot against the plan.
And we all lose.
Ideas stay silent. Better things aren’t made. Inspiration is muted. The breakthrough stays hidden. The culture stays sick. The risk stays unmentioned. The game-changer never happens. The mediocre wins. Then gets done poorly.
Because the stakeholders weren’t engaged. They never added their value. They never got aligned. They never owned it.
Enough is enough.
It’s time for a new deal. For everyone’s sake. Let’s unleash the power of digital to create a new era of work. An era where we include all voices. Remove the politics. Share what we know. Expose the risks. Change the game. Inspire action. Free each person to contribute their absolute best, and then discover the amazing outcome together. Because there is no better feeling than being truly part of something.
This is what it’s like to be engaged. To revel in our collective best. And it’s what we at ThinkTank are most passionate about – designing systems that help leaders inspire the extraordinary in all of us.
Collective Intelligence technology can help you create a culture of openness, and transform your ability to execute strategic initiatives.
Because together is amazing.
