If you are expected to work 60 or 70 hours a week, or to stay connected in the evenings and on the weekends, or you can’t take at least four weeks of vacation a year, or you don’t have reasonable flexibility about when and where you work, then your company can’t be a great place […]

Mis vahe on heal ja halval organisatsioonil?

Lõpetasin äsja investor Ben Horowitzi kirjutatud juhtimisraamatu The Hard Thing About Hard Things: Building a Business When There Are No Easy Answers lugemise. Järgnevad tsitaadid pärinevadki sealt (rõhutused on minu lisatud): In good organizations, people can focus on their work and have confidence that if they get their work done, good things will happen for both the company […]

Heroic view of management is now called leadership

We are mired in a heroic view of management (now called leadership) – centralized, numeric, individualistic and often narcissistic – that is too often detached from what is supposed to be managed. People who believe they can manage everything often prove themselves capable of managing nothing. We don’t need generic managers; we need engaged ones. […]

We’re just trying to fit the old things into the new form

When any new form comes into the foreground of things, we naturally look at it through the old stereos. We can’t help that. This is normal, and we’re still trying to see how will our previous forms of political and educational patterns persist under television. We’re just trying to fit the old things into the […]

Sõltumatud mõtlejad

Traditional education mostly teaches us to copy, to memorize, and to apply other people’s theories. What does this train us for other than performing these thoughtless behaviors throughout our lives? Scott Berkun _________ Samal teemal: Kas juhime talente või karjatame lambaid?

Kas me tõesti kasutame ainult 10 protsenti oma ajust?

Vastuse leiab Jaan Aru blogipostitusest Miks me ei mõista teadvust? See, et me aju kohta nii vähe teame, peegeldub hästi ka selles, kui madal on teadmiste tase ajust ühiskonnas. Näiteks võib tänasel päevalgi Eestis leida koolitusi, kus lubatakse õpetada kasutama paremat ajupoolkera või väidetakse koguni, et te olete seni kasutanud ainult 1 või 10 protsenti […]

Mida rohkem sa tead…

Inglise filosoof Bernard Russel on märkinud, et maailma hädad algavad sellest, et rumalad on liiga enesekindlad ja targad on täis ebakindlust. Selle tähelepaneku tagumine ots võiks visuaalselt välja näha nii: Pildi allikas: Jessica Hagy

Not doing the same things better

The most important source of economic advance comes not from doing the same things better, but from achieving the same objective in a completely different way. John Kay, The startling human progress that economists fail to see. Sama mõtet saab väga hästi laiendada ka juhtimisse.

Akadeemiline juhtimiskoolitus on…

Tsitaat Raivo Vare intervjuust Postimehele: Algne akadeemiline juhtimiskoolitus on bullshit kuubis! Ükskõik milline inimene, kes on ise olnud juht, mina sealhulgas, suudab iga kell isikliku kogemuse pealt tõestada, et selline asi ei hakka tööle. Foto: Toomas Huik / Postimees

When people have strongly held beliefs

When people have strongly held but unexamined beliefs, they act on those beliefs without ever surfacing the underlying assumptions and asking if, indeed their beliefs are logical and empirically sound. Jeffrey Pfeffer and Robert Sutton (from The Knowing-Doing Gap)
