Friedmanism is dead. The idea that companies need to value profit above all else is giving way to the concept of values based organisation.
Ensuring the values of your business are aligned to those of the people you've hired.
The thing with values is that they aren't just about what's said, they are about action.
If they aren't lived then they are just a statement.
This is even more important in a VUCA world
Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous
To survive you need to be agile and resilient (but you don't need to pivot).
And the only way to do that successfully is to have the right people.
In this episode I talk with Dr Cherry Vu and Rob England about value driven organisations and why you should put staff first.
Dr Cherry Vu and Rob England are Teal Unicorn, partners in work and life, dedicated to Make Work Better: better results, better lives, better society.
Their focus is management, and how the new ways of working and managing can unlock advancement to better work.
They work mostly in NZ and Vietnam - consulting, coaching, and training. In Vietnam they focus at the executive level, and in New Zealand they work mainly within IT, always improving organisational performance and life.
Together they wrote the book "The agile Manager (small a)". They offer online and onsite learning in new ways of thinking, working, managing, org change, IT, consulting, and selling.
While digital technologies provide possibilities for efficiency gains and customer experience, if the organisation lacks the right mindset for change or current practices are flawed then adding technology will simply magnify those flaws. These are some of the challenges you face in the transformation of your business.
Which is why we focus on equipping your business with the knowledge, training, and support required to ensure lasting digital transformation will become a reality.
