Five business containers for collaborative leadership
In a previous post, I mentioned how relevant organizational containers are to help self-organize individuals and teams activities. I´m focusing myself on five containers:
- Adopting a systemic model: each pillar in the model helps to explain both individual and team activities.
- Generating future business scenarios: plausible futures help to expand individual and team perspectives; desired future requires individuals and teams willing to share a vision.
- Sharing common vision and brand architecture: brand claim, touch points and storytelling fixes individual and team desired interactions with clients.
- Developing business principles and cultural identity awareness: business principles pose individual limits to collective action; they are often connected to brand touch-points.
- Creating a sustainable collaborative habitat: multi-system learning communities become containers for adding individual value and for learning how to expand business.
Implementing any of the above container requires both individual and collective learning mostly through a collaborative conversations process. Collaborative leadership implies influencing system learning and adaptation through the selected container, while been sensitive to individual and team resistances to learn and adapt.
