Management LAB Impact and Strategy Ideas

 

TESTING :

 

We encourage individuals to test assumptions about others and themselves, for example by adopting alternative styles in decision-making, problem-solving and leadership. At the organisational level, the learning experience should provide the challenge for executives to question the assumptions underpinning their decisions and business strategies – more than just questioning the methods they use to maintain the current plans.

 

FORMING NEW STRUCTURES :

 

Organisational and individual development is often based on shaking and re-forming organisational structures, networks and partnerships. We encourage cross-discipline collaboration process and diversity as a business objective in itself (new networks lead to new ideas and actions).

 

TRANSFORMATION :

 

Laboratory-based discoveries became famous due to real-life problems that they solved. Equally, experiments are not planned in a vacuum – they take account of existing data, past successes and failures. This informs how we approach the design of our programmes and underpins the value we seek to give.

 

AWARNESS & PHYSICALITY :

 

You can touch, see and smell. There is a ‘physicality’ about human learning and the self-awareness of physical state (e.g. level of stressor of joy) plays in one’s growth and development. We pay close attention to this in the environment we use for learning and we incorporate awareness of physical state into learning.

 

The managing “push” vs Leadership

 

Most project managers I come across are managing the project, not leading it. This means that they are very rational and task-oriented. They focus on events and processes such as calculating effort, estimating duration, allocating resources, reporting progress, etc. And the way in which they manage the team is one based on authority, to the tune of: “As the project manager I have authority over my team members. They should do as I tell them because that’s what they get paid for.” This is a “push” approach. Managers generally tell people what to do.

 

The leadership “pull”

 

Leadership, on the other hand, is quite different, mainly because it’s more people focused. Leaders don’t typically tell people what to do. Instead, leaders motivate team members by appealing to them at an individual level and by inspiring them to contribute to the overall vision. We call this a “pull” approach. Leaders understand what it is that makes each person tick and can show individuals how their strengths fit into the bigger picture. Leaders are more visionary and inspirational, and not so focused on being skill-centric.
