Reinventing Management with @JurgenAppelo

The management structures that have built successful organizations have shifted, and not all are paying attention. Consequently stale management techniques that lack humanity repel employees. It contributes to low engagement, dissatisfaction, lack of productivity, mediocre results, and an outdated relationship between Leaders and their employees. Management has become outdated. As a science it’s thrived for over two hundred years. The art part, however, has failed to modernize with the changes. The term itself–management–needs to be tossed aside. Room needs to be made for a new term that better reflects the dynamic times that influence how organizations thrive, produce value for its stakeholders, and provide care for employees physical and psychological wellbeing. But as Jurgen explains in this interview, a change in terminology is hardly enough. Attitudes and behaviors must also change.

Now, I’m not calling for tossing all the rigor and methods that hold up management as a science and art. Only the practices and philosophies that treat human beings as assets and dehumanize the work experience. What should replace the outdated modes of management. Well, Leadership is a start. What, however, might that look like? That’s the focus of this interview with management/Leadership thinker Jurgen Appelo.

Interview Highlights

  • Why management is too important to leave to managers
  • Why everyone is responsible for organizational culture
  • What Management 3.0 is and how it compares to Management 2.0
  • The necessary inputs to create a strong team culture that leads to results

    There’s a more human way to do business.

    In the Social Age, it’s how we engage with customers, collaborators and strategic partners that matters; it’s how we create workplace optimism that sets us apart; it’s how we recruit, retain (and repel) employees that becomes our differentiator. This isn’t a “people first, profits second” movement, but a “profits as a direct result of putting people first” movement.
