'A Simpler Way' by Margaret J. Wheatley and Myron Kellner-Rogers
This brilliant book is often quoted in Reinventing Organisations and was already written in 1996; Margaret Wheatly was Teal avant la lettre.
Sentences like this make the Teal for Teal heart skip a beat:
"We can be so fixed on the future that we often fail to notice how things are changing around us in the present"
"Systems can't be known ahead of time. Until a system forms, we have very limited knowledge of what might emerge. The only way to know a system is to play and experiment with it."
"Life leaps forward by the sharing of information."
The website of the Berkana Institute, with which Margaret Wheatley is affiliated, is worth a visit too.
This report is one of the largest longitudinal studies of talent, leadership and HR challenges and readiness around the world. The research involved surveys and interviews with ore than 3,300 business and HR leaders from 106 countries. Some quotes:
"Global organizations today must navigate a 'new world of work' - one that requires a dramatic change in strategies for leadership, talent, and human resources."
"Millennials, who now make up more than half of the workforce, are now taking centre stage. Their expectations are vastly different from those of previous generations. They expect accelerated responsibility and paths to leadership. They seek greater purpose in their work. And they want greater flexibility in how that work is done."
"2015 is a critical year. As all these forces gather momentum, we see it is time for creativity, bold leadership, and a fundamental reimagining of the practices HR leaders have used for years."
