Leadership in the Reaction Vessel

Leadership in the Reaction Vessel

  1. 1. Leadership in the Reaction Vessel <br>Ali Anani, PhD<br>
  2. 2. We need a new creative metaphor <br>for leadership<br>
  3. 3. That was the challenge to me by <br>Eng. Yusuf Tokdemir <br>
  4. 4. The sweet challenge <br>inspired the comparison<br>
  5. 5. How chemicals react <br>and how leaders react<br>
  6. 6. yield products <br>Few collisions<br>
  7. 7. Only a small number of staff <br>achieve the desired productivity<br>
  8. 8. Is it a purely random thing that <br>humans and chemicals show similar behaviors?<br>
  9. 9. Understanding why chemical reactions <br>have low actual productivity<br>
  10. 10. Will help us why employees interactions are <br>of low productivity and better understand role of leaders<br>
  11. 11. Why reactants show <br>less productivity than the theoritical one?<br>
  12. 12. Molecules have to have the right <br>orientation to be productive<br>
  13. 13. Conflicting cultures mean <br>possibility of disorientation<br>
  14. 14. Likewise; employees must have <br>a grand goal to orient themselves to<br>
  15. 15. It is not enough that molecules orient right; it is <br>also collisions must produce enough energy to produce<br>
  16. 16. Same for employees <br>They need to collide with enough energy<br>
  17. 17. Employees must be engaged, happy and enthusiast <br>to surmount the energy barrier to production<br>
  18. 18. Impure reactants lead to <br>impure products<br>
  19. 19. Leaders know how to employ staff <br>who are &quot;pure&quot; to get pure results<br>
  20. 20. Playing with systemic errors <br>makes things worse<br>
  21. 21. Realizing nature of systemic performance <br>variations shouldn't be focal roles for leaders<br>
  22. 22. Great leaders know when not to poke their noses <br>and let systems alone<br>
  23. 23. Catalysts provide reactants <br>with less energy-activation paths<br>
  24. 24. So are great leaders <br>They find better paths to do work<br>
  25. 25. Applying pressure affects only <br>some gaseous reactants<br>
  26. 26. Stressed molecular reactants <br>might lead to uncontrollable products<br>
  27. 27. Great leaders know that <br>stressing employees shall be counterproductive<br>
  28. 28. The use of chemical reactions as a metaphor for leadership <br>brings new insights <br>
