  • In the next 25 minutes I want to give you the flavor for my next book, and share some key insights from my last one. When I wrote The Plugged-In Manager, I was focused on helping people lead with all their resources: Their people, their technology tools, and their organizational practices. Over three years of workshops and talks, I’ve had opportunity to see these dimensions at work in many industries and settings… but one thing I’ve learned about plugged-in managers, team members, and executives --- those who are most plugged-in, are also the most hands off.Let’s see how
  • Sam Snead was known as having a “perfect swing.” He said the best grip for a long golf shot as the same as holding a baby bird in your hand.
  • Our future, I’m seeing with education and I bet you’re seeing it in your settings.
  • In the new book I draw from 10 companies, including: Atlyassian, Badgeville, Coffee and Power, Elance, Intuit, Industrial Mold, Polycom and Salesforce.com (looking for more)
  • For now we will go with the basics:Plugged-In is about how we mix together people, technology, and organizational process 3 Dimensions – PTO 3Practices
  • You’re already doing the first one – you’ve stopped and shown up here.
  • You’re already doing the first one – you’ve stopped and shown up here. Stop-look-listen = recognitionLooking and Listening – think After Action Review – plan to stop and consider your options across each of the three dimensions. Make it a standard practice rather than a “post mortem”
  • How engaging is this?
  • Think of mixing as negotiating and you’ll get most of the idea. You have stakeholders, you have issues, and you have outcomes – if you put a product or service together in a way that would get agreement in a negotiation I expect you’ll have success.… or think about it like a chocolate chip cookie
  • Just like these ingredients on their own don’t make a chocolate chip cookiehttp://www.flickr.com/photos/14657061@N00/5606687561/sizes/m/in/photostream/
  • Telecommuting
  • Sharing is what we’re doing right now. Sharing a work in progress and hoping for your support. Your sharing of your own insightsSharing is basically about getting other people on board, playing by the same rules, helping
  • Rather than simply sharing the ideas of today’s presentations back in your organization, try facilitating a meeting where your team takes an idea and puts it to work via a change across your human, technical, and organizational resources – build a system. Greater engagement with your employees and partners, greater flexibility will result.
  • Please be in touch. I would love to hear more examples of how your organizations lead by letting go
