One Form of Regenerative Energy: The Kaizen Feedback

Posted on Sunday, Dec 9th 2018

By Guest Author Marylene Delbourg-Delphis

We all know about the natural tendency of systems toward their degradation. It’s called entropy. In her new book, Everybody Wants to Love Their Job: Rebuilding Trust and Culture, Marylene Delbourg-Delphis discusses the various ways organizations can fight that entropy, and instead, generate the negative entropy that Nobel laureate Erwin Schrodinger ended up naming “negentropy.” Thwarting entropy ultimately means breeding creative energy within the company non-stop by nurturing an environment that doesn’t inhibit imagination from the get-go and paying attention to all the sources of regenerative energy. What Delbourg-Delphis calls “kaizen feedback” is one of them. >>>

Innovation and disruption: Forces Turned on and off by human beings

Posted on Sunday, Dec 2nd 2018

By Guest Author Marylene Delbourg-Delphis

In her new book, Everybody Wants to Love Their Job: Rebuilding Trust and CultureMarylene Delbourg-Delphis reflects on the demise and death of once-giants.

Companies either fail or succeed. It’s just a simple truth. There were certainly plenty of causes for the decline and fall of the Roman Empire, but the primary one, according to the famous 18th century historian Edward Gibbon, was the gradual disappearance of its citizens’ civic virtues. Similarly, the main causes of companies’ annihilation could very well be human. Employees have stopped being citizens of their company and fighting for it. They behave. They aren’t causing problems or generating liabilities. They’ve just given up on the idea that their voice matters. >>>

Hiring for Innovation? Where do people “who have done it before” best fit in?

Posted on Sunday, Nov 25th 2018

By Guest Author Marylene Delbourg-Delphis

In her new book, Everybody Wants to Love Their Job: Rebuilding Trust and Culture, Marylene Delbourg-Delphis draws from her extensive experience as a serial CEO, executive consultant, and board member to assesses the cons and pros of hiring people who “have done it before.”

Companies don’t Innovate, People do… So, Watch how you Hire!

Posted on Saturday, Nov 17th 2018

By Guest Author Marylene Delbourg-Delphis

Almost every company pledges to value innovation, a topic that lends itself to all sorts of grand planning strategies and methodologies as well as lyrical musings. Yet to actually be able to deliver on innovation goals, organizations must often get back to earth, i.e. look closely at the multiple aspects of the management of the company’s human infrastructure, and focus on the most foundational of them: the way we hire. In her new book, Everybody Wants to Love Their Job: Rebuilding Trust and Culture, Marylene Delbourg-Delphis invites executives to pay attention to their company’s recruiting practices—and more specifically to two of the key principles that prepare companies for continuous inventiveness, hiring employees for their potential rather than only their current skills, and hiring people for the company as a whole rather than for a manager.  >>>
