Being involved once more in a particular piece of survey, built by The Boston Consulting Group for its customers, and tested on different panels from HEC Business School. Always searching to shape the future, engaged since 50 years now, the famous consulting group conceived and held a great framework with different layers to grow a relevant model for new guidelines for leadership…We can, by the way, just imagine that leadership was in the past more dedicated to a specific “person” and then shifts to a collective movement, on the influence of collaborative sessions everywhere. Even is the spread has been done many years from now, on the Anglosaxon world, the dynamics from digital and tools ahead draw another picture of “work” and project building. The resume that was enlighted was “Why will leadership be different in the 21st century and what will it take to be a 21st century leader?” (if it’s still an individual matter more than a collective one). So?

The framework was built around a “navigation row”, with 4 poles like: Navigate, Empathize, Self-Correction and Win-Win. While past models celebrate things like “integrity, vision, intelligence, judgment, courage and drive”, it’s not enough for the next big pictures…The way we see risks is not the same we did, and the global uncertainty growing in the world, lead us to more flexibility. But that doesn’t mean not to be clear, because leadership is still a kind of example, that shows the way, with a clear course to follow.

SocialChangeLeadership

The social arena leads us to more “social” relations, and in the working environment that means to influence more than “manage” or use authority. Charism, experience or conviction are our best weapons to deal with negotiation and motivation. It supplies us more ability to forecast and embrace global uncertainty, through troubled periods. The shift from pyramid to project management leads us to rethink way of driving the change, with teams, empowering talents and guiding them more than ordering. We then develop a win-win method that grows the whole organization. It requires some underlined competences like: vision, intelligence but courage and judgment to be flexible and self-correcting, ongoing. Integrity, drive and tenacity will complete the panel of skills for success and garantee a strong footprint, mindset and influence for modern leaders.

A very interesting study/survey or tool to evaluate and frame the “how-to” for next generations, HR compliance and driving change with talents.

Interesting conference about social exploring all projects for both social and growth development in companies. Accurate and appropriate initiative for HEC business school, that has scheduled and organized the conference on its campus, with several main players from MNC’s.
Obviously a daily mindset I hope for huge companies, that want to “empower” their pyramide of business, and involve themselves by sending back wealth from richest markets to poorest targets, to give up with breakdown between rich and poor…in our final dream of “one world”. Giant building site, isn’t it?
Talking about project, resources saving, medecine equity, media involvement in taking care of desert zones, balancing between students, scientists, experts and executives, two days to make a kick-off for energies, social, resources threats in our planet.

For example, water…
Taking care for rain to come (if we stare at power of only nature in bringing water!), there’s lots of wasted water that stand to be used in an endless cycle. “Water is a local problem”, yes, but rain is everywhere…The main problem is how can we bring them from zones that are near water sources to ones that don’t have any or not really much?
Water can be a source of medical troubles too, not because of quality but underlining that it’s sometimes a rare resource, and too few is a real danger, for some populations.
Seas? well what do we stand to use water from seas, to generate human resources? WaterPyramide, good initiative for bottom of the pyramide people to provide water and energy with a huge plastic pyramide, that transform hot sun effects into  droplets by steam effect…. and then into water…Cute? The main problem from BOP markets, comes from price adaptation…Some say that “it’s not a problem of money, nor of public aids too”. But from production to end user consumer, it seems to be an ongoing value chain, adding costs…to consumer affordability. Freeness? look at the freeness model all around the world (web?), free creates value…Shoul water be free? it is, but no balanced supplied on each spot of the planet…Who has to pay for the pipes, the transportation? Should everybody has to move to “water supplied zones” only…?

…A sample in these amazing two days, for next steps, see further sessions and web site: http://www.socialbusinessconference.org

Good initiative of business school, corps and NGO Corporate Social Responsabilities mindsetting to work much better together, and formerly starting to cope with this serious threat, that could be the next economic war. Long life to such involvements and innovations.
