#34 - Unbossing in heavy regulated businesses, Nina Bufi
Nina is a biomedical engineer currently working as eHealth projects director at the French Ministry of Health. She's also the driving source behind "Open Opal", the French community for Teal Organization. No wonder she is so good in explaining what this new organization model is all about. The three main topics we discuss are:
1. concrete examples of unbossing in heavy regulated healthcare businesses.
2. What is a company purpose, and is the purpose owned by the leader?
3. Can every organization evolve and how do you start?
#33 - How to recruit and sustain an unbossed team? Maura Declercq
Maura is a force of nature and owner of international recruitment agency STAFF Europe Recruitment & Consulting specialized in Executive Search.
In this podcast, she delivers us the perfect playbook on how to build - and sustain! - the Unbossed Team of the future:
1. As a CEO/Founder, get your ego out of the way!
2. Hire for mindset, passion, integrity first and foremost.
3. Be authentic and walk your talk. Nothing can be more disappointing than paying only lip-service to your proclaimed company culture and not following through when it counted.
#32 - 7 years of Unbossing in Vietnam, Duc HA DUO & Nam Phuong NGUYEN LUONGNG
Since 2014, the Vietnamese-French company Officience is on a journey to reinvent itself from a typical command-and-control organization with management by objectives, executive boards and steering committees to an unbossed organization with clusters, self-organized salary processes and liquified internal communication. Next to the company story, Duc explains in detail how he developed from a traditional CEO to an unbossed leader. And maybe even more interesting is to listen and learn from Nam Phuong who's sharing her experience as employee in this journey.
#31 - The PowerForAll episode, Julie Battilana
This episode listens like an amphetamine bom full of passion. Julie takes us on an insightful journey on what power is, how it’s gained and lost, and how it can be used for good. This episode made us rethink some of our most basic assumptions about influence.
Moreover, if this episode inspires you, then you should definitely read Julie's book Power, for All. I loved how Julie and her colleague Tiziana Casciaro analyse and explain power by waving together insights from world-class research, old greek philosophers and remarkable real-life cases.
#30 - The passionate explorer, John Hagel III
In the" Tribe of Unbossers" John Hagel would be, just like Gary Hamel, an "elder". Meaning a wise man, a repository of huge cultural and philosophical knowledge and a transmitters of critical information for the leaders and organizations of the future. Regardless of his massive background and experience, he isn't stuck in the past. On the contrary, the central topic of this episode is the employee of the future: the passionate explorer. Those who want to have meaning-full impact in a specific area, those who see unexpected challenges as opportunities for having impact and those who connect with others to have more impact, faster. In John's study a staggering 86% of the US Workforce doesn't identify themselves at work with this definition. So yeah, John, Thomas and myself talk about what we can do to change this.
Fascinating insights, wonderful guests! Big thank you to all!
Looking forward to many other great episodes
