    S5E10: OKRs, Outcome Management and Neurosocial Leadership - with Sebastian Morgner from MLI

    S5E10: OKRs, Outcome Management and Neurosocial Leadership - with Sebastian Morgner from MLI

    "So is it a culture where conflicts are avoided or where hierarchy solves conflicts? Because, hierarchy is always right and other people have to accept that? Or is it a culture where conflicts are seen as a creative source, as a source of creativity, of discussion, different viewpoints and people like to have dialogues about the best possible perspective? All that together, often unseen, is what social dynamics are about. Modern leadership has to understand and know about the social dynamics and all this unconscious bias in groups if you really want to become successful." - Sebastian Morgner, MLI.



    With today’s guest Sebastian Morgner we talk about neurosocial leadership, giving insights into what neurosocial leadership actually is and why it is important - especially right now in this VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, ambiguous) environment. He also shares how leaders should approach this topic by taking into consideration the different personalities, communication styles and experience of each team member.

    We also dicuss how social dynamics connect to outcome-based thinking and OKRs. According to Sebastian, having a tangible and inspiring vision in a company with clear goals and responsibilities is one part of successful strategy implementation. The other part, however, is taking the time and space to actually reflect and discuss whether the team is on the right way, what the obstacles are and what they have learned in the past weeks or months. This is only possible if there’s psychological safety in the team, where responsibilities are clearly distributed and where the management team is open for feedback.

    Lastly, we touch on how enterprise leaders can use social dynamics to influence the shift of a company culture toward a more outcome-based thinking. The retrospective in the OKR process is mentioned to be a very valuable tool for leaders to achieve this but leaders also need to make sure that the politics and reporting lines in the organization don’t block cross-functional goals.



    Sebastian Morgner is Managing Director of the MLI Leadership Institute in Munich. He advises leadership teams of global companies on digital transformation, coaches executives and accompanies them in strategy implementation in Leadership Sprints based on OKR logic. Sebastian is the author of the book "Expedition Future - how you can use chance to master uncertainty and complexity". He was a pioneer in digitalization and has built seven different business units during his career. He is a certified mental coach and keynote speaker (GSA).

    S5E9: OKRs and Outcomes: Tools for de-risking uncertainty - with Jeff Gothelf

    OKRs are a simple concept but incredibly powerful because what it does is, it starts to move an organization towards better agility, collaboration, more customer centricity, more humility…creating the kind of culture and ways of working that tend to be more successful today. - Jeff Gothelf

    In today’s episode “OKRs and Outcomes: Tools for de-risking uncertainty” we talk with Jeff Gothelf about why are OKRs such a fundamental tool for all organizations facing uncertainty, how do you start “doing OKRs’ in huge enterprise to ensure the required culture change and finally, why OKRs are such a simple but challenging tool to implement successfully. 

    Finally, we’re talking about Jeff’s upcoming book - which is an OKR employee handbook, a practical guide for everyone in an organization no matter the department they are in.



    Jeff Gothelf helps organizations build better products and executives build the cultures that build better products. He is the co-author of the award-winning book Lean UX and the Harvard Business Review Press book Sense & Respond as well as the self-published Lean vs Agile vs Design Thinking and Forever Employable.

    Survival in the banking industry requires change. Currently, 70% of projects fail, making it evident that success lies not with big, renowned banks but with those that adapt swiftly to customer needs.

    In addition, we touch on the radical changes banks need to undergo and how to make those change long-lastin, by ensuring that everyone comprehends the purpose and goals behind the transformation. By this, projects shift from 70% failure  to 70% success rates.

    Furthermore, we explore how OKRs can enhance customer focus and their implementation in new product/service development within the banking industry and how finance leaders can successfully work with OKRs.

    S5E7: Decision making - the unseen critical lever in Agile transformation at scale - with Dr. Erik Lenhard from BCG

    S5E7: Decision making - the unseen critical lever in Agile transformation at scale - with Dr. Erik Lenhard from BCG

    “I see OKRs as something that is probably overhyped. For me, however, it is most important that organizations understand the principles and the rational behind OKRs. What is really meant by that and not only the grammar but really the thinking and the value that comes by Outcomes.” - Dr. Erik Lenhard



    With today’s guest Dr. Erik Lenhard we talk about the 3 dimensions of agile transformation: New structures, New ways of working and New ways of decision making. He shares why the principles of agile working are becoming even more important and why they need to be demystified. Agile transformations do not only take time and require new leadership approaches, but above all entail a cultural change.



    We also discuss why it is non-negotiable to define the “WHY” for a successful transformation. Leaders need to make sure why a change is necessary, how the Outcome of the change is going to be measured and where the journey leads the organization. At the same time, not only leaders need to communicate and lead the change, but need to change their leadership styles as well. A survey conducted by BCG with over 10.000 managers states that 67% are not happy with their decision power.



    Dr. Erik Lenhard is Partner and Director in the Munich Office of the Boston Consulting Group (BCG), member of the Technology Advantage and part of the leadership team for the Global and European Agile and Software business. Together with a colleague he is leading BCG's Agile at Scale business in Europe, having supported more than 25 organizations across industries in their agile journey.



    He joined BCG in 2012 and has more than 15 years experience in agile methods, large scale agile transformation and major aspects related to Enterprise Agility. Prior to working at BCG, Erik was heading the Management Information Department at Kabel Deutschland and worked as Manager at Solon Management Consulting. He earned a PhD in National Economics and a Diploma in Business Computer Science from the Technical University of Darmstadt and the London School of Economics. Moreover, he is a certified Scrum Master, Product Owner, Agile Coach as well as SAFe certified.
