    S3 Ep. 18 Lisa Gill – Looking Beyond Teal

    Lisa Gill is an organisational self-management coach and trainer with Tuff Leadership Training. She was included in the Thinkers50 Radar 2020 for her work with self-managing teams. Lisa is also the host of the Leadermorphosis podcast, for which she has interviewed thought leaders and practitioners from all over the world about the future of work, and the author of 'Moose Heads on the Table: Stories About Self-Managing Organisations from Sweden' (2020). 

     

    Tune in to this episode as we discuss why the way we are working is not working. We reflect over new ways of working, the post-agile era of interrogating the ‘what’, the power of peer-led movements, some great new technologies that are emerging, and why we can’t ust solve things by systems or processes.

    S3 Ep. 15 Phoebe Tickell – Growing Institutional Imagination Capacity and Collective Intelligence in a Complex World

    S3 Ep. 15 Phoebe Tickell – Growing Institutional Imagination Capacity and Collective Intelligence in a Complex World

    Phoebe Tickell is a biologist and systems thinker developing methodologies and approaches  suited for a better world. She is an innovator with a background in the biological sciences, technology, social entrepreneurship and systems design. She left the scientific academy with the knowledge that an understanding of complex systems could be applied to real world pressing issues and that bridges were needed to stretch from theory to practice. 

    She works across multiple societal contexts applying a complexity and systems thinking lens and has worked in organisational design, advised government, the education sector and the food and farming sector. She is a co-founder of the DGov Foundation – a community of distributed governance practitioners – and Member of Enspiral, a community that innovates in decentralising power and developing decentralised tools and technologies to do so. She also created Moral Imaginations in 2020 to push the frontier of research and implementation of research-backed collective imagination exercises and training to inspire change and find new solutions in an era of unprecedented disruption and potential for transformation.

    It’s clear that society needs direction when it comes to change, and in today’s episode we explore how imagination gives us the ability to think beyond traditional frames. Join us as we delve into training a new breed of activists, mapping unintended consequences, how to coordinate at a massive scale – and accounting for future generations with the choices that we make.  

     

    A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/phoebe-tickell/

     

    Key highlights we discussed:

    > Why imagination has become central to building the future

    > The moral elements of new ways of organising

    > How diverse teams or communities can work from shared principles

    > Why we need to stay connected to our local communities

    > Why coordination is not ‘everything’ for DAOs

    S3 Ep. 13 Antoinette Weibel and Otti Vogt – The ‘Good’ and the ‘Bad’ organization: an ethics perspective

    S3 Ep. 13 Antoinette Weibel and Otti Vogt – The ‘Good’ and the ‘Bad’ organization: an ethics perspective

    Today we find out how to bridge philosophy, psychology and management science to understand how businesses can enable a "good society". We are joined by two experts in this field, Antoinette Weibel and Otti Vogt to find out what questions we need to be asking.

    Professor Dr. Antoinette Weibel is full professor for human resource management at the University of St. Gallen. She is President of the Executive Committee of the Institute for Systemic Management and Public Governance at the University of St.Gallen, and a member of the Executive Committee of the Institute for Media and Communications Management and the Institute for Business Ethics at the University of St.Gallen. Her current core project, ‘Good Organisations’, asks how organisations can become better members of society. 

    Otti is a disruptive thought leader with over 20 years experience in implementing strategic business change in multi-cultural, complex businesses and in crafting human-centric learning organisations. As COO and Chief Transformation officer in ING, he was until recently accountable for ING’s global digital transformation programme and continuous optimisation of operational service performance for more than 20m customers worldwide. He is also a certified leadership coach, associate of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) and was recently named Top 20 Global Thought Leader on Agile. 

    Tune in to this episode as we explore the power of framing the right questions, how we can enable each others’ flourishing, the role of high quality relationships and active reflection – and why no singular idea will solve everything. 

     

    A full transcript of the episode can be found on our website: https://boundaryless.io/podcast/antoinette-weibel-and-otti-vogt/ 

     

    Key highlights we discussed:

    > The impact of plurality and multiculturalism

    > The power of sociality and facilitating higher quality relationships
