8. August 2018

0 Kommentare

This article – originally in German Language on LinkedIn received already more than 9000 views, 400 likes and about 70 valuable comments and more than 1000 re-shares (yes I am a bit proud) Sebastian Kolberg kindly provided the translation here:

  • Why is change so difficult?
  • How can an organization meet the challenges of the digital age?
  • What can I contribute to this?

Not a few ask themselves these questions. Here are some personal thoughts and the hope to encourage you to swim against the current more often!

No, this is not a call to revolution, but a well-intentioned inspiration,

to start with yourself,

no matter if you are a board member, team leader or employee.

Everyone can change the world[…]

Transformation

..only happens, once great people make it happen. Today in the digital age, we can learn from each other, share our best practices and support us with appreciation – a very needed part of „resilience“ – as changing organizations, foremost needs endurance. In this post I will share the names of such great people (who are active on one of the best learning channels: #Twitter)

appreciation is like a muscle, that needs to be trained

Sharing their names can also be seen as my personal #appreciation to them, as they are giving me strength, knowledge and inspiration to constantly go on. […]

Maturity Glossary – please participate

We use words to communicate- each one of us has it’s own network of thoughts about words. Specially in change initiatives, I find it highly relevant, to build a common understanding of the words used.

Introduction to LinkedIn Business Networking

12. Juni 2018

0 Kommentare

I use LinkedIn as my professional Business Networking Platform – since May 2011. In 2016 I started various tests, where I could find more value in this platform, other than „just being there“ and getting mails from people selling something, headhunters or advertisements (back than).

Maybe it helps you too, to get started or to enhance the value of your profile.


Today I have more than 3800 contacts and 4400 followers, my articles reached a total of about 50k viewers – far away from being a „real influencer“ but good enough to share some experience.

#Invitation to re-focus

12. Mai 2018

0 Kommentare

In Life we focus on the obvious, the „sharp“ things, the ones we can describe, have a name for, we can measure.
Like in #technology this (reduced) view on the measurable/improvable stuff might be a bad mistake?
What if we look what is behind, what is around and in between?
I have the feeling, that we focus too much on the „dead“ stuff – making us become like machines, instead of widening our views, get blurry, dive into feelings, more holistic observing with more than our „typical“ senses.

This is an invitation to re-focus … along those photos. Try to look at the pictures in between, where I removed the „topic“ to expose you to the „space in between“ -maybe that is what really counts, what makes live human…

The best hiking boots won’t take HR to Mars!

April 14th 2018 – translation of  this post by Sebastian Kolberg

The DGFP invites you to think about the future of HR in a blog parade. I am happy to participate in the discussion as a basis for the conference on 3-4 May, which will take place in parallel – and in conjunction with re:publica.

DGFPc18 Blogparade

 

The core question is: Why should someone take HR on a mission to Mars? A beautiful image that makes the digital transformation and the necessary „DenkRaumErweiterung“ (means: „Think beyond the common frame“) clear. My provocative thesis:

 

The best hiking boots don’t take HR to Mars!

What a great leading change summary from Celine Schillinger (Twitter: @CelineSchill) in her #WeNeedSocial Blog – covering the Top Ten Change enablers:

One Human at a Time
  1. Change is a journey, not a destination
  2. Change is done with people, not to people
  3. Change management is not project management
  4. Organizations often address change at the wrong level
  5. The system strikes back
  6. It’s really hard (but necessary) to unlearn
  7. Resist the temptation to change others
  8. Always look forward
  9. Organizations are living systems, not machines
  10. To change a culture, social media is a superpower

I can not agree more and highly recommend reading and SHARING this valuable post in your networks!

GUIDE role sketch note

2. Februar 2018

0 Kommentare

We are educating about 1.000 colleagues to become GUIDEs for our current (digital) Transformation project.

2012, when we started the first GUIDE network to implement Enterprise Social Media, it took us quite some effort to build trust for this new role and find about 400 colleagues worldwide. Seems like the reputation is still echoing… this time with an updated concept, we have more than 2.000 nominees already.

Two weeks ago, we started our first of 15 regional GUIDE education camps – 5 days each.

For many it is still a challenge, not to just learn tools, but soft skills, change methods and all about networking, WOL and values based collaboration. […]

Here is a SWAY presentation with an overview and first details about our journey. This should also answer some questions on how to deal with todays demands in complexity, constantly changing frame conditions („evergreen“) and driving a diversity respecting adoption:

Twitter for beginners – an introduction

TWITTER ?

27.12.2017 – translation of my post from 2015 translated by Sebastian Kolberg

What is Twitter? What’s that good for? How does that work? …. “But I don’t want to tell you everything about myself… that doesn’t matter anyway… it’s just nonsense… I can’t do anything with it…” > Questions and sentences I come across very often.

I myself have been watching Twitter for over a year before I registered there in February 2009. To my question at that time: „How does it work?“ I got the answer: „You will only understand this when you have written 1000 tweets“ – at that time an unimaginable number – or period of time.

Currently I have written more than 14300 messages, shared more than 1400 pictures and am quite happy about more than 3200 followers.

Twitter will soon be 12 years old – that’s why I would like to give a short overview or an introduction to Twitter in this article: (which often happens verbally – but the topic can’t be explained in a few minutes, making it more efficient and sustainable here in a blog post)
