You can’t deny that SEO – both as a practice and as an industry – has gotten a bad rap over the past few years. In fact, some would say that SEO has never had a great reputation, even in its heyday. I think there has always been this idea that somehow SEO is just […]

The Secret To Self-Management And Organizational Success

by Tom Cuthbert @ Blog - Tom Cuthbert

At its core, business is simple. It is about serving others. People make it complicated. Re-focus on the basics: serving your employees, customers, and communities then abundance will follow.

Imagine if . . .

  • Everything your employees did had meaning and purpose for them and your organization.
  • Employees always knew what to do and where to focus their efforts because of common purpose.
  • Employees had simple, understandable rules to guide them towards common purpose.

How much more engaged and productive would they be? How much more successful would your organization be?

No Purpose, No Will

I recently visited Oxford Castle in England where I experienced the Crank Machine, a tool of physical and psychological punishment utilized in the 19thcentury prison system.

As the name implies, the Crank Machine has a handle which can be turned or “cranked.” The hardship: this particular handle is connected to nothing but pulleys and brakes, making the turning of it more difficult. Think about the toughest spinning class you ever attended and then some. With a stationary bike you don’t go anywhere, but you can achieve an effective and balanced workout. The Crank Machine was tied to nothing productive. As a form of punishment, prisoners were compelled to turn it up to 15,000 times a day in their jail cell.

The Crank Machine’s sole purpose was to break the will of prisoners – to extinguish their purpose and engagement in life.

Stop Breaking The Will Of Your Employees

Do you hold weekly business update meetings no one finds valuable, but fail to rework them for the benefit of attendees? Have you asked for such meeting feedback?

Do you request weekly work updates from your employees? Or worse, daily updates? While your intentions may be good and have business value, do your employees perceive the reports as simply a way to make sure they are working when not supervised?

While my Crank Machine example is admittedly extreme, modern organizational tasks perceived to have little or no value can have the same, negative impact on employees. The very act of doing such work could demotivate and punish someone wanting to make a difference in your organization.

Studies show nothing is more disengaging than doing work without perceived value, even if you are paid well for it.

So, how do you eliminate wasteful, non-value added work in your organization and benefit from deeply engaged, self-managed employees? Keep your business simple, maintain common organizational purpose and follow the ants.

Let The Ants Lead

Did you know highly organized ant colonies – sometimes numbering in the billions – have no leadership? Despite this, ant colony organization is so advanced, effective and purpose-driven that notable companies like Southwest AirlinesAir Liquide and others have used their pattern of behavior to solve complex business challenges.

Ants are self-managed. They use triggers and interactions in their local environments to independently guide their work decisions. This is possible because all ants embrace a common purpose and follow a few, simple rules.

When building their nests, researchers discovered three, main rules ants consistently follow:

  • They picked up grains at a constant rate, approximately two grains per minute
  • They dropped them near other grains, forming a pillar
  • They choose grains previously handled by other ants

It can be deduced from the research that ants self-manage themselves based on the rhythms and connections in their environment. In a human equivalent, these connections could be the rate others are working nearby and what is seen/heard in their area. Providing there is common purpose for every person involved in the task, no defined leadership is needed to accomplish it. Successful examples of this self-managed model can be found in thriving organizations like L.W. Gore & AssociatesZapposThe Morning Star Company and Treehouse.

Discover Your Organizational Purpose

To create an environment which fosters a high level of self-management and engagement, employees must be aligned under a common organizational purpose. A simple way of discovering this purpose would be to ask the following questions:

  • Why does my organization exist?
  • Why was it started in the first place?

By flipping the questions around, you can gain a powerful new perspective on your common organizational purpose:

  • What would happen if my organization disappeared today?
  • Would it be missed?
  • Would my customers struggle? How?
  • Would my market struggle? How?
  • Would life go on without missing a beat?

By answering these questions and having your employees do so, too, you can gain useful insights into what is really valuable work – that which serves your employees, customers and community – and what is simply wasting time and disengaging your workforce.

Let your organization evolve from employees with a common purpose. Go back to the reason your organization exists in the first place – its purpose – and focus only on work which feeds that purpose.

How far off is your organization from this model? Please let me know in the comments area below.

I've been looking for some rules on the Internet, but they seem to differ. The journal the article is going to be published in doesn't seem to have any prescribed rules either, I'm afraid. Let me list a few typical examples, each using the three tenses. Could you possibly choose the right ones and, perhaps, briefly explain your choice? I'll give my own opinions below.

Signs You're CEO Material

by Tom Cuthbert @ Blog - Tom Cuthbert

Are CEOs born or made? According to entrepreneur-turned-top venture capitalist Ben Horowitz, most of the tricky skills needed to excel are drummed into leaders through years of experience.

Likening critical CEO capabilities, such as giving difficult feedback, to learning the unnatural motion of lifting your back foot first in boxing, he claims "it generally takes years for a founder to develop the CEO skill set." In short, Horowitz insists CEOs are made, not born.

But just because becoming an exceptional leader takes a whole lot of practice, it doesn't mean everyone can become a CEO through hard work. While you invite disappointment if you believe some people are simply naturals at the job, you invite years of wasted effort if you don't also acknowledge that certain fundamental mindsets are a prerequisite for getting started on this long path of learning.

What are they? Experts suggest you need to nail these basics before you can even start to think of yourself as potential CEO material.

1. You're curious and a constant learner.

The first tip-off that a commitment to continual self-improvement is key to leadership success is the fact that nearly every business icon you can think of--from Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to Oprah Winfrey--describes him- or herself as a perpetual learner. But if you want more quantitative backing for this idea, it exists too.

According to The New York Times, research shows that you're more likely to reach the top of an organization if you've had a variety of roles, from finance to marketing, rather than hunkered down and built expertise in just one department where you felt comfortable.

"Evidence suggests that success in the business world isn't just about brain power or climbing a linear path to the top, but about accumulating diverse skills and showing an ability to learn about fields outside one's comfort zone," writes the paper's Neil Irwin.

2. You're willing to feel like you're the dumbest person in the room.

Are CEOs smart? Sure, running a company takes a certain degree of intelligence. But for top leaders, the ability to gather and listen to exceptional brains is more important than personal mental horsepower. Great leadership involves enough humility to respect others' gifts and enough confidence to reveal your own limitations and accept their help.

Or as entrepreneur Kevin Johnson cleverly put it, you need to be OK with sometimes feeling like you're the dumbest person in the room. "The average person is intimidated by smart people ... If given a choice to spend a week quarantined with really smart people or people of average intelligence, the average Jane would choose people of average intelligence," he writes.

If you're CEO material, however, you'll put learning and results before ego and surround yourself with the truly brilliant. It's why Johnson is always looking to make a super smart friend. "They make me feel inadequate and sometimes just really stupid, but I am OK with that, because I know that I learn so much from them," he explains.

3. You can know a dream is crazy, but chase it anyway.

How does Elon Musk, leader of some of the world's most long-shot ventures, deal with risk? He doesn't ignore it. In fact, he recently told an interviewer that he's absolutely terrified by the huge risks inherent in pursuing borderline insane projects such as Mars colonization. "I feel fear quite strongly," he reported.

But faced with terrible odds, he doesn't resort to irrational optimism. He acknowledges the likelihood of failure and accurately assesses the long list of risks he's facing, but then he proceeds anyway. "When starting SpaceX, I thought the odds of success were less than 10 percent, and I just accepted that actually probably I would just lose everything. But that maybe we would make some progress," he continued.

This odd coupling of open-eyed risk assessment and a willingness to dare anyway is a hallmark of great CEOs, according to Robert Scoble, who studies CEOs for Rackspace. The ideal CEO, he wrote on Quora, is "assured of the achievability of long-term goals yet nervous about the attainability of near-term milestones. This schizophrenic mindset ensures that an entrepreneur maintains an unyielding belief in the manifestation of their vision while never taking for granted the execution of their startup's most basic tasks."

4. You tend to get obsessed.

Some call this quality passion. Others refer to it as focus. But whatever term you want to use, being a great CEO requires the ability (if not an inborn compulsion) to latch onto interesting questions or problems, shut out distractions, and work relentlessly until you have a solution.

As a young programmer, Bill Gates, for instance, was famed for working at his keyboard until he nodded off, still sitting up. When he woke, he simply looked up, oriented himself for a few seconds, and began working away again. GoPro CEO Nick Woodman pursued his dream of a better surf video obsessively, through months of intense experimentation.

Perhaps Dropbox founder Drew Houston described this quality best, using the metaphor of a tennis ball. "The tennis ball is about finding the thing you're obsessed with," he said. "The most successful people and successful entrepreneurs I know are all obsessed with solving a problem that really matters to them. I use the tennis ball for that idea because of my dog, who gets this crazy, obsessed look on her face when you throw the ball for her."

Do you get a crazy look in your eye when you spot a problem in need of solving?

5. You can tell a captivating story.

You want to run a business, not write a hit TV show, so why is the ability to tell a great story so important to success as a CEO? Because humans are renowned for their imperviousness to logic (just look at basically any political discussion, if you need proof). If you want to change minds and convince people to follow you, you're going to need to appeal to emotion. And nothing arouses our emotions as much as a great tale.

"CEOs have to deal with conflicting interest groups," said Scoble. "Customers often want something investors don't. So a good CEO is really great at convincing other people to get on board, even at changing people's opinions."
