A Time to Ask Questions and Engage
Discover the Power of Self-Management
This full-day MasterClass in Organizational Self-Management covers the following elements: 1) Principles, Practices & Foundations, 2) Commitments, Trust & Communication, and 3) Management, Culture & Conflict.
Self-Management Principles are the foundation for individual, team and organizational action. They are the rules of engagement by which all activity takes place and by which each self-managed colleague interacts with his or her peers. The purpose is to insure that colleagues have a comprehensive and clear understanding and appreciation for self-management principles.
Commitment Keeping is a critical self-management skill. There is actual history and research around the concept of commitment keeping. Commitments are affirmative speech acts. Commitments have structure. Commitments have a lifecycle. Commitments are one of the most misunderstood and dysfunctional concepts in the life of most organizations. A major problem in many (if not most) organizations is that people are sloppy about the way they make and fulfill commitments, resulting in suboptimal levels of trust, frustration and disappointment. Trust flows from proven integrity, which flows from effective commitment keeping and communication. Participants will learn how to expertly form and frame the language of commitment.
Management, Culture, and Conflict. People are interested in becoming self-managers at work. What does that mean? What is management? Participants will explore this concept together in a fast, gamified simulation conclusively demonstrating that everyone is a manager already—while some organizations are acknowledging that by adopting transformative organizational self-management. Participants also develop a deeper understanding of, and appreciation for, the viral forces of culture and conflict.
During the course of this MasterClass, participants create draft peer agreements that serve as the infrastructure of organizational self-management in place of expensive and burdensome bureaucracy.
Everyone is a manager in his or her own personal life. Self-management simply acknowledges that fact and applies it to life in organizations.
