What is a magnetic culture?
The boss as a superman or superwoman does not fit in today. The manager cannot handle the role of the problem solver, the conflict manager, or like a parent guide the organization’s employees in the right direction. It probably never worked that great, but today it is more obvious than before that it does not work at all. The digital revolution makes it impossible to keep that kind of leadership.
If you hold onto the idea of yourself as the “super boss” the risk is that others will perceive you as the significantly slower and weaker version of Clark Kent.
How do you manage the challenges of the digital revolution?
- Managing the consequences of far-reaching decentralization of decisions and powers, but at the same time ensures that deviations are avoided.
- That self-organized teams become effective with a culture that strengthens the team’s efficiency?
- A new approach in the teams that means that everyone must understand that they actually do not have a manager anymore.
- That the management itself adjusts its way of working to the consequences of digitalization?
