Wanted: suggestions for new Bucket list pioneers
We are always curious to discover potential pioneers for our Bucket list. Do you have suggestions for us? If so, please share them with us, and tell us why you think this pioneer should be added to the list.
Suggestions for the bucket list? No, I'd say:
Stop collecting 'bucket-list'-beads, and
focus on developing a flexible way how any company can make its own necklace or in other words how it can work its way from the no longer working current situation to its own dreamed future and beyond.
Hi, sure, We are already implementing most of the organizational principles that you mention as the new ways to organize, here are some examples:
- self managed teams,
- leaders as servants but still leaders
- strategy work done by the employees and leaders together
- full ability and trust in any employee to make any decision needed to deliver what the customer needs
- balance between work and private life is focused
One big difference between us and others is that we have done it for a long time and do it fully i.e. not just on paper. We have also some experience in how you have to be able to adopt to other organizations where the hierarchy still is norm i.e. where they "want to talk to the boss".
Also one lessons learned is that in many countries legislation makes it hard to implement an organization where you trust the employee and leaders are not monitoring. You have to find ways around it.

How many times have you joined an online session with shitty audio? Or hideous video quality that makes you want to leave instantly? The answer probably is "way too often". Especially now, while most of us are working remotely. To solve that familiar frustration, I will share 5 quick, easy and inexpensive steps to upgrade your setup. We did it - and I can tell you - it makes all the difference in the world.
As part of our collaboration with Haier - one of the world's most pioneering companies - we research and share how they work. Recently, we chatted with leaders of the company, including Zhang Ruimin (CEO of Haier), Kevin Nolan (CEO of GE Appliances - the US part of Haier) and Yannick Fierling (CEO of Haier Europe). In this post, we share the recordings.
