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.
I find his connections with networks and the human experience really interesting. Quote:
"Collectively we are smarter than any corporation. Learning through communities of practice and knowledge networks enables us to make collective sense. Over the years I have met many people in their 40’s or 50’s who suddenly find themselves without work. Most of them do not have a professional network beyond their organization where they may have worked for a decade or more. Once outside the company, they are adrift.
Being an active citizen-learner by connecting with others outside our everyday lives can expose us to a diversity of skills, knowledge, and perspectives. In a creative economy we are only as good as our networks. An effective network encourages us to keep learning. A good community of practice changes our practice. The more often we change, the better we get at it… We don’t need heroic leaders to create better ways of working. Anyone can exercise leadership by helping make the network smarter, more resilient, and able to make better decisions."
I am particularly drawn to "We don’t need heroic leaders to create better ways of working. Anyone can exercise leadership by helping make the network smarter, more resilient, and able to make better decisions." I like how he's reframing the emphasis of leadership from we need good leaders to lead us into better ways, to leadership can be working to improve a collective process. I think we probably need both of these.

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.
