Corporate Rebels Listed Among Top 30 Emergent Management Thinkers
Last week we received some amazing news. We’ve been listed on the Thinkers50 Radar list of 2018. This “Radar” lists “the 30 management thinkers most likely to shape the future of how organizations are managed and led”.
We are extremely proud that the Corporate Rebels movement has been recognized with this prestigious award.
To make the world a better place
The organization behind this list is Thinkers50. Its aim is “To provide access to innovative ideas with the power to make the world a better place”. A few months ago we were nominated for their Breakthrough Idea Award and invited to their Award Gala in London.
We are very happy to be recognized, again by Thinkers50, this time among the top 30 emergent management thinkers. Once again, this recognition is a boost for the worldwide Rebels movement. It’s for all of us who are actively supporting the transformation to better workplaces.
A global, diverse list
The official press release reads: “'The Radar list is keenly anticipated', says Thinkers50 co-founder Des Dearlove. 'It is an early warning system to alert managers about the people who are doing exciting and important work. We hope to see many of them on future Thinkers50 rankings of the world’s leading management thinkers.'
The Thinkers50 Radar list is more global than ever before. Nationalities represented include the Netherlands, South Africa, America, India, China, Norway, Canada, and the UK. In 2018, for the second time, the Radar includes more women than men. The rise in influential women thinkers is also notable on the Thinkers50 ranking where the number of women thinkers has grown rapidly over recent years.”
Being named on this list is a recognition for all the Corporate Rebels out there fighting for better workplaces.

We recently held a brainstorming session at our office for the newest on-demand course for the Academy—one about the concept of Psychological Safety. During the session, we discussed how one of the things you can do to create psychological safety is to embrace failure instead of avoiding it. But this is hard because failing is not fun. It absolutely sucks. Therefore, it is better not to celebrate the failure itself but rather celebrate the lessons learned from it.
How many times have you heard of companies coaching candidates for ‘senior teams’, ‘top talent’ and ‘future leaders? That is, the ‘special ones’ who are worth coaching attention! Sure, there will be talent brewing who, with good coaching, will go from ‘potentially great’ to ‘actually great’. And some brilliant coaches do great work with senior teams. However, does a ‘coaching for senior leaders’ paradigm pass scrutiny, given how organisations are changing? Or is the potential of other staff hamstrung by a short-sighted view of who is worth investing in?
So, we write a monthly column for MT/Sprout, a Dutch media platform. Last month, we wrote about how our agendas are always packed full with meetings. We followed that with this month's column about how replacing all these meetings with e-mail is not a good alternative. Why? Because there is a big chance you will waste even more time and money. Allow me to explain.
