Daca un strungar greseste, in cel mai rau caz va reface piesa, dar daca un coach greseste…

„Coach-ul este acela care te ajuta sa cresti, fie ca vorbim despre dezoltare profesionala, personala sau «tu cu tine»”

Nivelul ridicat de self-awareness este cel mai puternic indicator de succes, Martie 2015
Vorbim despre dezvoltarea de competenţe, despre cultura organizaţională, atunci când ne gândim la creşterea performanţei oamenilor (bineînţeles mai sunt şi altele ca: sisteme, proceduri etc). Şi apoi ne apucăm să căutăm furnizori de training şi coaching care să poată acoperi aceste „goluri”.
E bine şi aşa decât deloc. Doar că, aşa cum medicina de multe ori tratează simptomele şi nu cauza, vom bandaja rana, sperând să se vindece singură. Şi surpriză, în 99% dintre cazuri nu se întâmplă! Cauza este mult mai profundă şi mult mai greu de „rezolvat” decât printr-un plasture numit training de comunicare, să zicem.

Bad Organization? Bad Leader? Or Both?

bad“Banking giant Credit Suisse has just plead guilty to criminal wrongdoing. It plead guilty to enabling thousands of Americans who did business with the bank to hide their wealth. OK, now what? The bank will in fact be penalized: it will have to pay a penalty of $2.6 billion. Moreover its reputation will at least briefly be tarnished. But it is unlikely otherwise much to suffer, certainly over the long term. More to the point, the bank, the organization, is an abstraction. What does it even mean to say that a bank, an organization, has been punished, penalized?
Meantime the man who has lead Credit Suisse since 2007, Brady Dougan, goes unpunished. He is not penalized. To be sure, it’s likely he’s suffered some. It’s likely he has felt some shame, some embarrassment, some humiliation. But that’s it. Not only is he not legally penalized, he is not organizationally penalized. He remains in the wake of this outrage, this conviction of wrongdoing, the chief executive officer of Credit Suisse.
Let me be clear about this: unless and until people are clearly and publicly punished – legally and otherwise – we can count on the wrongdoing to continue. For whatever the nature of the legal infraction you can be sure about one thing: it was committed not by institutions but by individuals.”
