Henry Mintzberg - Free minded speaker in an intimate conversation

A nice interview I finally get to listen to "Henry Mintzberg - Listening to his current views on management, rebalancing society and Agility". That was one of the keynote speakers at last year Agile Tour Montreal.

You might know Henry Mintzberg for is contributions on management, organizational configurations, or coordination with tasks.

I found many interesting perspectives in this interview conference. Some about the balance between government and the private sector.

Skin deep technologies

New technologies always closer to us. It is not the first time I see about those microchips implant. Just got me thinking, how fast would it be widespread.

Could we see those kinds of implant used to track people on a large construction site?

Could high-security site make that mandatory? 

It can check your health, so could tell your employer on drug, alcohol or other info!

How would you see that use in your context?

Many things need to be considered. Are there legislation that protects/limit usage of this new technologies! What is the governance?

What matter in team

Just came across this article in Inc. that I found interesting for a project team.

Nine points that have a positive impact on a team. You may already apply most of them.

- Listen carefully

- Show empathy

- Ask questions

- Encourage others to ask questions

- Empower your team

- Be a coach, not a problem solver

- Commend sincerely and specifically

- Make critical feedback constructive

- Show concern for the "person," not the "employee."

I found that the last five are the one that people have the most difficulty to put into practice.

Ethic in your team, in the management

I just came across an article about employees motivation New study shows what Bay Area employees want most at work. (Hint: It's not ping pong)

"one-third of the millennials surveyed — saying they would leave their current job if an employer reflected unethical or immoral behavior"

Is it just a local trend or general direction?

I think it is a more general tendency.
