The rate of innovation in technology is accelerating exponentially, keeping pace with the rapid advances in the biosciences, materials science, and the internet. The opportunities to build a better-educated, healthier, greener world through business innovation and entrepreneurship are numerous and incredibly exciting. They demand a new kind of organization!
Sertl will show how organizations have evolved, from the 1850’s on, to reflect the technologies, social environments, and management philosophies of their times. The type of organization poised to be able to adapt at the rate of change required has been given the name Transorganization.
Sertl will share characteristics of a Transorganization such as how they are leading the charge, constantly transforming themselves to respond to opportunities and the tsunami of change around them. Transorganization demonstrate absolute respect for each employee and every customer, and structurally design the organization to constantly reevaluate those relationships and improve them. The Transorganization consciously identifies and shapes its soul-the identity and values that define it and everything that it does.
The Transorganization demands leadership from every employee, top to bottom and side to side. The type of leadership able to create value at the rate of change is referred to as a Transleader. Transleaders takes responsibility for his or her own contribution and the success of the organization as a whole. They exercise power by sharing it, and understand that the soul of the organization is the aggregate of the souls of each individual within it.
Transleader look at themselves through a six-dimensional prism, combining intellect, spirituality, health and wellness, finances, relationships, and emotional well-being. They are creative and intuitive, making connections that others don’t, and are confident to make decisions based on inadequate information.
Jennifer Sertl – Speaker at Sibos
Tuesday afternoon’s session, “The Future of Organizations”, began with a slide show. The final caption, “What is your purpose?” lingered on the screen as M J Petroni took to the stage. “If we’re talking about innovation, we have to look at our culture, “ said Petroni. But first, there was time for a story. Jennifer Sertl told one about a lion and an antelope. If the former appeared in the latter’s space, relative running speed would suddenly become very important. Banks might soon have to run to keep up with change. “Will you be able to run? You might be the leader of your industry, but are you in good condition?” asked Sertl.
