SIMPLE is an acronym and a concept that consists of: S = for success, success story This letter stands for the successful things; the things we want contribute to. E.g. a socially relevant service, some meaningful idea you want to help achieve, the virtual network that you want to create, that great product your organization makes. Not the loose baggy or ukase from some manager who thinks he can coach, or in advance proclaimed structural changes that has to be achieved based on ‘old school management thinking “. I = for intelligence and inclusion This letter indicates how and whether you have considered the ‘why‘ behind the demand of your customer, organization, manager or other stakeholder. Or whether a task is given to you just to fix something for the short term. In the Netherlands projects are diminished to mere COPAFIJTH (A) aspects. Your contribution to fulfill your job, working…

As said in my previous blogs, SIMPLE is an acronym. Each letter of the word SIMPLE stands for an approach, point or principle. S = Success story or just story I = Intelligence M = Mission-driven P = Passion L = Love & Leadership E = Energy, empowerment and engagement These words are carefully chosen. Not just because the first letter of each word, together form the word SIMPLE. The word SIMPLE has been my most important starting point, though. With this set of SIMPLE principles I want to appeal to managers, leaders and (sometimes just self-appointed) coaches to remind them that there are very useful alternatives to traditional management methods, old school frameworks and traditional ‘thinking”. Secondary purpose of my blogs, of course, is to create a more hands-on purpose to the one-liners I regularly use in this blog series and in real life, so they’re not mere words.…

In this blog I would like to convey my thoughts on Love & Leadership.You might ask: “What has love got to do with business?” Well, I think a whole lot! When I started working on my SIMPLE concept, a manager of an IT company (whom I consider a dear friend), was immediately enthusiastic. We discussed about the concept and the only thing he had some problems with, was the word LOVE. Because it doesn’t sound very business-like. He suggested I’d better use the word leverage. That I came up with the word love, he could understand, but that love & leadership have something to do with each other was just a mere notion. As I have said in my previous blogs, SIMPLE is an acronym. Each letter of the word SIMPLE stands for an approach, point or principle. S = Success story or just storyI = IntelligenceM = Mission-drivenP =…

The P of SIMPLE is the P of Passion The letter P stands for the passion that you have to achieve things. Things that you are enthusiastic about and that you want to take responsibility for. Alone and / or with your colleagues, business partners and friends. In my previous blog posts I introduced an acronym: SIMPLE. Each letter of the word SIMPLE stands for an approach, point or principle. S = Success story or just storyI = IntelligenceM = Mission-drivenP = PassionL = Love & LeadershipE = Energy-giving, empowerment These words are carefully chosen. Not just because the first letter of each word, together form the word SIMPLE. The word SIMPLE has been my most important starting point. As said, the S, I and M are already posted, so now for the letter P. Where do you find PASSION? I think Passion is everywhere. If you look closely! It…

Simple is a concept and an acronym. Each letter of the word SIMPLE stands for something: S = Success story, or just Story.I = IntelligenceM = Mission drivenP = PassionL = Love & LeadershipE = Energy giving, empowerment The words are carefully chosen, not because the 1st letters of it simply forms the word SIMPLE. This word SIMPLE has been the main starting point in my thoughts in this series of weblogs. With the set of approaches or principles inserted in SIMPLE, I want to appeal to managers, leaders and many so-called coaches to remind them all, that there are alternatives to traditional management mindsets en methods. And also that it is very difficult to comprehend for these people, because they have been brainwashed with old school management theories for ages. But mainly I want to put some heart into the people, who are confronted daily with the traditional management…

In deze blog de resultaten van de Stoos workshop geleid door Jurgen Appelo, met wat aanvullingen mijnerzijds. Halverwege juli heb ik een blog gepost over de 10 slechtste manieren om te managen. Dat was natuurlijk niet de enige workshop in de twee enorm leuke Stoos dagen. Wellicht dat ik ook nog over sessie storytelling en gamification terugkom, dat zien we nog wel. Maar terug naar de workshop van Jurgen getiteld: ‘can we rate organizations by intrinsic motivation?’ Jurgen legde uit wat – volgens onderzoek- de hoogste score op de motivatie ladder geeft. Dat zijn de volgende ‘toestanden’: Curiosity, Honor, Acceptance, Mastery, Power, Freedom, Relatedness, Order and Status. In gewoon Nederlands dus: nieuwsgierigheid, eer, acceptatie, meesterschap (vakkennis), vrijheid, verbondenheid, orde en status. We besloten na te gaan wat de meest nuttige vragen zijn die je kunt stellen om er achter te komen of een bedrijf bij jou past en die in…

Je moest weggaan en stuurde een kaartje met de volgende groet: And your heart beats so slow, Through the rain and fallen snow, Across the fields of mourning, Lights in the distance, Oh, don’t sorrow – no, don’t weep, For tonight, at last, I am coming home, I am coming home.(U2: A sort of homecoming) 7 keer zijn we een weekend met vriendinnen op pad geweest in steden zoals Londen, Parijs, Brugge en Gent. Wat hebben we gelachen met elkaar.22 keer hebben we gezamenlijk korte en lange vakanties met onze gezinnen doorgebracht. Genoten hebben we, ook al was het regelmatig slecht weer.203 keer hebben we gedoken als duikbuddy’s in de Hollandse plassen en op meerdere duikstekken in de Rode- en de Middellandse Zee. Zelfs aan de kust van de Dominicaanse Republiek. Het was altijd fantastisch.47 jaar, 7 maanden en 27 dagen heb ik je gekend. Ik hield van jou op…

U als lezer zult direct denken: “wat is dat nu weer: Sjtooozz”. “Is dat een manier van slecht management”? Welnee, het gaat om hoe je de naam van het plaatsje Stoos in Zwitserland uitspreekt. Een gewoon wintersportplaatsje, zo’n 60 km zuidelijk van Zurich. Daar zijn een aantal mensen bijeengekomen die daar gesproken hebben over goede en slechte manieren om te managen. En wat er in dit tijdsgewricht aan management nog nodig is. De goede manier van managen is daar omgedoopt tot “management the Stoos way” De Engelssprekende mensen spreken Stoos al gauw uit als ‘stoes ‘, terwijl je het op z’n Zwitsers moet uitspreken als “Sjtooozz”. Vandaar dit woord in de titel van deze blog. Stoos Stampede Wat ook belangrijk is, is dat een vijftal Nederlanders: Astrid, Erwin, Jurgen, Melina en Wouter op 6 en 7 juli 2012 een vervolg op deze bijeenkomst georganiseerd hebben in Nederland. Namelijk de (1e)…
