By doing this, the individual is given the freedom, responsibility, power - all that will help in motivating the him/her to go to the next level.
How does one grow leaders in the same speed (or faster) as the organization?
This hack tries to suggest a way to develop leaders faster.
- Identify a set of Leaders who are well-known, already occupying a range of portfolios
- Empower them with responsibilities that a CEO can take
- Provide them with the targets to be achieved over a year
- Senior Management to have 'Board meetings' every 6 months with each CEO to review progress.
All responsibilities of the group are taken by the CEO, whether it is the Investment decisions, Strategy-making, Recruitment processes, etc along with the regular tasks (Sales, Execution).
Once the portfolio is enlarged, the CEO has a larger breadth of vision and starts having a bigger picture. Automatically, the organization gets beneftited by this approach.
I have read your hack with the following criteria in mind:
- The need is to evolve out of Command & Control. Does the hack define an alternative?
- The alternative must be compelling. It must recognize the need to overcome the constraints of time, energy and motivation.
- An alternative without the use of technology is unlikely to succeed.
- The alternative must create a constructive collective by intrinsic means, i.e., desist from 'brain-washing' personnel for discipline and organization.
Bill Nobles in his hack on Freedom has done tremendous groundwork to arrive at the action promoted by you – the breaking up of Command & Control. Perhaps philosophy is an extremely important ingredient of transformation. Bill has supported his hack with excellent examples of success from where he has developed his philosophy of Freedom and smaller units run by people who will promulgate Freedom. Bill acknowledges that the philosophy of Freedom is quite dependent on the leadership. Thus it is not really intrinsic. Freedom is a great concept but will need something more than missionary zeal to become a movement for transformation.
