 Why do companies ask employees to come up with innovations and then work hard to block it? Gary Klein, author of Seeing What Others Don’t and countless other books on decision-making, shares his research with host Dawna Jones about the value insights bring to companies, and how companies block innovation and work against themselves.

You’ll learn:

  • What insights are and why they have such high value to business for innovation and solving wicked problems
  • How Six Sigma and stamping out errors stamps out innovation
  • Where insights come from and how you can recognize your insights
  • How chains of command filter out insights and why no one person should have the right to veto an idea
  • Why curiosity is better than counting errors and why celebrating being right is more effective than focusing on errors.

Gary Klein is a research psychologist famous for his work in pioneering the field of naturalistic decision-making. Among his books are Sources of Power and Intuition. In this interview we talk about his book, Seeing What Others Don't: The Remarkable Ways We Gain Insights. His keen observations and inquiry skills builds a bridge between theory and life. You will find Gary’s books online at Amazon and other retailers. His work is also included in Dawna’s Decision Making for Dummies.

 

Dawna Jones, host of the Insight to Action podcast, is an author and change innovator specializing in the deep dynamics of transformation at a human and organizational level. She blogs monthly for the Huffington Post Great Workplace Cultures; wrote Decision Making for Dummies and has contributed a chapter on the new purpose of business to Ervin Laszlo’s The Intelligence of the Cosmos being released in mid-October, 2017. You can find Dawna on Twitter EPDawna_Jones and on LinkedIn.

Raised on pioneer Morning Star’s self-management practices, Doug Kirkpatrick knew autonomy from the start. His book Beyond Empowerment: The Age of the Self-Managed Organization has been revised to include updates and more stories of companies taking steps toward self-management and the compelling benefits. In this interview with Insight to Action host and global change agent, Dawna Jones, they talk about:

  • Why the term is ‘beyond empowerment’ and the fatal flaw in empowerment programs,
  • Why the term employee is obsolete and the importance of language in the future of work
  • Why you are already self-managing and didn’t realize it
  • Why you can’t be fired in a self-managing company
  • Why change is fluid and non-threatening in a self-management context
  • How decisions get made
  • The gamification of financial planning to handle the unpredictable and unknown (plus it’s much more fun than tedious budget processes that take months!)
  • How big to small companies are applying the principles and practices of self-management including manufacturing giant Haier.

Doug Kirkpatrick is an organizational change consultant, TEDx and keynote speaker, executive coach, writer and educator. Doug played the first season of his business career in the manufacturing sector, principally with The Morning Star Company of Sacramento, California, a world leader in the food industry. He now engages with the Morning Star Self-Management Institute and other vibrant organizations and leaders to co-create the future of management. Doug is part of the Great Workplace Cultures network and he regularly blogs for the Huffington Post Great Workplaces.

Dawna previously interviewed Doug for her Evolutionary Provocateur podcast. That replay is posted on Management-Issues.com Tomatoes and Self-Management or in iTunes.

Doug is looking for stories of transformation successful or not. Dawna is too. Sometimes they turn into podcasts like Stephenie Gloden’s EP 14 on redesigning the higher education system. We all learn.
