Self-Disrupt to Redesign the Future of Work

  by SANDJA BRÜGMANN, Originally published in Conscious Company Media. “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.” – R. Buckminster Fuller The future of work encourages whole human beings to move toward their highest soulful potential. This requires a drastic redesign of organizations, how we work, and what we recognize as success. It calls on us to move away from control, manipulation, and fear toward cultures that support and foster personal growth, freedom, autonomy, and blossoming of the individual. Leaders operate their businesses within an increasingly complex context of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity). They must navigate resource scarcity, economic polarity, the speed of technological… Read more »

Making the Impossible Possible: Learning Authenticity f...

  by Chantell Haines Today’s companies are being tasked with the impossible: How can we make money for our shareholders, pay our employees well, and positively impact the environment and society as a whole? The purpose of a business used to be specifically to increase value for the shareholders. While this still clearly holds importance today, there is a growing pressure to expand this value to all stakeholders, and the perception of value is changing. Consumers and investors are demanding that value be created by more than just profit, that it be created by authenticity, transparency and trust. Companies are being challenged to figure out how to do this. Every single industry needs to redefine how it operates in order… Read more »

Ti råd til bæredygtige forretningsmodeller

Der er forretningsfordele i bæredygtige initiativer. Men hvilke initiativer, skal din virksomhed tage, og hvad kræver det af ledelsen? Skrevet af Stine Bjerre Herdel, F5 Lidl gør det, H&M gør det, Sticks&Sushi gør det, Aarstiderne gør det, Irma gør det, og mange, mange andre virksomheder i verden gør det: De tager initiativer i forretningen, der går i en mere bæredygtig retning – og de tjener penge på det. Faktisk er det kun et spørgsmål om tid, før alle virksomheder i et eller andet omfang er nødt til at tænke emner som socialt ansvar, miljø og klima ind i deres forretningsmodel. Det synspunkt kommer til udtryk i udtalelser fra en lang række globale virksomheder – og det støttes også herhjemme af blandt andre Morten Lehmann, CSR-chef… Read more »

Lad Os Kalde Det Noget Andet

CSR som begreb er i krise. Folk gider ikke at høre om miljøtiltag og miljøprofiler. Måske burde vi kalde det noget andet? Kim Rahbek og Sandja Brügmann var på podiet på Aalborg Universitet, hvor de foldede CSR-idéen ud. Skrevet af Eva Vestrheim, Forfatter, Copy Writer, Konsulent. Udgivet af Dansk Markedsføring.   Conscious Business er det nye sort ”over there”, og det må nødvendigvis inkorporeres i de danske forretningsmodeller, hvis vi vil overleve på et globalt marked. Basalt set handler Corporate Social Responsibility blot om enkelthed, ærlighed, transparens, ydmyghed, og at handle bevidst og ansvarligt. Hvor svært kan det være! Kim Rahbek, medstifter af Sticks’ n’ Sushi, og Sandja Brügmann, grundlægger af Refresh Agency, undrer sig over vores konforme måde at tænke… Read more »

Systems Thinking: Life-Enhancing Business Through Leade...

  Change is one of the most challenging elements of life within an organization. To sustain a change agenda moving away from behaviors and decisions that are life-destroying to becoming life-enhancing, the nuances of both corporate culture and the patterns of human behavior need to be understood. This requires systems thinking – also called visual seeing and thinking skills. I sat down with Fritjof Capra, one of the world’s most distinguished scientists and systems theorists, to discuss the implications of systems thinking for business, leadership and society. Sandja Brügmann: In Capra Course, you speak to the biggest crisis of our time – that we are not just experiencing a sustainability crisis, but a crisis of perception.

How Systems Thinking Makes You An Effective Leader

  In order for business to be relevant to consumers it needs to be part of the solution to the big challenges we face in the world today. This requires that leaders at the helm of business decisions, in academia and education, politics and society need to learn to see and think in systems, also called visual thinking. Seeing the interrelated patterns both internally in the organization’s financial, social and power flows; and externally, how the business generates value, makes money, behaves in context of employees, community, nation and the world scale will enable leaders to create high performing thriving teams, stay at the forefront of innovation and business acumen, and ahead of the curve of relevance. Fritjof Capra is… Read more »
