Con­fi­dent or­gan­i­sa­tions

ArabAd - - FORECAST -

“I’m very fo­cused on what de­fines the great or­gan­i­sa­tions emerg­ing to­day. Over the next year we’ll con­tinue to see that the or­gan­i­sa­tions that flour­ish are those that are con­fi­dent – not over-con­fi­dent, nor un­der-con­fi­dent. There are sev­eral key char­ac­ter­is­tics your or­gan­i­sa­tion will re­quire to en­able you to re­tain this mid­dle ground. Firstly, you’ll need a clear sense of pur­pose. You’ll en­able ev­ery­one in your com­pany to play to their strengths and you’ll cre­ate a cul­ture of col­lab­o­ra­tion where peo­ple know they can sup­port but also chal­lenge each other. In this con­fi­dent or­gan­i­sa­tion you don’t sim­ply rely on your knowl­edge and ex­per­tise for suc­cess, but rather on your abil­ity to work ef­fec­tively with oth­ers. You cre­ate high lev­els of trust by lis­ten­ing and be­ing open to ideas from all around the or­gan­i­sa­tion and you de­velop high lev­els of in­di­vid­ual and or­gan­i­sa­tional re­silience (our ca­pac­ity to cope with the de­mands of our en­vi­ron­ment). If you can do all of that you’ll be well on the way to en­joy­ing a great year.” – Richard Jolly, Ad­junct Pro­fes­sor of Or­gan­i­sa­tional Be­hav­iour
