“COMPANIES NEED TO RE-ENGAGE THEIR PEOPLE. THE PRACTICE OF BOTH MANAGEMENT AND LEADERSHIP NEEDS TO BE RE-THOUGHT”

Henry Minztberg, HBR July-Aug 2009

One of the great minds of business and management, Mintzberg has been at the forefront of thinking about what works and what does not in organisations for decades. We ignore his conclusions at our peril.

Similarly Gary Hamel in The Future of Management spelled out frankly the broken nature of the present model of management and suggested how it needs to be re-constructed. While for HR practitioners the post recessionary landscape may look blurry, the outlines are daily becoming clearer involving engagement, innovation, community, leadership, culture and trust.

As with mountain climbing, you can have all the right gear and still come a cropper. What will matter even more than the right equipment or skills, will be HR practitioners with the courage and character to show how they can really make a difference.
