Buckminster Fuller - Leadership By Design

Buckminster Fuller - Leadership By Design | Align People | Scoop.it
Buckminster Fuller was a not only a gifted designer,
but his ability to see patterns allowed him develop a unique leadership style.
Billy R Bennett's insight:

I scooped this article earlier but felt it needed more exposure.  If we "make it' through the challenges of the coming years, we look to "Bucky" Fuller as one of the main sources of inspiration.  Bucky was a designer.  Not just in the architectural sense... in every sense.  He looked at the world as a series of interconnected systems.  His leadership style evolved and respresented his thinking.


Trim Tab


You will notice on his grave marker his self appointed nickname "Trim tab" the mini rudder on larger rudders that influence directional changes - minor adjustments that have big long range impact. 


Many people shy away from systems change because they stand so close to the problem they cannot see the system or they see it but think of it as too big.  Bucky could see systems because he looked at them, stood back to appreciate them, then looked for the place where small but significant changes could create a chain reaction of change.


It is the difference between being smart and being wise.

Align People Skill #2: Cultivating Trust

Align People Skill #2: Cultivating Trust | Align People | Scoop.it
Not winning? It might be the “trust thing”. For all of our talk of “Social” media, developing real  relationships in our workplace can be uncomfortable for many leaders.  The ones we hear...
Billy R Bennett's insight:

This blog post contains an infographic modeling trust as an organization "mechanism". 


People who are uncertain of how winning - success - is defined, will create their own definition.  As a result they will work to preserve self interests above the common good.  This brings certain dysfunction and performance drops.


So, if you want to re-build preformance begin with clarity around the requirements for success as you work on the relationship piece.
