Reason 543 Why You MUST Stop Site Blocking: Your Employees Can't Solve Their Problems On Their Own

The Bamboo Project Blog

Unfortunately for the vast majority of front line workers at the organizations I work with, this would not have been the case. At the same time, their managers will complain that staff don't solve their own problems, that they aren't innovative or creative in their work.

A 4-Step Process to Learning When Your Organization Isn't That Into It

If they aren't going to get it at work, then it's the employer's problem. Beth Kanter is really good at them.

Cultivating Curiosity

The Bamboo Project Blog

Peter Bromberg over at ALA Learning is asking about how you create a culture of curiosity , something that's been on my mind of late. Being in a state of curiosity means looking out at the world, collecting data, observing human behaviors and interactions, and asking “why?” I've observed that curiosity seems to be dead or dying for many of us on the job at a time when questioning minds need to be hard at work finding new solutions to intractable problems.

10 Reasons NOT to Ban Social Media in Your Organization

While specific tools may be more or less popular at any given time or in a particular industry, the principles of social media are here to stay.

Jane Hart is spearheading an effort to collect information on why you should NOT ban social media in your organization.

Is It OK to Hug at Work?

45 Things

I got into a conversation recently about how "chummy" people should be with one another at work. One person I know expressed the opinion that she didn't mind it when others hugged her at work -- even if she barely knew them. At the same time, I wouldn't suggest hugging an interviewer -- a solid handshake it enough. I've written about this before, but it seems to be an issue that comes up again and again.

The Complexity of Transferring Lessons Learned from Projects

Conversation Matters

But unfortunately too many attempts at lessons learned don’t work. Multiple Lessons: The lesson that is learned by a team is the picture or story that they are able to put together at that time. Lessons constructed at any one point are not so much “truth” as they are the team’s current perspective. Periodic Sensemaking: Particularly with lengthy projects, there is a need to make sense of what is being learned at appropriate stages rather than waiting until project end.
