What is the authentizotic organization?

Trust is earned when actions meet words.

INSEAD Professor of Leadership Development and Organizational Change, Manfred Kets de Vries has been writing about authentizotic organizations for decades. In his latest piece published this week he explains the origins of the term (from the Greek authentikos and zootikos, vital to life) and what it takes to create “corporate heaven” or the authentizotic organization. This short article contains small gems of insight including the use of play, the nature of trust and the importance of narrative.

Nothing compares with the power of narrative… but 

How do you help leaders find and share their “capital S” and the “lower-case s” stories?

 “What’s your story?”  Kellogg Business School hosts a conversation with Professor of Leadership Michelle Buck, Professor of Psychology Steven Franconeri and founder of Leadership Story Lab, Esther Choy. In this 13-minute podcast, learn how to guide clients toward their story, the reflective exercises that help us surface our stories and top storytelling tips to capture an audience’s attention.

How to disrupt patterns and habits in the way we approach things

A simple way to grasp the fundamental nature of the problem

In this 4-minute video, Mobius Senior Expert Jennifer Garvey Berger, renowned for her work in complexity and adult development, walks us through Snowden’s Cynefin framework to help us identify what sort of challenge we’re working with and what we need from a leader (or from ourselves) in the face of the predictable and the unpredictable. An excellent framing tool for coaching conversations.
