Endless Knots

"She brought Norm ," said the speaker, introducing the recipient of the NACD Lifetime Achievement Award tonight. Norm Augustine (long list of major positions in companies, non-profits, government, and academia) then clarified, saying that in fact his granddaughter was asked to bring "a really old thing." " You never know who's going to bring down the house but Norm really did. Bring Norm, virtually speaking.

"Exceptions are not exceptional - they are the norm"

Governance in a Networked World

And if exceptions are now the norm, then perhaps we need to re-think what enterprise software really means. I got this quote from a recent Deloitte publication on Social Software for Business Performance. Based on recent experiences in dealing with various service organisations I had started to think that maybe I really did have peculiar requirements, though to me virtually none of them was exceptional. As we know nowadays if you fall outside the 6 sigma band you are nowhere!

How to start meetings on time

Viv Mcwaters

It becomes the norm, expected even. I’m asked this question a lot. Meetings start late, and run over time. Everyone knows, and everyone compensates in their own way – generally turning up late. It becomes part of the way the organisation operates. If this is true for your organisation, or your group, there’s an easy way to change it. Finish on time. Every time. No exceptions. How to start meetings on time is a post from: vivmcwaters.com.au. No related posts. Culture

Exploring a non-tech world…

Michelle Laurie

This experiment will help me relearn life as it was before email, Facebook and Google searching became my norms. It is a temporary escape into a non-tech reality that was my ‘norm’ only ten years ago. For the next three weeks, I will remove the computer from my life. My hope is to read books (off-line) and pay attention to all that is around me outside of my global connections facilitated through online mechanisms.

Down the slopes with Stage IV pancreatic cancer

Endless Knots

I know this is not the norm; I offer it as testimony to what the human form can achieve, regardless of its "diagnosis" or "prognosis". There's an image we hold of people with terminal diagnoses, probably several images, frail, incapacitated, immobile. Stage IV cancer manifests many ways, and differently on different days. Here, one view of such a patient, Jeff Stamps , taken Saturday, Dec 11.

An Anti-Collaborative Pattern: Gossip

Michael Sampson - Currents

Pollyanna writes about the damaging effects of gossip on team performance : " Work place gossip (like gossip in any situation) undermines relationships. A successful team is built on solid healthy relationships which are built on trust.

On socialisation and education

Mathemagenic

What about making friends, learning the norms, experiencing traditions, working in groups, going through conflicts… We also talked about our homeschooling community. Yesterday, in a discussion with our homeschooling friends we talked about schools. About socialisation as a big part of what happens in a school, even when everyone talks that schools are about education. In a sense that question that every homeschooler gets, often before any discussion about learning, confirms it.

From The Edge: Social Networks are Like the Eye

Portals and KM

He describes how models of health spread via behaviors (copying what those near us do), norms (observations about others that modify our expectations), and ideology (knowing what is right). His research indicates that it's the norms that are most influential because, as he says, "they can fly through the ether" whereas for behaviors to propagate we need to be physically together.

A strong culture flourishes with a clear set of values and norms that actively guide the way a company operates.

You Can’t Tape-Delay Social Media; Web TV Convergence is Here

Cory adds that ‘two-screen experiences are now the norm for many TV households.” As I wrote a few weeks back, TV Web Convergence is already occurring through multi-taskers. Now could the Grammy people not know that their show would attract a lot of social media people tweeting about the show, the winners, and the losers.  So why did they do a tape delay for the West Coast?

How did we ever get into this mess?

Viv Mcwaters

Throw away the agenda, goals, purpose, group norms or any other standardised procedure. Meetings suck. There I’ve said it. Go to any meeting, anywhere, and you won’t have to scratch very much to find dissatisfaction, grumbling, discontent, sarcasm, cynicism, criticism, over-analysis, and posturing. I’m sure you can add to the list. Even ‘good’ meetings have their share of malcontents, either openly or covertly, intentionally or not, disrupting the meeting.

Not aligning: Not considering official norms, organizational ideals and expectations. • CONNECTIONS & CULTURE.
