    Thanks for your points. Very well made. Here at Abodoo we have experts who have faced the issues you mention and have learned the lessons of remote working over a 7 year period and we want to share our learning with other organisations. Remote working is good for the employee, the employer but also society as well. Thats why we are so passionate about our 'movement' #1

    As experienced in IT, also specifically in early flexible/remote working and teleconferencing, mid nineties of last century, we were working on a number of possibilities for a large international. Since IT's focus is on strategic gain, in this instance reducing costs, it may become understandable that if you prevent half the staff from traveling, you are talking about millions of immediate savings that partially can be invested elsewhere. WinWin. By fully implementing access from anywhere tot the networks, mind you, this is pre LAN/WAN era, telephone lines only, we had to think very smart and achieved to prevent over 50% of the expats to even travel more than half.

    Three elements of utmost importance to consider...

    1. Security
    Remote working will pose a closer eye and investment in security and control
    2. Not every discipline is suited for remote/flexible working
    Think production work, think transport, think factory work, think stock and shop work. It basically is limited to smaller and free disciplines and jobs as well as office automation for the more flex disciplines such as traveling representatives, IT staff, Internet developers.
    3. Not every person is suited for remote or flex working
    Not everyone has self discipline or stability or perhaps unstable situation to work remote. Working remote partially can be monitored but we know out of experience that it may take a very long time to detect some simply don't have 'it' bud are real masters in hiding that.

    #24 - again dear @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee- you are spot on. I am writing now a buzz on why KPIs sometimes are irrelevant and cause us to have tunnelling effect. I voiced similar thoughts to yours on the conference. Kodak focused on great KPIs and advanced rapidly, but only to get blind to the emerging opportunities and threats of the then emerging electronic camera. We have built many paradigms based on KPIs such as the balanced scorecard. That is fine, but then I need to understand that how could KPIs work with complex systems and their unpredictability as you explained wonderfully in your comment. Apparently, we lose our senses sometimes by following trends and without enough consideration of their limitations.

    #23 An amazing comment with its high quality dear @Deb🐝 Lange, Brand Ambassador @beBee. You are right as we have abandoned many of our good practices and replaced them with less functional ones. Your examples reflect your deep understanding and practicing of solid self-organizing activities. When we adopt approaches that force the tablet in our throats and expect great results then we shall be fooling ourselves. People shall be more engaged if they work on things they like and are attracted to them. You explained this perfectly well.

    On your conversation re KPI's - I remember earlier in my career we focussed on clearly identifying the outcomes we wanted to achieve. Once again this fine for known tangible activities. I want to plan to fly to London. I know my outcome and I plan the actions to get there. But the outcome of the trip is less known. I may have a vision for wanting to meet with people and have inspiring conversations that lead me to make better choices in the world. Or I may envision meeting like minded people who have a problem and I can help them solve that problem with my experience and expertise. How I go about the meeting, interacting, conversing, understanding, with these people is less predictable. There are so many unknowns. there are so many things that may emerge that I have to work out how in the moment using my resilience and wit in the moment. I may have a KPI that states I bring back "x" amount of business. If I focus on that specifically, perhaps I miss some other opportunity. I think we forget that we develop these things to help us achieve something and they are guides. We try to make them black and white and set them in concrete. The world is just not like that. The more complex, the more resilient we need to be, which means discarding tools that no longer work for us and creating new ones. And doing that again and again.

    Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee graet to hear your report from your conference. It sounds like it was organised using a methodology like "Open Space" - I have facilitated many events using this method and it has its' foundation on self-organising systems. I think many organisations could use this method internally and it would free up much energy inside an organisation. Many people complain about all the meetings they have to attend. With Open Space organisation you would choose to go the ones that are relevant for you - you would also share responsibility for making the meeting work - and be freed up to host different types of exchanges. As I have been around for awhile it was methods like Open Space, Conversation Cafe, The Art of Hosting, Search, Circle Dialogue processes that emerged and made a big difference to the conversations people had many years ago. It seems like everything there is a cycle, and now many of these methods are either no longer used or have faded into the background again. So I was delighted to hear of your conference being organised like this. there are so many valuables methods for organising people in more meaningful ways it is a shame they are not used more.

    Dear @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, thank you for sharing this with us. Your comment that CSR needs an "inverting of thinking" approach resonated with me. May I suggest it may even need turning inside out, being shaken, and possibly tossed around the room also! I want to also mention @Deb 🐝 Helfrich's comment. Her insight: "KPIs and CSRs both have this worldwide blindspot built right in unless companies really examine the framework both initiatives provide. It saves time to have a shared list of key performance indicators in reviewing certain slices of employees work. But there is a real danger that only things that fit in the previously determined framework will be noticed" is profoundly important. Research of any kind is limited by the nature of the "tools" we bring to the task. Our consciousness or awareness of what really matters needs to be moulded, not just by cultural norms, but rather also by what many are realizing deep within their hearts. Human resources (gee I dislike that term!) can be seen as commodities or as vital contributors to the hive that every company can be.

    #18 My dear @Cyndi wilkins- I am truly thrilled that you noticed the parallism with hives. I am so happy that you did. Yes, hives on beBee are a form of self-organizing with the possibility of pollinating each other. It is pollinating and NOT pollinating. You made my day.

    20/07/2017 #18 Cyndi wilkins
    This is a perfect example of understanding the 'uniqueness' of each human being and the value they bring to an organization...Be it complex Corporate functionality or simply pollinating 'the hives' with valuable insights to perhaps assist those in areas of struggle to strengthen the 'hive' or business as a whole.

    I love the parallel you have created here @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee....in reference to this platform...with all bees contributing their unique expertise to each of the hives of their interest, we are building a sustainable platform for those looking for a voice where they may have otherwise been squelched into silence;-)

    #16 Thank you so much for your compliment. I say that the conference was well-prepared and the environment was very supportive. The engagement of participants was beyond expectation. Yes, and I wonder who dared to coin the term headhunter. Coining a term reflects on the person who coined it. What if he had opted for bees for our hive? You know this is a rather unspoken value of beBe- the hives are the attraction and attention of talents.

    Clearly you were an excellent choice for a speaker at the 'Fingerprint of Change' Conference, Ali. And it sounds as if you enjoyed your time presenting at it; with an audience who, no doubt, appreciated your invaluable input. I also appreciated Joanne Gardocki's comment regarding people being treated as talent. In fact, today companies have individuals called 'Talent Attraction Strategists'; hopefully finally eliminating the ugly word 'headhunter'. Now if only company presidents and ceo's remembered that good talent is how and why a company grows and prospers. And, yes, as Sara Jacobovici suggests - you should add 'journalist' to your curriculum vitae!

    I am referring to your comment in my next buzz. The idea of the buzz is that we tend to divide organization as simple, complicated, complex, chaotic and unknown. Yes, the work of some organizations might be simple, but the human employees (not robots) are complex bodies). That said the question then becomes how simple is a simple organization? I find the idea of self-organizing organizations is also extensible from self-organizing teams. Your smiling comment brought a butterfly effect on my and is urging me to write on this topic.

    What a wonderful hopeful message, @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee, thank you for the buzz report. I can't fully describe the sense of relief when I read HR is evolving from personnel function to talent management. It is degrading for people to be handled as widgets that fit anywhere and then disposed of with the same algorithm as excess stock. Understanding that people bring talent and value is so important to cultivating, growing and engaging that talent within the company for a better bottom line.

    I had to copy my comment and go to your profile @Jim 🐝 Cody to find this buzz again. It wouldn't post and then I lost the page so here it is :))
    When I worked at the hospital in Respiratory Therapy, a good team was vital. We had to respond to many traumas and without a good team, the patient may have suffered. I can only draw from my time in the hospital because I've never worked in a Corporate setting. I did work in a small office with 8 people and I have to say, our boss (not a leader) created an environment that caused half the office to be on pins and needles, not to mention cranky. A good leader fell under #2 on your list in particular for me when I worked at the hospital, he didn't even have to work at producing employee trust... he led by example, he was admired and well liked which rubbed off on all of us. He was also a patient and understanding man. My boss in the office environment was a good example of everything a bad leader is.

    @Jim 🐝 Cody Your #6 is most important for my personality. Over and over throughout my life, I have always been a guru and it has work. Yet, I have learned that it doesn't work in a team. Team usually already have a system in place. So the question for me usually was, "I am willing to learn or change to benefit from this team or keep working alone?" Sometimes it was harder then seemed. I would join a team, and keep doing something my why and have to realize that it didn't work until I came to my senses and say to myself, "okay, I am ready to learn this."

    #4 @Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee Self-Directed is probably the most appropriate because they are almost never self-organized. They are usually started by management and trained on how to work together especially concerning managing budget.
    I just wish more companies would use this in their organizations however; upper and middle management is unwilling to empower the employees for fear of losing control. When using these methods companies can eliminate some layers of management and this is their greatest fear.
    Many thanks, for your comment.

    The findings you report on the productivity of self-directed teams re impressive @Jim 🐝 Cody and shows that self-directed teams are the way to go. I apply the same in my office. I have very stable working staff who work with growing understanding and respect.
    I wonder why we coin so many different names for same things. I believe self-directed teams, self-organized teams and bioteams mean the same thing, unless I am unaware of some "secrets"

    Nice blogging buzz, Jim. It's all about teamwork, that's how worker bees collectively build hives. No one does it alone. Keep buzzing, my dear friend!

    The Importance of House Rules and Safety Measures for Foster Children
    The Importance of House Rules and Safety Measures for Foster ChildrenOne thing I have learned over the years as a foster parent is that I must be flexible. To be sure, I never know when a child will arrive or leave my home, as there is often very little notice in either regard. In the past few months, I have seen...

    As I watch your video, I find myself nodding in agreement to so much of what you say. If I could click on the relevant icon 5 times, I would.

    I work for a Fortune 100 company supporting the highest echelon of the company. I see this close up and on both sides. Our executive leadership hears about employees who feel invisible and try very hard to remedy that.

    Last year, my organization initiated an emerging leaders event whereby we brought 10 young and up and coming/top talent from around the world to our headquarters. We held three days of activities for them ranging from 1:1 meetings with the most senior leaders; group presentations from senior leaders sharing their stories; group network and dinners to name a few. We also offered the "California" experience for these people, some of which had never left their country before.

    The event was phenomenally successful. I was lucky to be the one to arrange everything, soup to nuts. One of the things that pleasantly surprised me was how super excited they got with the gift bags I gave them. Books were an item in the books. You are spot on about how people look differently about a book given as a gift.

    These folks went home on a puffy white cloud. They were so excited, so ready to pass along their learnings and experiences to their teams at home.

    Really, what I've written here doesn't explain how well it was received. But, I have to say.....that our little event went over SO well, that HR is implementing the exact type of event corporate wide.

    I look forward to reading your book. So sorry this comment is so wordy. Ha.
