“Adaptive teams and wilding organisations” A conversation with Jon Barnes.

The Talking Point: The IMEX Group Podcast

Today in our episode we’re talking re-wilding organisations to improve productivity, resilience, and collaboration with Jon Barnes, Adaptive Organisations Consultant.  You’ll take away insights including:  We speak a lot about learning from nature (it’s out Talking Point!), but exactly how are we putting this into practice at IMEX?  What does being a gardener have to do with good leadership?!  What is an adaptive team? And how can being adaptive increase employee freedom and responsibility?  Why should we move away from “traditional” agile working jargon towards nature metaphors? (Hint: human beings aren’t machines!)  Why over-structuring an organisation can result in waste of energy, talent and money – and how do we break out of those structures?  What are the longer-term benefits of “waiting and watching” – nurturing your team to develop their own solutions to problems?  ---  You can reach Jon at his website here: http://jonbarnes.me We're excited that Jon has allowed us to give his Wilding Organisations book away totally free of charge. It really is the simplest and quickest way to get a flavour of adaptive working and the benefits it could bring to your business: http://jonbarnes.me/books/wilding-organisations ---  If you're interested in learning more about IMEX, our events, our values and why we call our company 'The heartbeat of the global business events community', visit our website: www.imexexhibitions.com.

Talking autonomy, accountability and agency with Jon Barnes

The Happy Startup School

In the episode with Jon Barnes we explore his ideas on education and work. He shares his thoughts on the way we've been schooled and how it has impacted on the way we work. We're all brought up told exactly how things are: what to wear, where to sit and when to speak. Schooling is something done to us rather than for us. We're not given autonomy, and so we don't learn accountability and so lose our sense of agency. This has repercussions on our sense of freedom and our ability to act independently or entrepreneurially as adults. He tells the story of the changes he saw in his son, Ivor, when they took a family adventure to Costa Rica and enrolled him in Casa Sula, a school that promotes independent learning. Talking about Ivor's shift from needing to told what to do to becoming more self driven and motivated starts our conversation about Jon's own work and why he considers himself an activist trying to change the restrictive systems that exist in the workplace.
