  • There are several underlying premises upon which

  • this panel is being convened

  • The technical content of work has increased dramatically in the last three decades

    • (both raw amount and proportion)

  • In order for organizations to compete in the marketplace today there will be a

    • significant portion of resources allocated to technical tasks and technical people.

  • If the organization’s products and services are technical in nature or driven by

    • technology the portion of resources allocated to technical tasks and technical people will be even greater.

  • In order to compete effectively organizations must tap into the discretionary effort

    • and initiative of members of the organization.

  • Technical people think differently than regular people.

  • If you want to tap into the discretionary effort and initiative of technical people you

    • have to know:

      • How they think,

      • What they value,

      • How they work,

      • How they like to be treated.

  • This is a complex issue. People and situations differ. Therefore how you handle

    • people and situations must differ. Hopefully, some underlying principles can be identified to guide leader action.

  • Here are some questions to consider

  • What are some characteristics of:

    • Organizational environments you enjoy working in?

    • Leaders you enjoy working for?

    • Senior leaders you enjoy working under?

    • Colleagues you enjoy working with?

    • Work you like to do?

  • How can you be motivated to offer Discretionary Effort & Initiative?

    • How do you like to be treated?

    • What motivates you to work at maximum output over a short period of time?

    • What motivates you to work at maximum output over a long period of time?

    • What de-motivates you?

  • What attracts you to an organization?

  • What keeps you at an organization?

  • What trends do you see around:

    • How leaders behave?

    • How organizations work?

    • How people respond?

    • How people decide whether or not to contribute?

    • How people decide to stay or leave?
