A brand new episode with a special guest. I invited my Co-founder Justus von Wedekind to join the podcast. He is for sure an expert in the field of EX with a lot of practical experience. Justus gave clear tips on data-driven tools that help creating a better EX and took a critical view on F. Laloux's book: „Reinventing organizations".

In 2001, Gallup published 12 questions that demonstrably establish a positive correlation between employee engagement and business performance. The questionnaire can be used wonderfully in teams to initiate a very pragmatic change process "from below". It is exciting that the questions reflect many aspects of New Work / positive employee experience.
Human proximity via direct personal contact is currently a rare commodity - and at the same time a core requirement for agile, motivated and independent work. But how do we create this closeness without direct contact? The market is currently flooded with digital tools. Used correctly, they can help to combine the creativity of new work approaches and the dynamics of agile project management with the element of proximity and trust.
Are laterally guided teams better than those guided by directives? They are definitely one - self-organized, empowered and, in my experience, more motivated. Therefore - yes, I find them better! The path from directive to lateral, however, is sometimes rocky and long - practical experience has shown me one thing above all - there are really good companions on the way there, and they are: clarity and transparency, patience and iteration as well as appreciation and humour. They turn good teams into really good, cool and motivated teams.
I find it remarkable that the two foci "New Work" and "Making Money" seem to be positioned on opposite ends of a continuum. But why does this have to be a contradiction? Let's combine the two and use Corona (or the working world according to Corona) as an opportunity to consciously combine the two.
