Everybody Matters Podcast: The Ambidextrous Organization

Many times, change in Barry-Wehmiller has been born out of necessity because of the challenges of being in industrial manufacturing. Other times, we’ve made changes because it was the right thing to do. In our leadership and company culture, we’re constantly trying to incorporate new ideas to better the lives of those within our span of care.

However, you’d be surprised at the number of organizations who are stuck in one way of thinking. They may be moving forward in some ways, but in other ways they are horribly behind, much to the detriment of their people. In his new book, The Rise of the Ambidextrous Organization, Dr. Eric Zabiegalski introduces a way of thinking to constantly learn and reassess where your company is going and why and how it is getting there.

He talks about it on this week’s episode of the Everybody Matters Podcast.

Truly Human Leadership is found throughout Barry-Wehmiller Companies, where Bob Chapman is Chairman and CEO. A $3+ billion global capital equipment and engineering consulting firm, Barry-Wehmiller’s 12,000 team members are united around a common belief: we can use the power of business to build a better world. Chapman explores that idea in his Wall Street Journal best-selling book, Everybody Matters: The Extraordinary Power of Caring For Your People Like Family, available from Penguin Random House.

    Great perspectives!

    There’s no cookie cutter approach to Leadership or Shepherding an organization.

    We know Everybody is individually and uniquely different. It takes discernment to be able to understand what you as a leader needs to implement to persuade and inspire people to act on their inner talents helping them along their way to success and fulfillment.

    The insight of an ambidextrous organization is spot on and timely.

    Thank you for sharing!
