How can organisations expect their people to deliver phenomenal results in the current climate? With increased stress at work and outside it, it is vital that we reflect on this question to understand where organisations are unintentionally blocking contribution.

In this show, Dawna talks to Anne Murray Allen, the Director for the Executive Development Center at Willamette University's Atkinson Graduate School of Management.

In this role Anne is responsible for developing non-degree certificate programs in business and public management essentials, sustainability, and industry-specific training. But her personal areas of interest and research are in understanding how healthy, performance-based organizations are built and sustained.

These 'social networks of collaboration' are a key ingredient for organizations and communities to move into the future taking effective action in building a sustainable future.

Anne retired from Hewlett-Packard in 2005, having served in a variety of management and executive positions over a 16 year period. These included leading company-wide Knowledge and Intranet Management, strategic planning (at the division and at the corporate level), culture integration for the Compaq/HP merger, IT for the Imaging and Printing Group, production management for scanners and Inkjet cartridges.

While still at HP, Anne co-authored an article with Dennis Sandow entitled, "The Nature of Social Collaboration" published in Reflections Journal, May 2005.

Anne's social action research initiative while she worked in Hewlett Packard turned up some surprising results on what lies at the roots of phenomenal results and what you must embody as a leader to support the high functioning of those around you.

The Evolutionary Provocateur bi-monthly show is for executives, managers, and supervisors (OR for leaders at all levels) who have noticed that it is not what you know but who you are that has the biggest impact.

Dawna Jones, the show's host, believes that by raising awareness and understanding we can make a quantum leap to a new level of innovation in business - but it has to be done collectively.

What better way to do it than by provoking the evolution of how you see yourself and your role!
