Good Monday Morning to this week 24 of 2019
This week I was reading and quite impressed by the trend in large companies to apply methods of “Unboss”.
UNBOSS is a new mindset that turns conventional understanding of management and works on its head and transforms limited companies into unlimited movements.
Here are some of their principles:
– Focus on purpose rather than profit.
– Dissolve the old hierarchy and encourage everyone to work together.
– Transform your business into an unlimited social network.
– Become a great place to work and attract the best people.
– Step aside and let your co-workers take the lead.
– Turn customers into partners and advocates for your cause.
– Involve people outside your company – also in research and development.
– Tolerate mistakes and talk openly about them.
– Strengthen dialogue throughout the organization through the use of social media
– Forget short-term go back to passion the basis upon which you were founded.
Good stuff – I like it!
Somehow I get the feeling Jesus knew a whole lot about this method and put it into practice a long time ago! He knew a lot about priorities, passion, future, purpose, changing society, bottom-up instead of top-down, recruiting, drawing in, encouraging, strengthening, dealing with mistakes, relationships, authority, power and much more.
Here are some of the statements that changed the world and that can keep changing the world if applied.
– Love your neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22:37-40
– Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.
– Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33
– As you wish that men would do to you, do so to them. Jesus
– For where your treasure is, there your heart is! Jesus
– And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ The King
– Let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another. Hebrews
– God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong. Peter
– We may ask, what does someone know, Jesus asks, how is he using what he knows.
– Jesus solved problems in people’s lives. The more He did this, the more His reputation spread and the more influence He had among the people and the culture. His core method was through extravagant servant leadership.
– Jesus’ life as a foot-washing servant would eventually lead to the adoption of humility as a widely admired virtue.
– The ancient world loved education but tended to reserve it for the elite; the notion of Jesus, that every child bore God’s image helped fuel the move for universal literacy.
– Jesus had a universal concern for those who suffered that transcended the rules of the ancient world. His compassion for the poor and the sick led to institutions for lepers, the beginning of modern-day hospitals.
– Jesus had a way of championing the excluded that was often downright irritating to those in power. His inclusion of women led to a community to which women flocked in disproportionate numbers. Slaves—up to a third of ancient populations—might wander into a church fellowship and have a slave-owner wash their feet rather than beat them.
– The apostle Paul said: “Now there is neither Jew nor Gentile, slave or free, male and female, but all are one in Christ Jesus.” Thomas Cahill wrote that this was the first statement of egalitarianism in human literature.
Jesus established culture, a flourishing culture. A few principles by Shelly Trebesch
1. Authentic Engagement
2. Invitation to Participate
With these behaviors, he established a flourishing culture, a framework, a reproducing, life-oriented environment where anyone could experience God’s, true heart.
Wishing you a wonderful empowered and engaged week in participation with what Jesus wants to do with you.
