Be A Radically Open-minded Leaders

Hari itu hari Sabtu siang, panas terik, kami sedang berada di kantor CIPD Singapore (Chartered Institute of Personel and Development).

Sekitar 50-an peserta mendengarkan sharing session beberapa profesor, senior consultan dan praktisi dari berbagai industri.

Perhatian saya tertuju kepada Profesor Andreas Raharso, seorang profesor INSEAD yang hari itu ikut sharing session kepada kami.

Kami memanggilnya dengan akrab Om Andre.

Beliau hari itu sharing tentang trend terbaru di Industri 4.0 dan peran penting Artificial Intelligence di dalamnya.

Tetap saja sebuah organisasi akan sangat tergantung pada leadernya.

Dan di sinilah leader harus benar benar mempunyai open mind.

Begitu banyak hal yang akan berubah, the world will be even more uncertain, volatine, complex and ambigue (remember VUCA?), well, it will be VUCA at the extreme level.

Lihat saja trend yang misalnya terjadi di dunia perhotelan.

Tadinya hotel-hotel terkotak-kotak dengan kategori bintang tiga, empat dan lima

Kemudian Accor group dari Perancis membuat kategori sendiri (Formule 1, Ibis, Novotel, Sofitel)

Kemudian dunia perhotelan kembali digoyang oleh situs booking online.

Selanjutnya disrupsi terjadi lagi dengan AirBnB.

Eh, sekarang sudah ada Home Exchange di mana anda bisa liburan gratis di rumah orang lain di negara lain, asalkan anda bertukar rumah dengan mereka (ini pertukaran rumah ya, tolong jangan tanyakan ke saya apakah ada children exchange atau wife exchange)

Kita melihat perubahan yang terus menerus terjadi.

Dan mempelajari masa lalu ternyata bukan jaminan bahwa anda atau organisasi anda akan sukses di masa depan.

Ini waktunya kita membuka mata dan pikiran kita selebar-lebarnya tentang trend yang akan terjadi di masa depan.

Stop learning about the past.

Stop solving the current problem.

Start to develop your organization to build the capability (and capacity) that they need in the future.

Di situlah pentingnya mempelajari consumer behavior, trend dan menganalisa data.

Be an open mind leader, be an extremely open-mind leader, be a radical open mind leader.

How to do that?

Profesor Andreas Raharso dari INSEAD merekomendasikan empat langkah di bawahan ini.

From Best Practices to Next Practices

Jangan lagi menganalisa apa yang dilakukan oleh perusahaan lain, biasanya dikenal sebagai best practices atau external benchmark.

Stop doing that. Why?

Because best practices hanya mengajarkan kita tentang apa yang perusahaan lain lakukan di masa lalu (dan sudah berhasil
diimplementsikan bertahun-tahun).

Ingat, apa yang berhasil mereka lakukan di masa lalu, tidak akan menjawab tantangan di masa depan.

Stop learning best practices.

Start to experiment next practices:

Identify your potential challenges in the future.

Prepare your organization for the future in term of capability and capacity.

Experiment the next practices.

You might fail or successfull, dont worry, learn from it, and improve again for the next “next practices”.

From Fear to Brave.

Memang masa depan itu penuh ketidakpastian.

Ibaratnya leader jaman dulu memimpin balapan mobil Paris Dakar, sudah jelas startnya di mana, finish-nya di mana dan jalur mana
yang harus dilalui.

Leader masa depan adalah memimpin pendakian ke puncak gunung tertinggi yang penuh berkabut tebal.

Jadi pada saat anak buahnya bertanya,
”Boss, ada apa di depan sana?”

Boss-nya juga tidak tahu jawabannya
(kan penuh kabut).

Ingat VUCA? Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambigue.

Banyak yang ambigue dan banyak yang tidak pasti.

Jadi wajar kalau anak buahnya gelisah dan ketakutan.

Leaders have to be able to ispire people by providing role model and good examples ….

It is true, it will be full of uncertainty and anxiety.

But it is not a reason to scare.

We have to be brave.

We have to make decision based on limited information that we have.

We have to experiment.

We have to dare to be successfull or make mistakes.

Either way, we learn, we improve and we move on…

From “Know-it-All” to “Learn-It-All”

Seperti kita diskusikan, dulu leader diharapkan untuk tahu semua, karena memang mereka expert di bidangnya.

Misalnya : Sales Director adalah yang paling jagoan dalam bidang Sales.

HR Director adalah paling jagoan
dalam hidang HR.

Finance Director adalah paling jagoan dalam bidang Finance …etc …etc

But the world has changed.
Fields of expertise are mixed together.

Seorang Finance Director juga harus expert dalam bidang sales.

Seorang HR Director harus jago data analytics.

Seorang Marketing Director harus jago digital and social media.

Terus kuncinya di mana dong?

Be open mind. Learn new things.

Jangan lagi berpikir “you-know-it-all”, harus ubah mindset ke “I-learn-them-all”.

The best idea adalah untuk duduk di meeting yang anda tidak mengerti subject-nya dan menjadi “orang yang paling bodoh di ruangan itu”.

Duduk, diam, dengarkan, camkan, dan setelah meeting tanyakan dan pelajari.

Dengan menjadi orang yang paling bodoh di ruangan itu, anda akan belajar banyak.

Phenomena yang tidak akan terjadi pada saat anda merasa menjadi yang paling pintar di ruangan itu.

From “We are under threats”
to “We-have-opportunities”

Memang masa depan penuh ketidakpastian, dan banyak yang berpikir itu adalah ancaman.

Selama itu kita anggap ancaman,
kita akan terus menerus hidup dalam
negative mindset dan tidak akan berkembang.

Padahal di balik semua krisis pasti ada kesempatan,
create your own opportunity behind every crisis that you face!

Dengan mindset itu, a radical open-minded leader can inspire the people for a transformation that they need in the future.

Stop learning about the past.

Stop solving the current problem.

Start to develop your organization to build the capability (and capacity) that they need in the future.

Dan untuk itu, coba kita terapkan empat rekomendasi ini:

1. From Best Practices to Next Practices

2. From Fear to Brave

3. From “Know-it-All” to “Learn-It-All”

4. From “We are under threats”
to “We-have-opportunities”

Terimakasih Prof, atau kami memanggilnya dengan akrab Om Andre, for the insighfull learning of that day.

Ini tulisan lain yg menarik.

*What makes Indonesians still living in the country if the country is so bad?*

Published on 2018
*Rod Pallister, Ph.D. Student Advisor*

I am struggling to understand this question. If the country (Indonesia) is so bad… compared to what? Also, if it’s so bad, why are so many foreigners either visiting here or choosing (like me) to live here?
Okay, let’s step back and compare Indonesia with other so-called better countries.

How about the US? Has anybody checked the news recently?
– Economy: Rupiah has been rising against the $US over the last 2 months and seems set to continue.
– % GDP: Indonesia average 5%+ over 15 years (see Dann Belamy’s answer below). US around 3% and falling.
– Crime: The Homicide (killing) rate in Indonesia is approximately only 10% of the US.
– Politics: Compare popularity… Trump and Jokowi, the Indonesian president is the overwhelming winner. Need we go on?

How about the UK?
– Economy: Struggling at around 1–2% GDP, and…
– Income: Middle class disposable income in decline.
– Brexit: Chaos…
– Politics: Prime Minister May likely to resign. Need we go on?

Okay, there are some countries which are great places to live, but seriously, most of my Indonesian students who have gone, or are going to study overseas, all plan to come back here after their studies. I have lived and worked in England, Scotland, Wales, Mexico, Greece, China, South Africa, Germany and Spain… but having lived in Indonesia for 17 years it ranks way above those countries. Okay, I’m biased because my wife is Indonesian, but… to assume Indonesia is bad? Really? Check out Rod Pallister’s answer to As an Indonesian, what do you want the rest of the world to know about your country?

After 17 years, I have observed many changes here in this beautiful country… but there are very few places anywhere where you can…
One: Drink coffee in a warung (small shop) for Rp2000 (US15c)
Two: Borrow some sugar from a neighbor at 5am.
Three: Ask a BCA customer service lady to fix a problem with your new phone… (took 1 hour).
Four: Ask someone for help after the car breaks down and they drive you 15 kilometers to your home and refuse any money.
Five: Your kid is sick and his teacher brings him home.
Six: At Idul Fitri, neighbors invite you to eat delicious (enak) food in their home.
Seven: Go out (jalan jalan) on your bike (motor) and almost get killed… a quick smile and an apology and he’s gone.
Eight: Swop phone numbers with 10 new friends while having a haircut.
Nine: A kid’s parent waits outside the classroom and invites you and your family to an amazing dinner.
Ten: Talk to a homeless woman underneath a flyover and she remembers you 5 years later.

The point I’m trying to make is that Indonesia is unique and a very special place to live. Whereas overseas, every day is often the same… yet here, leaving your home in the morning is like an adventure into the unknown… I’ve never been bored in 17 years.

Does Indonesia have it’s problems? Of course. Yet the country has come a long way relatively quickly, and the student of today can expect an exciting tomorrow.
We are asked what makes Indonesians live here (paraphrased). I would suggest that most Indonesians want to live here because quite simply… it’s their home. This unpredictable and crazy country is what makes Indonesia so special… it’s why many foreigners come to visit and stay. There’s a magic about Indonesia and Indonesians which is hard to explain… Muslim or Christian, rich or poor, straight or bencong… Who cares… we are all lucky… we are all blessed to live here… we are all brothers and sisters sharing in the new Indonesia. If Indonesia became a so-called developed country then it could be considered bad. But it’s not… it’s a work-in-progress which began in 1945, and hopefully Indonesians will never give up what makes them so special.
