Faith, Science & Rightshifting - a conversation about reciprocity

A session at Lean Agile Scotland

Saturday 22nd September, 2012

12:15pm to 1:00pm (GMT)

Everyone is familiar with some variant of the Golden rule: "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." . This maxim is almost universally found in schools of faith and ethical tradition and often repeated but does it really matter? This aim of this session is to put the golden rule at the center of organizational effectiveness! Science is increasingly finding that in general humans are hard-wired for fairness, to the point that will incur personal loss to punish what is considered unjust behavior. Proof is also appearing that sharing, not only is caring, but at a deep level is one few paths to sustainable happiness. Given these two, the wisdom of old & the validated supported claims of modern science, is there a implication for effective organizations act & function? The answer is yes , and there's an easy to understand model of organizational effectiveness & a movement built around it that explains why: Rightshifting. The session will first go through the golden rule from a few different angles & hopefully the kind audience will contribute their own variants. Secondly I'll talk a slight bit about some of the current research around fairness running through some experiments and if time allows (and dry-runs are successful) incorporate a short demonstration. Lastly I'll connect these two and show how they relate to a highly rightshifted synergistic pattern of organizational behavior (coincidentally the space occupied by lean & agile thinking).
