Friday’s Change Reflection Quote - Leadership of Change® - Successful Organisations Collaborate.

Antarctic Treaty System

"Change leaders must infuse collaboration across the organisation, by clearly articulating their change vision, eradicating silos and other implementation barriers"

👏 Happy Friday!

On this day, June 23rd, 1961, the Antarctic Treaty System came into force to regulate international relations regarding Antarctica, “all land and ice shelves south of 60°S latitude parallel.” Antarctica is the Earth’s only continent without a native human population. The Antarctic Treaty consists of a number of articles agreed upon by the twelve original signatories: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Chile, France, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, South Africa, the USSR, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The treaty preamble starts with “recognising that it is in the interest of all mankind that Antarctica shall continue for ever to be used exclusively for peaceful purposes and shall not become the scene or object of international discord.” The key to the treaty was the nations’ agreement to disagree on territorial claims. This agreement has been successful in preventing any military activity on the continent and has allowed for scientific research to be conducted in a peaceful environment.

✅ The Antarctic Treaty System was the result of collaboration among twelve countries with territorial claims or scientific interests in Antarctica. It highlights the importance of collaborative leadership, where multiple parties work together towards a common goal. Effective leaders understand the value of cooperation, encourage dialogue, and foster an inclusive decision-making process. Charles Darwin told us, “It is the long history of humankind (and animal kind, too) that those who learned to collaborate and improvise most effectively have prevailed.” Similarly, organisations with high levels of collaboration tend to be more successful. When implementing change, it is of paramount importance. Successful Organisations Collaborate.

"Change leaders must infuse collaboration across the organisation, by clearly articulating their change vision, eradicating silos and other implementation barriers"

👉 Collaboration is the primary factor contributing to highly successful organisations with good productivity and teamwork. Collaboration takes place in the workplace when leaders and employees work together to solve problems across different functions, departments, and management levels. It involves sharing resources and expertise; it means supporting fellow employees and working effectively and efficiently to deliver the organisation’s goals and objectives. There is only one organisation, and there are no silos. No individual’s ego or personal goals are more important than those of the organisation. Progressive organisations are increasingly realising the value of collaboration in both the physical and virtual workplaces. Collaborative organisations also tend to have lower staff turnover levels and higher profitability than businesses that don’t collaborate or those that have a silo mentality.

Have a fantastic weekend with the ones you love and care for, enjoy some fresh air, exercise, eat, drink and be happy.
