Personalized relationships for co-creation

Jason Rosoff is the guest of this episode. We start the interview with the pattern “Personalized relationships for co-creation” from the Cloud Native Transformations repository (https://www.cnpatterns.org/organization-culture/personalized-relationships-for-co-creation). Jason explains the difference between a complex and complicated problem and how psychological safety plays an essential role in innovation. He shares some examples of how some companies constraint the physical environment of their offices to create space for people to talk and share their ideas. During the interview, Jason explains how relationships can play an essential role for information to travel across a network, how organisations can enable it, and how managers and executives can read weak signals latent in their organisations.

Jason recommends the following resources:

  • Radical Candor from Kim Scott
  • Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter from Liz Wiseman and Greg McKeown
  • “You are not so smart” podcast (https://youarenotsosmart.com/podcast/)
