No one would argue against the case that education has been constructed following influence from an industrialised world. The inherited and evolved infrastructures we have come to rely on require a command and control approach to perpetuate the 'Them and Us'. It is this structure that provides social positioning and thus power to leaders through fears learned in a world that supports a notion of hierarchical deference, (no one can deny that), but isn't it also the case that those leaving the education system (currently designed to reflect industrialised methods of control), are those subsequently employed in organisations. This cycle creates the next generation of people who's expectations are matched not only to historic patterns of organisational structure and control, but to their own 1st hand experience of that structure and control - ensuring it remains the norm?
I think this is known as a vicious circle. So how do we break it?
Duxinaroe was established to tackle this as our founder shares Sir Ken's passion for improvement, but in the world of organisational leadership. To stop children growing into adults who conform to the norms evolved over time and to stop adults educating children and each other within the self imposed (Keynesian economic) boundary, we all need to know more about 'Human Factors'. If leaders, be they parents, teachers, bosses or politicians, don't understand people in scientific detail, they can't possibly be expected to create the conditions in which people can perform at their best and achieve their in-born potential (educated out of them in the current format) and thus achieve more, in smarter and faster ways, when working together in a private or public organisation.
The simple fact of the matter is, if the individuals who make up the masses are not educated to a higher level of understanding, so they can rationally, if not intuitively (prior to emotional environmental experience and related 4 phase imprinting through neurogenesis) understand 'What works' at a human level, they will respond and react to the world, their reports and their offspring in the way they 'learned to' via their own experience. The road away from 'learned and inherited behaviours' is education, but not just to children, also to adults in business.
While Sir Ken tackles this at kindergarten to college levels, we will continue to help leaders in organisations and parents tackle the same barriers to performance. Between us, we may see a positive change that enhances the human race yet. It's good to be a Dux!
