The networked organization

I'm reminded with this picture about diversity in a company. Too few leaders or managers recognize or promote diversity. We fail to see that culture, skills, personalities all play in the mix and sometimes we are too eager to herd everyone in the same direction and expect everyone to behave the same way. The winding path of the pebbles is what the responsible leader must do, weaving his way through the layers of the organization. Another arrangement would be to have the leadership at the center and all the other layers as concentric circles but this is better because it demands the leader to walk the floor to, to meet the people on their terms and to intertwining them into the fabric of the company.
