[MUSIC] Welcome to our third MOOC, Leading Organizations of our Inspirational Leadership Specialization. What do we mean by organization in this MOOC, and how does it refer to you in the work you have done this far? To answer this question, I will start by asking you a preliminary question. What is an organization for you? You can answer this question in your SR journal. Organization comes from the Greek organon, which means organ. An organ in anatomy is a collection of tissues joined in a structural unit to serve a common function. Very basically, an organization is indeed something that is organized and by extension, it is a group of persons organized for some end with a common goal or common work. Like a company or an association, for example. In this third MOOC, we will address organizations as groups of persons that have something in common. As in a company where people work together, or a team, an association where people share the same goals. Or even a family, where people are linked by blood or parenthood. So now, we will look at what makes such a group of people function and how you as a savoir relier leader can help transform any organization into a savoir relier organization. Answering the following questions, what is the optimal structure to foster the savoir relier organization? And how does savoir relier drive organizational or team performance? In addressing these questions, we're moving from the individual dimension of savoir relier to its organizational and social dimensions. An organization needs structure on which to build an identity to generate performance and sustainable growth. It anchors its identity and values in the people it recruits. It develops itself in a spirit of collaboration, trust and confidence, with relationality. I'll explain this soon, don't worry. The capacity of savoir relier organizations to observe and work with the tensions of globalization, change, and complexity is characteristic of the relational force that drives its people and gives them freedom and autonomy to take initiatives and innovate, as we will see later in this module. Now do you remember the three attributes identified to characterize a savoir relier leader? Yes. Genuine, generous, and generative. As a reminder, the three characteristics of the savoir relier leader, or the 3G, is a virtuous circle of relationships that can be described with transparency and authenticity for genuine. Giving and caring for generous and resilience and innovation for generative. And now, you're going to see and experience how the 3G also apply to the savoir relier organization. As a preview and in line with what you have practiced so far in specialization, this is what this MOOC will involve. First, the genuine dimension, our first module, will prove the need for organization to develop self awareness and confidence through its history and to create open and fluid channels of communication. By the end of this first module, and with the help of feedbacks from leaders in different environments, you will use history and communication to better perform the balance between the need for structure and the need for initiative in making a group effective. Second, the second module, the generous dimension will embed diversity in the structure of the organization and encourage collaboration and trust through networks. With this module, we'll master your capacity to embrace change and use diversity and differences to effectively and sustainably facilitate the development and growth of a group or company project. Thanks to quality relationships. Finally, the generative dimension with work on resilience, our third module, will foster a type of innovation that builds sense, and moves value from organization to society introducing sustainable development and responsibility as an integral component of organizational strategy. This is our first, our last, sorry, and fourth module. By the end of module three, you will know how to apply resilience to better manage crisis and conflict inside groups and companies by facilitating innovation. And with Module 4, you will build a generative environment to foster dynamics of positive change that creates sense at a group level and in complex settings. You will be able to use metaphors and take high bridge view on problems and issues thanks to the savoir relier methodology. For each of the 3Gs, you will be exposed to testimonies from the CEOs of different companies or groups, including some you have met in our previous MOOCs. Coursera with Daphne Koller, BlaBlaCar with Frédéric Mazzella, Poilâne with Apollonia Poilâne, Publicis with Maurice Lévy, and Orange with Stéphane Richard. They will share with you as we move along this MOOC some of their stories and insights, so you can see how Savoir Relier applies in their practice of leadership. But for now, let us move on with our different forms of organizations and how you can identify which one works best for you.
