Ever noticed how certain schooling fishes move away in a highly synchronized manner when disturbed?
It’s a remarkable phenomenon called “behavioral cascade”, and it has perplexed biologists for long. As in – how does every fish in the group know what direction to take? And how is this communicated and processed between them in a matter of microseconds?
The answer is this: Certain species of fishes (and birds) function as a closely-knit structure to heighten sensitivity. This allows them to act and respond instantaneously as a “collective brain”.
Why am I taking about this?
There’s a lot we can learn from this phenomenon, especially in transforming the way our organizations are structured.
The closer and more synchronized your employees are to their collective goals, the more agile your organization becomes in responding to any external stimuli or disruption.
This is essentially the driving philosophy behind Human Experience Management (HXM). HXM helps us build and sustain a workforce that’s ever resilient and ready to respond.
