How many times have you asked someone to do something like draw up a plan for such and such project?

Has everyone in your office been grafted so theres no more evolving? Lets say the party line is demanded of everyone, like a graft on a plant, so eventually everyones thinking the same way. New people are hired, chosen to be as similar to the old as possible, and then they get grafted. You have one person working in your office, one thinking head on many bodies. Nothing new is coming in, and no ones free to evolve. You are setting yourself up to die out, and heres why. The domestication of your office will dangerously compromise its fitness to compete.Look what happens when you do that to the apple. Apples dont grow true-to-seed, and there are potentially an infinite variety of apples possible. In the grocery we see the industry favorites--Golden Delicious, Winesap, Gala, Fuji, Red Delicious, but in an orchard, if trees were allowed to seed freely, you would see apples you would never know were apples. They could be purple, oval, lumpy, tasteless, so bitter you spit them out, soft and mushy, bright yellow, striped anything is possible in the seeding world.So, to ensure you get a Winesap, if thats what youre after, you graft Winesap onto a tree which couldve produced anything, and now will produce Winesaps. According to the fascinating book, The Botany of Desire, by Michael Pollan, grafting is endangering the domestic apple. In the wild a plant and its pests are continually coevolving in a dance of resistance and conquest that can have no ultimate victor. But coevolution ceases in an orchard of grafted trees, since they are genetically identical from generation to generation. The apple tree is no longer evolving, but the viruses, bacteria, fungi and insects who love it, are. The domestication of the apple has gone too far, to the point where the species fitness for life in nature (where it still has to live, after all!) has been dangerously compromised.Now in a business the thing to look out for is the competition, and in order to stay competitive, we need to keep evolving with them, right? Constant change typifies todays work environment, and if we dont allow our employees to be constantly changing, learning and growing, as well, not just grafted, the business will not fare well. If you plant the seeds and let people be who they are, think creatively and individually, work in the area of their strengths, and have opportunity for growth, youll have an organization much better able to compete, one that can keep coevolving in todays fast-changing environment.
