Thinking our way out of the darkness

Wed, Sep 16, 2015|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , , , |Comments Off on Thinking our way out of the darkness

From Angie McArthur and Dr. Dawna Markova at Change This: The most significant gift our species brings to the world is our capacity to think. The most significant danger our species brings to the world is our inability to think with those who think differently. It is clear that to stay competitive in our global economy, we must learn how to think collaboratively and innovatively. But if you have ever sat through a mind-numbing meeting or tried to influence a colleague’s view on a project or had a recurring argument with a family member or struggled to participate in a community project, you have recognized that most of us actually don’t know how to think well together.

We take for granted that intelligence occurs within our own minds. We don’t realize that it also occurs between us. What keeps us from tapping into that intelligence and communicating effectively is that most of us don’t know how to think with people who think differently than we do. We habitually misread people and therefore miscommunicate with them. · Go to Thinking our way out of the darkness →

From strategy+business: In a recent New York Times column, “How to Get a Job at Google,” Thomas Friedman interviews Laszlo Bock, the company’s senior vice president for people operations (which seems to be Google-speak for talent management). Bock notes that because constant innovation is increasingly a group endeavor, people who succeed in the company “tend to be those with a lot of soft skills: leadership, humility, collaboration, adaptability, and loving to learn and re-learn.” · Go to How women leaders have transformed management →

Is music the key to success?

Tue, Oct 15, 2013|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , |Comments Off on Is music the key to success?

From NY Times: Multiple studies link music study to academic achievement. But what is it about serious music training that seems to correlate with outsize success in other fields?
The phenomenon extends beyond the math-music association. Strikingly, many high achievers told me music opened up the pathways to creative thinking. And their experiences suggest that music training sharpens other qualities: Collaboration. The ability to listen. A way of thinking that weaves together disparate ideas. The power to focus on the present and the future simultaneously. · Go to Is music the key to success? →

The future of 21st century science: Tearing down knowledge silos

Sun, Sep 30, 2012|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on The future of 21st century science: Tearing down knowledge silos

From Big Think: The interdisciplinary approach both to research and learning is starting to gain favor again because people are starting to recognize the dysfunction that is often apparent in large research institutions, but also because the small and nimble research labs are proving they have a method for speeding the pace and reducing the cost of discovery. · Go to The future of 21st century science: Tearing down knowledge silos →
