Ten Tips for Building Stronger Networks in Work and Life

Ten Tips for Building Stronger Networks in Work and Life | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Most people understand that to be successful, they need to network. But actually going out and doing it is another matter. People “are daunted by the task and believe it requires inauthentic, uncomfortable behavior and is an activity that is inconsistent with focusing on job performance,” says Jeffrey Pfeffer, a Stanford professor of organizational behavior, who covers the subject of networking as part of his Paths to Power elective course. Too often, he says, people view networking “as something that ‘is not them’ or that they could not see themselves doing.”

New Study Shows Humans Are on Autopilot Nearly Half the Time

New Study Shows Humans Are on Autopilot Nearly Half the Time | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Humans are mentally checked out, unhappily, nearly half the time.

 

"Farb and his colleagues worked out a way to study how human beings experience their own moment-to-moment experience. They discovered that people have two distinct ways of interacting with the world, using two different sets of networks. One network for experiencing your experience involves what is called the "default network", which includes regions of the medial prefrontal cortex, along with memory regions such as the hippocampus. This network is called default because it becomes active when not much else is happening, and you think about yourself. If you are sitting on the edge of a jetty in summer, a nice breeze blowing in your hair and a cold beer in your hand, instead of taking in the beautiful day you might find yourself thinking about what to cook for dinner tonight, and whether you will make a mess of the meal to the amusement of your partner. This is your default network in action. It's the network involved in planning, daydreaming and ruminating."

It is work done by Daniel Gilbert at Harvard so it should have some traction. And, we think wide spread use of digital technology will change this?
