This Inspiring TED Talk Celebrates Imperfection as the Key to Success

This Inspiring TED Talk Celebrates Imperfection as the Key to Success | Advocacy and Community Engagement | Scoop.it

True innovation starts with ditching the ideal of perfection.

 

Studies have shown that self-doubt can potentially be a major hurdle to women's success. There's evidence we might not ask for a promotion, apply for a job we're absolutely qualified for or execute on a big idea because we're not as confident in our abilities as men.

Most girls are taught to avoid risk and failure. We're taught to smile pretty, play it safe, get all A's. Boys, on the other hand, are taught to play rough, swing high, crawl to the top of the monkey bars and then just jump off head first.

Are we still teaching our girls growing up to avoid risk and failure, while their counterparts are taught to play rough, swing high, and crawl to the top of the monkey bars just to jump off head first?  Are we perpetuating habits that stiffen women in their future success?

Why Collective Thinking Leads to the Best Collective Action

Why Collective Thinking Leads to the Best Collective Action | Advocacy and Community Engagement | Scoop.it
In this series, professionals explain how to lead in times of turmoil or growth. Read the posts, then write your own (use #HowILead in the body of your post).As Peter Drucker said years ago, stable times require excellence and good management. As we transition to a new age, our organizations need more; they need leadership. So managers shouldn’t just manage. Today they need to lead and think of themselves primarily as leaders rather than just managers. In the past, tinkering could do the trick.

How to Have a Coaching Conversation - Center for Creative Leadership | Advocacy and Community Engagement | Scoop.it
Coaching isn’t just something that specialized professionals do. In fact, some of the most powerful coaching experiences are informal exchanges in the hallways, cafeterias, offices and other workspaces in the course of everyday work.

Coaching conversations are an important means by which experiences are turned into learning, and nearly anyone can conduct them.

Healthcare Outcomes Tool PopulationMiner by Deloitte and Intermountain Launched

Healthcare Outcomes Tool PopulationMiner by Deloitte and Intermountain Launched | Advocacy and Community Engagement | Scoop.it

Deloitte has released a big-data analytics tool called PopulationMiner that it co-developed with Intermountain Healthcare, a provider organization based in Utah.

 

Big-data product PopulationMiner lets healthcare organizations and drug companies design hypotheses by looking at patient populations.

 

 

Instead of analyzing how a wide range of factors might have led to the outcomes of certain patients, PopulationMiner provides a broad population view that helps users decide what questions to ask about the relationships between treatments and outcomes.


PopulationMiner is the Real World Evidence analytics tool that provides descriptive views of entire populations in the context of outcomes of interest, helping life sciences manufacturers develop greater insight into relationships between drugs, disease, and treatments and physiological states of patient cohorts spanning multiple therapy areas and across more than a decade.

Deloitte and Intermountain are targeting both healthcare organizations and pharmaceutical companies with PopulationMiner. In addition, the partners hope that the analytics tool will help providers and drug companies work together more closely to develop new medications and improve the use of existing ones.

 

"By providing the same tool to the provider and to the life sciences company, they can start collaborating in a much more meaningful way than before," said Asif Dhar, health informatics managing director for Deloitte, in an interview with InformationWeek Healthcare.

 

The analytics can help pharmaceutical companies identify patient cohorts they'd like to target in studies, he noted. The press release about the product launch clarified this point: "PopulationMiner can also produce hypotheses across complex, comorbid patient populations and a pathway for conducting follow on research with the same populations."

Why You Need a Vacation Even More Than You Think

Why You Need a Vacation Even More Than You Think | Advocacy and Community Engagement | Scoop.it

There is a reason to take vacations. That reason is to simply stop.

This summer I took my first vacation in more than two years. It was not easy. Taking a vacation is a very specific conundrum for the impassioned small businessman. There is no good time to do it. There is no time when it seems there is not a Sword of Damocles looming over our high-risk, very personal business creations. There is no time when we do not need four times as many hours as there are in the workweek. It seems unimaginable to take a true existential furlough from our labor.

Workaholism is a habit. It is an addiction. It needs to be fought each day with tools like meditation, prayer, yoga, and exercise. But it also needs the occasional Big Break.
