100 Websites You Should Know and Use (updated!) | TED Blog

100 Websites You Should Know and Use (updated!) | TED Blog | Always learning | Scoop.it

posted by Jessica Gross

 

"In the spring of 2007, Julius Wiedemann, editor in charge at Taschen GmbH, gave a legendary TED University talk: an ultra-fast-moving ride through the “100 websites you should know and use.” Six years later, it remains one of the most viewed TED blog posts ever. Time for an update? We think so. Below, the 2013 edition of the 100 websites to put on your radar and in your browser.

 

"To see the original list, click here. While most of these sites are still going strong and remain wonderful resources, we’ve crossed out any that are no longer functioning. And because there are so many amazing resources out there, please add your own ideas in the comments. Happy surfing!"

Eduction is included as one of the 6 categories on the 2013 list; in 2007 is wasn't. We're making progress, at least with the TED crowd!

What is The Essence of Building Trust

What is The Essence of Building Trust | Always learning | Scoop.it
Being able to build trust is regarded as a crucial element of successful leadership. Especially in today’s globalized business world with its high rate of change and its cross-cultural challenges.

 

What is trustworthiness?’ How can we define it?

 

3 ingredients Onora O’Neill uses to define trustworthiness: 

 

1)   Reliability

 

Do what you say you would do. Stick to agreements. Show your commitment by your actions.

 

2)   Competence

 

Be competent in the matters at stake. Know your strengths and weaknesses, and be open about it. Don’t overestimate your competence.

 

3)   Honesty

 

Tell the truth. Don’t lie. Distinguish fact from perception.

 

These three ingredients provide a powerful checklist for leaders and their teams. It can facilitate an open discussion with each other about the perceived level of trustworthiness and its effect on mutual trust. And be careful: for leaders of cross-cultural teams it is important to be sensitive to the different ways these three elements can be perceived across cultures

This Will Be The #1 Business Skill Of The Next 5 Years | Linked In

This Will Be The #1 Business Skill Of The Next 5 Years | Linked In | Always learning | Scoop.it

by Shane Snow

 

"Every few minutes, a new buzzword rips through the business world, skids, gets a few quick books written on it, and ends up in a pile of tired terms next to "synergy." Today, one of the biggest corporate buzzwords is "storytelling." Marketers are obsessed with storytelling, and conference panels on the subject lately have fewer empty seats than a Bieber concert.

 

"Funny thing is, storytelling has been the buzzword off and on since advertising became a thing. It's always coming out of the buzzword pile because, at the end of the day, it's a timeless skill. Stories have been an essential driver of change throughout human history. For good and for ill.

 

"And now more than ever, businesses, workers, and leaders have opportunities to stand out, spread messages, and make change through storytelling.

 

"Good stories surprise us. They have compelling characters. They make us think, make us feel. They stick in our minds and help us remember ideas and concepts in a way that numbers and text on a slide with a bar graph don't."

The Founder of Khan Academy on How to Blend the Virtual with the Physical: Scientific American

The Founder of Khan Academy on How to Blend the Virtual with the Physical: Scientific American | Always learning | Scoop.it

by Salman Kahn

 

"Whenever people imagine virtual anything, they immediately pit it against its physical counterpart—Amazon versus physical book stores, Wikipedia versus physical encyclopedias. They assume that the virtual will replace the physical with something cheaper, faster and more efficient. In education, however, the virtual will create a very different type of disruption. We should not aim to replace the physical classroom. Instead we have an opportunity to blend the virtual with the physical and reimagine education entirely."
