Metacognition: The Skill Every Global Leader Needs

Metacognition: The Skill Every Global Leader Needs | Business change | Scoop.it

The increasingly international nature of business means leaders need new skills to get the full potential of teams and networks of people from a variety of cultural backgrounds. At the NeuroLeadership Summit being held in New York this week, top executives from Citibank, the American Management Association, and American University joined me on a panel to explore these new skills — skills including handling complexity, communicating virtually, and working across cultures.

 

(David) It's a bit of a mouthful; as a term, but the insight is excellent!

Journal Nature Special: Stress and Resilience

Journal Nature Special: Stress and Resilience | Business change | Scoop.it

Stress can take many forms, from a backlog of e-mails to the trauma of war. And if stress is particularly acute or prolonged, it can damage the mind, triggering conditions from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder. Now researchers are getting to grips with how stress can alter the biology of the brain, and tip a mind into illness. Here, Nature takes a look at what they have learned so far about the impacts of adversity - and the secrets of resilience.

 

This is a broad range of articles on the nature of stress and resilience.  Highly recommended for the serious resilience inquirers.

Business Model Innovation – an introduction

Business Model Innovation – an introduction | Business change | Scoop.it

So I recently came across a book on Amazon that immediately piqued my interest. That book is Business Model Generation, by Alexander Osterwalder. This is one of the most unique and interesting books and approaches I’ve come across in a long while.

 

Business Model Generation is a recent addition to the long line of books on business model innovation in the face of disruptive business change. Geoffrey Moore, Clayton Christensen, Michael Porter, the Balanced Scorecard and Strategy Maps, and others are part of this long tradition. But this book is very special IMO. And the primary reason for its uniqueness is its use of visual thinking.

The Habit Change Cheatsheet: 29 Ways to Successfully Ingrain a Behavior

The Habit Change Cheatsheet: 29 Ways to Successfully Ingrain a Behavior...

 

Our daily lives are often a series of habits played out through the day, a trammeled existence fettered by the slow accretion of our previous actions.

 

But habits can be changed, as difficult as that may seem sometimes.

 

I’m a living example: in tiny, almost infinitesimal steps, I’ve changed a laundry list of habits. Quit smoking, stopped impulse spending, got out of debt, began running and waking early and eating healthier and becoming frugal and simplifying my life and becoming organized and focused and productive, ran three marathons and a couple of triathlons, started a few successful blogs, eliminated my debt … you get the picture.

 

It’s possible.

 

And while I’ve written about habit change many times over the course of the life of Zen Habits, today I thought I’d put the best tips all together in one cheatsheet, for those new to the blog and for those who could use the reminders.

Understanding human dynamics - status and prestige hierarchies.

Understanding human dynamics - status and prestige hierarchies. | Business change | Scoop.it

As a facilitator, people often comment on “safety” in group settings. Most group work I have done in my career has been safe, relatively speaking. There may have been the possibility of retaliatory actions for speaking up, workplace bullying or general boorish behaviour, but I have hardly ever (!) worked in spaces where real physical safety was an issue.

Still, the issue of safety and fear comes up surprisingly often, and this article at the edge.org gave me a few insights about this problem.

This article looks to ancient human history to understand some of these dynamics and it begins by looking at two kinds of status in humans: dominance and prestige. In dominance hierarchies we are afraid of the higher status person and there is deference and backing away. In prestige hierarchies we are drawn to the higher status person because they have information that can help us survive.
