Forget IDEO's T-shaped Thinkers - enter "Meta" | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
If you follow the latest in business thinking, you would have come across the popular - or should I say "populist" - Design Thinking (DT) movement. You might have even heard of IDEO. They are the company that turned the rather loose notion of business as "art" into a profitable consulting model. You've probably heard of so called "T-shaped thinkers". According to Tim Brown and others at IDEO, T-shaped thinkers are the new Da Vincis. They master both the ability to t

Why All Managers Must Be Leaders

Why All Managers Must Be Leaders | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Anyone within an organization has the potential to become a leader, but managers must be leaders. In schools and in our organizations we have been taught and conditioned to believe that managers and leaders are two separate people which is quite a harmful assumption. As a result we have managers [...]

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Very much so... I would say, they are both, managers & leaders... they all need to organise, operate systems, processes + people... The proportion is of course varies wildly but those who have people reporting to them, must have both skills... Mintzberg (one of my most beloved "consultant"...) always said that...:-)))

Facebook’s empathy team idea is a plainly cynical concoction

Facebook’s empathy team idea is a plainly cynical concoction | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Facebook’s recent ‘emotional awakening’ likely to fall flat, writes Lucy Kellaway

 

The only proper role for empathy in business is in the office, and even then it is needed only in exceptional circumstances. When we are struck by illness, bereavement, divorce or are in periods of miscellaneous emotional upheaval, we may need empathy from our colleagues.

 

When I have occasionally pitched up at work ravaged by life, a small injection of empathy from a workmate makes me feel not only vastly better, but fonder of my employer. The times when I have received nothing of the sort, I have been left feeling even more miserable.

Infamous study of humanity's 'dark side' may actually show how to keep it at bay

Infamous study of humanity's 'dark side' may actually show how to keep it at bay | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

In a famous research study Milgram (in 1961) had set up a test situation (with 800 volumteers) where the teacher (T) separated from the learner (L) was told that he  could admistere an increasing voltage electroshock to the learner (L) when the learner was giving a wrong answer to the actual question (the teacher was told that the learner was told about this will happen but in reality there was no real electroshock given (800 volunteers chosen for the role of  teacher were misled while the learners were mainly actors, people who knew the reality). The experimenter (E) was in the same room as the teacher and made notes and played and authority figure's role  to instruct the "teacher" to administer the shock with an increasing intensity (up to 450! volt...).

 

The famous study report said that the great majority of the study subjects with more or less conformity showed high level of obedience (despite all of the evident ethical considerations) and gone through up to highest punishment of administering the maximum 450 volt despite even of the very realistic circumstances created  (for each shock an increasingly panicky sound-sample was hearable to the study subjects to elevate the reality feeling of the test situation).


The results were always used to demonstrate that when ethical considerations and authority  are challenge each other in most cases the authority's instructions prevail (one of the trigger to make at that time this research was to find out how the nazis could be followed by so many people). Also, some of the most recent examples when otherwise normal people in a stressful situation are doing things for order which are way below of any ethical standard (latest are those investigations...) are still explained partly by this study, saying that the homo sapiens has this dark side...

 

Other recent studies on the recordings of the original Milgram study come to other conclusions on the same set of data. They say - on the base of mainly the disobedients ' recordings that what happened were much more complicated a phenomenon than what the original study has emphasized. Everybody - even the obedients - had tried to come out from the stressful situation but actually the disobedients with much more effectively... the attached article is about the main fatures of the new analysis...

How To Imagine The Future(s) Of Your Business

How To Imagine The Future(s) Of Your Business | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Can seeing the future - of the economy, your company, the science world - be a skill anyone can learn?

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Good points... e.g. now every training, every coaching session starts with the solicitation of the trainee/coachee to imagine how it will work in the future, what is the desired state, and i'ts - in its basic concepts - OK because "no wind is useful to a captain of a ship who does not know where he wants to go..." OK, we know well this tune... Why then still that it might be so hard to make it for not a few people especially in a business setting (beyond a very general statement that "yes, of course, everything will go well by then...") Then, the reaction of the trainers, coaches are sometimes incomprehension and they might see in this the "resistance" of the trainee/coachee in the process...

 

Well, let's face it, it happens more than once... this article tries to propose some practical elements how to turbo up the imegination in such a situation... Good...:-))

more...
Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, January 11, 11:31 PM

It isn’t enough to simply imagine the future. The future should include people with emotional stories. That’s what gives it a real-world context. There are many levels of detail you might think about. Consider at least the following three:

  1. WORLD VIEW. This is where we explain what the world we have imagined would actually look like. These are usually broad generalizations about what the future world is about. Is it utopian? Is it dystopian? Is there peace or war? What is the overall setting and mood of this world?


  2. SYSTEM VIEW. Here, we go even deeper, describing how the future world plays out in terms of political, social, ethnic, religious, and economic systems. It is not enough to just imagine a future world; we need to have some idea, albeit imaginary, of how the world might work in those dimensions.


  3. INTERACTION VIEW. This is the most emotional and personal level. Once we have imagined the world and described how it works, we now need to place a person in that world and tell a story about him. What does that person care about, what objects does he interact with, what does it mean to have a daily routine? For a full effect, create artifacts, sounds, and videos of what it means for that person to live in that world.
