How the Brain Really Works

How the Brain Really Works | GWTNext -GLOBAL WORKFORCE TRANSFORMATION - PAVING THE TRAIL TO THE FUTURE. | Scoop.it
New techniques are letting researchers look at the activity of the whole brain at once. Most brain areas multitask, and the brain is dynamic. It can respond differently to the same events in different times and circumstances.
Laura Goodrich's insight:

"Response patterns of most brain areas changed when people changed the focus of their attention. Something as ineffable as where you focus your attention can make your whole brain work differently."

With an MBA from Wharton, a bunch of high profile marketing gigs on his resume, and a bit of gray hair to show he’s got experience, Brian Kardon is what people think of as a typical Chief Marketing Officer.
Laura Goodrich's insight:

A great example of personal transformation in the Shift Age. 

Laura


"I decided just to roll up my sleeves and ask people on my team, 'How did you do that?' I had a bunch of people in their 20s and I would just sit next to them and say, 'Tell me how you did that. How did you push that out there?' or 'What are those social sharing links? How did you put that on there?' I asked how HTML works and what Java script is.”

Millennial Myth Busting

Millennial Myth Busting | GWTNext -GLOBAL WORKFORCE TRANSFORMATION - PAVING THE TRAIL TO THE FUTURE. | Scoop.it
By Ann Clark Listing complaints about the younger generation is not a new pastime.
Laura Goodrich's insight:

A disconnect between perception and reality has been the downfall of many a good relationship."     
"Understanding and accepting employees on a one-on-one basis to identify individual needs, goals and expectations is not a new tactic. It is a rule of successful business.

Employees are more than a representation of what year they happen to have been born in. Understanding employees individually will help diffuse generational conflict and miscommunication. And it is the Millennial who may bring fresh eyes and a unique perspective to the future of any business.

And, if not, we can all rely on the fact that they will grow up. After all, we did."

It doesn't matter where you are in the world, there are communities to be built and strengthened. | GWTNext -GLOBAL WORKFORCE TRANSFORMATION - PAVING THE TRAIL TO THE FUTURE. | Scoop.it
It doesn't matter where you are in the world, there are communities to be built and strengthened. From Kansas City to Bangladesh, Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation vice president of entrepreneurship Thom Ruhe is spreading the message.
Laura Goodrich's insight:

Nothing really good comes easily!  I came to know and respect the passion and work of Sohael Chowdhury sereral years back!  He continues to inspire me, driving the importance of community, entreprenuerism and education in a land that does not make it easy for him. He is brave. He is bold. And his cause is noble!   Laura Goodrich


Sohael Chowdhury, founder of the Younger Entrepreneurs and Leaders League.

Chowdhury has taken the reins of championing entrepreneurship in Bangladesh, where he's battled political restraints to forward the cause despite being arrested and detained for his efforts. Ruhe initially met him about two years ago at a Global Entrepreneurship Week event and came away impressed with his passion. The two of them ran into each other this year, when Chowdhury signed on as a Bangladesh delegate for the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC)—an interdisciplinary gathering of startup champions from around the world co-hosted by the Foundation—despite the possibility of being detained again.

Vivek Wadhwa: Why I Don’t Advise Startups to Hire M.B.A.s

Vivek Wadhwa: Why I Don’t Advise Startups to Hire M.B.A.s | GWTNext -GLOBAL WORKFORCE TRANSFORMATION - PAVING THE TRAIL TO THE FUTURE. | Scoop.it
M.B.A.s tend to undergo a harsh period of adjustment from the elite world of business schools to the rough-and-tumble world of startups, says The Accelerators mentor Vivek Wadhwa.
Laura Goodrich's insight:

This will definitely ruffle some feathers!  Laura
"I no longer advise startups to hire M.B.A.s and I discourage students who want to become entrepreneurs from doing an M.B.A.

That’s because I have seen a growing mismatch between the skills that business schools teach and what fast-paced startups require. And corporate management isn’t the best path to entrepreneurship anymore—the best way is to work for a startup." 

Vivek Wadhwa 
Wadhwa oversees the academic programs at Singularity University, which educates a select group of leaders about the exponentially growing technologies that are soon going to change our world.  These advances—in fields such as robotics, A.I., computing, synthetic biology, 3D printing, medicine, and nanomaterials—are making it possible for small teams to do what was once possible only for governments and large corporations to do: solve the grand challenges in education, water, food, shelter, health, and security.

What's Better for Business: Logic or Emotion? Answers From Neuroscience - Forbes

What's Better for Business: Logic or Emotion? Answers From Neuroscience - Forbes | GWTNext -GLOBAL WORKFORCE TRANSFORMATION - PAVING THE TRAIL TO THE FUTURE. | Scoop.it
Part 1 of a series on neuroscience and innovation Humans are animals.  While we like to think we're captains of our destiny, we're far more driven by instinct than we know.  In many ways, we’re just glorified apes, even in business.

Via David Hain
Laura Goodrich's insight:

"Without emotion, we are biologically incapable of making decisions. Logic is often the last step in the process.  The conscious intellectual brain steps in to produce a rational backstory to justify impulses generated in the murky corners of the unconscious mind." Neuroscience business expert Janet Crawford


"Our rational minds represent a very small layer floating atop a vast well of unconscious drivers. Business leaders who understand biological programming and can leverage it possess an enormous advantage." Neuroscience business expert Janet Crawford

Yes, a blend of both is powerful Tom Wojick
Cris Popp's curator insight, April 4, 2013 6:26 PM

I think you do better in life, and at work, if you accept that better than 85% of our behaviours are driven by unconscious drivers.  You just have to look at politics to see that often, decisions are made first, and justified afterwards.  This is fine when you're making a decision just for yourself – but if you're making decisions that affect others, they need to be made from a more rational basis.
This is especially the case, when through technology, a leader can have a much longer lever of control and reach over others.  That reach ranges from beiong as small as authority over someone elses job adn job happiness, all the way to the leaders of North Korea and the nuclear threat they wield over millions of people.
This is why, leaders especially, need to be aware of their own motives, and drivers, and to be humble about their perspective.  Their decsions may be perfectly rational - they need to accept they may not.  When I judge leaders, this capacity is one of the most important factors that I use.

Cris Popp's comment, August 29, 2013 6:48 PM
I agree Tom, it's about how to use both, And how to use each to develop the other. For example , testing your gut feel to see how accurate it is.

Do You Screen for Inter-cultural Adaptability?

Do You Screen for Inter-cultural Adaptability? | GWTNext -GLOBAL WORKFORCE TRANSFORMATION - PAVING THE TRAIL TO THE FUTURE. | Scoop.it
Laura Goodrich's insight:

"There is a mood shift going as employers become more aware of the value of inter-cultural adaptability in new recruits. This should serve as a sign to recruiters and employers that there is huge value in screening more formally for inter-cultural adaptability and the time may be coming to start making more formal assessments of inter-cultural adaptability if you are to build an organization that is well equipped to cope and thrive within our globally integrated business world now and into the future."
