Deeply fortifying: How to establish high quality connections

Deeply fortifying: How to establish high quality connections | Change Management Resources | Scoop.it
Disrespectful behaviour and their effects...can be changed by establishing what Dr. Dutton calls “high quality connections ”or HQCs for short.

What a way to look at a tipping point for behavioral change, from abundance instead of from deficiency.

According to researcher Jane Dutton from the University of Michigan, disrespectful engagement depletes energy and thus motivation and commitment and may lead to burnout.

In the journal Stanford Social Innovation Review, she illustrates some cases of disrespectful behaviour and their effects, and then outlines how such behaviours can be changed by establishing what she calls “high quality connections”.

These pathways are (excerpted):
  • Respectful engagement: being there ...and really listening.
  • Task enabling: help another person being successful, ...find out what other person’s goals are.
  • Building trust: making the first step that signals that you are ...trustworthy
  • Playing: inviting the other person for a kind of game
 
Deb Nystrom, REVELN's insight:

The cut-e ScienceBlog has captured a helpful summary of Professor Jane Dutton's 4 minute video clip and her journal article on what high quality connections are, why they are worth striving for, and the pathways to building them.

Living in An Interconnected Society - The Good, the Bad & the Potential, Tiffany Shlain

Tiffany Shlain, founder of the Webby Awards, through video illustrates today's interconnected society at The Economist's 2012 event in San Francisco.

As we become more connected, we'll be able to see the cause and effect of our actions in real time.

What does it mean to live in a connected world? How is it changing us, our culture and the planet?

 

Her film "Connected"  illustrates:

  

Technology is changing the way we connect with people around us.   ...We have accumulated so much knowledge, yet we have trouble seeing the bigger picture. Perhaps it is time to declare our interdependence.

 

_____________________________

   

It's the beginning of a participatory revolution.

_____________________________


Close to 2 billion people on-line with 5 billion cell phones. It's the beginning of a participatory revolution. Ideas are free to interact, cross pollinate, creating hybrid perspectives all over the world.

 

As we become more connected, we'll be able to see the cause and effect of our actions in real time. ...Once we understand the supply chains and see their results, we'll be more thoughtful about our behavior.

 

Tiffany Shlain favorite quote:  "Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even further."

Thanks for sharing this. I took an online course from Howard Rheingold, who is in this film a few times.

Thank you for the rescoops. I really like this quote:
"Go as far as you can see and when you get there. you'll be able to see even farther"
