Our Self-Inflicted Complexity

Our Self-Inflicted Complexity | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Our ability to make progress against large-scale problems requires that we figure out how to tackle inter-domain complexity writes Roger Martin. The HBR blog post is part of a series of perspectives on complexity leading up to this year's Global Drucker Forum.

Good blog and great suggestions from Kenneth.  Figuring this out and socialising the skills is a great 21st Century challenge!

luiy's curator insight, January 17, 2014 9:29 AM

My own clan — the economists — is particularly inclined in this direction. There are a thousand economists working on partial equilibrium problems for every one working on a general equilibrium problem. This is despite the fact that no one would contest that general equilibrium clarity is the most valuable knowledge by far. Why? Because it is really difficult to specify any general equilibrium cause-and-effect relationships.

 

Instead, most of the guns deployed in modern knowledge advancement are aimed at narrow problems for which the cause-and-effect relationship is specified with the famous “all other things being equal” proviso. Each narrow knowledge domain develops analytical tool-sets that deepen the narrow knowledge domain. Each narrow domain develops ever more algorithmic knowledge, and those developing the knowledge are extremely confident that they are right because they are so specialized within their own domain. The liver expert is completely confident that he or she is correct even if it is the interaction with another condition that threatens your health most.

This approach has created another kind of complexity: inter-domain complexity. Every field is segmented into multiple domains, each with deep algorithmic knowledge, specialized tools, and experts in the domain who think they are absolutely right. And they are indeed right, as long as we ignore the reality of detail complexity.

Fun for students to email their learning aims at the beginning of a semster/term and then by mid-semester/term checking if they achieved them or not, and what they need to do to achieve success. 

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, September 3, 2013 7:54 PM

This would be a great tool for RE and other courses where students set goals... not to mention it is a really fun idea :)

The #1 Reason Leadership Development Fails

The #1 Reason Leadership Development Fails | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Over the years, I’ve observed just about every type of leadership development program on the planet. And the sad thing is, most of them don’t even come close to accomplishing what they were designed to do – build better leaders.

Shelby Stephens's curator insight, September 3, 2013 6:27 PM

"You don’t train leaders you develop them," this article suggests that leaders are not made/ trained they are developed. Attempting to train a leader is why most leadership workshops fail. 

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 4, 2013 10:32 AM

"Training (or the lack of) is indeed the #1 reason leadership development fails."


"You don’t train leaders you develop them. Training focuses on best practices, while development focuses on next practices."

Miklos Szilagyi's comment, August 29, 2013 12:43 PM
I agree with the main points in this post like 'Don't manage people, lead people', like 'Lead people through inspiration', like Inspiration creates problem-solvers', like Problem solvers use question' but I was eagerly waited for the promised in the title, the 'Qoaching questions that produce results' and what I received? 'What are you going to do about that problem you have'... Now, I'm just disappointed... this question clearly shows a flat thinking and, sorry, no creativity... If I would receive this question I would tell the guy: 'Look, therefore I've come here to you, see?' If you are not searching first what his/her goal would be, what resources he/she has, what exceptions are there when the problem is no so serious, what instances are there when the hoped-for outcome is already - at least in a tiny portion - happening, only hitting the ball directly back to the court of the client, well, then, it's perhaps not the most useful question and approach...
Vicky Stanton's curator insight, August 29, 2013 1:00 PM

Coaching maintains the coachee always has the answer so what a great question to use.
