New Economy thinking turns the question of possession on its head. It pushes us to examine the relationship between what we have and what we need. It asks us to rethink the boundaries of ownership, participation and cooperation. It reminds us that we don’t need to own everything in order to benefit from it; that’s why we invented public parks, public libraries and public schools. After all, we are not a nation of hermits; we form a thousand kinds of families and communities, associations and businesses to do things together. This is smart, sane and efficient.
The New Economy offers enormous hope because it is a blend of the best thinking and values from the past and the future. One of its central principles is cooperation.
This presentation explores the value of storytelling to attract people to your cause and compel them to get involved, to donate, to volunteer, to participate. I

"But how do you KNOW they'll do it, if we don't put it in the contract?" I looked at him assuredly, "because they told me they would." "But what if they DON'T?" "If they don't do what they say, w
In the end collaborations are founded on trust - some great groundrules here.

As you’ll know from my earlier posts, I firmly believe in following your intuition, especially in relation to the most important decisions in your life. When I joined Burberry in 2006, it was not without a lot of reflection – I had an incredible role and a fantastic team in New York, and family life was finally beginning to show some semblance of balance. The idea of uprooting our lives to move to London demanded a lot of soul searching and over months of consideration I thought it over so much I realized I was in danger of losing touch with how I truly felt about the opportunity. In the final analysis I realized my truest guide would be my intuition – which told me I would have the greatest partner in Christopher Bailey and that together we could build the company we always dreamed of working for.
Transition in real time at Burberry.
"The innovative work structures required for complex economies need to be supported by skilled workers with the right tools. We know that sharing complex knowledge requires strong interpersonal relationships, with shared values, concepts, and mutual trust.
But discovering innovative ideas usually comes via loose personal ties and diverse networks. Knowledge intensive organizations need to be structured for both. Effective knowledge-sharing drives business value in a complex economy and this requires a workforce that is adept at sense-making."
What's the best way to develop innovative ideas in construction project problem solving and design? Vancouver, B.C. consultant Brenda Martens says it's not what most of us think it is.
B.C. organizations practice their own versions of creative collaboration. For example, Murray MacKinnon, vice president of sustainability for Ledcor Industries Inc., said the company uses the process on most of its large projects with big developers.
“It’s repeat business and we know and trust each other,” he said.
“We use it because it saves time, and time is money.”
”Now that we all have the tools, what shall we do with them? How can we use them to change the way we work? And even if we see the use cases and want to change our ways of working, how do our work environments encourage and enable us to do this?“
We still have to figure out how to use tools to develop better ways of working.
We live in the Social Age of Learning, where our ability to create meaning within our communities is key. In this Slideshare presentation Julian Stodd explore the foundations and principles of the Social Age, including an exploration of Social Leadership.
progressively we become more social and so social learning is a key player
"Technology facilitates our interactions, but doesn't guarantee our effectiveness as social leaders or learners. Instead, we need to develop our curatorial skills, our narrative and storytelling ability and our skills in collaboration and sharing. In the Social Age, traditional hierarchies of authority are subverted by reputation and humility."

A new way to produce is emerging. By this I mean: a new way to produce anything and everything, whether it is software, food, or cities.
There are bnew ways of working already, we just need to socialise them...
Ponder the following equations:
Information + Action = Knowledge
Knowledge is the result of information and action. Yet, knowledge of actions taken is still not wisdom. It is in the reflective process that we are able to see if the knowledge used and actions taken have produced something of value and worth.
Knowledge + Experience + Reflection = Wisdom
“One of the greatest moments in anybody’s developing experience is when he no longer tries to hide from himself but determines to get acquainted with himself as he really is.” - Norman Vincent Peale

Robust reflection is a prerequisite to personal and professional development.
Excellent article....thank you for sharing!
I believe that many of us know what we should be doing, and also have the experience that supports what we know.
What separates the best leaders I believe are those who take time to reflect on how the knowledge + experience is rightly applied. Taking action after reflection is when wisdom is rightly applied.
What are your thoughts?
Make it a great day!
Thru self reflection, a leader can make changes to improve his/her leadership.
The one thing all humans have in common is that each of us wants to be happy, says Brother David Steindl-Rast, a monk and interfaith scholar. And happiness, he suggests, is born from gratitude.

I think this helps people aware of the others and build trust. All of these help the further of knowledge sharing.
Every group operates within a larger social system. Its fundamental purpose is to provide value to the larger whole. This includes value to itself and to its members but always within the broader context. To better understand group intelligence, let’s explore it through the lens of social systems theory.
