"Networks of trust and norms of reciprocity" are at the heart of the human ability to co-organize without formal institutions, aka "social capital." But reciprocity, according to Robert Cialdini, is universal: "There is not a single human culture that fails to teach its members in this rule."

Community, more than any other factor, will transform the role of leaders and influence the development of workplace culture. The power of online learning communities is more visible in lean-running start-ups where skills must shift quickly, but I think their effect will be more profound in established companies on a global scale.

Creating a Cycle of Success

Creating a Cycle of Success | Collaborationweb | Scoop.it

You have no doubt heard of the term “vicious cycle”.  It’s that incredibly frustrating experience of repeating the same patterns over and over with less than desirable outcomes.  It’s “vicious” because every time you think you have outsmarted the cycle, somehow there it is again.  It can seem like there is no way out!

donhornsby's curator insight, January 2, 2013 10:06 AM

(From the article): ith each success I completed a cycle of 5 practices below at least once, sometimes more than once, for the same intention or goal.  I call this the “Cycle of Success”.  On the other hand, with each thing I failed to do or failed in my attempt to do I unwittingly took an “off-ramp” from the Cycle of Success by failing to complete one or more of these practices.


(Good cycle to ponder in your own life).

luiy's curator insight, January 3, 2013 6:02 AM
Stigmergy coordinates dumb agents like ants into seemingly intelligent behavior. It can also coordinate intelligent agents like humans. We're just beginning to learn how to design stigmergic collaboration environments. Howard

 

"Stigmergy is a mechanism of indirect coordination between agents or actions. The principle is that the trace left in the environment by an action stimulates the performance of a next action, by the same or a different agent. In that way, subsequent actions tend to reinforce and build on each other, leading to the spontaneous emergence of coherent, apparently systematic activity.


Stigmergy is a form of self-organization. It produces complex, seemingly intelligent structures, without need for any planning, control, or even direct communication between the agents. – Wikipedia"


The future

A new system of governance or collaboration that does not follow a competitive hierarchical model will need to employ stigmergy in most of its action based systems. It is neither reasonable nor desirable for individual thought and action to be subjugated to group consensus in matters which do not affect the group, and it is frankly impossible to accomplish complex tasks if every decision must be presented for approval; that is the biggest weakness of the hierarchical model. The incredible success of so many internet projects are the result of stigmergy, not cooperation, and it is stigmergy that will help us build quickly, efficiently and produce results far better than any of us can foresee at the outset.
