Bosses vs. Leaders: Companies Need Neither

Bosses vs. Leaders: Companies Need Neither | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
It was just a couple of hours ago that I saw an illustration here on my news stream on LinkedIn, about the differences between "the boss" and "the leader". Most of us have probably seen this kind of visual many times before: They invariably argue for "bosses becoming more like leaders", for "leaders becoming more transformational", or for companies to not have bosses altogether. Now, let´s look at this line of thinking a little bit closer.

The Future is Hybrid: Digital Learning, Power Skills and What You Need to Succeed

The Future is Hybrid: Digital Learning, Power Skills and What You Need to Succeed | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Most of us are familiar with hybrid cars, animals – my family has a labradoodle! - plants, molecules, investments….the list goes on. When something is a hybrid version of itself, we associate it with being something new, unique perhaps, even something exciting. The same can be said for hybrid jobs and hybrid professionals.

What are hybrid jobs?

Hybrid jobs are taking the workforce by storm - mixing equal parts traditional business knowledge, like management or relationship building, with equal parts in-demand and in-the-moment new age skills, like data analytics or coding.

Something new? Hybrid jobs certainly fits the bill. But, what about exciting? According to Burning Glass, a company that delivers job market analytics, 'hybrid' jobs pay well above the national average salary. Exciting? I think so!

As the hybridization of jobs permeates through all industries, it’s important that both employers and employees think about how this new wave of roles will impact how they are hiring (or hired) and how they are training (or trained).

If You Are Serious About Achieving Success In Any Area of Your Life, Master Your Mindset

If You Are Serious About Achieving Success In Any Area of Your Life, Master Your Mindset | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Some people believe their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work. This view creates a love of learning and a resilience that is essential for great accomplishment.
Others believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They also believe that talent alone creates success — without effort. Instead of developing their talents, they spend their lives documenting and proving themselves.
This is the growth versus fixed mindset, first discovered by Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck. She explains:
For twenty years, my research has shown that the view you adopt for yourself profoundly affects the way you lead your life. It can determine whether you become the person you want to be and whether you accomplish the things you value.
Cultivating a growth mindset can help you focus more on your most desirable goals in life. It may influence your motivation and could make you more readily able to see opportunities to learn and grow your abilities.

5 reasons why museums need a Chief Digital Officer – by Richella King | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Like many organisations museums have a uneasy relationship with digital, it’s viewed variously as a source of novelty and innovation, a low-cost marketing and publishing tool, a platform for education, a minor revenue stream or  more human extension of the IT department.  These views ignore the transformative power of digital thinking and technology that is…

The 7 Habits that Books and Reading Help You Build – The Mission – Medium

The 7 Habits that Books and Reading Help You Build – The Mission – Medium | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
The most useful definition of technology I’ve heard is simply, “the ability to do more with less.”
I think of books and reading as technologies.
We only live one life, but through books, we can gain the wisdom from thousands. When an author writes, re-writes, and edits, they are turning their words into a more perfect version of themselves. When you read, you get to spend time in a meditative state with a wise person’s more perfect self.
Books are the most under-valued and under-appreciated technology in the world.
How do we know they’re so valuable? We need only to examine how the best and the worst people throughout history have viewed books.

The Unfortunate Middle 

The Unfortunate Middle  | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
We are taught, from a young age, to exist in the middle.
Everything in moderation. Don’t be a tall poppy, nor a shrinking violet. Good enough is good enough. The middle way, middle-class, mid-tier. That’s where we want to be. Not so big that we get cut down, and not so small that we can’t stand up. Just, you, kind of, well, average. That’s the goal.
Build a career that’s okay, not amazing, not terrible. Launch a company that’s cruising along, not struggling and not leading. Build relationships that are, well, “solid,” not empty, nor deeply passionate.
The middle — the coasting life — that’s where life is meant to be lived. That’s our aspiration.
Except that it’s not. With rare exception, the middle is not the easier, most comfortable place to be, but rather the hardest to sustain and the least rewarding on nearly every level. Sure, it protects you from the anxiety of growth and the stress of survival, but it also ends up feeling like the worst of both worlds.

A History and Future of the Rise of the Robots – Hacker Noon

A History and Future of the Rise of the Robots – Hacker Noon | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
Moving into the not so distant future, our cobbler lost his job in the factory about 50 years ago but luckily was able to get a job in a suburban mall selling shoes at Foot Keeper. Doing such a fine job on the floor he was promoted to supervisor and eventually store manager. Foot Keeper, however, is phasing out the store model. You peruse through various styles online and pick your favorite. You then throw down your phone and take 3D scans of your feet which are sent directly to the Foot Keeper factory filled with 3D printers which custom print the shoe, based on the unique shopper’s foot, in less than one minute. A machine then packages the shoes and loads them on a waiting Amazon Drone to be delivered to your doorstep this afternoon. (This scenario isn’t nearly as far away as it may seem. Look up Carbon3D). Alas, our cobbler has been completely cut out of the system. There may be other industries for him to jump into for a while as they mature into full automation, but for how long?

Libraries continue to evolve in digital age

Libraries continue to evolve in digital age | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it
[...] in the era of digital media and instant information, more people are doing research and other traditional library tasks digitally. Staff of The Lone Star College-Tomball Community Library of the Harris County Public Library System are keeping up with the age of technology and social media. The Harris County Public Library has social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Pinterest, Tumblr, YouTube, and Instagram at both the system and branch level. According to the Pew Research Center, the vast majority of Americans - 95 percent - now own a cellphone of some kind. Whether that be implementing library apps or providing a focal point for members in the community to gather and share information amongst each other. The changes of technology and meeting the needs of the majority of people using digital devices is making public community libraries shift and re-focus being a vital attraction for the community. Libraries help close the technology gap because we provide Internet access to everyone and training for those who might not have received it in school or did not grow up with technology. Through the library's app, people have access to streaming video, digital magazines, ebooks, music, and audio books. In 2016, Harris County Public Library challenged the community to check out a million digital items in OverDrive in one calendar year through a campaign called Project Mill-E. Library representatives believe there will always be a place for libraries in the community because the center serves as such a strong information source for the people in the community. "With all of the information and experiences that are shared through technology, libraries are a primary resource in the knowledge ecosystem and play a key role in stimulating thought, action, and learning," Edward Melton said, Harris County Public Library director. Public Libraries level the playing field by providing free access to a wealth of information and resources that may not be accessible in other places of the community.
