Leslie T. Chang: The voices of China's workers | Video on TED.com

TED Talks In the ongoing debate about globalization, what's been missing is the voices of workers -- the millions of people who migrate to factories in China and other emerging countries to make goods sold all over the world.
Ali Godding's insight:

This is a very thought provoking talk that is relevant in many ways.  As with many TED talks it challenges you to think from a new perspective.  If you are interested in the context of China's performance with an 'inside view' you will love this!

Ali Godding's insight:

Yesterday I hosted my first 'radio' show for Engage for Success along with Jon Ingham and Jo Dodds and special guest Prof Katie Truss. 

 

We discussed the events that took place in December, interviewed Professor Katie Truss, and highlighted the dates of events in January.   

 

It was definitely something out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed it and can already think of ways to make it even better next time! Would love to hear any further suggestions of what to stop start and continue doing moving forward with this show.  

 

Enjoy!

The 9 Types of Collaborators

The 9 Types of Collaborators | Good Management | Scoop.it

If you approach your collaboration strategy with a “one-size-fits-all” mentality, your rollout is far more likely to fail. Within an organization, there exist all different types of users that each prefer to work in their own unique ways – some prefer to work in groups, others in silos, some on iPads, others on pen and paper.

Sue Austin: Deep sea diving … in a wheelchair | Video on TED.com

TED Talks When Sue Austin got a power chair 16 years ago, she felt a tremendous sense of freedom -- yet others looked at her as though she had lost something. In her art, she aims to convey the spirit of wonder she feels wheeling through the world.
Ali Godding's insight:

Watched this brilliant TED talk yesterday.  It was one of two really excellent talks (I have posted the other here also).   

 

I think this is relevant to all managers - as being human we can all make assumptions about people based on our own percpetions of the world.  This moving talk challenges that in the most elegant of ways.

OU on the BBC: Masters of Money - OpenLearn - Open University | Good Management | Scoop.it

I don't think I am the only one with a question mark over what is going on in the economy.  I never studied economics but that doesn't mean I am not interested. I am one of the many who have read Freakonomics and other popular books published for the lay person.  

 

I am guessing with the way things are we are ALL interested these days!  So anyway,  I switched on the telly last night to this series 'Masters of Money' supported by the Open University.  I found it a fascinating introduction.  There are plenty of other resources here also.  

 

If you want to gain a better understanding of the stuff what makes our world go around, and as managers we probably all do,  then this is a great place to start.
