How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes: Lessons in Mindfulness and Creativity from the Great Detective

How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes: Lessons in Mindfulness and Creativity from the Great Detective | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

“The habit of mind which leads to a search for relationships between facts,” wrote James Webb Young in his famous 1939 5-step technique for creative problem-solving, “becomes of the highest importance in the production of ideas.”But just how does one acquire those vital cognitive customs? That’s precisely what science writer Maria Konnikova explores inMastermind: How to Think Like Sherlock Holmes (UK; public library) — an effort to reverse-engineer Holmes’s methodology into actionable insights that help develop “habits of thought that will allow you to engage mindfully with yourself and your world as a matter of course.”

Looks like another book to add to my ever-growing reading list. I often use the "crime map" metaphor when trying to linke patterns, people, and trends for significance. Also fits with our philosophy of "linking and leveraging".

Hello Nicolas, suite aux films, plusieurs livres ont été publiés de manière très opportuniste sur les leçons de Sherlock en matière de résolution de problèmes. Je t'invite si tu ne l'as pas encore lu, à lire Stratégies de génie de Robert Dilts, chercheur en PNL, dont l'un des 3 tomes formalise sa modélisation du processus cognitif de Sherlock (autrement dit Conan Doyle) paru il y a une bonne dizaine d'années.

The Great Inflection has transformed the world over the past decade. Each individual has to adapt.
Tom Hood's insight:

In our work with the CPA Horizons 2025 Project the trends and perspectives of thousands of CPAs indicated that "this time it is different" and the sense that change was accelerating in speed, scope, and scale. This article by Friedman seems to affirm this.

 

Friedman quotes Craig Mundie of Microsoft who says, "When the world gets this hyperconnected the speed with which every job and industry changes also goes into hypermode. “In the old days,” he said, “it was assumed that your educational foundation would last your whole lifetime. That is no longer true.”

 

What is the bets way to deal with it? Not I.Q. but P.Q. (Passion Quotient) and C.Q. (Ciriosity Quotient).

Avery's curator insight, March 25, 2013 11:56 PM

My Thoughts:

You can't teach someone how to learn. You can give them helpful tips and advice, but a single structure for education is not going to work for everyone. It's so much harder for people to learn their true potential, to reach their goals, when they're only shown a single path to them. You show them the path through the forest, but what if there's a rock face nearby that also leads up to where they want to go, and what if they happen to be a fantastic rock climber? It just makes more sense to show someone a map if you can, instead of directing them towards only one path.

The segmentation will both be driven by learners and context (profession, employer, career) Within each of these areas, innovation is rapidly accelerating. In the case of MOOCs , we only seeing gen 1 fo disruption. In the case of professional development, it is about how do you add value and engagement. You are on the right track.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, February 4, 2013 6:27 AM

My Voice provides educators with a powerful tool for understanding both what motivates and inspires students to achieve, and how well students believe their school is meeting those objectives. My Voice is a powerful tool for initiating innovative, meaningful school reform.  

 

Global summary:  

 

Student-teacher relationships, which can be powerful contributors to student engagement
and academic success, are in need of improvement; moreover, perceptions of studentteacher relationships appear to weaken, rather than strengthen, through the middle school
and into the high school years.
– At all levels of secondary education, students need to be more engaged—and trends across
the grade levels suggest this problem gets worse, not better, the longer students are in
school; and
– While learning in school in general is perceived as important, it is not perceived as
particularly relevant to many students’ lives, and this perceived relevance generally declines
as students progress through school.

 

This document needs to be read and read well for those looking to change the culture of their building.

Your Network: Professional Context vs. Personal Context | How Collaboration Can Keep Your L>C | Scoop.it

What Reid Hoffman writes in this post might be obvious to some but it's a fundamental point I see others overlook more often than not. Context is really important both in real life and on social media.

If you extend that train of thought, you realize that the topic you're addressing also changes the context. Which is why bringing curation with the right context under a topic-centric model is so important.

We need to believe we are not reinventing the wheel. It exists and needs to be dusted off.

Ivon makes a good point. Is this not true however for most 'new' business and leaderships ideas. Even with (internet) technology as major disruptor in many industries, the fundamentals of value creation (management/leadership and innovation) have not changed. At the root of all value creation (which is the purpose of business) lies collaboration. The more unique the players in the collaboration game, the more value can be created, provided the game is played according to some key rules of engagement. Yes, collaboration as a powerful concept is not new. Facilitating productive collaboration is a whole different story. Perhaps that is where the challenges and opportunities for new leadership lie.

Social accounting involves using new collaboration tools inspired by social networks to connect and engage in a business context.
Tom Hood's insight:

"Value begins with with organizations that are willing to change their processes to transform their businesses and delight their customers" - Sandy Carter - IBM

 

Today's environment does not give us the luxury of relying in the past. Who can forecast with accuracy the next 3 - 5 years? That means what got us here, won't get us there (to the future). Which means we have to rely on collaboration both inside and outside our organizations. With our customers and our partners and suppliers and most importantly our teams.

 

Great post and love the idea of "social accounting" and it is not just for CPAs in practice but our CPAs in business, industry, and NFP also.

It is called i2a:Insights to Action and is modular which allows for engagement and alignment at different stages. I think the key takeaway is that you need to think about how you can engage your team in your strategy.
