Viv Baartman's insight:

Simplicity is important. Going totally old school; I watched Dean Martin along with Frank Sinatra entertain an audience in a 1965 show. No flash lights, no backing singers, no costume changes - but MORE entertaining than almost any current concert. Funny, well timed and SIMPLE. Let's not lose that it's the people - technology enhances but can't replace talent and god-given creativity.

10 Super Simple Tools to Regain Control When Someone Pushes Your Buttons | Human to Human | Scoop.it

This is the time of year when many of us find ourselves stressed and dealing with people who push our buttons whether on purpose or by accident.

 

Buttons are those areas that when touched on by someone in the course of communication, make us react. Some are bigger buttons than others but everyone has them and we all need tools for handling the communication when those buttons are approached or pushed.

How Successful People Stay Calm

How Successful People Stay Calm | Human to Human | Scoop.it

The ability to manage your emotions and remain calm under pressure has a direct link to your performance. TalentSmart has conducted research with more than a million people, and we’ve found that 90% of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions in times of stress in order to remain calm and in control.

 

The tricky thing about stress (and the anxiety that comes with it) is that it’s an absolutely necessary emotion. Our brains are wired such that it’s difficult to take action until we feel at least some level of this emotional state. In fact, performance peaks under the heightened activation that comes with moderate levels of stress. As long as the stress isn’t prolonged, it’s harmless.

Remaking the industrial economy | McKinsey & Company

Remaking the industrial economy | McKinsey & Company | Human to Human | Scoop.it
A regenerative economic model—the circular economy—is starting to help companies create more value while reducing their dependence on scarce resources. A McKinsey Quarterly article.
Viv Baartman's insight:

The most telling comment here refers to Circular Thinking:

 

A circular economy replaces one assumption—disposability—with another: restoration. At the core, it aims to move away from the “take, make, and dispose” system by designing and optimizing products for multiple cycles of disassembly and reuse.

 

Are we entering a new age of economy? Less consumerism, more thoughtful industrialisation?
