Excellent discussion of the human element in design.  This is targeted to health but I believe it applies to other areas.

Super Achievers' Secret Power: Humility

Super Achievers' Secret Power: Humility | Leadership | Scoop.it
BY CAMILLE SWEENEY AND JOSH GOSFIELD 

The very concept of humility can make us queasy. In this self-promotional era of social media flaunting and positive thinking, to be humble can seem at best to put us at a competitive disadvantage, at worst, to seem hollow. As Jane Austen put it, “Nothing is more deceitful than the appearance of humility.”

Ellen Langer on the Value of Mindfulness in Business

Ellen Langer on the Value of Mindfulness in Business | Leadership | Scoop.it

Suppose you’re confined to a nursing home. You’re elderly, you’ve lost much of your mobility, and your faculties are deteriorating. Along comes a Harvard University social psychology professor named Ellen Langer who takes you away on a retreat, where everything is transformed into the way it looked and felt when you were 25. Radios with vacuum tubes play rockabilly and Perry Como, a hardcover copy of Ian Fleming’s Goldfinger sits on a Danish modern coffee table (the movie won’t be released for several years yet), the clothing is au courant for 1959, and the conversation covers recent events like Fidel Castro’s invasion of Havana. The staff treat you like you’re in the prime of physical health, making you carry your own suitcases upstairs even if you haven’t recently lifted anything nearly that heavy. You know, at some level, that this is all a fictional recreation. But as it comes alive around you, you find yourself paying attention to your environment in ways you haven’t done in years.

How Decision-Making Is Different Between Men And Women And Why It Matters In Business - Forbes

How Decision-Making Is Different Between Men And Women And Why It Matters In Business - Forbes | Leadership | Scoop.it

In my work as a leadership trainer and a career success coach for women over 11 years, it’s become abundantly clear that the quality of one’s decision-making is not only a critical factor in her professional success and impact, but also reflects a wide range of influences that we’re typically unaware of, including core values, internal preferences, societal influences, social abilities, cultural training, neurobiology, comfort with authority and power, and much more.

To learn more about decision-making in general, and key differences between the way men and women make decisions in particular, I asked Dr. Therese Huston to share her insights. Therese was the founding director of what is now the Center for Faculty Development at Seattle University and has spent the past fifteen years helping smart people make better decisions. She has written for the New York Times and Harvard Business Review, and her first book, Teaching What You Don't Know, was published by Harvard University Press. Her current book How Women Decide: What's True, What's Not, and What Strategies Spark the Best Choices “pries open” stereotypes about women’s decision-making and serves as an authoritative guide to help women navigate the workplace and their everyday life with greater success and impact.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, May 12, 11:22 PM
Women make for good leaders, and it is high time we accepted this as an emerging reality. In the education sector, especially school education, women are more successful as principals and managers. The reason is perhaps that they are less likey to make wrong decisions under duress.
Walter Gassenferth's curator insight, May 15, 4:11 PM
Decision-making is a very important topic and often overlooked by companies. For those who speak the Spanish or Portuguese, more about decision-making can be read in http://www.quanticaconsultoria.com

26 Disruptive Tech Trends for 2016 - 2018 - Brian Solis

26 Disruptive Tech Trends for 2016 - 2018 - Brian Solis | Leadership | Scoop.it

Rather than look at just one year ahead, I organized my research against a two-year horizon and then added an analytical layer of what each trend meant and why each was important. But that still wasn’t enough. Nothing moves in calendar cycles except for taxes, birthdays, anniversaries, earning reports, etc. 


So, this year, I added one year to the event horizon… Introducing the “26 Disruptive Technology Trends for 2016 – 2018.”


In this report, we’ll explore some of the disruptive trends that are affecting pretty much everything over the next few years-at least those that I’m following. It’s not just tech, though. The report is organized by socioeconomic and technological impact....
