Organizations that thrive in the 21st century keep a handful of principles front and center in how they organize and work. Nearly every project we undertake touches these principles.

The future of work is all about innovation and agility. We have to be prepared for ever-changing circumstances, and that means being open to learning new things.
Learning is no longer something we just do in schools. We can't rely on just the skillset we knew when we entered the workforce--that will guarantee career stagnation.
So I decided to sit down with Dr. Josh Davis, the Director of Research and Lead Professor for the NeuroLeadership Institute, an organization devoted to using science to advance leadership potential.
NLI has recently been exploring how to make ideas stick. Through their research, they created a model outlining four key conditions for effective learning: Attention, Generation, Emotion and Spacing (AGES).
While a few rational individuals occasionally move humanity forward, The Crowd never gets more rational. For example, many people used to think the world was flat. Now, everyone accepts the world is…

Many business leaders tell me that one of their top priorities is increasing the quality and speed of their organizational innovation. Faster and better is now being applied to innovation just as it has been applied for decades to operational excellence. This need is being driven by faster paces of change, more complexity, connectivity, transparency, reduced barriers to entry and by exponentially advancing technology.
Complacency is a death sentence in business. The companies that are consistently at the top of the food chain are the companies that aren’t afraid to try something new, and are those that are willing to disrupt themselves as well as the rest of their industry.
"Another major insight comes thanks to advancements in brain-imaging techniques, which are helping scientists better empirically gauge how our brains react to specific types of spaces, light, and noise. Badger talks to Eduardo Macagno, a UC San Diego biologist who runs a virtual reality lab testing new types of hospital design (here’s a great video about it). Premature babies, brain damaged patients, or those suffering from dementia will all spend significant amounts of time in hospitals, which means that Gage’s and Macagno’s insights could help create spaces conducive to their sensitive brains."
The American work force has never been more diverse, with generations spanning from Baby Boomers to Gen X-ers and beyond. In recent years, however, Millennials (adults aged 19 to 35) have driven the biggest transformation in workplace dynamics. Experts and studies, for instance, tout how the Millennial generation is more collaborative than others and has a strong preference for remote work options. Additionally, Millennial workers are more connected and prefer to use technology to interact and get work done.
Why do these insights matter more now than ever before? According to an analysis from Pew Research Center, more than 30 percent of American workers today are Millennials. They recently surpassed Generation X in becoming the largest share of the American work force. As more Baby Boomers retire, more and more Millennials will be stepping up to fill management roles.
With Millennials moving into leadership positions, and an even younger generation (Generation Z) preparing to enter the work force, we predict there will be significant changes in office dynamics and operations starting in 2017, and lasting well into the coming years.
Here are some typical workplace practices that will become extinct in 2017 and beyond, as younger generations begin to dominate the work force.
It’s a long-standing piece of advice: to really succeed at work, you need to be a ruthless, hard-nosed go-getter. Your employees aren’t your friends, they’re there for one thing and that’s to get the job done.
But recent research from The Empathy Business suggests it might be time to rethink that approach. In fact, those leaders and companies that embed empathy – the ability to understand and share the feelings of others – into their business models perform far better than those that don’t.
After 10 years exploring the world, growing through unusual jobs, connecting deeply with strangers, I experienced a cultural shock when I joined a large, old, scientific company. First, I tried to cope. Then, I tried to change a few things. It didn't always work as hoped, but it was definitely instructive.
Poland just unveiled an amazing new bike path that glows bright blue at night! The path near Lidzbark Warminski is illuminated by phosphor, a synthetic material that lights up after it’s charged by sunlight. Studio Roosegaarde’s Starry Night bike lane inspired TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp. z o.o to create the glowing bike path.
