While at Columbia University, Andy J. Yap set up a simple experiment. After manipulating his subjects into powerful or weak states (in the lab, psychologists are the most powerful ones of all), Yap asked them to guess the height and weight of others both in person and from photographs.
"When people feel powerful or feel powerless, it influences their perception of others," said Yap, who is now a postdoctoral researcher at MIT. According to their understanding, we judge the power of others relative to our own: When we feel powerful, others appear less so --and powerlessness and smallness often go together in our minds.
Le chômage frappe aujourd'hui 200 millions de personnes et la croissance n'est pas de retour. A Davos, ManpowerGroup a alerté les entreprises sur les conséquences de l'ère d'incertitude absolue qui s'est ouverte.
Ecouter les mots, mais aussi tout ce qui n'est pas dit, tout ce qui n'est pas conscient, tout ce qui est caché derrière la communication non-verbale, n'est-ce pas cela vraiment être à l'écoute de l'autre ?
Philippe Vallat's insight:
Tout l'art de la calibration fine et de la présence à l'autre
Too many people expect strategy to provide certainty. (Strategy needs to be agile).
Philippe Vallat's insight:
To the point: "So rather than seeing strategy as a way to get rid of uncertainty, think about strategy as a way of dealing productively with life's inevitable uncertainty, by continuously making and updating your bets about the future."
Recent research suggests that rituals may be more rational than they appear. Why? Because even simple rituals can be extremely effective. Rituals performed after experiencing losses – from loved ones to lotteries – do alleviate grief, and rituals performed before high-pressure tasks – like singing in public – do in fact reduce anxiety and increase people’s confidence. What’s more, rituals appear to benefit even people who claim not to believe that rituals work. While anthropologists have documented rituals across cultures, this earlier research has been primarily observational. Recently, a series of investigations by psychologists have revealed intriguing new results demonstrating that rituals can have a causal impact on people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
"C’est un changement de paradigme très profond ! Le style de management doit également opérer sa bascule. En effet, dans une culture financière et comptable, le patrimoine de l’entreprise n’est plus reflété dans son bilan car son principal actif n’est pas comptabilisable puisqu’il s’agit de l’ensemble des savoir faire, de l’intelligence et des talents qui s’y expriment."
The Belgian professor and consultant, Nick van Heck, likes to say, in a purposefully provocative manner that “Disruptions do not exist. They are only an excuse for the unprepared”. For him, leaders need to challenge their assumptions about what strategy and planning are about and how they are structured. He continues: “Strategy should not be about guessing the future but preparing for whatever may be!” I support this way of thinking.
