Your body language shapes who you are [TED] - Amy Cuddy

Your body language shapes who you are [TED] - Amy Cuddy | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   Amy Cuddy wasn’t supposed to become a successful scientist. In fact, she wasn’t even supposed to finish her undergraduate degree. Early in her college career, Cuddy suffered a severe head injury in a car accident, and doctors said she would struggle to fully regain her mental capacity and finish her undergraduate degree.

   But she proved them wrong. Today, Cuddy is a professor and researcher at Harvard Business School, where she studies how nonverbal behavior and snap judgments affect people from the classroom to the boardroom. And her training as a classical dancer (another skill she regained after her injury) is evident in her fascinating work on "power posing" -- how your body position influences others and even your own brain.

   “Don't fake it till you make it. Fake it till you become it.” Amy Cuddy’s research on body language reveals that we can change other people’s perceptions — and even our own body chemistry — simply by changing body positions. "Using a few simple tweaks to body language, Harvard researcher Amy Cuddy discovers ways to help people become more powerful."

The Internet of Things [Infograph] - @SteveLeibson

The Internet of Things [Infograph] - @SteveLeibson | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

Some time in 2008, the number of things connected to the Internet exceeded the number of people on Earth. And those aren't just computers or smartphones, but everything, including wireless sensors on cattle so that the farmer gets a message when a cow is pregnant or sick. This infographic shows us how connected to the Internet everything in our lives is today -- and what the future holds.

Why Story Matters - @Thaler Pekar

Why Story Matters - @Thaler Pekar | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   “Communication is more than a transmission or transference device—it is a way in which we connect with and realize our humanity.” In my work, I help people share their stories so listeners will find resonance and will share their own stories in return. This is how mutual communication helps advance humanity. The one thing I would like you to take away is that communication is more than transactional. Communication can be transformative.

   Modern, effective communication is more than transactional. Communication can be transformative. Communication has to be about engagement.

7 Time-Proven Strategies for Dealing With Information Overload - @dlavenda

7 Time-Proven Strategies for Dealing With Information Overload - @dlavenda | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   Even in that age pre-dating personal computers, the Internet, and iPads, people were overloaded by information. The advent of digital information and communication technologies has just made the problem far more acute.

 

   What can we do to deal with the information tide? Miller in his 1962 study provides some extremely effective strategies for dealing with overload; strategies that in some cases work just as well today as they did in the 1960s. Here are Miller’s seven strategies for dealing with information overload, updated for the times:

 

1. Omission or Deletion;

2. Error;

3. Queuing;

4. Filtering;

5. Employing multiple/parallel Channels;

6. Approximation or Distortion;

7. Escaping from the task.

 

Curator:

And one extra from the realm of NLP is: 

8. Do an Upchunk or Generalize.
