Six tips for taking complex decisions at work

Six tips for taking complex decisions at work | Mindfull Decision Making | Scoop.it
Companies and individuals face various problems daily. Some of these problems are the direct consequences of our actions or reactions to the situations we face. When we fail to explore the nuances and complexity of a problem, our response is not as flexible and effective as it should be. Systems today are volatile, uncertain, complex…

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Mind and Consciousness

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Mind and Consciousness | Mindfull Decision Making | Scoop.it

In the last 400 years physics has achieved great success, in theory and experimentation, determining the structure of matter and energy. The next great step in the evolution of science will be exploring the role of mind and consciousness in the universe, employing mathematics and fundamental theoretical constructs to yield specific predictions. Based on recent findings in biological autonomy, we propose to approach consciousness from the key aspect of decision-making. 


Via Alessandro Cerboni
Philippe Vallat's insight:

Some quotes:

  • if biological decision-making occurs through the quantum-vacuum and the Universe as a whole can be regarded as conscious or equivalently living, then decision-making can also occur through the autonomy of a living Universe.
  • At present, it is generally conceded that we do not know how our minds interact with our bodies.
  • the phenomenon of intuition seems to be related to cellular and universal consciousness as basic ingredients of organismal mind
  • living organisms, including the human, are first of all
    systems of consciousness capable of making decisions.

David Hain's curator insight, May 7, 12:23 PM

Physics, spirituality and timeless life skills seem to be increasingly coming together. There should be mystery left for a while though!

Eli Levine's curator insight, May 7, 3:45 PM

We are all one with the universe, regardless of our superficial or substantive differences.

 

A shame that this universe could raise so many people who are so incapable of living within it for a very long time.  Then again, isn't that what evolution works out over time?

We're a very young species and if we don't die off in the meantime, we will be stronger than before, especially if we identify, isolate and care for those who are not really fit for living, in spite of being otherwise functional, thanks to their brains and behaviors that prove to be dangerous to themselves and dangerous to others in the long and short terms.

 

It's time we take our mental health seriously, because we are all human and are all working with a second hand perspective of the world.  Some people's views are more accurate and helpful than others.

 

Think about it.

Qu’il s’agisse d’une paire de chaussures ou de son partenaire pour la vie.... nous savons tous combien il est difficile de faire le bon choix. Une décision réfléchie est l’aboutissement d’un processus complexe que nous raconte avec un humour très british ce reportage de la BBC.

Comment se créent et s'entretiennent les décisions absurdes.

Via Frédéric Brutier
Philippe Vallat's insight:

J'aime en particulier la conclusion:

"Pour le manager, abandonner la pensée magique, objectiviste ou mécaniste et soumettre ses jugements au filtre raisonnable de la pensée systémique, constructiviste et pragmatique contribue à dépassionner  les problèmes et à adopter une approche du management plus humaine et réaliste.
Il lui faut pour cela abandonner les utopies et les simplifications dangereuses et accepter des bonnes pratiques qui le conduisent lentement mais sûrement au but qu’il s’est fixé. "

A classic from one of the most interesting therapeuta and thinker, author of Palo Alto Mental Research Institute... I have found it earlier in German on youtube but now it's also with French subtitle... his books are really amazing,  at the time a very new insight how people are thinking...

 

Just to mention some of his books (in English):

- Change

- Language of change

- How real is real

- The invented reality (editor and author)

- Situation is hopeless, but not serious (not the script of the similarly titled film comedy...:-)))

Behavioural Economics: From Anecdote to Action on Vimeo

When it comes to making decisions, the fact is we think much less than we think we think! Behavioural Economics has shown that our decisions are guided not by our plans or intentions, but by where we are, the people we’re with and the unconscious forces inside us. Summaries of Behavioural Economics offer a collection of delightful anecdotes, but can leave you wondering how on earth to use it. To make sense of it, join Orlando Wood as he talks through BrainJuicer’s Behavioural Model; learn why it’s so important to make buying your brand fun, fast and easy and how the behavioural sciences can inspire better research and marketing.

Your emotions are probably costing you money in the market

Your emotions are probably costing you money in the market | Mindfull Decision Making | Scoop.it


Armed with mountains of data, reams of corporate filings and advice from professionals, investors often rely on a range of emotions to make financial decisions – whether they realize it or not. And those underlying feelings can present roadblocks to rational investing.

The problem is not that we have emotions, it is that we cannot deal with them properly and let them induce cognitive biases.

Decision accuracy in complex environments is often maximized by small group sizes

Individuals in groups, whether composed of humans or other animal species, often make important decisions collectively, including avoiding predators, selecting a direction in which to migrate and electing political leaders. Theoretical and empirical work suggests that collective decisions can be more accurate than individual decisions, a phenomenon known as the ‘wisdom of crowds’.

[...] Our results demonstrate that the conventional view of the wisdom of crowds may not be informative in complex and realistic environments, and that being in small groups can maximize decision accuracy across many contexts.

The Couzin lab (Princeton) is focused on 'group animal behavior,' and although this paper isn't available directly, the title made me wonder if the observations might apply to the way we make decisions in what is certainly a complex environment...  Perhaps worth a read...

Damien Thouvenin's curator insight, May 3, 5:58 AM

Deux chercheurs de l'université de Princeton démontent la soi-disant "sagesse des foules" et montrent que, si l'intelligence collective d'un petit groupe produit de meilleurs résultats que le travail individuel, ceci est en revanche faut pour de grands groupes. La diversité des points de vue et des sensibilités d'un petit groupe tend à filtrer le "bruit" environnant tandis qu'il est amplifié par une foule.

10 überraschende Fakten über unsere Entscheidungen | Mindfull Decision Making | Scoop.it


Rund 20.000 Entscheidungen treffen wir täglich. Die meisten davon blitzschnell. Das fängt mit dem Aufstehen an: Kaum piept der Wecker, landet der Zeigefinger auf der Snooze-Taste – Sie entscheiden: noch fünf Minuten Dämmerschlaf! Doch das bedeutet weniger Zeit fürs Frühstück – also verzichten Sie auf eine zweite Tasse Kaffee. Die nächste Entscheidung. Und so weiter. Gerade im Job geraten wir zigfach in Situationen, in denen wir blitzschnell entscheiden müssen, ohne es wirklich zu wollen. Und wir stehen dort mit einer Wahrscheinlichkeit von etwa 60 Prozent unter Zeitdruck…

Eli Levine's curator insight, April 23, 3:33 PM

A very interesting piece.  I can't explain to you how it works.  But I do know that it is what guides me along the way and that there's nothing worse than when one's intuition is checked negatively by reality.

 

Personally, I think it has something to do with those microtubules they're discovering in our brain cells.  It's a deeper connection with the reality of life, the universe and everything that most of us can have.  And it, arguably, is what will save our universe more than anything that we can contrive or create out from the nothingness of our own brain's endless ability to hallucinate or produce.
