All leaders will see life become more chaotic and overwhelming, and their struggles and management will be more visible than ever. Egocentric leaders will have a difficult time evolving, if they even can, and will be unable to thrive in such discomfort. Organizations need to develop leaders who are motivated by altrocentric leadership. They will be better prepared to succeed in 2030 and beyond.

World's first remote air traffic control tower to open in Sweden | GizMag.com

World's first remote air traffic control tower to open in Sweden | GizMag.com | networking people and companies | Scoop.it
In a world first, air traffic controllers armed with a suite of high-tech video and sensor equipment have been authorized to direct flights over 100 km (61 mi) away at an airport in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden. The technology, developed by Saab, offers alternatives to consolidate smaller airfields with smaller budgets under one control, and provides options for training, crisis situations, and tower maintenance or refurbishing.Designed to meet the current needs of airport control, but scale in the future, the Saab Remote Tower System (RTS) has two components. First, the airstrip itself is installed with a tall, repositionable bank of high-res cameras, microphones, signal light guns and meterological sensors.All that information is sent to the Remote Tower Center (RTC), where human operators direct air traffic as they might traditionally, but over a great distance from the airfield. The RTC can also be designed to resemble more of a high-tech media room, with a 360 degree LCD or projected image live from the airfield, instead of 360 degrees of windows.The Swedish RTC has been approved to direct air traffic for two remote airports in Sweden, with full operation expected to begin in autumn this year. Theoretically the system allows smaller airports to upgrade their towers and by efficiently grouping multiple airfields together in one remote control center, airfields can avoid limiting flights or closing completely.Click headline to read more--

They enjoy their own company and aren’t dependent on others for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.

Can a Co-CEO Structure Work?

Can a Co-CEO Structure Work? | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Putting more than one person in the corner office has a checkered history. But it may be the kind of leadership style our times increasingly demand.


History and corporate lore has made the singular CEO into America’s unofficial folk hero: Behold, one magnificent polymath who sets the vision, knows the business inside and out, rallies the troops, and, if things go sour, nobly accepts the blame. Such leaders aren’t doing it all alone, of course—they distribute responsibility among VPs. But the idea of sharing power at the top has a way of seeming structurally unsound. Think about it: Jack Welch or Steve Jobs or Meg Whitman letting somebody else take some of the reins is so anathema to our concept of leadership that it has a vaguely un-American ring to it.

Don’t Sell a Product, Sell a Whole New Way of Thinking

Don’t Sell a Product, Sell a Whole New Way of Thinking | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Companies that successfully market and sell innovation are able to shift how people think not only about their product, but about themselves, the market, and the world.


Shifts in thinking don’t happen overnight, any more than going to a weekend yoga workshop makes you flexible. Think of it like learning a second language or building a new habit – in this case a mental habit. People need to see how the new way of thinking plays out in different contexts and situations.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, July 21, 12:46 PM

"The problem is that data, information, and value propositions are not enough to sell innovative products. We all know the saying, “I’ll believe it when I see it.” But when it comes to innovation, the truth is often “I’ll see it when I believe it.” To sell your idea to executives, buyers, and users, you have to change not only what they think, but how they think. Without the right mental model, they won’t see the problem, understand the benefits, or make the change."

Neurons get activated by diversity, and by a change in the routine of activity and thinking. Wrestling with an opinion different from your own, bending the mind to see an opposite view, going away for a holiday, taking a long walk, reading an unconnected book, listening to music, or even sleeping over a problem - all these get the neurons firing and colliding to provide new combinations of thoughts.

The Secret Power Of The Generalist - And How They'll Rule The Future

The Secret Power Of The Generalist - And How They'll  Rule The Future | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

We’ve become a society that’s data rich and meaning poor. A rise in specialists in all areas - science, math, history, psychology - has resulted in tremendous content. But how valuable is that knowledge without context?

 

Despite the corporate world’s insistence on specialization, the workers most likely to come out on top are generalists - but not just because of their innate ability to adapt to new workplaces, job descriptions or cultural shifts. Instead, according to writer Carter Phipps, author of Evolutionaries generalists will thrive in a culture where it’s becoming increasingly valuable to know “a little bit about a lot.”


Meaning that where you fall on the spectrum of specialist to generalist could be one of the most important aspects of your personality - and your survival in an ever-changing workplace.

Love this post - having been an extreme generalist for most of my life has enabled me to create new businesses and further  broaden my knowledge....but over the aa LAST 5 years I've dived DEEP into the things I'm MOST passionate about. Now I'm risen to the surface  as one of the few who can take you BROAD & DEEP....

 

I guess that makes me a SPECIALIST GENERALIST by nature. That's what has finally empowered me to call myself a TEACHER, MENTOR & INSPIRATIONAL BUSINESS COACH.

How Renaissance Men And Women Think

How Renaissance Men And Women Think | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

Do you think like a polymath? Here's a quick test: are you more of a rational or experiential/intuitive thinker?

 

If you cringed as you read the question and thought to yourself, "I love constantly shifting between both modes of thought," then you're on the polymath path.

 

According to psychologist Seymour Epstein's cognitive-experiential self-theory, humans have two parallel but interacting modes of information processing. The rational system is analytic, logical, abstract and requires justification via logic and evidence. In contrast, the experiential system is holistic, affective, concrete, experienced passively, processes information automatically and is self-evidently valid (that is, experience alone is enough for belief).

The Beginning and the End - The Meaning of Life in a Cosmological Perspective

The Beginning and the End - The Meaning of Life in a Cosmological Perspective | networking people and companies | Scoop.it

In this fascinating journey to the edge of science, Vidal takes on big philosophical questions: Does our universe have a beginning and an end, or is it cyclic? Are we alone in the universe? What is the role of intelligent life, if any, in cosmic evolution? Grounded in science and committed to philosophical rigor, this book presents an evolutionary worldview where the rise of intelligent life is not an accident, but may well be the key to unlocking the universe's deepest mysteries. Vidal shows how the fine-tuning controversy can be advanced with computer simulations. He also explores whether natural or artificial selection could hold on a cosmic scale. In perhaps his boldest hypothesis, he argues that signs of advanced extraterrestrial civilizations are already present in our astrophysical data. His conclusions invite us to see the meaning of life, evolution, and intelligence from a novel cosmological framework that should stir debate for years to come.
