Cybernetics, the Social Web, and the (Coming?) Singularity (by Jeff Sayre)

Over the past year or so, I have been doing a lot of thinking, reading, and ruminating about several topics: the outdated thinking of Web-2.0 startups, the need for a revolution in the microblogging space , what identity in the Social Web is really all about, and the meaning of a truly user-centric Social Web. As I’ve been furiously writing about these topics, in the back of my mind, I’ve been wondering where all of these advancements may eventually lead. Whereas you will find my insights and thoughts about the Social Semantic Web strewn throughout my website, this article is an attempt to extrapolate a few of those ideas in a more provocative and profound–if not frightening–way. So, you have be forewarned. Any resemblance to reality may be greatly over exaggerated!

The benefits of mindfulness, or being fully conscious and aware of one’s actions and surroundings, have been well documented by psychological scientists. Advantages include decreased risk of burnout at work, improved mental health, and smarter decision-making, according to recent studies. Now, researchers are turning their attention to a potential new connection: mindfulness and creativity.

Change has clearly become the new normal and organizations that can seamlessly navigate the constant state of disruption will best position themselves for success in the future world of work. In such environments there is an imperative for leaders to go first, setting the example for all others to follow. Leaders who approach the change with the right mindsets, and leaders who send the right messages through how they act and behave.


Steve Bax's curator insight, June 24, 2015 4:01 AM

A thought provoking article. Two elements are particularly notable: A quote from Tim Cook, CEO of Apple ...: “We change every day. We changed every day when he (Steve Jobs) was here, and we’ve been changing every day since he’s not been here. But the core and the values in the core remain the same as they were in ’98, as they were in ’05, as they were in ’10. I don’t think the values should change. But everything else can change.” and within the article...

 

What we typically don’t consider however, is it’s not the overt messages that make or break us, it’s the covert ones, the ones we are not thinking about or aware of. Thus, most times when we find our teams and organizations resisting change, our answer as to why is staring right back at us in the mirror.

 

Dan Diamond, MD's curator insight, August 11, 2015 5:26 PM

There are four primary type of mindset:

1). BYSTANDERS: the powerless-givers that "wish" they could do something. They are not engaged and don't contribute.

2). VICTIMS: the powerless-takers that yell, "help me!" They consume resources and leave a wake of damage.

3). MANIPULATORS: the powerful-takers that demand, "for me!". They may get ahead for a while but only at the expense of others.

4). THRIVER: the powerful-givers who's motto is "for you". They focus on equipping others to succeed and don't care who gets the credit.

Only 15% reach self-actualization. I wonder how many never get beyond security? More importantly, what constrains those people? As well, we should not mistake people who are busy selling themselves and their limited ideas with anything but the security level.

I've always been a fan of Maslow's hierarchy of needs and I really appreciate this "tweaked" model because it maps it very close to the principles of employee engagement. 


 


 


 


On the survival level, I would add "I can't retire" as a common sign of disengagement.  As a supervisor, I do all I can to engage many of these staff as they often provide great context and insight as to what has been done in the past and how efforts can be optimized in order to succeed the next time we try them.

Social Media Companies To Identify and Report Potential Terrorists?


Other presidential candidates have chimed in asking for weakened encryption and backdoor access to websites to ensure national security. GOP presidential hopeful Lindsey Graham spoke out Wednesday in a Fox News interview, saying Silicon Valley needed to change its policies.

One of the gunmen involved in the shooting outside of a Prophet of Muhammad cartoon drawing contest in Garland, Texas “had 109 messages sent between him and a known terrorist overseas that we could not look at because of encryption,” Graham told Fox News’ Greta van Susteren. “There is technology available to terrorists where they can communicate without — even with a court order, they can communicate without us knowing. That has to change.”

Leadership begins at the end of your comfort zone. Leadership starts in the learning zone. History has shown that life rewards the risk-takers, such as Thomas Edison, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Nelson Mandela, Henry Ford, Elon Musk, and many, many more. These are leaders who have dared to step out their comfort zone.

 

Leaders who dared to change things.Leaders who dared to make a difference.Leaders who dared to make an impact on the world.

 

Where do you find the line is for your. Is it easier to stay in the comfort zone? Do you try to step out into doing things different but then jump back into comfort? Are you someone who pushes the comfort and see how far you can go?

 

My advice is just try, see if you can get out of your comfort. All I ask is take one more moment and stay with that stretching and growing opportunity and just take 1 more breath. 1 breath, if you an make it through 1 breath then you have gone farther than what you would have without it.

 

Here's to you and your business's brilliance (and one more breath!),
