I do further and suggest that good leaders have teachable points of view and the first of these is that teaching and learning are core values of successful enterprises.

Why Knowledge is NOT Power | Boss Blog

Why Knowledge is NOT Power | Boss Blog | ThoughtFuel for Thought Leaders | Scoop.it
The article below was originally written and published at www.switchandshift.com. It can be found here.   Yes, I said it. Contrary to everything you’ve ever been told, knowledge is not power. The days of information hoarding—of only a few “powerful” people at the top of the outdated organizational pyramid—and holding on to that last bit of data as if nobody else could replicate it, are gone. Long gone. Today, knowledge is not power, but sharing knowledge is. If you look at the traditional business hierarchy—the same one adopted from the military years ago—the top of the pyramid represents the C-suite, the founders, or those who have the most influence by way of sheer rank or tenure. But does this make sense? I mean, executives at the top of the pyramid must (theoretically) know as much as possible about the company in order to run it effectively and to make the most informed decisions. But what happens as you traverse downwards through the ranks toward the lower levels of the

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions | ThoughtFuel for Thought Leaders | Scoop.it

Critical Thinking may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own - rather than just spouting off what you hear others say. This doesn't always come naturally to us, but luckily, it's something you can train yourself to do better.

 

Critical thinking doesn't end. The more knowledge you cultivate, the better you'll become at thinking about it. It's navel gazing in that you're constantly thinking about thinking, but the end result is a brain that automatically forms better arguments, focused ideas, and creative solutions to problems.

A very practical description with examples of ways to become better in your critical thinking. A good primer for sense making as part of the PKM framework.

Terry Doherty's curator insight, February 15, 2014 8:00 PM

"Navel gazing." I haven't heard that term in ages ... and don't do it near enough.

 

Todd Bratcher's curator insight, February 18, 2014 6:46 PM

Critical thinking means to ask questions that need to be asked. it involves finding the significance in every piece of information you come across and formulating opinions and plans of action. You have to ask the tough questions and the best one to start with is "Why?" Critical thinking is about being curious and allowing your sense of curiosity to follow the "why".Often times following the why will lead to finding the truths and finding lies. Critical thinking is also about honing in ones BS detector. Take time to analyze information before accepting it's credibility.

Flexing Design to Fit the People - The Accelerators - WSJ | ThoughtFuel for Thought Leaders | Scoop.it
An excerpt from the book "Scaling Up Excellence: Getting to More without Settling for Less" by Robert I. Sutton and Huggy Rao: Certain elements do pop up in every flavor of design thinking that we apply, including empathy (understanding human emotions, goals, and needs that a design ought to address) and rapid prototyping (developing quick and cheap solutions and updating them rapidly in response to users’actions and suggestions). Yet d.school professors have become more “Buddhist” over the years. We’ve learned, for example, that bankers are less confident in their creativity than Girl Scouts and thus require more coaching...
