The Adaptive Cycle Diagram

All complex organizations have a life cycle. They are born, they grow, they age, and they die. Often, a new version of the old system is reborn and goes through the life cycle again.

 

The model that has proven most useful to me in considering how to change these complex systems is the Adaptive Cycle (pictured above; for more versions of the model see Variations on Adaptive Cycle Model), also called the Panarchy Model. The adaptive cycle, slightly modified, is a useful  template for understanding how the purpose of an organization and its use of resources change throughout its life cycle.

Staying Independent in Old Age, With a Little Help

Scientists debunk the IQ myth: Notion of measuring one's intelligence quotient by singular, standardized test is highly misleading

Scientists debunk the IQ myth: Notion of measuring one's intelligence quotient by singular, standardized test is highly misleading | Trends, directions, future... | Scoop.it
After conducting the largest online intelligence study on record, scientists concluded that the notion of measuring one's intelligence quotient or IQ by a singular, standardized test is highly misleading.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Hmmm... it says that brain training is worth nothing and it is not good to get older... the first I doubt, the second is trivial... however, that they research it, it's OK... by the way, I never believed very much  in one magic number characterising such a complicated, multifacet and culture-depending feature...

Neuroscience and Leadership

Neuroscience and Leadership | Trends, directions, future... | Scoop.it
Regardless of disadvantageous experiences, especially in early life, individuals who truly want to develop their leadership capacity can do so through personal discipline and focused attention.

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Interesting article... I have some smaller reserve though... the most importatnt is that as far as I know the left and right hemisphere is toda rather a metaphora than a physical reality (when one of them is hurt, the other more or less takes over without problem its functionality) but if we take it as it is - a strong metaphorb - the sens of the argunment is as good as it would be a physical reality...

Leadership Consultant Jim Shipley über Erkenntnisse der Neurowissenschaft und ihre Bedeutung für Führung. Interessante Punkte:1: Gedanken, Gefühle und Bewusstsein entspringen alle demselben neuronalen Mechanismus – eine Trennung von emotionalen und rationalen Aspekten der Führung macht daher wenig Sinn.2: Es gibt neben dem Erfahrungs-Selbst auch ein hochsubjektives Erinnerungs-Selbst, das Objektivität vortäuscht  – Führungskräfte können demnach zu besseren, holistischeren Entscheidungen gelangen, wenn sie lernen, mehr im Jetzt zu sein und nicht so sehr aus ihrer Erinnerung heraus zu interpretieren. Netter Text, allerdings predigt er auch die fragwürdige These von der unterschiedlichen Ausrichtung der linken und der rechten Gehirnhälfte.

Kasia Hein-Peters's curator insight, April 21, 2013 1:56 PM

Leaders are not born, they are coached.

Sue Rizzello's curator insight, December 19, 2013 2:01 AM

Learning, discipline and focus are part of earning a leadership position. Self perception as a leader is a fundamental part of building that perception in others. You communicate how you think in everything you say and do in interacting with the world.

Can Steven Chu Win the Fight Over Global Warming?  - TIME.com (from 2009 but it's very actual...) | Trends, directions, future... | Scoop.it
Steven Chu, the Nobel-winning Secretary of Energy, says people caused global warming. I came across this Time article from 2009 and it amazed me. It's more actual than ever when e.g. on the presidential debates the energy issue is such a high ranked one. I normally am rather moderate global warming sceptic but what I've read in this has moved me twice or ten-times more than earlier e.g. the book and video of Al Gore. The standing, the stature of this great Chinese-American scientist-politician is something I should stop-by and rethink what I'm normally thinking about energy, politicians and at all about global warming... that somebody in a four-year bound administration could see in these dimensions?! Jesus Christ... this is a man...

just to characterise him briefly from one of the possible points of view, everybody in his family has more advanced degrees and is minimum science professor, he himself - on the question of the Time-reporter how many advanced degrees he himself holds - answered by asking: "...if a law degree counts as advanced..." and "...he was only - the later Nobel laureat physicist - a mere A-minus student, an 'academic blacksheep' - at least compared with older brother Gilbert, a straight-A valedictorian..., now a biochemistry professor at Stanford..."

The future of futurism. | Trends, directions, future... | Scoop.it

It's easy to make futurists look silly. For every prediction that comes true (or that sort of comes true—Nostradamus predicted that someone named "Hister" would do something terrible one day), about 20,000 more do not. - Are you Cornucopians or neo-Malthusians/doom-sayers? Or have you another alternative(s)? E.g. we will stagnate so and so till the sun is shining?
