2017 Edelman Trust Barometer

The 2017 Edelman TRUST BAROMETER reveals that trust is in crisis around the world. The general population’s trust in the institutions of business, government, NGOs, and media declined broadly, a phenomenon not recorded since Edelman began tracking trust in 2001.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, January 17, 5:34 PM

The implications of the global trust crisis are deep and wide-ranging. It began with the Great Recession of 2008, but like the second and third waves of a tsunami, globalization and technological change have further weakened people’s trust in global institutions. The consequence is virulent populism and nationalism as the mass population has taken control away from the elites.

 

Key findings from the 2017 Trust Barometer include:

 

  • Trust in business (52 percent) dropped in 18 countries, while NGOs (53 percent) saw drop-offs as high as 10 points across 21 countries.

 

  • Employees, on average, are trusted 16 points more than CEOs on messaging around employee/customer relations (53 percent), financial earnings (38 percent), crises (37 percent), innovation (33 percent), industry issues (32 percent) or programs addressing societal issues (30 percent).

 

  • Half of the countries surveyed have lost faith in the system, led by France (72 percent) and Italy (72 percent), Mexico (67 percent), South Africa (67 percent) and Spain (67 percent).

 

  • Trust in traditional media fell 5 points to 57 percent, the steepest decline among platforms since 2012, followed by social media (41 percent), which dropped three points. By contrast, online-only media (51 percent) received the biggest bump in trust at five points.

How to Fight Stress with Empathy

How to Fight Stress with Empathy | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
The Center for Disease Control found that 66 percent of American workers say they lie awake at night troubled by the physical or emotional effects of stress, and stress has been linked to many health problems, including obesity and heart disease—especially among low-income Americans. Stress not only affects us, but it can impact those around us, too, especially our children.
Not all stress is bad, of course. Stress can also be invigorating or lead us to care about the welfare of others, if channeled in the right way. Nor is it always avoidable—many of us have lives with stressors beyond our personal control. But, psychologists have identified key variable that determine whether stress ultimately affects us positively or negatively:
Our perception of stress
The meaning we attach to it
Our ability to cope with uncertainty and ambiguity
The degree of control we have over the circumstances that produce the stress
In my experience, many people don’t recognize the role that their own perceptions, fueled by biases, play in exacerbating stress. By becoming more aware of our biases in perception, we can learn to focus on the truthful assessment of situations we encounter without distorting reality, thereby remaining calm, energetic, creative, and resilient when faced with highly stressful situations.

Have you ever witnessed someone lose their cool at work? How suddenly facts, arguments, and reason become irrelevant because a decision maker has a meltdown? Or how, at a meeting, the moderator is holding a monologue rather than engaging with the other participants and encouraging different viewpoints and ideas? Those behaviors are signs of a lack of emotional intelligence. And if leaders lack it, the consequences for their teams can be devastating.

Four principles for leadership in an uncertain world

Four principles for leadership in an uncertain world | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Mark Twain is reputed to have said: “History does not repeat itself, but it does rhyme.” It remains sage advice about the nature of international relations: we have a poor track record of preventing global mishaps, yet their causes often appear obvious upon reflection. Yet hindsight is arguably the most troublesome of cognitive biases that affect our decision-making, particularly when facing rising uncertainty about the future. A leader’s interpretation of a recent failure inevitably will shape his or her future strategy — this is why, for example, there is so much anxiety as to what the US will do in Syria and Iraq during the Trump administration. In studying aviation disasters, Dekker observed that most reactions to past failures share the following four common characteristics

How Artificial Intelligence Will Redefine Management

Many alarms have sounded on the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to upend the workforce, especially for easy-to-automate jobs. But managers at all levels will have to adapt to the world of smart machines. The fact is, artificial intelligence will soon be able to do the administrative tasks that consume much of managers’ time faster, better, and at a lower cost.

How can managers — from the front lines to the C-suite — thrive in the age of AI? To find out, we surveyed 1,770 managers from 14 countries and interviewed 37 executives in charge of digital transformation at their organizations. Using this data, we identified five practices that successful managers will need to master.

Wells Fargo Misread its Own Culture

Wells Fargo Misread its Own Culture | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Too many senior business leaders understand well the cultures that they want and should have, but are less clued in about the cultures that really exist within their firm.  Time needs to be spent analysing how things really work around their organisation. The challenge here may stem from the enormous external pressure and scrutiny that business leaders face (from investors, analysts, regulators, customers and media) drawing their attention outside the organisation and away from the workings of the firm.

There is a strange irony in that, while corporations today probably need employees to spend more time looking outward, we need our business leaders to gain a better view of what is happening on the inside.

IQ has nothing to do with success!

IQ has nothing to do with success! | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
Most of us not gifted with an Einstein-sized brain or extreme self confidence have sometimes wondered: am I really smart enough to achieve my dreams? Some of us have even turned down an offer or not pursued an opportunity because we're afraid we simply don't have the mental horsepower to succeed.

That's a shame, fascinating new science conducted by Nobel laureate John Heckman and colleagues suggests, because IQ has pretty much nothing to do with success.

Personality trumps smarts.
To come to that conclusion the researchers combed through data on IQ scores, standardized test results, grades, and personality assessments for thousands of people in Britain, America, and the Netherlands, according to BloombergView's Faye Flam (hat tip to Science of Us for the pointer). They then calculated how closely each of these factors predicted future earnings.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, January 11, 3:57 PM

"Grades were a bit better at pointing to future high earners, but not, the researchers suspect, because of what that A in chemistry says about your brain's innate capacities. Instead, the team concluded that character traits such as conscientiousness (in essence, the fact that you got out your periodic table and studied) and openness (that you were curious about chemistry in the first place) are far more predictive of life outcomes.


"The study found that grades and achievement-test results were markedly better predictors of adult success than raw IQ scores," reports Flam. Why? "Grades reflect not just intelligence but also what Heckman calls 'non-cognitive skills,' such as perseverance, good study habits and the ability to collaborate -- in other words, conscientiousness. To a lesser extent, the same is true of test scores."

Self-Refinement Through the Wisdom of the Ages: New Year’s Resolutions from Some of Humanity’s Greatest Minds

Self-Refinement Through the Wisdom of the Ages: New Year’s Resolutions from Some of Humanity’s Greatest Minds | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
At the outset of each new year, humanity sets out to better itself as we resolve to eradicate our unhealthy habits and cultivate healthy ones. But while the most typical New Year’s resolutions tend to be about bodily health, the most meaningful ones aim at a deeper kind of health through the refinement of our mental, spiritual, and emotional habits — which often dictate our physical ones. In a testament to young Susan Sontag’s belief that rereading is an act of rebirth, I have revisited the timelessly rewarding ideas of great thinkers from the past two millennia to cull fifteen such higher-order resolutions for personal refinement.

Five leadership priorities for 2017

Five leadership priorities for 2017 | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
As the past year has demonstrated, leaders must be responsive to the demands of the people who have entrusted them to lead, while also providing a vision and a way forward, so that people can imagine a better future.

True leadership in a complex, uncertain, and anxious world requires leaders to navigate with both a radar system and a compass. They must be receptive to signals that are constantly arriving from an ever-changing landscape, and they should be willing to make necessary adjustments; but they must never deviate from their true north, which is to say, a strong vision based on authentic values.

That is why the World Economic Forum has made Responsive and Responsible Leadership the theme for our annual January meeting in Davos. As leaders in government, business, and civil society chart a course for the next year, five key challenges will warrant their attention.

For businesses in crisis, whether in a restructuring or taking steps to avoid one, the stakes cannot get any higher. In these situations, messages matter – not only their content but also their structure, the channel, the timing, and the tone they’re delivered in. What, when and how executives communicate during a crisis is critical and can have a dramatic effect on the change process and resulting outcomes. That’s why we’ve developed a set of principles that business leaders can follow to communicate more effectively – and empathetically – during a crisis.

Why is it important? And why now? While there is growing interest in AI, the field is understood mainly by specialists. Our goal for this primer is to make this important field accessible to a broader audience.
We’ll begin by explaining the meaning of ‘AI’ and key terms including ‘machine learning’. We’ll illustrate how one of the most productive areas of AI, called ‘deep learning’, works. We’ll explore the problems that AI solves and why they matter. And we’ll get behind the headlines to see why AI, which was invented in the 1950s, is coming of age today.

Reflecting on the power of collaboration

Reflecting on the power of collaboration | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
What is particularly striking across all of the projects considered for these awards is the way in which research and innovation are driven by collaboration. The teams involved in these awards span multiple organisations and bring together a broad set of skills and experiences. They combine a range of disciplinary traditions. They link foundational discovery-led science with engineering practice.

The collaborations involved in these projects allowed research users to shape and drive the key research challenges. Each team involved was very much more than the sum of the parts, establishing new ways of working that allowed the different skills to be combined. The combination of these different traditions and viewpoints often provided the key insights that made each of these projects so successful. Collaboration drives the flow of ideas from the research lab into real world use. These ideas often span multiple sectors with lessons learned in one domain helping shape solutions in another. People and the flow of ideas are the driving forces of innovation, and collaboration is essential for success. These awards represent the best examples of the flow of ideas and the collaboration that underpins it.

Organizations are often run according to "the superchicken model," where the value is placed on star employees who outperform others. And yet, this isn't what drives the most high-achieving teams. Business leader Margaret Heffernan observes that it is social cohesion — built every coffee break, every time one team member asks another for help — that leads over time to great results. It's a radical rethink of what drives us to do our best work, and what it means to be a leader. Because as Heffernan points out: "Companies don't have ideas. Only people do."
