The post-job economy | Harold Jarche | Working Smarter to Meet the Challenges of the Conceptual Age | Scoop.it

"Many MOOC’s are based on an educational model that has a curriculum from a body of knowledge that, so the logic goes, when mastered will prepare someone for meaningful work. Improving one’s education to get a job is often a primary motivator for participation. It’s the way the system has worked for decades. The “job” was the way we redistributed wealth, making capitalists pay for the means of production and in return creating a middle class that could pay for mass produced goods. That period is almost over. America has hit peak jobs TechCrunch informs us. The New York Times calls it  the rise of the permanent temp economy. The recession, combined with technology, is killing middle class jobs, reports the Associated Press.

 

"We will not find a rebalance between jobs and people having them."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 26, 2013 4:26 PM

Jon Kabat-Zinn recently said humans need a Job. This is similar to the thinking of Thomas Merton and Parker Palmer. Meaningful work gives meaning to life, makes us complete, and is a calling or vocation. It is not doing someone else's work. The latter is oppressive and demeaning. Victor Frankl proposed life has transcendant elements and our calling should do that.

如何策展你所阅读的任何内容的简单学习过程:看奈尔笔记方法。

康奈尔笔记法将笔记本分为三栏:大区域的主栏、条目栏(线索栏)、总结栏。

记笔记方法为”5R's”法:

1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。

Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 18, 2013 10:26 AM

I scooped this article because it's a great reminder with a very simple message -- drop the corporate speak; don't focus on pushing messages to folks; just show up, be real, and my addition: focus on story sharing.


Stories aren't mentioned in this article, yet they are your vehicle to building trust, being authentic, conveying complex information with simple elegance, all while being humble. And this is what the article talks about.


A lot of the storytelling articles I'm reading lately are still focused on using stories as a push technology to broadcast messages to people. That is old hat. We are now in another world where it is finally recognized that stories are a pull technology (they pull people into your world) AND that stories told evoke stories in the minds of listeners that they want to share back with you. So story sharing needs to be the focus these days.


This article helps us get our head straight about that. It's a quick read with terrific insights and tips to share. Happy reading!

In this free podcast my co-author, Lori Silverman (of our new book Business Storytelling for Dummies) chats about the role of stories in organizational change.


The podcast is 36:31 minutes long. Organizational change efforts have a notorius failure rate of about 70%. Stories can make a significant dent in that statistic since story sharing throughout the change cycle is critical to keeping the project focused. Stories also provide tangible evidence of change progress that keeps the effort going. And stories engage employees very directly in the change process, particularly if accompanied by consistent recognition.


If you've ever had questions about how stories are important to successful change efforts, Lori has insights to share with you here.

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 | Working Smarter to Meet the Challenges of the Conceptual Age | 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.

Critical Thinking is the killer tool of content creators.  

Terry Doherty's curator insight, February 15, 5:00 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, 3:46 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.

Once again my story colleague in Israel Limor Shiponi has brought us a unique and very insightful article about what happens physically to tellers and audiences when storytelling.


It is rare to find an article that talks about this. And yet it is critical to understand for anyone who is working with stories in the business arena (or any arena actually).


This is where training in performance storytelling can be a huge assist to business storytellers -- because the physical aspects of storytelling and story sharing are part of the training. As is deep listening to the audience, which is another dynamic that is going on the two anecdotes shared.


Oh, and could the photo and quote shared from the Dalai Lama be any more perfect?!


I hope you enjoy this article and gain some insights into the physicality of business storytelling.

This podcast is also available on itunes at The Story Factor podcast:


Here is another free podcast from colleague Annette Simmons who continues her interview with Jane Praeger. The focus this time is on using personal stories in your professional life -- and still some talk about the role of surprise in telling a story. Praeger went into surpirse more deeply in her first podcast with Annette which you can also find in this collection.


I appreciate it when Jane says that the fastest way to building trust is being vulnerable when sharing a story. That means it's OK to be an authentic human when sharing a story who makes mistakes and isn't perfect.


What I also like about this podcast is that Jane offers a free case study that you can download when you click on the link on the podcast's page. Yeah! We like good free stuff :))
