Evolving Knowledge

Evolving Knowledge | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it
Today, much of our knowledge, and sense making, takes place within our communities. Multiple, overlapping, often conflicted, social structures. Historically, we would access knowledge directly, but on the right hand side of the illustration, i’ve tried to capture something of the dynamic of how we access it today. Clearly we interact directly, but there are also layers of social filtering, social amplification, and social validation (and be clear that i am not saying that all of these things are good!). To large extent, the knowledge that we access it both influenced by our community, and constricted by it, but also processed and filtered.

Good leaders, Social Leaders, have a responsibility to understand just how: to be able to build out a broader, more balanced, dynamic community, and to understand how bias and influence flows through it. Put simply, the more interconnected and diverse, our community, the more balanced and diverse our access to knowledge, and ability to find true meaning.

Build Empathy with Listening and Tolerance  

What can you do to build and sustain empathy?

A suggestion: Cultivate listening and tolerance in your organisation.

 

• Making the effort to encourage listening and tolerance – and modelling these behaviours for others – will build empathy and rapport, and eventually motivation and trust.

• The sad fact is, listening and tolerance for other points of view are slowly disappearing.

How Unequal School Funding Punishes Poor Kids | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it

"School budgets are moral documents, revealing not only how much society values education as a public good, but how we value the children of different communities. Today, with a reactionary administration seeking to privatize public education further, children living in extreme deprivation stand to lose the most."

Problems are Interconnected -- And so are Solutions - The Donella Meadows Project

Problems are Interconnected -- And so are Solutions - The Donella Meadows Project | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it
The way it is usually told, the message Everything is Connected to Everything Else is not fun to hear. It is intended to cause repentance and reformation. More often, of course, it causes guilt, fear, and an uncontrollable urge to avoid environmentalists.

What we are rarely told is that solutions are as interconnected as problems. One good environmental action can send out waves of good effects as impressive as the chain of disasters that results from environmental evil.

Take energy efficiency, for example. That doesn’t mean deprivation of creature comforts; it means insulating houses, driving cars with better mileage, and plugging in appliances that deliver the same service for less electricity. Amory Lovins of the Rocky Mountain Institute says we could reduce electricity use in the U.S. by 70% with already-proven and currently-economic efficiency measures. We could cut our $430 billion annual energy bill in half just by being as efficient as Japan and West Germany are.

Good reminder of the power of both/and. When it comes to solutions to problems acceptance of both/and is often the key to finding the third alternative
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 11, 2017 1:36 PM
Hannah Arendt contended that action is what transcends the space and time we exist in. Teaching is that way. What happens in this moment can transcend space and time, finding new solutions and creating new problems unexpectedly. If we teach children to be environmentally aware, it is a gift that will find its way into the future.

Collaborative working and the benefits it brings

Collaborative working and the benefits it brings | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it

From winning sports teams to globally successful businesses, there are so many examples of how collaboration in teams can produce incredible results. Building and developing a collaborative culture within your team is key to improving the share of knowledge throughout your business, which will ultimately lead to a more efficient working environment. Whilst many people like the idea of working in a collaborative environment, they aren’t always willing to undertake the investment required to establish a fully collaborative workforce. 

As the working world becomes increasingly global, and teams are split across different geographies and time zones, the need for collaboration has never been so important. With new technologies and cloud-based systems offering teams the ability to communicate information and share knowledge, businesses should utilise the opportunities available to improve the collaboration amongst their teams.

Random Acts Of Leadership™ | Collusion vs Collaboration

Random Acts Of Leadership™ | Collusion vs Collaboration | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it
A group of talented individuals does not necessarily translate into a high performing team.  That’s why sometimes the underdog seemingly comes out of nowhere to win.  In fact, high performing teams know that to succeed they must depend on each other as much, if not more, than their individual talents.

Perhaps even more importantly, they act as if their success is dependent on the success of others.  They also believe that they can truly count on each other to do what is best for their team, to be treated with respect and fully supported no matter what.


The answer to this one question – can we count on each other when it really counts – can reveal whether your team is colluding for mediocrity or collaborating for greatness.

[Opinion] Top colleges are cheaper than you think (unless you’re rich)

[Opinion] Top colleges are cheaper than you think (unless you’re rich) | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it

The cost of college is a notoriously complex subject. The list price at many private colleges, including tuition, fees, room and board, has reached the bewildering sum of $70,000 a year. But the real price, taking into account financial aid, is often vastly lower.

How much lower? We’re here to help answer that question.

More than 30 top colleges now participate in a simple online calculator that provides cost estimates to families. (And those 30 typically charge similar prices to other selective colleges.) The New York Times has analyzed the data from the calculator and is publishing the results here. It’s a snapshot of what college really costs.

You Do Not Think Alone

You Do Not Think Alone | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it
“The Thinker,” Auguste Rodin’s bronze sculpture, has become a visual cliché, a common representation of deep thought — a figure, gazing down, chin on hand, completely alone. This is utterly misleading, according to the authors of “The Knowledge Illusion,” which carries the subtitle: “Why We Never Think Alone.” Steven Sloman, a professor at Brown University, and Philip Fernbach, a professor at the University of Colorado’s Leeds School of Business, argue that our intelligence depends on the people and things that surround us, and to a degree we rarely recognize. Knowledge, they say, is a community effort. Sloman answered questions from Mind Matters editor Gareth Cook.

Two heads are better than one: why collaboration is key to disruption | ED 262 KCKCC Su '18 | Scoop.it
Now, an increasing number of start-ups and established companies are realising the benefits of collaboration.

Challenging, rather than collaborating, leads to the demise of many start-ups, which fail to understand how their industry operates and how best they can maximise their place within it. Having a great idea is essential but, if we can combine this with buy-in from organisations who already possess power, we’re really cooking with fire.

It’s a simple concept: if a start-up shares the same goals as its more-established counterparts, it should seek to work collaboratively in order to drive real change. We are achieving this by collaborating with relevant industry bodies in health, progressing our mission to change the way the world views health and wellness, and this same approach can be adopted by entrepreneurs across many different industries.
