How Star Trek Liberated Television

How Star Trek Liberated Television | Good Advice | Scoop.it

Let’s think about Star Trek and the decline of network television.

The twenty-first century has not been kind to traditional network television in America. Overall viewership has been falling for more than a decade. The premiere of The Sopranos several seasons ago drew more viewers than any program on the networks. A mere handful of millions separates Fox News on cable from network news on free TV. Although the Nielsen ratings in the fall of 2005 show more people watching television than ever before, it’s often not the networks they are watching.

 

It wasn’t always so. Television entered the 1970s at the height of the networks’ oligarchic power. CBS, NBC and ABC accounted for ninety percent of the prime-time audience back then, which watched television on some 36 million TV sets. This translated into more than 100 million people. In contrast, the four major networks today (ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC) often have trouble attracting more than half that number of viewers in total.

It's not cheating - It's Social Learning

It's not cheating - It's Social Learning | Good Advice | Scoop.it

“Generation C” and the rise of social learning - “social learning” has probably taken less than 30 months to “arrive”. Social learning has in fact been around for a long time. It’s just that in my days at school, it was called “cheating” and was actively (and sometimes painfully) discouraged. Nowadays “collaboration”, “working together” and “team projects” are standard practice both in schools and colleges and in the workplace.

Think Social, Not Stupid

"Several of my colleagues/friends, in their love of instant and widely published bursts of Tweets, Facebook and More - have done some “Stupid” things that they almost instantly have regretted.

 

It is so simple to grab that smart phone or tablet and type 140 characters of instant emotion, thought or “aha”. It is so simple to post it to a Twitter account that might resonate with hundreds, thousands or even more readers...  Recently, an actress from a Broadway show saw a preview of a new play..." via Elliott Masie's Learning TRENDS - 734 - August 2, 2012.

How One Word Turned a Sinking Ship Into A Culture of Power | Good LifeProject: Build Your Own Good Life

How One Word Turned a Sinking Ship Into A Culture of Power | Good LifeProject: Build Your Own Good Life | Good Advice | Scoop.it

After 19 years in the Navy, David Marquet, was given command of his own fast-attack nuclear submarine.

 

But there was a problem. It was the worst performing sub in the Navy. Morale was horrible, turnover insanely high and culture nonexistent.

 

All traditional approaches to leadership had failed. So, Marquet, decided to try something radically different. It was his George Costanza opposite moment.

 

If prevailing wisdom wasn't working, what if you did the exact opposite? Heresy? Maybe. But would it work?

 

Indeed it did. Within 12 months, Marquet had turned the worst performing crew into the best. And it all began with a change to a single word that would unlock wisdom, responsibility and power in every person on the ship.

 

In this week's episode of Good Life Project, Marquet and I explore the shock of his new commission, the horrifying incidents that led him to realize how broken the culture and leadership system had become (and how he came very close to grounding the sub because of it).

 

We dive into how changing that single word sparked a wholesale shift in culture and performance. And we go deep into his new "Leader Leader" approach that led to what most believed was an impossible transformation under extreme conditions in a remarkably short period of time.
