The Elephant in Your Life: How to Conquer Your Blind Spots

Blind spots are the elephant in the room: we prefer not to confront or talk about it. What you don’t know you don’t know gets you into trouble. Use feedback to challenge your assumptions.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, April 2, 1:36 PM
We live lives with personal prejudices and traditions that often come unquestioned. To move ahead, we need both, but we must question them and create dialogue about them. This entails a hermeneutic task, one of continously the narrative that is our living.

Our medical systems are broken. Doctors are capable of extraordinary (and expensive) treatments, but they are losing their core focus: actually treating people. Doctor and writer Atul Gawande suggests we take a step back and look at new ways to do medicine -- with fewer cowboys and more pit crews.

“Words create worlds” Abraham Heschel   Generally speaking, I don’t think philosophy is considered to have much practical relevance to organisations.  Certainly, when I look back on my early training as a psychologist little attention was paid to questions of philosophy.  A few months ago, a daughter of a friend was telling me that she was …

A lot of great insights. I concur with  "I now believe that change happens when we change how we talk and relate with each other.

This is my experience too. For a very long time my thesis has been all change is personal first, relationships second and organisations a distant third

David Ednie's curator insight, February 25, 5:07 AM

Future workplace skills will move away from linear, repetitive tasks that can be (and should be) automated and migrate to where real value can be liberated. These future workplace skills are based on uniquely human skills and competencies such as curiosity, creativity, empathy, humour and passion. None of which can be automated or replaced by a machine. I think of this as Value Migration.

An IoT-driven economy requires technology-empowered firstline workers | #InternetOfThings

An IoT-driven economy requires technology-empowered firstline workers | #InternetOfThings | The new world of work | Scoop.it

We continue to bask in the glory of the information technology revolution, now a three-decade-long event, which has reshaping the jobs of professionals and corporate staffs across the globe. However, it seems most workers have actually been left out of the equation -- the so-called firstline workforce, consisting of field technicians, healthcare providers, retail clerks, drivers, and so on.

 

They're called "firstline" for a reason -- they're the people with whom your customers are most likely to have first and only contact. If they can't deliver the goods or services because they are missing out on technology, then your company is seen as unable to deliver, simple as that.


With the rise of the Internet of Things and associated artificial intelligence, it's more important than ever that firstline workers receive the training, support and technology tools they need to deliver on meeting their customers' needs. Manufacturers, in particular, are seeing a dramatic shift in their business models, with more revenue coming from aftermarket service and support, especially as they develop the ability to monitor products and run analytics for predictive maintenance.

More than 80 percent of executives in a recent survey from Forbes Insights and Microsoft agree that empowering firstline workers with the tools and platforms they need has a direct impact on customer satisfaction, growth and worker job satisfaction,. In this survey, which I helped design and analyze, we found that this important component of the workforce continues to be overlooked.

Our Obsession With Working Hard Is Ruining Our Productivity

Our Obsession With Working Hard Is Ruining Our Productivity | The new world of work | Scoop.it

What do you really need to get ahead at work?

 

I get asked this all the time. The answer varies depending on the person, their goals, and my mood, but there’s one answer I’ll never give: “Work hard.” That’s not an oversight or a misstep. It’s very intentional.

 

Whenever I hear some public speaker or Silicon Valley personality talk about how it just takes hard work to really succeed, I can’t help but roll my eyes a little. I’m sick of hearing people talk about working hard, keeping busy, putting their head down, etc. We’ve become too preoccupied with “the grind,” and it’s actually bringing us down.

Hard work is important to success, but it’s dangerous to see it as the most important thing.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, February 9, 8:23 AM

Most people do idle work and the working hard becomes working hard... Good read . 

Maggie Lawlor's curator insight, February 9, 7:39 PM
“Working hard” and being “busy” need to be re-examined as standards we aspire to (just think about how most people respond when you ask them how they are!). Creative, innovative knowledge workers need “down time” to stay aware of shifts in the world, be in touch with what’s unfolding and harness their insights to keep their organizations agile and in step with rapidly emerging change.

Everyone Hates Setting Goals. Here's How Google Makes It Easier for Its Employees

Everyone Hates Setting Goals. Here's How Google Makes It Easier for Its Employees | The new world of work | Scoop.it

It's that time of year--leaders everywhere are charging employees with the task of establishing goals for 2018. If you've never been through a structured process, this exercise can be daunting, and frankly, feel like a big waste of time. I can assure you, it's not. 

 

Setting goals is critical. Goals provide direction, help you focus, prioritize your time and energy, and ensure that you can objectively prove you've advanced the company's agenda.

 

But just any goal won't do. Research shows that goals are not only important but also that the level of specificity and difficulty matters. Goals that are both clear and challenging drive higher levels of performance.

 

To set their teams up for success, many organizations use SMART goals. Google leaders use something a little different--"Objectives and Key Results" (OKRs). On Google's re:Work site, a resource that shares the company's perspective on people operations, Google explains the concept.

Kim Colwell's curator insight, February 13, 8:10 PM
This is a very interesting way to set goals.  I've heard of many different ways, however, have never been introduced to this.  I like the collaborative effort, the transparency, and the simplicity.  There are different templates that can be used.  I'm still reviewing what is out there I'm leaning towards Weekdone.  I can see the framework working not only as a company goal setting plan, it can work as a family or personal goal planning system. 
 
Heidi Freeman's curator insight, February 16, 10:53 AM

This could be a goal-setting technique that may work for you! Goal setting is a daunting task, but one we really need to master. OKR, Objective and Key Results, allows you to dream big and then figure out how you will measure your progress.

Daniel Susskind: 3 myths about the future of work (and why they're not true) | TED Talk | The new world of work | Scoop.it
"Will machines replace humans?" This question is on the mind of anyone with a job to lose. Daniel Susskind confronts this question and three misconceptions we have about our automated future, suggesting we ask something else: How will we distribute wealth in a world when there will be less -- or even no -- work?

Good talk and insights into how humans and machines can work together and compliment each other. Too much focus for me on economy rather than economy within society. I think the speed of technological change is a great opportunity for us to become better humans. We need a human revolution so that a machine dominated future doesn't happen.

Think Tank by Adobe

As an emerging market, the Asia Pacific region is facing unprecedented opportunity, but along with that, comes a host of new challenges. The integration of advanced technology into every aspect of our lives is altering the way we perceive and experience the world. At the same time, broad economic forces are causing a global cultural shift toward urbanization and decentralization, which will inevitably impact the way we, as humans, interact with each other. How does economic post-scarcity impact the role of consumer & employee experiences? Will machines revolutionize industries that rely on human labor, leaving many to rethink their life paths? What does the Future of Work look like for APAC and beyond?

Explore with Think Tank thought leaders as we consider a future where people and machines work seamlessly together, redefining our experiences at work and in our everyday lives.
