The Science Behind What Really Drives Performance (It's Going to Surprise You) | Business Transformation: Ideas to Action | Scoop.it
If you're skeptical that this is too touchy-feely for a business setting, the research doesn't lie.
David Ednies insight:

Empathy in the modern workplace is not just about being able to see things from another perspective. It's the cornerstone of teamwork, good innovative design, and smart leadership. It's about helping others feel heard and understood.

Daniel Tremblay's curator insight, February 8, 2017 8:20 AM
"Empathy in the modern workplace is not just about being able to see things from another perspective. It's the cornerstone of teamwork, good innovative design, and smart leadership. It's about helping others feel heard and understood."  -- Ray Krznaric, author of Empathy: Why It Matters, and How to Get It

"We feel [empathy] is in serious decline. More concerning, a study of college students by University of Michigan researchers showed a 34 percent to 48 percent decline in empathic skills over an eight-year period. These students are our future leaders! We feel there are two reasons that account for this decline. 

Organizations have heaped more and more on the plates of leaders, forcing them to limit face-to-face conversations. Again, DDI research revealed that leaders spend more time managing than they do "interacting." They wish they could double their time spent interacting with others. The second reason falls squarely on the shoulders of technology, especially mobile smart devices. These devices have become the de rigueur for human interactions. Sherry Turkle, in her book, Reclaiming Conversation, calls them "sips of conversations."

Change Is Changing

Change Is Changing | Business Transformation: Ideas to Action | Scoop.it
That means that in order to win in the marketplace you must out-think, out-innovate and out-execute everyone you compete against – both as an organization and as an individual.
David Ednies insight:

Change ain't what it used to be. Change is changing - the rate of change is changing. As Jack Welsh famously said "When the external rate of change is greater than the internal rate of change, you have a problem." In the post-digitally disrupted world we all have a "problem". Question: What are you doing about it?

Why Is Innovation So Hard? | Business Transformation: Ideas to Action | Scoop.it
What business today does not want to be more innovative? In business parlance, “innovation” has reached a glorified position—like “customer centricity,” it is deemed to be a strategic necessity. But it is hard to define.
David Ednies insight:

Being smart is knowing what you don’t know, prioritizing what you need to know, and being very good at finding the best evidence-based answers. Being smart requires you to become comfortable saying, “I don’t know.”
