The CIA failed to stop 9/11. But the reason why is a problem extending beyond the intelligence community.

Why Humble People Make Better Decisions

Have you ever noticed how we say that beliefs are something you “hold”? According to new research out of Duke University, the grip you keep on your ideas shapes the way you approach the world. How tightly (or not) you cling to your own opinions is called “intellectual humility” (IH), and it could have a big effect on the decisions you make.

Philippe Vallats insight:

Worth reading in times of "alternative facts"

Lorien Pratt's curator insight, January 21, 2018 7:34 PM

Intellectual humility is the degree to which people recognize that their beliefs might be wrong...and people high in intellectual humility were more attuned to the strength of persuasive arguments than those who were low.  This is part of the "framing" needed for good decision intelligence including voting decisions.

How to Act Quickly Without Sacrificing Critical Thinking

How to Act Quickly Without Sacrificing Critical Thinking | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

An unbridled urgency can be counterproductive and costly. If you’re too quick to react, you can end up with short-sighted decisions or superficial solutions, neglecting underlying causes and create collateral damage in the process.

But if you’re too deliberative and slow to respond, you can get caught flat-footed, potentially missing an opportunity or allowing an emergent challenge to consume you.

Linear Thinking in a Nonlinear World

Linear Thinking in a Nonlinear World | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

The obvious choice is often wrong.Test yourself with this word problem: Imagine you’re responsible for your company’s car fleet. You manage two models, an SUV that gets 10 miles to the gallon and a sedan that gets 20. The fleet has equal numbers of each, and all the cars travel 10,000 miles a year. You have enough capital to replace one model with more-fuel-efficient vehicles to lower operational costs and help meet sustainability goals. Which upgrade is better?

Examinons ensemble ce qui conduit à une pensée ordinaire et explorons les attitudes qui permettraient d’aller vers une connaissance élaborée.

The Neuroscience of Trust

Companies are twisting themselves into knots to empower and challenge their employees. They’re anxious about the sad state of engagement, and rightly so, given the value they’re losing. Consider Gallup’s meta-analysis of decades’ worth of data: It shows that high engagement—defined largely as having a strong connection with one’s work and colleagues, feeling like a real contributor, and enjoying ample chances to learn—consistently leads to positive outcomes for both individuals and organizations. The rewards include higher productivity, better-quality products, and increased profitability.

Leadership Lessons From Sully

Leadership Lessons From Sully | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

It’s been almost eight years since Captain Chesley Sullenberger miraculously landed US Airways Flight 1549 on the Hudson River. It began on a chilly day in January 2009 when his plane encountered a flock of geese upon departure from New York’s LaGuardia Airport. Both engines lost thrust, putting 150 passengers and 5 crew members at serious risk. Roughly four minutes later, Sully ditched the plane on the Hudson River. Every soul aboard survived. 

Philippe Vallats insight:

Take attention to the following statement of Sully: the controller did not try to steer him in a particular direction: his choice of phrasing was helpful to him.

Décider dans l’incertitude : et si vous vous mettiez à la rétroprospective ?

Selon l’économiste Michel Godet, la prospective est l’art d’« éclairer l’action présente à la lumière des futurs possibles et souhaitables ». Le recours au pluriel – futurs possibles – indique clairement que la prospective n’a pas vocation à prédire quoi que ce soit, mais bien plutôt à explorer des changements, voire des ruptures, qui pourraient transformer l’environnement dans lequel opère une entreprise, une administration publique, etc.

"Percevoir, c’est être en alerte, chercher et accueillir avec bienveillance de nouveaux signaux faibles, de nouveaux « faits porteurs d’avenir », parfois rassurants, parfois déroutants, toujours utiles."

L'essentiel pour bien décider

Décider, c’est un savant dosage d’art, et de science. Décider, c’est un saut dans l’inconnu, c’est trancher avec toutes les données que l’on a à disposition - et qui peuvent n'être que partielles. Comment décider au mieux ? Comment prendre une décision pertinente ?

Philippe Vallats insight:

A l'affirmation des auteurs que "décider, c'est trancher avec toutes les données", j'oppose la citation de Piaget:

« L'intelligence, ça n'est pas ce que l'on sait mais ce que l'on fait quand on ne sait pas. »

Philippe Vallats insight:

"The authors main message is that despite the general belief that organisations enlist the cognitive and intellectual capacities of their members in positive ways, the truth is that organisational behaviour often exhibits a wilful ignorance of facts and/or a lack of logic.

Desde la óptica de observación que utilizaban Socrates y Platón, los males sociales más que de la maldad provienen de la ignorancia, de la estupidez. Por eso SABER VIVIR es la meta que debe guiar todo el esfuerzo políico-educacional - Obviamente, el Polo opuesto a la mentalidad del PP donde Rajoy quiso que el anti-educador Wert destruyera las bases del sistema educativo del país.

Uncertainty, ambiguity and the art of decision making | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it
A common myth about decision making in organisations is that it is, by and large, a rational process.   The term rational refers to decision-making methods that are based on the following broad steps: Identify available options. Develop criteria for rating options. Rate options according to criteria developed. Select the top-ranked option. Although this appears to be a…

This viral email from General James 'Mad Dog' Mattis about being 'too busy to read' is a must-read | Mindful Decision Making | Scoop.it

… The problem with being too busy to read is that you learn by experience (or by your men’s experience), i.e. the hard way. By reading, you learn through others’ experiences, generally a better way to do business, especially in our line of work where the consequences of incompetence are so final for young men.
