Cognitive Biases in Times of Uncertainty

John Hagel

  In times of high uncertainty, we all have a natural tendency to magnify risk and discount reward. And time becomes much too uncertain when risk and return perceptions magnify risk and discount returns.   They lead us to further magnify risk and discount potential rewards.   Rather than magnifying risk and discounting rewards, opportunity based narratives help to make long-term rewards more tangible.

Is 70:20:10 valid?

Jay Cross

Successful managers learn three to four times as much from experience as from interaction with bosses, coaches, and mentors. And they learn about twice as much from those conversations as in classrooms and formal learning programs. The shorthand label for this viewpoint is “70:20:10.”
