Trust is a safe to fail exercise

Dave Snowden

The post Trust is a safe to fail exercise appeared first on Cognitive Edge I just came off a conversation with our lawyer about contractual arrangements for the new centre. Last week I had conversations about trust with network members in the context of legal restrictions.

Internet.org is a failed exercise in misdirection

Doc Searls

The Internet is one thing. It is comprised of everything it connects. By nature it is as neutral as gravity. It favors nothing and is not partial to anything. Yes, there are exceptions to that rule, in the way Net access is provisioned, but the basic nature of the Net — as a free, open and neutral shared space in the world — is by now obvious to pretty much everybody who doesn’t have an interest in limiting it in some way.

Daily Exercise (in challenging times)

Work out what you do, why it matters, and how it helps others. If you fail at any of the above, do something else. Rinse and repeat

New Leadership Model: An Exercise in Bifurcation

Dan Pontefract

My thinking, learning, and writing tends to fall into the theoretical camps that propose how technology, leadership and learning can (or should) converge to improve the health, productivity and culture of an organization. Isolating any of them does none of us any good.

Exercising the right to talk rubbish

Euen Semple

Following on from yesterday''s post about standing up to bullies it occurred to me that bullying can be more subtle and widespread than we assume. And we all give in to it. Every time we put someone down for talking rubbish it is a small act of bullying. It makes them feel small and us feel more powerful. This happens all the time at work. That pervasive tone of disapproval so cultivated by managers who see their job as saving their organisations from people who talk rubbish.

Blogging as an Exercise of the Brain

Irving Wladawsky-Berger

Yes, there is one other such activity in my life - physical exercise. I started exercising regularly while living in Manhattan around 1980. I then discovered that jogging on a treadmill did not bother my knees, so I was able to continue exercising. In addition, I have included weight training in my exercise regime. So, for almost thirty years now, I have been been exercising five days a week on average. Regular exercise is a critical part of staying healthy.

Designing Learning is a Probabilistic Exercise

Clark Quinn

At the Guild’s recent mLearnCon, I was having a conversation in which I was reminded that designing performance interventions is a probabilistic exercise, and it occurred to me that we’re often not up front enough about it. And we need to be. When we start our design process with a performance vision , we have an idea of what ideal performance would be.

Real learning – let’s not confuse it with completing templated exercises

Charles Jennings

Questions for the New Year

John Hagel

One interesting exercise is to reflect on what parts of our lives are generating the most questions. As we’ll see below, it likely means that your curiosity has atrophied and needs more exercise. We all have the capability for curiosity, but many of us have not had an opportunity to exercise it and, as a result, it’s atrophied. We need to find opportunities to exercise and cultivate these capabilities and it starts by asking hard but rewarding questions.

Tools 234

Sunlight is the best disinfectant

Euen Semple

We are seeing this power exercised more and more. Sure there is a risk of vigilantism and mob rule, but if we all exercise our judgement and "volume control" on which stories to amplify and which to turn down, we have at our disposal a powerful tool for good. I have just been listening to a Longform podcast interview with Noreen Malone who wrote the New York Times cover story about women raped by Bill Cosby.

Pointlessness

Euen Semple

In it she describes an exercise in which she visited the same seat in the same cafe every day and wrote about what she saw. A pointless exercise. I saw reading her pointless writing as an even more pointless exercise. I am currently reading Natalie Goldberg''s The True Secret of Writing. No more meaning or purpose than that. She reproduces each day''s writing in the book. At first I wanted to skip this section - to rush ahead to the next bit of instruction.
