Here are the resources to imagine a bright future and our ability to learn together. Selected by Rotana Ty for the week 15th-21st July 2019.
“Having the discipline to step back from the noise of the world is essential to staying focused. https://hbr.org/2017/10/in-a-distracted-world-solitude-is-a-competitive-advantage”
Go slow to go fast and together, right?
“Minimalism is not subtraction for the sake of subtraction. Minimalism is subtraction for the sake of focus.” HT @tnvora
From my network & moi
“Knowledge work is not performed by independent individuals but by interdependent people in interaction.” — @EskoKilpi HT @marshallk #wirearchy #NowOfWork https://twitter.com/marshallk/status/1149500886651064322” — @rotanarotana
From my Organisation, We Are Peers
From moi and my learning partners
“(…) how, together we can catalyze something bigger than any one of us. How can we combine and recombine our capabilities to unleash the adjacent possible. https://medium.com/@kareanderson/random-collisions-of-unusual-suspects-can-unleash-the-adjacent-possible-a864a8d0b9af” — @skap5 @TheBIF via @KareAnderson
On new ways of learning and working:
“Recruitment and training are too slow to respond to disruption. Experimentation, sense-making, collaboration and fluid knowledge-sharing are essential.” — @MichelleOckers
“try out new ways of working and learning. There are no best practices for creativity, only unique practices https://rotanaty.com/2018/05/05/on-digital-arts-third-places-enlightenment” — @hjarche
“Learning in the workplace is all about opening your mind up to new possibilities.” — @ActivateLearn (quoting myself) I know that our workplace is a “learning environment”. We just need to see opportunities that allow us to experiment, learn, create, co-create, reflect, share. https://twitter.com/rotanarotana/status/1148669299411828736”
“Social learning is not a ‘nice-to-have’. It is not something bolted on to formal education or training programs. Social learning is how humans have evolved in order to survive and thrive https://jarche.com/2019/04/social-learning-is-innate It is part of the human “social suite” — @hjarche
On business design and work cultures:
How do we move from command and control, and from obedience, to encouraging and supporting people in their work and learning journey? How do we foster a culture of continuous peer feedback, iterations and improvements?
Here’s the thread I have with @ThruWork:
“You address the systems in an org. It’s very design. Change the systems of recognition, reward, decision-making, communication. Systems guide behaviors and behaviors over time create beliefs. 1/2“
“Too often we ignore the elements of design and focus on direct behavior change (training) or indirect change (mission/purpose statements, directives on high). These fail or at best are short-term as people will undoubted follow the larger system 2/2“
“Communities are the best and most sustainable method to integrating knowledge, innovation, and culture across silos. https://communityroundtable.com/community-manager-role/communities-enable-thriving-and-adaptive-ecosystems” — @TheCR
“What is weighing down HR? — History” — @hjarche
“What is weighing down HR? /2” — @hjarche
