An update on unhurried at work…

Tue, 28 Feb 2017 13:22:10 +0000

Three years ago I first blogged about the idea of Unhurried. It emerged from a series of conversations with my friend Antony Quinn. We share an interest in improv theatre and were reflecting on scenes that were satisfying to take part in and watch – and those that weren’t. We realised that the best improv […]

Navigating a post-modern economy

Thu, 09 Feb 2017 22:42:04 +0000

Roland Harwood at 100% Open describes five vectors of our postmodern economy. We do seem to be living in confusing if interesting times, where the benefits of hyper-connectedness are coming into question. Roland refers to Tom Friedman’s division of web people and wall people, and offers five guiding ideas for how we cope with uncertainty. They are […]

Bohm and dialogue

Sun, 11 Dec 2016 11:39:14 +0000

I spent Friday at a meeting experimenting with holding a Dialogue, based on the ideas of David Bohm. I was invited by Peter Kajtar who has dedicated a large part of his life to exploring Bohm’s ideas. Bohm’s writing is dense and often hard to understand but I have always sensed his wisdom; the experience […]

Fast, slow or unhurried?

Mon, 28 Nov 2016 12:56:15 +0000

Neil Perkin describes two contrasting talks about Fast and Slow in Marketing. Adam Morgan shares some interesting examples of businesses that thrive on speed: a 2014 Harris Poll.. found that 90% of respondents… expected real-time customer service from brands and as many as 48% expect that services will be delivered before they order them. ‘Uber’s children’, […]

Everybody is dealing with how much of their own aliveness they can bear and how much they need to anesthetize themselves — Adam Phillips Many of us complain that work meetings are predictable, frustrating and — most of all — a terrible drain on our limited time. In theory, organisations want their meetings to be full of life. In practice, not […]

Bringing meetings to life

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 14:36:18 +0000

Many of us dread meetings at work. Too often they’re dull: they follow predictable patterns, and people struggle to stay engaged. After regular meetings, the gossip by the water cooler afterwards is usually more interesting, and honest, than the meeting itself. The best part of many conferences is the coffee break, when suddenly the whole […]

Organisational culture and its pitfalls

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 13:29:39 +0000

Keith Sawyer says you should avoid recruiting people who “fit your culture” if you want to support innovation. We know from creativity research that the most innovative teams have cognitive diversity. That means that each person has a different set of ideas, practices, and knowledge. This drives innovation, because the most creative ideas combine very different ideas. […]

The perils of abstraction

Sat, 15 Oct 2016 07:14:30 +0000

Charles Scalfini gives a concise explanation of a way experts often make bad teachers.  As their experience in a subject grows, they are able to form more and more useful abstractions. But they then attempt to teach their students these abstractions in ways that bypass the experiences on which they are based. If we add to […]

Having fun yet?

Wed, 12 Oct 2016 07:04:51 +0000

Viv spotted this New Scientist article: The paradox of fun. It’s a review of Ian Bogost’s new book, Play Anything. Its subtitle conveys something of its depth: The Pleasure of Limits, the Uses of Boredom, and the Secret of Games. Bogost argues that we’ve come to think of fun as enjoyment without effort, leading us […]
