How we learn – some reflections

Thanks to Clark Quinn’s article Two good books on learning, I decided to read one of his recommendations: Benedict Carey’s How We Learn. It turns out the book is quite focused on the way students learn in school, and on a brain focused cognitive science view of learning. Benedict divides his book into four sections: The cognitive basis of learning, based on how the brain works. Techniques to help us...

How to take charge of your learning and development

During several years, I have engaged in Harold Jarche’s Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM), especially via his PKM workshop. It has helped me not only to revise my methods on how to understand the world. It has also placed me in the driver’s seat regarding how I seek information, make sense of it, and lastly share it. A clear example is my e-book “How to avoid information overload using social media...

Culture, Machine Intelligence, and Ways of Working

As my followers know, I have written about the digital workplace for some years. Lately, however, I have grown somewhat tired of it: It seems we either only talk about the latest semi-smart upgrades in Office 365 and how they can be used, or some futuristic views of how we will work in 5 years from now. In one sense these are interesting subjects. In another sense, they are somewhat...

How #PKMastery helped me create a blog on #AI

I have attended Harold Jarche's Personal Knowledge Mastery (PKM) workshop twice, and they have been wonderful learning opportunities. There is a kind of meta-learning involved that I seldom experience otherwise: I learn about how I learn. One of the images Harold uses to describe PKM is this Image borrowed from Harold Jarche's site Harold describes PKM as: PKM is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make...

Grow new habits with liminal thinking

I just discovered that I could grow new habits with liminal thinking, and it has already changed how I see things. By reading Liminal Thinking by Dave Gray, I was not only presented with tools to change my view of the world. Through reading this book, I also re-opened the door to the world of philosophy. Far too many have asked why I started my academic road studying practical philosophy and even asked me how...

Mapping the Neo-Generalist in you

“The neo-generalist wanderer often has to adapt to contextual shifts and reinvent themselves when circumstances call for it.” (from The Neo-Generalist) Recently, I finished reading an excellent book called “The Neo-Generalist,” with the Zen-like subtitle “Where You Go Is Who You Are.” Kenneth Mikkelsen and Richard Martin wrote this book – two authors that clearly have wandered between specializations, and learned a lot from it. The book hits a current issue right...

On the road again

This week was the first after the lovely Swedish summer. Once back, I learned that two companies want to buy Haldex. One company, ZF, is now left and we need to wait and see what happens. If they buy us, we take one road, if they don’t, we take another. Meanwhile, I turn up the sound on the car stereo and have as fun as possible going forward. There is...

Three versions of the #futureofwork

Recently, I came across three articles and reports that are describing the future of work: The changing world of work, by Microsoft and Poptech 9 ways the workplace will be different in 2050, by Business Insider The Future of Jobs, by World Economic Forum Going through each of these reports and drawing all necessary conclusions is a big task. But I would like to see if there are any similarities regarding how...

Create – the fifth C and the humane digital workplace

This is the sixth post on my journey towards working with a humane digital workplace. It started with “Building a humane digital workplace” (listing the 5 Cs) and was followed up with “Connect“, “Communicate“, “Collaborate“ and "Coach". The fifth and final C is Create, and the 30.000 feet overview of our intent with Create is that we: Are responsive, adaptive and open to new ideas Dare to do things differently Challenge the traditional...
