Menstrual Change

Respecting Cycles – Menstrual Change

We are approaching such a paradigm shift in the workplace, but we still have a long way to go. Just as white actors playing the roles of black actors and men playing the roles of women seems preposterous today, I believe, in time, we will consider some of our modern-day work practices absurd. This Thursday Thought highlights the need to consider the female menstrual cycle in a paradigmatic shift in work practices.


Orpheus and The Business World: Organisational Drag & Gravitational Pull

The legend of Orpheus and Eurydice is a story of love, faith and transformation. It provides a wonderful analogy for letting go of the past and having faith in the future.

To transform we must let go of the way things used to be. Yes, we must respect the old order of things, but then let go.

Drill is Skill: Innovation is Procedural and Declarative

Declarative learning happens through the hippocampus, a part of the brain that plays important roles in the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory. Declarative learning lends itself to explicit, conscious recollection. This type of learning involves a weak set of patterns, that is, I can explain it to you, but from a place of explicit understanding rather than implicit experience. I can explain the theory but not the experience.

Learning by experience is called procedural learning. In procedural learning, acquisition and memory are demonstrated through task performance. We experience by doing. This learning happens through the part of the brain called the basal ganglia, responsible for habit formation and repeat task formation. This type of learning involves a strong set of patterns, where, I can explain to you by drawing on implicit experiences. As I practice any skill, my learning patterns become increasingly ingrained, like the grooves in a vinyl record.

For innovation initiatives to succeed we must experiment and not just discuss.

Barbara Oakley Innovation Show

Learn Like a Pro with Barbara Oakley

Barbara Oakley struggled in the past with our learning. But has found techniques to help us master material—any material. Building on insights from neuroscience and cognitive psychology, she gives us a crash course to improve your ability to learn, whether you’re studying maths, language, coding, karate, cooking, or anything else. You’ll see why the strategies work because you’ll see what’s happening in the brain when you use them. No, this isn’t a little book of miracles.

But you will find that reducing frustration and improving your study success may sometimes feel miraculous.

Shannon Lucas Innovation Show

Priming Rust

Priming the Organisation For Change

The more painful, longer, more frustrating way is the only way. It takes time, it takes persistence, it takes hard work. When we prime the organisation for change, then the new reality will stick and the gloss will stay in place…temporarily.
