We have shared over 100 episodes on the Human Current podcast and have explored the very essence of complex systems throughout many different conversations. We continue to learn from others about interdependencies, patterns, relationships, emergence, self-organization, feedback loops, and many more trademarks of complex adaptive systems. All of these concepts have helped us better understand the inner workings of our reality. They are packed with meaning and tangible understanding. Yet, there...
Employees are frustrated. Everyday, they are overwhelmed and inundated with a surplus of email correspondence. According to a McKinsey report on “The Social Economy”, employees have to spend one-fourth of their work day reading, answering, and sending email communication.These time-consuming tasks have become such a large portion of their job responsibility that they struggle to get actual work done.
It can take employees “around 16 minutes to refocus on their tasks” after each time they mana...
“U.S. team members waste up to 9 work weeks per year trying to collaborate on projects using an average of 4 partial tools” *
These days, most employees have to act as project managers by coordinating and communicating with multiple people on multiple projects. The problem is, most employees are not project managers, and they do not have the time or expertise needed to manage team communication.
Teams in today’s complex and fast moving business environment thrive when they mutually understand...
Humanity is in a crisis of consciousness. Society and the way we interact with each other is broken because we too often see the world in separate, static, and linear ways. Our reductive thinking keeps us stuck in the past, with no clear path for how to move forward, for we are in constant conflict with the complex, dynamic, and evolving world around us. Luckily, an opportunity for change is presenting itself. We have a new approach to the art of inquiry, called complexity science, which can ...
Quotes from this episode:
“It is the human desire for a simple, single, static answer to things that creates a contrast between what we want to see and what exist. Once we get over that desire for simplicity or simplification, complexity science will become the fundamental assumption of all science going forward.” — Tanuja Prasad
“I think the next century will be the century of complexity.” — Stephen Hawking
“For me, complexity science is a science of maturity.” — Tanuja Prasad
“If we accept ...
We are currently in a podcast series on the complexity of artificial intelligence and we recently shared our interview with AI researcher, leading Complex Systems Scientist, Professor of Computer Science at Portland State University, and external professor at the Santa Fe Institute, Melanie Mitchell.
Mitchell’s background originally stems from Mathematics and Physics. She became curious about how intelligence emerges from a complex system after reading Douglas Hofstadter’s book, Gödel, Escher...
Angie and I recently attended the WorkHuman Conference in our home town of Austin, Texas. The event is pioneered by Globoforce, a leading provider for social recognition solutions, who is dedicated to creating more human-centered workplaces.
We were eager to attend WorkHuman for many reasons. Their speaker lineup was definitely a major draw, for it included well-known leaders Brene Brown, Shawn Achor, Salma Hayek, Simon Sinek, and Amal Clooney, among others. However, there were more compellin...
