Bob Pozen, author of the best-selling book "Extreme Productivity," says that at the beginning of every course he teaches at MIT Sloan Executive Education, he asks the class if they consider themselves perfectionists, and half of them usually do. When he asks how they got that way, most point to their "exceedingly demanding" parents or former schoolteachers as wiring their brains that all tasks should be done with precision and care. "I think it’s not that people are born that way, but in many instances, they’re trained that way," says Pozen. He says that perfectionism can be an "unlearned habit." http://mitsln.co/VAK0302tijC

Being an introvert can be both an obstacle and an advantage. In this refreshingly candid interview conducted for the MIT Leadership Video Series, General Stanley McChrystal shares how his own introversion sparked awareness and shaped him as a leader. McChrystal is the former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan. He is interviewed by Hal Gregersen, Executive Director of the MIT Leadership Center. http://mitsln.co/nMaD302t6EL

Gregersen teaches in our program, The Innovator's DNA: Mastering Five Skills For Disruptive Innovation, coming up Nov. 14-15. http://mitsln.co/D9eB302t6B0

In the 21st century, a critical factor in business success is not just how efficient organizations are, but also how intelligent they are. Today’s technologies allow for wide-ranging communication at very low cost, enabling organizations to collaborate more effectively, to respond more quickly to business challenges, and to identify innovation opportunities. Running Sept. 27-Nov. 1, 2016, this new online course explores a new culture of collaboration that will allow you and your organization to be more productive, effective, and collectively intelligent.

Earlier this year, MIT and the world lost the legendary Dr. Marvin Minsky. He coined the term “telepresence” in an essay published in 1980 by Omni magazine in which he posited that, “Telepresence offers a freer market for human skills, rendering each worker less vulnerable to the moods and fortunes of one employer.” What a prescient insight into the rise of remote and distributed teams so many organizations use today.

Our team here at MIT Sloan Executive Education has been using telepresence robots for the past two years quite successfully as part of our flex-work policy. Encouraged by our own experience, we have started to think of other ways to use this technology beyond meetings and presentations, and how we can open up our classrooms to telepresence-robot-enabled participants.
