Simple can be good, simplistic rarely is
My latest post (rant?) on LinkedIn's platform about the potential pitfalls of following (or blindly following) #sales tips, tricks and advice.  (Yes, another in the long string of attempts to ensure my unpopularity. ;-)

Interesting. Thoughts?
New research out of Harvard Business School has some interesting, and at first, seemingly counter-intuitive, implications for the way we coordinate problem solving with others.

In short, it may help to organize ourselves quite differently for information gathering and for solution generation. Both are important for problem solving, and yet, if we use the same kind of organizational structure for both, we may reduce the diversity of potential solutions from which to choose. 

This is network science put to good use. I've kept this write-up short and succinct (a two-minute read), but it includes a link to the actual paper for more details.

#networks   #collaboration   #problemsolving  

Special thanks to +Chris Sutton and +David Amerland for first calling my attention to this study here on Google+ (just one more example, by the way, of the network's superior ability to discover new information).

The case for simplicity, the 1000 dollar example was expected but really shows how little people read, ask yourself how can you make things simpler...for your clients, prospects, team members, etc. I think this is the key behind infographics, people want information but they don't want to read to get it. I also think this is the KEY for a successful presentation, presenting simply is empowering, presenting complicated theories is defeating.
