There are layers of culture everywhere: formal to social, purposeful to subversive. Social approaches to learning, to leadership, to change, these tie into multiple layers. Social is a mindset as much as a channel, certainly a mindset more than just technology.

Social Leadership is that which we express within and alongside our communities: communities that cross formal hierarchies. Because of the inherently informal nature of these communities, our formal power counts for little. Instead we have to develop social authority: the authority of consensus and permission.
Back in Amsterdam: from the window i see smoke curling up from the chimney on the houseboat. It drifts lazily in the morning breeze, barely visible in the grey light. I wonder idly about life on a ...

Consider the farce of performance management & annual performance reviews: once a year defining objectives & targets, for someone who will probably only be in role for 3 years. It’s outdated & generally used as a mechanism to avoid giving a pay rise or, worse, awarding a small pay rise & expecting gratitude & loyalty to be bought (not earned) in return.

We need to evolve these systems, move towards more immediate & relevant models of engagement with teams: more community based & awarding social reputation & recognition, not paltry bonuses.
The theme this week is the future: yesterday, the evolution of knowledge, before that, the future shape of organisations. Today: the future of 'career'. Specifically, the subscriptions or community...

The emergence of wearable technology is transforming the quantification of me. The first step was connectivity: the always on internet. The perpetual connection to notifications. The second step was miniaturisation and the democratisation of sensors and capture. The inclusion of GPS and cameras in everything. The final step was interpretation and community: taking the technical data and creating meaning out of it. Using it to get me to do something: chiding and inciting, encouraging and providing feedback.
At just over five and a half hours, i only achieved 84% of my sleep target last night, and the sleep that I had was disrupted. On the plus side, my 11,628 steps smashed the 10,000 step milestone. N...

Before the learning starts (the PROGRAMMING part of choreography) we may use posters, teasers, trailers. What we can learn from films, music or entertainment. We are aiming for magnetism and viral quality. We need to offer clear invitations, clear permissions to engage, set clear contexts for what to expect and what is expected of you.
Yesterday i explored choreography for learning in the Social Age: it's really a call to arms, a recognition that we need to adapt, away from the old notions of learning being 'done' to people, towa...

Today i want to share a model for Social Learning. It’s at quite a pragmatic level: ‘what do we do about it?‘, rather than an esoteric discussion of ‘what does social mean?‘. I’m presenting a view of Scaffolded Social Learning: a way of balancing the structure and defined outcomes of formal learning with the collaborative, co-creative and ‘sense making‘ functions of Social.

I saw a video the other day of a small child discovering their shadow. They were walking along when they suddenly realised that the penumbra trailing close behind was somehow attached. A sequence o...

I’m reflecting on the disruption of design, which, you’ll note, is a two pronged statement. On the one hand, traditional methodologies of learning design are being disrupted by the realities of the Social Age: the rise of ‘sense making‘ communities, our evolved relationship with knowledge, the emergence of social authority, all of which require a different approach to learning. Then, secondly, the way good design disrupts our routine, breaks habits and enables us to form new ones through constant feedback, guidance and support.

Organisations that fail to adapt to the realities of the Social Age will simply be unable to weather the constant pulse of change or catch up with the accelerating motion. This is not like the old days, where we could watch the early adopters waste their money and invest heavily and then jump in on their coat tails: the environment is less forgiving, because the talent will move elsewhere. The market will move elsewhere. The world will move on.
Everything will change. As the Industrial Age required us to build factories and dig coal from the ground, as the Knowledge Age required us to buy computers and go global, so the Social Age will br...

The relationship between language and performance is fascinating: language creates a series of frames for performance to occur within. Two dancers can work to the same choreography, yet deliver two entirely different performances. Similarly, two people can read the same piece of poetry, and yet fail to deliver the same engagement: just listen to Dylan Thomas reading his texts in a monotone that nevertheless represents the meaning in more ways that simple words convey.
There are many written languages: French, English, German, Russian, each with a proud heritage and some common roots, their own nuances of meaning and intonation. Some share common alphabets, such ...

Trains transect spaces: urban to rural, city to the sea, valleys to highlands. And in between? Edgelands: spaces left unclaimed, unloved, spaces that form the thin black line between zones. Narrow, bordered by order, but in themselves chaotic, overlooked, lost. But not un-purposed.
