How often does miscommunication take a bite out of your time?
Studies from MIT’s Center for Collective Intelligence showed just how important effective communication is in Collective Intelligence Systems, in several key ways. One was that the ability to better understand another group member’s thinking, often included under the term “Emotional Intelligence”, which was a key predictor for higher-performing groups. Another was that diversity of thought was very important, but only so far as communication remained successful.
What qualities do you look for in an ideal leader?
Leaders can be exceptionally intelligent, empathetic, organized, and inspirational, but no one human leader today represents the ideal of all possible positive leadership qualities. No matter how amazing, any one leader is biological and evolved human neurology simply imposes limits on us all. “… all humans make mistakes, and all leaders are but human“, yet we now have the opportunity to augment leadership with collective superintelligence. With the assistance of Mediated Artificial Superintelligence (mASI) systems the employee collective can improve all aspects of leadership, but particularly those which are weakest in individual leaders, through a form of digital corporate transformation. This was in fact one of our first use-cases as a company and one which we applied to ourselves.
