It turns out that, as humanity, we have excelled at learning how to create inefficient, ineffective, obsoleting, disengaging, de-energizing human interactions. We have it down to four simple steps. First, focus only on outcomes. Second, git-r-done. Third, experience life elsewhere. Fourth, stick with the process in “the book.” That’s it.
Now, you might think that nobody does this. Not really. Evidence seems to indicate otherwise. See the links above.
And, we have found lots and lots of groups, all around the world, that are doing the opposite. They are evolving ways to create smart, cool, in-service-to-purpose, witnessing, inviting-engaging, energizing collaborative spaces.
So, it is not a given that we have to do not smart and not cool. Many normal people have figured that out. Let’s start doing smart and cool, like them, and stop doing not smart and not cool.
