What's In Our Toolkit
Confession: we geek out on new, bright and shiny ideas that we can add to our learning and design toolkit. And we get a kick out of sharing those juicy nuggets with others who might benefit.
Below are some recent additions you might enjoy.
Tiny Habits (BJ Fogg). Behavior can be daunting to influence. We find inspiration in how BJ "makes behavior tiny."
Institute for the Future. An insightful and provocative resource for seeing around corners. We rely on their Work + Learn Futures to help us stay tuned into the signals. And their Future Now blog is always provocative.
Thinkertoys (Michael Michalko). While technically this might not be "new" we still find it "bright and shiny." Recently, we resurrected this classic as our go-to-source for creative thinking techniques. The card deck is a great resource too.
The Overstory (Richard Powers). Sometimes the best insights come from seemingly unconnected places. This pulitzer-prize-winning novel has nothing to do with learning at work but it had a dramatic impact on how we think. Maybe that's why it struck us so hard and has stayed with us so deeply.
