It&#039;s at the heart of intrinsic motivation. <BR><BR> <b>Community</b> is about people: feeling respected, cared about, and recognized by others. It drives our sense of connection and belongingness. <br><br> <b>Cause</b> is about purpose: feeling that you make a meaningful impact, identifying with the organization&#039;s mission, and believing that it does some good in the world. It&#039;s a source of pride. <br><br> <div align=right><b>Credit: </b> <a href="" target="_blank">The 3 Things Employees Really Want: Career, Community, Cause</a></div> </blockquote> <br> The results are maybe not too surprising but the item that jumped out at me was community as I have been trying to document just what it <a href="" target="_blank">community means in my blook</a>. It is still work in progress to some degree and I'd love any feedback you may have.

I love <a href="" target="_blank">his blog</a> and read every post. He has had a profound influence on my thinking. <br><br> Next year, I hope to see his long awaited book published but in the mean time if you are looking for a succinct introduction to his work take a look at these <a href="" target="_blank">takeouts</a> (by <a href="" target="_blank">Sonja Blignaut</a>) and video from a TedX talk he gave in November 2017. <br><br> It's an 18 minute summary of the key aspects of his work and a wonderful resource for anyone looking for a succinct introduction.

They need never be scientists if that is not their calling but they simply need to understand how science works. <br><br> <blockquote id="nomargins"> Science is not a collection of facts; it is a way of viewing and studying the world. Teaching the scientific method for kids does not expect them to reason as miniature adults, but kids can use a simplified version of the scientific method to explore their world. <br> <ol><li>Ask a question. </li> <li>Learn as much as you can about it.</li> <li>Come up with a hypothesis (a possible answer/solution).</li> <li>Do experiments to test what you believe. </li> <li>What did you find out?</li> <li>Tell others what you learned. </li></ol> <div align=left><b>Credit: </b> <a href="" target="_blank">The Scientific Method for Kids</a></div> </blockquote> E33A243323912A6080258241005917B3 Wed, 28 Feb 2018 09:40:55 +0000 David Gurteen Blog Post: The Listening Project: intimate conversations between friends or relatives By David Gurteen<br><br>The BBCs <a href="" target="_blank">listening project</a> is a fascinating one. <br><br> Since 2012 the BBC have been collecting intimate conversations between friends or relatives, to build a unique picture of our lives today. They have collected over a thousand so far, and most are being broadcast on BBC radio and are being archived by the <a href="" target="_blank">British Library</a> to preserve them for future generations. <br><br> Go <a href=" " target="_blank">listen here</a>. Each conversation is only a few minutes long. <br><br> The project was inspired by <a href="" target="_blank">StoryCorps</a>, an initiative set up in the United States. Their mission is “to provide Americans of all backgrounds and beliefs with the opportunity to record, share, and preserve the stories of our lives”. The conversations are stored at the <a href="" target="_blank">Library of Congress</a>. <br><br> Here are two wonderful tasters for you, the first from the BBC <a href="" target="_blank">Mother and daughter Ama and Jan talk about Racism on the Rise</a> and a delightful mother and daughter conversation from StoryCorps <a href="" target="_blank">I love your more than a unicorn and I really love unicorns</a>. 404411AEFBC363A4802582360042A866 Tue, 27 Feb 2018 16:05:43 +0000 David Gurteen Blog Post: Will the future economy be a knowledge economy or a human economy? By David Gurteen<br><br>There is opinion that the Knowledge Economy does not exist or is a <a href="" target="_blank">myth</a>. Or that maybe it should be termed the <a href="" target="_blank">Information or Digital Economy</a>. <br><br> People are also increasingly talking about the <a href="" target="_blank">Human Economy</a> or the <a href="" target="_blank">Caring Economy</a>. <br><br> I personally think in terms of the Human Economy - as it is broader than just caring. The concept is a simple one. <br><br> As technology develops, especially AI, there are going to be <a href="" target="_blank">less and less traditional jobs</a>. The machines are going to take them. We can see the impact already. <br><br> The jobs that will be left will be the "human ones" - the jobs ONLY human beings can do - the "caring jobs"- the jobs that require human warmth, touch and empathy, nursing, healthcare, education etc and of course other work that only humans can do such as entertainment, the arts and sport. <br><br> These will be the only jobs available to the vast majority of "young people" with or without skills or a University degree. <br><br> There will still be a Knowledge Economy but it will be for the few - the people who program and tend the computing machines and digital infrastructure. <br><br> Jack Ma has some <a href="" target="_blank">interesting views on education</a>. <br><br> Will the future economy be Knowledge based or Human based and what are the questions we should be asking? <br><br> <div style="text-align:center;"> <iframe width="702" height="395" src=";feature=oembed" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> C1F43D18FD70BF35802582410031929A Tue, 27 Feb 2018 15:51:23 +0000 David Gurteen Blog Post: Jonathan Norman interviews me about Conversational Leadership By David Gurteen<br><br>If you have 15 minutes and would like to learn a little about Conversational Leadership then take a look at this <a href="" target="_blank">short video interview</a> that Jonathan Norman of the <a href="" target="_blank">Major Projects Knowledge Hub</a> held with me recently. <br><br> <div style="text-align:center;"> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" allow="autoplay; encrypted-media" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> <br> You will find my blook on <a href="" target="_blank">Conversational Leadership here.</a> 9430D5541BC32F8C8025823C0060C03E Tue, 27 Feb 2018 13:58:49 +0000 David Gurteen Blog Post: Gurteen Knowledge Tweets: February 2018 By David Gurteen<br><br>Here are some of my more popular recent tweets.
