Collective Intelligence

Collective Intelligence

October 2, 2015

Do you ever get the feeling your company is so wrapped up into process and efficiency that you never have time to actually do your work? This is one of several questions David and Justin tackle in this podcast titled “Collective Intelligence”. The duo explores what collective intelligence is relative to other “knowledge eras” in our history as well as why most organizations have trouble leveraging it. Finally, they discuss the biblical grounding of collective intelligence found in Acts 15 as well as some pragmatic questions to ask yourself about your organization and its collective intelligence maturity level.

Give and Take

Give and Take

September 25, 2015

In this podcast, Dave and Justin tackle the topic of “Give and Take”, based on the book of the same name by Adam Grant. The topic is explored from a variety of angles including how the emerging “digital nervous system” enables a new type of human interaction – one based on “reputation instead of regulation”. They share surprising research from the book noting that givers occupy both the bottom as well as the top of the business “success” pole. Finally, Dave addresses what the Bible has to say about this phenomenon as well as what “general revelation” has to say about it.

In this digital age, who knew it was still interpersonal (face to face!) interaction that matters. In this episode, Dave and Justin discuss why relationships are (still) central in the workplace by covering personal experience stories, examples from some of the most influential business leaders of our time, and the biblical grounding in “one-anothering” commands.

The Power of Networks

September 12, 2015

In this episode, we discuss the importance and power of networks in modern day business (as well as the world in general). Did you know that Christians in the early church were referred to as “the friends”? Sounds a lot like the social network concept we’re so used to these days, doesn’t it? In addition, many examples ranging from Uber, to modern day law firms, the freelance economy, and The Table prayer app were discussed through the lens of the Power of Networks.

We’re Better Together

We’re Better Together

September 5, 2015

The modern business world still seems to glorify the “independent genius” leader. But is that really the way to look at effective leadership? In this episode, David and Justin explore their fundamental thesis that innovation and superior leadership is more likely found in organizations that behave more like “organisms” and less like “mechanisms”. They also explore the biblical foundation of this organizational paradigm – the Body of Christ.
