In this episode, David takes a step back to discuss the fundamentals of leadership in a connected world.
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.
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.
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.
