Grounded by years of the author's research at MIT and elsewhere, this book explains how the social physics of interaction shapes our collective mind and how everyone can become a leader of their own swarm. Alex (Sandy) Pentland, Toshiba Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, MIT Media Lab and author Social Physics
The author explains how to communicate to bring together groups, or swarms, of people to innovate, showing how better communication leads to better collaboration and more innovation. He describes how to become the leader of a swarm by building its collective consciousness, channeling its energies toward collaboration. He puts forth a five-layer model of collaboration beginning with four key principles of social quantum physics empathy leading to entanglement, and reflection leading to reboot and refocus followed by tracking collaboration using the signals of central leadership, rotating leadership, balanced contribution, responsiveness, honest sentiment, and shared context. Then, team members can apply the laws of collaboration: transparency, fairness, honesty, forgiveness, and listening. He also details how to recruit and build an intrinsically motivated group for collaboration and innovation and uses examples from different companies for illustration, as well as showing how this style of swarm leadership can be applied by the individual, organization, and society. --Annotation ©2017 Ringgold Inc.
