The most fundamental unit of disruption is the individual. The best way to drive corporate innovation is through personal disruption. Because the cycle of disruption is non-linear, the S-curve that we typically use is reimagined to gauge how quickly a new product or service will be adopted. There...

The Game Believes In You: How Digital Play Can Make Our Kids SmarterWhat if schools, from the wealthiest suburban preschool to the grittiest urban high school, thrummed with the sounds of deep immersion? More and more people believe that can happen - with the aid of video games. A small group of visionaries who, for the past 40 years, have been pushing to get game controllers into the hands of learners argue that games do truly 'believe in you.' Games focus, inspire and reassure people in ways that many teachers can't. Games give people a chance to learn at their own...

But what if, rather than being hardwired to compete or cooperate, we had actually evolved to do both? And how can we unpack the psychology of when and how to interact with people as our friends and...

Collaborative Intelligence: Thinking With People Who Think DifferentlyCollaborative intelligence, or CQ, is a measure of our ability to think with others on behalf of what matters to us all. It is emerging as a new professional currency at a time when the way we think, interact, and innovate is shifting. In the past, 'market share' companies ruled by hierarchy and topdown leadership. Today, the new market leaders are 'mind share' companies, where influence is more important than power, and success relies on collaboration and the ability to inspire.
