Creating a Culture of Listening
by Kim Scott (15 mins)
Creating a culture of listening is essential for effective collaboration and achieving collective success. The process involves listening to ideas, debating and testing them, and making quick decisions. Managers should find a listening style that fits their personal style and create a culture in which everyone listens to each other. This can involve quiet listening or loud listening, but it's important to stick to the style that feels most natural and work on improving the dynamic with colleagues. Simple systems for generating ideas and addressing complaints can also help foster a culture of listening.

The Future of Learning
by Niklas GΓΆke (10 mins)
The future of learning is about adaptability, idea synthesis, and rapid learning. Knowledge is cumulative, but intelligence is selective, and the ability to make sense of information and combine many bits of information into a broad picture of the world is crucial. Multipotentialites, or people with diverse interests and skills, are adept at learning and adapting, and society should encourage them to be themselves. True intelligence involves integrative complexity, the willingness to accept multiple perspectives and integrate them into a bigger, more coherent picture. Learning is not just about doing, but about being open to changing perspectives.

Parkinson's Law, How to Read, & More
by Sahil Bloom (3 mins)
The author discusses the concept of Parkinson's Law, which states that work expands to fill the time allotted for its completion. To be more efficient, it is suggested to condense low-value tasks into short windows and work on big projects in 60-120 minute focus blocks. The article also encourages readers to focus on important tasks that provide sufficient reward for their energy, rather than wasting time on small, insignificant tasks.
