Joined-Up Thinking by Hannah Critchlow
A research review of Joined-Up Thinking by Hannah Critchlow.
Our good friend, Hannah, is one of the UK’s top science communicators. Her latest book is a fabulous expose of the latest neuroscience discoveries that support our collective intelligence. It’s a great read and we highly recommend it. It will change the way you think about the groups of which you are a part.
What It’s About: How humans work best collectively - coping with different opinions, biases, and leveraging the diversity of both humans and machines.
Why It Matters: Almost everything we’ve ever done as a species has been collective. Now it’s getting harder, more complex, and more machine-enabled. We need to understand how to bring more diversity, more effectively as we face more complex decisions.
Highlight: A team with more women is more intelligent than any other team. How about that.
Read It If: You want an accessible, comprehensive meta-analysis of the science of collective intelligence, intuition, and analysis written in Hannah’s unique and engaging style.
