Attending HR Florida has given me another opportunity to catch the Talent Anarchy duo again. For the purposes of full disclosure I will say I like Joe and Jason, and come down squarely in their corner as a supporter. Understand that when you read this post.
Today I attended a three hour session on what they called Hacking. Now if you are like me you might think that the session had would be related to cracking computer security, but it was not. Actually the session involved solving problems and breaking them down into their smallest, most understandable/manageable unit.
After understanding the problem, then the two guided the attendees into how to create repeatable solutions. In performing the exercise in the session, we had groups of 5-6 people that were reorganizeId three different times. In an interesting twist, they had the group create a scenario, then we reorganized groups and then re-addressed the matter, and then repeated the re-grouping to complete the tasks.
This was a hands-on session. It was well orchestrated. Joe and Jason were acting more as facilitators today rather than presenters. They performed equally well in this role. These guys are going to be around for a long time and have a lot to say.
And for the record they have a new book which has been published recently. The book is called Social Gravity, and I will be writing a review of it after wrapping up at HR Florida. More later from HR Florida…
