“We need to be realistic. In this new era no one will hire or promote you because of what you know. Google already knows everything. Or will soon.” Bernard Schindlhozler of Google.
The obvious inference in this statement is that you will get hired and promoted if you can discover new information: in other words if you can think critically through deep questioning.
The reason for this?
Objective facts – knowns – are an important but small part of what propels a company; they are simply data, still in their native state.
Subjective issues – unknowns – are actually what companies must discover in order to evolve.
It is unsurprising therefore that companies demand people who can use known facts by changing their native state, and synthesizing this new information – uncovered through questioning – thereby producing new knowledge and insights, and communicating them as well thought-out opinions and proposed solutions. Preferably this is done in teams, thus leveraging the diversity of its members.
Facts are not knowledge in the same sense that crude oil is not rocket fuel.
The first quarter of the 21 st century is well under way, and working for a living has already been replaced by thinking for a living. The Terego Method© is a Structured Learning System with one goal: Intelligence Based Thinking.
Rotating team leaders direct members to use the Ten Step Terego Method© as they learn, re-learn and deploy the method, whilst working on an existing problem. It is Socratic Inquiry, and it is the best answer to today’s complexities. It removes the guesswork from problem solving.
