Academic Insights with Faculty Leaders
Energy – What’s Next?
Dr. Jay Apt, Professor of Technology; Executive Director of Carnegie Mellon Electricity Industry Center
Energy has always been a boom and bust sector. Prof. Apt will discuss some of the background on energy trends and pressures for change that wax and wane, with an emphasis on his specialty, electric power, as well as summarizing some of Tepper’s research on renewable electricity.
Collective Intelligence in Human Groups
Dr. Anita Williams Woolley, Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior & Theory
Most of us are familiar with the idea of "general intelligence" in individuals, but no one has systematically examined whether a similar kind of "collective intelligence" exists for groups of people. In two studies with 192 groups, we find converging evidence of a general collective intelligence factor that explains a group's performance on a wide variety of tasks. This "c factor" is not strongly correlated with the average or maximum individual intelligence of group members, but is correlated with the level of social perceptiveness of group members, the equality in distribution of conversational turn-taking, and the proportion of females in the group. Ongoing research explores the relationships among collective intelligence, diversity, and learning as well as tools for enhancing collective intelligence.
Staying Happy with What We Have
Dr. Jeffrey Galak, Assistant Professor of Marketing
The unfortunate reality of human psychology is that we are seldom happy with the things that we have. Whether it be because of comparisons with our peers, or simply because of boredom, the things we once loved seem to lose favor with us over time. Dr. Galak will discuss the psychological background of these problems and provide some remedies for how we can avoid them.
Mastering Your 70% Zone
Dr. Jeffrey R. Williams, Professor of Business Strategy
The most important capacity your organization has is the ability to regenerate itself. Gaining advanced commitments to the future by shifting your organization’s energy forward more effectively than your rivals is the ultimate responsibility of leadership. Here are steps that can help to identify, early on, and secure commitment to, those decisive initiatives that shape your company’s future.
