Digitization: Good work needs different perspectives
Because when it comes to deciding what machines work on, interpreting the results and developing new ideas, human-human cooperation is more valuable than ever.
Because different perspectives are required. And because machines lack something essential, namely intentionality, that is, the ability to consciously focus their actions on a goal. In addition, the more challenging the task, the more important the human-human cooperation. Because we are particularly capable of learning and creative with positive social interaction.
AI: Natural ability to cooperate
It seems that computers are a big step ahead of us when it comes to cooperation. Yes, they work together without reservations. The machine doesn't care whether the data comes from a Windows, Linux or Mac system. They do not withhold or reformulate information to gain an advantage. The result: machines are rapidly becoming smarter together.
Cooperation and cooperation is in the cradle for us humans. Already in the clans and tribes we felt an inner obligation to do justice to each other. We knew that together we would get better results faster. In today's working world it is about raising this natural ability to cooperate to a new level. From the small group, the manageable Team into a new, bigger We. Because we need more cooperative and collaborative intelligence than ever.
The social brain
People invest time and energy to get to know and understand others because they can then trust them better. People struggle to deal with conflicts. They feel the moral pressure to put their own interests behind group interests. Because we know that we can progress together than alone. Fortunately, we humans have been given extraordinary equipment for this. Our social brain.
With the so-called mirror neurons, we can anticipate the behavior of our counterpart and thus adapt to them. Our brains reward us with dopamine when we experience successful social interactions. In addition, we humans can come to terms with people with whom we have no social ties. This makes it easier for us to quickly adapt to different cultures, disciplines and interests.
Central driver of progress
Cooperative intelligence and intelligent cooperation - both need strong selves who have their own opinions and are willing to share them, even if it is controversial. This requires diversity, engagement and lateral thinkers. What sets the strong selves apart is philanthropy and the will to come up with a solution that benefits as many as possible.
Let's be honest: what would be left of us if we took away everything that we learned from others or contributed to? Not much! Cooperation is the central driver of human development as well as economic progress. Breaking down silos, cross-functional collaboration, think tanks, flexibility, collaboration and co-creativity. Isn't it exactly what currently best suits environmental requirements?
3 reasons for the cooperative cooperation between man and machine
Three good founders speak for more human-human cooperation, because cooperative intelligence shows and multiplies:
1. Humanity: establishing a relationship, emotionality
People are social and emotional beings. Every athlete, every musician knows the effect of cheering fans. It is easier to outgrow yourself with motivation. Our brain works much better in a positive social climate.
Encouraging and supportive signals help us to unlock our full potential. We rock each other up. This is how co-creativity arises. Our collaborative intelligence increases when we use exactly what machines don't have. Our heart.
2. Time factor: seek exchange, flexibility
The home office is very popular. Not only because it brings flexibility, but also to be able to work undisturbed. However, that is exactly what can prevent success because we do not exchange enough information.
Of course, this can also be done virtually, but personal encounters arise from attachment and closeness, i.e. the human spark, that cannot replace it.
3. Learning together: Allow communication, quality
Most of the learning does not take place in seminars, but in the workplace. Asking others or talking about your own learning experiences is not very popular in German offices. But that is exactly what promotes the common learning process.
So we think and work “out loud”. Let's exchange ideas with colleagues. Let's talk about experiences, results and - yes, also - about personal challenges. By actively overcoming each other, we overcome problems and obstacles more easily and learn faster.
