The creation of robots whose intellectual capacities would surpass those of humans currently invites the entire scientific community to consider the future of humanity. If they calculate, read, write and analyze faster than we do, are robots even smarter? According to Navi Radjou and Prasad Kaipa, intelligence is not only about the ability to perform tasks, an intelligent being first of all has well-developed human qualities, such as ingenuity and wisdom. According to them, every human being possesses this human potential, which is unfortunately only rarely exploited.

We should not be afraid of the intellectual development of robots but rather of the under-exploitation of our intelligence. In the complex and interconnected world in which we live, it is essential to set up models of collaboration and symbiosis between companies and individuals, the creation and the functioning of these new ecosystems will be enabled by the emergence of the ethical and ingenious intelligence of each human being.

From Smart to Wise

From Smart to Wise : Acting and Leading with Wisdom

Leaders tend to obstinately stick to the leadership style that brought them most success in the past, usually one of two extreme styles: functional leadership that focuses on operational excellence or smart leadership that focuses on growth. When a leader’s focus is too functional, the organization becomes introverted and can focus too much on bottom-line profitability while missing out on top-line growth opportunities. But when leaders focus too much on smart leadership, the organization may experience quick growth but lose its effectiveness quickly.
From Smart to Wise offers a new approach that balances the two styles to achieve a form of wise leadership that is both functional and smart. Drawing on inspiring real-life stories of historical and contemporary wise leaders such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, and even Mahatma Gandhi, the authors identify six characteristics of wise leaders and offer a practical framework to help readers develop their own style of wise leadership.
