Really happy with our new paper—"The Moralization of Effort"—now out in JEP:G. The paper shows how people find the expenditure of effort morally good, even when the effort produces nothing of economic value.
🧵… Image
This was a real labor of love, years in the making, with 5 rounds of revisions. It was hard work, especially for 1st author & newly-minted PhD @JaredCelniker. The paper shows that this kind of effort makes people see Jared as more moral, and a more attractive cooperation partner
If there are 2 ppl producing the same number of widgets, of the same quality, but one of them requires less effort to do so, this low effort person is seen as ⬆️competent, but ⬇️moral. Further, he is less like to be chosen as a partner in a trust game than the high effort person Image

First, let's set the scene with a couple of key facts:

👉 In the UK alone, it is estimated that 1 in 5 people have a disability

👉 80% of those people have an invisible disability

👉 The UK workforce contains over 4.4m disabled people

Okay, now onto the bad stuff👇
#DYK that almost half of disabled people in the UK are unemployed?

By December of 2021, the percentage of disabled people who are either unemployed or economically inactive had risen to 47.7%

"The 🇯🇴 soldiers welcomed us at the border to sent us toward the camps. I told him 'wait a minute, I want to have a last look at Syria.'"

Memories of spending close to a decade working with @SavetheChildren for children and families affected by conflict in #Syria, #Iraq, #Somalia, #Myanmar, #Palestine, and many other places. And losing #cynicism, finding #purpose, and changing my perspective on conflict and war. /2
In 2011, I was sitting in an air conditioned office at @WorldBank in Washington DC. I thought I had landed my dream job. But instead I had tasted #bureaucracy, #hierarchy and the #cynicism of organizational politics. If you had met the 2011 version of myself, you would agree. /3

Options are limitless to start the entrepreneurial journey. It can be a struggle to decide where to start.

Here is a way to start taking action and getting clarity.

Take one idea and do a 30 day test.

Read the 🧵 to get started ..
First, set a few simple milestones. Examples:

1.) Build prototype or wire frames,

2.) Talk to X # of customers,

3.) Launch a landing page and land X number of inbound leads, etc.

Make the milestones as tangible as possible. Not just getting random opinions.
Next, execute on those milestones for 30 days and hit them.

The key is to execute like this is your permanent commitment.

Focus is important to get a personal feel for the business.

If you’re still working full time, calibrate the milestones to what can be achieved.

#Startups often get lost in the noise & don’t provide customers a reason to buy.

Positioning solves this problem, generates buzz and lands #sales.

It’s hard to get started. Here is a simple process to begin positioning now.

A thread .. it starts with some simple questions.👇
1.) What's the specific problem you are trying to solve (the more specific the better).

> How do you make the person (b2c) or company better (b2b)

> what is the specific ROI expected (more on ROI in this thread

NOTE: Avoid jargon and industry buzzwords here. Explain like over dinner with friends.

Next, you need to think about the person. 👇

We have had a busy 2021 and we look forward to 2022 which is brightened further with the spirit of Indovation and ideation. Cheers to each of you and your families. Image
2/n 2021 was a challenging year personally for many with #Covid 2nd wave but it presented professional opportunities for #startup ecosystem too. @SucSEED_IN built its maiden #AngelFund #IndovationFund, amongst overwhelming response & kept growing its strength as #AngelNetwork too ImageImage
3/n At #IndovationFund, we believe that early-stage discovery is best handled with the help of Experienced folks. We have great #SectoralCommittee structure helping us to discover, screen, curate, invest and mentor these startups, in 6 sectors of our #Fundfocus #SucSEEDfamily Image

This is the truth...A🧵
Everyday *THEY* game the system. Everyday we are forced to play their game with no ROI. It's rigged against #smallbusinesses & #startups outside SV/1% $. Building a biz is nearly impossible if you're not a wht guy.
Yet they avoid paying more taxes? 1/17
Social impact is not immune. On a website of an out of touch "social impact investor" (saw this today!) who only funds businesses 3 years + with annual revenue $750k +. Suggestion from their FAQ for startups is appalling for a fund claiming to help the neediest of businesses. 2/ A screen shot of black type...
"We require a minimum of three years in operation for financing, and thus do not fund start-ups. For capital to get your social enterprise off the ground, we recommend reaching out to friends and family, or an angel investor network in your area." Why didn't we think of that?! 3/

I was head hunted for my 1st NGO job, not because I was looking, but it was based on 2 recommendations from volunteer work.

Volunteering is one way to get an NGO job, to build your network, to develop skills, build experience and to grow your career.


A thread

Some jobs are not advertised, but you are invited to apply based on referrals.

My first paid NGO job was with KAF-Zim as a Programme Officer in 2002. The Res Rep asked for referrals from his network, 2 leaders I have volunteered for, separately recommended me for the interview.
At any stage in your career, you will not have the required skills or experience from paid wok, you can develop this from volunteer work.

I learnt program design and coordination from volunteer positions I held in high school, college and even now 20 years into NGO global work.

Excited that our paper: "Measuring the Occupational Impact of AI: Tasks, Cognitive Abilities and AI Benchmarks" has been published in Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research (@JAIR_Editor).

Here's a thread (1/10)
#EconTwitter #HUMAINT #futureofwork…
The paper is the result of truly interdisciplinary work with sociologist Enrique Fernández-Macías, computer scientists @NandoMartinezP , @emiliagogu and José Hernández-Orallo, and economists Annarosa Pesole and me. Also, help from @CharisiVicky, HRI researcher. (2/10)
We develop a framework with which we can measure the exposure of occupations to AI. Note: we use the term "exposure" not "substitution" to avoid feeding into that fear-mongering narrative of "robots stealing our jobs". (3/10)

Metis is very proud to announce a new strategic partnership with @opolis, a forward-thinking, member-owned Digital Employment Cooperative for independent workers.

To understand this partnership and how both Opolis & $METIS operate, it's time for a thread about the #FutureofWork
Around the world, independent/gig workers have struggled to gain the rights and protections afforded to salaried employees. We see this with Uber drivers, farmers, and countless other kinds of workers.
Opolis aims to change that. Using the structure of its digital employment cooperative and its $WORK token, Opolis will provide payroll services, health benefits, and much more for independent workers, building an ownership economy for the Web 3.0 world.

Little bit like their former communist friends (Russia) the leadership are getting their Oligarchs/Titans in-line & on-message before their potential big push.

How Organizational Network Analysis Can Increase Team Collaboration

latest from Workforce Futurist Newsletter is part of a series on ‘The New Technology of Teams’

This article is a collaboration with @fmarinmayer and @CTS_ONA (1/8)
All great work happens in teams.

Yet many management and HR processes are designed around the individual.

We need new approaches, and tools, to support successful teams.

#Leadership @VIDOInterVac #HRTech #CHRO
How is Teamwork Changing?

There's an increasingly decentralized workforce as many people work outside of organizational structures.

These workers are not working in isolation but forming new teams.
