That's why i heart this article by Co Design about the Girl Guides. My favourite part is about training hybrid thinkers...
Solving the ambiguous problems that plague our society, such as health care or access to clean water, will require working across multiple disciplines. Instilling the value of hybrid thinking--the mashing up of disparate disciplines--will ensure that we have leaders ready to tackle pressing issues.I've always tried to build cultures of hybrid thinkers. It isn't about one school of thought, it isn't even that i think hybrid thinking is a school of thought in itself. It's about different ways of thinking and different thinkers coming together to solve complex problems.
And that's the key:
Complexity doesn't mean we have to individually get smarter, but we have to smartly bring collective experience to the problem solving Team.
Being a hybrid thinker and being open to hybrid thinking just makes it that much easier.
