Lior Zoref Breaks Down The Power Of Crowdsourcing

by Katie Pietrak
Lior Zoref, former Vice President at Microsoft, researcher, advisor, best-selling author, and TED speaker

We all struggle to make the best decisions possible. But what if we could make every important decision with the help of the smartest people in the world? Surprisingly, we can all access the collective wisdom of hundreds or even thousands of people who together are as smart as any expert advisor. 

Lior Zoref, a former Vice President at Microsoft, researcher, best-selling author, and TED speaker, calls this “Mindsharing,” a form of crowdsourcing that doesn’t ask people to think for us but instead to think with us.

Lior recently addressed a room full of CEOs in Washington, DC, and explained crowdsourcing through the prism of his own life. For example, by simply going beyond his own small circle of close connections for advice and support, Lior ended up on stage at TED, something he had always dreamed about. This is because Mindsharing allows us to harness our ‘weak’ connections to achieve our goals.

During his highly-engaging and interactive presentation, Lior broke down various ways organizations can draw on the creative wisdom of crowds to create a greater output with less effort. He shared techniques major corporations and individuals are using now to innovate and problem-solve in record time—all by using the power of “we.” For instance, Lior described how a mother's Facebook update saved the life of a four-year-old boy, and how a manager used LinkedIn to create a year's worth of market research in less than a day.

He also offered several practical tools to help the audience unleash the creative wisdom of the crowd to troubleshoot their biggest problems with innovative solutions and fundamentally change the way that they make decisions.

Lior truly brings refreshing new perspectives and new uses to the idea of crowdsourcing that will make you completely rethink the way you make decisions in every aspect of your life.
