Daniel Goleman on Focus: The Secret to High Performance and Fulfilment - YouTube

http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/daniel-goleman-on-focus-high-performance-fulfilment/ Filmed at the Royal College of Music on 25th October 2013. 

Psychologist Daniel Goleman shot to fame with his groundbreaking bestseller Emotional Intelligence. The premise of the book, now widely accepted, is that raw intelligence alone is not a sure predictor of success in life. A greater role is played by 'softer' skills such as self-control, self-motivation, empathy and good interpersonal relationships.

Now Goleman comes to Intelligence Squared for an exclusive talk on the themes of his latest book, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence. Attention, he will argue, is an underrated asset for high achievers in any field. Incorporating findings from neuroscience, Goleman will show why we need three kinds of focus: inner, for self-awareness; other, for the empathy that builds effective relationships; and outer, for understanding the larger systems in which organisations operate. Those who excel rely on Smart Practices such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and positive emotions that help improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, May 19, 2014 3:49 PM

I've been following Goleman's work for decades. As I've mentioned before, infotention involves both practice of the inner skills of attention control (Goleman focuses on focus, which is one important -- but not the only -- attentional aspect that can be trained) and knowledge of how to use information tools. This one hour and 18 minute video lecture concentrates on the three kinds of focus.

I think Daniel Goleman is fantastic. His views on emotional intelligence is formidable. A youtube video to inspire you.....

*Self-learners: largely self-directed learners who take it upon themselves to find useful ways to learn.


This project seeks to empower the worldwide population of self-motivated learners who use digital media to connect with each other, to co-construct knowledge, to co-learn. Co-learning is ancient; the capacity for learning by imitation and more, to teach others what we know, is the essence of human culture. We are human because we learn together. Today, however, the advent of digital production media and distribution/communication networks has raised the power of co-learning to a new level.

Social Media Classroom

Social Media Classroom | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

Welcome to the Social Media Classroom and Collaboratory. It’s all free, as in both “freedom of speech” and “almost totally free beer.” We invite you to build on what we’ve started to create more free value. The Social Media Classroom (we’ll call it SMC) includes a free and open-source (Drupal-based) web service that provides teachers and learners with an integrated set of social media that each course can use for its own purposes—integrated forum, blog, comment, wiki, chat, social bookmarking, RSS, microblogging, widgets , and video commenting are the first set of tools. The Classroom also includes curricular material: syllabi, lesson plans, resource repositories, screencasts and videos. The Collaboratory (or Colab), is what we call just the web service part of it. Educators are encouraged to use the Colab and SMB materials freely, and we host your Colab communities if you don’t want to install your own. (See this for an explanation of who “we” are).

An article about my appearance on the KQED Forum radio program, focusing on my remarks about infotention. -- Howard

 

"The onslaught of information from the wired world can be overwhelming to anyone — even the savviest online audiences. But rather than completely shut out the digital world, the smarter solution is to learn how to manage it, says author Howard Rheingold."

This is a great summary of Rheingold's ideas on focused attention in "Net Smart." If you're thinking about checking out the book (see other Scoop link), this is a great teaser.
