Multiple Intelligences mean that we have the ability to learn in different ways. Every child should have the opportunity to explore how they learn different concepts, ideas, games, skills, language, music,etc, etc, etc... Gardner's Theory can be exploited in many ways.  One way is to examine a website such as http://www.homeschoolsource.co.uk where  a vast array of educational toys, games and reading material can be purchased for all children from pre-school up to university.

"Creativity always comes as a surprise to us; therefore we can never count on it and we dare not believe in it until it has happened. In other words, we would not consciously engage upon tasks whose success clearly requires that creativity be forthcoming. Hence, the only way in which we can bring our creative resources fully into play is by misjudging the nature of the task, by presenting it to ourselves as more routine, simple, undemanding of genuine creativity than it will turn out to be."

Dropping our self-importance and replacing it through humility leads to inner silence. We are able to see the world with clear eyes. And we see ourselves more clearly as we are. We no longer compare to others and we see others as equal. Humble people don’t see the own success as most important. They help others to become successful, too.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:48 PM

Thanks to John, David and Wise Leader!  Great scoop.

 

From the article:

 

Develop Awareness– Great leaders are self aware, organizationally aware, culturally aware, contextually aware, and emotionally aware. They value listening, engaging, observing, and learning over pontificating. They value sensitivity over insensitivity and humility over hubris. Leaders who come across as if they know everything haven’t fooled anyone – except themselves.

 
Doris Palomino's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:24 AM

The 5 key transitions the author proposes make you think about how great human beings we expect great leaders to be: (1) find purpose, (2) people first, (3) develop awareness, (4) shun complexity, and (5) get personal. And I could not agree more about the fact how many people assume the responsability to lead but only a few can do it well: "Average leaders spend time scaling processes, systems, and models – great leaders focus on scaling leadership".

Complexity, Leadership and storytelling | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"Yet while political organisations have always been a rich fund of colourful stories (who’s up, who’s down, who’s in and who’s out) and powerful visions (I have a dream …) this is excluded from the traditional account of managerial leadership. Our research highlights the distinctive ways in which storytelling serves strategic purposes for chief executives’ leadership behaviour. This short article outlines some of our headline findings and argues that storytelling should be recognised as central to the ways in which local authority chief executives act as leaders."

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain

Why is Storytelling so Powerful? A Look at What it does to our Brain | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Storytelling is one of the most overused and underused techniques at the same time. In this post, we are revealing what storytelling does to our brains.

Long before we had writing as we know it there has been an oral tradition of storytelling. This post looks at the science around storytelling.

Learn about how a story "can put your whole brain to work" and why "our brains become more active when we tell stories."

Socrates said “Know Thyself”. Self-Awareness is the ability to know oneself deeply and act from that knowledge.  It includes being clear about what we do well, what motivates us and what upsets us. It includes being able to see ourselves as an outsider would see us and recognizing triggers and emotions as they arise so we can manage them.

This is a really informative article, as a lot of people are under the impression that they need to meet 100% of skills listed within a job description. If most of the criteria is met and you can read the actual involvement of the role then this is the most important part. Speak with consultants over the role and see if you match up and can do the job - don't forget if you are at least half way there, you can grow into the role.

Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset: How Your Beliefs Change Your Behavior

Fixed Mindset vs Growth Mindset: How Your Beliefs Change Your Behavior | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Via Karin Sebelin, Melissa St Hill

Karin Sebelin's curator insight, June 25, 2013 5:36 AM

So many people are their own obstacle for success and personal happiness. They have a fixed mindset instead of a growth mindset. 

Carol Dweck, a researcher at Stanford University, well–known for her work on “the fixed mindset vs. the growth mindset.” describes the difference between these two mindsets and how they impact our performance:

"In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it." 
— Carol Dweck, researcher at Stanford University

People who have a growth mindset are more likely to maximize their potential. They tend to learn from criticism rather than ignoring it, to overcome challenges rather than avoiding them, and to find inspiration in the success of others rather than feeling threatened.

If you believe things about yourself like …

- I am not a natural athlete
- I am not a math person
- I am not creative
- It's hard for me to lose weight

you have a fixed mindset and don't trust yourself. 
You are afraid to fail.
And in the long run your fixed mindset hinders your ability to learn, grow and develop new skills. 

How may we change our mindset?

So easy - through the right thinking. Never let results define you - your talent, your scores, your weight, your job, your performance, your appearance - you only become the victim of a fixed mindset. When you dedicate yourself to showing up each day and focusing on the habits that perform a better identity, that's when you learn and develop. It's your daily actions that will change what you believe about yourself. It's about setting a schedule and sticking to it. Not results matter, building the right identity matters.

DON'T TRY TO WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP ...
DON'T TRY TO WRITE A BESTSELLER ...
DON'T TRY TO GETTING SIX PACK ABS ...

... train, write and be active on a consistent basis and develop the right thinking and identity behind!

We need a new generation of leaders. And we need it now. We're in the midst of a Great Dereliction — a historic failure of leadership, precisely when we need it most. Hence it's difficult, looking around, to even remember what leadership is.

Excerpt from Umair's blog post: 


We're surrounded by people who are expert at winning — elections, deals, titles, bonuses, bailouts, profit. And often, we're told: they're the ones we should look up to — because it's the spoils and loot that really matter.


But you know and I know: mere winners are not true leaders — not just because gaming broken systems is nothing but an empty charade of living; but because life is not a game. It isn't about what you have, and how much — but what you do, and why — if you're to live a life that matters.

Don Cloud's curator insight, August 29, 2013 11:32 PM

Here's a question (asked several different ways) every leader should be able to answer (and if you can't then perhaps this is something you need to think long and hard about).

 

What is your "why"?  That is, "why" do you want to lead?  What is your personal leadership purpose?  What is your individual purpose in leading?

 

If you can't answer the question of your own "why", then you may find it extremely difficult to create the "why" of your organization or understand the individual "why" of each of your people.

 

(Hint: As a leader, try to answer the question without referencing yourself)

The premise of the study was that public company performance hinges largely on the ability of these two key groups to work together and make sound decisions on risk, strategy, and leadership continuity, and thus, factors affecting these dynamics play a critical role in organizational success.
