Tom Hood's curator insight, April 16, 2013 7:37 AM

This says it all, "Lifelong learning used to be a cozy catchphrase popular in retirement communities aiming at the PBS/NPR demographic. No more. Today, it is an imperative for a sustained, successful, fulfilling career. And that’s the most important lesson of all. Every single generation. Every one of us."


In the CPA Profession we must change our mindset to one of true learning and skill development from the mindset if learning for strictly compliance. 


Involvement in your professional associations (like MACPA) allows you to gain real life leadership skills and learning from other CPAs in addition to building your network. 


In a world of rapid change and increasing complexity, the winners will be those individuals and organizations that can keep their rate of learning greater than the rate of change. We call this L>C.

Learning and leadership are inextricable.

donhornsby's curator insight, July 15, 2013 7:59 AM

(From the article): Teach to learn. Teaching is an amazing learning tool. Find someone whose curiosity dovetails with yours, but where you have more knowledge and/or skills. Mentor this person. Pass on what you know. Engage. Give back. In the doing, your own know-how will be refreshed and replenished. And you will learn from your mentee. I guarantee it. His or her questions will force you to expand your knowledge, and her beginners’ minds will deliver fresh insights. You will be renewed. A variation of this is to find a peer and become learning partners. Two brains are better than one; your curiosity and hers will spark new explorations, your passionate exchanges will strengthen you both.

An interesting examination of agile and some issues that might be encountered, however, the author while promoting the idea of "agile thinking" never specifies what agile thinking is or how to incorporate this approach into sequential project management. Many Web Project Managers are experimenting with a blended approach of sequential and agile thinking - if you are one, you will find this article of interest. If you are using Agile and encountering some of the problems mentioned in the article, you might gain some ideas on how to deal with these issues in your next product development.

Complexity, Leadership and storytelling

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."

Stories are a good way to get people from different backgrounds relating to the same set of circumstances and can provide a touchpoint for discussing their different needs.

The Perils of Short-Term Thinking

It’s hard to ignore shareholder demands for quarterly earnings miracles. But too often what looks like “success” today can inhibit a company’s competitiveness tomorrow.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, August 29, 2013 5:14 AM

Javier Gimeno, INSEAD Professor of Strategy, talked about the dangers of having too much focus on short-term results. According to his research this 'short-termism' can be destructive in the long haul.

 

He gives three tips to build a more long-term corporate culture:
* If you are thinking of taking actions just to optimise long-term earnings, don’t do it.
* Do things to attract long-term investors (to prevent overreactions to short-term performance evaluations).
* Review company incentives (unvested incentives force managers to look to the future rather than making stock-based responses today.)

Natalia Wentworth's curator insight, July 24, 2013 5:39 PM

This is so unbelievably important, especially if you have employees! Even as a dedicated entrepreneur, though, I find myself struggling with distraction. I know it's even worse for people who don't have as much motivation to perform.

 

Plugins that shut off access to certain sites are helpful, but I often find I get the most done when I block my internet access completely (though that's not an option for every type of task).
