Learn From Others

Learn From Others | All About Coaching | Scoop.it
There’s no way to overestimate the importance of learning from the people around us.   When we’re open to learning from others, we benefit from their experience as well as our own and we can inherit their wisdom and knowledge.

 

Learning is a practice, not an event. Leadership and learning are invaluable to each other.

Make learning inspirational enough for us to dream more, learn more, do more and be more.

The Most Valuable Lesson I Learned from Playing the Violin

The Most Valuable Lesson I Learned from Playing the Violin | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

There is a specific type of practice that facilitates the attainment of an elite level of performance. And then there's the other kind of practice that most of us are more familiar with.

The first is Mindless Practice, the other is Deliberate Practice. 

Deliberate, or mindful practice is a systematic and highly structured activity, that is, for lack of a better word, more scientific. Instead of mindless trial and error, it is an active and thoughtful process of hypothesis testing where we relentlessly seek solutions to clearly defined problems.

It doesn’t matter if we are talking about perfecting violin technique, improving your golf game, becoming a better writer, improving your marketing skills, or becoming a more effective surgeon.

Life is short. Time is our most valuable commodity. If you're going to practice, you might as well do it right.

Here you will find five principles to speed up skill development.

The Best Way to Use the Last Five Minutes of Your Day

Ariana Amorim's insight:

From the article:

I was once asked: if an organization could teach only one thing to its employees, what single thing would have the most impact? My answer was immediate and clear: teach people how to learn. How to look at their past behavior, figure out what worked, and repeat it while admitting honestly what didn’t and change it.

If a person can do that well, everything else takes care of itself. That’s how people become life-long learners. And it’s how companies become learning organizations. It requires confidence, openness, and letting go of defenses. But here’s what it doesn’t require: much time.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 10, 2014 6:50 PM

The three questions we should ask ourselves at the end of the day are about learning and relationships. The key to all relationships is the first relationship we have everyday. It is the relationship we have with our self. By focusing on that and improving it, we help the other relationships in our life and perhaps beyond. It is kind of like a Christmas Carole everyday.
