4-letter words. Warmer. 5 - 10 minutes. Intermediate to advanced levels. | Business and Education | Scoop.it

Procedure:

 

1 - Write a 4-letter word on the board. E.g "LOVE"

2 - Tell students it's the first word of a list.

3 - Tell them they will think of new 4-letter words to continue the list; 

4 - They can only replace 1 letter to form a new word; they can't add or delete any letter.

 

Example: LOVE - LIVE - DIVE - DICE ... 

 

Students play together as a class. You can establish a minimum number of words for a prize; 15 words for instance, so that it's challenging for them. 

 

It's a great opportunity to test your students' range of words and foster a lot of speaking.

 

Have fun!

John Michel's curator insight, January 22, 2013 11:29 PM

Organizations invest billions annually on a success curriculum known as "leadership development," which ends up leaving so much on the table. Training and development programs almost universally focus factory-like on inputs and outputs — absorb curriculum, check a box; learn a skill, advance a rung; submit to assessment, fix a problem. Likewise, they leave too many people behind with an elite selection process that fast-tracks "hi-pos" and essentially discards the rest. And they leave most people cold with flavor of the month remedies, off sites, immersions, and excursions — which produce little more than a grim legacy of fat binders gathering dust on shelves.

What if, instead of stuffing people with curricula, models, and competencies, we focused on deepening their sense of purpose, expanding their capability to navigate difficulty and complexity, and enriching their emotional resilience? What if, instead of trying to fix people, we assumed that they were already full of potential and created an environment that promoted their long-term well-being? In other words, what if cultivating a successful inner life was front and center on the leadership agenda?

I thought that the points on "deepening their sense of purpose" and "expanding their capability to navigate difficulty" were particularly interesting.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, March 9, 7:23 PM

Leadership development programmes often fall far short of expectations and rarely lead to long term change. Developing people is a process not an event.  Also check out - www.corporatecoachingnetwork.com.au

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 28, 2013 5:53 PM

Organizations led by courageous people, filled with courageous leaders and followers will be innovative. We need to move away from holding onto the past and pretending deck chairs rearranged on a sinking ship is sufficient.

Tony Brugman (Bright & Company)'s curator insight, April 15, 2013 9:17 AM

Great article by Dutch innovation professor Jeff Gaspersz on the role of leadership in fostering innovation. In short: While organizations "underutilize the creativity of their employees", stimulating creativity should be a "core task in leadership" and "will become a strategic priority."

 

According to Gaspersz, innovative leaders...

 

"...will challenge our old ideas and stimulate our curiosity in discovering new and unconventional viewpoints"

"...encourage their employees to be courageous and give them the space to act and even break out of the formation"

"...are (those) who stimulates me to think along new paths, question my own familiar practices and challenge my existing assumptions"

This article is from Eloqua and infograph from Eloqua and JESS3 marketing as we know it has changed quite a bit.

 

As technology has advanced, the industry has turned its eye towards more precise ways of measuring performance and engagement.

 

With the rise of the internet, mobile and social, you could see results as they came in. Science is the new buzzword.

 

You know the old lines and adages. “Marketing is a dark art.” “I know half my marketing budget isn’t wasted, I just don’t know what half.” These are common refrains of the marketing world.

 

Special announcement by Eloqua:

 

They're launching Eloqua Experience tomorrow, when modern marketers from around the globe will gather to show how they are using science and art.
