Critical Thinking Takes Courage

Critical Thinking Takes Courage | Coaching | Scoop.it
Critical thinking isn't an entirely natural process; it's one that requires courage.

Via Suvi Salo
Lisa McCarthy's insight:

A really excellent article on something that can be hard to define and practice, and yet is such an essential skill for life.   I really like the distinction Terry Heick makes between thought and knowledge and the interplay between them.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 24, 9:59 AM

(From the article): To think critically requires you to aggregate knowledge, form some kind of understanding, get inside the mind of the clockmaker, judge their work, and then articulate it all for a specific form (e.g., argumentative essay) and audience (e.g., teacher).

Chris Carter's curator insight, June 24, 7:33 PM

Yes, and YES!!! Critical thinking really takes risk, because someone is likely to disagree with you. How much better it is, however, to have a well thought opinion and stand alone, than to be a lemming. 

Javier Antonio Bellina's curator insight, June 25, 11:38 AM

El pensamiento crítico requiere coraje, actitud y valor que no se fomenta en los sistemas educativos en general debido a los riesgos que conlleva.

Are you a fly by the seat of your pants type that always takes the chance that bad things happen to everyone other than yourself?


In the off chance that serious disruption happens to your business or in your personal life, how quickly would you be able to get back on your feet, if you lost access to key resources or data?


Has it been a long time since you reviewed what you need to effectively have in place to prevent long delays in recovering from any form of loss of information, data, documents or loss of access to resources you may need to survive personally or in business?

 

Will you take just a few minutes now, to read this excellent article, and make a note of the things you really should do to give yourself a basic level of protection against all sorts of calamities?

I am a great fan of using assessments for leaders and teams.  I also totally agree with Joe's thoughts here. Too many companies make them available but don't support coaching or support with them.  In my mind that is wasting your money.

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation

What Maslow’s Hierarchy Won’t Tell You About Motivation | Coaching | Scoop.it

Despite the popularity of Maslow’s Hierarchy, there is not much recent data to support it. Contemporary science — specifically Dr. Edward Deci, hundreds of Self-Determination Theory researchers, and thousands of studies — instead points to three universal psychological needs. If you really want to advantage of this new science – rather than focusing on a pyramid of needs – you should focus on: autonomy, relatedness, and competence.

An interesting viewpoint on Maslow scooped by Kenneth Mikkelsen. The core principles of Maslow's Hierarchy remain both valid and important for leaders to understand in addition to this, in my view. .

Sue Gaardboe's curator insight, November 28, 4:55 PM

This struck such a cord with me.  I can pin point the moment when I recognised that my life was my responsibility, and can see the energy that flowed from that realisation and how it's influenced every decision and action in my life. We introduce the idea to our students in a general way, (Why is it your Mum's fault that you left your homework at home?Isn't it your responsibility?) but certainly don't help them to appreciate it deeply in their lives.

Transpersonal Purpose

Transpersonal Purpose | Coaching | Scoop.it
When we no longer have a purpose, but become a purpose
Lisa McCarthy's insight:

 It’s a question of us uncovering a deep, authentic purpose inside us – a purpose which is natural to us, which is an expression of our innate potentials and inclinations – and aligning ourselves to it. Then we become the channel for a purpose which is flowing through us. Rather than us carrying the purpose forward, the purpose begins to carry us. We may not even have a clear idea about what our purpose is – but we trust it, and allow it to flow through us.
