There's More to Life Than Being Happy

There's More to Life Than Being Happy | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Meaning comes from the pursuit of more complex things than happiness

Lido transversalmente embora o título seja sugestivo, sublinho " Meaning is not only about transcending the self, but also about transcending the present moment -- which is perhaps the most important finding of the study, according to the researchers. While happiness is an emotion felt in the here and now, it ultimately fades away, just as all emotions do; positive affect and feelings of pleasure are fleeting. The amount of time people report feeling good or bad correlates with happiness but not at all with meaning."

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, January 22, 2013 8:39 AM

A must read.

Is there a difference between a happy life and a meaningful life? How do the happy life and the meaningful life differ?  

In a new study, which will be published this year in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of Positive Psychology, psychological scientists found that a meaningful life and happy life overlap in certain ways, but are ultimately very different. Leading a happy life is associated with being a "taker" while leading a meaningful life corresponds with being a "giver.

Take this: "Happiness without meaning characterizes a relatively shallow, self-absorbed or even selfish life, in which things go well, needs and desire are easily satisfied, and difficult or taxing entanglements are avoided".

Effective Group Coaching 101: The 5 Key Skills Any Group Coach Needs!

Effective Group Coaching 101: The 5 Key Skills Any Group Coach Needs! | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Group coaching is continuing to take root in many different forms these days. From group coaching processes that are part of a leadership development initiative, to public groups bringing together individuals with a common focus, group coaching is an "intimate conversation space".  In today's world group coaching provides an important space for conversation, dialogue and reflection for small groups of individuals. The synergistic experience of being part of a peer learning process is at the heart of the group coaching experience, which is grounded in the individual goals of each participant and, where applicable, the collective goals of the group.

This article explores five core skills any group coach needs, many of which we can also encourage group members to sharpen their own skills around.

Group coaching is an effective way to create a group positive energy. 


Contagious energy is easy to spread


ask questions in a relatively easy way and make sure you drill them focusing simply on positive igniting the negativism 


it might seem impossible however after some time  you will observe magic happening in the room 


We have inner power to create good energy. Focus on it !

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Competency-based or “personalized” learning allows students to master skills at their own pace with innovative support systems and new technologies. This method saves time and money and improves learners’ retention. But students are only half of the equation.

 

===> When teachers receive personalized professional development, everybody wins. <===

 

Like their students, teachers have unique strengths and needs. And when a tool can specifically cater to those needs, it empowers teachers to flex their educational muscles.

While I make use of these resources in my work at Stanford and my practice, almost all of them can be applied by a leader or manager within their organizations or by any individual seeking to self-coach.

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service

Leadership & Creating an Environment of Service | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

A lot has been said about the leader as “servant”. I expect, given that it is a relatively young term (having been ‘born’ in 1970), it is also subject to wide interpretation. As such, while some people will experience great results from their efforts to serve, others will consider it a fad that will go away if they ignore it. Still others will make every effort to embrace the notion of the Servant Leader but find themselves exhausted, confused and possibly resentful because people seem to be walking all over them.

So what to do?

(From the article): Feedback serves the purpose of enabling another to know where we stand and how they can grow.  After that, it’s up to them if they choose to listen, act or react.  Be a leader who gives others your best by giving feedback with heart and in service of them being and doing their very best.
