Learning from Mistakes: Helping Kids (and each other!) See the Good Side of Getting Things Wrong

Learning from Mistakes: Helping Kids (and each other!) See the Good Side of Getting Things Wrong | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
by Marilyn Price-Mitchell, Ph.D. This article shows how learning from mistakes is good for children, examines research, and provides helpful guidelines to parents. Mistakes and misjudgments are a normal part of kid's lives.

 

Adults understand that making mistakes is part of life.

 

===> What’s important is how we learn from them. <===


Yet, many children are growing up in a society that pressures them to be perfect – to get the highest SAT scores, to land prized scholarships, to get into the best universities. Some parents complete or correct children’s homework to get them a better grade. So how does all this focus on testing and perfection affect kid’s learning?

 

===> And how can we help them learn from mistakes? <===

Dick Martin's Three Steps To Becoming A Better Business Leader - Forbes | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Joey Katona caught up with Dick Martin for a talk about his latest book and why empathy is essential to becoming a better business leader.

 

Earlier this month, I had the chance to interview Dick Martin, a telecommunications executive turned author whose fourth book for the American Management Association is OtherWise: The Wisdom You Need to Succeed in a Diverse and Divisive World (AMACOM, 2012). Through his work, Martin aims to steer readers – who inhabit a world of differences – toward common ground. Central to his vision is a global mastery of the skill of empathy.

There Is No Magic Pill For Great Leadership

There Is No Magic Pill For Great Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

I've been interviewing a number of executives for my new book, The Magnetic Workplace (Nicholas Brealey, 2013) and so far my findings have been rather interesting.

 

There is no magic pill for great leadership. Yet many organizations believe they can solve problems by handing someone a book (even if it's authored by me) or sending them to a one-day management training program at the local Holiday Inn. The results by themselves are usually disappointing.

 

Here's how great leadership is created:...

6 Reasons Core Values Matter

6 Reasons Core Values Matter | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Core values–or whatever you want to call them–are a BFD. Some folks might argue that they’re not that important, but I’d suggest they rethink that position because whether they think they’re important or not, core values are a big deal.

 

Here’s why they’re a big deal:

 

1. They encourage a sense of belonging.Humans are wired to want and need a sense of belonging, so why wouldn’t we want to createcommunities in our workplaces that provide the sort of positive, meaningful belonging that we’re designed to desire as human beings?

 

2. They promote loyalty. They’re like a stake in the ground, so to speak. The more certain sorts of values are internalized by the folks at an organization, the more likely people are to develop a sense of loyalty to the organization and those values.

Faking it: How introverts succeed

How can introverts succeed in a society with an extrovert bias? Writer Susan Cain describes the power of the introvert.

 

Recent research is showing that introverts often make better leaders. However, society, politics, corporations, and the Church still seem to crave the charismatic, sanguine, extrovert in leadership roles.

 

In fact, Jim Collins, in his book Good to Great, argues that charisma is often a negative indicator of "Level 5 Leadership."
