Why Meetings Are Wonderful Learning Opportunities

Why Meetings Are Wonderful Learning Opportunities | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

 

I see that meetings are getting a bad press again. Nick Boles, the Planning Minister, is reported to have said that departmental meetings are a waste of time. 'You don't discover anything in meetings ......you only find out what is happening when you are out and about.'  

 

I quite understand that the best way to find out what is happening on the ground is to be 'out and about' but I can't agree that 'you don't discover anything in meetings'. It depends, of course, on what Nick Boles wants to discover. I am fascinated by meetings despite the fact that most people grumble that  they take up too much time, go round in circles,  are badly chaired,  are just talking shops,  are boring.......and so on.

The Biggest Mistake A Leader Can Make

The Biggest Mistake A Leader Can Make | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Thanks to Procentus I’ve recently been introduced to a video blog from the Harvard Business Review on the biggest mistake a leader can make with ten insights from top academics and business thinkers. What they have to say may surprise you.
David Hain's insight:

"It’s interesting to me that not one of these top thinkers said the biggest mistake a leader can make is in not paying attention to the sales pipeline, or hiring the wrong people, or letting expenses get out of hand. All of these biggest mistakes have to do with fundamentally who the leader is. Their integrity. Their understanding of something bigger than themselves. The breadth of their vision."

Seven Ways To Be Indispensable At Work In 2013 | Forbes

Seven Ways To Be Indispensable At Work In 2013 | Forbes | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

by Meghan Casserly

 

“The prevailing wisdom has been that to get ahead, you should learn something from one company and move on—and up—at the next,” says Brian Kropp, a managing director at CEB, an executive advisory firm which offers data analysis of more than 50,000 employee surveys from 10,000 organizations. “But that only produces short-term effects. In the new workplace we’re seeing greater emphasis on relationships,” he says, which means veteran employees are at a far greater advantage. According to CEB research, longer-tenured workers are beginning to rise to positions of success more quickly than those who move every few years.

 

"So what does this mean for 2013 career resolutions? Ditch the job boards and set to work making yourself an indispensable employee.

 

“Being indispensable is about being the best,” says Lucy Leske, Vice President and Co-Director,Education Practice at the executive search firm, Witt/Kieffer. “If you’re always striving to be a better, more valuable contributor, people will inevitably take note and you will get ahead.”

Without further pontification, seven simple strategies to becoming indispensable in 2013."

Annette Swann's curator insight, June 24, 2013 8:07 PM
"Barbara Kellerman refrains from providing a ready-made recipe for how to develop better leaders, but she suggests that we take a stroll back in time when, in many ways, leadership was taken much more seriously than now and where mastery thereof was perceived to be a journey of lifelong learning. Two of the world’s leading thinkers, Confucius and Plato, were both strong advocates of this viewpoint."

15 Secrets of the Most Successful Self-Learners | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

For many curious folks, their impassioned yearning to soak up as much of the world’s wonders as possible completely transcends the boundaries of a traditional classroom. Armed with an insatiable lust for knowledge, they set out to acquire it on their own terms, although a few pointers obviously can’t hurt before departure and landing!

 

Not every possible technique will necessarily stick with all self-motivated learners, of course, but the only way to find out is to test them. Try some of the following and experiment with what works in a more independent educational setting.
