Tomorrow’s Leaders Need Diverse Challenges Today

Tomorrow’s Leaders Need Diverse Challenges Today | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Cynthia D. McCauley, coeditor of Experience-Driven Leader Development, introduces a career development lesson from It’s Not the How or the What but the Who by Claudio Fernández-Aráoz.


She draws attention to examples of how good companies rotate high-potentials through different experiences early in their careers to avoid one dimensional leaders dominating the upper echelons of the company

Matthew Farmer's curator insight, Today, 3:13 AM

Strong companies already have good talent management processes that enable them to provide more junior high potentials with varied experiences.  However these experiences need to vary more than they used to because the world is becoming more complex and business' role in society is becoming more integrated.


In addition, we need to find ways to expose more established leaders to experiences where they can broaden their perspectives. This can be more difficult because the roles they have are demanding, the salaries they command are more significant and lateral moves can be harder to identify and 'sell' into people.  Shorter, more intense, complex experiences with supported reflection and learning may be the answer.

From Curriculum to Culture, here is a School By Design! Developing a Growth-minded school is about growing learners into creative, risk-taking individuals with strong  intrapersonal and interpersonal skills.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, October 28, 11:57 AM

Developing a Growth Mindset in education is crucial to shifting the culture of schools and reimagine the role of teachers, students and parents in a new school paradigm where learning is not directed by knowledge acquisition but by developing and creating.

Why social media needs to be taught in high school - VentureBeat

Why social media needs to be taught in high school - VentureBeat | college and career ready | Scoop.it
There’s been a lot of discussion recently on what schools should be teaching kids. Just this month, the United Kingdom announced the addition of cybersecurity to its curriculum in response to a lack of education in the field and the rising industry skills gap.

I believe U.S. schools have been hesitant and even neglectful when it comes to how they discuss social media with students, and it’s time for this to change. Social media is a very real and ongoing aspect of our everyday lives: It no longer makes sense that, in 2014, several states still teach cursive writing when many students can text much faster on their smart devices. We need to be educating students on applicable skills for the world that they will interact with, and that means providing them with an understanding of how social media can affect their future. The gaping generational chasm between teachers who grew up before smartphones existed and students who were raised on them has resulted in a trial-and-error model of internet education and exploration, which could potentially wreak havoc on a student’s future. The internet is written in pen, not pencil.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, Today, 8:32 AM

1. Think about setting achievable micro-goals to encourage students’ consistent, incremental progress.

2. When students succeed, praise their efforts and strategies as opposed to their intelligence.

3. Help students focus on and value the process of learning.

4. Design classroom activities that involve cooperative--rather than competitive or individualistic--work.
