Another use for literature: ability to understand others, a precursor of empathy

Another use for literature:  ability to understand others, a precursor of empathy | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

Theory of mind' researchers find that reading serious fiction boosts one's ability to understand others, a precursor of empathy.

 

One thing that interests psychologists is the extent to which developing theory of mind is a precursor to the capacity for empathy. They are also looking at the way in which people with autism and sociopaths develop these abilities — or don't. And primatologists have demonstrated some of the rudiments of theory of mind in other apes.

Now, research by David Comer Kidd and Emanuele Castano of the New School for Social Research, published in the journal Science, suggests that reading literature improves these intuitive abilities. But not just any literature. Literature with a capital "L."

Carol Rine's insight:

This is the 2nd article I have read this past week about literature and its positive effects on the brain. Frank McCourt once said, "This is English. Queen of the Curriculum." I wholeheartedly agree. This article purports, "...may be the equivalent of aerobic exercise for the parts of your brain most involved in the theory-of-mind skills."

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

There have been many letdowns in my life and valleys along the way. I was promised promotions from managers that never eventuated, pay raises that I never saw, and opportunities that never came.

 

Today, however, I am so happy and where I wanted to be. I am financially blessed and in love with life. However, life was not always so happy. What are the keys to reaching your goals and being where you want to be?

 

1. Commit to give 100% in all you do.

From the first time in Grade 1 when teams and captains were chosen at school, I wanted to be the captain. I have always wanted to be financially successful and be a leader. Maybe it is because we were so poor as a family that I had to ride my old bike every morning to the bakery to buy 20 cents worth of 2-day-old chook (chicken) bread, which we ended up eating, or maybe because we could not afford real milk or butter.

The value of a life is always measured by how much of it is given away. At the end of one’s life, we celebrate the selflessness not the title, status, or accumulation. Selflessness is what makes our lives truly bigger than ourselves.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, September 20, 4:57 PM

Working with learners of low SES and whose environment more often than not ensures they have a fixed mindset, it is important that we help them to redefine what success is. Too often it is fixed around being rich, having a big car, house, jewellery etc. These learners then become preoccupied with looking for the short-cut to success, to the riches they believe will make them happy. It doesn't work out like that of course. How then to help the alter their thinking? 


Dweck's work is essential in this. But as this article states it cannot be seen as "a task to complete".  It requires a shift in thinking of all in an organisation, a movement for a whole-school way of thinking, involving also parents or carers.  This article by Costa, Garmston and Zimmerman provides a solid basis for promoting growth mindsets in educators.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 21, 9:13 PM

An art teacher and I (drama teacher) started to use a negotiated approach with students about 15 years ago.  By working with students to be aware of curriculum expectations and discussing "what would this look like" we assisted students with developingntheir own learnign pathways and expressions of their learning - in keeping with the legislated requirements of curriculum.  I've also noted over the years that elements of the International Baccalaureate - particularly the project work from MYP - reflects a similar approach.

Without reference to research literature, I'd speculate that this speaks to engagement, authenticity and relevance... and needn't be confined to K-12 contexts.... well-documented project work could be conducted outside the confines of formal classes and evidenced against formal assessment criteria.

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

You are a twentysomething entrepreneur ready to launch a new business and your emotions are running wild. You're frightened, intimated, and stressed, but at the same time you're enthusiastic and confident about what the future holds.

 

At this point, it's time to step back and listen to those who have been in the same situation.

 

It would be a foolish mistake and a missed opportunity not to value the advice, experience, and knowledge a mentor can offer. Put your ego aside; be a sponge and soak up as much wisdom as possible.

I was in this exact position prior to launching SDC Nutrition Inc. I was confident and probably a little too self-assured, but I knew I had to set aside my ego to listen and absorb as much invaluable advice as possible from my advisers.

Why Pope Francis Is So Effective: 8 Lessons for Every Leader

Why Pope Francis Is So Effective: 8 Lessons for Every Leader | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

Pope Francis has approval ratings any leader could envy: 88 percent of American Catholics think he's doing a good job, and nearly three quarters of Americans in general view him with favor. What is he doing right?

 

To answer that question, business author Jeffrey A. Krames examined His Holiness's approach from a leadership perspective, and the result is Lead with Humility: 12 Leadership Lessons from Pope Francis. Though a non-Catholic, Krames was inspired to write about the pontiff because he is the child of Holocaust survivors, he explains. "When I saw Pope Francis, I thought he was the anti-Hitler."


Here are some practices that make Pope Francis so effective--and that any business leader could use:

At some point in a story’s development, I usually end up covering a wall somewhere with a series of multi-colored notes that looks like something out of a crime procedural murder investigation.

 

The downside to all that is it’s hard to take all of the structure I put up on the wall and translate it into a digital format that travels with me while I’m using other tools to write the story itself. That’s why 3M created Post-it Plus, an app that allows people to use their iPhone and iPad to scan and digitize groups of sticky notes all in one fell swoop.

Rebecca Renck's curator insight, August 25, 9:43 AM

This is a wake-up call to something we already know.  Our world is changing drastically and this means in ever increasing relation to how we make a living and how our children will make a living in the not so distant future.  There are two points that need addressed now to support these changes and provide the best way to prepare our chidren.  Point one: we need to continue to modify education so that children get not only a basic skill set but also some specialized education as they become closer to the working age. 

Second,and maybe most important to us as parents, is that without the traditional office where most of us learned our work ethics and personal responsibility, along with many social skills as we came of age and entered the workforce, these things will need to be taught at a younger age.  Whether it be at home, school, church or organizations, a concentrated effort and / or instruction on integrity, self confidence, social skills, personal responsibility and time managament are needed.  Value based personal awareness curriculum need to be as important as math and writing skills. Even more important is the need to integrate more specialized skill and creative arts into their lives. Otherwise a young adult entering the workforce will not only have a difficult time being able to integrate socially and responsibly from a home office but will not have a skill set that he can market as a contractor.

Gifted children - Social emotional challenges

Gifted children - Social emotional challenges | Connected Educator #CE13 & Beyond | Scoop.it

"It often seems that gifted children are more…emotional, physical, spiritual, etc. requiring more energy from parents.

 

Below are some common social/emotional struggles faced by gifted children:

 

- Gifted preschoolers have disproportional development between their motor skills and their conceptual abilities. They may want to copy something they have seen or create something they are imagining and yet their fine motor skills are not able to perform adequately to enable them meet that goal. Consequently, they become emotionally upset, and the volcano erupts.

 

- Perfectionism is an on-going problem with gifted individuals, including preschoolers that want their product to look like their picture or idea. Their unrealistic self expectations may insure that they will feel inadequate and discouraged.

 

- Their struggles may intensify when they become overly cautious, as they see all the possible dilemmas and difficulties with activities. They may avoid trying something new. Coping with a tendency to bind up when facing new challenges can become a life-long frustration in decision-making.

 

- In peer relationships, often the gifted children find that they are more comfortable with older children and not so much with those of their own chronological age.

Many gifted children experience what is called “hypersensitivity”. They may be overly sensitive to the emotions of others and may overreact to peer and family issues causing conflicts. They may also be extra sensitive to the environment including noise, light, or confusion, sometimes causing difficulty in social settings"
