Five Ways to Benefit from Embracing Spontaneity and Disorder

These days it’s hard to avoid the admonishments of self-titled productivity gurus that we should take more control over our lives, calendars, and in-boxes. But there are countless examples of creative and entrepreneurial minds soaring to their greatest heights through the exact opposite approach.

Ultimately teachers strive to help their students 'learn how to learn'.  This is the topic of a free online course from Coursera. 

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, July 30, 7:57 PM

Este curso MOOC elaborado por la  Universidad de California en San Diego te enseña a como  aprender a aprender . Así como estos hay miles de cursos gratuitos a los que se puede acceder desde cualquier plataforma en línea. Uno elige lo que necesita en función de sus necesidades de aprendizaje. Si no se quiere entender que ello cambiara la enseñanza superior en pocos años, es estar ciego a lo que se viene. No hay futuro para la educación tradicional, no para el 90% de las instituciones educativas actuales si no cambian radicalmente su modelo educativo.

Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman

Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
Have you ever noticed how, as leaders, we’re often far more sensitive to people’s weaknesses than we are to their strengths? And once we’ve targeted a weakness, do you ever notice how common it is for us to slide into problem-solving mode?

Lately, I’ve been experiencing daily reminders of how this inhibits us from recognizing what people are good at and helping them use their strengths to serve others. I’m reminded of this every time I watch a teacher slide into editing mode before she provides a learner narrative feedback.  I’m reminded of this every time I watch an administrator rush to make judgments about the observations gathered during a lesson study. And I’m reminded of this every time I listen as two people on opposite sides of an issue fail to practice active listening or check their confirmation bias.

Motivating Employees? Here’s What So Many Leaders Get So Wrong

Motivating Employees? Here’s What So Many Leaders Get So Wrong | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

"The tips and tricks we’re used to reading about are largely driven by extrinsic motivation, a desire to earn an award or avoid punishment. Run a marathon to lose weight; study for a good grade; put in extra hours at work for that end-of-year bonus, or so the thinking goes"

What a great piece about how to really tap into employees intrinsic (internal) motivation -- instead of the usual external motivators like prizes, bonuses, etc.

 

And what's the first step mentioned for leaders to master? Storytelling!

 

Read the article for more insights on tapping into people's internal motivations, why external motivators don't work and how we get stuck there, and then follow the 3 steps that includes storytelling to generate the results you really desire.

Empathy: The Royal Road to Intimacy | Psychology Today

Empathy: The Royal Road to Intimacy | Psychology Today | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

What is more intoxicating than someone who is into you?

 

Let me explain what I mean by empathy and its' connection to intimacy. Empathy is when you resonate with your partner emotionally as your partner resonates with you emotionally. Not only that, but you transcend yourself and experience your partner's inner life, emotions, intentions, goals, and desires as your partner experiences yours. What could be more intimate than tuning into your partner as he or she tunes into you?

 

In case you are thinking this all sounds incredible, it is not. Researchers in Parma Italy made a ground breaking discovery. Recent scientific findings show that we have what are called "mirror neurons" that link us to others' internal worlds in a meaningful relationship. In a romantic relationship, matching mirror neurons act like mirrors and reflect each partner's thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and desires to the other. And so partners walk in each other's shoes emotionally, which is what empathy and intimacy is all about.

The collaboration curse | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it

Google’s New App Brings Hundreds of Museums to Your Phone | Creating new possibilities | Scoop.it
Not everyone can visit Sicily’s Valley of the Temples, home to some of the world’s oldest examples of classic Greek architecture. Nor can they view the soft colors of Claude Monet’s “Tiger Lilies” in person at Tokyo’s National Museum of Western Art. Despite being made for the masses, art and culture are often inaccessible. Google’s Cultural Institute wants to change that. In the past five years, the initiative has teamed up with more than 1,100 institutions to bring artwork, artifacts, and 360-degree museum tours online. In an update to its Arts & Culture app, the company turns your phone into a powerful portal for accessing and experiencing that art.

We're raising our girls to be perfect, and we're raising our boys to be brave, says Reshma Saujani, the founder of Girls Who Code. Saujani has taken up the charge to socialize young girls to take risks and learn to program — two skills they need to move society forward. To truly innovate, we cannot leave behind half of our population, she says. "I need each of you to tell every young woman you know to be comfortable with imperfection."
