Learning with 'e's: Letting go of the past

Learning with 'e's: Letting go of the past | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.
Sometimes it can be difficult to let go of the past. But often, it's the only way we see any progress. Not only do we need to learn, we sometimes need to unlearn and relearn. That could mean breaking down a long established belief or perception.

This links in well to what we are trying to do with these Scoop.it pages.


Basically it's saying that leadership is idiosyncratic. What works well for one person may not be appropriate for another. 


You need a variety of approaches to help different people. The article advises using personality type tests like MBTI, it's worth noting that most of these have been proven to be inaccurate and even harmful although they do still have their uses.


We believe that Scoop.it is a great way to provide a drip feed of current ideas and thinking to spark ideas and debate, it's up to you how you choose to use them.

Why We Stop Learning: The Paradox of Expertise | Psychology Today | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

How to keep learning when people think you know it all. 


It is hard to let others know that you don’t know everything they think you know. But it’s also essential in order to let yourself out from this self-presentational vice (“I’m the expert, but how do I stay an expert without others seeing I’m not an expert at everything”).

The Confidence/Competence Loop

The Confidence/Competence Loop | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it
Using the confidence/competence loop can drive performance and inform, inspire and ignite those you lead. Jump-start your confidence with these application techniques.

 

There are several basic areas of study that, as we study them, we can become more effective coaches and leaders.  This long list includes both human behavior and learning.  The psychological concept I want to talk about today comes from the intersection of these two fields of study.

 

Don’t worry; I’m not going to go all academic on you (though you could, with a simple web search, find lots of scholarly work on what we are going to talk about).

 

Here is the concept – the confidence/competence loop.

 

We all recognize that our success accelerates when we are confident.  The reason is simple.  Without confidence we revert to fear, and when we are fearful we don’t take any action.  We get tentative, we delay and we procrastinate.  When you are able to let go of fear, you take action more quickly and easily.

Love Learning's insight:

I like this concept.  It has worked for me in the past in situations where I woudl like to be more confident.  To me it's all about being prepared and knowing my subject.  If I am competent at what I'm doing, confidence comes naturally!

Confidence is one of the most important personal qualities for succeeding in the workplace. Sometimes it doesn't matter how much you work or how skilled you are, it is how you project yourself that matters to co-workers and employers.

My favourist suggestions...8) Speak up and 10) Focus on your contribution.  All too often, we worry that people will judge us and this fear is rarely justified.  By putting this fear aside and focussin on the positive contribution we can make rather than how we're feeling, you're tkaing the first steps in building your confidence at work.

Learning a New Language Expands the Brain | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it
Learning a new language makes the brain grow, according to researchers who studied young recruits at the Swedish Armed Forces Interpreter Academy by measuring the brains of participants before and after the language training.


There's also evidence that suggests learning a second language can reduce the likelihood of Alzeihmer's onset.


There's growing evidence that contiuous lifelong learning is healthy for you and your brain. It's exercise for your brain.


If you want to learn a language, why not try duolingo.com - it's a free effective language learning tool. (it won't work on our network so wait till you get home)

Managing Oneself

Managing Oneself | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

Companies today aren’t managing their employees’ careers; knowledge workers must, effectively, be their own chief executive officers. It’s up to you to carve out your place, to know when to change course, and to keep yourself engaged and productive during a work life that may span some 50 years. To do those things well, you’ll need to cultivate a deep understanding of yourself—not only what your strengths and weaknesses are but also how you learn, how you work with others, what your values are, and where you can make the greatest contribution. Because only when you operate from strengths can you achieve true excellence.

Throw Your Life a Curve

Throw Your Life a Curve | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

As you build your career, your initial progress is slow. But through deliberate practice, you gain traction, entering into a virtuous cycle that propels you into a sweet spot of accelerating competence and confidence. Then, as you approach mastery, the more habitual the work becomes, the less you enjoy the "feel good" effects of learning: these two cycles constitute the S-curve.

 

Understanding the S-curve of skill development can help you be less discouraged when you are acquiring new skills, and it also explains why you need to throw yourself a curve once you have achieved mastery of a skill.
