Ignore Your Performance Goals, Increase Your Performance

Ignore Your Performance Goals, Increase Your Performance | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

Why are learning goals so important? Think about it this way: if you and your team's abilities stay the same and your performance goals continuously increase, pretty soon you won't have the ability to achieve them. Thus, to stay ahead of the curve as your performance goals increase, your ability must also increase. When you and your team members focus too much on performance goals that interfere with your attention and your devotion to achieving your learning goals, you are bound for failure: how soon depends on how much your performance goals increase, how able your team is now, and whether those new goals require new skills.

You might have a superstar on your payroll and not even know it.


How many people on your payroll have undetected talents?

Now, I’m not talking about discovering who’s the best bowler for the company team, or the best face to feature on the company website. No, the mother lode is the employee whose résumé was great on its own but much more humble than the candidate proved to be.

Finding that talent is a challenge, but there are some steps you can take to encourage your superstars. Try these ideas

Talent, Passion, and the Creativity Maze

Talent, Passion, and the Creativity Maze | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

"The labor of love aspect is important. The successful scientists often are not the most talented, but the ones who are just impelled by curiosity. They've got to know what the answer is." Arthur Schawlow

 

Intrinsically motivated people are more creative because they engage more deeply with the work. So when recruiting..

First hire for passion as much as for talent.

Second, nourish that passion.

Finally, look to yourself. If you don't have passion for your own work, you'll end up disappointing both yourself and those who count on you.

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.

Leaders: Are You Spoon-Feeding Your Employees?

Leaders: Are You Spoon-Feeding Your Employees? | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

Leaders who fall into the trap of completing their team’s work are not only stifling the team members’ growth as leaders, they are holding back their own growth as leaders.
If the leader is called upon to solve all or most problems, the company does not benefit from the brainpower of all its employees.
If the leader leaves or is unavailable, the remaining employees will not be equipped to solve problems on their own. On the other hand, if the leader asks his/her team to solve problems they encounter, there is a possibility for new and innovative thinking.

Are you an aggressive, self-directed learner? | Deseret News

Are you an aggressive, self-directed learner? | Deseret News | Developing yourself and others | Scoop.it

The single most important thing you can learn in school is how to learn when you get out of school.

Why? Because once you leave school and its structured learning environment, learning for the rest of your life will overwhelmingly be based on your ability to learn on your own — without a teacher, without a classroom and without a curriculum. It will be informal learning, and it will be up to you. Coming to competency will forever be your responsibility.
