Why Managers Now Need To Become Leaders

Why Managers Now Need To Become Leaders | EFL and Psychology | Scoop.it

Successful managers today are no longer supervisors, nor are they deciders, but formulators of strategic intent. As the information economy takes hold and creates pervasive change, managers will have to evolve. Those who don’t adapt, will not survive.

Loneliness Can Kill You. Don’t Let It.

Loneliness Can Kill You. Don’t Let It. | EFL and Psychology | Scoop.it

Social isolation kills more people than obesity does—and it’s just as stigmatized. In a society that judges you based on how expansive your social networks appear, loneliness is difficult to fess up to.

Pascal, did you see this video I shared on the same topic the other day: http://sco.lt/6G6J8r. I think the video states the problem loud and clear.

Using Humor, laughing with others produce or enhance resonant relationships

John Michel's curator insight, August 26, 2013 3:11 AM

When you’re trying to support a new behavior, talk about the safe language you and your colleagues can use to support one another.  Have a laugh together, rather than at each other’s expense.

Rim Riahi's curator insight, September 10, 2013 10:15 PM

Humor can be a terrific help in lessening tension in a given situation.  This is a good example--and a good story.

John Michel's curator insight, July 23, 2013 8:36 PM

Adjusting your perspective to a place of forgiveness and gratitude allows you to no longer play the victim card.  Most of the time you are not a victim of anything other than your own vibration and level of attraction.  When you continue to blame someone else, you automatically give control of your life to someone else and thus set yourself up to be a lifelong victim.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | EFL and Psychology | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.
