Ten magical thoughts to let go of | Aspire-CS

Ten magical thoughts to let go of | Aspire-CS | Ever Growing | Scoop.it

"I see plenty of examples of magical thinking by leaders every day about those who report to them. Uncovering this kind of thinking requires some reflection because it’s often below the surface.

Magical thoughts create ineffective action. They sap your energy. Letting go of them allows you to be able to use that energy for things that are more positive, realistic, and productive. You can uncover your magical thoughts by considering the things that frustrate or irritate you as a leader.

Here are some of the magical thoughts I’ve noticed from leaders, and some ideas on remedying them"

Study Identifies 12 Characteristics of Really Bad Bosses | Ever Growing | Scoop.it

“When people were asked to chronicle their worst boss, they either cited lack of character or competency,” said Longenecker. “When we teach leadership, we now focus on character and competency. The list of bad traits leans very heavily towards character issues.”

from the article:

 

Here are Longenecker’s 12 characteristics of really bad bosses:

~Are unprincipled, untrustworthy, misrepresent the truth, and lie.

~Fail to create clear direction and clarify performance expectations.

~Are ineffective at providing effective performance feedback and recognition.

~Are really bad communicators.

~Are erratic and have unpredictable behavior and moods.

~Take credit and avoid blame.

~Do not plan effectively and are crisis driven.

~Do not develop their people or help them get ahead.

~Do not solve problems or improve processes.

~Are technically incompetent and lack talent.

~Make unwise, ill-informed, and ineffective decisions.

Many of these principles apply to cross-generational learning that can take place all the time, everywhere if we figure out how to make it so.

This is a good article about shifts from traditional modes of learning and training to come in line with emerging trends in teaching and training. It presents a wholistic concept for how a teacher can combine analog and digital processes and concetps to ensure successful experiences for the learner.

Es una aplicación potente y muy fácil de usar que nos permite crear clips de vídeo reproduciendo una historia  con frases de texto que hayamos ideado entre dos o más personajes.

 

El video final se puede compartir directamente en Google+ o como un enlace para cualquier sitio que deseemos (por desgracia, no se muestra una vista previa o miniatura cuando se trata de compartir vídeo creado con StoryBuilder en Facebook).

 

Una gran herramienta.
