Research continues to learn more about how we learn, but it is not always easy to find. This post, by informEd, provides 10 suggestions based on current research, and each is discussed in more detail in the post. Below are three of the findings.

* To learn quickly, don't concentrate so hard. Over thinking can make it harder to learn.

* It matters what your learning environment looks like. Did you know that physical characteristics, "such as air quality, colour, and light" can together impact the learning process of primary students by as much as 16% in a single year."

* Understanding a student's learning process occupies the same space in the brain as practicing empathy. I suspect we have all experienced frustration when working with students, but to provide feedback that will help them empathy also plays a role.

Ron McIntyre's insight:

There are decided benefits for transparent companies. It is a known fact that people will buy more from someone the know, like and trust but that requires transparency. Being a large corporation makes this seem impossible but it can be done. Communities take a long time to build but they can be destroyed in one lie or broken promise so this is critical.

Anyone might bend, break, or stomp on the rules for any reason—from the pursuit of glory to the eternal and subconscious quest to fill the void left by the absence of parental love. But some identifiable factors appear at play:

Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

This is a tough issue because one of the first rules of business is to push the envelope so you can gain a competitive edge. Have we become so focused on catching people crossing the line that we begin to slide backwards? Integrity should be the foundation of sports and business and that means that we push to the line but don't cross it. It also means that we accept responsibility & accountability if someone should challenge, not blame someone else. Unfortunately, too many are jumping on the finger pointing band wagon so they avoid being viewed themselves.

Leadership: Why a perennial issue?

Leadership: Why a perennial issue? | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
Why is leadership a perennial issue?

For the third year in a row, leadership soared to become one of the most pressing talent challenges faced by global organizations. Nearly 9 out of 10 global HR and business leaders (86 percent) cited leadership as a top issue. Fully 50 percent of respondents in our survey rated their leadership shortfalls as “very important.” Yet only 6 percent of organizations believe their leadership pipeline is “very ready”—pointing to a staggering capability gap. (See figure 1 for capability gaps across regions and selected countries). Respondents’ overall capability gap in leadership, which has grown in magnitude since last year (figure 2),1 is striking, considering that leadership program spending has increased compared to last year.2

Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

I totally agree with Deloitte's question here? So few companies have any type of career planning for anyone in the organization. It is a part of leadership that must begin to get traction. Planning for succession is one thing but open, transparent career planning is another.

If nearly every company recognizes leadership as a critical talent problem, why are so few companies making any progress? ~ Deloitte POV

Ian Berry's curator insight, June 19, 1:57 AM

A key reason we're failing to make progress is only focusing leadership development on executives and designated leaders rather than focusing on everyone. Self-leadership is everyone's business and is the starting place to leading for others.

Identify your context and build everything around it

Identify your context and build everything around it | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
According to Lynda Gratton, work is no longer being defined by HR, but rather by ‘context’, which is created by the emergence of megatrends and their impact on society: “Work is being shaped by technology, globalisation, democracy and the ageing workforce, and the opportunity you have to make work as you want it,” she tells me.
“We are now faced with a “hollowing out” of work – medium-skilled jobs have disappeared and are being replaced by technology, so there’s either low-paid work or specialised high-paid work, with a huge emphasis on education and lifelong learning.”
And because people lie at the heart of corporate purpose, this means that organisations must build a context to innovate and excite them – which, for Gratton, presents a huge opportunity for HR to be positioned as ‘enabler’ and ‘inspirer’.

Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

Absolutely true. HR should be the heart of a company, not the stepchild but it has been commandeered over the last 2 decades. They need to become proactive advocates for change.

What should HR leaders do if they don’t have a seat at the table? “Leave. It’s not a place you want to be in. I think HR has to be courageous about that,” ~ Lynda Gratton

Ian Berry's curator insight, June 19, 6:17 PM

Like this from the article 

"For Gratton, ‘context’ is made up of three layers: your corporation, your supply chain, and those who support your organisation in the outer world. Successful leadership in this new era of work is about engaging with those three levels.

 “As we enter this new era of work, where change is the norm and employees and customers are seeking greater transparency, organisations must endeavour to help every employee be as good as they can be,” she says."

Putting CEO Pay in an International Context

Putting CEO Pay in an International Context | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
The Wall Street Journal reports that the pay gap between CEOs and rank-and-file workers at big American banks has narrowed in recent years. However, the leaders still made 124 times the average worker’s salary in 2014. The heads of five top banks made $18.5 million on average.

The huge pay packages of major players in the corporate and financial worlds are the subject of a lot of outrage, but they’re also a matter of great interest to economists and management researchers. Why would for-profit organizations, which generally try to keep costs as low as they can, pay so much to an individual employee?

Via David Hain
Ron McIntyre's insight:

I would love to see a follow-up study completed. With the impact of the crash has there been any major shifts either way. With the massive growth in millionaires and billionaires in the last decade there will be some interesting insights that could come out of it. In 2011 someone projected the number of millionaires would grow by 72.5% by 2020 to 68.5 million worldwide.
