Bitcoin's Blockchain Offers Safe Haven For Malware And Child Abuse, Warns Interpol | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it
After showing how to "pollute" the Bitcoin blockchain with potentially malicious material, Interpol says the community should act. It's becoming increasingly apparent the blockchain, the public ledger for all Bitcoin transactions, could be abused for irremovable malware communications infrastructure, or a way to host links to child abuse images in perpetuity.

Two Ways to Clarify Your Professional Passions

Two Ways to Clarify Your Professional Passions | Executive Coaching Growth | Scoop.it

Have you ever noticed that highly effective people almost always say they love what they do? If you ask them about their good career fortune, they’re likely to advise that you have to love what you do in order to perform at a high level of effectiveness. They will talk about the critical importance of having a long-term perspective and real passion in pursuing a career. Numerous studies of highly effective people point to a strong correlation between believing in the mission, enjoying the job, and performing at a high level.


So why is it that people are often skeptical of the notion that passion and career should be integrally linked? Why do people often struggle to discern their passions and then connect those passions to a viable career path?

Karen Dietz's curator insight, March 28, 10:57 AM
One of the topics I always cover in my storytelling workshops is "The Art Of The Question". Why? Because when you are evoking stories from others, knowing the right questions to ask is critical. If you ask the wrong kind of question you won't get a story.Likewise, as you listen to the story, other questions will come to mind. What are those kinds of questions and how do you leverage different questions to go deeper into the story?Well, here's a handy chart and explanation to get you started. I really like the axis, and the discussion of what the different kinds of questions will get you.May all your listening bring you clarification and wisdom!
