What High Performers Do When Things Get Tough | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

The cornerstones relied upon in the past for small business stability and growth have crumbled, leaving an expensive hodgepodge of misguided efforts and bipolar business strategies.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 15, 6:15 PM

Creativity is a chaotic place to be and for managers this is not where they want to be. They want certainty, but the real certainty is in uncertainty. This requires conversations and embracing the uncertainty along the way. Consider the way we hold curriculum as a plan that leads to learning. When learning does happen, it is because the classroom is a chaotic places where great conversations happen and bring meaning and life to inert outcomes.

John Michel's curator insight, Today, 4:56 AM

Social changes make it easier than ever to build and maintain relationships that matter. External boundaries such as time zones, location and means of communication have rapidly evolved. People can now share pictures, video, quick thoughts or even their current location with thousands of individuals with just a few clicks of a button. Business is now about rich conversations with an audience all over the world

Watch out: What you're not seeing in the office

Watch out: What you're not seeing in the office | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

I've learned the curse of the native eye extends beyond the work of a foreign correspondent. It relates to all of us, in our lives and in our offices, every day. We stop seeing what's odd, unusual or special about our environment. We take for granted how things are done. And we stop questioning the parts of the status quo that would strike any outsider as downright silly.
