Never Stop Learning: Why True Masters Are Lifelong Students - Lindsey Pollak

Never Stop Learning: Why True Masters Are Lifelong Students - Lindsey Pollak | Education and Training | Scoop.it

As I talk to successful professionals I admire, I am often struck by one commonality: They are committed to always studying their craft. To me, it’s lifelong learning separates those who will continue to rise in their fields from those who are content to just float along.

The Power of Offering Observations 

The Power of Offering Observations  | Education and Training | Scoop.it
As coaches, we have our #1 “Power Tool,” which is our ability to craft open-ended questions that allow our coaching client to dig deeper into their self-knowledge for what they already know, believe or feel about something they are exploring.

However, there is another “Power Tool” we have as coaches, which is the power of offering observations. We have a unique relationship perspective to our coaching client because we are able to offer a neutral, unbiased viewpoint to the client, for their consideration.

Why Smart People Don't Multitask - Multitasking Lowers IQ, Impairs Cognitive Processing | Education and Training | Scoop.it

You may have heard that multitasking is bad for you, but new studies show that it kills your performance and may even damage your brain. Every time you multitask you aren't just harming your performance in the moment; you may very well be damaging an area of your brain that's critical to your future success at work.

It takes time to refocus, so the supposed efficiencies are eliminated. As well, we do not attend to the people in front of us and the tasks at hand.
