We are gathering more and more evidence to support the idea that emotional intelligence is crucial to a person's development--and that it is possible to teach and learn the skills of emotional intelligence.

10 Habits of Positive Educators

10 Habits of Positive Educators | Education and Training | Scoop.it
My mom is my role model for happiness. She taught me, years ago, that you do not just have good days, you CREATE them. Throughout the years, this quote has stuck with me and has shaped me into the person I am and the person I strive to be. This overarching idea of positivity has inspired me to create this post.

Most people may not realize that positive educators are habitual in nature. Here are 10 Habits, of the many, that I have curated to help shape my own mindset.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, September 12, 6:23 PM

I love articles like this because when I read them, I see just how many leadership skills storytelling helps with.

 

So imagine this -- by focusing on building your storytelling skills, on top of that you are building skills in at least 10 other hard-to-do areas. That's what I call being very efficient!

 

From the list in this post, here are the 10 skills storytelling will help you master:

  1. Listening
  2. Effective communication
  3. Managing expectations
  4. Coaching (story listening is also a coaching activity)
  5. Building up morale
  6. Recognizing great work (better to do through stories than examples)
  7. Better decision making (because you have better information via story listening)
  8. Team building
  9. Staying positive & enthusiastic

 

It makes sense to for leaders to pay attention to building their story skills because of the both large and small impacts they can have on people and organizations. Enjoy this post and story on!

A reminder that integrating storytelling into training and development helps create your future leaders.

The Simpler, Less Stressful Way to Helping Kids Succeed

The Simpler, Less Stressful Way to Helping Kids Succeed | Education and Training | Scoop.it

In the now-famous “marshmallow” experiments, researchers at Stanford tested preschoolers’ self-control and ability to delay gratification by sitting them in a room alone with a tempting treat and measuring how long they were able to wait.

Years later, those kids who resisted temptation the longest also tended to have the highest academic achievement.

Why Experts Make Bad Teachers

Why Experts Make Bad Teachers | Education and Training | Scoop.it
We’d all agree that to teach a subject, you must know the subject. So you’d think that experts would be the best teachers, but they’re not. The question is why?

To understand why experts have trouble teaching well, you have to understand what makes experts different from the rest of us.

People who are truly experts in a subject have knowledge most of us don’t. But that does NOT make them a true expert.

What makes them a true expert is understanding.

And with real understanding comes Abstractions.

Pourquoi les experts font-ils de piètres enseignants / formateurs ?
Etienne Bourgeois ajouterait aux arguments de l'article, que l'expert pourrait avoir tendance à accroître l'asymétrie entre les apprenants et lui, ce qui est peu propice à l'apprentissage.

RebeccaMoore's curator insight, August 13, 2:40 PM
Experts may make "bad teachers," but as teachers we need to remember our abilities and training that make us educators--model, lead, facilitate
Elizabeth Bowden's curator insight, September 2, 8:38 AM
From the article: "In order to teach efficiently, experts try to cut right to the chase. They teach the Abstract Model. Why? Because, they’re trying to save you all the hassle of learning it, “The Hard Way”. The problem is ... without Concrete experiences and many of them, it’s very difficult to understand the model."
