Your Brain on Learning

Most trainings fall down because we leave it up to the employee to go back and change their behavior when they go back to an environment that’s already rigged to have them execute the old habit,” she explained. “If they don’t have some intentionality, some chances to develop repetitions of doing it correctly, all the best intentions in the world will fall down.

Are you following through on money you are spending on leadership coaching and development? Thats where you get the bangs for your buck!

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, April 12, 1:26 PM

I also find that many training programs are excellent but when taken back to the job, leaders won't all the new practices to be used. Not it becomes a waste of money.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, April 13, 3:55 PM
It's about the durable maintenability, or the proficiency of putting into practice the human development (training, coaching, etc.)... I would add four remarks: 

 1. It helps a lot if the leader/manager still before the development shows a genuine interest, even enthusiasm about the development process. Then the participant will know that it is important, he/she should be easier motivated because the workplace is waiting eagerly his/her new or more finetuned skill. 

2. During the training/coaching the facilitator should make it possible that the participants have an as passionate as possible experience, either at the theory as at the practice part. I know, it's not an easy task but without it the money for the development is just thrown out of the window because nobody is learning on purely cognitive basis. If the heart is not there it simply run through without any seeable imprint, if a sort of flow/joy wasn't there, the topics handled are quickly fading...

3. At the end, still during the practice a sort of agreement should be facilitated among the participants (or in case of a personal coaching with the leader/manager and/or with some coworkers) how they exactly will practice in the everyday working relationships what they learned. 

4. After the reinsertion somehow the environment and the participants themselves should be informed and asked for mutual accountability warning in case somebody would fall back into the old habits... 

And you know what? All these are just simple common sense, you do not need for any neuroscience smartness. Of course, it works only if you do it accordingly...

Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right  

Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right   | Education and Training | Scoop.it

As teachers, it is essential that we make the process of providing feedback a positive, or at least a neutral, learning experience for the student.

So what exactly is feedback? Feedback is any response from a teacher in regard to a student’s performance or behavior. It can be verbal, written or gestural. The purpose of feedback in the learning process is to improve a student’s performance- definitely not put a damper on it. The ultimate goal of feedback is to provide students with an “I can do this” attitude.

How to Increase an Idea's Adoption Rates

How to Increase an Idea's Adoption Rates | Education and Training | Scoop.it
“Daring ideas are like chessmen moved forward. They may be beaten, but they may start a winning game.” [Johann Wolfgang von Goethe] We know from experience that formal leaders influence the behavior of those in their chain of command. CEOs, lead scientists, general managers, and so on. But there's a difference between power and status — some leaders may have status and no power, while others just the opposite. Those who have power and no status may still exercise control over others, as history attests. Without the formal power, status can help us be heard. Enrico Fermi was an Italian physicist at a time when physics wasn't held in high esteem in Italy. The 1938 Nobel Prize winner earned his leadership status through work. His consistent displays of competence, his support of peer scientists across Europe, his sharp intelligence and passion for physics, and some sheer luck, catapulted hi

I teach coaching skills to leaders.

We are not guiding if we are solving for the kids. We need to guide kids to their own solutions to the challenges that they face. Asking questions rather than giving answers tests our patience and our desire to "help," but we do not help if we simply give answers.

A Simple Guide to Design Learning - STEM JOBS | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Doris Wells-Papanek of www.designlearning.us published an article in “Innovation Journal” in which she said “Design is to doing as learning is to thinking.” Learning, Wells-Papnek explains, prepares students to think, and design enables them to do. The goal of design learning is to help students become great problem solvers as they progress through the steps of the design learning framework, challenged to be creative but mindful of the task put before them.

"Point-of-need should be determined by the workers as they face their work challenges to which they require additional confidence and competence to perform a specific action (or set of actions)."

This does not happen with teachers. Someone, other than the teacher, decides what the teacher needs. In my dissertation, I actually wrote that someon-other-than-the-teacher.

The reality is that most teachers do things that no one else can do. They connect with the unconnected, and they engage the unengaged. They work with the students that come from backgrounds most people can't fathom. Teachers leave a lasting mark on their students. That mark can either be positive or negative. Most work hard to be positive.

Thinking with our Whole Bodies

Thinking with our Whole Bodies | Education and Training | Scoop.it
The the aphorism mens sana in corpore sano (Lat.from Greek philosopher Thales) has come to mean that physical exercise is an important or essential part of mental and psychological well-being. Another way of translating from its ancient Greek origins is a healthy mind in a healthy body. The poet Juvenal used it in a Satire to say that the wise person understands these are the most precious gifts to attend to vs. fame and riches. We spend a lot of time exercising the body, or talking about it, and comparatively little in exercising the mind. The reverse case is also interesting — in Western business culture we spend considerable effort mining the brain and little or none using the body to comprehend, literally grasp. Our bodies have become a transport system for the head. Yet, as any runner would attest, the high endorphin from moving at any pace get
