I am calling this movement "The Great Curate" Where the trend is for leaders in each industry to  share the best content available in their industry with as many people as possible. Companies such as Scoop.it stand to make millions in the curation business.Guillame Decugis makes a strong point that brands can build their presence and attract a higher level of traffic to their websites and product offerings without having to create new content by curating the best and sharing it. It's faster and much less expensive to curate than to create and distribute original conten.Companies can accomplish more in less time and for a lower cost. That could be fabulous.

The Psychology of Getting Unstuck: How to Overcome the “OK Plateau” of Performance & Personal Growth

The Psychology of Getting Unstuck: How to Overcome the “OK Plateau” of Performance & Personal Growth | Leadership Training | Scoop.it
Something experts in all fields tend to do when they’re practicing is to operate outside of their comfort zone and study themselves failing. The best figure skaters in the world spend more of their practice time practicing jumps that they don’t land than lesser figure skaters do. The same is true of musicians. When most musicians sit down to practice, they play the parts of pieces that they’re good at. Of course they do: it’s fun to succeed. But expert musicians tend to focus on the parts that are hard, the parts they haven’t yet mastered. The way to get better at a skill is to force yourself to practice just beyond your limits.

What The Happiest People Know About Work

What The Happiest People Know About Work | Leadership Training | Scoop.it

Study, work hard, and you will be successful.

 

This was the mantra repeated by educators throughout my youth. None of them added "be happy" to the success equation.

 

But a growing body of research in positive psychology and neuroscience is demonstrating that happiness is the secret ingredient to success. It turns out, our brains are more engaged, creative, productive, and resilient when in a positive state.

 

All this unhappiness comes with a high price tag to businesses, costing more than $550 billion a year in lost productivity. In his book, Donovan identifies 60 simple steps individuals can take to improve their happiness and get back on the path to success. Here are six of the top things happy workers do:

Doing what you love can make you happy-- finding a way to make money while doing what you love is even better! 

Graeme Reid's curator insight, April 10, 2014 7:55 PM

If you don't enjoy what you do it is very difficult to be successful.  There are ways to re-frame the way that you look at things to help you focus on what is important to you.

Avoiding energy sappers is what led me to retire from teaching. It was not the students and parents. It was the bureaucratic and technocratic nonsense that went on in school which passes itself off as education.

How Kids Lose Their Creativity As They Age (And How To Prevent It)

How Kids Lose Their Creativity As They Age (And How To Prevent It) | Leadership Training | Scoop.it
Ever since the 1950s, children have undergone a test for tracking their creativity, in similar fashion to the IQ test. Professor E. Paul Torrance developed the series of tasks, which are administered by a psychologist, to a subject to measure the person’s ability to produce something original and useful. No [...]

1.       Teach creative problem solving over rote memorization. How to reach an answer is far more important than making the right choice on a standardized test and then forgetting the concept the next day.

2.       Teach kids to challenge assumptions instead of accepting things “as is.” Success is no longer about following an operating manual.  It is about imagining the possibilities and real-time innovation.

3.       Teach that mistakes are not evil, and should not be feared.Make sure kids learn that mistakes aren’t fatal – they’re simply the portals of discovery.

4.       Drive diversity of thought over conformity. World progress occurs by challenging conventional wisdom and approaching problems with fresh perspective.  Following the herd is a surefire path to mediocrity.

5.       Forster imagination and curiosity. No longer optional, creativity has become the currency of success for us all.  This applies to CEO’s and soccer-moms.  Musicians and military leaders.  Engineers and educators.

Struggling Teens often are those kids who cannot/will-not give up their creativity.  Those are not broken kids needing serious treatment, but confused kids trying to find their way and making poor decisions.  There are schools working on this creativity gap, and should be a model for mainstream kids. -Lon


Dr. Pat McGuire's curator insight, October 20, 2014 11:41 AM

When my children were small we spent a great deal of time being creative and playing the "what if" game to test out theories. That is not seen with children in my practice much anymore.  They are stuck in overly compartmentalized learning and playing.  Few of them know what to do if told to go outside.

 

We need to bring curiosity and creativity back into the forefront of child development and learning.  I see the loss of this as being as devastating as when children were told "Do it because I said so and don't ask questions."

Lions Go Digital: The Internet’s Transformative Potential In Africa

Lions Go Digital: The Internet’s Transformative Potential In Africa | Leadership Training | Scoop.it

Following a decade of rapid urbanization and strong economic growth, Africa is going digital. While just 16 percent of the continent’s one billion people are online, that picture is changing rapidly.


As the continent grows more connected, it is already producing innovative web-based applications and dynamic new business models.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, November 24, 2013 8:35 AM

According to their newly released report, today the continent’s iGDP (the contribution to overall GDP by the Internet) is at 1.1%.


Africa’s iGDP should grow to at least 5 to 6% by 2025, meeting that of leading economies including Sweden, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.


  • If Internet reaches the scale and impact that mobile phones have in Africa, iGDP could potentially account for 10% of the total GDP ($300bn) and produce a jump forward in both economic and social developments.
  • The top three countries leading the way in Africa are Senegal (3.3% iGDP), Kenya (2.9% iGDP) and Morocco (2.3% iGDP).
  • The Internet’s biggest impact on Africa seems to be concentrated in six key sectors: financial services, education, health, retail, agriculture, and government.
  • For companies working on these industries, that means having great opportunities if they are decisive and move fast.
