The Hidden Curriculum of Work

The Hidden Curriculum of Work | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

What do you do for work? Not, what is your job title, or what’s written in your official job description? But what do you actually do?


It’s potentially the most important question you can ask yourself if you care about standing out, staying ahead of the change curve, and continuously elevating your performance to gain access to choice assignments and opportunities to advance.


This is because the value you deliver, the results you produce, and the impact you have on others come more often from the execution of unspoken intangibles that are not reflected in your title, job description, or the daily tasks and activities you’re responsible for. This severe mismatch is based on a fundamental misunderstanding of the true demands of work.

The hidden curriculum of work, is about what goes beyond your job profile. When you apply for a perticular post, you are accepting two jobs, one is the what you applied for, and the other is the interpersonal work, the hidden curriulum that goes with the post. The post of teaching includes your knowledge of the subject, pedagogical skills and most immportant of all are your inter-personal skills, your life skills, your attitude towards the learners, approachablility...etc.

Excellent discussion of something that I believe is often ignored and really forms the core of career management.

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

The good news is that even some of the most strained relationships can be repaired. In fact, a negative relationship turned positive can be a very strong one. “Going through difficult experiences can be the makings of the strongest, most resilient relationships,” says Susan David, a founder of the Harvard/McLean Institute of Coaching and author of the HBR article, “Emotional Agility.” The bad news is that fixing a relationship takes serious effort.


“Most people just lower their expectations because it’s easier than dealing with the real issues at hand,” says Brian Uzzi, professor of leadership and organizational change at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and author of the HBR article, “Make Your Enemies Your Allies.” But, he says, the hard work is often worth it, especially in a work environment where productivity and performance are at stake. Here’s how to transform a work relationship that’s turned sour.

Sometimes you get stuck in a rut with someone at work — a boss, a coworker, a direct report. Perhaps there’s bad blood between you or you simply haven’t been getting along. What can you do to turn the relationship around? Is it possible to start anew?

How To Make Your Stress Work In Your Favour

How To Make Your Stress Work In Your Favour | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Sometimes, stress can seem like a full-time job. Many of us try to avoid it or, failing that, manage or mitigate it. But, Kelly McGonigal, a lecturer at Stanford University and author of The Upside of Stress, makes the case for embracing the stress in your life.


"We have this story about stress that says when stress is present, there’s something wrong with me or something wrong with my life," she says. But the reality is that there’s no stress-free version of your life available to you—it’s always going to be there.


Often, the reason we have stress in our lives is because we’re leading rich lives and something we care about is at stake, she says. Constantly avoiding or reducing stress could mean not striving for certain goals or taking risks that could lead to great rewards, such as a new job or relationship.


Instead, McGonigal advocates changing our attitudes about stress and embracing it. That’s easier said than done, but following several steps can help.

Some great suggestions to thriving in a world of uncertainty and where it's very easy to feel overhwelmed

My associate Director keeps saying that stress is good, at first I wondered how this could be, but then on thinking deeply, I wondered if there was some truth in his statement. The article stresses how stress is good, and that it is the offshoot of a rich life. Also, stress is the welcome feeling that makes you connect and share, and stress can in some ways be the tonic that does wonders. However this can be done only if we are able to tune in to our stress and try to eliminate the irritants and obstacles that aggravate a feeling of frustration. Also stress is a catalyst for building relationships in life. Stress teaches us to take the good with the bad, to tune in to feelings of anger, frustration, and fatige and learn to balance these with a feeling of elation. Stress makes us more practical in a sense that we know quite well that it is OK to experience failure some times.

Something totally unrelated to ecommerce but is essential that we know how to manage.
