3 Things the Most Productive Teams Never Do

3 Things the Most Productive Teams Never Do | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

1. Stop Compromising on Quality

 

The level of quality you're working towards must be decided at the start of a project, not when staring down a deadline.

 

Each product has a different level of optimal quality. For example, if you're working on a mobile game, your attitude towards data integrity--one aspect of quality--will be far different than if you're working on a finance or healthcare application.

 

You must have this conversation up front and agree on what you'll measure and why. This is not just for the technical team, the business must agree as well.

Essential presentation skills for introverts

Essential presentation skills for introverts | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Those of us who try to go through life unnoticed will often panic at the thought of having to give a presentation.
 
It doesn’t matter if it’s to a small board, a book-club, or a major conference audience with hundreds of people, we simply don’t like having to get in front of a group of people and be the centre of attention.

Just being with a group is hard enough, but being put in a position to lead or instruct can send us into a panic.

Here are some useful tips for making it through your presentation smoothly.

12 Do's and Don'ts to Strengthen Your Resolve Through Language

12 Do's and Don'ts to Strengthen Your Resolve Through Language | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

If you’ve used Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) you will understand how powerfully your language can not only reveal what’s really going on inside but can be the catalyst to strengthen your resolve.   If you’ve ever listened to a friend or colleague who appears powerless in a given situation, it’s because their inner language is giving away their own power, and they actually feel powerless.

Changing the habits of habit 

Changing the habits of habit  | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

When I get up each morning I silence the alarm, get out of bed, do my ablutions and eat breakfast. And I have consciously thought about none of these actions, they are all habit.

We need habit; it’s our brain’s way of conserving energy and effort. Can you imagine having to plan getting yourself and others ready each day anew? By the time we got to work it would be exhausting.

Our challenge lies in how our brains form and maintain habit. They don’t differentiate between habits that help and habits that hinder. Whatever we repeatedly do, and find rewarding in some way, will in time, turn into habit.

How to get the best value from apprenticeships

How to get the best value from apprenticeships | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Employers increasingly view apprenticeships as a rich source of future talent; securing the right candidate gives an organisation young learners who they can nurture into keen and loyal staff, eager to learn new skills from day one.
 
In fact, the value of an apprentice’s lifetime contribution to a company has been placed at £105,000 by researchers at Sheffield University, not only due to their cost savings but also their ability to increase productivity.

What is a PLN? Why do I need one?

What is a PLN? Why do I need one? | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
In the education world, PLN stands for Personal Learning Network. What it means is that an individual has developed their own personalized “network” of fellow educators and resources who are designed to make them a better teacher. This network exists both in their real-life relationships and online through their social media connections.

With more and more opportunities to develop one’s skills beyond what traditional routes have provided, establishing your own PLN is an essential step toward deepening your abilities as an educator. In the past, teachers were able to get connected to teaching resources through master’s courses, education journals, conferences, professional development, and other similar activities. Each of these were and still are excellent ways to broaden your knowledge and skills in education. However, because each of these requires your physical presence and procurement of physical materials, they also come with certain restrictions.

9 Questions Emotionally Intelligent People Always Ask

9 Questions Emotionally Intelligent People Always Ask | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Emotional Intelligence (EI or EQ) has been a hot Inc. topic written by many of my colleagues. I've also registered my thoughts on the power of EQ in leadership, or how to respond with emotional intelligence to people who push your buttons.

 

But ask any scholar and they'll tell you the study of EQ has not had a smooth history. It has been debated since the mid-1990s over its effectiveness as an evidence-based leadership model,  or as a predictor of job success.

 

Sure, I agree that in many professions -- some higher-level teaching, medicine, accounting, engineering, and other highly-technical professions -- IQ still remains the best predictor of job success.

9 Questions You Need To Ask

Daniel Goleman, the foremost authority on emotional intelligence, has put together these questions to help you evaluate your own emotional intelligence, and get you thinking about your strengths and limitations in EQ.

 

Are you usually aware of your feelings and why you feel that way?

Working With Employees To Set SMART Goals

Working With Employees To Set SMART Goals | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
People who are in management know the value of setting goals. They are an important part of motivating employees. It is also an important part of establishing a work environment where employees can succeed. Many managers utilize the 10/90 rule when it comes to SMART goal setting. This rule states the initial 10 percent of time they spend making certain employees understand what has to be done will save them 90 percent of additional time once the pursuit of goals begins. It is believed this can help managers avoid 90 percent of the possible costs, mistakes and unproductive time that can occur.

donhornsby's curator insight, June 8, 10:32 AM
(From the article): This fundamental truth is easy to grasp in theory and hard to use in practice, every day. It takes a substantial deprogramming to realize that life is all grey, that all reality lies on a continuum. This is why quantitative and scale-based thinking is so important. But most don’t realize that quantitative thinking isn’t really about math; it’s about the idea that The dose makes the poison. The dose/poison idea is the opposite of the slippery slope argument favored by the ideologue. It starts with this, and then the whole thing goes to hell. Well, maybe, but not necessarily and not usually. Nearly all things are OK in some dose but not OK in another dose. That is the way of the world, and why almost everything connected to practical reality must be quantified, at least roughly. This isn’t to say that some things shouldn’t be stamped on hard, and fast. Doing heroin even once is probably a bad idea. But make sure to use the right mental model for the right situation. We can re-frame our slogans above: War is awful but history show it to be occasionally necessary, and a very complex phenomenon. Capitalism is enormously productive but has many limitations. Some socialist institutions actually work well in a capitalist economy, but pure socialism hasn’t tended to work at all. College has its pluses and minuses; it works for some and not for others. Support for soldiers may carry some conditions. And so on.
