There’s a considerable gap between what we can be doing, and what we are doing.  When you look at what’s out there, we see that there are several way in which we fall short of the mark.  While there are many dimensions that could be considered, for the sake of simplicity let’s characterize the two important ones as effectiveness of our learning and the engagement of the experience.

When Hope Becomes Your Best Leadership Strategy

When Hope Becomes Your Best Leadership Strategy | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

Given the current state of work, I believe there are few things more important for a leader than to inspire hopefulness in those around them. And while in organizations, hope without a good business strategy is most certainly a recipe for disaster, I believe the converse is equally as true. Kathy Caprino references a compelling interview on hope with Libby Gill, the former head of communications/PR for Sony, Universal, and Turner Broadcasting in her article, If You can’t Instill Hope, You’ll Fail Miserably As A Leader. Gill, who grew up in a family challenged by divorce, mental illness, and suicide, is quoted saying, “hope has always been more than just an abstract concept to me.” She goes on to say, “If you are providing strategies to people who are feeling hopeless, it’s like giving someone a power tool without electricity. Utterly useless.”

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff | Learning Organizations | Scoop.it

In a fixed mindset students believe their basic abilities, their intelligence, their talents, are just fixed traits. They have a certain amount and that’s that, and then their goal becomes to look smart all the time and never look dumb. In a growth mindset students understand that their talents and abilities can be developed through effort, good teaching and persistence. They don’t necessarily think everyone’s the same or anyone can be Einstein, but they believe everyone can get smarter if they work at it (Morehead 2012).
