Ron McIntyre's curator insight, October 29, 2014 11:08 AM

Absolutely true when it comes to business leaders.  It does not even come to the surface in terms of skills, hard or soft.

John Michel's curator insight, October 29, 2014 9:21 PM

Empathy is considered by many to be a basic human quality. So why is it often still missing in our day-to-day work?

Six Degrees

Six Degrees | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it
Possibly the most graphic treatment of global warming that has yet been published, Six Degrees is what readers of Al Gore's best-selling An Inconvenient Truth or Ross Gelbspan's Boiling Point will turn to next. Written by the acclaimed author of High Tide, this highly relevant and compelling book uses accessible journalistic prose to distill what environmental scientists portend about the consequences of human pollution for the next hundred years.

In 2001, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a landmark report projecting average global surface temperatures to rise between 1.4 degrees and 5.8 degrees Celsius (roughly 2 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit) by the end of this century. Based on this forecast, author Mark Lynas outlines what to expect from a warming world, degree by degree. At 1 degree Celsius, most coral reefs and many mountain glaciers will be lost. A 3-degree rise would spell the collapse of the Amazon rainforest, disappearance of Greenland's ice sheet, and the creation of deserts across the Midwestern United States and southern Africa. A 6-degree increase would eliminate most life on Earth, including much of humanity.

Based on authoritative scientific articles, the latest computer models, and information about past warm events in Earth history, Six Degrees promises to be an eye-opening warning that humanity will ignore at its peril.

How Successful People Cure Their Blindspots

“ Do you know what your leadership blindspots are? It’s a trick question because, by definition, blindspots are areas where you lack awareness of your weakness. Many coaches casually refer to them as “derailers.” A leader continues to advance and climb the career ladder until an unknown weakness suddenly derails her career. Robert [...]”

The Biggest "Game-Changer" in Education | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it

If you are going to pick a single “thing” that is a game-changer in education, it is the Internet. This is not just for education, but for everything. Honestly though, this is years ago and I think that many of understand the opportunities the “World Wide Web” has provided to us in so many facets of our life. That being said, that “game changer” has already happened.

Truths About the Future of Careers

Truths About the Future of Careers | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it
The future belongs to those who work with, not against, the rising tide of technology.
Stephen Lippa's insight:

1. Own your life choices, and don’t let comparison make you envious.

2. Don’t learn to code, learn how to work with technology.

3. Become a first-rate leader and collaborator.

4. Learn to market your work.


Top performers in every field are getting paid better than ever. We’ve seen the rise of digital nomads and solo entrepreneurs for those who like to go their own way. An increased emphasis on job-agnostic “soft skills” means that we can quickly switch careers to match our interests and beliefs. It’s easier than ever to tailor-make a career and lifestyle that aligns with what makes us happy.

Rework

Rework | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it

Rework shows you a better, faster, easier way to succeed in business. Read it and you'll know why plans are actually harmful, why you don't need outside investors, and why you're better off ignoring the competition. The truth is, you need less than you think. You don't need to be a workaholic. You don't need to staff up. You don't need to waste time on paperwork or meetings. You don't even need an office. Those are all just excuses. 

What you really need to do is stop talking and start working. This book shows you the way. You'll learn how to be more productive, how to get exposure without breaking the bank, and tons more counterintuitive ideas that will inspire and provoke you.

With its straightforward language and easy-is-better approach, Rework is the perfect playbook for anyone who’s ever dreamed of doing it on their own. Hardcore entrepreneurs, small-business owners, people stuck in day jobs they hate, victims of "downsizing," and artists who don’t want to starve anymore will all find valuable guidance in these pages.

Stephen Lippa's insight:

I actually found this fun and insightful. Well worth picking up.

Leading in the 21st century

Leading in the 21st century | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it

Wharton School professor Michael Useem scopes out the leadership challenges facing executives today:

 

Because the world is now more complicated and more uncertain, I think that on top of always having a great vision there will be a premium on thinking strategically and on being able to come back from setbacks, and maybe above all, on being very good at reading the increasingly ambiguous and uncertain universe we operate in.

 

Companies probably focus too much on the bottom line, too much on meeting quarterly analyst expectations, and this has cost us companies paying attention to what the country needs or what the world needs or certainly what the community requires.

The Future by Al Gore

The Future by Al Gore | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it
Stephen Lippa's insight:

Ours is a time of revolutionary change that has no precedent in history. With the same passion he brought to the challenge of climate change, and with his decades of experience on the front lines of global policy, Al Gore surveys our planet’s beclouded horizon and offers a sober, learned, and ultimately hopeful forecast in the visionary tradition of Alvin Toffler’s Future Shock and John Naisbitt’s Megatrends. In The Future, Gore identifies the emerging forces that are reshaping our world.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 8, 2014 7:55 PM

I must be visiting the wrong Schools, because there are still computer labs, isolated classrooms, banning the use of PDA's, etc. We create the beliefs that things are different than what they really are sometimes.

We evolve, but the university stands still

We evolve, but the university stands still | Thoughts on Learning and Leadership | Scoop.it
Evolution has made humans uniquely suited to collaboration and conversation, qualities discouraged in universities
Stephen Lippa's insight:

When a small group of individuals gets together and pools their talents to work on a difficult problem and comes up with a innovative solution, in university, it’s called cheating. In life, it is called collaboration and is highly valued, but in class, it’s forbidden.

 

There we have it – a brain evolved for two-way communication in a highly socialized environment in which collaboration leads to success. And we put this brain in a classroom of one-way communication in a highly de-socialized environment that celebrates cutthroat competition for grades and punishes collaboration. It’s brilliantly perverse.

Five Leadership Resolutions for 2014

5 leadership resolutions for 2014:

 

Resolve to spend 15 minutes a day listening. Refuse to make statements, just explore. After you’ve mastered 15 minutes, up it to 30. Most leaders talk too much.

 

Spend an hour every week with someone you admire. The people you hang with reflect your future.

 

Talk about the past in terms of lessons learned. Stop circling the past like a vulture eyeing a carcass. Everyone captivated by the past repeats it. The past is a tool for learning not a target for circling.

 

Reject isolation; embrace connection. The double trouble of failure is pulling into a shell. Isolation is a symptom of sickness and fear.

 

Don’t talk about it unless you plan to do something about it.
