Luís Cochofel's insight:

This is a very interesting example of what I think Linked In can offer any of us who want to take advantage - by WORKING - of its tools. My friend @Clare McNamara and her partner Monica Garcia-Romero have taken the results of a poll they've ran here on LI and are now offering us all, not only a summary of what happened, but the correct demonstration of what they do, what they love doing, and how they see it. They've even gone a bit further, thanking in private, those who - like me - have participated in it.

Arie Baan's curator insight, July 23, 2013 3:24 PM

In my work with virtual teams I have found questions such as the one in the top graph of the article "Which of these is the biggest challenge you face when working in a virtual team? " to be great conversation starters.

Ask team members to think about this a pre-work and send it in. Collate the responses, and start the discussion. This works like a dream in most cases to bring out the real issues in a virtual team.

Clare McNamara's comment, August 6, 2013 5:17 AM
Thank you Arie, Luís and Daniel for your contributions to this debate. Monica and I are running a workshop on the topic at the W.I.N. Global Conference in October in Prague. We will be asking more questions and hope to gather some great insights from those currently working in virtual teams. Watch this space!

A Must Have Chart Featuring Critical Thinking Skills

A Must Have Chart Featuring Critical Thinking Skills | Mentoring & Coaching | Scoop.it

Critical thinking is an essential skill in our life.It is through thinking critically that we get to sideline our biases(cultural, racial,ethnic...etc) and see the clear picture.Critical thinking is a sort of meta-thinking, that is thinking about thinking. It is a key to self-reliance : memorize the solution to a particular problem and you may master the solution to that particular problem, but improve your critical thinking and you ll get yourself the tools to create your own effective solutions to a multitude of unfamiliar problems.

Luís Cochofel's insight:

This is clearly a discussion I'm interested in following, and eventually add some comments.

Anyway, and taking it for sure that I'm in favour of taking values and soft skills into MBA curricula, I do think that we need to start talking about this to our kids -- starting on the kindergarden --, so that those valuable principles are embedded in their characteres, if we want a real change to happen in our world.
