The World's Most inspirational People

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, November 30, 2015 11:31 PM

We all know what it feels like to have a “lightbulb” moment – that lightning-quick strike of momentary inspiration that plants the seed of genius and sends us racing to the whiteboard. But the feeling of sustained inspiration – a lifelong link to a particular point of reference that moors us, guides us, reminds us of what we might aspire to and what we can achieve – is something much deeper, and much greater.


As it turns out, inspiration has many faces. It spans many centuries. It covers all walks of life, and lives big and small.

Use Storytelling to Explain Your Company’s Purpose | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

While purpose is essential to a strong corporate culture, it is often activated and reinforced through narrative. Individuals must learn to connect their drives to the organization’s purpose and to articulate their story to others.

A great story of self has to be a real story of self. Finding that story may require a leader to reflect deeply on her past and motivations, and communicate them honestly — even those parts that are embarrassing or imperfect.

If you have access to LinkedIn, I highly encourage you to read Yvonne Kucher's essay about how to proofread your technical writing. I've met Yvonne at STC Summits, and she is a sharp-thinker. Yvonne offers fantastic guidelines on how to sharpen your proofreading skills, something that I think we all can learn to do better. What do you think? Do you have anything to add to Yvonne's recommendations? Include your suggestions below. --TechCommGeekMom

In their book the Future of the Professions, Richard and Daniel Susskind identify what they say are common biases that inhibit professionals from thinking freely about the future. Apart from the strong “status quo bias” there is “irrational rejectionism”, the dogmatic dismissal of a system with which the sceptic has no direct experience or because their own profession is unique.

How to Create Content That Converts Like Crazy

How to Create Content That Converts Like Crazy | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

You’ve been working hard to produce great content for your audience….


You’re getting your name out there on social media and traffic to your website is growing steadily.


But no one is buying your stuff.
Content is pointless if you’re not converting leads and sales. If you can’t do this, all the traffic in the world won’t help you.
If you want to create content that converts like crazy, you need to use a little marketing psychology.


Know the mind of your audience, truly engage them with your content, and they’ll be eager to click that button.

Why the Leadership Industry Has Failed

Why the Leadership Industry Has Failed | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it

Corporate training in the U.S. is a $70 billion market, and 35% of that is spent on management and leadership training. Over the last several decades, the industry has produced a recipe for how to be a successful corporate leader: Be trustworthy and authentic, serve others (particularly those who work for and with you), be modest, and exhibit empathetic understanding and emotional intelligence.

Steve Bax's curator insight, November 27, 2015 4:56 AM

Very stimulating article here. 

 

My take-aways are:

"It’s far more important for leaders to understand what a particular situation requires and to act in an appropriate way, says Pfeffer. “Leaders need to be true to what the situation demands and what the people around them want and need,”

In the end, says Pfeffer, we would all be better off accepting that our leaders are generally not truthful, authentic, modest, or trustworthy, largely the opposite of the message we get from the popular motivational leadership stories we hear. “All those stories and the inspiration we get from them change nothing,” he says. “The fundamental problem with this industry is the disconnect between what we say we want from our leaders and how they actually manage organizations.”

Jeffrey Pfeffer is the Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. His new book, Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time, was published by Harper Business. Has to be worth a read!

 

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, November 29, 2015 9:47 AM

Interesting point of view.  What do you think. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 2, 12:10 PM

We confuse management with leadership. Both are important, but they are different. We cannot summarize leadership into a recipe of 7 habits, 3 phases, 5 outcomes, etc. It is too non-linear and complex.

Report: Ours to Master - how makerspaces can help us master technology for a more human end - RSA | Mobile Learning | Scoop.it
The central argument of this report is that makerspaces can help people to master technology for a more human end. In practice, this means enabling people to use and understand tools for three purposes: self-fulfilment, learning and enterprise. Making may indeed be a natural human impulse, we argue, but it is also instrumental in achieving wider life goals – a means as well as an end.

Live Rich

Live Rich– A spoken word film about the true meaning of wealth.

 

‘Live Rich’ is a film about our relationship with money in a world where we are always being sold to, and how the most important things in life can’t be bought.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, November 27, 2015 5:44 AM

Live Rich is written, performed and directed by Gary Turk. I highly recommend that you check out his website www.garyturk.com. You can also follow Gary on Twitter here: @Gary_Turk


Live Rich (Transcript)

How we spend our days is how we spend our lives,
and we all spend it spending.
We live to consume, we consume to live,
and our desire for more is unending.


Whenever I get paid, I just can’t wait to spend it,
it disappears so quickly and I’m left to mend it,
I pretend it will all be okay,
to give a week’s wages away in one day.


But we try our best, still money seems to go,
we’ve been told many times that money doesn’t grow on trees,
But it’s a disease, the elephant in the room,
it’s the big bad wolf that’s making us consume.


They get more money, if we’re regular buyers,
so they manipulate are needs, and twist our desires.
They are liars, a shady institution,
where they create a problem and sell us a solution.


They will use fear, so we buy things we don’t need,
say you’re dying, you’re ugly, it’s all out of greed.
They mislead, make you buy things that wont last,
planned obsolescence should be a thing of the past.


They’ll do anything to trick us, try and take our money captive.
Sell us happiness and sex appeal, and ways to be attractive,
so we go out and buy it, and fill our lives with clutter
only we still feel the same, but with money in the gutter.


It’s a cycle, of perpetual spending,
a disposable culture with no sign of ending.
We’re pretending like they’re our own choices
and ignoring the fact that we can hear voices in our heads.
It’s Consumerism, banging at our door.

Saying our lives should be better, that we should have more.


But we’re just as bad, we shouldn’t pass blame,
we’re all part of the same money game,
But they’re winning, and we always lose,
we’re giving them our money because we join the queues
of people, all keeping up with the Joneses,
buying the latest and the newest, but what no one shows is
it’s difficult to make ends meet,
when all these temptations are thrown at our feet.


But I have a solution, which you’re welcome to ditch,
it’s hard but it’s worth it, Spend Less – Live Rich.


As simple as that, just tune out the noise,
Take in what you have and appreciate the joys
of living, without being told what to buy,
or else you’ll always want more, until the day that you die.


It’s a struggle, living day to day,
trying to stay afloat when your worries weigh you down.
You’re in your overdraft, you have been for years,
Everything you owe is being paid in arrears.


And it’s tough, you don’t know what to do,
you cant control your money when money controls you.
You need help, but you have too much pride,
you’ve used up all your credit and your cards have been denied.


You could get a loan, but that’s not the way to wealth,
when you borrow money, you rob your future self.
Ask for help, think ahead, no one wants this stress,
you may need money now but later you’ll have less.


What you earn doesn’t matter, only what you save,
you can spend what you have, but don’t be a slave
to the system, they will find a new way,
to numb the pain that you feel when it comes time to pay.


We had cash and cheque, then onto chip and pin,
now you keep hold of your card when you buy anything.
You don’t feel it, when your funds go in a flash,
just try and go a week where you only pay cash.
Then you will notice, as your stash runs low,
the wage you work hard for, how you just let it go.


Think of those in the world without shirts on their back,
when you see clothes in your closet that are still in their pack.
Realise you have what you need, when your money runs low,
And the voices on the TV start telling you to throw,
Things away, to buy the new version.
They only want your cash; they don’t care about the person.


So take control of your money, and take control of your lives,
saving money isn’t boring when you start to realise
what it stands for, the choices and the freedom,
the security of those pennies in the times that you need them.


You see true wealth isn’t in the numbers to you name,
It’s in knowledge itself, and the experiences you gain,
It’s about the priceless, and the things you cant buy,
Like memories, and loved ones, and feeling that high
When you realise, that life’s full of free gifts,
When you live in the moment, and forget that money exists.
