Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator | Creating Connections | Scoop.it

Jackie GERSTEIN: I was asked recently why I have a strong interest and innate understanding of the growth mindset. I believe it comes from a background of being an adventure educator, and even though it was not labeled as such, the adventure educator embraces a growth mindset when working with participants. The underlying tenet of adventure education is “You are capable of so much more than you can even imagine. I believe in you and your capabilities; and I will set up the conditions for you to develop and amplify that same belief in yourself.”

10 Ways to Stop Feeling Overworked and Overwhelmed

10 Ways to Stop Feeling Overworked and Overwhelmed | Creating Connections | Scoop.it
I had just read an early version of a new book and decided to do a quick survey during a speaking engagement. I asked the audience, "How many of you feel overworked and overwhelmed?"As far as I could tell, every hand was raised.No surprise there. We all feel overworked. And we all feel overwhelmed, at least some of the time. (Even if by other people's standards we seem to have it easy, to us it still feels like we're overwhelmed.)Effectively balancing our professional and personal live

This blog post was originally posted at Teach Thought and was written by ASCD published author Michael Fisher. ASCD is leading the theme Educator Professional Development & Learning during Connected Educator Month. I used to sit in workshops that were peripherally, if at all, related to my professional practice. I’d spend hours in a physical face-to-face workshop and leave with maybe one or two ideas that mattered to me. I may or may not have acted on those ideas dependent on how stressed th

How to Deal With a Difficult Co-Worker

How to Deal With a Difficult Co-Worker | Creating Connections | Scoop.it

It's all too common. Agendas conflict, personalities clash. People get hired for their great skills who turn out to have major issues. Whatever the source, when a colleague (or subordinate or boss) is driving you up the wall, it's up to you to figure out how to cope.

Exiling them to a desert island probably isn't an option, but here are six strategies that can help:

Senior Vice President at MGM Resorts Gives 3 Life-changing Ways to use Feedback

Senior Vice President at MGM Resorts Gives 3 Life-changing Ways to use Feedback | Creating Connections | Scoop.it

We learned how to give feedback. One important step this team took to improve its performance was to create a sort of social contract. They agreed to a number of behaviors they wanted to hold themselves accountable for. The team started practicing a "scoring" technique to track how well they practiced the behaviors individually, and learned how to give feedback to explain their scores for each other.

 

Teams like Litster's often include a number of common elements in their "operating agreements." Some items might include avoiding blame, looking for the root cause of a problem, communicating messages even when they're hard to say, and receiving messages without defensiveness even when they're hard to hear.

We've all encountered organizations that are going through a lot of change. I recently worked with an organization going through a transitional phase--they had a new division and even that division had gone through a major overhaul so they could be higher functioning within the whole of the company. All of that change can be hard on a team.

Why Virtual Teams Have More Conflict

Why Virtual Teams Have More Conflict | Creating Connections | Scoop.it
Meeting virtually is a necessity in today’s global economy, and doing so has plenty of advantages. Organizations can gather experts together regardless of geographic location, companies can give employees greater flexibility in where they work, and virtual technology can reduce the negative effects of hierarchy, allowing more equal participation among colleagues. But when things go wrong on virtual teams, it can get ugly fast.

Meeting virtually often complicates team dynamics.

Amanda Nadon-Langlois's curator insight, November 18, 2014 7:42 PM

This is no surprise. While virtual meetings are growing, they aren't always as effective as in-person meetings. Emails don't show the tone or meaning behind its words so they can easily be misinterpreted. Communications should be regulated whether it's face-to-face or through technology.
