Not The Same Old Garden Path - How We Can Literally Think Differently - TanveerNaseer.com

Not The Same Old Garden Path - How We Can Literally Think Differently - TanveerNaseer.com | Organizational effectiveness | Scoop.it
Best-selling author William A. Donius shares what neuroscience has revealed about how we can learn to literally think differently to be more innovative.

 

The process of using the non-dominant hand, considering a question and allowing an answer to flow forth from that hand without consciously thinking about it, is in effect, walking yourself down a new garden path – a truly amazing experience.

Deborah Long's insight:

Drawing on both sides of the brain particularly the non dominant side opens one to new experiences and ways of thinking.

John Michel's curator insight, July 3, 2013 10:37 PM

As we age, neuroscientists tell us, our thoughts and patterns become more ingrained. The way our brains process, sort and ultimately respond to questions is akin to taking the same path through the garden over and over. We get to know the path very well, and it becomes familiar to us. As long as the problems we face are familiar, so are our approaches to solving these problems. We are in our intellectual “comfort zones.”

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's comment, July 11, 2013 1:20 PM
Breaking through our patterned thinking is essential to adaptive and agile learning, esp. when we don't know what we don't know." Getting out of that comfort zone is a challenge, books like this help.
Free Your Mind's curator insight, July 31, 2013 1:00 AM

Neuroplasticity has proven that we can really re-train our brains for just about everything.  Given the right amount of effort and time you really can train yourself to react differently and be happier.  It's worth trying!

If you were able to maintain a level of self-confidence that no circumstance could shake, what would you be doing differently?  Just imagine the things you would accomplish if you were confident that you COULD.

This kind of confidence comes from positive self-imaging, and it is something that you can proactively build for yourself.  It doesn’t happen while you wait passively.  When you leave it up to external factors, you build your self-confidence on sandy ground.  What you need is a rock-solid foundation, and this only comes from building it from within.

Why Femininity Will Be the Operating System of the 21st Century

Why Femininity Will Be the Operating System of the 21st Century | Organizational effectiveness | Scoop.it
The essence of a modern leader is inherently feminine; a more expressive type of leader who shares their feelings and emotions more openly and honestly. This is in direct contrast to what we find in traditional power systems today.

Via Maria Rachelle
Deborah Long's insight:

Global research of 64,000 women and men indicates a shift from leadership being viewed as traditional power & politics to more inherent feminine leadership characteristics which are more highly valued.

I'd agree with most of what this article suggests.  Nonprofit annual reports are, for the most part, staid, boring, and often filled with balderdash. How do we move to a new form of reporting that shows true impact in exciting ways?  How does your nonprofit do this?

Ken Dickens's curator insight, April 19, 2013 1:36 PM

Non-Profit reporting should be about impact. Not admin costs, not, percentages.  It should tell a story to potential donors as to the results their donations will produce.  Sounds like a business, doesn't it?  Ken
