Career Coach: Reverse mentoring can help the technology challenged | personnel psychology | Scoop.it
A third of people — young and old alike — have felt overwhelmed by technology, a new study finds.

 

If you’re like many individuals today, you may be feeling at least a little overwhelmed by the technology confronting you. Or maybe even more than just a little overwhelmed — you’re ready to scream!

Maybe you just decided to buy a new camera and thought it would be fun . . . until you saw all the overwhelming product offerings. That once easy (and fun) shopping expedition has become a stressful activity. Now you’re thinking, “Do I need to find a tech-savvy person to help me? How did I get so far behind?”

HR Magazine - Can people management skills be taught?

HR Magazine - Can people management skills be taught? | personnel psychology | Scoop.it

Many of you reading this will have been taught how to become a better leader or manager. Coaching of individuals in this way is commonplace, yet coaching senior teams to become more effective is less so. This is a paradox, since organisations are facing increasingly numerous and complicated challenges which require answers well beyond the power and capability of any one individual to provide. The need to harness the power of effective teamwork to drive business performance has therefore never been greater.

Friendly Workplace Linked to Longer Life

Friendly Workplace Linked to Longer Life | personnel psychology | Scoop.it

Getting along with your colleagues at work may do more than boost your productivity. It may also be a boon to your health.

 

Researchers at Tel Aviv University found that people who felt that they had the support of their colleagues and generally positive social interactions at work were less likely to die over a 20-year period than those who reported a less friendly work environment. Over all, people who believed they had little or no emotional support in the workplace were 2.4 times as likely to die during the course of the study compared with the workers who developed stronger bonds with their peers in other cubicles.

Who or what are Digital Natives?

All the way back in 2001 (that was 10 years ago) Marc Prensky wrote an article “Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants” and coined the phrase. He is referring to the students who have grown up speaking the digital language of computers, video games and the internet. Prensky says that because of their involvement and interaction with technology, they “think and process information fundamentally differently than their predecessors”.
