Wisdom for the Future | Positive futures | Scoop.it

What we sow in our organizations and technologies today, we will one day reap. Life is unpredictable, and we don’t know exactly what we are now creating for our future. But there are clues to what lies ahead, clues that can be found in the foundations we are now busily building with our organizations and our technologies.

Change Management Models

Change Management Models | Positive futures | Scoop.it

Organizational development has been of focus for several years, but still many companies do not understand the importance of change management models. Almost 70% of all major organizational change efforts fail, which among others is because of a lack of holistic approach to the management of change and the extend of the models used. This emphasizes the importance for companies to have a good and realistic change management model before starting to implement the transformation.

If you believe that change is top down, this one's for you.

"Change is about changing people not organisations, organisations will transform when the management and employees change their way of doing business, which is why good change management models are central to a successful transformation of a firm." - could not agree more, yesss, it's about people...  change management is one of the leading topics...

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Positive futures | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

35 Psychology-Based Learning Strategies For Deeper Learning | Positive futures | Scoop.it

"Have you ever considered letting your students listen to hardcore punk while they take their mid-term exam? Decided to do away with Power Point presentations during your lectures? Urged your students to memorize more in order to remember more? If the answer is no, you may want to rethink your notions of psychology and its place in the learning environment. Here are 35 critical thinking strategies, straight from the mind of Sigmund Freud." | by Sara Briggs

Good strategies to incorporate when planning instruction. (some we already use!)
Audrey's curator insight, March 9, 7:10 AM

Some of these are excellent memory methods, which people learn automatically from a very young age. One way to help older learners is to try to get them back to that exciting trial and error style that they had as young children.  

 

Watch babies aged a year plus and see how they are fascinated by simple activities such as picking up a pencil and walking backwards and forwards to drop it at a certain spot, then walking around a table and carrying out the same action again and again. But watch carefully, the spot the pencil has been placed is usually near something else, sometimes a larger object.  

 

One of the things we stop doing as we get older is to enjoy repeating things from different perspectives:  that is learning with stress.  If students looked at what they were learning as something that enhanced their understanding rather than just for passing exams, learning would be memorable and more enjoyable.  You do not need a teacher to' teach' you this.  Most of the psychology-based strategies are inherent.


So parents start children as soon as they start crawling;  leave books, small toys and a variety of different toys around and watch how they learn. NOT EVERYTHING GOES INTO THEIR MOUTHS!!

What The Happiest People Know About Work

What The Happiest People Know About Work | Positive futures | Scoop.it

Study, work hard, and you will be successful.

 

This was the mantra repeated by educators throughout my youth. None of them added "be happy" to the success equation.

 

But a growing body of research in positive psychology and neuroscience is demonstrating that happiness is the secret ingredient to success. It turns out, our brains are more engaged, creative, productive, and resilient when in a positive state.

 

All this unhappiness comes with a high price tag to businesses, costing more than $550 billion a year in lost productivity. In his book, Donovan identifies 60 simple steps individuals can take to improve their happiness and get back on the path to success. Here are six of the top things happy workers do:

Obama: The role of listening in effective leadership

Obama: The role of listening in effective leadership | Positive futures | Scoop.it

President Obama is often accused by his critics of being an "appeaser." Those on the right tend to bring this up in the context of his foreign policy (to them, he's a tyrant at home) and on the left it comes up in their criticisms of how he deals with Republicans on domestic policy (to them, he's a tyrant abroad).

Its true, the President has been pretty relentless in reaching out to his opponents. But if we dig a little deeper, we find a much more interesting story about his style of leadership.

The common thread underpinning these quotes — which include such beloved luminaries as Albert CamusSimone de BeauvoirHenry JamesAnne Lamott,Søren Kierkegaard, and Leo Tolstoy himself — is Congdon’s own sensibility about what it means to live with kindness and integrity, to cherish beauty and the creative spirit, and ultimately to be a good human being.

A Very Bad Idea That Millions of People Believe

A Very Bad Idea That Millions of People Believe | Positive futures | Scoop.it

The real problem with "money buys happiness" is twofold. First, it's not true beyond a very limited point. Having enough money to be comfortable produces more happiness than living with the stress of poverty and want. Beyond this fairly modest state of financial security (not so modest if you were born into a poor country or have an impoverished background in a rich one) money brings more stress than it's worth.

The second reason that "money buys happiness" is such a bad idea is subtler. The pursuit of money prevents you from finding happiness another way.

David Hain's insight:

Deepak Chopra - Happiness is an inner pursuit, to find it most of us don't need to chase the money.
