My Giant colleague Al Gonzalez posted the initila decision tree ... and then another Giant collague Hoda Maalouf came up with a simple but powerful change!

 

Leadership comes from within and, if it isn't happening, check out how you might need to change yourself! A great way to do that is to reflect ...and ask for feedback from those you trust and respect!

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, July 22, 2013 10:03 PM

Thanks John!  I love this versoin!

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, August 29, 2013 8:30 AM

One small rectification suggestion: if the answer is "No" to the question "Do you want to be happy?" I would leave him/her alone... he/she is not ready, let him/her experience more what "not to be happy" really means and he/she might come back to you to say "Yes"...:-)))) The key principle in the coaching based on the solution- focused approach:  "Be part of the client's world, never "know it better"...:-)))

Friend or foe? Social media for learning

Friend or foe? Social media for learning | Positive futures | Scoop.it

Social media has taken a bit of a hammering in recent weeks. The controversy surrounding Ask.fm and their sites safety may well have put learning providers off officially sanctioning social media as a communication channel for their learners. The headaches over safeguarding, time wasting, privacy and control may be just too much to address for colleges and many actually see social media as a threat to heavily-invested-in virtual learning environments (VLEs).

 

But, my fear is that by adopting these attitudes, providers may be missing a trick.

awesome teaching and learning tool!

Melanie Faizer's curator insight, March 10, 9:57 PM

Zeega.com is a great example of storytelling through aggregating and curating, and in addition, embedded, automated attribution. It removes much of the burden of copyright. From a storytelling perspective, it has limitless possibilities, but one of the challenges is finding that story worth telling. Some Zeega examples are beautifully executed; too many are (from a journalistic perspective) one-dimensional in their execution and not thought-provoking. We are still new at curating content, and it shows. Curating is another form of narrating: the story still needs a point, a trajectory.

The Yoga Sweat: How Our Glands Process Emotion

The Yoga Sweat: How Our Glands Process Emotion | Positive futures | Scoop.it

Did you know that you really can smell fear? I once presented a paper at a conference in front of the very writer I was discussing in my paper. He also happens to be one of my literary idols. I walked out after the talk sure that my armpit stains were of a different quality (and perhaps even color) than anything triggered by the Edmonton summer heat. This sweat was greasier and more aggressive: I stank of sheer, unadulterated terror.

That's an important one... the statistics are showing that we - in the whole world, not only in the States - take care how this change of pouvoir will take place...

 

I have one small reframing idea: these type of articles are speaking about the gap between the generations like something unbridgable  thing... it looks like that when the boomers and the Xs are arriving in the office, they find there the Martian, or aliens (the Y generations...)  who are very misterious, wants completely othere things than us, whose motivation is quite different from that of the earlier generation... welll, guys, these are not the Martian these are your sons and girls from home.... yes, if as parents you will not make a great effort to understand and motivate them at home, if they are already Martians there (you know, those little (or rather big) green people), than yes, you meet the same Martian folks in the office and in the factory and you have got a problem... but if you do your homework at home, you are good, understanding, supporting parents, then, hopefully you will not forget what you learned about them at home until you arrive at work... hopefully... from this angle this whole thing looks like a little bit less dramatic...  not speaking about that tiny detail how different were we from our parents, and yes, they did not want to understand us, the boomers, the that-time "Y-generation"... and, of course, we promised to ourselves that we on our turn as parents will be not such an as..holes... Well, guys....-)))
