Good Leaders Learn What Not to Do | Leading From the Library

Good Leaders Learn What Not to Do | Leading From the Library | ProfessionalDevelopment PerfectionnementProfessionnel | Scoop.it

Leadership literature, blogs, and seminars typically focus on telling leaders the right things to do if they want to succeed. That makes sense for most of us. We want seasoned professionals to help us learn from their mistakes and accumulated wisdom. By sharing the most valued aspects of what great leaders do to inspire others, leaders at any level can learn to improve their skills. Those of us seeking advice expect it framed in a positive way. However, there may be other ways to learn leadership—primarily by better understanding how we fail as leaders and how to correct our actions. Skill areas such as athletics, craftsmanship, or the creative arts require educators or coaches to constantly point out what their students are doing wrong and what correction is required. Even a minor flaw in form or technique can lead to overall failure, so understanding what not to do can be  just as important as knowing the right approach.

The complete guide to Twitter’s language and acronyms

The complete guide to Twitter’s language and acronyms | ProfessionalDevelopment PerfectionnementProfessionnel | Scoop.it

The beauty and challenge of Twitter is stuffing your most sophisticated thoughts and feelings into a measly 140 characters (or less). Unfortunately, our traditional methods of communication have proven to be a poor training ground for micro-messaging, and even the most savvy platform users have sighed in exasperation as those bright red negative character signs mock our basic intelligence. But, perhaps even worse, no good tweet is ever going to be 140 characters because it’s impossible to share, respond or reference a tweet that’s already at it’s max. If you want to make a big statement with a small message, you have to trim the fat.Thankfully, a special subset of finite abbreviations and techniques have cropped up to help optimize your own Twitter lingo.
