Study: Mindfulness Training Produces Less-Stressed Marines | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Marines who took a course in the basics of mindfulness recovered from stress faster following an intense training session that replicated battlefields.
Sharrock's insight:

information: "Mindfulness, which is adapted from teachings of Zen Buddhism, is the ability to be fully aware of one’s moment-to-momentthoughts and feelings, while observing them from a place of detachment. Numerous studies in recent years suggest this ability produces mental and physical benefits for many people, including veterans and others suffering from PTSD."

Why You Hate Work

Why You Hate Work | School Leadership, Leadership, in General, Tools and Resources, Advice and humor | Scoop.it
Excessive demands are leading to burnout everywhere.
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "A 2012 global work force study of 32,000 employees by the consulting company Towers Watson found that the traditional definition of engagement — the willingness of employees to voluntarily expend extra effort — is no longer sufficient to fuel the highest levels of performance. Willing, it turns out, does not guarantee able. Companies in the Towers Watson study with high engagement scores measured in the traditional way had an operating margin of 14 percent. By contrast, companies with the highest number of “sustainably engaged” employees had an operating margin of 27 percent, nearly three times those with the lowest traditional engagement scores."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 11, 11:59 AM

Not only do we hate work, we hate the commute to and from our work. I told colleagues I would teach for 1/2 the price. That was the wrong thing to say to other teachers. Apparently, even limited altruism is not welcome. When we work for money, it is inevitable that we will become unhappy. When we work for the love of what we do, we find ways to overcome the obstacles.
