15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners

15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Via Ana Cristina Pratas, David Hain
Trumans's insight:

Daydreamers are thinkers.  In order to stay in front of the competition one of the biggest challenges is "how?"  Thinkers may have the answer...

Belinda MJ.B's curator insight, January 9, 2013 6:58 AM

Let go of controlling your mind. Daydreaming is an attribute of successful people.

 

"Daydreaming, as a mental state activating both the default and executive networks of the brain, plays an important role in that organizing and processing. What you may think is just your mind drifting is actually your mind actively forming connections between information, synthesizing what was previously only chaos, and preparing the ground for the moment when things suddenly fit into place."

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, January 9, 2013 7:23 AM

"The daydream begins. It’s a familiar scene, one we have likely both experienced as students and struggled against in our students as teachers. But daydreaming is not what it might seem. Recent research in both psychology and neuroscience makes clear that daydreaming is an essential part of mental processing, reasoning and, yes, even learning."

Leadership styles: Only 8% of leaders are 'transformational' | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

The debate about whether these earth-shaking leaders are born or made will continue to rumble on, not least because they’re so apparently rare. Then again, it often only takes one person at the top to kickstart an organisation into action.

Ian Berry's curator insight, May 20, 8:42 PM

Transformation is an outcome of a series of transitions. We don't need transformational leaders. We need leaders willing and able to co-create the transitions and who appreciate and help people to be accountable as the transitions are executed.

Stop Beating Yourself Up for Not Getting Everything Done Every Day

Stop Beating Yourself Up for Not Getting Everything Done Every Day | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

One of the biggest challenges that we all face is the steadily increasing number of things that we have to do on a daily basis. There is nothing new about this but many people struggle with a sense of daily frustration simply because they can't get everything done and in all likelihood they never will.

At the end of the day, when you look at your to do list, and start the afternoon "I'm not good enough" session, beating yourself up because you didn't get everything done, try making a new list.

Forget the Vision, Make the Connections

Forget the Vision, Make the Connections | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

New leaders don’t spend nearly enough time and effort being intentional about how they show up and how they spend their own time. The effort they devote to forming meaningful connections with the people in the organization is almost an afterthought.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 27, 9:51 AM

(From the article): How can you be more intentional? Hall frames intentionality in her own work in eight words that guide each of her interactions: “I want it to matter that we met.” And it should matter for both her and the person she is meeting. There is an implied flexibility in the time horizon; it may matter immediately or several years down the road. Challenge yourself: “I want it to matter that I hold this position,” or “I want it to matter that I am your boss.” How does this affect how you will show up to deliver short-term results and create long-term impact?

Leadership and happiness, when do they arise together? | Hewsons | Joe Walsh

Leadership and happiness, when do they arise together? | Hewsons | Joe Walsh | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

In his TED talk titled “Want to be happy? Be grateful”, David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine monk makes the point that happiness arises when we avail ourselves of the opportunity presented by each moment in life. Even in difficult circumstances opportunity still exists and happiness is available.

Trumans's insight:

In my experience it's very important to strive to be happy in what you do as people would rather work with and be led by a happy person than an unhappy one.

2 Ways To Become Indispensable At Work

2 Ways To Become Indispensable At Work | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

If you said “no” to any of the above, you’re probably not indispensable to your employer. But you should strive to be, says Chris Gaborit, managing director and cofounder of The Learning Factor, in a recent LinkedIn post.

 

In the post, Gaborit offers keys to becoming indispensable at work.

 

“I decided to get some wisdom from people I respect,” he says. “I asked some of our best clients — senior managers who work for global companies. These people have walked the walk; they have been bulletproof when it comes to restructuring.”

 

Here are two ways to become indispensable at work:

Does your company value you? Do you think you’d survive multiple rounds of layoffs? Would your employer miss you if you were to leave?

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, April 15, 12:03 PM

The title of the post of Chris Gaborit is very suggestive "five keys to becoming an indispensable at work" frankly I think that no employee may become necessary but increase the likelihood that in times of crisis and organizational restructuring is one of the employees that the company wants to retain an employee who has also developed specific expertise of their work, the skills to be kept longer in a company that knows increase their employability. For these five tips Gaborit seem very important:

 

Hold the mindset that change provides opportunity.Do not overfocus on the next job position but rather on the skills to be developed.Building relationships with key decision makers.Exhibit the ability to get ‘stuff’ done.Treat everyone with genuine respect

Employees Want a Lot More From Their Managers

Employees Want a Lot More From Their Managers | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it


The best managers make a concerted effort to get to know their employees and help them feel comfortable talking about any subject, whether it is work related or not. A productive workplace is one in which people feel safe -- safe enough to experiment, to challenge, to share information and to support one another. In this type of workplace, team members are prepared to give the manager and their organization the benefit of the doubt. But none of this can happen if employees do not feel cared about.
