15 Reasons Why Daydreamers are Better Learners

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

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."

Why Our Complex World Needs Connective Leadership

Why Our Complex World Needs Connective Leadership | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

“Diversity trumps ability” as a sufficiently diverse, large group of non-experts often outperforms a small group of experts,” found Future Perfect authorSteven Johnson. In our increasingly complex, disruptive world, we will face more situations where we’ll benefit from calling on the so-called wisdom of the crowd.

This is Connected Educators month. We talk more and more about collaboration and working well together. While I'm not convinced the crowd is always the wisest, I think it's likely we'll hear more creative ideas from the crowd than if we work exclusive of the so-called non-experts.

Linda Alexander's curator insight, October 21, 2:33 PM

"Diversity trumps ability" is a clear message to all classroom teachers, institutions & business innovation organizers.  

John Thurlbeck, FCMI FRSA's curator insight, October 22, 4:28 AM

Loved this article scooped by John Lasschuit! What intrigued me was the diagram plotting the relationships. As a Mind Map devotee, it was always going to lure me in! What was even more interesting was the notion of connective leadership. Great leaders are communicators; they work with and through people and they build relationships that, in turn, develop further relationships. If they don't, they are not great leaders!

The Best Leaders Are Insatiable Learners

The Best Leaders Are Insatiable Learners | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Nearly a quarter century ago, at a gathering in Phoenix, Arizona, John W. Gardner delivered a speech that may be one of the most quietly influential speeches in the history of American business — a text that has been photocopied, passed along, underlined, and linked to by senior executives in some of the most important companies and organizations in the world. I wonder, though, how many of these leaders (and the business world more broadly) have truly embraced the lessons he shared that day.

It’s personal: when employee’s silence can justify dismissal

An employer has the right to demand information about an employee’s personal life when there is a chance it may give rise to a potential conflict with the employer’s interests. But a recent Fair Work Commission ruling has taken it a step further, suggesting an employee is obliged to disclose her partner’s relationship with a competitor to the employer.

Yes, Flexible Hours Ease Stress. But Is Everyone on Board?

Yes, Flexible Hours Ease Stress. But Is Everyone on Board? | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
A study shows that working from home can make you happier. Face time at the office, however, has value, too.
Trumans's insight:

Everyone with a job knows how stressful it can be when personal priorities clash with work schedules. The conflict could involve a continuing medical concern, taking care of children or aging parents, or getting enough exercise or running errands. A too-strict schedule combined with too many demands can cause workers to feel that they have let down their companies, their families and themselves.

While writing this post, I had 18 tabs open. I’d like to say they were all for research, although I’m pretty sure one or two slipped down a YouTube wormhole.


Does this sound familiar?


It seems like my multi-tab madness is right in line with the status quo. We all love to have multiple tabs open at once, adding more and more as we find new articles to click and sites to visit. Pretty soon, it’s likely we’ve forgotten what we were online for in the first place.

4 Gestures That Turn People Off

4 Gestures That Turn People Off | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

When you deliver a presentation, your body language is important for one over-riding reason: it creates an instant visual first impression that answers a big question for your audience: "Can I trust this person?"


Until now, science has not been able to isolate the specific physical cues that could cause us to not be trusted. But thanks to Dr. David DeSteno, a professor of psychology at Northeastern University, we now know what gestures can undermine the perception of our trustworthiness.


Dr. DeSteno devised a study in which participants played a cooperative economic game. Half played face-to-face, and half played over the internet. And those who played face-to-face were videotaped from three camera angles.

People are innately wired to avoid risk. During times of times of change and uncertainty, our risk aversion is amplified. Yet the number one way to gaining competitive edge is by creating a culture where people feel safe and emboldened to innovate and challenge the status quo thinking. The first key to creating a 'culture of courage' is leading from possibility, not probability.
