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."

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.

How to Write a Cover Letter: 14 Best Practices for Dramatically Better Job Applications

How to Write a Cover Letter: 14 Best Practices for Dramatically Better Job Applications | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

The cover letter is one of the few documents that nearly everyone will have to write at some point in their life. It has been said that the CV is possibly the most important document you will ever write and if this is the case then arguably, the cover letter could be a close second. The good news is that whilst it might seem complex, in truth it is a just a combination of basic principles that need to be included and followed.

Karl Wabst's curator insight, March 8, 2:16 PM

Coaching employees does not mean you simply tell someone they need to change.


It is a bidirectional conversation and an ongoing process. You must ask, then listen and empathize with them so your advice gets past their defenses.


Just because you are the manager, does not mean your advice is welcome or understood.


Often, the coach must change something in his or her own behavior or viewpoint to be successful at changing someone else.


You are selling a prospect on change. Listen and be prepared to work at showing employees what is in it for them.

Trumans's insight:

As human beings we love a good story, which is why theatre, cinema and TV are so popular. So, how well can you tell the story of your business?  Maybe, it's something to brush up on.
On the other hand, whenever I've visited a new client, gone to have a look at their factory or new office, I enjoy hearing "their story" and they really enjoy telling it. Their business is precious to them , and they've had hurdles to jump to get it to where it is now. So, apart from being a good storyteller, it's important to be a good listener too!
