Karen Dietz's curator insight, December 27, 2012 2:57 PM

Business can be complex. Leadership can be complex. Certainly our culture and society is complex.


This article gets us thinking -- and includes some fabulous advice -- about how storytelling can help us wade through complex issues, make better decisions, and find a path forward.


Today. Right now. As 2013 approaches, let's continue to use stories well, to help grow and excel, instead of to diminish others.


There are wise and uplifting words in this piece and steps to take. Let's go this route. Happy New Year everyone.

The Evolution Of The Employee

The Evolution Of The Employee | DPG Online | Scoop.it

This concept and the visual was taken from my new book which came out today called, The Future of Work: Attract New Talent, Build Better Leaders, and Create a Competitive Organization.

 

One of the things I have been writing about and have tried to make clear over the past few months is that work as we know it is dead and that the only way forward is to challenge convention around how we work, how we lead, and how we build our companies. Employees which were once thought of expendable cogs are the most valuable asset that any organization has. However, the employee from a decade ago isn’t the same as the employee who we are starting to see today. To help show that I wanted to share an image from my upcoming book which depicts how employees are evolving. It’s an easy way to see the past vs the future.

Tom Hood's curator insight, September 6, 8:27 AM

Nice graphic that captures the essence of how work and the employee is changing / needing to change. It is very close to an exercise we did with our team as we prepared for our move and our "workplace" consultants (Avance') had our entire team map how work was, how it is now, and where they see it going... Here are some of the key areas:

 

From individual work to group work

From hierarchy to flat structure

From Independent group to interdependent group

From internally focused to external (customer/member and brand)

From planned connections to spontaneous connections

From single work point to multiple workpoints

From structured to fluid

 

This also reinforces our approach to what we are calling the "shift change" and how the interplay of technology, workplace, leadership, learning, and culture are all in need of intentional thoughtful planning to get the most out of the new world we are facing...

Change or Die

Change or Die | DPG Online | Scoop.it
All leadership comes down to this: changing people's behavior. Why is that so damn hard? Science offers some surprising new answers -- and ways to do...
DPG plc's insight:

Fascinating to read that even in life and death situations people won't change habits or behaviour to prolong their lives. We talk about change in many different guises and sometimes like it's easy. It is not EASY however change is possible with the right support. Some real food for thought here in terms of the change we instigate, lead, influence and commit to in our own roles and organisations.

Randy Ta's curator insight, May 14, 6:37 PM

Choosing the visual article type of infograph, it is able to show plenty of things, such as traits of a highly effective mindset, or other types of data; however a downside of this type of info graph, the information on it needs to be somewhat relevant to the topic, and the info should be varied, and should at least interesting to the reader.

 

The strengths of this visual article type of infograph is that the color is nice and consistent, there are also little designs that correspond to the traits.

 

The weaknesses of this visual article is that is the layout design of it. It may benefit if it were numbered. Even though the design was good, it can be highly improved to include a different type of visual representation other than the little designs on it.

Why educating the educators is complex

Why educating the educators is complex | DPG Online | Scoop.it
Teaching is both craft and profession -- and more.

 

Thus teaching is a deeply social and emotional activity. You have to know your students and be able to read them quickly, and from that reading make decisions to slow down or speed up, stay with a point or return to it later, connect one student’s comment to another’s.

 

Simultaneously, you are assessing on the fly Susie’s silence, Pedro’s slump, Janelle’s uncharacteristic aggressiveness. Students are, to varying degrees, also learning from each other, learning all kinds of things, from how to carry oneself to how to multiply mixed numbers.

 

How teachers draw on this dynamic interaction varies depending on their personal style, the way they organize their rooms, and so on—but it is an ever-present part of the work they do.

 


Via Gust MEES
DPG plc's insight:

In our expereince those who educate others and facilitate learning are great at using different tools however they must be taken on a journey that creates both confidence in using the tools and answers the WIIFM. The demands and needs of our students are changing and we need to ensure we keep up with these demands and in fact be early adopters and not laggards when it comes to change.

Wort looking at the four pillars of F-L-I-P

 

Flexible Environment:

 F.1: I establish spaces and time frames that permit students to interact and reflect on their learning as needed.  F.2: I continually observe and monitor students to make adjustments as appropriate. F.3: I provide students with different ways to learn content and demonstrate mastery.

Learning Culture:

 L.1: I give students opportunities to engage in meaningful activities without the teacher being central.  L.2: I scaffold these activities and make them accessible to all students through differentiation and feedback.

Intentional Content:

 I.1: I prioritize concepts used in direct instruction for learners to access on their own.  I.2: I create and/or curate relevant content (typically videos) for my students.  I.3: I differentiate to make content accessible and relevant to all students.

Professional Educator:

 P.1: I make myself available to all students for individual, small-group and class feedback, in real time, as needed.  P.2: I conduct ongoing formative assessments during class time through observation and by recording data to inform future instruction. P.3: I collaborate and reflect with other educators and take responsibility for transforming my practice.

13 Implications for Educational institutions at the primary, secondary, and post-secondary levels, are largely the products of technology infrastructure and social circumstances of the past.

The landscape has changed and educational institutions should consider how to adapt quickly in response. Some directions of change might include:

»Placing additional emphasis on developing skills such as critical thinking, insight, and analysis capabilities

»Integrating new-media literacy into education programs

»Including experiential learning that gives prominence to soft skills—such as the ability to collaborate, work in groups, read social cues, and respond adaptively

»Broadening the learning constituency beyond teens and young adults through to adulthood

»Integrating interdisciplinary training that allows students todevelop skills and knowledge in a range of subjects
