Health Benefits of Drinking Kombucha Tea

Health Benefits of Drinking Kombucha Tea | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it
The reported health benefits of drinking kombucha tea are plentiful, from clearing up stomach problems to alleviating arthritis pain.
Paula King, Ph.D.'s insight:

In article like this purporting many benefits, I wish the dosage or amounts per day would be given.  To find out, I have to go to the original research, which isn't bad, but I trust Mother Jones and would like the articles to be more complete.

Greg Alchin's curator insight, February 16, 8:56 PM

For Blended learning to be successful educators need to really unpack the principles of TPACK and SAMR. It is the considered use of the tech for education purposes not the tech itself that is the driver.

Culture of Purpose: Why Most Leaders Get It Wrong And 3 Ways To Get It Right

Culture of Purpose: Why Most Leaders Get It Wrong And 3 Ways To Get It Right | The Future of Higher Education- Human Beings CAN create the future if we pay attention | Scoop.it
Old school leaders limit their language to profit, quotas and market share. While these quantitative metrics are critical, they don’t ignite emotional engagement. They’re internally focused on what the company wants to accomplish. Leaders can foster a greater sense of purpose by amplifying the impact they have on customers.

People want to make money. But they also want to make a difference. Creating a culture of purpose is how you do both.T
Paula King, Ph.D.'s insight:

Leading with purpose means dropping many of the corporate shoulds that are old school.  Today, we want know that our precious time and energy is going towards something that enhances the lives of others and society and creates something of sustainable value.  

 

It isn't easy to let go to those old truisms.In this article the authors talks about getting emotional---showing you care.  This runs counter to the "never let them see you sweat"  mantra of the end of the last millenium.  

 

How and why have things changed dramatically.  Frankly, I don't know.  I just know they have.  

 

 Millennials want meaning in their lives and some/many reject the success = money paradigm.  

 

Meaningful experiences is where its at.  Not a house in the burbs, an inflated job title, nor the so-called trappings of success. "Things" are not as important.  

 

Meaning.  Hmmmm.  First we have to find it /have it ourselves before we can incorporate it in our leadership practice.
