How Productive Failure Leads to Better Learning 

How Productive Failure Leads to Better Learning  | Transformations in Business & Tourism | Scoop.it
Building something from nothing and sharing it with the world, in whatever your medium may be, requires a lot of bravery. I’ve chronicled both my own idea prison and some of my attempts to free myself before. But lately I’ve noticed the “prison of your own ideas” sneaking up on me in a new way: That apprehension about whether or not our work is any good can stop us from learning new skills that can challenge us and help us grow as people.

Iterations to success ... If we get it right the first time, then we've learned nothing. As Thomas Edison said concerning his 10,000 "failures" prior to finding a working filament for his lightbulb, "I haven't failed, I just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

“I haven't failed, I've found 10,000 ways that don't work”

9 ways for leaders to be better at communication

donhornsby's curator insight, January 14, 8:56 AM

A nice summary of the efforts that leaders can use to improve their communication with their team.

 

(From the article): Integrity builds trust


Make sure your deeds match your words. If you say you are open to listening, you need to make sure you don’t punish the other person for speaking, suggesting or criticising. If you say you are open to their contributions and ideas, you need to follow through and not end up systematically rejecting them all. If you say you are making the other person responsible for the next step, recognise that stepping in or taking back control will undermine both them and you. If you say you will follow up with an action, failing to do so makes you look untrustworthy.

 

No amount of great dialogue can overcome the damage done by lack of integrity – indeed, failure to follow through or match deeds to your words makes it orders of magnitude harder to communicate effectively later. Where trust is low, aim for smaller, quicker wins to show that you will follow through.

Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, January 15, 4:12 AM

Google tries to understand us before we even ask. It’ll morph or results based on our location, device we’re using, previous behavior, and more. It’s truly an engine of matching intent vs. matching keywords these days.

 

And, of course, that’s changed how SEOs work.
