Marty Koenig's curator insight, January 30, 2014 10:29 PM

There have been studies on working from home since the late 1980's. I find it appalling that they continue to be fairly inconclusive with no definitive results. 


The study I did in 1993 for AT&T showed that productivity increased 25% for knowledge workers. Because people were happier they put in more work per day, over the same time frame. and tehy weren't distracted by water cooler conversations, etc. The results were the same that if one worked from home 2-4 days a week, they had 50% higher employee satisfaction. 



Marc Kneepkens's curator insight, January 31, 2014 10:33 AM

Very true. Working from home feels good, whether working for an employer or being self-employed. Less distractions, better focus, more flexibility. Consider it for your employees.

Making Time for Learning Will Make You Healthier, Richer, and More Popular

Making Time for Learning Will Make You Healthier, Richer, and More Popular | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

If you're looking for reasons to make time in your busy schedule to keep learning, there's no shortage of possibilities. First and foremost, perhaps, is that you'll be in great company. Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, and Oprah Winfrey all set aside dedicated time to learn new things each week. Look how far the practice has taken them.

But if you're looking for more scientific explanations of why the end of school shouldn't mean the end of learning, writer John Coleman is probably your man. He writes regularly for the HBR blogs on the subject of lifelong learning and its many benefits. One of his recent posts is a must read for those who suspect they should to make more time in their lives to nourish their brains, but still need a bit of a kick in the pants.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Making and finding time to learn new things, even things not related to one's profession or skill set will help make one healthier, richer, and more popular. This is very important for all professionals. Learning is a constant process, and the more you learn, the better equipped you are for life in the 21st Century. Looking at the pace with which technological advancement is taking place and the pace with which new discoveries and inventions are taking place, I feel it is important for us to be life-long learners! Health, richness and popularity will follow!

Your Brain Has A “Shuffle” Button--Here’s How To Use It

Your Brain Has A “Shuffle” Button--Here’s How To Use It | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it
In the early 1890s, everybody wanted the newest technological marvel. Democratic and affordable, the bicycle could cut people's commute to work in half and enable them to enjoy the countryside on the weekend. Thousands of bicycle mechanics appeared as if overnight, looking to make bicycles lighter, safer, more comfortable, and easier to pro­duce. They would tinker with ball bearings, rolled steel, differential gears, air-filled tires, and so on.
 
The more raw material you give your brain, the more connections it can make.

Many of these enthusiasts would later use what they’d learned in bicycle workshops to create greater transportation breakthroughs. Both of the Wright Brothers were bicycle mechanics. So was a man named Henry Ford, who watched mass production take hold at a time when cyclists began lobbying for better roads to be built. Before long, thanks to him, the modern automobile was ambling down them.

 


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
The more raw material you give to the brain, the more creative it will become. The brain tends to shuffle through a lot of information before coming to a conclusion, a solution or and idea. The implications of this belief for school education is obvious, give students a content rich environment. What matters most greatly is for people to have access to diverse content, even if it is content that they are not professionally related to!

Still Wondering How Trump Won? Try Psychographic Targeting | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

You wake up, yawn, stretch. Pick up the phone. Check Facebook. “Like.” “Like.” “Like,” again.


After 10 “likes,” Michal Kosinski knows you better than your work colleagues. After 70, he knows you better than your partner does, including -- whether these things were explicitly referenced in your clicks or not -- your skin color, your sexual orientation, whether you’re a Democrat or a Republican, whether you smoke or do drugs… The list goes on.


Like some creepy alt-Santa, he knows how open you are. Whether you’re a perfectionist. Whether you’re considerate. Whether you’re neurotic.


Kosinski isn’t a CIA agent or a spy. He isn’t even a marketer. He’s a researcher at Stanford, and he’s worked out how to turn your clicks into psychographic profiles....

Your profile on facebook and other social networking sites, your likes and clicks help researchers and marketing experts to study things that make you click or for that effect important levers and cues that might excite your emotions. Psychographic targeting helps researchers identify emotional switches that can be thrown to make a person buy a new product or even elect a president. It is after social networks have spewed out information about you that marketers start bombarding you with information that will draw your attention. The advertisements that each one of us receives on facebook or any other social site is tailor-made for you!

The Trumpela Effect | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

If you repeat a lie enough, it becomes the truth.”That quote has been attributed to Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels. I say attributed because even though there are many reports of him saying it, there is no public record that he actually did.

 

In other words, it could be a lie that has become the truth simply because it was repeated enough times....

How Employee Burnout Became An Epidemic And What It Might Take To Fix It

How Employee Burnout Became An Epidemic And What It Might Take To Fix It | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

You'd be forgiven for feeling a little burned out from hearing about burnout. For years, experts have been sounding alarms that modern workers are struggling with career-sinking levels of chronic exhaustion and other issues.

 

So when Charlie DeWitt, vice president of business development at Kronos, a workforce management software company, declares that "employee burnout has reached epidemic proportions," you may think you've heard it all before. But according to new research by Kronos and Future Workplace, burnout really is getting even worse and more widespread, and so are the consequences of it. This time around, there are some surprising reasons why—and a few steps employers can take right away to turn things around.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Employee burnout needs to be tackled before it becomes an epidemic. This can be done by addressing work-life balance issues, grievance redressal systems, and ensuring that there are sufficient breaks from routine. Regular chances for a day out retreats where there is more of outdoors activities and less of workshops on abstruse topics will help. The excuse that 30 % attrition is OK is not a good trend. Exceedingly high attrition rates might be the result of employee burnout, and these need to be addressed seriously.

5 Ways to Empower Employees to Drive Change

5 Ways to Empower Employees to Drive Change | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

I have been writing a series of articles on culture-enabled organizational transformation. Much of my philosophies on this subject are derived from learnings on the battlefield as a Navy SEAL, and in the boardroom as an entrepreneur. There are three phases to my transformation model, each with several components: building the change culture, preparing for the change battle, and winning the change fight.

 

Once a company is well-prepared for change and high levels of trust and accountability have been woven into the fabric of the organization's culture, only then can they start preparing for the change battle. Behaviors and mindsets must adapt and a plan of attack developed and communicated. The first phase of winning the change fight is to empower the team and enlist as much participation as possible at all levels.


Via The Learning Factor
rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Organisations should allow their employees to drive change. But then, for that to happen, a culture of trust needs to be developed, post that, the vision of the organisation, philosophy and ethos need to be shared with the employees. After the sharing of the vision, organisations need to provide for disruption and challenging of fixed mindsets. Providing employees with enough opportunities for professional growth, and offering enough sources for learning new things, all of them will help build a workforce of dedicated employees who are willing to drive change!

We’re always chasing something—be it a promotion, a new car, or a significant other. This leads to the belief that, “When (blank) happens, I’ll finally be happy.”

 

While these major events do make us happy at first, research shows this happiness doesn’t last.
