To Be a Better #Leader, Learn How to Learn

To Be a Better #Leader, Learn How to Learn | Education | Scoop.it

Here’s the problem: More than ever before, change is the rule, not the exception, in business. Globalization means more competition. The technology that makes you better than your competition today is obsolete tomorrow. Any knowledge you already possess is depreciating at an accelerating rate. How do you cope with the instability of it all?

Excellent tips!

 

I would like to offer one key philosophy that we at our company have been offering to our leaders.....Learning is not enough, we as leaders need to be constantly learning, unlearning, and re-learning.  The game has changed and the rules are evolving by the minute. 

 

Keep your running shoes on, the ride is exciting as long as you remain open, flexible, and adaptable to change.  Remember, if it is difficult...you are about to grow and learn something new. 

 

Hope you enjoy the article and my humble nuggets:)

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

The way we understand leadership today needs to evolve. Understanding that what you once knew that got you where you are is not enough to keep going is important. Understanding the new responsibilities and expectations of leaders is important. For instance, being a good leader sometimes means being a good follower. And as this article points out, a good leader is a consummate learner. Without that, the things you are leading people to have already passed and others are already on to the next thing.

Strategic Reading: What the Mind Needs to Do to Read Nonfiction

Strategic Reading: What the Mind Needs to Do to Read Nonfiction | Education | Scoop.it

By Nancy AkhavanMany children are not strategic readers of nonfiction text; they dive into reading nonfiction the same way they approach a story or a novel. But if students are to become literate readers in a world filled with an abundance of information, they need to be good readers and strategic readers. Strategic readers - establish goals for reading; - select reading strategies appropriate for the text they are reading; - monitor their reading to determine if they are comprehending or not; and - have a positive attitude toward reading.

I've tried the quiz and sharing documents.  Very nice.  It's a good site to be able to use although I didn't know there was so many other ways it could be used.

Excellent article...thank you so much for the suggestion! 

 

The interview will be concerned with the gap; however, most inerviewers really want to know that you have made good use of that time.

 

Did you volunteer, learn new skills, go back to school, help with an urgent family situation.  Please read on to gain more insight on how to discuss your gap.

 

Until next time...PS - Live on Purpose!

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, May 13, 2014 2:52 AM

Interviewing can be an awful lot like first dates.  You put so much time and effort into what you are going to wear, what you are going to say, and how to put your best foot forward.

 

The entire interview process surely can play its toll on a person.  Take a read on some tips to help you make the interview process a smoother more relaxing one.

 

Quick tip:  Think of the stress that you have bottled up as positive energy.  You need that energy in order to be at your best.  The key is to be purposeful and use your energy to your advantage. 

 

Smile, walk with energy, be alert, and be fully engaged.  Remember your technical skills and experience may have gotten you the invite for the interview; however, what will land you the job is your interpersonal skills and competencies. 

 

So don't be afraid to show your enthusiasm for the postiion and the company!

 

Wishing you the best of luck on your next interview.

 

Until next time....Live on Purpose!
