donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): Whether you call it coaching or not, you’re probably used to helping the people under you to skill up. By intentionally applying good coaching techniques to your work with others, you can succeed in decreasing their reliance on you. With the right approach, you can coach employees to become more resilient, stay grounded in ambiguity and learn through failure. That way, together, you can do more than just weather uncertainty; you can succeed and thrive through it.

Too much graphing parabolas, memorizing the quadratic formula, and learning to diagram sentences and not enough real world material to use and apply. With that being said, here are the top 12 life skills I wish I learned more about in school:

Critical Thinking: A Necessary Skill in the Age of Spin

Critical Thinking: A Necessary Skill in the Age of Spin | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
G. Randy Kasten is an attorney and author of Just Trust Me: Finding the Truth in a World of Spin.

 

   The ability to think critically is one skill separating innovators from followers. Critical thinking reduces the power of advertisers, the unscrupulous and the pretentious, and can neutralize the sway of an unsupported argument. This is a skill most students enjoy learning because they see immediately that it gives them more control.

 

Devastating Consequences


That said, young people -- without significant life experience and anxious to fit in -- are especially vulnerable to surface appeal. Targeted advertising affects their buying and eating habits; choosing friends for the wrong reasons can lead to real heartache. Decisions about joining the military, becoming a parent or choosing a career have indelible effects on a person's life.

 

An inability to think critically at an early age can have devastating consequences.
