Despite what we see with some so-called leaders (with naricissistic tendencies) in politics, schools, and corporations, leaders assume responsibility and understand they cannot control everything. Good teaching is premised on this as well.

Although managing is essential in certain situations, it is too often conflated with leading.

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity

According to Research, Procrastinating Can Boost Your Creativity | Woman | Scoop.it
Procrastination improves creativity
Art is never finished, only abandoned.” — Leonardo da Vinci
Everything left undone is always still very much on your mind most of the time. You get to think about it more often than tasks you have completed. This encourages you to think about new ways to improve or do it better.

 

Adrienne Branson of Canva says:
“Unfinished work is hard for your mind to let go of — in a good way. Your mind keeps churning, considering other options, creative solutions to the problem. Ever had a project that you just couldn’t stop talking, thinking, or dreaming about? This is how you make that happen.”

 

"The procrastination thought process works best for people who are working on innovative projects and need creative ideas for solve pending problems. You probably won’t benefit from procrastination if you have to deliver on tasks at the office and have strict deadlines to meet.

 

"Innovators and creative professionals use procrastination to their benefit more often than everyone else. Leonardo Da Vinci was a famous procrastinator. He finished the Mona Lisa in 1517 despite having started it in 1503."

Brain plasticity is a two-way street; it is just as easy to generate negative changes as it is positive ones. You have a “use it or lose it” brain. It’s almost as easy to drive changes that impair memory and physical and mental abilities as it is to improve these things. Merzenich says that older people are absolute masters at encouraging plastic brain change in the wrong direction.

You can’t change what you don’t notice. | Woman | Scoop.it
Early in January, I hit a wall.

Over the previous year, I had set out to completely reshape The Energy Project, the company I run, and change is rarely easy. At mid-year, I got drawn into the presidential campaign, and it consumed a great deal of my time and emotional energy. And then, on January 1, my younger brother suffered a severe stroke. On the weekends, I began to travel back and forth between New York and Boston to be with him and his family.   

All this came back to me as I created a series of videos for LinkedIn about managing personal energy – and served as a humbling reminder of just how connected personal renewal is to performance, not just for our clients, but also for me.

5 Team Building Games That Can Teach Critical Thinking Skills

5 Team Building Games That Can Teach Critical Thinking Skills | Woman | Scoop.it
Here are 5 team building games to try out with your students that also develop critical thinking skills. Collaboration and team spirit await you!
more...
Oskar Almazan's curator insight, March 14, 2017 12:21 PM
Team building games offer students fun opportunities to hone critical skills for success in the modern workplace. Students (and future employees!) that value teamwork are more motivated and creative. They’re also better at problem solving and communicating with one another and have a higher level of trust. We already know students love working in groups. Why not make a game of it?
Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, March 18, 2017 4:10 AM
Critical thinking is the most important skill to develop, since in these times of information at hand, we cannot believe everything we see, read, and hear, and that is why it is important to develop this ability as it allows us to be alert and question everything that comes from these means of information. Is a skill that moves a student from concrete ideas to abstract and inferred concepts. Critical thinking allows us to analyze outcomes, compare ideas, identify parallels, sequence events, synthesize information and draw conclusions from a given body of knowledge. Whether it is the proof behind a mathematics formula or an implied tone in an essay, critical thinking skills enable students to solve problems in the real world and on exams in school. Meghan Moll (2014) suggests five tools to develop the critical thinking skills necessary for success on every high school or college test and assignment. 1. Brain games: Recently, websites dedicated to training your brain have enjoyed increased popularity. Lumosity, for example, provides games that aid in improving memory and problem-solving. From timed matching games to order sequence memorization, websites like this can aid in cognition and the ability to ask, "What is the next step?" This skill is critical to learning how to approach complex problems on standardized tests like the ACT and SAT. Rather than playing time-wasting games when you have a lull in your day, search online for brain teasers and peruse the plethora of brain games at your fingertips. 2. Logic puzzles: Before the Internet, puzzles intended to exercise your brain were published in books. Collections of crossword puzzles, logic problems, riddles, sudoku, word problems and word searches can be found at your local bookstore or library. The puzzles in these books are a wonderful strategy to activate different parts of your brain for a round or two of mental gymnastics, and many collections even discuss what each puzzle is meant to target within the mind. 3. Board games: This suggestion may seem strange at first, but do not balk. Choose board games that require more than luck – namely, strategy – for players to win. Any game where players must carefully consider their next move, recognize patterns and remember details will aid in honing critical thinking skills. Certain games like Rubik’s Cube are single-player, while others involve multiple people. Checkers, chess and Mastermind are two-player games that challenge you to plan several steps ahead. Games like Boggle and Scrabble require analyzing information quickly and formulating words, while Clue and Risk test and strengthen your ability to anticipate and react to others’ moves, as well as infer motives. 4. Journaling: Daily reflection – such as maintaining a journal – is a simple way to revisit your day, but it is also a fantastic opportunity to explore ideas. Writing encourages you to expand upon your thoughts and form connections. A journal forces you to slow down and focus on just one or two ideas at a time, which hectic schedules don't otherwise allow. Use your journal to record important ideas and questions and narratives about your life. 5. Book clubs: Students who read for understanding find it far easier to think critically than those who rush to finish. Analyzing a book requires you to delve deeper and ponder complex questions. When reading, think about why the book was written the way it was, what motivates certain characters, and how plot developments may be symbols of foreshadowing. Locate a book club to hone these skills. You will read works you otherwise may not have, and you will learn to examine character development, plot, symbolism and a whole host of other features.
