How to Rebrand Yourself as Creative When You’re Not Perceived That Way

How to Rebrand Yourself as Creative When You’re Not Perceived That Way | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

The contemporary business world lauds those who are seen as creative. Innovators such as Elon Musk and Jony Ive have become household names. Yet, for many of us, despite our best efforts to be recognized as creative thinkers, our suggestions in meetings are ignored and our pitches to bosses get rebuffed.

If your colleagues have already formed an opinion of you as technically competent but a little staid, it’s going to take a lot to change their minds and get them to listen — a situation that’s especially true for women, who, research suggests, are often unfairly viewed as less creative than men.

The constant pressure on being creative can dry up the stream of ideas. One might have to rebrand one'self in order to appear at one's creative best!

9 Skills You Should Learn That Pay Dividends Forever

The further along you are in your career, the easier it is to fall back on the mistaken assumption that you've made it and have all the skills you need to succeed. The tendency is to focus all your energy on getting the job done, assuming that the rest will take care of itself. Big mistake.

New research from Stanford tells the story. Carol Dweck and her colleagues conducted a study with people who were struggling with their performance. One group was taught to perform better on a task that they performed poorly in. The other group received a completely different intervention: for the task that they performed badly in, they were taught that they weren't stuck and that improving their performance was a choice. They discovered that learning produces physiological changes in the brain, just like exercise changes muscles. All they had to do was believe in themselves and make it happen.

When the groups' performance was reassessed a few months later, the group that was taught to perform the task better did even worse. The group that was taught that they had the power to change their brains and improve their performance themselves improved dramatically.

The primary takeover in life is that we should never stop learning. the moment we think that we are who we are is the moment we give away our unrealized potential. In Gandhi's own words, 'Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.'

Some of the most important skills in life are not taught in school. Here are 9 you won't want to miss out on.

Bryan Worn's curator insight, March 26, 2017 1:26 AM

All these skills are learnable, some are hard at first but like driving a car they become second nature when you have enough practice.

Kids Who Do Chores Are More Successful Adults

Want your kids to grow up to be successful? Make them do chores. When they balk (and trust me: they will probably balk), you can tell them that scientific research supports you.

It sounds great, and it's true--but there is a catch. (We'll get to that in a minute.) For now, the science.

In the Harvard Grant Study, the longest running longitudinal study in history, (spanning 75 years and counting--from 1938 to the present), researchers identified two things that people need in order to be happy and successful:

The first? Love.

The second? Work ethic.

And what's the best way to develop work ethic in young people? Based on the experiences of the 724 high-achievers who were part of the study (including people like future-President Kennedy and Ben Bradlee, the Watergate-era editor of The Washington Post) there's a consensus.

rodrick rajive lal's insight:
Encouraging kids to do chores will empower them for life as successful adults. We tend to pamper children, when we discouraged them from making an odd cup of tea, or perhaps empty their plates into the garbage can before placing them in the sink. Teaching children to wash their plates, lay the table, or even dust or tidy their rooms will go a long way in making them successful adults!

5 Bold Predictions For The Future Of Higher Education

5 Bold Predictions For The Future Of Higher Education | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Everything from the emergence of MOOCs to new learning styles and mounting financial and sustainability pressures are impacting the education landscape. Every day higher education leaders are developing new strategies to leverage across these developing challenges and opportunities.

 

The common denominator amidst all this change: students. What should they learn? How can institutions best attract them? How do you best empower their learning? How do you keep them safe? What do they value? These aren’t new questions but the answers are shifting rapidly. The questions are also becoming more critical for our educational institutions given the National Center for Education Statistics report revealing in 2012, for the first time in three decades, demographics predicted a diminishing population for college age students in the United States.

rodrick rajive lal's insight:

Most of the innovations in the field of education are the result of cost-saving issues, and to some extent  issues related to flexibility and accessibility. The use of technology has made it possible to provide cost-effective learning modules for everyone. MOOCs. are an effective way for online learning especially as they are easily accessible and don't burn a hole in the pocket. Formal courses that require your presence in a classroom over a period of time will soon be things of the past.
