This makes for a life-long learner, encouraging a continuous curiosity. Self-leaders take this curiosity and use it to help them reach their goals. Role of curiosity in personal leadership development. In relation to self-leadership, curiosity requires more than showing interest, is also requires challenging yourself to expand upon it to further develop yourself (Kashdan, 2004). Curiosity allows “us to be more open-minded, flexible, and non-assuming.” Conclusion Vocation, mindfulness, and curiosity are not mutually exclusive topics when discussing their roles in self-leadership.
Creative thinkers Observing what is going on around us is very important for creative thinkers. By developing and using the skills of looking at the things in different ways, I can see a whole new way of doing things that I hadn`t thought of before. Procedures to stimulate imaginative thinking typically involve mental processes, such as how to concentrate on what I normally do not engage in; escape the way I traditionally think what I think outside of the box and pause judgment and allow my fantasy to explore different options. There are times when I am obliged to make difficult decisions and engage in changing and improving the circumstances of other people`s lives. I deal with a whole range of issues and work with colleagues from other
The fact of the matter is that regardless if you plan an active role in your own personal development, you are constantly developing and changing as an individual. Everyone is on their own type of personal development path, but the difference is that some people take more control over their own destiny than other people do. -Your own thoughts are important. At times we consider our own thoughts to be inconsequential and immaterial; however, that couldn't more untrue. The way in which you think will strongly influence your actions, and this can ultimately determine what you get from life.
Standardization and creative thinking have always had a unique relationship because of how both deal with the ways that people look at the world. Standardization can be defined as the process of making something uphold a certain level. Creative thinking has always been thought of as a different way for people to learn and grasp information that might be understood in a more traditional learning method. “Project Classroom Makeover,” written by Cathy Davidson, discusses how standardization has a large impact on people who see the world from a creative way of thinking. The idea of standardizing education is one that has caused much worry in few people’s eyes because of the different ways that people learn and absorb knowledge.
The fact that interpersonal communication takes two people means that it is indivisible. Without the second person, interpersonal communication is impossible. As we grow and learn, we must continually revise and update our personal theories of what works during interpersonal contacts, or our assumptions will compel us to repeat interpersonal scenarios or scripts that are doomed to fail. The effective interpersonal communicator does not take others for granted. Instead of following stereotypes, the effective interpersonal communicator is guided by knowledge and skill.
I thought it was interesting how Brymer and Renshaw mentioned that the mind, body, and environment are continuously influencing one another as there are various approaches in the past that separate mind and body. During learning experiences, I thought it was an interesting concept that not only does the individual need to be aware of their own constraints, but it is important for the facilitator to identify and manipulate the constraints of the individual to facilitate the emergence of new functional movement patterns. Brymer and Renshaw mention that manipulating task constraints is a common way for individuals to improve their performance however the manipulation must be based on representativeness to provide an efficient opportunity for individuals to attune to appropriate affordances to achieve the goal of the task. Therefore, slight changes to an individual’s functional or structural constraints will elicit changes in movement patterns as the motor system will self-organize and search for appropriate movement
Marie Eugenie’s philosophy of education, I am still in the process of breaking the rock that imprisons me from exploring more wisdom and continuing to grow as one would shower me knowledge. I may have grown a lot in terms of changing my perspective to things, being more socially aware, dealing with professionals and leaving a mark behind. Yet, I know that I still have more to develop. Learning is a never-ending process so whenever I go, I am constantly succeeding. Evidently, my take home learnings are not learned inside the classroom but was absorbed through observation and from experience in Assumption
The subject of discussion is already present in our mind in the form of past actions & behaviour of people & past events, therefore your mind feel easy to discuss about them. While on the other hand, your mind has to do exercise to come up with new subjects & ideas which require energy & efforts and we find it difficult. All of us have some sort of deep rooted beliefs, when we find events & personality traits in resonance with our beliefs, we give positive statements. While any mismatch between them results in a negative statement. The new ideas generally challenge your belief system and your comfort zone and you find it difficult to leave either of them.
As the book discusses, there are many ways that we can build our character including the use of reading insightful books about value and setting goals. It controls the way we react to things in our daily life. In other words, it is the spark to how we will take hold of a situation and how we will analyze it. If we lack a strong character, then we often possess less desirable qualities such as laziness and a lack of compassion. If I were to become the leader of an organization I had no prior affiliation with, I would first and foremost establish a good first impression
It will be a shear waste of time. We need to remember that we will only be faced with lessons that are relevant and specific to our own individual growth. And, others will have their own lessons relevant and specific to them for their individual growth. In simple terms, our destinies are different and hence the lessons to be learnt during the journey are different. As part of the much larger mystery and perspective of “life”, one of the important components is “love”.
