Thank you!! If you are a human, do not fill in this field. Acknowledge and embrace imperfections. View challenges as opportunities. Try different learning tactics. Follow the research on brain plasticity. Stop seeking approval. When you prioritise approval over learning, you sacrifice your own potential for growth. Value the process over the end result. Cultivate a sense of purpose.
Celebrate growth with others. Emphasise growth over speed. Reward actions, not traits. Portray criticism as positive. Dissassociate improvement from failure. Provide regular opportunities for reflection. Let students reflect on their learning at least once a day. Place effort before talent. Hard work should always be rewarded before inherent skill. Cultivate grit. Abandon the image. Make a new goal for every goal accomplished. Take risks in the company of others. Think realistically about time and effort.
It takes time to learn. Take ownership over your attitude. Frederic Theismann says:. February 18 at am. Deserae says:. February 1 at pm. Roy Ashford says:. November 8 at am. Nathaniel Hearn says:.

Technology is disrupting every industry and area of life, and work is no exception. One of the main career implications of the digital revolution is a shift in demand for human expertise. What you know is less relevant than what you may learn, and knowing the answer to questions is less critical than having the ability to ask the right questions in the first place.
Unsurprisingly, employers such as Google, American Express, and Bridgewater Associates make learning an integral part of their talent management systems. Reward continuous learning. Sadly, even when managers understand the importance of learning — at least in theory — they are often more interested in boosting short-term results and performance, which can be an enemy of learning.
By definition, performance is highest when we are not learning. Equally, it is hard for employees to find the necessary time and space to learn when they are asked to maximize results, efficiency, and productivity. A report by Bersin found that among the more than organizations studied, the average employee had only 24 minutes a week for formal learning. This is particularly important if you want your team to produce something innovative.
Give meaningful and constructive feedback. However, it is hard to improve on anything when you are unaware of your limitations, fully satisfied with your potential, or unjustifiably pleased with yourself. Note that people are generally unaware of their ignorance and limitations, especially when they are not very competent, so guidance and feedback from others is critical to helping them improve. However, negative feedback must be provided in a constructive and delicate way — it is a true art — as people are generally less receptive of it than of praise and appreciation, especially in individualistic aka narcissistic cultures.
