How to Become a Hyper-Learner

STAYING relevant in this Digital Age requires that we learn, unlearn, and relearn as a way of being. Ed Hess calls it Hyper-Learning. How well we think, learn, and engage in the human tasks of the future depends on how well we manage and optimize what’s going on with our minds, brains, and bodies. Humankind has always faced these challenges but what is different today is the intensity—the timeframe we have available to learn, unlearn, and relearn. Our egos make us think we know more than we do ...

The 6 Types of Grit (And How to Develop Them)

We all want to be better than we are today.  And that often requires pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone, even when you don’t feel like it. It requires getting back up and trying again and again when you fail. It requires sticking with a path long enough to see it through.  In short, becoming a better man requires grit .  The concept of grit has become well-known in recent years, due to the efforts of psychologist Angela Duckworth, who has spent her career trying to figure out w...

Choose growth

I was 18 when my dad passed away. In that too short but precious time, he imparted many lessons that continue to guide me today. As the oldest of three daughters, I became the de facto son, joining my dad in doing repairs, tinkering, and building stuff. He taught me how to use tools, repurpose materials, and employ the magic of duct tape. When something wasn’t working, Dad would say, “Use your head. We can figure this out.” That’s when we’d let go of whatever we’d been doing and start tryin...

What Makes a High-Performance Leader?

Guest post from Rob Hartnett: “What is a high-performance leader?” a leader asked me in a Facebook Live session. One of  the many I have done since Covid-19 as we pivot to new ways of working. A high-performance leader is one who is intentional about their leadership. They are not a leader because their position entitles them to be; they see leadership as a verb, a skill to continue to develop and hone. High-performance leaders operate with a growth mindset and are great communica...

The 2020 Summer Reading List for Small Business Owners

When you’re running a business it’s never a bad idea to learn from experts in the field. Luckily for small business owners, most of the world’s top business leaders and entrepreneurs share one thing in common: they read (a lot). Warren Buffett credits his success to reading and Bill Gates reads about 50 books a year. Mark Cuban says he reads more than three hours a day and Elon Musk learned how to build rockets by, you guessed it, reading. So from learning how to better m...

Learned personal antifragility - if you've got it, share it

Many people you know are struggling with the rate of change coming at them through this latest series of Context Shocks (triggered by COVID-19).

CASE STUDY: How Satya Nadella overhauled Microsoft's cutthroat culture and turned it into a trillion-dollar 'growth mindset' company

Microsoft is a trillion-dollar company thanks largely to a culture shift led by Satya Nadella. Since Nadella became CEO in 2014, he's encouraged the entire company to adopt a growth mindset, or the belief that skills are developed through hard work and challenges are opportunities to learn. Before Nadella took over, Microsoft was characterized by competition between teams and between individual employees. Now, in keeping with a growth mindset, Microsoft evaluates employees' performance based p...

Not A Great Public Speaker . . . Yet

My daughter Clara is in 7th grade. Her middle school is doing something that I find exemplary and extraordinary. Each week the administrators and teachers challenge the students with what they call a “character dare.” It’s education intentionally aimed at helping develop students with good character. They learn about things like kindness, mindfulness, and growth mindset. This week, they are learning the power of “YET.” It’s a concept addressed in the research and writing of Carol Dweck, who is p...

Why we need to praise kids' teachability — not just their ability

Our education system often caters to identifying and supporting gifted children.However, an excessive focus on giftedness may not be the best approach for educators.Instead, we may want to emphasize the role of growth and teachability in future success. None In Western societies, we like to put people on pedestals. In a culture that celebrates independence, merit, and personal responsibility, our favorite figures are those that seem to simply be cut from better stuff than the rest of us. Chara...

The Language of Growth

Do you know what a Growth Mindset is? How would you rate your growth mindset? Do you use it in all the areas in which you’re trying to grow? The more I coach, the more I think that a lot of our problems as athletes and humans begins with how much we believe we can change, and whether or not we believe we have power over those changes. The belief that you can change is the essence of a growth mindset. Without the idea that we can improve, why try? Without the confidence that we can create ...

Building Blocks (A Tactical Approach to Change)

We tend to think about change in broad, sweeping terms. We grow dissatisfied with some aspect of our lives or ourselves and we proclaim that THINGS WILL BE DIFFERENT FROM NOW ON. But having coached hundreds of senior leaders and MBA students at Stanford since 2006, I've observed that broad, sweeping change is rare--and this way of thinking about change is at odds with the practices that make successful change efforts more likely. Our preference for familiar patterns of behavior typically rend...

Do participation trophies hinder child development?

Coaches, parents, and pro athletes malign participation trophies for teaching children the wrong life lessons. Psychologists argue it is more beneficial to praise a child's efforts over their achievements. But proponents who use participation trophies as emotional Band-Aids will find they do their children no favors either.Controversial subjects brim with intense emotions. Abortion, the death penalty, climate change, gender identity, assisted suicide, bring up any one of these subjects and you'r...

Understand The Why To Change The How Of Your Spending

by Marc Barlow, author of “Redesign the Reality of Your Finances: Understand the Why to Change the How of Your Spending“  At the most rudimentary level, there are only two things people need to remember when it comes to personal finances: 1) spend less than you make, and 2) invest the rest. If only it were that easy! Most literature on personal finances offers ideas and strategies on how to cut back on spending, eliminate debt, and invest in the future.

Embrace your Wilderness

“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” Mary Kay Ash As a coach, I am always dealing with mindset issues. I have seen people become prisoners of their own past actions and experiences. They find it easy to blame others for their failures, but their mindset does not allow them to learn from these failures and move forward. Dealing with the Wilderness “With a fixed...

Attention Surplus Disorder (Anxiety and Distraction)

Anxiety and Attention At one time or another most of us have felt overwhelmed by anxiety or unable to stop worrying obsessively. Sometimes there’s a specific focus and a vivid response--we wake up in the night with a start, our mind racing, fixated on a recent argument or a stalled project or an avoidable mistake. Sometimes the experience is more more generalized--a gnawing sensation distracts us, and our mind drifts away into a black cloud of concern. I see this pattern regularly in my work wi...

Successful Aging: Important questions that will help you find your passion

Question: I recently retired as a senior scientist from a laboratory. Several people have asked me what I plan to do next. Some have asked, “What is your passion?” To be honest, I have loved my work but never described my work or interests as my passion. I don’t know if I have a passion for something to do in my retirement. I almost feel guilty not being able to answer the question. Am I unusual? — S.G. Answer: Dear S.G., Most middle-age and older adults were not coached on finding their passion...

Learning How to Learn

As I wrote recently, a high tolerance for cognitive dissonance is a hallmark of successful entrepreneurial leadership because it enables such leaders to be exuberant optimists while remaining keenly aware of all the risks they face. A further advantage of such tolerance is that it can play an important role in learning. As psychologist Elliot Aronson has noted, An extremely high drive to reduce dissonance would lead man to weave a cocoon about himself; he would never admit his mistakes and ...
