By grouping each piece into a large whole, you can improve the amount of information you can remember.Using focused and diffused modes *: “your mind needs to be able to go back and forth between the two different learning modes…. allowing yourself to grow a neuro-scaffold to hang your thinking on”*From: Learning how to learn, A Coursera MOOC with Dr. Barbara Oakley & Dr. Terrence SejnowskiMental Models ** • Chunking on Steroids = Latticeworks of Chunks = mental models • Mental models = mind’s toolbox for making decisions • “you must have a large number of them, and they must be fundamentally lasting ideas” ** From Farnam Street Blog: https://www.farnamstreetblog.com/mental-models/Get enough sleep! *Learning agility research for me “The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearnâ€? Alvin Toffler3X15% Is a top predictor of high potential. It is estimated that just 15% of the global workforce are highly agile. We can help you identify and develop this crucial growth attribute.2X+25% Korn Ferry found companies with highly agile executives have 25% high profit margins than their peer group. *Korn Ferry Institute study, 2014https://www.kornferry.com/developing-learning-agility1X4X5XExecutives with high levels of learning agility, tolerance for ambiguity, empathy and social fluidity are five times more likely to be highly engaged.2x Individuals with high learning agility are promoted twice as fast as individuals with low learning agility. *Korn Ferry Institute study, 2014Survival skills for me: learning agility • Traditional learning practices are becoming less effective • Learning does not stop with reading or attending training • Life around us provides opportunities to learn (the experience is active learning) • How do we improve the effectiveness and value of our active learning?Learning Agility Spiral for Active, Continuous and Intentional Learning AwarenessShare and Explain AwarenessEvaluate the LearningExplore Alternatives Implement via ExperimentsI may be biased “We’d rather do the quick, simple thing than the important complicated thing, even if the important complicated thing is ultimately a better use of time and energyâ€?https://betterhumans.coach.me/cognitive-bias-cheat-sheet-55a472476b18Survival tools for me: “know thyself” Use the SEEDs Model to understand and Manage your BiasesUse the SCARF model to understand your triggers.AWAY From threat responseStatus Certainty Autonomy Relatedness Fairness© David RockTOWARD5 Main types of Biases: • Similarity • Expedience • Experience • Distance • SafetyInscription over the Greek temple in DelphiClarity of Purpose Why Discovery course by Simon Sinek: “Everyone has a WHY.
