In this excellent video, the psychologist Daniel Goleman, author of the books: Emotional Intelligence: Why It Can Matter More Than IQ, Primal Leadership, With a New Preface by the Authors: Unleashing the Power of Emotional Intelligence, and The Triple Focus: A New Approach to Education, presents his book: Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence and the concepts behind it.

Focus is one of those attributes that can lead you to higher performance and productivity levels, as Daniel Goleman argues. Moreover, it is a human feature that, if cultivated correctly, can change your entire life.

A video, worth seeing it!

Leadership Can Set You Free!

Leadership as a discipline and as a daily practice is a lot different to leadership per se (or at least what everybody means, when we talking about leadership!). The discipline of leadership is a self development practice, a one can lead you to radical different ways of doing and behaving, from those you were accustomed previous. For that fact, Leadership is a deeply transformation act, that you can, only, employ freely and deliberately!

Instructional Systems Design [Infographic]

Here is an excellent infographic, from eLearning Infographics, presenting the Instructional Design (or Instructional Systems Design) process. Check it out, if you interested at instructional design, e-Learning and effective learning procedures!

Instructional Design is a methodology, discipline, practice and an art of developing effective learning experiences for the learners. The effectiveness of a such methodology, is proved by the effectiveness of the learning process itself.

Instructional Design: A Brief Introduction

Instructional Design (or Instructional Systems Design (ISD)):

 is the practice of creating “instructional experiences which make the acquisition of knowledge and skill more efficient, effective, and appealing.” The process consists broadly of determining the current state and needs of the learner, defining the end goal of instruction, and creating some “intervention” to assist in the transition. Ideally the process is informed by pedagogically (process of teaching) and andragogically (adult learning) tested theories of learning and may take place in student-only, teacher-led or community-based settings. The outcome of this instruction may be directly observable and scientifically measured or completely hidden and assumed. There are many instructional design models but many are based on the ADDIE model with the five phases: analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation. As a field, instructional design is historically and traditionally rooted in cognitive and behavioral psychology, though recently Constructivism (learning theory) has influenced thinking in the field.(Wikipedia: Instructional design)

A practice as that, it is based on many knowledge domains and derives its effectiveness by the systematic application of valid models (as the ADDIE is) at the mapping of the current training requirement and the development of learning material and learning paths which can lead learners to the achievement of the required learning objectives!
