    Casa Verde's Nicaraguan site

    This is a view from the beautiful Casa Verde site in Nicaragua.

    Casa Verde’s Student Center in Nicaragua is being built using sustainable materials and indigenous practices to the furthest extent possible. This supports not only a healthy and engaged lifestyle at Casa Verde, but all infrastructure and buildings will be used as a living educational tools. The facility itself will be a model to demonstrate how to replicate these practices and give students hands on experience with green and alternative systems.

    21 bad habits

    A helpful Amazon reviewer has taken the time to summarise the 21 bad habits (well, 20 actually) outlined by Marshall Goldsmith in his book "What Got You Here Won't Get You There".

    I've reposted them below:

    Letting winning get in the way of relationships you need
    Dropping too many ideas on those who work for you
    Being judgmental rather than helpful
    Slamming people in public or behind their backs
    Making comments that indicate you disagree with everything that's just been said
    Showing off how smart you think you are
    Saying anything in anger
    Being negative

    The nature of power is changing

    Great 'world 1.0 -> world 2.0' post from Euan Semple. Best line:

    "It is not about technology but about a shift in behaviours from a command and control mentality to an instigate and nurture one."

    Leadership as service

    In a representative democracy, I think people will cede authority to a leader if they think they won't lose their power. But in social media projects, they will only allow someone to lead them if their power will increase.

    The more active and engaged the population becomes, or needs to become, the more the task of leading them becomes about enabling and serving, and not setting directions or crushing dissent. Those dissenting energies are still valuable energies, and the direction is chosen by the crowd.

    The Facebook Generation vs. the Fortune 500

    Great article (via @guykawasaki) on how the expectations of the next generation are reshaping the businesses they work for. 12 points about how the new workplace will need to reflect the principles of the social web.

    Here are my favourites:
    * All ideas compete on an equal footing.
    * Leaders serve rather than preside.
    * Resources get attracted, not allocated.

    Stop reading your damn email !

    I was into email about a decade ago. These days I prefer to avoid communication forms that demand my attention. I can definitely recommend ending an email (and twitter) (and RSS) addiction.

    Inspired teaching - free e-course

    My friend Nick worked on this course with a friend of his who has sadly passed away, but he's made it available now for free in his memory. It includes a PDF guide plus two hours of supporting audio comprising seven easy lessons in how to identify what you know and competently teach it.

    As Nick says, "we would love you to have access to Rick’s material free of charge – with just one condition – please use the material to teach what you have to share."

    Might be of interest to all those "long-time learners, first-time teachers" out there?
