What looks like a distracted and fragmented world of work gains clarity when you understand the simple credo that drives it: blended leaders believe that connected brains are more powerful than unconnected brains, that more brains are better than fewer when solving complex problems or dealing with a world, technological or otherwise, that changes constantly.
I don't have strong handwriting/fine motor skills. The combination of the grid templates and being able to shrink objects in Explain Everything has always been useful for me. In Collaborative Whiteboard, I can create custom background colors and patterns (lines, grid, dots, texture) that make this even easier for me,
If a video you shoot ever has the wrong orientation associated with it (i.e. always looks to be rotated 90 degrees in the wrong direction), you can use iMovie for iPhone to solve the problem very quickly. This usually happens when after pressing record you change the orientation of the device.
The export time will depend on the length of the video. You can select just a segment of the video if only part of it accidentally got turned.
While doing a post-typeset review of the book, I found a missing comma. The section where it is contained is a fun one. Comma was added in the paste below.
With a quick search of a Google Group he belongs to, Reshan can find more than five years worth of documented knowledge gaps in the form of requests for help to do the job he was technically being paid to do. Participating in such a forum may seem like a risk, because he was simultaneously exposing these gaps and requests for help to people who may be future bosses or who may someday be competing for the same job as he is.
Steve Valentine, author of the Refreshing Wednesday blog and a co-conspirator of mine on several projects, mentioned me in a tweet this morning. That lead me to read his blog post. That gave me an idea for my own post. I am budding hack when it comes to visual note-taking, but people have been curious about my process. So I hit record in Explain Everything (muted my microphone) and sketched as I re-read Steve's post.
I had the privilege of facilitating a course at Columbia's School for Professional Studies with Dr. Jason Wingard, who is also Dean of the School. I had already become very familiar with his work in preparation for the course, but watching a group of students wrestle with it and develop their own competencies over the course of a very intense week was a great learning experience for me. I highly recommend checking out Learning to Succeed by Dr. Wingard and learning more about CILS - the contiguous integration of learning and strategy.
Imagine 5 musicians getting together in the same room and needing a few bars to figure out 1) what key they are in and 2) what time signature. By the end, they land there. This is 3 days late.
Here are the sketches I created while facilitating a course at Columbia's School of Professional Studies, led by Dr. Jason Wingard who is also the Dean of the school.
