The Evolution Of Michael Phelps

Life is never easy. Challenges, happen for all of us and the only question is if we allow them to take us off our game or use them as inspiration to find the good purpose in them.

This video is very well produced, inspiring and a reminder to keep going.

Great Is In The Details

GREAT:

  1. Notably large in size.
  2. Remarkable in magnitude, degree, or effectiveness.
  3. Full of emotion.
  4. Chief or preeminent over others.
  5. Markedly superior in character or quality.
  6. Remarkably skilled.

DETAIL:

  1. A small part of something.
  2. A particular fact or piece of information about something or someone.
  3. Any small section of a larger structure or whole considered as a unit.

It takes energy and dedication to focus on details and continue this over time. All great works of art, gold medals, moving design, music, financial and business success involves this same energy and dedication to details that most people consider boring and repetitive.

What great work will you engage in today?

21,674 hours of practice will move an audience. Wow.

We all have at least one thing in common: we started life as a baby and grew into an adult!

Consider for a moment how we learnt as children. We touched everything, tasted everything, played with everything, asked questions about everything. All our senses were engaged in a process of discovering the world around us.

Then we went through formal education and learnt to sit still for hours. We learnt that the teacher expected certain answers, even if our experience of the world was different from the answer they were asking for. We learnt to fit in, be good and do as we were told.

Well some of us learnt these things!

Hyper-Speed Experiential Learning is all about including the whole person in the process and discovering the answers vs being told what is a right answer and what is a wrong answer. It’s about including all the senses in the experience and inspiring the student to think, feel and operate holistically and to include their; spiritual, mental, emotional and physical selves.

goldzone-experiential-learning-table-8-13-15The above diagram demonstrates what is possible in terms of retention of information based on the mode of learning. It is obvious to most people that the more actively engaged a student is and the more of themselves that are included in the experience the more they learn and the less they forget.

Let’s bring back the joy of learning!

At Goldzone Education, we believe that the world has changed so fast that traditional ways of teaching and learning are too slow and ineffective. People of all ages are immersed in high-definition movies, television, video games, giant monitors, instant messaging, smartphones and smart watches.

Our methods of teaching, delivering content and
learning have got to change with the times.

We need exciting content and teachers who inspire us to make changes, be the best we can be and to realize our full potential.

Every Goldzone program we deliver uses small group discussions, massive video screens, nightclub quality surround sound, laser lights, image reinforcement, captivating images, inspiring videos, the most beautiful smells and most important of all dynamic facilitation.

It is never boring!

Large corporations have the budgets to invest in one-off learning environments for their corporate training, however, few of them build purpose built classrooms on this scale. As for small and medium businesses, they are mostly out of reach. Our vision is to change that. We need better quality programs and learning environments for the hundreds of millions of small businesses around the world. think of the possible impact…

We also need to unlearn old ideas, thoughts and information that is no longer relevant. Read more about unlearning and “clean slate” > here.

If you are looking for a change and are ready for the most fun you can have as an adult in a crafted learning environment… check out the 3-Day GOLDZONE Experience. It will change your mind about learning, engage all your senses and most of all make you a better leader!

We Are From the Future

I have watched this more than 50 times… and it still blows my mind!

The Workplace of The Future

Everyone Needs a Coach

The world’s best actors, athletes, and business people have coaches. Most average and ordinary people see having a coach as unnecessary, expensive, and a waste of money.

Really?

If a coach could help you to double your income, isn’t that a good investment?

If a coach helps you to resolve a difficult business negotiation, and you save a multi-million dollar deal, isn’t that a good investment?

If a coach helps you to save your marriage from divorce, doesn’t that save half of your net worth? Sounds like a good investment to me!

Over the years, I have hired a lot of coaches to work with me, as well as to work with my colleagues and clients. There is a huge difference between coaches. You could sum that up as: If you want to be the best, hire the best coach!

Changing Education Paradigms

Google’s Management Rules

In 2009 Google embarked on a project to analyze performance reviews, feedback surveys and nominations for top-manager awards to identify the top habits of the most successful Google managers… below are the results courtesy of the New York Times. It is interesting that #1 on the list is to be a good coach…

 

 

 

The Importance of Company Culture

Check out this video from ABC Nightline about Zappos.com – they are trying to revolutionize how business is done and how people work… awesome!

Would you pay Employees $2,000 to quit?

Zappos.com, which works hard to recruit people to join the company, says to its newest employees: “If you quit today, we will pay you for the amount of time you’ve worked, plus we will offer you a bonus.” Zappos.com actually bribes its new employees to quit!

The thinking is that if you’re willing to take the company up on The Offer, you obviously don’t have the sense of commitment they are looking for.
