Pearman by way of Einstein

Albert Einstein famously described the physics of the status quo with his proof: “(w)e cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them.”

Roger Pearman, quoted recently in a business Journal, echoed that irrefutable logic as applied to the new learning & development modalities:

“Millennials are shaking organizations up in a lot of ways,” Pearman said. “They’re causing organizations to say the assumptions that we’ve had in the past are not going to enable us to be successful in the future.”

Read it in the Rochester Business Journal, Nov. 25, 2016 edition, or online.

This just in: "EQ does not exist." Unless of course, it actually DOES.

"The knowledge we have on emotional intelligence—namely that there is information in emotions and emotionally intelligent people know how to recognize and use the information for productive purposes—is instructive. Parallel to all studies of intelligences, EQ research has at its core the notion that we perceive and act on emotions and can do so in varying degrees of effectiveness. In so far as this model holds up well, it seems “real” enough to posit that EQ does exist as a factor in human performance."
