Solving UNSOLVED problems, issues and challenges
How can we learn BETTER, learn FASTER and learn MORE than we are used to?
Over the past seven years, Dr Robert Wright of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University has been helping his students do just that!
He has developed an innovative pedagogy called “Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D.” to help take students’ learning to the next level. What started as a simple teaching tool, is now being used by some senior executives, entrepreneurs and professors to help open up the ALTERNATIVES to their UNSOLVED problems, issues and challenges.
Each letter of the Staying F.O.C.U.S.E.D. philosophy represents a critical competency:
F - FRESH perspective
O - Think, feel and act like an OWNER
C - Show CONNECTED thinking
U - Have a sense of URGENCY
S - Show team SPIRIT
E - Always ENGAGED
D - Exercise DELIBERATE practice
