In the first ever LifeWorks Podcast, Jai and Adam talk about the hottest buzzword flying around education these days: Executive Functioning.
Executive Functioning is interesting because it gets to the heart of what so many people struggle with in terms of doing what we set out to do. After all, knowing the facts necessary to complete a task often isn’t the hardest part. So why isn’t knowing what to do enough?
Showing up, starting tasks, finishing tasks, regulating difficult emotions, and organizing effectively are challenges for everyone, except maybe Elon Musk. But Executive Functioning can actually be broken down into individual skills that, despite popular misconception, can be learned at will. Really. You just have to know what to do.
