Executive Function – Self-Regulation #executive #leadership #traits


#

Executive Function Self-Regulation

Watch the Overview Video

Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircraft on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and control impulses.

When children have opportunities to develop executive function and self-regulation skills, individuals and society experience lifelong benefits. These skills are crucial for learning and development. They also enable positive behavior and allow us to make healthy choices for ourselves and our families.

Executive function and self-regulation skills depend on three types of brain function: working memory, mental flexibility, and self-control. These functions are highly interrelated, and the successful application of executive function skills requires them to operate in coordination with each other.

Each type of executive function skill draws on elements of the others.

  • Working memory governs our ability to retain and manipulate distinct pieces of information over short periods of time.
  • Mental flexibility helps us to sustain or shift attention in response to different demands or to apply different rules in different settings.
  • Self-control enables us to set priorities and resist impulsive actions or responses.

Children aren’t born with these skills—they are born with the potential to develop them. If children do not get what they need from their relationships with adults and the conditions in their environments—or (worse) if those influences are sources of toxic stress —their skill development can be seriously delayed or impaired. Adverse environments resulting from neglect. abuse, and/or violence may expose children to toxic stress, which disrupts brain architecture and impairs the development of executive function.

By focusing on real-life daily situations such as bedtime and mealtime, the Ready4Routines intervention seeks to strengthen executive function skills in adults and children, while also increasing predictability within young children’s lives.

Providing the support that children need to build these skills at home, in early care and education programs, and in other settings they experience regularly is one of society’s most important responsibilities. Growth-promoting environments provide children with scaffolding that helps them practice necessary skills before they must perform them alone. Adults can facilitate the development of a child’s executive function skills by establishing routines, modeling social behavior, and creating and maintaining supportive, reliable relationships. It is also important for children to exercise their developing skills through activities that foster creative play and social connection, teach them how to cope with stress, involve vigorous exercise, and over time, provide opportunities for directing their own actions with decreasing adult supervision.

Victory Starts Here!

The four TRADOC functions of DESIGN. ACQUIRE. BUILD and IMPROVE are crucial to enable the Army to meet specific Army strategic aimpoints. These aimpoints are defined in the Army Strategic Plan between now and 2050 for the three chief of staff of the Army priorities of Readiness (Current Fight), Future Army (Future Fight) and Take Care of the Troops (Always). These aimpoints describe Army capabilities and conditions for the Current Fight, Next Fight and Future Fight.

TRADOC designs the future force to ensure that the United States Army remains the dominate land power in the world.

Multi-Domain Battle is the concept that will allow the Army, with the Joint Force, to maintain military dominance by developing both greater self-sufficiency and deeper joint integration to fight and win without assured air, sea, space and cyber dominance.

TRADOC recruits the next generation of Soldiers and leaders.

Improve Accessions Enterprise: The Army is Soldiers. The Army requires an accessions system that finds and recruits the best future Soldiers across the nation.

TRADOC trains the next generation of Soldiers and leaders.

Soldier 2020 will ensure all entering Soldiers have the knowledge, skills, and abilities they need to succeed in their MOS. It maximizes the Army’s use of available talent.

Lessons learned, refined doctrine and leader development merge at TRADOC to improve the Army .

  • Adapt the Institutional Army: the Army must change for the information age. New methods of training, education, career management, logistical support, financial management, communication–internal and external, and a host of others will improve the Army.
  • New Doctrine: battlefield experiences combined with new concepts require new doctrine that effectively describes how the Army will accomplish its assigned missions.
  • Talent Management: the Army must transcend its industrial age personnel management systems to fully develop and employ the talents each Soldier brings to the fight.
  • Army University: TRADOC is reforming and systematizing the Army school system to make it both more effective and more efficient.
  • NCO 2020: the future will place greater demands on NCOs. NCO 2020 ensures that NCOs have the skills, training and experiences to continue to lead the Army into the future.

    BCD Travel changes top leadership

    By: BCD Travel | Posted: May 13, 2014

    John Snyder, BCD Travel’s former president and chief operating officer, has become president and chief executive officer of the company. The move took effect May 1, and coincided with company executive Mike Janssen’s promotion to chief operating officer. Janssen retains his current responsibilities as president of the Americas region.

    The changes follow Joop Drechsel’s decision to step down as CEO of BCD Travel to focus more on his responsibilities as CEO of BCD Group, the private holding company for BCD Travel and several other firms.

    “These changes are a natural progression for our leaders,” Drechsel said. “This is the team that has led BCD Travel to consistent success in sales, customer retention and expansion, and I believe that John and Mike, along with our Global Chief Financial Officer Stephan Baars, are uniquely positioned to lead the company through its next era of growth.”

    Since joining BCD Travel in 1992, Snyder has aggressively driven strategic alignment and performance improvements within the company. In 2013, he was named to the 30th annual list of the Top 25 most influential business travel executives, compiled by Business Travel News publisher The BTN Group.

    Mike Janssen, a 20-year veteran with BCD Travel, has been instrumental in shaping, strengthening and growing the Americas region and contributing to the company’s overall global growth.

    Last year was BCD Travel’s sixth consecutive year with more than US$1 billion in new air sales awarded. The company’s client-retention rate of 97% continued to lead the market. In mid-2013, BCD Travel acquired online business travel company Travelocity Business in one of the largest acquisitions in the history of the corporate travel industry.

    BCD Travel has 11,000 employees worldwide and operates in nearly 100 countries. The company reported total sales of US$22.4 billion in 2013. Find out more at bcdtravel.com.

    BCD Travel changes top leadership

    By: BCD Travel | Posted: May 13, 2014

    John Snyder, BCD Travel’s former president and chief operating officer, has become president and chief executive officer of the company. The move took effect May 1, and coincided with company executive Mike Janssen’s promotion to chief operating officer. Janssen retains his current responsibilities as president of the Americas region.

    The changes follow Joop Drechsel’s decision to step down as CEO of BCD Travel to focus more on his responsibilities as CEO of BCD Group, the private holding company for BCD Travel and several other firms.

    “These changes are a natural progression for our leaders,” Drechsel said. “This is the team that has led BCD Travel to consistent success in sales, customer retention and expansion, and I believe that John and Mike, along with our Global Chief Financial Officer Stephan Baars, are uniquely positioned to lead the company through its next era of growth.”

    Since joining BCD Travel in 1992, Snyder has aggressively driven strategic alignment and performance improvements within the company. In 2013, he was named to the 30th annual list of the Top 25 most influential business travel executives, compiled by Business Travel News publisher The BTN Group.

    Mike Janssen, a 20-year veteran with BCD Travel, has been instrumental in shaping, strengthening and growing the Americas region and contributing to the company’s overall global growth.

    Last year was BCD Travel’s sixth consecutive year with more than US$1 billion in new air sales awarded. The company’s client-retention rate of 97% continued to lead the market. In mid-2013, BCD Travel acquired online business travel company Travelocity Business in one of the largest acquisitions in the history of the corporate travel industry.

    BCD Travel has 11,000 employees worldwide and operates in nearly 100 countries. The company reported total sales of US$22.4 billion in 2013. Find out more at bcdtravel.com.
