The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You’re a pretty rational person, or so you think: You’re often good at thinking logically and keeping your feelings out of it, right?

Wrong. (Sorry!) It wasn’t long ago that people believed emotions and logic were two completely separate things, operating independently of one another. But breakthroughs in brain science have made it clear that that’s far from true. It turns out that our brains are incapable of making fully unemotional decisions. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, you can use that cognitive reality in your favor to build relationships, network, and gain influence.

These ridiculously simple brain hacks can subtly encourage people to decide in your favor.

Vanessa Ong Li Wen's curator insight, March 19, 12:14 PM
I agree that at times, we need to angle our argument that targets one’s emotional capacity so as to strengthen the message we are trying to convey and be more persuasive. Although logic is an important factor in allowing people to understand what you are trying to say, simply informing them and convincing them are two separate matters. In essence, using positive emotions to encourage people to believe in you is the right way to go. Once they feel that they have established the connection with you, they will naturally be more inclined to believe whatever it is you are trying to say.

How To Ask Radically Candid Questions

How To Ask Radically Candid Questions | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Kim Scott, the author of Radical Candor, Be a Kickass Boss Without Losing Your Humanity, knows it can be painful to be a boss, especially when you have to fire someone.  Getting fired is painful, even traumatic.  It can cause financial hardship and damage a person’s self-confidence.  Scott knows the power of asking the right questions when making a tough decision like this.

She recalls having to fire an employee who wasn’t performing as expected and whom she liked personally.  She was nervous when the meeting started.  Then it got worse.  After she said he had to leave the company, this soon-to-be former team member, asked “Why? You never told me I wasn’t measuring up.”

Scott who has managed teams at Google, Apple and Silicon Valley startups, realized he was right.  Why hadn’t she told him?

Five Ways To Say "No" So You Can Finally Reclaim Your Focus

Five Ways To Say "No" So You Can Finally Reclaim Your Focus | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

It isn't news that culture is obsessed with doing—with being in motion, with being occupied, with being busy. But the upshot of all this doing is that we spend very little time deciding exactly what we should be doing in the first place.

 

Real productivity is more than just activity, after all. And when we're asked to act upon (or ignore) hundreds of updates, requests, and interruptions every single day, to actually step back and decide can be much more difficult than to simply do. Amid all this bombardment, being truly productive depends upon your ability to say "no." In other words, what you don’t do on a daily basis is at least—if not more—important than what you actually do take action on.

Six Things Great Bosses Constantly Remind Their Teams

Six Things Great Bosses Constantly Remind Their Teams | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether you’ve just started training your first hire or you’ve been managing scores of people for decades, you’re in the position of being a leader. And if there’s one aspect of leadership that holds true, regardless of staff size or industry, it’s that being one isn’t for the thin-skinned or the faint of heart.
 

So much of your job isn’t about hitting goals, but rather about being rooted in reality, constantly striving to bring perspective and empathy to whatever situations you encounter. Sometimes, finding the right words can be the biggest challenge of your day. But other times, you’re overthinking it, and it’s as simple as saying these six tiny sentences.

Inspirational Employee Engagement and Employee Appreciation Quotes

Inspirational Employee Engagement and Employee Appreciation Quotes | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

According to the Corporate Leadership Council, employees with lower engagement levels are four times more likely to leave their jobs than those who are highly engaged.

 

But the importance of employee engagement isn't just increased employee retention; it's also about higher productivity.  

 

One study by HR strategy firm Kenexa found that of 64 organizations studied, the organizations with highly engaged employees achieved twice the annual net income of organizations whose employees were less engaged.

5 Morning Rituals That Will Double Your Energy Levels | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Whether you're at the starting line preparing to compete for the gold in the 100 meters or you're trying to be at your most productive state--how you start often predicts the outcome.

If you stumble at the start of the 100 meters--it's nearly impossible to catch up. If you get off to a lethargic start to your day--you're going to be reacting to the day instead of being proactive.

Successful people understand that the day starts as soon as their alarm clock rings.

Your Brain Has A “Shuffle” Button--Here’s How To Use It

Your Brain Has A “Shuffle” Button--Here’s How To Use It | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
In the early 1890s, everybody wanted the newest technological marvel. Democratic and affordable, the bicycle could cut people's commute to work in half and enable them to enjoy the countryside on the weekend. Thousands of bicycle mechanics appeared as if overnight, looking to make bicycles lighter, safer, more comfortable, and easier to pro­duce. They would tinker with ball bearings, rolled steel, differential gears, air-filled tires, and so on.
 
The more raw material you give your brain, the more connections it can make.

Many of these enthusiasts would later use what they’d learned in bicycle workshops to create greater transportation breakthroughs. Both of the Wright Brothers were bicycle mechanics. So was a man named Henry Ford, who watched mass production take hold at a time when cyclists began lobbying for better roads to be built. Before long, thanks to him, the modern automobile was ambling down them.

Having breakthrough ideas means priming your brain with lots of raw material for it to rummage through at random.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, February 21, 10:02 PM
The more raw material you give to the brain, the more creative it will become. The brain tends to shuffle through a lot of information before coming to a conclusion, a solution or and idea. The implications of this belief for school education is obvious, give students a content rich environment. What matters most greatly is for people to have access to diverse content, even if it is content that they are not professionally related to!

This Is How You Future-Proof Your Brain Against Increasing Distractions

This Is How You Future-Proof Your Brain Against Increasing Distractions | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
 

It’s no secret that technology advancements have affected our brains. With instant messages, push notifications, wearable technology, and many other tech-driven distractions, the pace at which we are expected to respond has accelerated. We’re multitasking with unfortunate effects. How much more can our brains take? And is it possible to future-proof them for all the technical advances yet to come?

 

Performance expert and Australian medical practitioner Jenny Brockis, author of Future Brain: 12 Keys to Develop Your High-Performing Brain, thinks so. Our brains are designed to adapt, but there’s a difference between adjusting to change and expecting an organ to endure relentless stress without time to renew, she says. So the first step to future-proofing our brains lies in good physical care, including nutrition, exercise, sleep, and downtime, she says.

Well, adapting in a world full of technology is a bit hard but breaking loose from the hole will take a while. The pros of make your brain proof of distractions is basically try new methods of improvement and having a healthy nutrition. The cons would basically be remaining stagnant and not changing.

Does Your Company's Purpose Resonate With Everyone, Or Just Senior Leaders? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Discovering your company's "purpose" is tough. Sustaining it can be even tougher. Even if you've zeroed in on a mission that your executives love, it won't do your company much good if the rest of your team doesn't share the same sentiment.

 

The challenge is to make sure your entire organization is willing to buy into its stated purpose. The consulting firm Radley Yeldar, which ranks brands according to "social purpose," gives the top spot to Unilever for its sustainability efforts, among other causes beyond the company's bottom line to which it has shown commitment.
