The Business of Behavioral Economics

The Business of Behavioral Economics | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

You've done everything—endured diets, purged your freezer of Ben & Jerry's, and educated yourself on fat, sugar, and calories. Yet, you can't manage to lose weight.

 

What's wrong with you? According to standard economic theory, which gives humans (perhaps too much) credit for making rational choices, those efforts should be enough to change your behavior. If you know the consequences but still get fat, you must want to be overweight.

Optimism: The Secret Of Great Leadership 

Optimism: The Secret Of Great Leadership  | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

If you’re looking for powerful fuel for your leadership, look at optimism. Winston Churchill used to say “A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” Maybe that’s why optimistic leaders are usually more successful than pessimists.

9 Questions Emotionally Intelligent People Always Ask

9 Questions Emotionally Intelligent People Always Ask | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Emotional Intelligence (EI or EQ) has been a hot Inc. topic written by many of my colleagues. I've also registered my thoughts on the power of EQ in leadership, or how to respond with emotional intelligence to people who push your buttons.

 

But ask any scholar and they'll tell you the study of EQ has not had a smooth history. It has been debated since the mid-1990s over its effectiveness as an evidence-based leadership model,  or as a predictor of job success.

 

Sure, I agree that in many professions -- some higher-level teaching, medicine, accounting, engineering, and other highly-technical professions -- IQ still remains the best predictor of job success.

9 Questions You Need To Ask

Daniel Goleman, the foremost authority on emotional intelligence, has put together these questions to help you evaluate your own emotional intelligence, and get you thinking about your strengths and limitations in EQ.

 

Are you usually aware of your feelings and why you feel that way?

(From the article): Observe Others, Read, Get Coaching Leadership is a skill that can be learned despite many believing that we are born with leadership abilities or not. We typically learn leadership in one of two ways, we work for a bad leader and say, “I’ll never do it that way,” or we work for a good leader and say, “I’ll do it like that.” Over time, we develop our style, but it can be improved and accelerated by books and personal coaching. – Chris Robinson, R3 Coaching

"What Leaders Need To Do To Successfully Resolve A Crisis"  | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Most crisis plans that are actually completed these days are so complicated and compartmentalized that it defies even the most skillful leader’s abilities to lead effectively. Too many crisis plans focus on external issues and the media rather than providing a simple, sensible, constructive, achievable response strategy. I have advocated for many years the concept of the Grand Strategy to drive crisis response using the Golden Hour metaphor as the driving force.

Five Moments When Saying No Is Your Best Strategy

Five Moments When Saying No Is Your Best Strategy | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Most successful leaders have little difficulty saying no to a losing deal, to a project that’s wasting money, or to a request that doesn’t align with their priorities. But these same leaders can find it very uncomfortable to speak up when their concerns are less cut-and-dried or when their organization is hell-bent on pursuing a plan. In certain situations, it can feel politically risky to hesitate or ask too many questions. Even with their direct reports, many leaders find themselves putting off the difficult conversations needed to address issues such as drifting standards, inappropriate behavior, or emerging bad habits.

But, as difficult as it can be, saying no is often the key to effective leadership. Without the ability to push back when needed, you run the risk of “commitment drift”: promises made to customers or employees, or to promote safety, specific values, financial discipline, or social and environmental responsibility are eroded incrementally, without anyone really stopping to think about the consequences. As Joseph Fuller and Michael C. Jensen pointed out in their 2002 paper “Just Say No to Wall Street: Putting a Stop to the Earnings Game,” saying no to such dysfunctional momentum can be your best strategy for helping your company succeed as well as living your values.

If your gut says no, it probably should prompt you to say no - or at least explore your concerns openly!

donhornsby's curator insight, June 8, 10:49 AM
(From the article): Being prepared to recognize and act on these moments of truth makes it less likely that you will blow by critical decision points without giving them the attention they deserve. The fact is, it only gets harder to speak up if you wait. And, as you practice saying no or raising questions constructively, you increase your ability to exert a positive influence on your organization.
