So you're at the top of your corporate game.  You rise before dawn, do a thousand crunches, yanked fifty pull-ups, and squated the equivalent weight of your BMW run five miles,  all before you sit in that beauty for your morning commute.  You're big, strong, looking tight and chiseled.  But what about your mental strength?  Have you ever excercised that muscle before getting to work?  Hmmm..

Leadership: If you want more – give more

Leadership: If you want more  – give more | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

How can leadership be about giving more to get more?  Early in my career I had two questions about this when my mentors shared this philosophy with me.

 

Leaders, if you want more  - give more.  It’s just like Bob Burg said in his book, The Go-Giver,“Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.”

Kahneman on Well-Being and Domains of Consciousness

Kahneman on Well-Being and Domains of Consciousness | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
A Nobel Winning Psychologist

 

From the vantage point of the unified theory, there is much to like and only a little to critique regarding Kahneman's work. He is a brilliant experimentalist (I believe he is the only psychologist who has won a Nobel prize-let me know if you know of another) and his studies led to a whole field of behavioral (psychological?) economics. His work on the two mental systems, System 1 and System 2 and their corollaries in consciousness (experiential and reflective/remembering) is directly congruent with the model of cognition advocated for in the unified theory. (Behavioral Investment Theory provides the theoretical frame for System 1, and the Justification Hypothesis for System 2).

Sharrock's curator insight, December 19, 2013 10:10 AM

Kahneman's work indirectly suggests that educators can improve student approaches to problem solving and decision making and as a result improve resilience. If we can overcome some of the destructive habits of the mind on "cruise control", we may improve our outcomes.

 

from the article:

"Kahneman makes three key points in this talk (TEDtalk, where he explains how the two domains of human consciousness differ quite dramatically in what it means to be happy TEDx). The first point, which is somewhat subtle in that he only briefly alludes to it, is that happiness is a complicated construct and that there has been a shift away from this term, as it has been found not to capture the essence of what researchers are interested in. 

The second key point that Kahneman makes is that humans are of two minds, what he refers to in this talk as the experiencing and remembering selves. 

The third key point was how the experiencing self and the remembering self evaluate situations differently."

ASPEL Editor's curator insight, January 14, 2014 5:01 AM

Often times we are faced with the temptation to reach for a fast (and potentially wrongheaded) solution. However, a good strategic leader holds steady, synthesizing information from many sources before developing a viewpoint. If your leader lacks some level of peripheral vision, it can leave your company vulnerable to rivals who detect and act on ambiguous signals. We need strategic leaders who will foster open dialogue, build trust and engage key stakeholders, especially when views diverge. Find out how to become the strategic leader your company needs!
