Leadership: Why do we Fail ? | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Whether we admit it or not, all of us have failed in our lives sometime or the other.Successful people take failure as a learning step in the right direction. In fact, it is good to fail sometimes, but why do we fail ?

Mike Doherty's curator insight, September 6, 2013 7:40 AM

Lack of Goals: Sometimes, in our lives and in our career, we feel that we have "hit the ceiling."  We feel that  there is no where to go further. Our lives have reached a full-stop.  Yes. It is true that this does happen. But , to succeed, we have to sense this before we reach the stage when we think that we cannot progress further and take positive steps on the next part of our lives and career.  We should have a clear vision where we want to go.  It is perfectly fine to make changes to your goals when the need arises, to think about altering your course. We can always have a list of excuses, but to succeed, we need clarity of thoughts, self discipline and a sense of self worth.

From the article:


A longer term trend accounts for more than that which can be attributed to the economic conditions of the past decade. The business thinkers of the Stoos Network point to the economic conditions as a result, rather than a cause, of these inherent enduring problems with the way we work.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, September 1, 2013 11:14 AM

The interesting thing is that persuasive people are not known for always getting their way.  They do however know how to influence, and don't allow their emotions to get in the way of achieving a goal.

 

The article discusses 7; however, below are the top 4 that I completely agree with and my take:

 

 

- Persuasive people listen, and listen, and listen (they sincerely listen to understand, and remain open to better ideas

 

- Persuasive people are purposeful.  They do start with the end in mind, and are clear on what success looks like and the goal

 

- Persuasive people know when to stay quiet.  They are not Yes, But people

 

- Persuasive people know how to connect.  This to me is so important, because they know how to skillfully adapt their message to get the best out of them and others in a way that they are able to genuinely connect

 

Take a read, and please give us your insight on what else should be on the list!

 

Make it a great day!

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

"Thoughtful cognitive neuroscientists such as Rex Jung, Darya Zabelina, Andreas Fink, John Kounios, Mark Beeman, Kalina Christoff, Oshin Vartanian, Jeremy Gray, Hikaru Takeuchi and others are on the forefront of investigating what actually happens in the brain during the creative process. And their findings are overturning conventional notions surrounding the neuroscience of creativity.

 

The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction is not the right one when it comes to understanding how creativity is implemented in the brain. Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.

 

Instead, the entire creative process– from the initial burst of inspiration to the final polished product– consists of many interacting cognitive processes and emotions. Depending on the stage of the creative process, and what you’re actually attempting to create, different brain regions are recruited to handle the task."

As humans we seem programmed to divide everything into this and that. Then find out it is all part of a much wider whole. Brain and creativity no different after all!

The Leadership Triangle: It’s Not Only About The Leader | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

In order to achieve a more comprehensive understanding of the leadership process, we must steer away from leader-centric analysis, towards a more holistic, contextual approach.

 

Leadership behaviour is continually influenced by political and group dynamic and we must therefore not underestimate the role of followers and environments when it comes to measuring the success of our leaders.

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, September 2, 2013 9:53 AM

Want the job...invest a few minutes to read the job posting and company website!

In my opinion most large organizations and about half of mid-size companies have invested in an Applicant Tracking System to help them with the recruitment process.    This is software that works to sort, filiter, access, and search for applicants to save HR and recruiters time.

If you want to increase the chances of your resume being seen by a human, then you need to understand how the filtering process works.  Some systems automatically rank the resumes for the recruiters.  So what do HR and recruiters usually enter into the system to surface the top resumes?

Usually they go to the job posting, job descriptions, and company values as a starting place. 

So before you post your resume, go to the job posting and ensure that your summary or profile is targeted to the position, ensure that your strengths or competencies speak to the ones that are important for the position, make sure that the job experience, skills, and technical skills are laid out with the same industry terms.

Also, one last tip if the job title that you have is the same position; however, your company uses a trendy title....place the similar title next to yours in the resume. 

For example:  if the position you are applying for is Marketing Coordinator; however your company calls is Marketing Assistant
Like below.  Then make sure that the responsibilities actually reflect the same or similar responsibilities.
Marketing Assistant (Marketing Coordinator responsibilities)
