donhornsby's curator insight, August 11, 2014 10:50 AM

(from the article): Being the CEO is a delicate balancing act between giving the customers what they say they want, giving the customers what they really need, making bold decisions, and holding on to the company’s core values. A CEO can generate more press through his actions than a quarterly report ever could. Therefore I dare every CEO out there to ask him/herself one question, what type of CEO do you want to be?

10 Business Development Techniques to Grow Sales Fast

10 Business Development Techniques to Grow Sales Fast | Work in Progress | Scoop.it

For a little guidance, I give you 10 lessons from John Whitehead, the fabulously successful former chairman of Goldman Sachs. Besides climbing to the top of the corporate ladder and making billions for his firm, Whitehead stormed the beach at Normandy on D-Day. We should memorize his pearls of wisdom:


1. Don't waste your time going after business you don't really want.


We hired a mechanical engineer from West Point this month to help us grow sales. His focus is to help manufacturing engineers in industrial S&P 500 companies understand why Marlin Steel, my company, is better than our competitors. Why? Our clients are not marketing companies, nor are they point of purchase display companies. These folks don't appreciate quality and engineering. Instead, they are looking for the lowest price. Make sure you point your sales and marketing team in the right direction for profitable business.

What Do All Mentally Tough People Do? By Chris Gaborit

What Do All Mentally Tough People Do? By Chris Gaborit | Work in Progress | Scoop.it

In all of these different contexts, one characteristic emerged as a predictor for success. It wasn't social intelligence, good looks, IQ, or physical health. It was "grit," which the dictionary also defines as "mentally toughness."


Duckworth describes this quality in successful people as "perseverance and passion to achieve long-term goals; having stamina; sticking with your future day in and day out and working hard to make that future a reality; a marathon not a sprint.”


Her studies have shown that there is a correlation between mental toughness and self-control. To achieve those long-term goals there are things mentally tough people avoid. Here are seven of those:

donhornsby's curator insight, August 30, 2014 7:06 PM

If you’re working on something important, then you’ll never feel ready. A side effect of doing challenging work is that you’re pulled by excitement and pushed by confusion at the same time.

You’re bound to feel uncertain, unprepared, and unqualified. But let me assure you of this: what you have right now is enough. You can plan, delay, and revise all you want, but trust me, what you have now is enough to start.

 

It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to start a business, lose weight, write a book, or achieve any number of goals… who you are, what you have, and what you know right now is good enough to get going.

 

We all start in the same place: no money, no resources, no contacts, no experience. The difference is that some people — the winners — choose to start anyway.

Alain Theriault MBA's curator insight, August 31, 2014 11:47 AM

Just Start. Shoot first, aim later

Don Cloud's curator insight, September 1, 2014 1:43 PM

If you are only doing things for which you think you're "ready", then you are *not* growing ... and you are holding yourself back from your greater potential.

 

So get comfortable pushing (or throwing) yourself outside your comfort zone.  And as you grow and develop your people, remember that it's the leaders job (e.g. your job) to push (or throw) them outside of their comfort zone, too -- for their own good.

Your body language shapes who you are

Your body language shapes who you are | Work in Progress | Scoop.it
Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Via Mona Dutta
Bettina Gifford's insight:

Ahh the "power pose" and how it resonates..

Mona Dutta's curator insight, August 13, 2014 3:34 AM

A fascinating and valuable talk on body language, and among the Top 10 TED talks, useful for all women, and anyone else, man or woman who has felt on the lesser side of all power dynamics.
Amy shares that we make sweeping judgments and inferences from body language. And those judgments can predict really meaningful life outcomes like who we hire or promote, who we ask out on a date. We are also influenced by our nonverbals, our thoughts and our feelings and our physiology. When we feel powerful our expressions are about expanding, making ourself big, stretching out, taking up space, opening up. What do we do when we feel powerless? We do exactly the opposite. We close up. We wrap ourselves up. We make ourselves small. We don't want to bump into the person next to us. So following from this, does it mean that our bodies, the way we hold ourselves - power posing, could change our minds, our body chemistry, and that could change our behavior, and our behavior can change our outcomes? Amy shares the science behind it, the many experiments done on it and the outcomes.
