John Michel's curator insight, February 3, 8:26 PM

Positive emotions generally work in an opposite way to negative emotions. So, while emotions like fear, anxiety, stress and anger narrow our focus, inhibit our concentration and decrease our cognitive abilities, positive emotions can do the opposite. When we’re feeling upbeat and happy, we’re more likely to have an inclusive focus than a self-centered outlook, and to perform better on cognitively demanding tasks.

These 20 tips will help you approach and navigate those sometimes uncomfortable engagements with a poor performer.

Vickie Barnachea's curator insight, February 13, 4:05 PM

Members or employers who does not perform accordingly must be met and told privately about his/her shortcomings and asked the whys and reasons for such performance. Leaders must be understanding and give a few chances to a certain point for them to improved. It has to be pointed out that there will be just one warning and then subsequent numbers of meetings on the same problem will be officially recorded as infractions as per rules of the company or organization. Leaders must dig into the real reasons behind the poor performance to be able to help each member in improving themselves either by mentoring or be guided by a peer in his work until he/she can perform well.

How To Respond To Criticism (Part 2: Dance)

How To Respond To Criticism (Part 2: Dance) | All About Coaching | Scoop.it

The goal of verbal aikido is to transform a potential fight into a dance. The principles I presented in my previous post are common sense, but their practice is anything but common.

I have made a composite of several challenging comments to my listening and honest-and-respectful posts illustrate how these principles can apply to real conversations.

Note that the context for these conversations is LinkedIn, a site where professionals connect through respectful dialogue. I would not even start this conversation in a negative environment.
