Is everyone entitled to their opinion?

Is everyone entitled to their opinion? | All Together Now | Scoop.it

Perhaps, but that doesn't mean we need to pay the slightest bit of attention. There are two things that disqualify someone from being listened to: Lack of standing and lack of credibility in the topic arena. 

 

When you walk up to an artist and tell her you don't like her painting style, you should probably be ignored. If you've never purchased expensive original art, don't own a gallery and don't write an influential column in ArtNews, then by all means, you MUST be ignored.

The Main Drivers of Employee Engagement | trainingmag.com | All Together Now | Scoop.it

Employees stay with their organizations when they believe it is in their self-interest (rational commitment). But they exert discretionary effort when they believe in the value of their job, their team, and their organization (emotional commitment).

Strive For Work-Life Integration, Not Balance | Fast Company

Strive For Work-Life Integration, Not Balance | Fast Company | All Together Now | Scoop.it

So here are a few key takeaways. First, do not try to balance anything. Second, try to integrate instead, which requires some real awareness of your preferred behaviors, self-identity, and sense of control. You need to dedicate some time to figuring out those preferences. Finally, there’s no “right” way to create an integrated life.

7 Secrets to Keeping Your Employees Happy

7 Secrets to Keeping Your Employees Happy | All Together Now | Scoop.it
Many small business owners become entrepreneurs in their pursuit of happiness. Being their own boss and proving their idea can work is a big source of satisfaction for many of them.

 

Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project, knows a lot about what makes business people happy. She spent a year test-driving conventional wisdom, current scientific studies, and lessons from pop cultures about how to be happier at work and at life.

 

In my interview with her, many of the themes that Gretchen uncovered makes achieving happiness critical to every company’s success.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 23, 2013 9:40 PM

Excellent resource.  All seven are good, here are the first 3:

 

1. Recognize when employees are making progress. Pause and highlight milestones that people hit or challenges they have overcome. Ensure that people feel their contributions are rewarded by simply saying "thank you."

 

2. Make employees feel like they belong. To be happy at work, it’s important to  feel like “you have a friend.” This gets challenging especially when the company gets busy. People need to feel like they know each other and so time like this yields positive results.

 

3. Take an interest in who employees actually are. One of the key questions that always gets asked in employee surveys is "Do you feel like your boss cares about you and is trying to give you the tools to succeed?” This will lead to employees that are much more engaged at work.

Strong, direct wiring in brain connects feelings with focus. Although scientists knew that emotionally significant events quickly capture attention, it wasn’t clear how the process works. To find out, Basilis Zikopoulos and Helen Barbas, both of Boston University, started with a likely suspect — the amygdala.

Apologies To The Parents I Judged Four Years Ago

Apologies To The Parents I Judged Four Years Ago | All Together Now | Scoop.it

"Pre-children: I was going to cloth diaper. Post-children: I did with my daughter, sort of, but not with my twins. Pre-children: No TV until age of 2 and then only 30 minutes a day. Post-children: Ha."

"Because here's another realization I've made as a parent: Everyone's situation is different. There is a story behind every action and inaction. Every parent has his or her own style. Every child has his or her own temperament. What might be a stellar day for my family has been a downright awful day for another -- perhaps the parent's job is in danger, their parent is sick or they just had an argument with their spouse. Perhaps the child is failing math or being bullied at school, or the toddler hasn't slept for two weeks. This can explain the short-temper in the grocery store or the harsher-than-necessary punishment, or the lack of care when it comes to sweets or TV or a late bedtime. We don't know, can't know, someone's entire story."

Empathy: The Ability that Makes us Truly Human

Empathy: The Ability that Makes us Truly Human | All Together Now | Scoop.it
Empathy leads to healing and resolution, in place of conflict.

 

Just as the lack of empathy makes cruelty and oppression possible, the presence of empathy heals conflict. The ability to empathise makes us truly human, and the wider it stretches - from victims to offenders, from one ethnic group to another, from nation to nation and religion to religion - the less brutal and more harmonious a place the world will become.

Wellbeing, happiness and sustainability: hallmarks of a new economic paradigm

Wellbeing, happiness and sustainability: hallmarks of a new economic paradigm | All Together Now | Scoop.it

What do the following people have in common? Nobel laureate economist Joseph Stiglitz, former Australian deputy prime minister Tim Fischer, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, HRH Prince Charles, OECD chief statistician Martine Durand, Indian ecological activist Vandanna Shiva, the President of Costa Rica, Laura Chinchilla Miranda, and former head of the British Civil Service, Lord Gus O’Donnell?

Answer: They were just some of over 600 delegates including heads of state, Nobel laureates, spiritual, business and community leaders who contributed to the opening of the recent United Nations High Level Meeting on Wellbeing and Happiness: Defining A New Economic Paradigm.

This landmark meeting, convened by the Prime Minister of Bhutan, Jigmi Y Thinley, followed on from the 2011 UN General Assembly motion calling for governments to promote polices focusing on sustainability, happiness and wellbeing as opposed to narrower definitions of economic growth measured solely by the expansion of GDP.
