Leading through Negativity

Leading through Negativity | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

...this may be due to something called the the negativity bias, a psychological phenomenon by which humans pay more attention to, and give more weight to, negative experiences.

 

There is scientific research showing that we are in a “negativity-handicap” on a daily basis because others will focus on our flaws or mistakes instead of focusing on what we do well or what we can achieve by leveraging our strengths and learning from our mistakes.

Logic+Emotion: Technology Will Only Solve 1/3 of Your Social Business Problem

Logic+Emotion: Technology Will Only Solve 1/3 of Your Social Business Problem | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

The problem with social technology solutions—even really great technology is that it's incomplete.

 

It's no wonder why Salesforce is making a killing!

 

I've seen first hand how a business will freely invest in a technology platform thinking that they have purchased a turnkey solution only to realize shortly after that they've possibly invested in the wrong solution and most definitely underestimated the other two areas which require investment:

Leadership Lessons of R.A. Dickey - Forbes

Leadership Lessons of R.A. Dickey - Forbes | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Dickey’s success is about making hard choices:

 

Dickey is 37; and his path to success has not been an easy one. “Journeyman” is a term that is often used to describe players such as he; good enough to stay in the game, but not necessarily reliable enough to stick with any one team for very long.

 

Essentially, he reinvented himself by mastering the knuckleball – a pitch so unusual that at the moment he is the only active big-league pitcher throwing it – and this was done at considerable personal risk. Even today, after his 20 winning game season, there are whisperings that some won’t consider him for the Cy Young trophy because of the exotic nature of knuckleballers.

Leadership Coaching: How Successful People Deal With Failure

Leadership Coaching: How Successful People Deal With Failure | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

"There is no doubt in my mind that there are many ways to be a winner, but there is really only one way to be a loser and that is to fail and not look beyond the failure." Truly an inspiring words of wisdom from soccer player Kyle Rote Jr.

 

The way people view failure and deal with it- whether they have the ability to look past it and keep accomplishing- affects all aspects of their lives. However, that ability to look beyond failure seems very difficult to practice. Most people do not know where to start searching to do so.

Business Plan vs. Strategic Plan

Business Plan vs. Strategic Plan | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Over the past few weeks I have read articles also featuring this topic on my radio show and in group discussions. Is the business plan dead? Have strategic plans taken their place? Are they one in the same? Do you even need a plan to have a successful business?

 

Just like in business, I believe business plans and strategic plans must transcend old school convention and be used as a catalyst for start up, growth and the revitalization of a business.
