Mindful Judgment and Decision Making - Elke U. Weber and Eric J. Johnson

A full range of psychological processes has been put into play to explain judgment and choice phenomena. Complementing work on attention, information integration, and learning, decision research over the past 10 years has also examined the effects of goals, mental representation, and memory processes. In addition to deliberative processes, automatic processes have gotten closer attention, and the emotions revolution has put affective processes on a footing equal to cognitive ones. Psy-chological process models provide natural predictions about individual differences and lifespan changes and integrate across judgment and decision making ( JDM) phenomena. JDM research leverages our knowledge about psychological processes into causal explanations for important judgment and choice regularities, emphasizing the adaptive use of an abundance of processing alternatives. Such explanations supplement and support existing mathematical descriptions of phenomena such as loss aversion or hyperbolic discounting. Unlike such descriptions, they also provide entry points for interventions designed to help people overcome judgments or choices considered undesirable.

Self-Confidence: Nature or Nurture?

Self-Confidence: Nature or Nurture? | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Is self-confidence something that you're born with or is it taught and developed? It's the classic nature vs. nurture question. While current wisdom has been for some time that it's mostly nurture,
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

I pretty much disagree with this article... But it's very interesting to speak about it for there are some "normal" common sense error in it and it's good to check these... first of all, self-esteem and self-confidence are not the same... self-esteem is an inherent thing what in the early childhood the parents can cherish and can destroy... i.e. they are not implanting it ("nurture") but they have an influence on it... very strong influence... self-esteem in it's best form does not depend on others' opinion... and that is the main difference to self-confidence for this latter is related e.g. to an activity what either you can do excellently or not.... (I used to say, it would be normal if I set to play tennis with Roger Federer (if I would be able to convince him for such an adventure...), my self-confidence level would not be very high... very normal... but my self-esteem as a human being just like him would  not be hurt by a stitch even in this occasion...

How to speak so that people want to listen

How to speak so that people want to listen | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Have you ever felt like you're talking, but nobody is listening? Here's Julian Treasure to help. In this useful talk, the sound expert demonstrates the how-to's of powerful speaking — from some handy vocal exercises to tips on how to speak with empathy. A talk that might help the world sound more beautiful.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

It does happen that we are not listened to… is that  happening to you? Sometimes? Now, that’s the first point, “why” it is, in this short video. It’s about the communication, more exactly about speaking and how and about why it’s bad when it’s bad and how could it be better…

 

Well, if we are not listened to, then, perhaps it’s because what we are doing is:

 

Gossiping (will we not gossip on everybody, only doing it behind their back?)Judging (will we not judge everybody, only saying it behind their back?)We are simply negative towards things (everything?)Complaining (on everything…)We are just enumerating excusesWe are simply lying (is it happening sometimes, isn’t it?)What we are saying is simple dogmatism, we are just trying to push our ideas, that’s it…

 

It’s easy to imagine why our speech is mainly simple noised to them, bad acoustic…

 

Instead of that what if we would consciously communicate what can find on the receiving end open ears? What if the right, conscious, real understanding would become the norm?

 

The effective, conscious communication has several aspects (of course, it is and even the short video is a short summary of the things).

 

The first aspect is the HAIL acronym, meaning here not the ice cubes from the sky but the greeting or acclaiming enthusiastically and the 4 components are as follows:

 

Honesty - being clear and straightAuthenticity - being yourselfIntegrity - being your word, walk as you talkLove – in the sense of wishing them well

 

The second aspect is how to say it, technically, with your voice:

 

RegisterTimbreProsody (not monotonous, dynamic)Pace (tempo, silence...)PitchVolume

And as a last aspect he has mentioned his ritual before such occasion how he is normally warming up himself, his lips, his tongue (watch the end of the video).

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, the balance... the balance is missing... it's so easy to blame the human relations approaches for the weak leadership... the point is that the apt leader knows exactly when to be approachable, listening and when he has to decide and has to give feedback (even he knows well how to give the feedback that it does help and not only hurts...)... it's rarely the approaches, it is mostly the applications which fail... sorry... of course, it's alarmng if half of the leaders answer to the question that he/she is not good in giving feedback... it is not so easy but there are several proven ways how to do it (e.g. the Gordon system but there are also others...)

The 5 Ways to Spot an Emotionally Intelligent Leader

The 5 Ways to Spot an Emotionally Intelligent Leader | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Research has shown us that more than 90 percent of top leadership performers have a high amount of emotional intelligence, or EI.

The higher up the ladder that leaders are, the more people they impact and their EI becomes increasingly important. The person at the top sets the atmosphere that permeates the organization, including the emotional temperature.

Not only does a leader with low emotional intelligence have a negative impact on employee morale, it directly impacts staff retention. We know that the biggest reason that people give for leaving an organization is the relationship with those above them.

Here are five ways to spot an emotionally intelligent leader:


Via David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Excellent, practical test... just thinking... whether if it is (EQ) his/(lesser   extent her...) blindspot, he/(she) will be able to spot these? Or at all will he understands the term? Or will he/(she) wants to find somebody to tell them and if so, he/she is capable to listen? It  - effective/active listening - is the part of the EQ competences.... hmmm.... looks like for some a vicious circle...

David Hain's curator insight, June 29, 2:25 AM

My colleague @wilsonsherriff and I have a regular conversation about how when a presentation really matters, no matter how skilled or experience you are, you want to run away or hide under the bed.

 

In fact, its often a bad sign if the presentation matters and you are not nervous. So its good to review tips to help you come across as confident even when you want to run for the hills.

Preview of some of those tips:

  • 7P's = Proper Preparation & Practice Prevents Piss Poor Performance. (some call it 6 without the ... you know which)
  • Know Your Venue
  • Visualize Success
  • Know Your Audience 
  • Claim the three “audience truths.” One: They believe you’re the expert, so don’t tell them otherwise. Two: They want you to succeed, so they’re on your side. Three: They won’t know when you make a mistake, so don’t announce it
  • Realize you don’t look as nervous as you feel
  • Memorize your opening
  • Get psyched up before you go "on" - See Amy Cuddy  http://on.ted.com/Cuddy

This article touches on some keys to improving your retention in learning. It isn't enough to simply conceptualize - one needs to play, tinker, and practice content... or even better, teach what you want to learn.

 

"One of the studies reviewed by our lab was on meditation and howbeing in the moment decreases the noise in your brain, leading to improved scores on working memory and intelligence tests.

 

When you allow yourself to fully immerse in an experience, you give your brain a chance to make deeper connections, thus enhancing your ability to recall these connections in the future."

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis? Continue reading →

Scientists find how the brain stores our feelings

Scientists find how the brain stores our feelings | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Cornell researchers say brains use a standard code whether we smell, taste or touch something.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, if true, I think it's capital... basically it says that researches seem to prove that the emotions - independently of the sensory channel or type - are all coded in the brain in a standard signal, positive or  negative and from the weak to the strong... there is no special center for the visual or auditive or tasting senses and every type of emotions are "translated" to one code... very interesting... of course, it might be very individualsistic, e. g. the absolute mesure, etc. It opens up the door to the thing,  that pleasures e.g. can not be taken as being in  a hierarchy and it's a  hint to find the more healthy and good intentioned triggers to generate good feelings... we are not any more trapped by the artificially boosted  pleasure triggers which are aggressively  flooding us from any directions... I hope it's true...

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020 | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Last week I was sent a link to an interesting infographic on the ten most important work skills in 2020. It is a graphic respresentation of research done by the University of Phoenix and the Institute for the Future (see their PDF report here). What I like about this is that the team that put it together has looked at the significant drivers of change in society and then worked out what work skills will be required to address these. It’s a thought provoking read for parents, educators and businesses alike. Whilst none of the skills listed are really new, the emphasis is on their growing importance. The timeline is only 6 years away anyway, and so the focus was not on new skills but on what is becoming vital for success right now in our workplaces. You can find the infographic here, and a summary of their points below......
