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.

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence?

Can Overthinking Reduce a Leader's Influence? | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

We've all seen this: The CEO who acts instinctively, sometimes with terrible results, keeps his or her job and even develops a loyal following. Meanwhile, the thinker in the executive suite who consistently offers the right, deliberated answer rarely gets a promotion.

 


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor, Kenneth Mikkelsen
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, rest the common sense of the right balance... all attempts to break into actionable pieces what is in the very actual situation is impossible are futile... sometimes intuition is better than too much thinking and sometimes intuition puts things astray...it's a bit mote complicated than "less thinking & moreintuition"" (see books like "Think twice",  "Think again" or Kahneman's...)...

 

Of course and it' an interesting aspect that the  staff is how influenced by how the decision is made... decisions might be powerful  and  with full of confidence made by either by more thinking by more by intuition, the essence is the  congruity, the authenticity of those making it and the transparence of the process...

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 25, 4:54 AM

I guess it is time we realised that overthinking and overanalyzing do not give good returns after all! The ideal CEO is a person who can handle various tasks without getting bogged down by a single task due to over thinking. However, there are many of us who become obsessed with somehow getting to the rooot of a particular problem without realising that we are neglecting other tasks!

The Personal Brand in Driving Success

The Personal Brand in Driving Success | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Defining your proposition and message, and living up to it, will contribute powerfully to your career progression. And when you get to the top, don’t think you need to change your approach.  Brands exist in the hearts and minds of the people who use them, and if you suddenly try to change them, you alienate the customer, which doesn’t do you an awful lot of good.

Leadership through conversations

Leadership through conversations | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

There is the adage, “Managers focus are results; leaders focus on people.” That really should be “leaders focus on results and people,” as in today’s hyper-competitive business environment, we must hit our financial goals or we may not keep our jobs. But how are we going to keep our good people energized and engaged if we don’t invest the time to know them as our team members and what is important to them?

donhornsby's curator insight, August 20, 11:05 AM

(From the article): Senior managers spend up to 50% of their time in meetings, and much of their remaining time speaking with each other, on calls, and in front of their computers. Most of their communication is through e-mails and or is delegated to those who report to them.


We have to free ourselves up. We have to make our meetings shorter, more efficient and more productive, and then take the time for conversations with our people.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 20, 6:11 PM

Leading and conversations are entangled. Pedagogy, as leading, is about engaging students in complex conversations about curricula. The curricula involved are planned and living. The latter belongs to the historical persons entering classrooms, including teachers, which filter the planned curricula.

What Do Leaders Of The Future Need To Be? Courageous + Authentic Storytellers

What Do Leaders Of The Future Need To Be? Courageous + Authentic Storytellers | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
It is often said of business school academics that they are adept at describing – through their case studies and the articles and books they write – business as it is – or was – at a certain time. The problem, of course, is that their audiences have to contend [...]

Via Karen Dietz
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

It's a very intersting topic and mostly I undersign it... though it's culture-dependent too... the context, the connotation you might have by reading e.g. this title... that  might  count too...  coming from a region where story-telling might be a substitute of lots of things, among other things, lying, or - as one of my cross-cultural researcher friend said once - saying "no", I have some reserves... but even in the Anerican culture, whether the executives of Enron e.g. weren't (surely not authentic but) excellent story-tellers? If you are with me on that... 

 

Of course, the message goes better into the deep with emotions and what is better than the story-telling like emotion-vehicle? of course... but to say that the future leader's main characteristics are courage and story-telling capacity is, I don't know, IMHO, not only simplistic but simply not enough...

 

Starting by the main point what story he/she should so well and authentically tell? What the content is of this famous story? I would start here when drawing this profile... and yes the sellability, the motivation-power, the capacity of  being able to attract the followers, to be able to align their energy are also important but somehow the content of all these has a certain priority in my mind...

more...
Karen Dietz's curator insight, August 21, 2:31 PM

Leadership is not easy and certainly not for the faint of heart. It takes guts and courage. Why? Because being authentic takes guts and courage. And leadership is not easy because of the multiple stakeholders, followers, and power brokers with competing agendas that leaders get to dance with.


I like the points made in this article -- that authentic storytelling is critical for a leader's effectiveness. And that it also can help in connecting and working with different audiences while becoming a force for good in the world.


The author being interviewed in this post shares some terrific insights into what authentic storytelling is all about -- along with making the case for how leadership needs to radically change today.

S'Marie Young, CPCC's curator insight, August 22, 3:00 PM

This article highlights some of the qualities successful leaders of the present and future must cultivate, such as courage, resiliency, permeability and transparency. These qualities create a powerful presence, one that people can trust.


Presence is knowing yourself, your values, passions and goals, and being able to communicate them authentically. Presence is also being empathetic to the aspirations of others.

The Difference Between Mentoring & Coaching

Each Friday, RPS highlights five popular news stories from the world of training professionals. Visit our blog each week to see which stories were trending amongst your industry peers. ASTD Mentoring Versus Coaching: What’s the Difference?


Via David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, it's good that we are speaking about this... I agree most of the points... though it's a good occasion to  raise one controversial point (controversial to me...)...

 

In this post you read about the "roles" in the two activities as follows:

 

Mentoring: Talking with a person who has identified his needs prior to entering into a mentoring relationship. The emphasis is on active listening, providing information, making suggestions, and establishing connections.Coaching: Talking to a person, identifying what he needs, and developing an action plan. The emphasis is on instruction, assessing, and monitoring.

 

Now, my point is that if something is not coaching, then, instruction is definitely not part of it.  And active listening which is - rightly because the good mentor works in coaching mode most of the time - enumerated as a mentoring feature is the one of the most important elements of the coaching process. I just want to show these two crying points which I firmly disagree.

 

By the way, it's more common than perhaps you think. In one of my favourite contingent management model, the situational leadership also the word "coaching" i sometimes wrongly handled. There are acc. to the model  4 phases of leadership: telling-selling-participating-delegating... now, sometimes for the "selling" (high task-high relationship/behaviour setup) one uses "coaching" which is - IMHO - flatly wrong. It is the phase when "mentoring" would much more appropriate (covering only a part of the mentoring job which is mainly toward career, etc). And, more or less it is the  "participating" phase (low task-high relationship/behaviour setup) which has rather much common features with the  coaching process, I would call it after that...

 

All the other points are rather fine...

Tips for Handling Compliments and Praise ( - giving, receiving and why it's important) | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
It's all a matter of give and take Some people are generous in dishing out compliments and praise but find it harder to be on the receiving end. Other people complain of never receiving compliments...

Via Lael Johnson
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

It might be surprizing but normally we are not very good at giving and receiving appreciation, compliments or praise... of course, it's very culture-depending but there are common traits... 

 

If you start to take it seriously (that it's important) comes the surprize how difficult is to do it interesingly, colurfully, spontaneously, variably, authentically... by appreciating the act not the person, the actual results and not a general trait... making it personal and (very) actual, here and now (showing our interests, our listening, our understanding what actually has happened, has been made) instead of labelling some general thing which has little to do with the actual achievement (what can be a small thing as well)...

 

We have some "used to" patterns but when we start more to emphasize the appreciation, etc. by doing it more, it's quick to realize how boring and even insulting in a way it could be to both the giver and the reveiver if we are not "learning" it as a new "competence"...:-)))

Via Dan Forbes, David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

I think, this vulnerability concept (what I strongly undersign and admire e.g. in the Getting naked from Lencioni) is simply deductible from the even more basic "requirement" for an ideal leader: his/her credibility and authenticity... that he/she walks as he/she talks... like to show his/her real here and now state... that is an interesting point whether an inspiring leader while he is credible and authentic in the here and now has also a sort of obligation to show courage in spite of all the difficulties they should face... I think that the attitude should be there... that is also a part of his credibility...

The world's best leaders are cast as themselves in a play that never ends | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

One of Bennis’ ideas which has been largely overlooked in leadership studies is the connection he established between leadership and acting. Bennis argued that leaders, like actors, have to perform a role in order to inspire others. They have to engage followers by creating shared meaning. “Hitler is a ghastly example of this ability, and a reminder of the under-appreciated role that rhetoric and performance play in leadership,” Bennis once noted.
