Hate your job? Here’s how to fix it. | Penelope Trunk Blog | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

It happens... it's even sometimes in your life... now, instead of blocking yourself down into depression, try these out... I especially like the middle one: find something what is horrible (among the other horrible things) and improve it a bit... just for your fun (and for your new CV...)... anyhow, don't stop to live, quite the contrary, be active, search for things to do something valuable - until you find a better place... worst is to sit in a corner and have a pity for yourself...:-)))

How to Improve at Work When You’re Not Getting Feedback

How to Improve at Work When You’re Not Getting Feedback | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
A list of the skills that most strongly influence performance reviews.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
...that is, in most of the cases... why on earth is it so difficult to give feedback?! Of course, I know... arrogance ("they are here for working, aren't they?! Why to do so much fuss about this?!"), real or felt incompetence (impostor syndrome: they are just happy that still nobody hasn't discovered that the coat/post is too much, too complicated for them)... we could reengineer this whole thing backwards: those leaders/managers who do not in a demonstrable way do informal/development-focused feedback or rather feed forward, should be dismissed... by bosses who also not strong in giving useful informal feedbacks?! Hmmm... it looks like a wrong cycle... or, one of the necessary & sufficient operating characteristic of a good/result-oriented boss that the people reporting them do not fear what he/she think about them... iit's an effectiveness issue

Information Aversion

Abstract 
We propose a theory of inattention solely based on preferences, absent cognitive limitations or external costs of information. Under disappointment aversion, agents are intrinsically information averse. In a consumption-savings problem, we study how information averse agents cope with their fear of information, to make better decisions: they acquire information at infrequent intervals only, and inattention increases when volatility is high, consistent with the empirical evidence. Adding state-dependent alerts following sharp downturns improves welfare, despite the additional endogenous information costs. Our framework accommodates a broad range of applications, suggesting our approach can explain many observed features of decision under uncertainty

Everyone wants you to be happy: Self-help books dish out advice on how to stop worrying, boost happiness, and banish negative thoughts; bosses want to see smiling enthusiasm in the workplace; and the only way to respond to “how are you?” is with a joyful “great!” But according to Svend Brinkmann, a psychology professor at Denmark'

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
Well, interesting times are coming... this emerging, more and more complex AI stuff will surprise more than one of us...:-))) "...Virtual reality can release an individual’s potential. University of Barcelona researchers conducted an experiment using virtual reality headsets. Participants entered a room where they were supposed to describe a personal problem. Afterwards, they switched bodies with the avatar that was facing them and gave themselves advice. Some just incorporated a duplicate of themselves. Others were sent into the body of Sigmund Freud. The participants incorporating the Viennese psychotherapist gave themselves much more effective counseling. The illusion of being in the body of Freud, made them already feel that they had more expertise to hand out advice..."

Psychology into economics: fast and frugal heuristics

Abstract The present essay focuses on the fast and frugal heuristics program set forth by Gerd Gigerenzer and his fellows. In particular it examines the contribution of Gigerenzer and Goldstein (1996) ‘Reasoning the Fast and Frugal Way: Models of Bounded Rationality’. This essay, following the theoretical propositions and the empirical evidence of Gigerenzer and Goldstein, points out that simple cognitive mechanisms such as fast and frugal heuristics can be capable of successful performance in real world, without the need of satisfying the classical norms of rational inference.

Your Brain on Learning

Your Brain on Learning | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Most trainings fall down because we leave it up to the employee to go back and change their behavior when they go back to an environment that’s already rigged to have them execute the old habit,” she explained. “If they don’t have some intentionality, some chances to develop repetitions of doing it correctly, all the best intentions in the world will fall down.

Via David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
It's about the durable maintenability, or the proficiency of putting into practice the human development (training, coaching, etc.)... I would add four remarks: 

 1. It helps a lot if the leader/manager still before the development shows a genuine interest, even enthusiasm about the development process. Then the participant will know that it is important, he/she should be easier motivated because the workplace is waiting eagerly his/her new or more finetuned skill. 

2. During the training/coaching the facilitator should make it possible that the participants have an as passionate as possible experience, either at the theory as at the practice part. I know, it's not an easy task but without it the money for the development is just thrown out of the window because nobody is learning on purely cognitive basis. If the heart is not there it simply run through without any seeable imprint, if a sort of flow/joy wasn't there, the topics handled are quickly fading...

3. At the end, still during the practice a sort of agreement should be facilitated among the participants (or in case of a personal coaching with the leader/manager and/or with some coworkers) how they exactly will practice in the everyday working relationships what they learned. 

4. After the reinsertion somehow the environment and the participants themselves should be informed and asked for mutual accountability warning in case somebody would fall back into the old habits... 

And you know what? All these are just simple common sense, you do not need for any neuroscience smartness. Of course, it works only if you do it accordingly...

Are you following through on money you are spending on leadership coaching and development? Thats where you get the bangs for your buck!

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, April 12, 1:26 PM

I also find that many training programs are excellent but when taken back to the job, leaders won't all the new practices to be used. Not it becomes a waste of money.

I have told them..." ...and there is another problem with this 24/7 invitation: if they take it really seriously, you would have no time to think, to plan undisturbingly...

Us versus Them: Reframing Resistance to Change

Us versus Them: Reframing Resistance to Change | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Change champions tend to pay attention to the upside of their future vision and the downside of today’s status quo. For example, those who are passionate about customers are hyper-focused on building relationships for the long term. To them, resistors seem greedy or blind.

Conversely, resistors pay attention to the downside of the change and the upside of the current state. They see the risks. When change champions refuse to discuss an issue, resistors assume they are hopelessly naive or sinister actors trying to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. To them, it can seem fiscally reckless to divert attention from the financial aspects of the business to softer issues such as customer experience. Which of them is right? “They both are,” says Jacobs. “But each is only half-right.”

In the worst-case scenario, “us versus them” thinking devolves into factions that compete but never really engage. 

The solution is to reframe how we think about resistance. Rather than assuming critical thinkers are resistors, we would do better to treat them as guardians. Guardians see what needs to be protected, and the trust that can be destroyed by a broken promise or a shortcut. Who else will ask the hard questions? 


Via David Hain
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:
Guardians or fact/idea-checkers who can have a very valuable contribution... and when they feel that their contribution is seen as important and valuable, the reframing could be successful...

David Hain's curator insight, February 3, 2:56 AM

A very sensible way to defuse resistance and to enrol critical friends rather than critics!

Are you really surprised? Think... You routinely using price-comparing sites to find the best buy for your everyday purchases... the threshold for putting out information on the net is (almost) free... That means a big problem for selling standardised products...

Now, translate this to the work-force markets... are your skill a commodity, only bought on price? Or you have some serious pluses... even if you have how to make people to pay attention to this information? Well, there is no free lunch...  you should seriously rethink how to approach the work-force markets...
