Top 5 Lessons Your Mother Taught You About Becoming a Successful Coach

Top 5 Lessons Your Mother Taught You About Becoming a Successful Coach | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Good... with one slight modification re the 1st "lesson"... 

 

The "Treat people the way you want to be treated" - this old and true adage is perfect in the completely balanced cituations, e.g. in a democracy every citizen should keep it in mind...  and in the coaching there is a slight plus, though it's highly emphasised as a partner-type of relationship...

 

With the slight modification I propose is not my idea, I don't know the source, the statement (the lesson what by the way the mothers know and practice also very well...) sounds like: "Treat people the way they wanted to be treated...." - I doesn't mean here that if he/she want to hide something from him-/herself, you should g with is, it doesn't mean that you should be slaverish or complacent with the coachee... it only means that you are "playing" with him/her on his territory, his map and it will never match completely yours, therefore, you'd better pay attention how he/she wants to be handled than searching for anything else...

"Le manque d'impertinence a des effets néfastes sur l'économie ..." - L'Usine Nouvelle

"Le manque d'impertinence a des effets néfastes sur l'économie ..." - L'Usine Nouvelle | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Coach et professeur à l’école de management de Grenoble, Agnès Muir-Poulle publie aux presses universitaires de Grenoble un "Petit traité d’impertinence constructive". L’ouvrage décrypte pourquoi il est urgent de libérer la parole dans l’entreprise et comment cette libération est synonyme d’une plus grande efficacité. Dans l’interview qu’elle nous a accordé, elle revient aussi sur le bon usage de la vitesse et sur la façon dont le management doit évoluer pour s’adapter à la société et à l’économie du 21e siècle. Son constat est radical :  le caporalisme c’est fini !

Erinnerungen sind manipulierbar

Ob der erste Kuss oder eine unangenehme Erfahrung: Viele unserer Erinnerungen sind scheinbar untrennbar mit Gefühlen verknüpft. Doch jetzt stellt sich heraus, dass diese Verknüpfung weitaus weniger stabil und dauerhaft ist als angenommen – sie kann sogar nachträglich manipuliert werden. Genau dies ist US-Forschern nun in einem Experiment mit Mäusen gelungen: Durch eine gezielte Manipulation der Hirnaktivität kehrten sie die mit einem Ort verknüpften Angstgefühle der Tiere in angenehme Emotionen um und umgekehrt. Lange Zeit galten unsere Erinnerungen als nahezu unveränderbar, als quasi fest in den Langzeitspeicher des Gehirns eingeprägt. Inzwischen allerdings mehren sich die Hinweise darauf, dass unser Gedächtnis auch alte “Lagerbestände” häufig nachträglich modifiziert. So kann beispielsweise Schlafmangel dazu führen, dass Erinnerungen ungenau und falsch werden, wie erst kürzlich eine Studie zeigte. Aber auch Lebensereignisse können unsere Erinnerungen im Nachhinein anders einfärben: Sahen wir zuvor das erste Rendezvous mit einem Partner in rosigem Licht, ruft es eher negative Gefühle hervor, wenn wir gerade eine hässliche Trennung mit diesem Partner hinter uns haben. In diesem Fall bleibt die Erinnerung an das Ereignis intakt, aber die damit verknüpften Emotionen ändern sich. Möglich wird dies, weil das Gehirn Sacherinnerungen – beispielsweise an den Ort oder das Geschehen – und Emotionen an zwei verschiedenen Stellen abspeichert: der Gedächtnisinhalt im Hippocampus und das Gefühl in der Amygdala.....

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Yes, exactly... memory is prone to manipulation... we all "manipulate" - mainly unconsciously - our past... that's the starting point to imagine our desired future state, to live it the most possible vividly and in very detailed... then, here and there something will happen from the future "state"... it's not a goal, it's an environment, it's a context... when this starts to happen, you will start to "remember" on your future and, voilà, the future happens...:-))) (it is based on Chris Iveson's (a solution-focused therapist & coach) workshop in Budapest in last May...:-)))

How Your Brain Responds to Performance Rankings

How Your Brain Responds to Performance Rankings | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Watch this video to see why traditional employee evaluations are flawed. For more insights, read " Kill Your Performance Ratings ."

Via ellenjharris
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

In short: badly... interesting material...

ellenjharris's curator insight, September 5, 11:27 PM

With direct experience with the traditional model, many highly talented professionals were mis-ranked in their careers.  The results of mis-ranking meant a loss of the very types of professionals companies desperately want to hire but cannot find. 

 

Too often the 'right' person for the position is not inspired to work for organization s who place metrics above how people interact and engage to accomplish project tasks. 

 

The model referenced in this video is one found outside the United States in companies whose studies around organizational development and behavior through knowledge management have reduced the 'barrier's-to-entry' where disparate team are encouraged to collaborate, innovate. 

 

This invariably leads to competitive advantage in global markets where the U.S. struggles to sustain a competitive position.

 

Siloed organizations are now fortressed in a manner that stymies growth and stalls internal progression for a variety of professionals who determine their only option is to devise their own exit strategy from an professionally unhealthy work environment.

 

The solutions require a dedication to an end result with direct impact on top-line growth.  Unfortunately human metrics get in the way of revenue growth and the possibilities for true market advantage go unrealized.

 

And the talented exit in droves to find opportunities that support their vision of a company in which departments and divisions interact and engage for a common goal of revenue excellence.

The whole thing  looks like very similar to the Hartman's Value Index (used as Attribute index the Innermetrix combined test)... the systemiser is the same category, norturers could be the intrinsic and controllers could be the extrinsic... As there is no fourth thinking pattern at Hartman, the innovators I would classify as a sort of systemisers...

You Are What You Tweet - The New Yorker

You Are What You Tweet - The New Yorker | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
When Mark Zuckerberg, the C.E.O. of Facebook, started appearing at local haunts in San Francisco’s Mission District last year, one blog speculated that he was attempting to “rebrand himself as a Mission hipster.” It’s an apt turn of phrase, one that conveys the casual predominance of “personal branding,” the practice that Zuckerberg’s company has popularized: managing your presentation—your behavior, appearance, reputation, online persona—to stand out in your professional and personal lives. The Oxford Dictionaries Online last week added the term “selfie”—the self-portrait taken in solitude and submitted to the gaze of millions, turning each of us into his own paparazzo. Although image maintenance is nothing new, the images we’re presenting are now available online, all the time, and are presumed to meaningfully represent us. Personal branding is the subtext of all social networking: when we post vacation photos, we attest to our ability to take luxurious vacations; when we post pictures of our babies, we present ourselves as proud and caring parents; when we crack wise about current events, we demonstrate our wit, relevance, and political leanings.

Nicolas Nassim Taleb's example...

Nicolas Nassim Taleb's example... | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Taleb writes (on Facebook BTW):

 

“LEARNING TO DO NOTHING (Idleness as a BS detector/cleaner) - At the start of this year I resolved to do "nothing except if it felt like a hobby" i.e., "satisfy interests while providing entertainment value with zero pressure, no schedule and no feeling of duty". The rule is to wake up with the aim to "do nothing", have nothing scheduled and avoid the usual guilt (or shame) encountered by most when "wasting time" , have minimum committments and talk to NO journalist. Of course, cut everything unpleasant, no matter what the potential gain. Treat everything (including mathematics) the way a great-uncle of mine who was a man of leisure treated his afternoon game of bridge: intellectual concentration as entertainment.

RESULT: 12 academic papers (9 accepted so far), finished a book (Silent Risk)--well, almost, wrote 100 aphorisms, ate 2 Beijing ducks, learned to typeset books as a self-standing publisher, found 4 investments ... and this is 3/4 of the year.

NOTE: To do things make sure you have no assistant. They drag you into doing things for the sake of "work".”

Personal Branding Represents Your Distinction And Responsibility As A Leader

Personal Branding Represents Your Distinction And Responsibility As A Leader | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Managing your leadership career is much like managing your stock portfolio. You must continuously decide on how to make your personal brand more valuable by knowing what skill-sets, capabilities and aptitudes to invest in and which not to – throughout the course of your career. The ebbs and flows of your leadership career require you to make important choices about how to give your personal brand value; equally, you must be aware of how your personal brand translates into and delivers tangible and measureable ROI to those whom you serve. Every day, every week, and every month – you must be mindful about how your personal brand as a leader can elevate your relevancy, impact and influence – and it’s your responsibility to define its distinction before someone else does.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

See beyond your job title and your job description to become a real leader... And you know what, this might be also more interesting, more adventurous than your work life so far... try it... not only for the others, for the company but - why not on the first place - for yourself...:-)))
