Monster Loyalty: Savvy Business Tips From Lady Gaga to You | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
An interesting look at business tips that can be gleaned from Lady Gaga. Written by Jackie Huba, this is an in-depth review of this "Gaga book."
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Learn from anywhere, from anyone you can... why not from Lady Gaga?! (disclaimer: I'm not part of her "one-percenters"!) the point is to spend your energy for your superfans, your little monsters, your "one-percenters"... basically that's the lesson... it's different from anybody's else (unless the case of Justin Bieber...), it's very much based on the social media... enterpreneurs, it's your turn, use this experience, too...

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

A cyclist metaphor for showing that we are always able to make more... Interesting point, though I would handle it with a little bit of salt... Why? It's a good metaphor for those who are working - for whatever reason, e.g. they haven't found their FLOW-producing activity - on a lowest level of performance... but I would be careful to suggest this as a useful metaphor to those who already working hard, say, on their 120 to 150% level... so, take care, in which group you are feeling yourself...

Accepter les signes de reconnaissance ou les réclamer

Accepter les signes de reconnaissance ou les réclamer | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Le manque de reconnaissance est fréquent en entreprise. Vous ne recevez pas de gratitude ni de remerciements? N'hésitez pas à aller les chercher. Apprenez aussi à donner des feed-backs réguliers à votre équipe.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

What to do when you are told you were extra/genius/great? Take it as it is with grace, e.g. with a "you're welcome"... don't try to minimize it ("oh, it was nothing", etc)... another issue is whether is it not more useful to say: "what ou have just done in this project at the end phase, helping the others not to lose their focus was very useful tuo the team" instead of simply labelling somebody great, extra, etc. But a little bit inadequate praise like the first one is still much much better than saying nothing...

Leadership: What We Don’t Know We Don't Know

Leadership: What We Don’t Know We Don't Know | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
I believe that learning is stronger than knowledge, that perception is more potent than reality, that vision is more powerful than actuality. I see learning taking place at three separate levels: What we know we know.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

It made me thinking... the "what we know we don't know" is the "Socrates-stage" (for me), it's also very important for a leader for this is the basis of effective empowerment, to know that we together reach farther than me alone... also, that is the IMHO stage where we accept our limits... also, for me important is the "we don't know that we know" stage for this is our real embedded talent and most probably that's the base/talent of the leader why he is a leader...:)))

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Emphasizing Covey's 7 habits' time-management quadrant system (you know, this urgent-important, not-urgent-not important,etc.)... I just think... first thing first: before making any priority-sorting just check whether the items/tasks/etc. are together not taking more time than available... i.e. check those items to be deleted, forgotten, got rid off... do it til the remaining items are coverable by the time available... then, you can use the quadrant system for prioritizing... if you stick to more items than doable in the time available your prioritizing exercise will be a very difficult one...
