7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered

7 Valuable Skills That Top Leaders and High Achievers Have Mastered | Coaching | Scoop.it
1. A well-developed personal philosophy

Successful leaders know what their philosophy is; they understand their thinking and their reasoning. A clear philosophy allows you to set your expectations and articulate your definition of success so you can set a clear path to your goals. It prepares you for an extraordinary destiny.

2. Undeniable persistence

Edison failed 2,000 times before he discovered electricity. John Chambers overcame dyslexia to build Cisco. People who are successful never quit, and people who succeed never give up. When failure is never an option, you don't give up. You find another contact, another way, another point of entry, and you keep trying until you accomplish what you have set out to do. Persistence means picking yourself up every day and going after what you want without allowing anything to get in your way.

8 Personal Qualities for Success: A Coach’s Perspective

8 Personal Qualities for Success: A Coach’s Perspective | Coaching | Scoop.it
As someone who has been coaching people for 26 years, I am often asked what the key to success is—and, surprisingly, whether luck plays a role. I’ll take that last part first.

Why Every CEO Needs a Coach

Why Every CEO Needs a Coach | Coaching | Scoop.it
Executive coaches perform key function for CEOs

Why should CEOs have coaches now? Previous generations managed without them. Today’s president or CEO faces more pressures than ever. Business leaders are dealing with rapidly changing markets, technologies and workforces, increased financial and legal scrutiny . . . and more. Top executives who feel that they can handle it all by themselves are more likely to burn out, make poor decisions or make no decisions – potentially resulting in significant loss of opportunities, human resources and financial resources. The job of CEO is unique from several perspectives: No one else needs to hear the truth more, and gets it less from employees; no one else is the focus of criticism when things go wrong; no one else is the final decision maker on difficult and often lose-lose decisions; and finally, no one else enjoys the almost hero-celebrity status and rewards.

The Procrastination Doom Loop - and How to Break It

The Procrastination Doom Loop - and How to Break It | Coaching | Scoop.it

When scientists have studied procrastination, they've typically focused on how people are miserable at weighing costs and benefits across time.


In the last few years, however, scientists have begun to think that procrastination might have less to do with time than emotion. Procrastination "really has nothing to do with time-management,” Joseph Ferrari, a professor of psychology at DePaul University, told Psychological Science. “To tell the chronic procrastinator to just do it would be like saying to a clinically depressed person, cheer up.”

The 12 cognitive biases that prevent you from being rational

The 12 cognitive biases that prevent you from being rational | Coaching | Scoop.it
The human brain is capable of 1016 processes per second, which makes it far more powerful than any computer currently in existence. But that doesn't mean our brains don't have major limitations. The lowly calculator can do math thousands of times better than we can, and our memories are often less than useless — plus, we're subject to cognitive biases, those annoying glitches in our thinking that cause us to make questionable decisions and reach erroneous conclusions. Here are a dozen of the most common and pernicious cognitive biases that you need to know about.

Before we start, it's important to distinguish between cognitive biases and logical fallacies. A logical fallacy is an error in logical argumentation (e.g. ad hominem attacks, slippery slopes, circular arguments, appeal to force, etc.). A cognitive bias, on the other hand, is a genuine deficiency or limitation in our thinking — a flaw in judgment that arises from errors of memory, social attribution, and miscalculations (such as statistical errors or a false sense of probability).

Some social psychologists believe our cognitive biases help us process information more efficiently, especially in dangerous situations. Still, they lead us to make grave mistakes. We may be prone to such errors in judgment, but at least we can be aware of them. Here are some important ones to keep in mind.

The Real Power of Generosity

The Real Power of Generosity | Coaching | Scoop.it

Generosity is the tissue that connects us to ourselves, to others, and to life itself. And it’s a practice — one that has meaningful benefits to our mental and physical health, as well as our relationships with others.



Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Lisa McCarthy's insight:

Generosity is more than just “giving up.” Generosity generates its power from the gesture of letting go. Being able to give to others shows us our ability to let go of attachments that otherwise can limit our beliefs and our experiences.
