(From the article): Say it a different way if you’re not understood. If the listener seems confused, don’t just repeat your message. Explain it in a different way – provide additional information, background information or use different words.

It’s time to take control of the programming of negative automatic self-talk. Let your brain search its files for a more positive, constructive, and useful answer.

Being able to choose something new outside of past programming means being able to see with new eyes and hear with new ears. Changing around some of the people, places and things exposes you to different aspects of self that lie just below the surface of doing things the same way over and over.

A Guide To Practical Contentment, by Leo Babauta

A Guide To Practical Contentment, by Leo Babauta | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
We start out in life thinking that we're awesome. We can dance in public as 5-year-olds and not care what others think of us. By the time we're adults, that's driven out of us. We doubt, judge, and criticize ourselves as we strive for happiness.

 

A lot of people search for ways to find happiness, but I’ve found the idea of contentment to be more important than happiness.
Why contentment over happiness? A couple of important reasons:

Happiness can go up or down each day (or moment), but contentment is something more stable.
We tend to seek to increase happiness by adding things (food, excitement, a warm bath, time with a loved one) but contentment is a skill that allows you to subtract things and still be content.

Contentment can actually be a good place to start as you make changes (changes and contentment might seem paradoxical to some, but hear me out).

More hype has been piled on Generation Y, or better known as Millennials. We are building layers to insulate rather than removing layers to engage. This needs to be our call-to-action. Millennials, Gen X, Boomers, and Silent Generation alike but between two generations. We need to cross the gap and lead anew!

It is time to build trust.

Rethinking the Work of Leadership

Rethinking the Work of Leadership | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

Here we are in 2013 with organizational leadership models that continue to deny the social nature of organizations and wallow in inertia.

 

Our leadership practices remain authoritative. People are disengaged, distrusting and perhaps even disenfranchised.

If it were only so in the land of Dilbert.  Unfortunately this is pervasive in many organizations - lack of trust, lack of sharing knowledge and no collaboration all go hand in hand and are together the tools of a failure to innovate.

Wonderul Scoop Kenneth!  I am currently working on understanding inclusion by exploring exclusion and this is absolutely perfect!  

 

While we may have a "diverse" employee base"  if we have authoritative and distrusting cultures, it is impossible to have inclusion!
