I wear jeans and cargo shorts all the time. I make rare exceptions for weddings, funerals, and similar events. I feel much better based on the research that being a nonconformist is OK.

Perfectionism, Procrastination, and Distress

Perfectionism, Procrastination, and Distress | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
A study that examines traits that predict psychological distress...

 

Excessive concerns about making mistakes, pernicious self-doubt, harsh self-criticism, impossibly high standards or expectations for performance, a strong and chronic tendency to evaluate one’s performance as not measuring up to levels expected by oneself or others - these are features of maladaptive perfectionism that predict psychological distress.

Carly Armstrong's curator insight, March 11, 4:11 PM

This article shows that perfectionism can be just as big a cause of stress as procrastination.  That the correlation between the two  is modest.  Procrastinators seem only minimally self-critical.  They have previous research as well as credible sources that they used in their research as well.

5 Workplace Lies that Create Stress

5 Workplace Lies that Create Stress | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

“How do you deal with stress?” This staple of the job interview question bank made me ask myself “where does stress come from, anyway?” The answers I found mostly pointed to dishonesty of one kind or another. Get honest with yourself and your boss and you might kiss much of your stress goodbye.

How to Manage Biased People

How to Manage Biased People | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

By now it’s generally accepted that if senior leaders suffer from cognitive biases their decisions can severely undermine company performance. Yet, leaders are not the only members of organizations that exercise poor judgment: Non-leaders are sometimes irrational too. Bearing this in mind, it is imperative that strategy-setters make explicit allowance for just how cognitively fragile their employees might be – or else they risk not fully understanding why their “perfectly rational” strategies don’t work.

Is Humility the Greatest Virtue?

Is Humility the Greatest Virtue? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

New psychological research shows a clear link between humility, as a personality characteristic, and helping, an action one does for the benefit of others.

 

Researchers discovered that humility is strongly associated with a host of positive values, including reliable friendship, good working habits and generosity. Evolutionary psychologists say there's good reason for that: "Humble people will be more helpful to the group because a trait that involves subsuming one’s own needs to those of others is only likely to be preserved in a species in which cooperation is necessary for survival." Humans, who generally require the help of others in thriving or raising children, are probably one such species.
