The Joys of Culture-Switching

"Give yourself permission to culture-switch and discover more of who you
already are." ( Click to Tweet)

Most of us yearn to travel.

We love the encounter with the foreign, with everything that is different.

We love it and we fear it.

We state that we wish to taste authentic local cuisine and yet we are
thrilled the moment we find a Starbucks. 

We say we long to fully experience another culture and yet we check
ourselves into the nearest Marriott.

I celebrate these paradoxes.

5 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Relationship With Your Boss (And Your Next Boss)

5 Things You Can Do To Improve Your Relationship With Your Boss (And Your Next Boss) | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

“The most important driver of employee engagement is the relationship they have with their immediate manager,” says Piera Palazzolo, Senior Vice President of Dale Carnegie Training. She says the most successful relationships are those where bosses and employees really get to know one another.

 

“That’s different from years ago, when you were supposed to ask any personal questions. Those lines are blurred now, people want you to care about them, particularly if there’s something going on in their lives that might affect their performance.”

 

1) Find out exactly what your boss wants, and understand the pressure they’re working under.

As offices across the country close out a week marked by celebrations of "Boss's Day," now is a great time to consider your relationship with your current boss--could it be improved, or maximized in some way?

donhornsby's curator insight, Today, 8:00 AM

“A great boss changes your career. Carefully consider your boss and be prepared to take an ‘innovator’ role yourself–it’s not just up to them to reveal themselves it’s up to you to ask the questions.”

"It’s not personal, Sonny. It’s strictly business."

Sorry, Michael Corleone. You’re wrong. And so are all the corporate phonies who cite this pseudo-proverb from The Godfather as an excuse to avoid taking a genuine and substantial interest in the people around them.

Too often, we gloss over the importance of depth, sincerity and trust in our business relationships simply because we’re too busy. We think our time is better spent “getting stuff done.”

The shadow side of leadership - hubris, derailment and overdrive

The shadow side of leadership - hubris, derailment and overdrive | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Dark side characteristics are found in almost everybody’s make up. Anyone working with executives will be aware of how a tough focus can lead to unhelpful behavioural features that strains relationships.
There are, of course, steps that leaders can take to minimise the risks resulting from the dark side of leadership. Ashridge’s latest research, The Leadership Shadow, co-authored by Anthony Kasozi and myself, shows that the shadow side and the bright side of a leader’s personality are intimately connected, but can drift apart upon taking up a pressurised leadership role. These leadership shadows or ‘gremlins’ have the potential to send what’s best about an executive’s leadership over to the dark side.

Leadership Calls: Are You Truly Ready? #peopleskills - Kate Nasser | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
In the 25 years I’ve been consulting to mid-level leaders, I’ve seen an unfortunate trend. They are managing functions not leading people. Leadership calls, they get promoted, and then feel stumped on how to lead others.

The good news is, you can develop your leadership people skills. Whether new to leadership or not, when leadership calls you can be ready.

9 Different Definitions On The Meaning Of Work-Life Balance

9 Different Definitions On The Meaning Of Work-Life Balance | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Ever since technology enabled us to work around the clock if we choose to, separating work and personal life has become tough for the best of us.

If we all have 24 hours in a day to spend and we’re all putting in extra hours to build a better product, company, or brand, then how do we come up with another set of “extra” hours to “balance” our life?

The concept of balancing your work and life seems simple, but what makes “can we have it all?” so hard to answer is that work-life balance means something different to everyone. Below, nine business leaders share how they achieve their version of work-life balance.
Know What Feeds Your Energy

Jacki Zehner, CEO of Women Moving Millions

When Zehner, the first female trader to be invited into partnership at Goldman Sachs, left the firm in 2002, she thought work-life balance would get better. So far, it’s gotten worse considering the numerous boards and committee chairs she sits on. If she isn’t tending to her work responsibilities, Zehner is busy connecting people. Her biggest challenge: She doesn’t know when to “turn off” work.

Rewire Your Brain and Become a Better Leader

Rewire Your Brain and Become a Better Leader | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

It's not the carrot or the stick that causes people to follow a leader; it's whether they feel certain they will achieve what the leader says they'll achieve.

Therefore, to lead effectively, the correct question to ask yourself is: "How do I create a sense of certainty in other people?"

Once again, neuroscience has an answer. Humans have what are called "mirror neurons" in nearly every part of the brain: the premotor cortex, the supplementary motor area, the primary somatosensory cortex, and the inferior parietal cortex.

Mirror neurons cause people to imitate the behaviors they see in others. Therefore, to create certainty in others you must first create certainty in yourself.

This is why great leaders always seem so self-confident. Self-confidence is the outward manifestation of the sense of certainty that they've created within themselves, a certainty that infects everyone around them.

David Hain's insight:

The latest neuroscience research explains exactly how to inspire people to follow where you lead.

Joe Boutte's curator insight, October 17, 6:04 AM

Be a mirror!  By displaying confidence and competence, along with other leadership characteristics, we can affect how others see themselves.  Being a positive influence and example goes a long way in everyday leadership.

"Because we’re wired to channel more energy, drive and focus toward the things that matter most to us, the more we recognize the emotional meaning related to a goal, the greater the chance of a successful outcome.
