Bill Palladino - MLUI's curator insight, March 6, 2013 2:52 PM

So earlier this week my step-son had a volleyball game.  The refs made a few difficult calls, mostly relaxing the rules a bit.  The boy is ten, and this is thought of as a learning league.

After the game however, he came home rather upset and suggested that the team lost the game "because the refs were terrible."  You can imagine the parental manuveuring that ensued.  Sportsmanship and all of it's subtle variants were the topic at the dinner table and beyond.

In business, this is an unusual request.  Aren't we, after all, out to beat the other guy?  And isn't it part of fair-play to kick him when he's down?  Well, maybe not.  Here's a story from CBS Moneywatch that takes a look at what's appropriate sportsman-like behavior for the business athlete.

Love #1. It is the power of the stories we tell ourselves that determine who we become.

 

"1. Remember self-doubt is a story.

As Davidson said, thinking you’re not good at something doesn’t make it true. Her art teacher triggered her self-doubt, but it was the stories spinning in Davidson’s mind that stopped her from creating. And these disempowering tales were clearly distorted."

donhornsby's curator insight, March 6, 2013 10:29 AM

The article contains a constructive approach when you are experiencing the weight of criticism.

 

(From the article): One of the worst things you can do is to focus on your emotions. If you’re like me, your emotions can derail you. Seriously, you can lose an hour – even a day – of productivity because someone’s comments stung you.

 

If you start with your emotions, you’ll get stuck in them. So after the initial deflation, jump as quickly as you can into a more constructive pattern.

Here’s the one I try to follow.

Every once in a while special employees come along that just really seem to get it. They drive the entire company forward in ways that were unimaginable. Advancement and reward is never an issue for these rock stars because they understand the power of cause and effect, and only a worthy company can retain them and afford them.
