Brain Can't Empathize And Analyze At Same Time, New Study

Brain Can't Empathize And Analyze At Same Time, New Study | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Scientists have discovered that the brain circuits we engage when we think about social matters, such as considering other people's views, or moral issues, inhibit the circuits that we use when we think about inanimate, analytical things, such as working on a physics problem or making sure the numbers add up when we balance our budget. And they say, the same happens the other way around: the analytic brain network inhibits the social network.

What Makes a Great Life and Career Mentor?

What Makes a Great Life and Career Mentor? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

"In the midst of preparing a plan for my life and career journey, I knew I needed a mentor. Someone who held high-level positions in the PR industry, to advise me on higher education, skill-development and to assist me in properly planning my career."

 

"But what should one look for in a mentor?"

 

"The best mentor is someone who provides professional knowledge and expertise about the career field, and answers questions about a job and/or education. A mentor can go as far as helping the mentee see past a specific problem or job issue and forms a clear vision to help achieve their career goals."

 

"The first step in finding the right mentor is realizing who you are and what you aspire to become. You will also see there are many types of mentors... My suggestion is to seek out all mentoring possibilities!"

 

"From my experience, an outstanding mentor possesses 10 highly desirable qualities:"

The Heart Grows Smarter - Emotional Intelligence Critical to Leading a Contented Life.

The Heart Grows Smarter - Emotional Intelligence Critical to Leading a Contented Life. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
A study that has followed a set of men from 1938 to the present time confirms that emotional intelligence is critical to leading a contented life.

 

But as this study ... progressed, the power of relationships became clear. The men who grew up in homes with warm parents were much more likely to become first lieutenants and majors in World War II. The men who grew up in cold, barren homes were much more likely to finish the war as privates...

 

In case after case, the magic formula is capacity for intimacy combined with persistence, discipline, order and dependability. The men who could be affectionate about people and organized about things had very enjoyable lives.

Leadership & Introspection

Leadership & Introspection | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

What makes introspection an imperative part of a leader’s routine?

 

Taking time to know oneself through self-reflection opens a fresh perspective, enhancing one’s clarity and focus. With these gifts one can continuously look for ways to enhance effectiveness and pave pathways to achievement.

 

It is possible to be moving towards erroneous goals or targets, and reflection invites a healthy reassessment. Operating from knowledge of one’s talents and how to utilize personal skills will leverage one’s ability to assist others to perform effectively as well.

 

To go anywhere the first question is “Where am I?” With a calm and peaceful mind vision is enhanced. Strong vision leads to decisions that are sounder. With inner clarity one is able to see the interconnected nature of the world and understand the results of choices, more accurately predicting impact. Predicting impact equals better results.

1 Out of Every 2 Managers Is Terrible at Accountability

1 Out of Every 2 Managers Is Terrible at Accountability | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Out of all the things we expect of leaders — taking charge, setting strategy, empowering people, driving execution, you name it — what one single behavior would you guess is most often neglected or avoided among executives? Seeing the big picture? Nope. Delegating? Nope. Mapping out detailed project plans? Nope. Although many upper-level managers don't do these things enough, by far and away the single-most shirked responsibility of executives is holding people accountable. No matter how tough a game they may talk about performance, when it comes to holding people's feet to the fire, leaders step back from the heat.

 

In Harvard's database of more than 5,400 upper-level managers from the US, Europe, Latin America, and Asia-Pacific gathered since 2010, 46% are rated "too little" on the item, "Holds people accountable — firm when they don't deliver."

If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?

If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Raghunathan, an associate professor of marketing at the McCombs School of Business, has more than a passing interest in happiness. “It’s my passion; it’s my calling,” Raghunathan said of the topic, which was the focus of his Texas Enterprise Speaker Series talk, "If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Happy?” on Nov. 1.

 

He’s not the only one interested in being happy. “It seems like everybody acknowledges that happiness is very, very important,” Raghunathan said, pointing to the long list of writings on the topic, dating back to Greek philosopher Aristotle’s time onward. Additionally, polls show that along with health, good relationships, and career success, “happiness always emerges as one of the top goals” among those surveyed, Raghunathan said.

Why Obama Won: The Empathy Factor

Why Obama Won: The Empathy Factor | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
When we voted for President Obama, what were we motivated by?

 

Yet again, this was a function of the Republican Party's failure to be empathic. They could not imagine why those at the margins -- women, people of color, gays and lesbians, young people and immigrants -- would not care foremost about taxes or about protecting their own wealth. They could not understand why women would object to outlawing abortion or why anyone would support government programs for children or the poor. They could not believe that despite the long lines, ID requirements and other tactics to impede voting that the most marginalized would make it a priority to cast a ballot.

9 characteristics of daring leadership

9 characteristics of daring leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Secure Base Leaders mix nine characteristics to provide just the right amount of safety and encourage just the right amount of risk.

 

Secure Base Leaders engage in a high level of caring and also encourage a high level of daring. In this way, both the leader and their followers can reach the highest levels of performance and have the most positive impact on others. We call that place the “sweet spot” of leadership. This sweet spot is of particular relevance to organizations focused on learning, innovation and change.

 

Unfortunately, we can’t give you a precise recipe for the sweet spot. Secure Base Leaders mix together nine characteristics in just the right way, at just the right time, to provide just the right amount of safety and encourage just the right amount of risk. Even though Secure Base Leadership is more of an art that responds to the sensitivities at hand than a science based on codified behavior, the behaviors of Secure Base Leaders are clear, practical and learnable.

 

In fact, you may already be exhibiting some of these:

Brain study provides new insight into why haste makes waste

Brain study provides new insight into why haste makes waste | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

A new study demonstrates how the brain follows Ben Franklin’s famous dictum, “Take time for all things: great haste makes great waste.”

 

The research – conducted by Research Assistant Professor Richard Heitz and Jeffrey Schall, Ingram Professor of Neuroscience, at Vanderbilt University – has found that the brain actually switches into a special mode when pushed to make rapid decisions.

The study was published Nov. 7 in the journal Neuron.


“What this means is that identical information presented to the brain is analyzed differently under speed stress than under accuracy stress,” Schall said.

 

These unexpected results are controversial and important because they are at odds with currently accepted mathematical models of decision making, which are being used to understand psychiatric and neurological disorders. For example, people with certain types of brain damage seem to get stuck in a hasty, impulsive mode of deciding, and the models provide some indication for how this might happen mechanically in the brain.
