Leadership and Revelry by Greg Richardson

Leadership and Revelry by Greg Richardson | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
I believe in the value of leadership and the power of revelry.

Leaders develop our ability to bring out our truest, best selves. They are able to recognize and appreciate who we are, and who we can be. Good leaders can perceive how our abilities fit with their own values, and how we can work together well. Great leaders have vision that sees us in ways we may never have seen ourselves.

 

They help us celebrate our true selves.

How to Deliver Critical Feedback that Sticks

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 5, 2012 6:19 AM


Business owners often struggle when it comes to delivering critical feedback to an employee, especially when aspects of the employees performance, leave much to be desired.


Unfortunately, if a business owner or manager wants their critical feedback to be accepted by the employee, the feedback must be direct and not be delivered as hints or polite requests for certain changes to take place.


This good article, suggests employees need to be told upfront what exactly the relevant issue is, and it then suggests three steps to take to ensure that the critical feedback is received appropriately and the message sinks in in a way that will result in the requested outcomes.


Bond Beebe Accountants & Advisors's curator insight, December 18, 2012 8:29 AM

Providing effective feedback is an essential skill for managers at every level.  As this piece suggests, offering concrete, detailed direction is key to employee success.

 

ThinDifference's curator insight, March 10, 2013 9:47 AM

Great three step way to deliver feedback. We need to me more intentional in our feedback so all involved get better in what we do.

A Pivotal Message for Women Leaders About Our Feminine Side

A Pivotal Message for Women Leaders About Our Feminine Side | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

My business partner recently brought to my attention a video of Jane Goodall speaking about the power of female characteristics (posted below). I think Jane’s message is pivotal for women: 

 

What I have been saddened by very often is that some of the women who’ve been leaders in the women’s movement…they tried to get out there into these traditionally male jobs by being more male than the males. And that’s unfortunate, really unfortunate.
I can see why it happened, but I think the qualities women can bring into our society, you know…we are by nature, probably instinctively, more nurturing, compassionate, we’re good at finding solutions that don’t involve physical power … So if we can take those out into society it should be making a better world.

Link Between Anger and Anxiety?

Link Between Anger and Anxiety? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Shaan White's curator insight, October 6, 2014 9:59 AM

In therapy we often like to complicate things. When we refer to the chart of emotions it becomes clear why anger and anxiety are intertwined. In fact not just anger, any negative state can affect anxiety and compound the experience of the sufferer. The solution to being anxiety free is having a clear simple approach of letting go of the destructive feelings and emotions and training our minds to focus on the solution (Goal) that we want.

Empathetic Doctors Increase Patient Pain Tolerance

Empathetic Doctors Increase Patient Pain Tolerance | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Researchers from Michigan State University (MSU) recently revealed that doctors who have empathy could help increase their patients’ pain tolerance.

 

In particular, the findings of the study looked at how the brain changes to respond to stress and found that certain shifts in the brain result in elevated pain tolerance. The medical researchers discovered that doctors who listened attentively to their patients could help them have better health outcomes. However, the team of investigators is not entirely sure about the mechanism that causes this reaction.
