Annette Schmeling's curator insight, December 27, 2012 5:45 PM

People who share a vision of community operate with compassion and gratitude/appreciation toward self & each other.  The strength of an individual and/or a community can be witnessed in its capacity to embrace the good within, and the belief/capacity to have something to give.

 

As we contemplate and recognize the struggles of those we serve, we see the same needs exist within us. Finding fault, fragmentation, shaming and worrying about unmet needs is more about the need of being right than giving voice to the parts of us or of our community that feel marginalized. 

Carla Goddard,Msc.D.'s curator insight, June 27, 2013 9:04 PM

Self compassion is often forgotten in society.  When one views life with self compassion their gratitude in life increases, thus setting the signature of receiving and viewing life with gratitude.

ThinDifference's curator insight, December 26, 2012 12:11 PM

"Gratitude needn't be directed at another person to hit its mark. Take just a few minutes each day to jot down things that make you thankful, from the generosity of friends to the food on your table or the right to vote. After a few weeks, people who follow this routine 'feel better about themselves, have more energy and feel more alert,' Emmons says. Feeling thankful even brings physical changes, studies show. List-keepers sleep better, exercise more and gain a general contentment that may counteract stress and contribute to overall health."

To Succeed, Forget Self-Esteem - What's important is self-compassion. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

If you look under the Self-Help heading on Amazon, you'll find roughly 5,000 books listed under the subhead Self-Esteem. The vast majority of these books aim to not only tell you why your self-esteem might be low, but to show you how to get your hands on some more of it. It's a thriving business because self-esteem is, at least in Western cultures, considered the bedrock of individual success. You can't possibly get ahead in life, the logic goes, unless you believe you are perfectly awesome...

 

A growing body of research, including new studies by Berkeley's Juliana Breines and Serena Chen, suggest that self-compassion, rather than self-esteem, may be the key to unlocking your true potential for greatness.

Chris Chan's curator insight, December 26, 2012 11:22 PM

To come up with this year’s best leadership moments, I read back through all the leadership columns I’ve written over the past year. I tried to divide them between lists of the best and the worst moments, and sadly, this ’best’ list was far shorter.

 

It’s too bad—but at the same time, entirely expected—that role-model moments and instances of leadership done right are so few and far between. In a year that brought us the mud-slinging of a presidential election, a long list of corporate scandals and fallen leaders, and the leadership farce that the fiscal cliff negotiations have become, it’s no surprise that moments that made us proud were rarer than those that made us cringe.

 

Still, a few gave us faith in the ability of leaders to make the right call, to act in courage rather than fear, and to push us forward rather than pull us back. Here, my suggestions for the five best leadership moments of 2012:

donhornsby's curator insight, December 30, 2012 7:11 AM

(From the article): Think back to a time when you got worked up about a lack of leadership.  It could be at work, in your community or your country.  What fired you up?

 

And if it DIDN’T ignite any strong feelings in you, why not?  Are you content to live the rest of your life standing for…nothing?  What do you want your legacy to be when you die?  Again, there’s no judgement either way.  I’m just asking the question.

(From the article): Interestingly, our brains may be wired to selectively pay more attention to negative information. As a result, over-reaction and panic can often occur. However, utilizing "bad" news wisely - can become a clear contributor to future success and survival. Predictably, most of us need a plan, to wade through the emotional "muck" and reach the safe shore on the other side.
