How Rejection Breeds Creativity

How Rejection Breeds Creativity | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
With a few small changes in your mindset, you can turn rejection into a dramatic boost for your motivation and focus.

 

Being rejected is often a statement that you (or your ideas) are too far from the current mainstream to be considered safe or comfortable. This could actually be a good thing. You're ahead of your time. While the group or client may not believe they need you right away, the world probably does. If you're too far from the mainstream, you could be the one pushing progress forward.

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong

3 Things Every Great Leader Gets Wrong | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Think you're a great leader? Make sure you aren't guilty of one of these three reality-distorting traits.

 

Every great leader possesses a degree of what Walter Isaacson (in his biography of Steve Jobs) describes as "an ability to distort reality."

 

What Isaacson meant is that Jobs forced his will on Apple, often pushing people to create things they never thought possible--a powerful asset in any leader.

 

But that reality distortion effect works both ways. It also means that every leader, to a greater or lesser degree, distorts the reality around themselves, leading to tensions, inconsistency, and bad decisions.

 

There are two reasons why leaders who live in a bubble become so dangerous to themselves and those they lead.

Leadership: Is Too Much Expected of Me?

Leadership: Is Too Much Expected of Me? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
 In order to succeed, we need to slow it down. We need to expect less from ourselves and be okay with it. We need to help others see that less is more.  

 

Business is not local or national any more, but worldwide. The internet and social media keeps us connected constantly. Nothing is private and most of us are dancing through hoops to keep up with the demand. 
 
So if too much is expected of us, I say: 

Stop. 

Get off the treadmill. 

Do less. 

Decrease the sound.

The Reputation Economy Is Coming: Here's What You Need To Know To Start Preparing For It

The Reputation Economy Is Coming: Here's What You Need To Know To Start Preparing For It | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

 

Robin Good: If you are interested in learning what the "reputation economy" is all about and why it will trump traditional approaches to marketing in the next few years, I highly recommend reading this Wired feature article.

 

In it you will find not only lots of good information on what measuring reputation really means, and how reputation may be used in the near future, but you will also get a shortlist of the key companies moving in this space and a simple ten-step reputation plan that you can use to start steering in the right direction.

 

Here a few excerpts from it:

 

"When asked for the sources upon which a user's trustworthiness is based, reputation startups list the usual suspects -- LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter -- but refuse to go further, saying that the algorithm is proprietary.

 

For these trust-validation services to become credible they're going to need to differentiate their products from those offered by companies such as PeerIndex, Kred and Klout, which collect digital information from different social-media sources.

 

Their metrics -- who I "follow", who "follows" me, who I know professionally, where I check in, what I chat about -- are measuring social influence, not reputation.

 

"Influence measures your ability to drag someone into action," says Joe Fernandez, cofounder of San Francisco-based Klout (wired 08.12). "Reputation is an indicator of whether a person is good or bad and, ultimately, are they trustworthy?"

 

 

 

"...reputation is largely contextual, so it's tricky to transport it to other situations. Sure, you might be an impeccable Airbnb host, but does that mean I would trust you with my car?"

 

 

"...Many of the ventures starting to make strides in the reputation economy are measuring different dimensions of reputation.

 

On Stack Overflow, for instance, reputation is a measure of knowledge; on Airbnb it's a measure of trust; on Wonga it's a measure of propensity to pay; on Klout and PeerIndex it's a measure of influence."

 

 

"The most basic level is verification of your true identity -- is this person a real person? Are they are who they say they are?

 

It's also foreseeable that data giving a good indicator of character, such as reliability and helpfulness, in one marketplace is a baseline of how you will behave in another marketplace.

 

Do we do what we say we are going to do? How well do we respect another person's property? Can we be trusted to pay on time?"

 

 

Valuable read. Recommended. 9/10
