Your Brain Is Hooked on Being Right

Your Brain Is Hooked on Being Right | Coaching Teacher Leaders | Scoop.it
The adrenaline and dopamine rush you get from winning an argument feels good. Too good.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Wow.  Pretty amazing article.  Group dynamics get a little intense at times, for sure.  Tight teams become a family and everyone has a role.  This is not always good!  

 

In my head, I don't need to be right, I just need things to make sense.  Decisions made for  reasons that aren't pure (easier, my turn to rule, I just need to be heard, don't feel like putting forth effort) are frustrating.  That said, I know I can do a better job in this area.  

 

Some tips:

 

1. Set rules of engagement

2. Listen with empathy

3. Plan who speaks

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Learning leaders:

Welcome awkward and uncomfortable questions from underlings and outsiders. Insiders seldom put you on the spot. You sign their pay checks and impact their career.Explore the assumptions of others. Learning leaders assume the assumptions of others. Try getting in the head of someone else and defending their position. You never learn when all you do is defend what you know.Read every day.Ask, “What if?” often.Journal. Record and reflect upon what you learn.Adapt and change. Name one thing you’ve changed in the last few months. You haven’t learned till you change, regardless of what you know.Draw out thoughts and ideas from others. How is the idea-flow around you? Is your closed mind closing their mouths?
