When you’re trying to support a new behavior, talk about the safe language you and your colleagues can use to support one another.  Have a laugh together, rather than at each other’s expense.

Rim Riahi's curator insight, September 10, 2013 10:15 PM

Humor can be a terrific help in lessening tension in a given situation.  This is a good example--and a good story.

Forgiving: The Hidden Dimension of Exceptional Leadership

Forgiving: The Hidden Dimension of Exceptional Leadership | Developing Talent by Emotional and Social Intelligence | Scoop.it

This article explores the concept of forgiveness in the context of leadership, and suggests that forgiveness is one of the keys that distinguish mediocre or ineffective leadership from the exceptional. Below, the authors analyse the forgiving personality through a psychodynamic lens, and discuss how truly transformational leaders use forgiveness to advance societies, organisations and individuals.

Sílvia Montserrat's insight:

"The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong’."

Helena Gonçalves's curator insight, October 9, 2013 1:26 AM

Leaders have such an important effect on many people’s lives that their lack of forgiveness can create a climate where anger, bitterness and animosity prevent a whole organisation, society or nation from being creative, learning, growing and developing their full potential.

Leadership (like it’s cousinstewardship, for example) isn’t a role but a process – specifically a process of influence; meaning those you choose to lead must also choose to be led — and choose you, in particular, to lead them.

This is a terrifically smart article that looks at intelligence from eight different perspectives--including an emotional perspective.   

Emotions can make us
smarter. We sometimes give short shrift to emotions when we’re talking
about academic success, but the science of learning is demonstrating
that our emotional state represents a crucial internal situation that
influences how intelligently we think and act. - See more at: http://www.creativitypost.com/psychology/eight_ways_of_looking_at_intelligence#sthash.1eEFYi8e.cg7RR0Du.dpuf

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings | Developing Talent by Emotional and Social Intelligence | Scoop.it

"Thoughtful cognitive neuroscientists such as Rex Jung, Darya Zabelina, Andreas Fink, John Kounios, Mark Beeman, Kalina Christoff, Oshin Vartanian, Jeremy Gray, Hikaru Takeuchi and others are on the forefront of investigating what actually happens in the brain during the creative process. And their findings are overturning conventional notions surrounding the neuroscience of creativity.

 

The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction is not the right one when it comes to understanding how creativity is implemented in the brain. Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.

 

Instead, the entire creative process– from the initial burst of inspiration to the final polished product– consists of many interacting cognitive processes and emotions. Depending on the stage of the creative process, and what you’re actually attempting to create, different brain regions are recruited to handle the task."

Developing empathy helps develop your business

Empathy is the ability to sense and understand the feelings of others. When you understand others’ frustrations, their needs, and the way they think, you increase your connection to them and you gain an understanding of many things that are important to your business.

 

Empathy allows us to gain competitive intelligence. By putting ourselves into the shoes of customers and listening to what they feel, we begin to gain an understanding of how to design products and services that better meet their needs.

It's the nature of business to create panic and chaos.

Rather than slow down on a product release or turn down a customer or two until processes are ready, decisions are made that tax resources and send teams into a frenzy.

If you were able to maintain a level of self-confidence that no circumstance could shake, what would you be doing differently?  Just imagine the things you would accomplish if you were confident that you COULD.

This kind of confidence comes from positive self-imaging, and it is something that you can proactively build for yourself.  It doesn’t happen while you wait passively.  When you leave it up to external factors, you build your self-confidence on sandy ground.  What you need is a rock-solid foundation, and this only comes from building it from within.
