Leaders stumble when they are paying too much attention to their internal chatter and allowing it to sap important cognitive resources that could be put to better use.

The Chorus to Remember

Music can make a huge difference in your workday. Feel free to crank up the volume if noise has you working like a snail, you've got a case of the Monday's, or you've got something mundane or familiar to do. Ideally, though, make your playlists out of songs you already know, and if your tasks involve any sort of linguistic processing, focus on lyric-free options. Lastly, if you have something to learn, pump up your mood with music before you get started.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, July 23, 2016 5:12 AM

Classical or instrumental music enhances mental performance more than music with lyrics. Music can make rote or routine tasks (think folding laundry or filing papers) less boring and more enjoyable. Runners who listen to music go faster. But when you need to give learning and remembering your full attention, silence is golden

3 Ways to Create a Deeper Connection at Work

3 Ways to Create a Deeper Connection at Work | Engaging Staff to Excel | Scoop.it

You have to put yourself out there if you want to create an authentic connection with people.

Sharing your Leadership Point of View is one of the most powerful ways to accomplish that, according to coaching expert Joni Wickline.

In the August issue of Blanchard Ignite, Wickline describes a Leadership Point of View as a story about“…the people and events that have shaped who you are. It also speaks to your values, your beliefs, and what drives you as a leader.”

For many, creating a Leadership Point of View (LPOV) is an emotional journey. Wickline says a lot of leaders play it safe when first given the chance to share.

The Importance of Promoting Personal Growth in Your Employees

The Importance of Promoting Personal Growth in Your Employees | Engaging Staff to Excel | Scoop.it

Some leaders believe that helping employees achieve professional growth will simultaneously help them grow in their personal lives as well. In reality, however, this is a misconception that will send the wrong message to a staff. While professional growth and personal growth are both equally crucial to encourage; it’s important to draw a clear distinction between the two. Professional growth opportunities help employees excel at their jobs, while personal growth opportunities help employees find more balance and fulfillment in their everyday lives.

55 Inspiring Quotes That Show the Importance of Emotional Intelligence

55 Inspiring Quotes That Show the Importance of Emotional Intelligence | Engaging Staff to Excel | Scoop.it

Emotional intelligence can be the most potent weapon in our armory. It helps boost our self-awareness, self-control, motivation, empathy, and social skills, all of which help us become much better leaders.

 

Here are 55 quotes to remind us of the power and importance of emotional intelligence and why we should focus on developing it further.

 

If your emotional abilities aren't in hand, if you don't have self-awareness, if you are not able to manage your distressing emotions, if you can't have empathy and have effective relationships, then no matter how smart you are, you are not going to get very far. -Daniel Goleman75 percent of careers are derailed for reasons related to emotional competencies, including inability to handle interpersonal problems; unsatisfactory team leadership during times of difficulty or conflict; or inability to adapt to change or elicit trust.  -Center for Creative LeadershipWhen dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotion. -Dale Carnegie
