Will You Ever Be Taken Seriously?

How to exude executive gravitas -- no matter your age.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

curated to GIBS Bog Blog, July  -  


"Mental conditioning. A key factor to conveying confidence is first believing that you belong. . . . "What would be lost if you were not at the table?" 

Technical conditioning. Feeling intimidated by more senior individuals often leads to one of two outcomes: either you overcompensate by aggressively advocating your point of view and emphasizing your accomplishments or you undermine yourself by hesitating in your responses and acquiescing to others. Needless to say, neither is an effective strategy. . To overcome these blunders, you must technically prepare yourself by mastering basic communication techniques. Chief among these techniques is the ability to helicopter up and to speak from the executives' perspective, taking into account their issues, agenda, and upcoming decisions. Another is the ability to communicate value in terms of what you bring to the table and the results of your work (rather than the process).

Physical conditioning. Which of your physical attributes negatively impacts your executive presence? The culprits are often dress, voice, and posture."

What Is Nostalgia Good For? Quite a Bit, Research Shows

What Is Nostalgia Good For? Quite a Bit, Research Shows | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Nostalgia, long considered a disorder, is now recognized to counteract loneliness, boredom and anxiety — making life seem more meaningful and death less frightening.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

curated to GIBS Bog Blog, July - 


"After a decade of study, nostalgia isn’t what it used to be — it’s looking a lot better.  Nostalgia has been shown to counteract loneliness, boredom and anxiety. It makes people more generous to strangers and more tolerant of outsiders. Couples feel closer and look happier when they’re sharing nostalgic memories. On cold days, or in cold rooms, people use nostalgia to literally feel warmer.


Nostalgia does have its painful side — it’s a bittersweet emotion — but the net effect is to make life seem more meaningful and death less frightening. When people speak wistfully of the past, they typically become more optimistic and inspired about the future.  Nostalgia makes us a bit more human,” Dr. Sedikides says. He considers the first great nostalgist to be Odysseus, an itinerant who used memories of his family and home to get through hard times, but Dr. Sedikides emphasizes that nostalgia is not the same as homesickness. It’s not just for those away from home, and it’s not a sickness, despite its historical reputation."

Rich Countries Are Creating More Jobs by Creating Worse Jobs

Rich Countries Are Creating More Jobs by Creating Worse Jobs | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it
Welcome to the recovery?
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

curated to GIBS Bog Blog, July -


"Worth noting: for most advanced economies, the new jobs being created are of lower quality, with the exceptions of countries like South Korea, Norway and Poland. The United States has fewer jobs, but is creating better ones--a finding that reflects growing inequality in the U.S. The emerging markets, on the other hand, are finding it easier to create more and better jobs because they're starting from a low base. (In other words, it's easy to improve job quality in a country where most people make less than $10 a day; it's much harder in a country where the median income is $50,000 per "   GRAPH
