How to make stress your friend

How to make stress your friend | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.
Anne Egros's insight:

A positive belief about stress makes your body react  by producing oxytocin, a hormone that encourages your social behavior, either by helping others or seeking help from others.

Intercultural Communication at Work

Intercultural Communication at Work | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
In this globalised world, communicating in intercultural contexts is not as easy as it may seem...
Anne Egros's insight:

When you don't understand someone's behavior in intercultural context, ask questions, don't guess through your own perception.

 

Be aware of your own cultural bias is a good start then listen to other people and notice similarities or differences on how messages are perceived and understood by making sure there is no misinterpretation either in words, voice tone or body language.

 

Good demonstration at the end of this article using Anglo-Dutch Translation Guide.

Understanding Russia Today

Understanding Russia Today | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

Article from Sean Dubberke is director, intercultural programs for RW3 CultureWizard, New York, NY

Anne Egros's insight:

There are very few good and accurate  articles about dealing and doing business with Russians in the 21st century and this article is one of them.. However, it was written in 2011 before the reelection of president Vladimir Putin which has a great impact on the way Russia is perceived outside Russia via its leader.

 

With the Sochi 2014 Olympic Games I have seen so much misunderstandings about Russia and was surprised that the fear and hate of the Russians are still very present in the western mentalities for people over 40 who was born before or during the Soviet Union.


Although I would not say that working with Russians is easy, I really enjoy the dynamism and enthusiasm of most people I meet in Moscow, especially women entrepreneurs, that can largely compensate the challenges of dealing with intercultural differences.

How Referral Key's Spammy Practice Embarrassed Pollyanna

How Referral Key's Spammy Practice Embarrassed Pollyanna | Global Leaders | Scoop.it

  It’s what networking is supposed to be all about. A colleague sends you an email asking if you are still looking for clients and invites you to join his or her business network. 

Anne Egros's insight:

This blog describes exactly what happened to me two days ago with my Linkedin network.

 

I feel embarrassed , annoyed and then ashamed

 

Did that happen to you too with programs spamming your personal email lists ? What did you do ?

 

On the positive side (the Pollyanna attitude), now I will be more cautious and just Google any new tool I am willing to try to learn about other users 'stories.

Within an intercultural context, who has the “right” interpretation?
Anne Egros's insight:

"How you interpret what is being said or written has been culturally conditioned"  


True but personal experiences with people from other cultures shape your interpretation of words and body language too.

Clare McNamara's curator insight, March 18, 4:32 AM

It's true, translating a message across cultures can be tricky to begin with, but  takes practice but limiting your interpretations to content and ignoring tone, body language and form, always pays off.

Find the Coaching in Criticism

Find the Coaching in Criticism | Global Leaders | Scoop.it
Business management magazine, blogs, case studies, articles, books, and webinars from Harvard Business Review, addressing today's topics and challenges in business management.
Anne Egros's insight:

Learnings from the article:


What makes receiving feedback so hard? The process strikes at the tension between two core human needs—the need to learn and grow, and the need to be accepted just the way you are. As a result, even a seemingly benign suggestion can leave you feeling angry, anxious, badly treated, or profoundly threatened. A hedge such as “Don’t take this personally” does nothing to soften the blow.


The skills needed to receive feedback well are distinct and learnable. They include being able to identify and manage the emotions triggered by the feedback and extract value from criticism even when it’s poorly delivered.


Six Steps to Becoming a Better Receiver


1. Know your tendencies


2. Disentangle the “what” from the “who”


3. Sort toward coaching

 

4. Unpack the feedback

 

5. Ask for just one thing

 

6. Engage in small experiments

 

After you’ve worked to solicit and understand feedback, it may still be hard to discern which bits of advice will help you and which ones won’t. We suggest designing small experiments to find out. Even though you may doubt that a suggestion will be useful, if the downside risk is small and the upside potential is large, it’s worth a try.
