The 4 Key Habits of an A-Player

The 4 Key Habits of an A-Player | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

In hard times, you need to make tough decisions for the sake of your business. Most importantly, you need the right people by your side. But how do you identify the people who will turn your business around? What are the characteristics of these "A players" that make them so critical?

I learned the hard way when the bubble burst in 2001 and LivePerson, like all other tech companies, was losing clients fast. We were forced to reduce our staff by more than half--from 180 down to 80.

I am always impressed when someone remembers my name...especially after the first meeting.  This skill is mastered by practicing some particular actions that will help you recall names...


If you want to make deep connections, use the names of the people you are connecting with... Pick one of these actions and practice it consistently for a month or so... you'll be amazed at how it improves your retention and interactions.

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Life is stressful enough for most of us. Allowing a toxic individual to ravage your immediate environment can cause havoc in your mental well-being, which can lead to physical challenges.

A bad state of mind not only affects your physical well-being but makes it difficult for you to respond calmly under pressure. Ninety percent of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions, so your ability to perform effectively can be affected if you do not adopt strategies that will allow you to deal with toxic people.

Don Wilson's curator insight, July 13, 12:52 PM

Emotional Intelligence is a great skill to possess. It will truly benefit your life and everyone around you. If you are a student, parent, husband, wife, employee, employer; entrepreneur, teacher, preacher. If you are a man woman, or child, EI, can help you release damaging toxins, left by toxic people (and you too) that add undue stress, tension, and pressure; and free yourself, by improving your mental state, which in turn, increases your health and performance.

 

Other benefits include, but are not limited to; lower blood pressure and hyper-tension, blood sugar levels (diabetes), headaches, back and stomach pain. Paranoia, anxiety, and other related symptoms.

 

I am a student and practitioner of EI; and I have grown and benefited from it greatly, and so can you.

Great Ways to Deal with Toxic People! 

Alicia Newton's curator insight, July 14, 9:07 AM

Great article on avoiding the quicksand of toxic people. I practice many of these techniques. Boundaries; many you will have to love from a distance and it's ok. Being clear that just because people have the right to say what they want doesn't make it true about you; keep it moving. There will be positive & negative people. You get to choose who you will lend your energy to.
