The Stoic: 9 Principles to Help You Keep Calm in Chaos | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Observing individuals who lead a creative life, we can identify elements of expertise, grit, an understanding, and passion. What’s easy to overlook is the inner system within an individual—the set of principles that govern their mind and behavior. When failure ensues or the need to adapt is necessary, how does one respond? What do they tell themselves? In other words, what’s their philosophy?

10 Genuine Ways Anyone Can Be Exceptionally Charming | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Sure, everyone knows blunt, impolite, and even rude people who are somehow extremely successful. 

 

But since we're all more likely to do business and build professional and personal relationships with people we like, we're naturally drawn to people who are polite, modest, agreeable, kind. In short, people who are charming.

Making meaningful connections requires thoughtful interactions with people you meet,  but a lot of it is essentially being courteous and interested in others!   It is not complicated but for some of us who are less outgoing,  it does require some energy.  Think in terms of being nice.

Recently Zappos announced its move toward becoming a holacratic organization, one where traditional job titles and the roles of hierarchical management are irrelevant. While Zappos and other headline-grabbing companies attempt to innovate their way beyond the status quo, the vast majority of us still work in traditional cultures where power and influence are governed by titles, organization charts, and the fixed expectations they dictate.

Rehearsing Tomorrow – It’s No Joke

Rehearsing Tomorrow – It’s No Joke | Good News For A Change | Scoop.it

Gary Hamel and C.K. Prahalad, whose 1996 book Competing for the Future highlighted what they called the “40-30-20 Rule” of strategic planning.

 

By that they meant that most senior executives spend less than 40% of their time focused on the world outside their own organization, only about 30% thinking about the next three to five years, and no more than 20% of their time talking with their colleagues about the future to build a common view. In other words, only about 2.4% of management time (40% x 30% x 20%) is focused on building a corporate view of the future.

 

Yes, that’s right - 2.4%!
