We Need to Accelerate the Development of Sustainability Metrics

We Need to Accelerate the Development of Sustainability Metrics | Happiness at work | Scoop.it

We need a generally accepted set of definitions and indicators for measuring sustainability. We also need independent auditors to verify that these numbers are real. Numbers without verification are ultimately useless.

The best advice I ever got from my mentor was: "you're spending too much time on the top line and notenough on the bottom line."

No man (or woman) is an island, and business owners need to seek advice and guidance from other successful business owners, if they themselves are to become successful in their respective endeavours.

 

One of the best ways to become better as a business owner, is to apply relevant advice that other business owners have successfully applied to their businesses, that they themselves received from others who went before them.

 

This excellent article, drawing on feedback from 13 successful Australian entrepreneurs, offers 13 great pieces of sound business advice that any business owner can take on board to improve the performance of their own business.

Here Are 10 Simple Body Language Tips That Will Boost Your Career

Here Are 10 Simple Body Language Tips That Will Boost Your Career | Happiness at work | Scoop.it

Body language is one of the most important and powerful types of communication in the history of the world. A wink conveys an air of mysticism and charm, a simple raised hand in front of your face tells everyone that you are not going to put up with what is happening anymore, and a leg popped behind you with your head tilted back is the international symbol for glee and whimsy.

How you present yourself physically at work can truly help (or hinder) your career. According to a study led by Amy J.C. Cuddy (@amyjccuddy), an associate professor of business administration at Harvard Business School, standing in a power pose for a few minutes before an interview can literally help you get the job. Watch Cuddy’s excellent TED Talk on power poses here. According to Cuddy, power posing also increases people’s tolerance for risk and pain, and their ability to think abstractly.

So what are some simple tricks you can do to make yourself a better negotiator, make a difficult task easier, and encourage more collaboration? We talked with  Dr.Carol Kinsey Goman, the author of 12 books including The Silent Language of Leaders: How Body Language Can Help—or Hurt—How You Lead, about her best body language workplace tips.
