Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how “power posing” -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don’t feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

This is a great TED talk. I cannot really comment on the psychology or the science but the explanation resonates with my anecdotal experience. This is worthy of 20 minutes of your time to listen and watch and then some more to reflect upon the obvious possibilities but also the long term ramifications for the development of young people.

Several years ago, I had a conversation with a person about the lack of this in education. Her response surprised me. She told me research suggested that teachers are isolated and it is hard to encourage one another. As well, it seems to be the way those in positions of power want it. Henry Giroux suggested that schools are political and cultural sites, but I found they rarely feel that way.

John Michel's curator insight, February 9, 2:46 AM

Gallup surveys show that when people have positive interactions and close friends on the job, they will be significantly more engaged in their work (not to mention more productive and effective) than those who do not. Employees want to feel a sense of belonging at work--that people care about them, and that they are doing meaningful work.

Angie Mc's curator insight, February 10, 11:50 PM

This same logic can be applied to families. Consider teens who feel no sense of optimism,  authenticity, belonging and meaning in their families.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 7:15 PM

Leading is often about asking questions rather than having answers. Questions suggest that employees do know something the boss might not fully understand. This was rarely my experience in education. Usually, the people outside the classroom had the answers until it was a crisis moment.

How Successful People Cure Their Blindspots - #Leadership

Do you know what your leadership blindspots are? It’s a trick question because, by definition, blindspots are areas where you lack awareness of your weakness.

As an Executive Coach one of the greatest aha moments comes when b.lindspots are revealed.  Leaders will say things like "this is the first time I have ever heard this, or I have never been told this by anyone else." 

 

We all have blindspots, and as soon as we uncover some old ones new ones will certainly surface.

#Leadership Question

#Leadership Question | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

The relationship bank account that Stephen Covey introduced many years ago is an excellent way to inventory how you are doing as a leader. 

 

Overall how full is your relationship bank account with your team?  How do you know?  Another great question to ask ourselves is what does my team feel or think about me?

 

How I make my team feel says everything about me as a leader.  Remember, people may not remember what you say; however, they rememeber how you make them feel. 

 

If your team had the power to re-hire you or hire another leader...what do you think they would do -- would they keep you?

Disconnect to Connect - #Leadership

Disconnect to Connect - #Leadership | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it
Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

As leaders the reality is that it is more challenging than ever to genuinely connect.  We may have more technology to send information and data to millions of people at an instant -- yet more than ever with the very technology we are using we are losing the battle at times with truly connecting and reaching the hearts and minds of our teams.

 

Sometimes it is easy to lose our way, because technology is leading us instead of us leveraging technology in strategic purposeful ways.

 

With organizations we send out so many emails and communications and can't understand why we are not getting through. 

 

George Bernard Shaw said, “The problem with communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”Most organizations fall short from communicating effectively partyly because of the communication strategy that is in place.

 

This is a challenge for everyone to consider this week:

 

1.  Do your best to Disconnect to connect this week.  I mean put down your iphones and smartphones when you are in front of people and be there...talk to your team, walk into their office. (If you are in a meeting, leave your iphone in the office)

 

2.  If there are issues -- work on connecting with those who you work with.  If you pay attention you may be the only person in the room that is 100% focused, there, and paying attention to those around you.  Watch the reactions and body language of those who you are communicating and interacting with.  

 

Please share with us your success stories and what you do to disconnect to connect and to effectively tell stories.

 

 Until next time....PS - Live on Purpose!

Kudos's curator insight, April 4, 1:48 PM

Some great advice. Simple rules to follow. I would print this out and hang it on your wall and bring it out before every group meeting to refresh what you need to cover.

 

That brings up another key point - when was the last time you had a team meeting. We all think we have meetings all the time but the truth is we do not have as many as we think we do or should. 

 

Weekly, Bi-weekly, Monthly - what is the right frequency? Weekly is a good place to start but maybe you switch up the main purpose of the team meetings and make them mandatory.

 

We do monthly Team Talks - that allows everyone to communicate what is happening in their group / department and ask questions. Item #8 - Check.

 

We also do Lunch and Learns - that allows one person or a group /department to show off what they are thinking about or working on. Goo way to get the innovation ideas flowing - One more for #8 - double check.

 

Totally agree with doing a great job with on boarding - make a persons first day a great day. This is is a whole blog post on it's own. I also like sending good people off with some fanfare and a thank you. They are ambassadors for your company  thank you, good luck and farewell event to highlighting in a bigger meeting is a very good idea. #9 - Check, check.

 

The rest of the items - are leadership touch points to that should be communicated as often as possible - such as the events listed above. In fact, we believe that these communication should be free flowing and  a product like Kudos is designed  to help companies do that with a big dose of #7. Show your appreciation often and say thanks to people every week.  

 

I call it leading out loud and doing it in structured ways will make people feel more connected to the company and one another. Transparency and honesty is a good thing - Your team  can handle the truth so keep them in the loop :)

 

If you ever wondered what those companies you admire so much do - that is pretty well it.  

 

Cheers,

 

T

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Leadership Advice & Tips | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor, Katherine Bryant, David Hain
Patricia D. Sadar - Career and Leadership Acceleration Coach's insight:

This article is more true now than ever!

 

A leader who is genuinely interested in what I have to say, and is actively listening to me ...I it makes me feel pretty important -- like they care about me, and prioritize me over their emails and paperwork.

 

The pay off is big in terms of building stronger relationships, productivity, improved communication and quality. 

 

When you go to your next meeting do your best to keep you iphone or smart phone on silent and in your pocket.  Before the meeting use the time wisely to re-connect with those who you work with. 

 

I was told this early in my career, and I believe it to be true that as we move up the ladder in positions we need to talk listen and listen more to our teams.  (When we talk we are repeating what we already know; however, when we listen chances are we will learn something new.)
