8 traits of female leadership you may wish to add to your leadership style whether you are a man or a woman.

Cath Daley's curator insight, March 4, 5:43 AM

The greatest leaders, whether male or female, are those who have the flexibility to change their behaviours and communication to adapt to different circumstances and situations. Having a fixed leadership style makes this more difficult. I believe to be a really successful leader we have to have characteristics of both male and female preferred styles which then enables you to develop this flexibility. One size doesn't fit all.

6 Habits of Highly Grateful People

6 Habits of Highly Grateful People | Inspiring Women Leaders | Scoop.it

Gratitude (and its sibling, appreciation) is the mental tool we use to remind ourselves of the good stuff. It’s a lens that helps us to see the things that don’t make it onto our lists of problems to be solved. It’s a spotlight that we shine on the people who give us the good things in life. It’s a bright red paintbrush we apply to otherwise-invisible blessings, like clean streets or health or enough food to eat.

 

Gratitude doesn’t make problems and threats disappear. We can lose jobs, we can be attacked on the street, we can get sick. I’ve experienced all of those things. I remember those harrowing times at unexpected moments: My heart beats faster, my throat constricts. My body wants to hit something or run away, one or the other. But there’s nothing to hit, nowhere to run. The threats are indeed real, but at that moment, they exist only in memory or imagination. I am the threat; it is me who is wearing myself out with worry.

 

That’s when I need to turn on the gratitude. If I do that enough, suggests the psychological research, gratitude might just become a habit. What will that mean for me? It means, says the research, that I increase my chances of psychologically surviving hard times, that I stand a chance to be happier in the good times. I’m not ignoring the threats; I’m appreciating the resources and people that might help me face those threats.

Great article, but so dis-appointing that there are people like me who have been working in this area and saying this for as long as my career. Just shows how pervasive hierarhical, rational, logical, thinking is in our socity. On the other hand, exciting and dare I say it "delicious" as there is so much work out there. So, if you are ready to open up to a whole new world, contact me!

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, November 16, 2013 8:05 AM

 

SUMMARY

 

For a long time, we believed that people were rational, logical agents, driven by self-interest, greed, and desire. In recent years, we have begun to realize that people have another driver that is of equal, if not greater, importance: the drive to be social.

 

The studies tell the story:

a)  Giving to charity activates the brain's reward system more than winning money.

b)  Painkillers like Tylenol relieve social pain the same way they relieve physical pain.

c)  Being socially rejected can lower your I.Q. score by 20% and cut your GRE score nearly in half.

d)  Seeing a friend regularly has the same effect on our well-being as making an extra $100,000.

e)  Volunteering to help others regularly produces the same increase in well-being as making an extra $50,000.

f)   When an employee meets a person who benefits from their work, that employee can double their productivity.

g)  People will pay $30,000 to be recognized as a high-status employee.

h)  And, finally, being socially connected is literally as good for your health as quitting smoking.

 

Social activity matters more than we have realized. Yet institutions and organizations, from political systems to hospitals, schools and corporations, have been built based on a different set of beliefs:

a)  that people are motivated by money,

b)  that physical -- not social -- health is most important

c)  and that social needs are "nice to have."

 

A boss who knows what his staff members really care about will be able to develop a better team environment.

 

We are deeply social beings, with social needs mattering more than physical needs in many situations. Maslow may have been wrong: Social may not be up the pyramid, it may be down at the base with physical needs. Until this insight makes its way into how we design our institutions, we may continue to see less than 30% of people in our organizations actively engaged in their work.

 

Cath Daley's curator insight, December 12, 2013 7:09 AM

and it really all comes down to the ability to be flexible with your communication so that you can interact with evryone in a way that reduces conflict and increases buy in.
