Put yourself In the Shoes Of Others When Managing Change | Leadership Principles

Put yourself In the Shoes Of Others When Managing Change | Leadership Principles | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

When it comes to Change Management, people often don’t understand the impact that changes can have upon the people.

We are all human beings and we are prone to emotional responses, and in times of stress, such as change, these responses can be very strong, and are often under estimated.

Just recently I had to inform my wife of big change, this change was good for me, a great opportunity, and I thought she would see it in the same light.


Via Ricard Lloria, Gladys Pintado
Jenny Ebermann's insight:

I especially like this phrase: "We should never forget that people don’t like change, they much prefer stability and security it is a basic human need, and even good change can be very stressful at the start."

Today we all realize that we do our best work in those special moments when we are in flow. And for leaders helping people get into flow and stay there means they will work at their peak abilities.

Las 5 habilidades del mindfulness para el liderazgo

Las 5 habilidades del mindfulness para el liderazgo | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

En los últimos años muchos altos directivos y CEOS de grandes empresas declaran abiertamente que practican técnicas de mindfulness (atención plena) y meditación para ganar visión global y perspectiva, y tomar mejores decisiones. Algunas de las empresas más importantes del mundo están implementando programas de mindfulness entre sus directivos con gran éxito.

Más de 4000 empleados de Google han pasado por el programa de mindfulness“Searchinsideyourself”.  En General Mills (una de las multinacionales más grandes del mundo) la meditación y el mindfulness están revolucionando la compañía, gracias al programa de desarrollo Mindfulleadership, por el que han pasado cientos de ejecutivos.

 

El Centro de investigación de la NASA en Langley está introduciendo clases de meditación y mindfulness para sus trabajadores para mejorar su bienestar y productividad en un entorno de alta exigencia. También se ha implantado un programa de mindfulness para los oficiales de policía del estado de Oregón, orientado a la mejora de sus recursos para gestionar la situaciones de estrés, mejorar su atención en el trabajo y favorecer sus habilidades de interconexión con la gente a la que sirven.

Pero ¿En qué consiste el mindfulness? Es una recopilación de técnicas milenarias orientales como la meditación zen, el yoga y el escáner corporal, que han sido estudiadas y validadas de forma científica por miles de estudios de investigación y numerosas Universidades de todo el mundo. La neurociencia ha certificado y demostrado el impacto positivo del mindfulness en nuestro cerebro, el órgano más poderoso que tenemos, y también con mayor potencial de transformarnos como profesionales y como líderes.

 

Estas son las 5 habilidades esenciales del mindfulnesspara un líder, que se mejoran cuando practicamos de forma regular durante varios meses:

MyKLogica's curator insight, November 14, 2013 6:38 AM

He traído aquí este artículo que me ha llegado vía Ricard Lloria (un buen amigo y una de mis "fuentes" favoritas de artículos que me inspiran), de Javier Carril para RRHHDigital, porque es esperanzador la cantidad de descubrimientos científicos que están haciendo que la empresa integre y adopte prácticas, hasta ahora, casi tabúes en ella y pertenecientes al ámbito privado del desarrollo personal y, especialmente esperanzador, es el nivel al que ha llegado dentro de la gran empresa, el tipo de empresas que ya lo practican y lo que conllevará de aquí a muy poco tiempo. 

 

En este caso ha sido gracias a la neurociencia con el tema del "mindfulness" o en español, "meditación" (meditación activa, concentración, relajación ...) y su reflejo en el desarrollo de competencias profesionales, claves hoy en día y más con la situación actual:

 

- Foco en lo importante

- Inteligencia emocional

- Visión estratégica

- Flexibilidad ante el cambio

- Creatividad e innovación

 

Os recomiendo leer la descripciones que de ellas hace Javier en su artículo: Las 5 habilidades del mindfulness para el liderazgo, cuya introducción tenéis arriba y me sirve de presentación a mi siguiente entrada, cuyo primer borrador sale de aquí pero, viendo el cariz que está tomando, sería desviar el foco de la entrada de Javier, razón por la cual, os dejo lo que llevo escrito (en Crónicas de MyKLogica) pero a lo importante:

Why is EMPATHY the key to brand success in the 21st century?

Why is EMPATHY the key to brand success in the 21st century? | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

THE PROMISE OF EMPATHYIn 2008, Karina Encarnacion, an eight year-old girl from Missouri, wrote to President-elect Barack Obama with some advice about what kind of dog he should get for his daughters.

She also suggested that he enforce recycling and ban unnecessary wars.

Obama wrote to thank her, and offered some advice of his own:

“If you don’t already know what it means, I want you to look up the word ‘empathy’ in the dictionary. I believe we don’t have enough empathy in our world today,   and it is up to your generation to change that.”
