Daniel Goleman on Focus: The Secret to High Performance and Fulfilment - YouTube

http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/daniel-goleman-on-focus-high-performance-fulfilment/ Filmed at the Royal College of Music on 25th October 2013. 

Psychologist Daniel Goleman shot to fame with his groundbreaking bestseller Emotional Intelligence. The premise of the book, now widely accepted, is that raw intelligence alone is not a sure predictor of success in life. A greater role is played by 'softer' skills such as self-control, self-motivation, empathy and good interpersonal relationships.

Now Goleman comes to Intelligence Squared for an exclusive talk on the themes of his latest book, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence. Attention, he will argue, is an underrated asset for high achievers in any field. Incorporating findings from neuroscience, Goleman will show why we need three kinds of focus: inner, for self-awareness; other, for the empathy that builds effective relationships; and outer, for understanding the larger systems in which organisations operate. Those who excel rely on Smart Practices such as mindfulness meditation, focused preparation and positive emotions that help improve habits, add new skills, and sustain excellence."

Howard Rheingold's curator insight, May 19, 2014 3:49 PM

I've been following Goleman's work for decades. As I've mentioned before, infotention involves both practice of the inner skills of attention control (Goleman focuses on focus, which is one important -- but not the only -- attentional aspect that can be trained) and knowledge of how to use information tools. This one hour and 18 minute video lecture concentrates on the three kinds of focus.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, May 20, 2014 5:11 PM

Rhiengold recommended!  An hour+ on focus.  (Can you focus?)

How to Fuse Leadership Development With Purpose and Strategy

How to Fuse Leadership Development With Purpose and Strategy | Leadership | Scoop.it

According to “Real World Leadership,” aKorn Ferry global survey on leadership development published this month, organizations understand it’s a whole new world where slow growth and disruptive change are the norm.

However, the survey of more than 7,500 responses from 107 countries, also revealed that organizations struggle to understand how they can use leadership development to effectively operate in this forever changed environment.

Some sound advice on making leadership development relevant.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, January 7, 11:01 PM

"Leadership development should not live in a vacuum; it needs to be directly connected to real business challenges, opportunities, projects and perspectives." To do this requires Sr leaders be engaged in the process of developing leaders from building a bench through their careers as leaders.

Emerging World's curator insight, January 8, 2:11 AM

The authors of this piece make the point that, "individuals are far more motivated and energized when they are connected to a higher purpose and feel they are providing a service to society, their customers and their community"


"This," they argue, "can be achieved by linking service-based activity to the leadership development strategy, allowing leaders to deploy their skills in service of something greater than themselves."


I couldn't agree more.

Transparent Is the New Clever

Transparent Is the New Clever | Leadership | Scoop.it

Back to the Roots co-founder Nikhil Arora shares his unconventional methods for launching his company from a college experiment to a fully functioning social enterprise. Arora shares how candid transparency (and pictures of ugly fungi) helped his company’s mushroom growing kits become a hit among children and on Facebook. For each kit sold, Back to the Roots also donates one to an elementary school. The good will and social media generated sold more kits, which resulted in more donations.

“Google made headlines by saying they would make money without doing evil,” he says. “That seems like a cop out. In business today, you can make money and do good.”

Success Will Come and Go, But Integrity is Forever

Success Will Come and Go, But Integrity is Forever | Leadership | Scoop.it
If I could teach only one value to live by, it would be this: Success will come and go, but integrity is forever. Integrity means doing the right thing at all times and in all circumstances, whether or not anyone is watching. It takes having the courage to do the right thing, no matter what the consequences will be. Building a reputation of integrity takes years, but it takes only a second to lose, so never allow yourself to ever do anything that would damage your integrity.

Personal Renewal

Personal Renewal | Leadership | Scoop.it

This is a speech delivered by John Gardner to McKinsey & Company in November 10, 1990.


Excerpt from the speech: 


We have to face the fact that most men and women out there in the world of work are more stale than they know, more bored than they would care to admit. Boredom is the secret ailment of large-scale organizations. Someone said to me the other day "How can I be so bored when I'm so busy?" And I said "Let me count the ways." Logan Pearsall Smith said that boredom can rise to the level of a mystical experience, and if that's true I know some very busy middle level executives who are among the great mystics of all time.


Learn all your life. Learn from your failures. Learn from your successes, When you hit a spell of trouble, ask "What is it trying to teach me?" The lessons aren't always happy ones, but they keep coming. It isn't a bad idea to pause occasionally for an inward look. By midlife, most of us are accomplished fugitives from ourselves.

 

The things you learn in maturity aren't simple things such as acquiring information and skills. You learn not to engage in self-destructive behavior. You leant not to burn up energy in anxiety. You discover how to manage your tensions, if you have any, which you do. You learn that self-pity and resentment are among the most toxic of drugs. You find that the world loves talent, but pays off on character. 

You come to understand that most people are neither for you nor against you, they are thinking about themselves. You learn that no matter how hard you try to please, some people in this world are not going to love you, a lesson that is at first troubling and then really quite relaxing. 

Those are things that are hard to learn early in life, As a rule you have to have picked up some mileage and some dents in your fenders before you understand. As Norman Douglas said "There are some things you can't learn from others. You have to pass through the fire.'

Want to Innovate? Become a "Now-ist"

Want to Innovate? Become a "Now-ist" | Leadership | Scoop.it
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. "Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea. This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects emerging today, and it starts, he says, with being open and alert to what’s going on around you right now. Don’t be a futurist, he suggests: be a now-ist.

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership?

Is Integrity the Secret to Great Leadership? | Leadership | Scoop.it
The actions of a business are its value statement. Actions speak volumes about what really matters most – not what should matter, not what we wish mattered, but what really does matter to us. They swamp mission statements, speeches or memos, and they eclipse intentions. Having the kind of integrity that leaves no room between what we say and what we do is really hard work. It’s much easier to follow the words of JR Ewing of the TV series Dallas, who said: “Once you lose your integrity, everything’s easy.” Lots of people have chosen this path. Others find it to be too much work to align their decisions and actions with what they claim as priorities.
