Jerry Busone's curator insight, December 15, 2014 8:08 AM

HBR Study shows Recognition and a sense of progress drive motivation. Recognition is tough to do daily and consistently across a team. How many people do you know got recognized for something you did and didn't. Sense of purpose can apply across all... at your next team meeting ask each person to share what they got done last week and what they will accomplish this week. Recognize and motivate them from there.

Great insights from a great leader. 

"Misfiring on performance or values — Overcommitting and under-delivering.Resistance to change — Failing to embrace new ideas.Being a Problem Identifier vs a Problem Solver.Winning over your boss but not your business peer group.Always worrying about your next career move versus focusing on the present.Running for office – it’s totally transparent to everyone but you!Self-importance — exhibiting a humorless, rigid attitude.Lacking the courage and conviction to push back on the system.Forgetting to develop your own succession plan for when you get promoted.Complacency — you’ve stopped growing."

What successful people do differently - Harvard Business Review

Pavel Barta's insight:

Happy & Successful Year 2015

Overview: Get specific. Seize the moment to act on your goals. Know exactly how far you have left to go. Be a realistic optimist. Focus on getting better, rather than being good. Believing you have the ability to reach your goals is important, but so is believing you can get the ability. Have grit. Grit is a willingness to commit to long-term goals, and to persist in the face of difficulty. Build your willpower muscle. Your self-control “muscle” is just like the other muscles in your body — when it doesn’t get much exercise, it becomes weaker over time. Don’t tempt fate. No matter how strong your willpower muscle becomes, it’s important to always respect the fact that it is limited, and if you overtax it you will temporarily run out of steam. Focus on what you will do, not what you won’t do. Do you want to successfully lose weight, quit smoking, or put a lid on your bad temper? Then plan how you will replace bad habits with good ones, rather than focusing only on the bad habits themselves.

What the Social Progress Index can reveal about your country

What the Social Progress Index can reveal about your country | Sustainable Leadership to follow | Scoop.it
The term Gross Domestic Product is often talked about as if it were “handed down from god on tablets of stone.” But this concept was invented by an economist in the 1930s. We need a more effective measurement tool to match 21st century needs, says Michael Green: the Social Progress Index. With charm and wit, he shows how this tool measures societies across the three dimensions that actually matter. And reveals the dramatic reordering of nations that occurs when you use it.
Pavel Barta's insight:

"GDP tells us very little about happiness of individual people or the well being of a community. It also has very little to do with fairness and justice. We should measure different things in 21st century ... "

Pavel Barta's insight:

"1. Listening is one of the most important skills that anyone can have. That’s a very Virgin trait. Listening enables us to learn from each other, from the marketplace, and from the mistake that must be made in order to get anywhere that is original and disruptive. I learn so much from guests and employees that way.

2. Learn: Learning and leadership go together. Too much credit goes to me for what we have achieved at Virgin but the successes happen from working and learning with some of the world’s most inspiring and inspired people.

3. Laughter: My number one rule in business, and in life, is to enjoy what you do. Running a business involves long hours and hard decisions; if you don’t have the passion to keep you going, your business will more than likely fail."
