Turning Who You Are into What You Do

How others perceive our identity and actions may be very different to who we think we are and what we think we’re doing.

Contemporary neuroscience has now affirmed Freud’s inferential assumptions - that we are all quite ignorant of ourselves and of the mechanisms that determine a large part of how we feel and act.


In the corporate world, the fact that much of our mental activity is done on an automated mode explains the dichotomy between what executives say they do, and what they actually do. Why the significant gap between good intentions and actual behaviour exists, and why so many executives are completely unaware, of it is troublesome.

Interesting article that links the Vulnerability concept with the classic Micro Manager behaviour.

Why and how is this video worthwhile?  It's informative and it's inspirational.  It shows six very different personalities, ages and stages, who have all 'made it' doing the same job, in very different ways.  

It shows their strength of character and passion (you can call this ego, either way, it's a potency to do courageous things, and a required attribute of a great leader).  

It shows their willingness to learn from others and mistakes, to master a craft, and build a collaborative team, rather than simply collect extrinsic rewards (of which they have received oodles, anyway).  

And it shows their humility (what they're afraid of, what they have learned, and what they regret), even if some appear to have more than others.

What do Dwight Eisenhower, George Eliot and Dorothy Day all have in common? Besides achieving career success, all overcame a personality weakness -- such as a bad temper or big ego -- that led to internal transformation. Judy Woodruff sits down with David Brooks to discuss his new book, “The Road to Character,” and rethinking our personal priorities.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, September 12, 2015 7:47 AM

According to the 2015 PwC survey, including responses from more than a thousand CEOs, a number cited “curiosity” and “open-mindedness” as leadership traits that are becoming increasingly critical in challenging times.

Michelle Cubas's curator insight, September 24, 2015 4:45 PM

A key coaching element is to remain curious when working with clients. This is a tip for leaders who want to remain present as well. Rather than preparing a thought to make a comment, being curious about others is a tremendous fact-finding tool. Use this while networking also—It puts the emphasis on the other person & reduces personal anxiety. Go for it!

Cécile Lemoine's curator insight, October 3, 2015 3:31 AM

Cela a toujours été vrai, mais le défi de la curiosité est plus grand aujourd'hui avec un accès à une telle multitude de domaines... Une compétence clé est aussi la vision systémique pour faire des liens inédits entre des domaines différents.
