Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

While many people don't like to sell, most find themselves having to persuade someone at some point. Persuasion is not just for salespeople and their prospects. You may try to persuade an employee to perform better, or perhaps you want to persuade your boss to take on your brilliant idea.

Often the most effective persuaders are your kids. Somehow they come by it naturally while you, the adult, has to work hard to find the persuasive path to success.

Whatever your persuasive need, here are 7 things that the most persuasive people consistently do:

Do You Have The Right Personality To Work From Home?

Do You Have The Right Personality To Work From Home? | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

When considering whether or not to work from home, you may think that the biggest consideration is if you are an introvert who likes to work alone. But Michael Segovia, lead trainer for the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (a personality assessment tool that is used by around 80% of Fortune 1000 companies to give employees a better understanding of how their personality preferences affect their working lives), says that anyone, regardless of their personality, can work from home. The trick to working from home effectively is self-understanding.


Segovia identifies six personality preferences and shares ways in which we can work from home effectively within these personality traits.



Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

The trick to being successful while working from home is understanding how to work around your personality preferences.

Kimberly Kline's curator insight, Today, 9:58 AM

While anyone can work from home, not everyone will be happy or productive doing so.  It really takes knowing yourself and whether you can be self-disciplined and able to work around the loneliness.  But, for many, the plusses outweigh the minuses!

10 Amazing Secrets of Happy and Successful Leaders

10 Amazing Secrets of Happy and Successful Leaders | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

We talk about happiness as if it were a thing to be discovered and acquired.

But happiness can never be found externally. It is not a possession to be acquired or a set of conditions, but a state of mind.

The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything, but they have learned to make the best of whatever they have.

The happiest leaders aren't necessarily focused on success or failure but live by a different perspective--and that outlook makes all the difference.

Here's how they live.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Too many of us are missing a critical element when it comes to our lives - happiness. Read on for the amazing secrets of the happiest leaders.

5 Things Fighter Pilots Know About Performance Under Pressure

5 Things Fighter Pilots Know About Performance Under Pressure | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Forget about perfect information.


Lohrenz says that, as a pilot, there is just way too much information coming in for it all to be processed perfectly, or even well. When she was flying, there could be three different people speaking to her via radio, all at once. There were 42 distinct beeps and buzzers that could go off in the cockpit, each indicating something different. She had literally hundreds of knobs and dials to deal with.


And while flying at the speed of sound, her body would be exposed to eight times the force of gravity, draining the blood from her head and upper extremities and causing her toenails to feel as if they were about to pop off.


In short: These were not optimal conditions for decision making. The rule of thumb, Lohrenz says, was that 80 percent was good enough. If you were 80 percent certain of something, you did it.

Carey Lohrenz, one of the first women to fly the F-14 fighter jet, shares her advice for working through extraordinary pressure.

9 Ways the Most Successful People See Life Differently

9 Ways the Most Successful People See Life Differently | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

While supposedly every cloud has a silver lining, when you're truly up against it, silver linings can be really hard to find.

So take a moment and look at your challenges, your roadblocks, your barriers, your--well, everything you face on a daily basis--and see them for what they really are: blessings.

While some people are successful because they're given special opportunities, usually the difference in long-term success and failure lies in what we do when we're faced with adversity, misfortune, and seemingly insurmountable challenges.

Everyone faces the following difficulties; successful people find ways to stay positive, keep working, and eventually overcome what to others seems insurmountable.

And you can too. Today, start changing your perspective.
