Many of our habits do not support our growth, development and success. Rather than break an old habit that doesn't work. Replace it with a new habit that does. This article shows you how in very digestible steps. Your mentoring partner is the perfect person to turn to for support as you develop your new habit.

7 Habit Changes that will Improve Your Business

7 Habit Changes that will Improve Your Business | Mentoring Practices | Scoop.it
Small business changes can have a big impact if done correctly. Using these tips for changing your business habits can result in profitable results.

Via Daniel Watson
Susan Bender Phelps's insight:

Our habits are so easy to do because they are habits and we don't have to think about them to do them and that's also why bad habits or unproductive habits are so hard to break. The good news is, you don't have to break them. Just adopt a new practice and repeat until it becomes a habit. Old habits literally fall away with disuse. This article gives us very concrete and practical ways to start.

All implementable by anyone anywhere. Particularly like the fixing little things every day (I'd add it doesn't have to be fixing it can simply be improving) I call this every day innovation. I also like the it's not a fixing people it's about fixing process

Jump out of your comfort zone and enjoy all the new technology. You actually don't have a choice because information technology changes or improves as a pace that one can not keep up with. Screen through all and learn from the information applicable to the growth of your Business.

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity

Why Saying This Four-Letter Word Can Transform Your Productivity | Mentoring Practices | Scoop.it

Perfectionists are often reminded that "done is better than perfect." But it turns out there’s another reason we should all try to create more "done" moments in our workdays.

Saying the word done can help you get more accomplished on your to-do list. "Telling ourselves that we’re done creates not only an emotional reaction but a physiological response as well," says Leslie Sherlin, a psychologist, neuroperformance specialist, and the cofounder of the brain-training company SenseLabs.

Susan Bender Phelps's insight:

When we are mentoring someone who has a pattern of being overwhelmed, helping them to see that a task or project is done and declaring that it is done is a very powerful tool.

Mentoring is the Down Payment on Our Future

Mentoring is the Down Payment on Our Future | Mentoring Practices | Scoop.it
Light her candle, let in some additional light and life to your workplace ... as she is a daughter, a sister, potentially a future mother, scientist, IT leader and she needs you to help her light up her path....

Via María L. Burgos-Garay
Susan Bender Phelps's insight:

All of our competing priorities can make mentoring look like another thing to add to our already too busy schedule. Once you learn to be an effective mentor, you really can lead someone to an insight and an action plan in just 5- 15 minutes. These are skills that last a lifetime - making you a stronger mentor, manager, leader, even parent.

The 3 A's of Transformational Change....

The 3 A's of Transformational Change.... | Mentoring Practices | Scoop.it
There’s something different when change is both transformational and sustainable, and I think I’ve narrowed down to these three steps...

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Susan Bender Phelps's insight:

This is a MUST read for mentors and mentees. The author distinguishes the ingredients that are common to transformational change. What he leaves out is the value of a committed listener, a mentoring partner who can support you in staying on track. These distinctions will help you cause and sustain breakthroughs in performance and results.
