Traditional Leadership Hierarchies Are Dead, Or Should Be

Traditional Leadership Hierarchies Are Dead, Or Should Be | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Growth and innovation doesn't necessarily come from the people with lofty titles, but from the people who develop new ideas and execute them on a daily basis. And that's why, increasingly, traditional hierarchies don't work--and neither do traditional promotion and recognition systems.

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen
Graeme Reid's insight:

Interesting article.  It does not propose that hierarchies should not exist or are bad for the organisation, but that the traditional hierarchies based on tenure rather than merit should be challenges  I especially like the comment - listen to your employees to determine the real leaders.

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest

Multitasking Damages Your Brain And Career, New Studies Suggest | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

You’ve likely heard that multitasking is problematic, but new studies show that it kills your performance and may even damage your brain.

 

A Special Skill?


But what if some people have a special gift for multitasking? The Stanford researchers compared groups of people based on their tendency to multitask and their belief that it helps their performance. They found that heavy multitaskers—those who multitask a lot and feel that it boosts their performance—were actually worse at multitasking than those who like to do a single thing at a time.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Graeme Reid's insight:

Multitasking in meetings and other social settings indicates low self- and social-awareness, two emotional intelligence (EQ) skills that are critical to success at work.

People who are regularly bombarded with several streams of electronic information cannot pay attention, recall information, or switch from one job to another as well as those who complete one task at a time.

Aaron Curtis's curator insight, October 9, 9:08 AM

Well I have to say this would be a home run. Throughout high school, my jobs and even college, I have noticed that multitasking has become somewhat of an acquired trait. This article speaks on some key points that relate not only to PR practitioners, but aims towards students as well. Staying focus on one task at a given moment can help reduce the "noise" in your head; Keeping that in mind, working on one project at a time also provides you with a window for a more accurate end result

How Stress Is Making You Lose Your Mind

How Stress Is Making You Lose Your Mind | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

Stress is affecting your brain much more than you think. Sure, you've experienced the distraction, forgetfulness, negativity or anxiety that comes from stressful situations, but did you know it's also shrinking your brain? Hormones released in response to stress not only affect brain function, they also change the physical structure of your brain.

The stress hormone cortisol can kill, shrink, and stop the generation of new neurons in a portion of the brain called the hippocampus. The hippocampus is critical for learning, memory and emotional regulation, as well as shutting off the stress response after a stressful event is over: all much-needed processes in both our professional and personal lives.

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit

How to be truly happy at work, by Chris Gaborit | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

There have been many letdowns in my life and valleys along the way. I was promised promotions from managers that never eventuated, pay raises that I never saw, and opportunities that never came.

 

Today, however, I am so happy and where I wanted to be. I am financially blessed and in love with life. However, life was not always so happy. What are the keys to reaching your goals and being where you want to be?

 

1. Commit to give 100% in all you do.

From the first time in Grade 1 when teams and captains were chosen at school, I wanted to be the captain. I have always wanted to be financially successful and be a leader. Maybe it is because we were so poor as a family that I had to ride my old bike every morning to the bakery to buy 20 cents worth of 2-day-old chook (chicken) bread, which we ended up eating, or maybe because we could not afford real milk or butter.

The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do

The Reasons People Don’t Follow Their Passions, and What You Can Do | Motivational Leadership | Scoop.it

It's pretty hard to pursue something you aren't sure about. If you can't seem to find something you'd love doing, you're not alone. Many of us struggle with what our own ideas of what a "dream job" would be. If you feel a little like you're just floating along the river of life, it might be a good idea to grab a paddle and start exploring uncharted waters. Take a step out of your comfort zone and experience new things. When you're stuck in your bubble, you're afraid of being uncomfortable. Branch out and see what's out there. Eventually you'll encounter something that gets you excited.
