Life isn’t linear. No matter how well thought out your plans, they’ll eventually collide with a reality you didn’t plan on. Learning to "lean into the curves" when life doesn’t unfold as you’d hoped will help spare you untold stress, bounce back faster and emerge better off.  Here’s five ways to do just that.

8 Ways Body Language Beats IQ

8 Ways Body Language Beats IQ | Open Innovation | Scoop.it

When it comes to success, it's easy to think that people blessed with brains are inevitably going to leave the rest of us in the dust, but social psychologist Amy Cuddy knows first-hand how attitude can outweigh IQ.

Cuddy suffered a car accident at the age of 19 which resulted in brain damage that took 30 points from her IQ. Before the crash Cuddy had an IQ near genius levels; her post-crash IQ was just average.

As someone who had always built her identity around her intelligence, the significant dip in Cuddy's IQ left her feeling powerless and unconfident. Despite her brain damage, she slowly made her way through college and even got accepted into the graduate program at Princeton.

Once at Princeton, Cuddy struggled until she discovered that it was her lack of confidence that was holding her back, not her lack of brainpower. This was especially true during difficult conversations, presentations, and other high-pressure, highly important moments.

Attitude and confidence can bring down or boost IQ levels as this story would like you to understand. In other words, there  should be a positive correlation between attitude, confidence and intelligence! Somehow there has to be, also a relationship between all of them and Emotional Intelligence.

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive | Fast Company | Open Innovation | Scoop.it

You’re a pretty rational person, or so you think: You’re often good at thinking logically and keeping your feelings out of it, right?

Wrong. (Sorry!) It wasn’t long ago that people believed emotions and logic were two completely separate things, operating independently of one another. But breakthroughs in brain science have made it clear that that’s far from true. It turns out that our brains are incapable of making fully unemotional decisions. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, you can use that cognitive reality in your favor to build relationships, network, and gain influence.

These ridiculously simple brain hacks can subtly encourage people to decide in your favor.

Vanessa Ong Li Wen's curator insight, March 19, 12:14 PM
I agree that at times, we need to angle our argument that targets one’s emotional capacity so as to strengthen the message we are trying to convey and be more persuasive. Although logic is an important factor in allowing people to understand what you are trying to say, simply informing them and convincing them are two separate matters. In essence, using positive emotions to encourage people to believe in you is the right way to go. Once they feel that they have established the connection with you, they will naturally be more inclined to believe whatever it is you are trying to say.

The Leadership Playbook: 8 Rules For Healthy Interactions At The Top

The Leadership Playbook: 8 Rules For Healthy Interactions At The Top | Open Innovation | Scoop.it

In any fast growing company, it's natural that conflict arises. It holds true at just about any company -- every type, every stage. Doesn't matter what market or size.

You'll see it happen most between functional areas. Sometimes marketing and operations will be at odds. Sometimes, it's marketing and sales, or sales and finance. Technology may want to go one direction, marketing another. Finance might lean too conservative.

It's why it's super important for your leadership team to have strong interpersonal skills and interactions. You can't rely on hiring great people alone. You also need to set the pace for solid interactions, help create and foster them. Nurture it at every turn.

We accomplish it a few ways at my company.

15 propositions pour l'innovation et la croissance

15 propositions pour l'innovation et la croissance | Open Innovation | Scoop.it
Au-dessus du tumulte d’un temps qui semble ne plus porter d’attention aux véritables enjeux, il faut rappeler que l’innovation et les entreprises innovantes sont incontournables à l’heure où le défi pour la France est celui de la compétitivité et de la croissance. Elles doivent être pleinement intégrées à la stratégie économique nationale et européenne et figurer parmi les priorités car elles sont très concrètement source de compétitivité, de croissance et peuvent donner à la France le souffle dont elle a tant besoin.
Animé par cette conviction, mais conscient des contraintes qui s’imposent aux pouvoirs publics, le Comité Richelieu fait 15 propositions d’actions qui se veulent réalistes, ambitieuses et concrètes pour simplifier, stabiliser, adapter les dispositifs en place et accélérer le mouvement qui doit conduire vers une efficacité appréciable des politiques publiques.

Teams Only Grow When They Evolve Together

Teams Only Grow When They Evolve Together | Open Innovation | Scoop.it

As a kid, I always gravitated to disruptors in the music I listened to: Elvis who disrupted the sound of the 1950s; Michael Jackson who disrupted the world of videos in the 1980s. Not surprising since disruption was in my blood. Shortly after he graduated college, my dad left a career in engineering and decided to pursue his passion for music. In the 1950s, his quartet, Los Llopis, disrupted the sounds of Cuba, becoming the first to integrate American rock ‘n’ roll with the rhythms and the sounds of the island.

 

But today I realize something: My dad wasn’t just disrupting the status quo – he was creating something new: Cuban crossover music. Elvis and Michael Jackson were creators too.

Foo Jia Qian's comment, February 27, 9:32 AM
I feel that in Singapore’s context, we have a slightly more rigid education system that often promotes conformity and a structured way of teaching. Students are expected to give model answers that they memorize off their notes and textbooks rather than explore and provide an answer from their own understanding of the concept of the topic. In such a sense, our education system is rather stagnant as we make no effort to progress into the future, instead we are stuck at the same spot and every batch of students go through the same old routine of memorizing standardized answers and simply “vomiting” them out during examination. However, what we fail to comprehend is that students only truly learn and absorb knowledge when we change together, and not stay the same together. We only become wiser when we witness changes around us and when concepts that we learn in textbooks can be applied to our daily lives. Only then can we truly understand them and grow from them. Hence, I feel that parents and teachers should not constantly push their children to “be as good as” their peers or be just like them. At the end of the day, we will become irrelevant in the society if we are simply “just like our peers” because there is no individuality and nothing that makes us unique. What a fast-paced society like Singapore really needs is people who are innovative and are out of the ordinary so that they provide the society with fresh perspectives and ideas that will eventually propel the country forward and enhance its growth.

If you stumble at the start of the 100 meters--it's nearly impossible to catch up. If you get off to a lethargic start to your day--you're going to be reacting to the day instead of being proactive.

Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why

Job Satisfaction Hits All Time High. Here's Why | Open Innovation | Scoop.it

88 percent of employees who participated in the 2016 SHRM Employee Job Satisfaction and Engagement Survey, indicated that they were satisfied with their current job. This marks the highest level of satisfaction over the past ten years.

Although there are many reasons that contributed to this statistic, "respectful treatment of employees at all levels" was at the top of the list for the second year in a row. It even beat out major players like pay, benefits and job security. (Did anyone else start singing a little Aretha Franklin?)

I'm not sure why I was surprised by this stat. It makes sense that if you're spending the majority of your waking hours somewhere that interpersonal relationships and culture would be important. It's also no surprise that when the participants were specifically asked about engagement, 77 percent indicated "relationships with their co-workers" was the most important. Let's take a look at how you can cultivate the two biggest factors of employee happiness at work.
