4 Major Sleep Related Factors That Affect Our Cognitive Performance

4 Major Sleep Related Factors That Affect Our Cognitive Performance | Peak Performance | Scoop.it

If you want to be an active, energetic person, that is successful in your business, there is an essential key factor that will really help you achieving those goals you have set to yourself: a good night sleep.  This may just sound common sense, but there is actually loads of new research coming out that evidences  the benefits of regular seven to nine hour sleep.  Even though everyone knows about the need of a full night sleep, unfortunately we are still trying to get rid of a strongly entrenched trend in society that for decades has confused sleeplessness with vitality and high performance,  particularly in the corporate cultures.  Who doesn´t know (or hasn´t identified with)  the ambitious person who works all the time, sleeps five to six hours a day for weeks in a row, and is addicted to cups of coffee (the world’s second-most widely sold commodity, after oil) ?

Gain Website's curator insight, December 8, 2013 9:34 PM

 A good night sleep enables a person's brain to relax and recover from stressful thinking due to a very heavy work load. As they said, lack of sleep can cause various psychological effects towards attitude and behavioral activity.

 

A business minded person somehow can sacrifice his/her time from sleeping but sacrificing that is done everytime is not good towards health and mental health. So be cautious of budgeting time if you want to have a successful career towards business. 

 

If in case you have problems with sleeping patterns and observe slight changes towards your attitude you can do some research to overcome this kind of situation. But if you don't have spare time researching and reading articles online you can consult to a psychologist who can manage and let you fully understand the concept of your problem and aids to help you over come such.

 

A good psychologist in Delaware that can help you with this kind of situation is Dr. Carl Shekhar. View her webpage to know more details about this certified psychologist in Delaware: www.CarolGrahamShekhar.com

The Real Costs of Keeping a Toxic Employee

The Real Costs of Keeping a Toxic Employee | Peak Performance | Scoop.it

You know the type. They can't work with others. They're negative, volatile, and often disruptive. Some people call these toxic employees "bad apples." 

 

Another way to think of them? "Hurricane" employees because the damage they cause extends far beyond themselves. 

 

Michelle K. Duffy, a professor at the Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota, says that hurricane employees can affect each organization differently. But, in general, they have the ability to "destroy the social fabric of the organisation by creating friction, drama, tension, and hostility among other employees".

harmony in the work place means the whole team will perform above expectations. Dont be fixated just on output from each individual, there may be some gold hiding  in the team just waiting for an opportunity to shine.

Denise Lombardo's curator insight, November 23, 2013 6:47 PM

Lots of resonance here - in terms of working as a leader with other teachers, and in terms of teaching and providing feedback to students. The notion of postivies plus constructive criticism and honesty aligns with formative assessment principles, too, eg Medals and Missions (Petty).
