Researchers Debunk Myth Of Left-Brained and Right-Brained Traits

A new study completed by University of Utah neuroscientists concludes there is no evidence existing within brain imaging that pinpoints a difference in the way humans use specific sides of their brains.

How Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

How Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

Elysian Training's insight:

When Daniel Goleman popularised the idea of emotional intelligence it opened a conversation that has become the basis for modern organisational culture. We now take for granted that a person’s attitude and behavioural ‘style’ play a critical role in selecting, retaining and promoting employees. This new focus combined with work in the field of positive psychology allowed organisations for the first time to prioritise employee engagement and drive the recognition that the emotional experience of work profoundly impacts an organisations productivity.

 

Despite these huge strides forward one unfortunate fact has remained constant regardless of how fantastic your workplace culture… there will still be some people who are negative or with whom you just don’t connect. Even with significant organisational efforts it seems some of these ‘toxic’ people remain. The issue of ‘toxicity’ in businesses is well documented and in particular the disastrous effects of toxic leadership. For more on this subject read the excellent book “The allure of toxic leaders” by Jean Lipman-Blumen.


We must remember that the toxic person may not appear that way to others and perhaps we may well be part of the problem. Worse still, to others on bad days, we ourselves may appear toxic!

The secret to disagreeing with people from 20 different countries, in one chart

The secret to disagreeing with people from 20 different countries, in one chart | Personal Development | Scoop.it

As a bumbling American (or any nationality, really) abroad, there is no end to the ways that you can offend people and embarrass yourself in the process.

President Carter succeeded in 1977, when he told the Polish people, through an unfortunate translation, that he desired them “carnally.” President Bush offended Australians in 1992, when he gave a “V-for-victory” sign, the equivalent to a middle finger down under. And Michelle Obama had her own moment when she half-hugged the Queen in 2009, one of the few incidences of public hugging in the Queen’s 57-year career.

Erin Meyer, a professor at the global business school INSEAD, has accumulated her own thoughts on how to navigate cross-cultural missteps in a new book, “The Culture Map.” One chart that appears in the book, reprinted here with her permission, is particularly great at decoding some of the perils in cross-cultural communication.

5 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Relationship with Your Boss (And Your Next Boss)

5 Things You Can Do to Improve Your Relationship with Your Boss (And Your Next Boss) | Personal Development | Scoop.it

The most important driver of employee engagement is the relationship they have with their immediate manager,” says Piera Palazzolo, Senior Vice President of Dale Carnegie Training. She says the most successful relationships are those where bosses and employees really get to know one another.

“That’s different from years ago, when you weren’t supposed to ask any personal questions. Those lines are blurred now, people want you to care about them, particularly if there’s something going on in their lives that might affect their performance.”

There is a lot of great information out there in the world, but in a world where we need to focus more and more on developing the “whole child”, if our entire life revolves around education all of the time, I am not sure we are modelling “appropriate use” ourselves.  Not using something is also part of the appropriate use as we move forward.  There will always be something “awesome”, but to try to use everything is not possible or helpful in the long term.

These 4 Hobbies Can Actually Improve Job Performance

These 4 Hobbies Can Actually Improve Job Performance | Personal Development | Scoop.it
 While downtime of any kind can help relieve stress, there are several science-backed ways that let you enjoy life outside of the office while improving your productivity within it.
 

Research conducted by Kevin Eschleman, an assistant psychology professor at San Francisco State University, suggests hobbies that are less relevant to one’s career are paradoxically more beneficial for it.

 

"Whatever the activity is that you're doing in your free time, it becomes incredibly more valuable if it is different from what you've been doing most recently in your work environment," Eschelman told Fast Company in a previous interview. "People need to be mindful and aware of what resources they're using in the work environment to realize which resources they need to protect and refuel in their free time," he said.

How Nice People Can Master Conflict

How Nice People Can Master Conflict | Personal Development | Scoop.it
When you’re a nice person, conflict can be a real challenge. Not that mean people are any better at conflict; they just enjoy it more.

New research from Columbia University shows that how you handle conflict can make or break your career. The researchers measured something scientifically that many of us have seen firsthand—people who are too aggressive in conflict situations harm their performance by upsetting and alienating their peers, while people who are too passive at handling conflict hinder their ability to reach their goals.

Failure as Strength - The power of Failure for Innovation & Learning from Defeat

Failure as Strength - The power of Failure for Innovation & Learning from Defeat | Personal Development | Scoop.it

It’s really hard to talk about failure. The "Admitting Failure" website, connected to engineering failure stories at its creation, hopes to change that. 

_____________________
   
...acknowledging failure is often a catalyst for innovation... 
_____________________

    

It is painful for civil society organizations to acknowledge when we don’t meet our goals and objectives...   The paradox is that we do everything we can to avoid these pains even though we all know failure is the best teacher and we have to be open and talk about our failures in order to learn. ....acknowledging failure is often a catalyst for innovation that takes our work from good to great.
    

To address this conundrum we need a paradigm shift in how civil society views failure.  We think this starts with open and honest dialogue about what is working and what isn’t so Admitting Failure exists to support and encourage organizations to (not surprisingly) admit failure.
 

ad·mit   /ədˈmit/
verb: 
1. To concede as true or valid <admit responsibility for a failure>
2. To allow entry <admit failure into the organization, allowing a safe space for dialogue>
 

Fear, embarrassment, and intolerance of failure drives our learning underground and hinders innovation.
    
No more. Failure is strength. The most effective and innovative organizations are those that are willing to speak openly about their failures because the only truly “bad” failure is one that’s repeated.

"To begin again, this time more intelligently" is exactly why embracing failure is important to building high performing teams and to high performance cultures that truly support learning, adaptation and change.  For that reason, this innovative website is referenced on several websites, including an Oprah.com blog post about "What to Do When You're Feeling Defeated."   

Engineers Without Borders (EWB) set up this website to encourage aid workers to share their mistakes—and to kickstart future success, and then some.

After allowing for the process of accepting defeat, realize defeat and crisis can transform us, renew us, and provide a different perspective.  I may be the transformative feedback we need and have been missing.

Read also this op-ed column by David Brooks from The New York Times: The Moral Bucket List


Excerpt from the column: 


We live in the culture of the Big Me. The meritocracy wants you to promote yourself. Social media wants you to broadcast a highlight reel of your life. Your parents and teachers were always telling you how wonderful you were.


But all the people I’ve ever deeply admired are profoundly honest about their own weaknesses. They have identified their core sin, whether it is selfishness, the desperate need for approval, cowardice, hardheartedness or whatever. They have traced how that core sin leads to the behavior that makes them feel ashamed. They have achieved a profound humility, which has best been defined as an intense self-awareness from a position of other-centeredness.
