What High Performers Do When Things Get Tough

What High Performers Do When Things Get Tough | Personal Development | Scoop.it

The last decade of entrepreneurship has taken place within a rapidly changing environment of growth, struggle, triumph and confusion. The cornerstones relied upon in the past for small business stability and growth have crumbled, leaving an expensive hodgepodge of misguided efforts and bipolar business strategies. 

 

Fundamentally, sales and marketing behaviors are no longer the same. Technology changes have made accurate access to complex business answers easier than ever. Data systems are faster and more people have smarter phones with faster access to the internet. Things we used to wonder about are now quickly answered by an audio search on Google. Business is no longer about having inside access to sales information.

Creativity is a chaotic place to be and for managers this is not where they want to be. They want certainty, but the real certainty is in uncertainty. This requires conversations and embracing the uncertainty along the way. Consider the way we hold curriculum as a plan that leads to learning. When learning does happen, it is because the classroom is a chaotic places where great conversations happen and bring meaning and life to inert outcomes.

John Michel's curator insight, April 16, 7:56 AM

Social changes make it easier than ever to build and maintain relationships that matter. External boundaries such as time zones, location and means of communication have rapidly evolved. People can now share pictures, video, quick thoughts or even their current location with thousands of individuals with just a few clicks of a button. Business is now about rich conversations with an audience all over the world

How Assertive Should You Be? The Answers Will Surprise You.

How Assertive Should You Be? The Answers Will Surprise You. | Personal Development | Scoop.it

Google the phrase “assertiveness training” and over 700,000 possibilities will pop up. Thanks to Sheryl Sandberg, “lean in” is the new mantra for women—and judging from the search options, it appears that every second person is either worrying about being a doormat, or working as a life coach.

 

We take it as truth that how assertive or unassertive we are affects every aspect of our lives, including work and relationships. Culturally, we link assertiveness to success, leadership, and getting ahead, but still, there’s ambivalence: Look up “assertive” in the dictionary and you’ll see its synonym is “aggressive.”

Don’t rely on your own perception of how assertive or unassertive you are; it’s not likely to be accurate. New research shows who really gets ahead.

Why I Think Machiavelli Was Right in the 1500′s and Why He is More Relevant in 2014!

Why I Think Machiavelli Was Right in the 1500′s and Why He is More Relevant in 2014! | Personal Development | Scoop.it

His teachings and theories in The Prince were directed more for those in the office of politics, however it is quite easy to translate those same principles to anyone who holds a position of leadership, management or supervision.

 

Here are my 7 reasons why Mr. Mach is more relevant today than ever!

 

Before I give you those 7 reasons I want to clarify one area I don’t agree with Mr Machiavelli...


1. Plan for the the worst and take action. Risk can never be eliminated, but it can be contained by those who plan ahead and take appropriate action.

 

2. The only reliable allies (partners) are those who benefit from your successes. Team up only with those who truly benefit from your victories or your opponent’s defeat.

 

3. Free time and work time really are all part of the limited amount of time you have at your disposal to succeed at your goals. Do not squander them, not even during periods of rest.

 

5. Passion is the best motivator. It pays to seek out people who believe passionately in what they do.

Eli Levine's curator insight, February 28, 9:24 AM

I actually did a rewrite of Machiavelli for my book of essays, It Comes Undone.  I came to the conclusion that Machiavelli was talking about the preservation of the State and the individual(s) who represent the state, and also that it was not those who simply ruled over people that mattered, but those who genuinely provided some genuine help and assistance to others throught the use of their power.

 

Consider that Machiavelli's idols, the Ferdinand of Aragons or the Caesars never have had the same sway over humanity as the Jesuses or the Buddhas or the Confuciuses or the Mohammads of the world.  The people you should be trying to emulate in action and consequence, if you're seeking the Machiavellian end of sustained power, are therefore those who served humanity in a genuine and sincere manner and satisfied a need within humanity's individual and collective mind.  It is those who healed, not those who simply destroyed, who we remember and honor the most strongly in the long run of history.

Here is one of the four:


Keep it Simple 

Every speech should be distilled to the simplest points so your audience will be able to retain the information. "When you see someone with 100 different bullet points on the slide," that's boring, says Holman. "Follow the rule of threes ... a simple grouping of things is much more powerful."

Why You Can Never Finish Anything And How to Finally Change It

Why You Can Never Finish Anything And How to Finally Change It | Personal Development | Scoop.it

The law of inertia tells us a body in motion stays in motion. And the same goes for projects, creative ideas, daily tasks, half-written emails, and that thing you stopped working on to read this article. When you interrupt a task, it can be difficult to pick it up again.

 

And we are interrupted nearly every three minutes, according to Gloria Mark, professor of informatics at University of California, Irvine. What's telling is that roughly half those interruptions are self-imposed.

 

The result: When you're working on something without a clear deadline, seeing it through to its end can be a huge challenge.

What do you write down? For most of us, writing consists of emails, task lists, and perhaps the odd work project. However, making time to write down certain things, such as our daily experiences, our goals, and our mental clutter can change the way we live our lives.

What Gets in the Way of Listening

What Gets in the Way of Listening | Personal Development | Scoop.it

As your role grows in scale and influence, so too must your ability to listen. But listening is one of the toughest skills to master — and requires uncovering deeper barriers within oneself.

 

While tactically there are many ways to strengthen your listening skills, you must focus on the deeper, internal issues at stake to really improve. Listening is a skill that enables you to align people, decisions, and agendas. You cannot have leadership presence without hearing what others have to say.

Lisa Armstrong's curator insight, February 21, 3:03 AM

Hi folks, as discussed during our workshop for this week, I will not be on campus next Wednesday and so here is your article and your review questions for Week 4.

 

Take a look at this article and then complete the following questions:

 

1. From this article are there any hints and or tips that you want to incorporate to enhance your productivity?


2. To support you in enhancing your personal productivity, what examples of business technology are you currently using that could be used more effectively?

 

3. What other examples of business technology could you employ to enhance your personal productivity?

 

4. What are the examples or situations where business technology distracts you or negatively impacts your personal productivity?

 

 This YouTube clip may provide further insight into using business technology to enhance your productivity in your business:

 

 http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=sddJvGAtZEg

 

And for the unit we usually work on after the break, the WHS unit, you can complete the following questions as review in preparation for next week's activity-

 

What is the name of the legislation that we need to comply in terms of WHS in the workplace?Is this legislation commonwealth or state legislation?Who is the government agency in NSW that supports compliance of this legislation?What section of the Act outlines the 'primary duty of care' responsibilities we have as a business manager/business owner?What does the 'primary duty in care' mean?What do you believe the 'PCBU' may have to do to meet its duty of care?Who are the "officers" in your workplace? What might they have to do to show they are using 'due diligence'?Where would you find information to assist in doing what would be considered to be 'reasonably practicable'?

 

We have already covered quite a few of these aspects of WHS during our learning session. Reviewing the questions on WHS, as above, will be good preparation for next week's activity.

 

I look forward to working with you then.

 

Have a good week!

It is so easy to blame others, to blame life and circumstances … we hardly want to take responsibility for our actions and for our situation. So often people excuse own problems via other people and life.

 

There are three kind of categories:

The Hang-Ups – People who blame life and outer circumstances for their problems

The Bang-Ups – People who blame past personal problems and hurts

The Gang-Ups – People who blame other people for hindering them
