Fake confidence until you make it! People - yes! Especially starting on the road to leadership, there are times when you may not feel like what you have to say is as important as those around you. Fake it until you make it. Confidence that is.

Connect, Then Lead

Connect, Then Lead | Personal Mastery for Executives | Scoop.it

Is it better to be loved or feared? Niccolò Machiavelli pondered that timeless conundrum 500 years ago and hedged his bets. “It may be answered that one should wish to be both,” he acknowledged, “but because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.”

Philippe Vallat's curator insight, July 4, 2013 2:39 AM

I disagree with following statement: "Gut instinct doesn't work either". If system 1 according to Kahneman is meant, it's ok. But there are experts intuition (needs to be trained in a specific context) and intuition itself defined as "direct perception of truth, fact, etc., independent of any reasoning process". Intuition DOES work, very effectively when coupled with sane reasoning.

David Hain's curator insight, July 4, 2013 3:02 AM

Kahneman's book, Thinking Fast and Slow, is amazing - and very persuasive.  Must read if the content here is of interest.

John Michel's curator insight, July 4, 2013 1:54 PM

We like to think the decisions we make are good ones, based on solid reasoning. And when you're in charge of a function or selecting leaders for a company, you need to believe that. Second-guessing every judgment can lead to paralysis. And in a state like that, nothing gets done. Yet research into decision making shows that everyone is prey to serious cognitive flaws.
