You're Wired to Be a Leader

You're Wired to Be a Leader | Positive Psychology News | Scoop.it

You were born with seven brain attributes for effective management. How much you turn the volume up or down depends on you--and what you want to accomplish.

 

Research tells us that there are seven brain attributes—thinking and behavioral tendencies—every leader naturally takes advantage of to a greater or lesser extent, and finds they’re effective to a greater or lesser extent depending on the traits of the individuals they interact with. These neural pathways are etched in the brain over many years:

 

1. Analytical thinking happens in the left hemisphere of the brain and is essential to making more objective, less biased decisions. As a leader, this is the function that helps you look at existing research and data, examine options, and question what will or will not work.

 

2. Structural thinking also takes place in the left part of the brain and ensures that you come up with a plan that is doable. It is the methodical, sequential process that helps maximize results, and minimize pitfalls.

 

3. Social thinking is a right-brain tendency that allows a leader to listen, build successful teams, relate to people, and develop and inspire others.

 

4. Conceptual thinking is right-brain, visionary thinking that jumpstarts innovation. Ideas that connect the dots and come out of left field can invigorate your organization.

 

5. Expressiveness is a behavior style you use to communicate your ideas. It affects how you relate to people and sets the course for the way you speak with others.

 

6. Assertiveness is a behavior style you use to put your ideas to work. An effective leader is assertive enough to make things happen, but not so assertive that others are stymied.

 

7. Flexibility is a behavior style you bring to the way you get things done. It determines not only your openness to other points of view, but also your ability to thrive in undefined (or very defined) situations.

New York Open Center Certificate in Positive Psychology

New York Open Center Certificate in Positive Psychology | Positive Psychology News | Scoop.it

Positive psychology (PP) is a new and rapidly growing field that demonstrates what individuals, organizations and communities need in order to flourish. Where traditional psychology focused on fixing what was wrong in a person, positive psychology aims to create more wellbeing, happiness and life satisfaction. While philosophers have long investigated the nature of happiness, it was not until 1998 that scientists coalesced to explore well-being through systematic and multi-faceted research. To date, thousands of PP studies have been conducted and papers published. However, there are few organizations training individuals in this fresh knowledge and innovative set of practices. The Open Center is therefore delighted to offer one of the first certificate programs in the country in both the theory and application of Positive Psychology. It is intended to benefit both individuals and those working with clients, organizations and communities.This 150-hour, 6-month program is designed around the model of Flourishing developed by Dr. Martin Seligman, founder of Positive Psychology, with an added emphasis on physical well-being. It consists of six modules focusing on Positivity, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, Achievement and Vitality (PERMA-V).

What If I Choose Wrong?

What If I Choose Wrong? | Positive Psychology News | Scoop.it

Man, I’ve heard that excuse soooo many times.

You’ve got multiple interests, ideas, projects, passions, products, job offers, blah, blah, blah. They all sound cool. All have serious potential, pluses, minuses, risks and rewards.

Which do I choose? And, oh my, what if I choose WRONG?!?!

I asked this question to world-renowned thought-leader, bazillion-time New York Times bestelling author and professional ruckus-maker, Seth Godin, in this week’s Good Life Project™. His answer made me smile, because it’s the same thing I often tell folks who come to me with the same question.

Drum roll…it doesn’t matter.

What’s more important is simply that you choose! As Seth shared, the only wrong choice is no choice. Because…
