Five Apps That Will Increase Your Productivity | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

The 4 Ways You Can Use Body Language To Influence Success

The 4 Ways You Can Use Body Language To Influence Success | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it
If you see someone frowning, head bowed, shoulders slumped, it’s a fair bet they’re feeling low in confidence. But which came first: the slumped shoulders or the bad mood? 

Your body language doesn’t merely reflect your emotions, it’s often the cause. By learning some of the principal ways that your own posture, gestures, facial expression and even tone of voice affect your mind, you will be more aware of the factors influencing your mood, and give yourself an edge in presentations and negotiations.

Leadership requires communication using every skill and technique to reinforce your message -- and body language makes all the difference in helping your message connect with your people (or not).

On the Persistence of Bad Luck (and Good)

On the Persistence of Bad Luck (and Good) | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

We’ve all had the experience—over and over all the time. You go down to the street to wait for the bus (the train, the subway, the boat); you know that buses come roughly every 10 minutes, so you expect to wait about 5 minutes (arriving, on average, in the middle of the between-buses interval). But in fact, we all know that almost always you have to wait longer than that! Is this an illusion we’ve developed over the centuries because we believe in the “persistence of bad luck,” or is it, perhaps, something real?

 

It is, in fact, a real phenomenon, and this result can even be proved mathematically. Because you arrived after the last bus has left, your overall waiting time is, on average, longer than half the average interval of 10 minutes.

Some kinds of bad luck, like long waits for buses, can be proved mathematically - and the same is true for some of our good fortunes as well.

Customer Personas 101: The Competitive Persona

Customer Personas 101: The Competitive Persona | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

In his landmark book How To Win Friends And Influence People, published in 1936, Dale Carnegie used fishing as a metaphor for persuading people to take the action you want them to. He mentioned that he loved strawberries and cream, but that fish prefer worms.

 

He didn’t try to catch fish with strawberries and cream, he didn’t call the fish stupid because they preferred worms, he simply used worms when he went fishing.

 

When you and I are trying to “catch” customers, if we are going to be successful, we won’t try to lure them with what we want, we’ll attract them with the “bait” they want, that they find appealing. What appeals to us in this situation is irrelevant.

 

Accurately developed customer personas will help you “lure” more prospects into buying your product, if you use them properly in your marketing. By tailoring your message specifically to the persona, you can powerfully use one of the most effective copywriting techniques available – writing to “an audience of one”....

How to be More Productive? Multitasking Paradox and Attention Deficit

How to be More Productive? Multitasking Paradox and Attention Deficit | RMStaples Topics | Scoop.it

 

What is one of the invaluable things today that everyone strives for to get from you? To my mind, it is your Attention..  Commercials aimed to get attention of consumers, governments – for voters, international authorities etc, businesses – for stakeholders etc..

“The more I allow myself to be seduced by distraction, the more distractible I become”.  Tony Schwartz, President and CEO of The Energy Project.

 

It is getting more and more difficult to grant longer attention to the issues or hobbies you’d prefer to do. Still we need somehow to cope to keep afloat. And moreover, we don’t need only to cope, but to time-manage, prioritise, and be on top of the follow-up.

 

Thus, we usually decide and/or are forced to multitask as a solution. Multitasking is a very well promoted skill as one that saves time and logically will lead to more productivity. However, the recent study by Harvard Business Review revealed directly the opposite, so-called ‘The Multitasking Paradox’.
