How to Find Your Power—and Avoid Abusing It

How to Find Your Power—and Avoid Abusing It | #I Want Self Improvement! | Scoop.it

In an adaptation from his new book, Dacher Keltner explains the secret to gaining and keeping power: focus on the good of others.


Whereas the Machiavellian approach to power assumes that individuals grab it through coercive force, strategic deception, and the undermining of others, the science finds that power is not grabbed but is given to individuals by groups.


What this means is that your ability to make a difference in the world—your power, as I define it—is shaped by what other people think of you. Your capacity to alter the state of others depends on their trust in you. Your ability to empower others depends on their willingness to be influenced by you. Your power is constructed in the judgments and actions of others. When they grant you power, they increase your ability to make their lives better—or worse.

Simon Sinek on How to Get People to Follow You - Inside Quest

Simon’s lessons on leadership ring true, not only because he spent the better part of a decade systematically studying leaders, but because his transition from marketing consultant to evangelist for global change came as a result of a personal crisis. Having fallen out of love with the very company he created, he turned a bout with depression into a revolution of the self that has helped him become one of the most impactful voices in the world of leadership. His TED Talk on "How Great Leaders Inspire Action" is the third most viewed talk of all time on Ted.com.

Simon Sinek is also the two-time, best-selling author of "Start With Why," and "Leaders Eat Last," whose ideology has captured the imagination of some of the most important leaders of our time, including the heads of many Fortune 500 companies, the US Government, multiple branches of the military, and the United Nations. This man’s vision for the future of leadership is inspiring, and he shares his insights on this episode of Inside Quest.

7 Habits That Force Your Mind to Stop Worrying

7 Habits That Force Your Mind to Stop Worrying | #I Want Self Improvement! | Scoop.it

Worrying can get the better of almost anybody. Work stresses, personal concerns, and sometimes even irrational thoughts can seep into your mind and interfere with your ability to concentrate on ordinary tasks. Unfortunately, stopping those worries isn't easy--there's no "off switch" that can shut your worried thoughts down. However, there are a handful of habits that, once integrated into your life, can force your worries to leave and free up your mind to focus on more positive, productive things.

BT CEO: 'It's possible that 80% of the jobs people do today won't exist in the future'

BT CEO: 'It's possible that 80% of the jobs people do today won't exist in the future' | #I Want Self Improvement! | Scoop.it
"Frankly, it's quite possible that 80% of the jobs that people do today won't exist in the future. It's not quite clear where we go from here."

This is a big claim coming from a man whose company employees over 80,000 people. Stuart Gulliver, the CEO of HSBC, agreed with Patterson's point. HSBC employees over 265,000 people globally.

Gulliver, who was on the panel with Patterson, said: "It's unlikely that there will be the same number of jobs in today's skill set in five years time."

Okay this guy Gavin Peterson is saying that 80% of the jobs that we have right now won't exist in the feature and some people had their jobs right now might get replaced by robots and that's already happened I think at a pizza restaurant and i don't like the fact about that because people love making pizzas but now all these random robots come and the people might get angry but the people who put the robots don't care how people feel I don't like that.
Yeah so beware to stay alert that might will come soon.

What are the current 20% and what are the new 80%??? That's the question all college kids should be asking themselves.
Kim Flintoff's curator insight, October 31, 8:00 PM
If these claims are accurate then it really does beg us to reconsider what we prioritise in formal education.  What do qualifications mean?  

What should K-12 focus be - perhaps more about the learner than the subjects?

What are careers counsellors telling kids?
