Introverts at Work: Why You Withdraw and One Way to Cope

Introverts at Work: Why You Withdraw and One Way to Cope | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Understanding how companies can spark introversion can help create conversations that move from protection to innovation.

donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): To foster sharing, it’s important to foster connections with others and remind one another that we’re more alike than we think. To do just that, try to find five things in common with co-workers, people you disagree with or even people you’re meeting for the first time. You can do this formally, in small groups to ‘break the ice,’ or on your own, when your courage to connect is low. Go beyond the obvious – things people can see, such as hair color or eye color. But instead look for answers for something beyond the surface, likes and dislikes you both might share.

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice

What Happens When You Put Aside Your Ego And Take Your Mentors' Advice | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it

You are a twentysomething entrepreneur ready to launch a new business and your emotions are running wild. You're frightened, intimated, and stressed, but at the same time you're enthusiastic and confident about what the future holds.

 

At this point, it's time to step back and listen to those who have been in the same situation.

 

It would be a foolish mistake and a missed opportunity not to value the advice, experience, and knowledge a mentor can offer. Put your ego aside; be a sponge and soak up as much wisdom as possible.

I was in this exact position prior to launching SDC Nutrition Inc. I was confident and probably a little too self-assured, but I knew I had to set aside my ego to listen and absorb as much invaluable advice as possible from my advisers.

(From the article): Whether you're an established entrepreneur or fresh to the world of entrepreneurship, you should never hesitate to ask for advice from your mentors. Their expertise and perspective may be the knowledge needed to help you and your business succeed and prosper for many years to come.

How to Deal With a Toxic Boss or Co-Worker

How to Deal With a Toxic Boss or Co-Worker | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Are you getting pushed around by a colleague or supervisor? Here are five ways to handle a toxic co-worker or boss.

Via Barb Jemmott
donhornsby's insight:

(From article): Should you stay or go? If your health, personal life, and capacity to perform your work is suffering, seriously consider your future. Is the bully likely to leave? Can you transfer, job exchange, or remove yourself from the bully’s trajectory?

 

Don’t shrug off the pain, humiliation, and loss of job satisfaction that a bully can cause. If all else fails, look for another job. Your health and happiness are more important than “sticking it out.”

The article itself is an interesting read. The comments, however, give another real life look at the world of work.

Work is a Four-Letter Word

Work is a Four-Letter Word | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
I can hear the jokes already and most of them are not politically correct. As we get ready to enter a holiday proclaimed as LABOR Day, we should look at work.

Via Barb Jemmott
donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): The critical question becomes: how do you turn a “job’ into a “work”—into something that gives you more than a paycheck? No, you might not be able to alter the corporate strategic plan, paint the garbage truck peppermint pink or change a boss from a toad to a prince. But, there are specific action items you can take within your sphere of influence. Too often, we expect management to lead us in career directions, to provide us with recognition, to make “it” a better place. It’s like a marriage: there is responsibility on both sides.
