How to Boldly Face Your Fear of Criticism

How to Boldly Face Your Fear of Criticism | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Many of my clients deal with a fear of criticism. I see it in several aspects of their lives. At work, people fear criticism from their managers and colleagues, so they keep quiet and don't share their opinions. They play it safe. At home, people fear that they'll be criticized by their spouse or partner, so they don't speak their mind. They back down when they sense conflict. In friendships, people often don't have boundaries because they fear that establishing them would lead to criticism or that they would be viewed as selfish.

 

Whatever the setting, it's this fear that keeps people stuck. For example, by not speaking up and not sharing your ideas, you'll never advance. People won't know your thoughts and will have no reason to recognize your worth and promote you.

Stop This One Bad Habit and You’ll Increase Productivity 40 Percent

Stop This One Bad Habit and You’ll Increase Productivity 40 Percent | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

You know that multitasking is a bad idea. You may even know that frequent multitasking shrinks your brain and lowers your IQ. But did you know that, far from saving you time, multitasking cuts your productivity by a whopping 40 percent?

That frightening number comes from Devora Zack, CEO of Only Connect Consulting, and author most recently of Singletasking: Get More Done--One Thing at a Time. In fact, she notes, there's actually no such thing as multitasking. You may think you're taking part in a conference call, writing a report, and texting with your spouse all at the same time, but what your brain is actually doing is switching non-stop among these different activities. That's costing you both efficiency and brain cells.

The problem is, like many things, multitasking may be bad for you but it feels really good. That's because as you switch from task to task, your brain reacts to the feeling of newness with a jolt of dopamine--the same brain chemical that causes heroin addiction.

Fortunately, Zack says, you can get off the multitasking treadmill, and regain your efficiency, not to mention the IQ points you may have lost. Here's how.

I very strongly agree with the claims of the writer of the above article and hope that all of us can agree that one should contentrate and focus on one task at a time, and not try to work on many!

This Is How to Stop Being a Control Freak

This Is How to Stop Being a Control Freak | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

You might not like to call yourself a control freak but you sure do like to know where events are going and feel that you have a handle on all the eventualities. Generally, this isn't a bad way to operate, but if the description above sounds like you, you're also no doubt aware of the downsides this sort of personality.

Try as hard as you like, life will still serve up surprises and frustrate your constant desire to be in control. And that can be stressful. So is there a better way? If you're prone to keeping a firm hand on events, can you adjust your thinking to be less stressed when you sense control, as it inevitably does, faltering?

New research out of Johns Hopkins University Carey Business School and Wake Forest University suggests you can. The study compared the effects on mood and well being of two approaches to uncertainty called "primary" and "secondary" control.

You would think it would be clear that any business’s most valuable workers aren’t some kind of uniform game pieces, human checkers that can be swayed, swapped, motivated and moved around the board at will. But this fact of life is apparently not obvious to millions of managers at every level in organizations of all sizes.

Slow the 'Revolving Door' of Turnover: Four Steps to an Employee Care Strategy

Slow the 'Revolving Door' of Turnover: Four Steps to an Employee Care Strategy | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

All organizations, even those currently enjoying low turnover, cannot afford to rest on their laurels. Experts warn that despite rising slightly for the past decade to the current average of 4.6 years per person/per organization*, employee tenure will begin to wane in the future as the job market continues its recovery and more Millennials enter the workforce.

 

So, how can an organization increase employee retention and slow the “revolving door” of turnover? We explore this topic in great detail in our professional development course that examines employee engagement through the lens of Disney Culture. But, for the purposes of this blog, we offer this advice: Leaders should start by asking the question “Beyond a paycheck, what do my employees value?”

9 Great Leadership Habits That Anyone Can Master | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

One of the big questions in business is this: Are great leaders born that way, or do they practice a set of habits that anyone can learn and practice? The current thinking is that leadership is a set of habits that can be learned by anyone. The more consistent you are in living and applying these habits, the better leader you will become.

There are plenty of possible habits you can adopt to become a great leader, but here are 9 that will get you far along your own personal leadership journey.

5 Fail Safe Questions for Creating Intentional Leadership

5 Fail Safe Questions for Creating Intentional Leadership | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Recently I helped a client get ready for an intense conversation with his team. There'd been some big stuff happening in their division, not all of it great. He had a "state of the union" to deliver as well as some requests. His concern was that if he didn't handle it well, he'd create a mess, not have any clean next steps, waste time, and ultimately demoralize the team. He was nervous.

My good friend was having a challenge with her son. There'd been tension for a while and she sensed he'd been dishonest with her. They needed a heart to heart. Her concern was that if she didn't handle it well, she'd create a mess, alienate him, and create even more resistance between them moving forward.

In another land, my colleague's team was rockin' it and he wanted to do something awesome for them. His concern was he wouldn't honor them well enough.

I today am wrapping up a move, throwing my daughter a birthday party, working with clients, and writing to you. I want to make sure that I'm productive AND that everyone feels honored and seen.

Four scenarios -- I'll bet you can plug yourself into at least 3 of them, if not all.

So what to do?

Don't Fail Your Employees:  Why Professional Development Training Is Critical | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Although many factors contribute to a negative employee culture, including poor management, lack of advancement opportunity, low pay, and other factors, there is another strong correlation: how well people are trained to do their jobs. It turns out, if people feel well-prepared and well-equipped to succeed in their roles, that feeling improves their morale.

 

The problem? Companies select and hire people, but then underinvest in or significantly underestimate-;the amount of professional development training necessary to help employees develop their personal skills and exhibit the organization’s desired behaviors.

5 Lessons You Learn Your First Year at Harvard Business School

5 Lessons You Learn Your First Year at Harvard Business School | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Is getting an MBA worth it? It's a fraught question with passionately argued cases on both sides of the debate. But whether you think a stint at a top-tier business school is overpriced and creativity dulling or a golden ticket to success, everyone would have to agree that getting the knowledge of an MBA without the huge price tag or two-year time commitment is a great deal.

Which makes a recent Medium post by Ellen Chisa a must read who for anyone who is unlikely to make it over to Boston to attend HBS any time soon.

A current student, Chisa generously walks readers through the ten courses every first-year MBA student must take and reveals the most mind-blowing insight she took away from each. Some of her course descriptions will be of interest only to those in certain industries or roles, while others resist summarizing (but are still well worth a read in full). Here, however, are those that can be boiled down for entrepreneurs, along with several case studies (purchase required) that Chisa recommends if you want to do further reading.

How The Most Creative People In Business Generate New Ideas

How The Most Creative People In Business Generate New Ideas | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

The 100 people on 2015's Most Creative People in Business list have achieved impressive breakthroughs across a wide swath of industries: finding a possible cure for Ebola, using drone technology to help save endangered animals, modeling jet engines with 3-D printers.

 

None of these breakthroughs came from resting easy on outdated ideas or settling into familiar ruts. And yet, even this illustrious group admits to getting stuck and actively seeking grist for the mill. So we put the following question to the group: Where or from whom do you seek out inspiration? What do you do when you're in a rut? And most importantly, how do you keep new ideas flowing? Here's what some of them had to say—if you try them out yourself, one each day of the work week, you'll have almost a month of options to help spark some creative new ideas of your own.

5 Things Fighter Pilots Know About Performance Under Pressure

5 Things Fighter Pilots Know About Performance Under Pressure | Small Business Marketing | Scoop.it

Forget about perfect information.


Lohrenz says that, as a pilot, there is just way too much information coming in for it all to be processed perfectly, or even well. When she was flying, there could be three different people speaking to her via radio, all at once. There were 42 distinct beeps and buzzers that could go off in the cockpit, each indicating something different. She had literally hundreds of knobs and dials to deal with.

 

And while flying at the speed of sound, her body would be exposed to eight times the force of gravity, draining the blood from her head and upper extremities and causing her toenails to feel as if they were about to pop off.

 

In short: These were not optimal conditions for decision making. The rule of thumb, Lohrenz says, was that 80 percent was good enough. If you were 80 percent certain of something, you did it.
