Enjoy Dennis’ wisdom! – Bob Burg

Cure Impatience and Irritability for Leaders | Department oF Finance

Cure Impatience and Irritability for Leaders | Department oF Finance | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

Impatience and irritability with others do so much damage… subtle yet insidious.

Leaders, regardless of their level in the hierarchy, have gotten to that position because they were considered able to manage others to greater achievement. Have you met, or worked with someone where someone has risen to the level of their own incompetence? They may be able to manage others, but are they equipped to manage themselves?

Amy Melendez's insight:

From the article: 

 

Here’s the quick antidote to impatience and irritability: STOP….BREATHE….REGROUP!

 

That is your one and only line of defense and it needs to be practiced constantly, consistently, in every situation! That deep breath allows you to respond rather than react, and in that moment you can design your response with mindfulness, to the situation at hand and the unique individual involved.

 

In that moment you get to choose the leadership quality you’d like to adopt. Is it patience? Equanimity? Understanding? Lighten up with humor? Might you act as coach, and ask questions, which promote others problem-solving abilities?

Can You Use that Photo? Understanding Fair Use and What Photos Can and Can’t Be Used Legally on Your Blog | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it
According to MDG Advertising, 37% of Facebook users engage more fully with a post that has a photo included; and 67% of customers state that the quality of a product’s image helps them decide whether or not to purchase the product.

One of the reasons that sites like Pinterest have become so popular is that people find the images engaging. You’ve probably heard it said that a picture is “worth 1000 words”. This is true because humans are visually driven.

How to Quit Your Job and Start Your Own Business

How to Quit Your Job and Start Your Own Business | Building the Digital Business | Scoop.it

Identifying the right reasons for starting your business is extremely important in taking the first steps into entrepreneurship.

 

Before you quit your job to launch your startup, you need to first validate your idea. You need to know whether people actually want what you're building.

 

Quitting your job to build something that people don't want would be a foolish thing to do. So, the best way to do this would be to launch a side project while you're still in a job.
