Thanks Robin, I have to admit I caught myself many times doing this when I started using leadership development tools and trying to improve the trust level with my staff members. As anyone can lead, we can all challenge our own assumptions and help develop trust with others. When we do this, the process of influencing positive change becomes much easier.

Great information for understanding conflict and use it for the writer's advantage.

The Benefits of Optimism Are Real

The Benefits of Optimism Are Real | Soul Speech | Scoop.it

A positive outlook is the most important predictor of resilience. It's not just Hollywood magic. Silver Linings Playbook, Life of Pi and some real research:

 

James Pennebaker, a psychological researcher at the University of Texas in Austin, has found that people who find meaning in adversity are ultimately healthier in the long run than those who do not. In a study, he asked people to write about the darkest, most traumatic experience of their lives for four days in a row for a period of 15 minutes each day.

Analyzing their writing, Pennebaker noticed that the people who benefited most from the exercise were trying to derive meaning from the trauma. They were probing into the causes and consequences of the adversity and, as a result, eventually grew wiser about it. A year later, their medical records showed that the meaning-makers went to the doctor and hospital fewer times than people in the control condition, who wrote about a non-traumatic event.

Negative Emotions are Key to Well-Being

Negative Emotions are Key to Well-Being | Soul Speech | Scoop.it

Feeling sad, mad, critical or otherwise awful? Surprise: negative emotions are essential for mental health.

 

Anger and sadness are an important part of life, and new research shows that experiencing and accepting such emotions are vital to our mental health. Attempting to suppress thoughts can backfire and even diminish our sense of contentment.

 

Instead of backing away from negative emotions, accept them. Acknowledge how you are feeling without rushing to change your emotional state. Many people find it helpful to breathe slowly and deeply while learning to tolerate strong feelings or to imagine the feelings as floating clouds, as a reminder that they will pass. I often tell my clients that a thought is just a thought and a feeling just a feeling, nothing more.

A lot of insight in those so called negative emotions. When they are truly heard, they tend to integrate better, and become harmonious.
Maria Teresa Frezet terapeuta olistica's curator insight, June 7, 2013 3:52 PM

The point is always the same... If we refuse something, this comes back even bigger! Whike if we accept we are made of different parts (emotions), without putting an excessive judgment on it, we will soon experience a real balance and a steady well-being!

We learn so much about ourselves when we are aware and allow our negative emotions with a sense of curiousity. Learning to walk alongside instead of up against our negative emotion is important to our emotional health.

Tests and analysis to determine the best display selection techniques for a computer-aided text-manipulation system reveal that the choice does not hinge on the inherent differences in target-selection speed and accuracy between the different selection devices. Of more importance are such factors as the mix of other operations required of the select-operation hand, the ease of getting the hand to and gaining control of a given selection device, or the fatique effects of its associated operating posture. Besides a light pen, several cursor-controlling devices were tested, including a joystick and an SRI-developed device known as a "mouse." The study was aimed directly at finding the best display selection means for our own text-manipulation system but generalizations applicable to other types of on-line systems were derived.

Absolutely we ask the wrong questions and at every level of education. We use an outdated, outmoded model which is run by people who are furthest removed from the classroom.

3 Paths Toward A More Creative Life

3 Paths Toward A More Creative Life | Soul Speech | Scoop.it

Creativity is in such demand today that when we apply for jobs, when we join organizations, or when we just meet other people, we are asked to present our creative selves. But we can’t do that unless we understand the nature of our own creativity, locate the sources of our originality, and have a language that explains our work. If you are one of the growing number of “creatives,” or want to become one, you need to lead a creative life.

The Compassionate Mind — Why it’s healthy and how it spreads

The Compassionate Mind — Why it’s healthy and how it spreads | Soul Speech | Scoop.it

The reason a compassionate lifestyle leads to greater psychological well-being may be explained by the fact that the act of giving appears to be as pleasurable, if not more so, as the act of receiving.

 

Another way in which a compassionate lifestyle may improve longevity is that it may serve as a buffer against stress.

 

Yet another reason compassion may boost our well-being is that it can help broaden our perspective beyond ourselves.

 

Finally, one additional way in which compassion may boost our well-being is by increasing a sense of connection to others.

 

Given the importance of compassion in our world today, and a growing body of evidence about the benefits of compassion for health and well-being, this field is bound to generate more interest and hopefully impact our community at large.

Very interesting!!! And when you feel compassion through the heart, all of a sudden you understand that you are the creator of everything you experience!

 

And, as a consequence, you automatically Thank for what has allowed you to learn things you had to learn for your own evolution!!!
