Goal Setting Is Only Half The Picture

Goal Setting Is Only Half The Picture | Self-development | Scoop.it
"What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve" Napoleon Hill in his classic book “Think and Grow Rich”1.This foundation quote from the great man himself is so right, and on so many levels. If your own self-concept means that you can only deal with a 10% pay rise before encroaching on your belief and understanding of what it would mean to have more. More than that figure and you will shy away from any opportunity that presents itself. What you have to work on, and the w

Setting Social Media Goals: If It’s Not Painful, You’re Not Doing it Right | Simply Measured | Self-development | Scoop.it
“Pick a goal and do what it takes to hit it.” I had a sales manager once who lived by this phrase, and I always hated it. There’s a common misconception that setting a goal is simple; it’s hitting it that’s the tough part.
Lee Werrell's insight:

Like everything else in life - planning is essential. If you don't know how you are going to get to your goals, you can waste a lot of time trying pointless exercises.

How Your MBTI Personality Type Can Affect Your Career Choices

How Your MBTI Personality Type Can Affect Your Career Choices | Self-development | Scoop.it

Developed in the 1960s by mother daughter pair, Katherine Cook Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myer, the Myer-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is based on theories by prominent psychologist, Dr Carl Gustav Jung. Each year, more than 1.5 million MBTI personality tests are conducted across different individuals to help them explore various goals.

 

It’s usually employed by companies such as Ernst & Young to assess the job-fit of a potential candidate, improve their communications with their colleagues and to enhance team unity in an organization. This is achieved by increasing one’s self-awareness of his or her strengths and weaknesses through personality type identification.

Here Are 10 Simple Body Language Tips That Will Boost Your Career

Here Are 10 Simple Body Language Tips That Will Boost Your Career | Self-development | Scoop.it

Body language is one of the most important and powerful types of communication in the history of the world. A wink conveys an air of mysticism and charm, a simple raised hand in front of your face tells everyone that you are not going to put up with what is happening anymore, and a leg popped behind you with your head tilted back is the international symbol for glee and whimsy.

How you present yourself physically at work can truly help (or hinder) your career. According to a study led by Amy J.C. Cuddy (@amyjccuddy), an associate professor of business administration at Harvard Business School, standing in a power pose for a few minutes before an interview can literally help you get the job. Watch Cuddy’s excellent TED Talk on power poses here. According to Cuddy, power posing also increases people’s tolerance for risk and pain, and their ability to think abstractly.

So what are some simple tricks you can do to make yourself a better negotiator, make a difficult task easier, and encourage more collaboration? We talked with  Dr.Carol Kinsey Goman, the author of 12 books including The Silent Language of Leaders: How Body Language Can Help—or Hurt—How You Lead, about her best body language workplace tips.

G is for… Goal-Setting

You’re considering going freelance or maybe you already are.  You’re driven, capable.  You’re probably pretty damn good at what you do.  (If you’re not, I suggest possibly rethinking the freelance thing!  Or, indeed, your whole career.)

 

Long story short, you most likely know a little something about goals.

With Flextime, Bosses Prefer Early Birds to Night Owls

With Flextime, Bosses Prefer Early Birds to Night Owls | Self-development | Scoop.it

Flextime programs have never been more popular than they are today. Google allows many employees to set their own hours. At Microsoft, many employees can choose when to start their day, as long as it’s between 9am and 11am. At the “Big Four” auditing firm KPMG, some 70 percent of employees work flexible hours.

 

Employees love these programs because they help them avoid compromises between home and at work. Yes, there are often boundaries within which a work day must begin and end, and at least some chunk of core hours that remain common across employees. But within those constraints, workers can schedule their office hours around the various other demands on their time, giving them greater control over their lives and allowing them to accomplish more. And because employees love the programs, companies have learned to love them, too.
