Daniel Goleman on Focus: The Secret to High Performance and Fulfilment - YouTube | CPD for British International Schools (Non-teaching Staff) | Scoop.it

Psychologist Daniel Goleman shot to fame with his groundbreaking bestseller Emotional Intelligence.

 

The premise of the book, now widely accepted, is that raw intelligence alone is not a sure predictor of success in life.

 

A greater role is played by 'softer' skills such as self-control, self-motivation, empathy and good interpersonal relationships.

Get It Done! | #GrowthMindset #Character

Get It Done! | #GrowthMindset #Character | CPD for British International Schools (Non-teaching Staff) | Scoop.it
What happens when someone asks us to do something really tough? First, we try to get out of it. Right? Next, we complain that they’re asking the impossible. Then, we whine to our friends, “I’m having such a bad day” or “The world is unfair.” After we’ve exhausted every way to get out of the work . . . we take a break. (It’s exhausting.) When we return, we brainstorm excuses to cover our behind if things go south. And, when all else fails, and it usually does, we get down to work while talking to ourselves.

Contrast this mindset to a champion’s approach . . .

I can hear the coach saying, “If they’re bigger, be faster” “If they’re better, play up.” “If you’re hurt, walk it off and then get back in the game.” There’s no whining, no excuses, and certainly no second-guessing. The players are positive, they’re optimistic, and they’re entirely focused on winning. These are the trademarks of winners. They’ll do whatever it takes to win. They know they have to “get it done.”

Martyn Wiggett's insight:

Learning from direct experience can be more effective if coupled with reflection-that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.

 

Reflecting on what has been learned makes experience more productive.

 

Reflection builds one's confidence in the ability to achieve a goal (i.e., self-efficacy), which in turn translates into higher rates of learning.

Leaders Who Can Read Collective Emotions Are More Effective | Empathy | EQ

Leaders Who Can Read Collective Emotions Are More Effective | Empathy | EQ | CPD for British International Schools (Non-teaching Staff) | Scoop.it

Until now, there have been a variety of tools for managers who wish to measure the emotional cues of individuals, such as the Brief Affect Recognition Test to understand cross-cultural facial expressions. Facial expressions provide a wealth of reliable information about how others are making sense of the world around them, and allow us to tailor our responses to the individual in a one-on-one situation.

 

This represents one of the key measures of emotional intelligence, which evaluates how well individuals perceive and deal with affectively charged interpersonal situations.


Read more at http://knowledge.insead.edu/strategy/leaders-who-can-read-collective-emotions-are-more-effective-4002#VsZzWHkFKKeIo3ac.99But there are situations in which leaders have to deal with the emotions of large groups of people, not just those of one or a few individuals and most managers don’t have time to operate on a one-on-one basis all the time. Understanding the collective can help leaders respond effectively to the group as a whole. This happens in situations such as dealing with the collective anxiety of executives facing the news of corporate restructuring; or public authorities dealing with the collective anger of large groups of people in the streets; or politicians seeking to inspire large groups of people to win an election. Those with the skill to pick up on the subtle emotional cues of the collective can adapt accordingly and, according to our research, earn more respect as a result. So how can this ability to see the forest for the trees be applied by leaders?

TO GOD BE GLORY FOR ALL THINGS! FOR THE GREAT THING ABOUT GOD HE IS NOT MOVED BY EMOTIONS AND NEITHER ARE HIS BLESSING PROVIDED OR NOT BECAUSE OF THE SAME, BUT WE READ ABOUT THE GREAT PHAROAH IN THE BIBLE AND HOW GOD HAS A WAY OF DEALING WITH THE INTERPERSONAL SITUATIONS AND CIRCUMSTANCES OF THOSE HE LOVE AND IT WAS UP TO THEM WHAT THEY CHOSE TO DO WITH WHAT HE BLESSED THEM WITH EMOTIONAL AS IT WAS AND THE SAME GOES FOR US TODAY. EVEN AFTER PHAROAH LET GOD PEOPLE GO, HE TOOK ADVICE AND LISTENED TO A PERSON THAT WAS LOOKING OUT FOR HIMSELF AND WAS NOT CONCERNED ABOUT PHAROAH AND ALL HE HAD LOST AND BEEN THRU BECAUSE HE REFUSED TO OBEY GOD AND LET GOD'S PEOPLE GO. THE MAN WHISPERING THE WHAT YOU GONNA DO NOW HAD NO EMOTION OR CARE BUT FOR HIMSELF AS WHEN PHAROAH FREED THE ISREALITES IT WAS A GREAT LOSS IN SLAVE LABOR, DOLLARS AND ALL THAT FOR THAT MAN TO AND HE WAS NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT AT ALL! BUT WHAT PRICE DID PHAROAH PAY FOR TAKING ADVICE FROM A VOICE OF A MAN THAT COULD CARE LESS. HE RESENDED HIS WORD AND SENT HIS OFFICERS TO BRING THE ISREALITES BACK INTO  CAPTIVES AGAIN AS SLAVES AFTER HE FREED THEM. IN THE PROCESS OF DOING SO ALL THE OFFICERS  THE GREAT PHAROAH SENT OUT DIED IN BATTLE SO TO SPEAK. THAT IS WHY OBEDIENCE TO GOD IS IMPORTANT! THE ONES THAT LEADERS LEAD AND KNOW THEY ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO AND ITS ONLY ABOUT THE DOLLAR AND THEY COULD CARE LESS NOW THAT TAKES NO EMOTIONS AND EVEN JESUS SHOWED EMOTION TRUE HE NEVER SAID A MUMBLING WORD DURING HIS LEADERSHIP PROCESS OF GIVING HIS LIFE BECAUSE NO MN TOOK IT BUT WE OFTEN FORGET THE JESUS WEPT! HE CRIED FOR NO WRONG HE HAD DONE BUT BECAUSE HE TOOK ALL OF OURS AND PLACED IT UPON HIMSELF VOLUNTARILY BECAUSE HE DID NOT HAVE TO BUT CHOSE TO DO SO IN OBEDIENCE TO GOD NOW THATS LEADERSHIP WITH EMOTION THAT RESOLVED THE GREATEST PROBLEM THERE EVER WILL BE.  THANK YOU JESUS!

Desk exercises to help you survive the office - Daily Genius

Desk exercises to help you survive the office - Daily Genius | CPD for British International Schools (Non-teaching Staff) | Scoop.it

"We’re becoming a sedentary bunch. Even with increased flexible working practices, too many of us spend too long sitting at a desk working. Few of us seem to have physical work these days and while repetitious or hard physical work can create problems of its own, our lack of regular activity can lead to long-term health issues.

 

So, while this infographic, from OfficeVibe, veers towards the alarmist – a few exercises at your desk may just possibly save your life, but is more likely to simply make you feel better and more energised – but it will help you make the most of your time sat at a desk and mean that you’ll feel less hunched up and atrophied. Much of the same effect could be had by having a stand-up desk, but not everyone can afford or get one of these."

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | CPD for British International Schools (Non-teaching Staff) | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.
