Confirmation Bias: Why You Should Seek Out Disconfirming Evidence

Confirmation Bias: Why You Should Seek Out Disconfirming Evidence | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
In The Case for Motivated Reasoning, Ziva Kunda wrote “we give special weight to information that allows us to come to the conclusion we want to reach.” Accepting information which confirms our beliefs is easy and requires little mental energy. Yet contradicting information causes us to shy away, grasping for a reason to discard it.

In The Little Book of Stupidity, Sia Mohajer wrote:

The confirmation bias is so fundamental to your development and your reality that you might not even realize it is happening. We look for evidence that supports our beliefs and opinions about the world but excludes those that run contrary to our own… In an attempt to simplify the world and make it conform to our expectations, we have been blessed with the gift of cognitive biases.

Confirmation bias distorts our judgement, as this poem by Shannon L. Adler illustrates:

Read it with sorrow and you will feel hate.
Read it with anger and you will feel vengeful.
Read it with paranoia and you will feel confusion.
Read it with empathy and you will feel compassion.
Read it with love and you will feel flattery.
Read it with hope and you will feel positive.
Read it with humor and you will feel joy.
Read it without bias and you will feel peace.
Do not read it at all and you will not feel a thing.

Learning to say "no" is not as simple as it may seem. Pretty often, our colleagues ask us to do the job that is not our priority. Instead of spending time and energy on the tasks that are not in your priority, you can fulfill the job that is more worthy of your time and skills.

3 Strategies To Accept Positive Feedback And Own Your Successes

3 Strategies To Accept Positive Feedback And Own Your Successes | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Let's call this call this curator friend Cynthia. Cynthia wrote back, “Two other curators worked with me on this (and may join us!), so I can’t take full credit.” She asked that I instead reference her with the significantly less exciting descriptor, “one of the curators of this exhibition." She was understandably hesitant to get all the credit and wanted to make clear that there were other people involved with the exhibition. While accurate, the new version was far less descriptive and complimentary than what I’d suggested.

Feel familiar? The balancing act women navigate surrounding self promotion can be exhausting.

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal

To Be An Effective Leader Keep A Leadership Journal | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Teddy Roosevelt did it. Harry Truman did it. Want to be an outstanding leader? Keep a leadership journal. As part of my executive coaching work, one of the most effective tools I recommend that powers up the coaching process is a leadership journal.  The exercise of leadership is not unlike a sport you play. When you review your actions in the field you learn what worked, what didn’t, and adjust along the way. Leadership guru Peter Drucker said: “ Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action. ”

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive 

The Emotionally Intelligent Person’s Guide To Being Persuasive  | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

You’re a pretty rational person, or so you think: You’re often good at thinking logically and keeping your feelings out of it, right?

Wrong. (Sorry!) It wasn’t long ago that people believed emotions and logic were two completely separate things, operating independently of one another. But breakthroughs in brain science have made it clear that that’s far from true. It turns out that our brains are incapable of making fully unemotional decisions. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though. In fact, you can use that cognitive reality in your favor to build relationships, network, and gain influence.

These ridiculously simple brain hacks can subtly encourage people to decide in your favor.

Vanessa Ong Li Wen's curator insight, March 19, 12:14 PM
I agree that at times, we need to angle our argument that targets one’s emotional capacity so as to strengthen the message we are trying to convey and be more persuasive. Although logic is an important factor in allowing people to understand what you are trying to say, simply informing them and convincing them are two separate matters. In essence, using positive emotions to encourage people to believe in you is the right way to go. Once they feel that they have established the connection with you, they will naturally be more inclined to believe whatever it is you are trying to say.

3 Strategies to Position Yourself as Your Boss’s Trusted Ally 

3 Strategies to Position Yourself as Your Boss’s Trusted Ally  | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
For those looking to really excel in the workplace, it’s about more than simply being a good worker or a contributing member of the team. If you truly want to get ahead, positioning yourself as a trusted ally for your boss is a great way to start.

To be clear: Aligning yourself with the boss doesn’t mean being disloyal to your colleagues. The idea isn’t that you’ll be some kind of spy, reporting back to leadership about the inner machinations of your team.

It simply means that you’re positioning yourself as a partner, someone who is in tune with the boss’s needs and concerns, and able to offer a valuable perspective as a confidant. Think of it as the kind of relationship that exists between a President and Vice President. The President is the one with ultimate authority, but the VP is a sounding board and advisor.

Now, the question is: How do you become a trusted ally when you’re not necessarily the official “second-in-command”? Here are some steps you can take, no matter what your position.

We all have to deal with difficult conversations whether it be professionally or personally. Some will run and avoid confronting the conflict and others jump in which can also be dangerous. Nice little article to get you thinking and prepared when conflict rears it's head. I cover conflict within my "Billing Manager" training, if you can follow the stages of SOCS (Situation, Options, Consequences & Solution) it will reduce the negativity in conflict situations and get you to enhance your listening skills enabling you both to come through the other side smiling!!

You cant always change people, but you can change yourself, people might pick up on your actions to start looking at life i a different light. If those people don't follow maybe you need to change who you surround yourself with. Often we become who we surround ourself, so we need to put ourself first and make the first step.

To stay competitive, we need to get comfortable making difficult, complicated, higher-order decisions more regularly—until we’ve achieved what Harvard psychologist Robert Kegan refers to as “immunity to change.”

Sound daunting? Hopeless, even? Don’t fret. It isn’t about turning yourself into a superhuman or somehow making yourself “smarter.” It simply means tapping into the potential that your mind is already hardwired to possess. Here’s how.

“Keeping a personal journal a daily in-depth analysis and evaluation of your experiences is a high-leverage activity that increases self-awareness and enhances all the endowments and the synergy among them.” — Stephen R. Covey
Journaling daily is the most potent and powerful keystone habit you can acquire. If done correctly, you will show up better in every area of your life — every area! Without question, journaling has by far been the number one factor to everything I’ve done well in my life.
The problem is, most people have tried and failed at journaling several times. It’s something you know you should do, but can never seem to pin down.

How to Resolve Workplace Conflict

How to Resolve Workplace Conflict | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
In a 2012 study conducted by the American Psychological Association, 65 percent of Americans cited work as a top source of stress. The study cites a number stress sources, ranging from excessive workload to lack of social support. Many of the sources are rooted in conflict situations.

Whether at home or at work, conflict can leave us feeling frustrated, unmotivated and unfocused. We bring our work troubles home and our home troubles to work, with little opportunity (or time) to sort out tensions.

Collaborative environments, where individuals feel free to vigorously debate and challenge ideas, rather than “go along to get along,” are within reach. We typically think our ability to work without conflict depends on how others treat us, but Arbinger’s work suggests something different: our ability to cut through conflict depends on how we see others. The structure, the nature of real collaboration, is the same at home, at work, or in our communities. And it all begins with mindset.
