A research by Lois Tamirand Laura Finfer explored the relationship between the age of an executive and the coaching process or coaching outcomes. Their goal was to identify how executives in their thirties might differ from older executives when they receive the specialized attention of executive coaching.
They analyzed 72 executive-coaching engagements to evaluate the relationship of age to 4 variables: Responsiveness, Self-reflection, Nondefensiveness, and Degree of Change. 
Results indicate that the age group 30 to 39 was significantly lower on Self-reflection and Degree of Change compared with executives in the 40 to 49 and 50 to 59 age groups. In light of these findings, they recommend two approaches for those who manage, mentor, or coach younger executives to help them reach their full potential.

This Is How To Actually Work Smarter, Not Harder

This Is How To Actually Work Smarter, Not Harder | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Possibly no piece of productivity advice is more well-worn than the adage, “Work smarter, not harder.” Of course, the directive points to the fact that it’s not how many hours you put in at your desk that matters—it’s how you spend your time there. In other words, get results faster and you won’t be spending so many late nights at the office.

 

But what does it really mean to work smarter?

 

“It means figuring out better, faster ways to work,” says personal productivity expert and trainer Peggy Duncan. But before you enrol in a time management course or start playing “beat the clock” with your project list, consider these counterintuitive ways to get more done.

Want to Be Much Happier? Science Says Always Do Any 1 of These 8 Things

Want to Be Much Happier? Science Says Always Do Any 1 of These 8 Things | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

1. Learn something new, even if it's stressful: Mastering a new skill means more stress now but more happiness later.

 

If you are willing to push through a bit of added stress in the short term, you can experience huge gains in happiness for the long term.

 

So learn a new skill. Though you'll take on a bit more stress, research shows you'll be happier on an hourly, daily, and long-term basis.

 

The gains from this investment in time and energy were documented in a 2009 study published in the Journal of Happiness Studies. Participants who spent time on activities that increased their competency, met their need for autonomy, or helped them connect with others reported decreased happiness in the moment yet increased happiness on an hourly and daily basis.

 

The key, according to the study, is to choose the right new skill to master, challenge to undertake, or opportunity to get out of your comfort zone. The greatest increases in happiness come from learning a skill you choose, rather than one you think you should or feel forced to learn.

Something to consider for the wellbeing of our teams. 
Lucero D's curator insight, September 15, 8:42 AM
When we were first married my husband and I played a game for married couples with some long married friends.  One of the questions was, "How would you describe yourself in one word?", and your spouse had to choose the one to match yours in order to get a point in the game.   I don't remember all the choices, but rose and book were the two that stood out to me.  I recall hoping that my would know that I would instinctively choose book.  Not because I love to read or that I think I'm smarter than everyone else BUT because I LOVE to learn new things.  Thankfully, he didn't choose rose and we kicked the other couples butts!!!

I enjoy attempting to master new skills like making kombucha, learning to ferment vegetables, making bread, baking something new, learning about how to keep chickens, gardening difficult to grow flowers or vegetables, figuring out how to fix my bike by myself. . . You see, I'm not afraid to get myself dirty.  What my husband finds frustrating about these things is that though the habits become part of my regular routine I don't develop them to the point of perfection so I can make a business of it.  There is a very good reason for this.  I want to continue learning skills which will benefit my family and bring me joy and have the freedom to practice them without the stress of it becoming a burden.   At one time I wanted to have my own business.  Then I saw the reality of things. . . 

My husband has a cabinet shop.  Really that is a misnomer - he has a manufacturing facility.  He USED to be a cabinet maker.  He USED to enjoy making things out of wood and took pride is the work of his hands.  Now he is slave to his business.  His entire life is his business - keeping customers happy and people employed so the business can continue to grow.  He has employees who make boxes for his clients.  His hands rarely ever touch the materials with which he once so loved working.  What was once his creative outlet is now his living nightmare, his taskmaster, and the focus of all his attention.  

He has a wife who loves him and two beautiful, sweet, smart little girls who are growing so fast and he has little time to spend with them.  They'll be grown and gone before he knows it and he'll have missed it all.  Time will go by and I'll become more and more the stranger who is married to a house that he happens to sleep in.

How to Rediscover Your Inspiration at Work

How to Rediscover Your Inspiration at Work | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

When we’re inspired, our work hums. We have a sense of purpose, buoyed by the feeling that our talents are being put to good use. We’re doing what we should be doing. And then, just like that, inspiration evaporates. Perhaps a negative comment from your boss deflated you or you’re not excited about a particular assignment. Inspiration can be frustratingly fleeting and difficult to recover when lost. Even if you’re lucky enough to have a job you love, it’s common to go through lengthy periods where you need to dig deep to feel excited about your work.

7 Skills Managers Will Need In 2025

7 Skills Managers Will Need In 2025 | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

We all know that the work landscape is changing. The jobs that will be in demand are shifting as more are automated by artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robots. Teams are becoming more disparate and globalization has added new collaboration challenges. At the same time, more millennials are taking on management roles, and even our work spaces will undergo changes between now and 2025.

 

“Change will be happening so quickly that 50% of the occupations that exist today will not exist 10 years from now. So we’re going to be living in an environment that is extremely adaptable and changing all the time,” says Liz Bentley, the founder of Liz Bentley Associates, a leadership development consulting firm.

There’s a bright side to stress – World Economic Forum – Medium | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
Stress can make us better human beings. But it also it can also hamper our judgement. That’s the conclusion of an experiment conducted by scientists at the University of Vienna.
The study, published in the journal Social, Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience, looked at what happens in the brain when people who are highly stressed try to empathize with others.
It found that they showed increased empathy towards others and wanted to help them more, but that stress skewed their judgement.

How to Make the Most of Your Workday

How to Make the Most of Your Workday | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
When you multitask, you tend to make more mistakes. When you toggle back and forth between tasks, the neural networks of your brain must backtrack to figure out where they left off and then reconfigure, Dr. Miller said. That extra activity causes you to slow down, and errors become more likely.

“People are much more efficient if they monotask,” he said.

Trying to multitask also impedes creativity, he said. Truly innovative thinking arises when we allow our brains to follow a logical path of associated thoughts and ideas, and this is more likely when we can focus on a single mental pathway for an extended period.


The brain is like a muscle: It becomes stronger with use, Dr. Miller said. As with physical exercise, the more we strengthen our mental connections by focusing on one task to the exclusion of all others, the better we can perform.

What “Facilitation” Really Means And Why It’s Key To The Future Of Work

What “Facilitation” Really Means And Why It’s Key To The Future Of Work | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

What comes to mind when you hear the term “facilitator”? A task manager hogging airspace up at the front of the room? Or thoughts like, “Ugh–okay, how do I get out of attending this workshop?”

 

But done right, facilitation isn’t about boring presentations. It’s a process for getting groups of people together to solve any problem. Good facilitators know how to jump right in, establish an objective, create a format packed with interactive opportunities for discussion, and lead groups of all sizes toward constructive solutions. And you don’t need a specific job title or a certain amount of experience to become an effective facilitator–you just have to develop a set of skills that gives structure and purpose to the otherwise unruly art of collaboration.

 

As workplaces become less hierarchical and more reliant on interpersonal problem-solving, rather than just tactical execution, facilitation is becoming a job skill you’ll need to rely on more and more. Here’s what you need to know to get started developing it.

Social connections are sometimes called “social capital” for good reason: They are a valuable resource in life, creating moments of positivity and fun, supporting us through good times and bad, and exposing us to new ideas and new people. If we cultivate healthy connections, the research promises a longer, happier, and more prosperous life.
