Good Workplace Communication? It Means Good Workplace Performance

Good Workplace Communication? It Means Good Workplace Performance | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
Workplace communication isn’t easy. Everything, from personal to business relationships, hinges on communication.
Trumans's insight:

Such an important area, that so few businesses pay attention to. It starts at the top and should be prevalent all the way through your organisation. It may mean having to take time out to teach it, but will be worth the investment and the effort.

Train Your Brain To Let Go Of Habits – 10 Methods For Creating New Neural Pathways

Train Your Brain To Let Go Of Habits – 10 Methods For Creating New Neural Pathways | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
When you understand how neural pathways are created in the brain, you get a front row seat for truly comprehending how to let go of habits. Neural pathways are like superhighways of nerve cells that transmit messages. You travel over the superhighway many times, and the pathway becomes more and more solid. You may go to a specific food or cigarettes for comfort over and over, and that forms a brain pathway. The hopeful fact, however, is that the brain is always changing and you can forge new pathways and create new habits. That’s called the neuroplasticity of the brain.

I used to drive with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator, and I wanted to train myself to drive with one foot only. It took some time, as I had a strong neural pathway for two-footed driving. But because I had the will to do it, I built a new pathway, and I rewired or reprogrammed my brain. You can remove a behavior or thought or addictions directly from the brain.

Because of neuroplasticity, the brain’s ever-changing potentials, anything is possible. People who’ve had strokes can retrain their brains to function again by building new pathways. Smokers and overeaters and many others can learn new behaviors and attitudes and can transform their lives.

Whether you work with others on their habits or you work with your own (or both), you can apply these understandings to boost your success.

Don't Try to Manage Your Time - Manage Yourself!

Here's an important announcement: There is no such thing as time management.

Think about it; the term is an oxymoron. Time cannot be managed. It cannot be controlled in any way. Everyone gets the same number of hours and minutes every day.

5 Super Effective Ways to Become a Great Communicator | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

Great communicators are highly respected and trusted. To them, it is very important to first build relationships--both personal and professional--as a way to create successful communication. Great communicators appreciate all their relationships and all the interactions they have. They are successful people who become the go-to source for other people within an organization.

One of the advantages that great communicators have is the big opportunity to get promoted and recognized in their careers more frequently as a result of their great communication competencies. Below are five successful practices of great communicators:

Transformation is an outcome of a series of transitions. We don't need transformational leaders. We need leaders willing and able to co-create the transitions and who appreciate and help people to be accountable as the transitions are executed.

Stop Beating Yourself Up for Not Getting Everything Done Every Day

Stop Beating Yourself Up for Not Getting Everything Done Every Day | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

One of the biggest challenges that we all face is the steadily increasing number of things that we have to do on a daily basis. There is nothing new about this but many people struggle with a sense of daily frustration simply because they can't get everything done and in all likelihood they never will.

At the end of the day, when you look at your to do list, and start the afternoon "I'm not good enough" session, beating yourself up because you didn't get everything done, try making a new list.

Forget the Vision, Make the Connections | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

New leaders don’t spend nearly enough time and effort being intentional about how they show up and how they spend their own time. The effort they devote to forming meaningful connections with the people in the organization is almost an afterthought.

donhornsby's curator insight, April 27, 9:51 AM

(From the article): How can you be more intentional? Hall frames intentionality in her own work in eight words that guide each of her interactions: “I want it to matter that we met.” And it should matter for both her and the person she is meeting. There is an implied flexibility in the time horizon; it may matter immediately or several years down the road. Challenge yourself: “I want it to matter that I hold this position,” or “I want it to matter that I am your boss.” How does this affect how you will show up to deliver short-term results and create long-term impact?

Leadership and happiness, when do they arise together? | Hewsons | Joe Walsh

Leadership and happiness, when do they arise together? | Hewsons | Joe Walsh | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

In his TED talk titled “Want to be happy? Be grateful”, David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine monk makes the point that happiness arises when we avail ourselves of the opportunity presented by each moment in life. Even in difficult circumstances opportunity still exists and happiness is available.

Trumans's insight:

In my experience it's very important to strive to be happy in what you do as people would rather work with and be led by a happy person than an unhappy one.

2 Ways To Become Indispensable At Work

2 Ways To Become Indispensable At Work | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

If you said “no” to any of the above, you’re probably not indispensable to your employer. But you should strive to be, says Chris Gaborit, managing director and cofounder of The Learning Factor, in a recent LinkedIn post.

 

In the post, Gaborit offers keys to becoming indispensable at work.

 

“I decided to get some wisdom from people I respect,” he says. “I asked some of our best clients — senior managers who work for global companies. These people have walked the walk; they have been bulletproof when it comes to restructuring.”

 

Here are two ways to become indispensable at work:

Does your company value you? Do you think you’d survive multiple rounds of layoffs? Would your employer miss you if you were to leave?

Elías Manuel Sánchez Castañeda's curator insight, April 15, 12:03 PM

The title of the post of Chris Gaborit is very suggestive "five keys to becoming an indispensable at work" frankly I think that no employee may become necessary but increase the likelihood that in times of crisis and organizational restructuring is one of the employees that the company wants to retain an employee who has also developed specific expertise of their work, the skills to be kept longer in a company that knows increase their employability. For these five tips Gaborit seem very important:

 

Hold the mindset that change provides opportunity.Do not overfocus on the next job position but rather on the skills to be developed.Building relationships with key decision makers.Exhibit the ability to get ‘stuff’ done.Treat everyone with genuine respect
