How productive is your office? How many hours per week is your average employee spending on activities that add nothing to your bottom line? This article may act as a wake up call and help you to markedly increase your office productivity.

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.

The 7 Habits that Books and Reading Help You Build 

The 7 Habits that Books and Reading Help You Build  | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
The most useful definition of technology I’ve heard is simply, “the ability to do more with less.”
I think of books and reading as technologies.
We only live one life, but through books, we can gain the wisdom from thousands. When an author writes, re-writes, and edits, they are turning their words into a more perfect version of themselves. When you read, you get to spend time in a meditative state with a wise person’s more perfect self.
Books are the most under-valued and under-appreciated technology in the world.
How do we know they’re so valuable? We need only to examine how the best and the worst people throughout history have viewed books.

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

When students take notes using laptops they tend to take notes verbatim, writing down every last word uttered by their professor.
Obviously it is advantageous to draft more complete notes that precisely capture the course content and allow for a verbatim review of the material at a later date.  Only it isn’t. 

 

New research by Pam Mueller and Daniel Oppenheimer demonstrates that students who write out their notes on paper actually learn more.  Across three experiments, Mueller and Oppenheimer had students take notes in a classroom setting and then tested students on their memory for factual detail, their conceptual understanding of the material, and their ability to synthesize and generalize the information.  Half of the students were instructed to take notes with a laptop, and the other half were instructed to write the notes out by hand.  As in other studies, students who used laptops took more notes. 

 

In each study, however, those who wrote out their notes by hand had a stronger conceptual understanding and were more successful in applying and integrating the material than those who used took notes with their laptops.

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.

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.

How Feeling Frustrated Can Transform You and Your Business

How Feeling Frustrated Can Transform You and Your Business | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
Sir Richard Branson, the billionaire founder of Virgin Group, is known for his countless insightful musings on the world of business and entrepreneurship, but there’s one saying in particular that’s been on my mind a lot lately.

“Finding something frustrating and seeing an opportunity to make it better is what entrepreneurship is all about.”

What a simple, yet profound, statement. It’s so true. Think of all the great innovations in history, and the inception of that product or service likely came from someone’s long-held frustration. Frustrated that taxis are expensive and hard to fetch? Here’s Uber. Think hotels are overpriced? Well, here’s Airbnb. Want to eat at a place that doesn’t offer delivery? OK, here’s GrubHub. Are you sick of using slow and ugly looking computers? Welcome to Apple.

The examples are endless.

Frustration is indeed the core of what spawns most great businesses. But, on a deeper level, there’s something even more powerful about being frustrated. Not only can frustration help people come up with ideas or create new ventures, but it can act as a motivator to keep individuals from stagnating when it comes to their own development.

Leaders shouldn’t be afraid of frustration. It’s not to say that frustration is an enjoyable experience worth looking forward to, to be sure. But understand that feeling frustrated is a normal part of development. I’d even argue that if you’re not feeling frustration from time to time, you’re doing something wrong. You’re not pushing yourself enough. You’re not thinking big. You’re not growing.

The Eight Habits Of Remarkably Coachable Leaders

The Eight Habits Of Remarkably Coachable Leaders | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

In my executive coaching work, one of the most important traits that differentiates high potential leaders is their learning agility.

 

In succession planning discussions, organizations identify leaders who are learning agile because these people quickly learn how to be effective in new and different situations.

 

Organizations hire executive coaches to prepare these leaders for challenging and stretch assignments. Based on my work with these executives, I have distilled eight practices that differentiate the coaching clients who made the greatest gains vs. those that did not. Whether you are being coached by your manager or by an executive coach, these practices will make the difference in your learning agility and impact.
