Want to be Smarter? Learn to Say “I Don’t Know”

Want to be Smarter? Learn to Say “I Don’t Know” | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
None of us are ever right. Certainty is an illusion, and there is no shame in being wrong because, by nature, our entire perception of the world is wrong.
Over time, we progress and thrive in our surroundings by being less wrong. We feel around, we test, and we question ourselves until something works.
Uncertainty isn’t a condition to be avoided, but a tool for better decisions.

Social connection provides key to wellbeing

Social connection provides key to wellbeing | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it
Decades of research suggest that the quality of our social ties might be the single biggest predictor of our well-being.

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. 

“Resonant relationships are like emotional vitamins, sustaining us through tough times and nourishing us daily,” writes Daniel Goleman in Social Intelligence: The New Science of Human Relationships.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, June 25, 9:13 AM

 

Many of the tasks involved in operating a small business are repetitive tasks, that if automated, will save time and effort forever after. Some tools are well known and others lesser so, but awareness of all that is available to you, enables you to make better decisions regarding what could and should be automated. The ten tools discussed in this article are well worth exploring, and I would be very surprised, if you can't find a few to make your business more efficient.

To Make Your Meetings More Productive, Do 1 of These 4 Things

To Make Your Meetings More Productive, Do 1 of These 4 Things | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

If you feel like most of your meetings at work are a waste of time, the good--and bad--news is that you're onto something. One survey found that 50 percent of meeting time is unproductive while up to 25 percent of meetings are spent on irrelevant issues. The same way we put deliberate thought into building businesses for our customers, we need to be intentional about planning meetings for their participants. A successful meeting is designed with its participants in mind.

 

Here are four tips for designing a brain-friendly meeting.

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.

 

HT to the excellent Farnham Street blog - but, then, I'm probably biased!

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.

donhornsby's curator insight, May 2, 11:41 AM
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.

This is a review of one of my favorite books of all time, “The Leadership Gap: What Gets Between You and Your Greatness”, which was just released by my dear friend, Lolly Daskal. It has already reached numerous bestseller lists, Lolly has been called “The Most Inspiring Woman in The World” by Huffington Post, and designated a Top 50 Leadership and Management Expert by Inc. Magazine. After decades of advising and inspiring some of the most eminent chief executives in the world, Lolly Daskal has uncovered a startling pattern: within each leader are powerful abilities that are also hidden impediments to greatness. In this book, she reveals her proven system, which leaders at any level can apply to dramatically improve their results.

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!!
