Senge has further developed his thinking after the prolific '5th Discipline'. I am particularly enthused by the neuroscience data that proves ancient wisdom such as the mindfulness practices from Buddhism.

5 Ways to Handle a High Pressure Meeting

5 Ways to Handle a High Pressure Meeting | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

It's easy to let even a simple meeting get out of hand. Maintaining control is important; the room can sense when you are flustered, you easily forget your train of thought and control over the outcome.

I used some of the following techniques to maintain control over the meeting and bring the team back to a successful conclusion:


Slow It Down


It is common to increase your speech when you are nervous. To truly connect with your audience, you must slow down instead and control the speed of the discussion.

How to sell a tale: the power of stories in marketing

Jim Signorelli,Story-Lab's curator insight, September 3, 2015 11:26 AM

This article provides a number of great points when it comes to the efficacy of brand storytelling, most important of which is the power of fiction over fact. 


However, it, like many articles on brand storytelling takes a point of view that I believe can be misleading.  It is the notion that the brand's role is to make the customer the hero.  


Many will (and have) disagreed with my contention that this limits the opportunity for the brand.   This is because we have always been taught to believe the customer is king or queen.  This may be true when it comes to a brand's service ethic, but this thought can get in the way when it comes to brand storytelling.


Consider this: Hero's are people we aspire to and emulate, not so much for what they do, but for what they value and believe in.   They provide us with a purpose that resonates with our own beliefs about what is important. 


I realize this could get into a lengthy article as opposed to an insight. So I'll just ask you to think about the brands you love and admire.  Are you emotionally attached to them because of the functions they perform or because of what they represent?  Here's yet another thing to consider:  When you see an ad that implies that a given product is going to make you a hero to your kids, or the envy of your neighbors, do you believe them?

The Only Two Rules You Need To Know To Be Successful In Work And Life

The Only Two Rules You Need To Know To Be Successful In Work And Life | Strategies for Managing Your Business | Scoop.it

There are three skills you need to be financially successful: making money, keeping money, growing money. James Altucher is mostly only good at making money.


"I’ve had several instances where I’ve started a business, sold it, made a lot of money, and then basically lost everything I made, whether it was $50 million or $5 million or whatever," he tells Fast Company. "I always have a tendency to lose everything I made."


There are some simple rules, like drink coffee first thing in the morning and 20 minutes before you write so that it "sets your brain on fire, makes you go to the bathroom, cleans your body out before you set your heart on fire." Then, there’s his 30% rule, which basically says that everyone should cut or rewrite at least 30% of their masterpiece after they think they’ve finished it.

The ability for being present is not something mystic. Most everyone recognizes it and has experienced it in themselves and others at some time or another. However, it is not always easy to talk about, precisely because it involves more than our cognitive and verbal abilities. It is also a crucial aspect of creative leadership.
