That take is that feedback says as much about us (the giver) as it does about the receiver. (Tweet that). I say this often, and many times people look at me funny. After all, the feedback I give you...
Amy Melendez's insight:
From the post:
Make sure you are giving feedback that is more observation and less judgment.
Make sure that you recognize your filters and consider the behavior more broadly than just from your perspective.
Our two main metrics for success are money and power, and they drive us to work longer hours, sleep with our phones and tablets, miss important moments with our families, and impacts our health. In Arianna Huffington's new book Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-being, Wisdom, and Wonder she proposes a third metric for success: thriving. When you thrive, you take care of your health, get enough sleep, and do not live to work.
With the rise of social and mobile, technology is now part of our everyday lifestyle. The result however, is that consumer familiarity with technology and how quickly they adopt and incorporate it into all they do has outpaced that of companies and institutions.
The impact is profound.
People are learning, communicating and collaborating differently in their personal life. Yet elsewhere, they’re expected to follow dated protocol that is at best counter-intuitive. This is causing a revolt which is only going to become increasingly dire as time and technology progress.
Students, employees, are fueling an escalation of expectations and demands to do things differently.
At the same time, decision-makers are struggling to figure out why investments don’t pan out according to plan. They still see how people use technology as novelty and even frustrating because it’s always compared to the way the world was and not the world as it’s changing.
Learn about the one thing successful leaders do that more of us need to do in leading our teams and organizations.
Amy Melendez's insight:
That’s the secret in how successful leaders show up in those daily interactions – because their focus is not internalized on what they want to accomplish, but on what they want us to achieve. Through this intentional, outward focus on those around them, they’re able to encourage and enable us to commit ourselves to living up to our potential to be better than we are today.
We write the equivalent of 520 million books every day on social media and email. The fact that so many of us are writing — sharing our ideas, good and bad — has changed the way we think. Just as we now live in public, so do we think in public.
Growth and innovation doesn't necessarily come from the people with lofty titles, but from the people who develop new ideas and execute them on a daily basis. And that's why, increasingly, traditional hierarchies don't work--and neither do traditional promotion and recognition systems.
“Listening is an attitude of the heart, a genuine desire to be with another which both attracts and heals.” — Anonymous
“We do this when we listen,” she said. “ It’s also incredibly important that we listen to ourselves so we can understand and meet our own needs for self-care. That way we are better able to care for others. These acts of listening and caring for ourselves first is the realm of self-compassion.”
We've shifted to a business world where collaboration and connection are replacing hierarchy and bureaucracy. The outdated "alpha" notion of aggressive management has given way to the modern era of cooperative "beta" leadership.
We're already seeing this take place as some companies take the lead in thinking about how, by giving up top-down control, they can actually get more work done. Here are some examples of what the future has in store for these beta organizations.
Mental toughness is using our brain to move through life with energy and enthusiasm, and not succumb to self-limiting beliefs.
Amy Melendez's insight:
"Success comes from thinking positively about our situation and not succumbing to the self-limiting belief that nothing can be done. This means using our brain to move through life with energy and enthusiasm."
At our annual meeting a few weeks ago, we were fortunate to have several great communicators and thought leaders address our group. One of them was Andy Andrews. One of the things he said that caught my attention was this… “Don’t believe everything you think.” As leaders, we’re a confident group. We have to be. » Read More
