The Antidote to Ambiguity: Values-Based Leadership

The Antidote to Ambiguity: Values-Based Leadership | TICs para los de LETRAS | Scoop.it

What is your mission statement? How many people in your organization have read it? Understand it? Remember it? BELIEVE IT? And, how many of those who remain after answering those questions have actually adopted it?

 

Management books universally extol the importance of a mission statement. I have both suffered through mission development exercises as a staff member and been hired to facilitate these sessions. The process goes something like this: a group of senior administrators lock themselves in a room for an extended period of time; they debate, compromise, and craft lofty prose until they finally unveil (white smoke from chimney) their UNIFYING DOCUMENT. Shortly thereafter, they proudly display their statements on websites, placards, and business cards, then sit back and wait for the wisdom to trickle down to the masses. Much to their surprise, little change occurs.

Have You Found Your Calling in Life?

Have You Found Your Calling in Life? | TICs para los de LETRAS | Scoop.it

One of the questions I tend to get asked frequently by people who start reading my blog is “How do I find my passion?” or some variation of that question. It’s a tough question to answer because there’s no real formula for it. It’s not “if you do A, you’ll find B.” It’s a question that requires you to look within and usually it’s the start of a lengthy, but very fulfilling journey.

 

While I haven’t quite figured out if there really is a formula for finding your passion, I am starting to get a sense for how you know you’ve found it.

How to Build the Muscle of Change

How to Build the Muscle of Change | TICs para los de LETRAS | Scoop.it

When you try to make a change in your life, create a new habit, set a resolution … are you usually good at it, or does the change fail after 2-3 weeks?

 

Some people are better at it than others because they’ve learned some simple strategies for changing, but also because they’ve built up their change muscle.

 

What’s a change muscle? It’s the muscle we use for creating changes in our lives, and like our physical muscles, it is weak if you haven’t trained it.

 

I started training my change muscle in 2005, when it was weak and I could never make any lasting changes. I felt helpless, and didn’t know what to do. I felt like I couldn’t ever make changes.

 

But I’ve learned in the years since that the change muscle is like other muscles: you might be weak at first, but you get stronger with regular training...

30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself

30 Things to Stop Doing to Yourself | TICs para los de LETRAS | Scoop.it

As Maria Robinson once said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” Nothing could be closer to the truth. But before you can begin this process of transformation you have to stop doing the things that have been holding you back.

 

Here are some ideas to get you started:

 

Stop spending time with the wrong people. – Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. You shouldn’t have to fight for a spot. Never, ever insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth. And remember, it’s not the people that stand by your side when you’re at your best, but the ones who stand beside you when you’re at your worst that are your true friends. Stop running from your problems. – Face them head on. No, it won’t be easy. There is no person in the world capable of flawlessly handling every punch thrown at them.

Many people’s confidence naturally wavers from day to day, leaving them too timid or confused at just the wrong time.

 

Is your self-confidence natural, or a daily struggle?

 

Many people’s confidence naturally wavers from day to day, leaving them too timid or confused at just the wrong time. Whether you are naturally confident or could use some better eye contact with your life, setting in place a few simple strategies goes a long way to stoke your inner confidence.

 

If you think you’re not especially smart or capable, or that failure is a given no matter how hard you try, you’re right.

 

And if you believe you’re brilliant and can accomplish anything you set your mind to, you’re right.

 

Amplifying your inner confidence is like any other skill you develop; you can do it in a blink. Day by day, step by step, you will get closer to your goals. No one runs a marathon fueled by decision alone.
