8 Personality Types And How To Manage Them

8 Personality Types And How To Manage Them | Tidbits, titbits or tipbits? | Scoop.it

Every team is made up of different personality types, and some demand more time and attention from the leaders who manage them than others. As every team leader knows, there’s no hard and fast management strategy that fits every kind of employee. Short of that, though, there's a rough framework managers can use to decide how to direct their energy toward getting the most out of all the personalities on their teams. Here’s a quick rundown of eight of the most common personality types and how to manage each one.

5 Habits Of Effective Introverted Leaders

5 Habits Of Effective Introverted Leaders | Tidbits, titbits or tipbits? | Scoop.it

Leadership is often associated with words like "charisma," "power," "outgoing," and "confident." As a result, introverted and quiet changemakers may have difficulties envisioning what their leadership looks like.

 

But core aspects of leadership, such as those described by transformational leadership researchers James MacGregor Burns, Bernard M. Bass, James Kouzes, and Barry Posner, and by Good to Great author Jim Collins, reflect ideas that are in total alignment with quiet changemakers, and you don’t need to be in a position of authority or have a formal leadership role to practice these leadership characteristics.

EQ is easily one of the most necessary, yet under-sought character skill sets for effective leadership and management! EQ was once the result of years of trial and error regarding effective social interactions. As the article suggests we all have the capacity for EQ, the challenge rests, however in actively nurturing (through targeted practice) our efforts at successfully employing and improving our EQ abilities, or characteristics.

10 Simple Habits That Make Afternoons As Productive As Mornings

10 Simple Habits That Make Afternoons As Productive As Mornings | Tidbits, titbits or tipbits? | Scoop.it

Our society is collectively obsessed with morning routines.

What is just as important, but often neglected, is how we manage what happens in the middle of the day.

When we wake up, our minds are clear, our bodies are rested. High willpower gives us the energy to take on the day.

The problem is that no matter how much energy we start with, it can only sustain us for so long. Without good mid-day habits, we fall prey to distraction (hello Facebook!), impulsivity, irritability, and fatigue. Or even worse, we crash and make bad decisions we regret. According to renowned willpower researcher Roy Baumeister, "Most things go bad in the evening. Diets are broken at the evening snack, not at breakfast… Impulsive crimes are mostly committed after midnight."

5 Body Language Secrets That Will Help You Gain People's Trust

5 Body Language Secrets That Will Help You Gain People's Trust | Tidbits, titbits or tipbits? | Scoop.it

Whether it's in the business world or in personal relations, there is one thing that we all need to get along and be successful: trust. We all strive to have people trust us, but the truth is that trust is often hard to build. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to instantly appear more trustworthy. Here are five body language secrets to help you earn people's trust.

 

1. The eyes have it.

 

The first thing you want to remember when building trust is to keep eye contact. Eye contact is one of those things we subconsciously take note of every time we meet a person. Have you ever tried to have a conversation with a person who was constantly shuffling around and looking in different directions? Sporadic eye contact communicates a lack of interest, distraction, and even dishonesty. Whenever you're speaking, be sure to keep good, steady eye contact.

‘Humblebragging’ is a Bad Strategy, Especially in a Job Interview — HBS Working Knowledge

‘Humblebragging’ is a Bad Strategy, Especially in a Job Interview — HBS Working Knowledge | Tidbits, titbits or tipbits? | Scoop.it

If you've spent any time on Twitter, then you're probably familiar with the "humblebrag"—a brag veiled in a complaint, so as to sound less blatantly like a brag.

Here's an example from the Twitter account of Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary: They just announced my flight at LaGuardia is number 15 for takeoff. I miss Air Force One!! And here's one from film director Lee Unkrich: Just in case you think all this has gone to my head, within 36 hours of winning the Oscar, I was back home plunging a clogged toilet.

“Not only do we like humblebraggers less, we’re less likely to be generous to them”

Humblebragging runs rampant on Twitter, but it turns out to be a lousy self-promotion tactic, especially in business situations such as job interviews, according to recent research by Harvard Business School's Ovul Sezer, Francesca Gino, and Michael I. Norton.

Their research shows that when given the choice to brag or to humblebrag, it's better to straight-out brag.

The four traits of collaborative leadership - Virgin.com | Tidbits, titbits or tipbits? | Scoop.it

So what does tomorrow’s leader look like? Here are four traits on the rise:

 

Part of the team. For a millennial workforce, working collaboratively is key – and that includes the chance to challenge and question the boss. Great leaders will spend time meeting their staff and really listening to what they have to say.Admitting mistakes. Authenticity rules, and that might mean having the courage and conviction to admit lack of knowledge or making the wrong call. Humility is critical, particularly in an age of transparency and public accountability.Multi-sector experience. Millennials are far more likely to move between jobs and sectors as they develop their career, and they’ll expect their leaders to have the same breadth of experience. The journey from shop floor to CEO isn’t as relevant for tomorrow’s workforce.Female characteristics. It’s still a shocking truth that 5% of Fortune 500 positions go to women, but the evidence shows that businesses benefit enormously from behavioural traits often considered to be female, such as emotional intelligence, diplomacy and complex social skills. Women make great leaders.

How to Boldly Face Your Fear of Criticism

How to Boldly Face Your Fear of Criticism | Tidbits, titbits or tipbits? | Scoop.it

Many of my clients deal with a fear of criticism. I see it in several aspects of their lives. At work, people fear criticism from their managers and colleagues, so they keep quiet and don't share their opinions. They play it safe. At home, people fear that they'll be criticized by their spouse or partner, so they don't speak their mind. They back down when they sense conflict. In friendships, people often don't have boundaries because they fear that establishing them would lead to criticism or that they would be viewed as selfish.

 

Whatever the setting, it's this fear that keeps people stuck. For example, by not speaking up and not sharing your ideas, you'll never advance. People won't know your thoughts and will have no reason to recognize your worth and promote you.

We all go through the fear of criticism.  Be it about your business, video or even your talent in general.  Fear in itself is a very paralyzing thing, but when it reaches the topic that will source your future it tends to be taking even more seriously than it really is. 


There's this phrase that really calmed me down when I launched my first android app and started receiving negative ratings (not even many... just 2 out of 50).  "Don't sweat it; you have knowledge now".  

Knowledge is the antidote of fear after all.  Criticism shouldn't become a fear because it's actual knowledge of something that could be modified.  


Here are a few tips of how to handle criticism correctly.    There's never any reason to be scared of criticism.
