An Executive Coach Explains How To Master Office Politics To Rise Through The Ranks

An Executive Coach Explains How To Master Office Politics To Rise Through The Ranks | Transform | Scoop.it

For many people, the idea of using office politics to your advantage sounds Machiavellian, as if you need to manipulate, deceive, and destroy on your way to the top.

But you’d be naive to think politics don’t influence your success, and the first step to leveraging them may be to change your definition of politicking.

Viren Lall's insight:

There is no organisation where influence and politics don't play a role. Not all politics is macchavelian

How Single-Tasking Boosts Your Productivity

How Single-Tasking Boosts Your Productivity | Transform | Scoop.it

While writing this post, I had 18 tabs open. I’d like to say they were all for research, although I’m pretty sure one or two slipped down a YouTube wormhole.

 

Does this sound familiar?

 

It seems like my multi-tab madness is right in line with the status quo. We all love to have multiple tabs open at once, adding more and more as we find new articles to click and sites to visit. Pretty soon, it’s likely we’ve forgotten what we were online for in the first place.

Overwhelmed and in need of an attention-overhaul? Might be time to approach your workflow in a new way.

Thank goodness - the death knell on multi-tasking. Focus is the key to being effective.

I have 17 tabs open, 3 Excel, 2 Word and 2 ppt files open. And a second browser. I need some single tasking!

There are many similar "things" to buy out there. It's the experience - from looking to buy to buying to service after the fact is way more important. The science backs this up.

Audrey's curator insight, October 26, 2014 5:27 AM

Experiences aids continuous learning for everyone.  Starting children from an early age  is key to skill acquisition.  

 

Reading one aspect of a subject is not enough.  By the time young people reach the age of A  levels they should be well equipped with knowledge of how to acquire information - not just from what is written on a powerpoint, blackboard or whiteboard, but from their own research.:  e.g. Youtube, searching the web, chapters in books and so many other ways......

 

Have a look at different websites which point the way.  Two examples:

Top 10 TED Talks for Entrepreneurs in 2014 | Transform | Scoop.it

 

TEDGlobal 2014 kicked off this week in Rio de Janeiro with panels focusing on how ideas, both good and bad, spread across borders. 

 

If you’ve yet to accumulate enough frequent-flier miles to dash off to South America for this global-minded innovation conference, you can get inspired at home by watching the following top TED Talks of the year. 

 

Bill and Melinda Gates: Why giving away our wealth has been the most rewarding thing we’ve done.

 

In 1993, Bill and Melinda Gates took a trip to Africa that changed the way they viewed what was truly valuable. The extreme poverty they witnessed then instigated a lifelong commitment to give back 95 percent of their wealth.
