Find the Coaching in Criticism

Find the Coaching in Criticism | Management Academy | Scoop.it

Your growth depends on your ability to pull value from criticism in spite of your natural responses and on your willingness to seek out even more advice and coaching from bosses, peers, and subordinates.

 

They may be good or bad at providing it, or they may have little time for it—but you are the most important factor in your own development. If you’re determined to learn from whatever feedback you get, no one can stop you.

5 Leadership Struggles Leaders Face

5 Leadership Struggles Leaders Face | Management Academy | Scoop.it

#1 Confidence – Are you confident or arrogant? The difference is “I am the reason we succeed,” vs. “You all are the reason we succeed.” What’s the source of your confidence? You or the vision and plan? You or the people you lead? Arrogance shouts “I and me.” Confidence shouts “you and us.” Carry yourself with confidence and you can influence people. Lead with arrogance and you turn people off.

#2 Confrontation – Do you struggle confronting the people you lead with the brutal truth. The truth is, every leader has struggled with “we need to have a tough conversation.” Why? Because it gets personal. Keep the conversation about the vision, the plan and making the team better. Caring leaders confront. Pleasing people won’t get results. All it does is make the conversation easier. Coach, guide and direct. Learn to have the crucial conversations. Don’t avoid the confrontations. Embrace them and lead.....

I am not sure I want to think like an economist, but I do want to debunk the superman myth. I am OK with saying: "I don't know." We need to in this complex world.

Andrew Spence's comment, April 9, 2013 3:55 AM
Thanks for sharing this. Ivon - good point about being comfortable saying "I don't know" with some of these complex issues. I am not sure HR should think like an economist all the time, but one day a week might help!

Leadership Challenge: Staying Out of the Box

Leadership Challenge: Staying Out of the Box | Management Academy | Scoop.it

In my experience, one of the hardest things to do when we are in the box with other people is admitting our own role and our contribution to the conflict.

It is a lot easier to blame the other person and justify our behavior.

 

Not surprisingly, I fall in the box much easier during times of pressure and stress.

The Box is Like an Addiction

Many times it lures me in trough my negativity bias and assumptions. This is especially true during stressful times, like the situation I describe in this article.

 

Often, people ask me what to do when others are abrasive with them. Participants want me to know what to do with the “Barbs” of their workplace.

 

The best answer I can give them is to lead in a different way. In the story above, I almost succeeded in following my own advice.

Getting into the right mindset for better learning

Getting into the right mindset for better learning | Management Academy | Scoop.it

Mark Gleeson once again provides insight into an infographic. This one on fixed vs growth mindset. In this post he states "Originating from Stanford University psychologist/researcher Carol Dweck, its premise (from my initial reflection) is that as learners, we can either improve our intelligence through hard work or that we are born with a skill set and intelligence level that we are stuck with."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, April 7, 2013 8:58 AM

What do you think? Do your students come to you with a fixed mindset? Is there future pre-determined by birth? Is intelligence static? Or do you students come in with a growth mindset, with the knowledge that learning takes effort and time, the ability to try and fail, and try again (and again...)? Can intelligence be developed?

Gleeson provides an overview of the two mindsets and explores the infographic and the five categories within in it by asking each as a question. Below is one example...but you will find questins for each category in the post (challenges, obstacles, effort, criticism, success of others).

Quoting from the post:

OBSTACLES: Do we allow our children/ourselves to give up when learning becomes too difficult and stay in a growth- limiting ‘comfort zone’? OR Do we expect our childen/ourselves to persist until we overcome those obstacles and celebrate the achievement of success against all odds?And if you would like to watch a short video that discusses fixed mindset check out this link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OhLJPhxuvGM.

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:06 AM

People/Students do not go for the challenges because they are scared of failure. With failure come consequences fro example low grades. Anyone can say the grade doesn't matter  it is what you learned, however without the grade you can lose out on getting accepted into colleges or fail a class. 

 

This article is about  about how one can reach success by having a growth mindset.  By gaining and having the drive to gain more knowledge.
