The Key To A Lasting Relationship In Business And In Marriage

The Key To A Lasting Relationship In Business And In Marriage | What is Leadership? | Scoop.it
As the economy improves many of your best employees might start looking for new opportunities. Praise might just be the perk your company or department is missing.
Greg Clowminzer's insight:

Appreciation, praise, and recognition hold relationships together. The business compact is a relationship and most employees want the same feeling they get from a supportive spouse—they want to be shown appreciation. They want to be “celebrated every day.” I’m constantly amazed at how many bosses fail to utilize one of the most powerful retention and engagement tools at their disposal and that’s praise.

Train Your Brain to Be Optimistic

Optimism isn't always automatic. Sometimes you must create it for yourself.

Barry Deutsch's curator insight, February 25, 2013 10:33 PM

Interesting idea that you can train yourself to be optmistic. Probably a good idea since not everyone is born with an optimistic disposition.


I face this struggle constantly with the girls on my high school team. How do they overcome their mistakes, errors, coaches yelling from the sideline, parents screaming at them, opponents trash talking them on the court.


It's easy to start the "woe is me' feeling, easy to start blaming others, or to lash out in anger (earning a foul, a tech, or perhaps getting into with your coach and collecting splinters for the rest of the game).


If it's easy to fall into the negative traps of being pessimistic when you're 13/14 years old, what happens when there is much more at stake later on in life?


I like the recommendations in this article and plan on trying them out on my basketball team. Do you force yourself or consciously think about whether you're being optimistic or pessimistic? Are you self-aware?


One of my favorite books on this subject is the one written by Martin Seligman, titled "Learned Optimism".


The world would be a better place with more Optimists!

Why Businesses Are Wasting Billions of Dollars on Leadership Development - Inc.com

Why Businesses Are Wasting Billions of Dollars on Leadership Development - Inc.com | What is Leadership? | Scoop.it
A recent study finds that companies are highly concerned with cultivating new leaders, but their investment in training isn't paying off.
Greg Clowminzer's insight:

The problem with such programs is that companies are simply trying to entertain or just make people feel good for brief amount of time. And, there is no commitment from the participant to doing anything. 

 

Whatever insights one might gain from attending in such programs need to be broken down in to actionable steps and have some sort of accountability. Unfortunately, this rarely happens and most employee simply revert to their old habitual ways of doing business. 

 

The solution: On going coaching to implement and integrate what has been learned. Period.
