6 Things Wise Leaders Do To Engage Their Employees

6 Things Wise Leaders Do To Engage Their Employees | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
An article in the New York Daily News reports that nearly 70% of U.S. employees are miserable at work. According to the story, research conducted by the Gallup Poll suggests that the majority of American’s dislike or feel disengaged on the job. Needless to say, this is disturbing news. It’s also an indicator that leaders are having trouble finding ways to stimulate engagement with today’s employees – a workforce that is much more diverse and younger than ever before. Many corporations are experiencing transformation mode, where leadership is about enabling the full potential in others. It’s about allowing employees to be their authentic selves so they can leverage their strengths and unique perspectives.

The science of mindfulness for leaders

The science of mindfulness for leaders | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

If you are involved in any way with HR or L&D it is likely you have heard about mindfulness. It may well feature somewhere on your ‘to do’ list, whether filed in the ‘figure out what everyone is talking about’ column, or under choosing a ‘taster’ session or programme for your organisation.
Whether it is central to your strategy right now, or just on your horizon, knowing more about how mindfulness has come to prominence and how it can help you is a step in the right direction.

Les leçons finissent généralement par toute se recouper.   À force de se les faire présenter de différentes façons, le message fini par passer :-)  Un des messages de base: le leadership ne s'apprend pas dans les livres mais sur le terrain, avec les gens qui nous entourent.  Le leadership est plus du domaine du savoir-être que du savoir...

 

Basically, the messages beyond all those articles written on leadership are about the same: you don't learn leadership in books; you experiment it in real life with real people.  Finally, leadership is more about "beeing" than "knowing" ...

Meta-Collaboration: Thinking With Another

Meta-Collaboration: Thinking With Another | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
The two aspects of being human that set us apart from other mammals are metacognition and the deep desire to belong or feel felt. Our sense of needing to belong to a group is an inherited part of our neurobiology, and collaboration with others is the desired outcome. Metacognition is our brains' miraculous innate ability to self-assess, think about our thinking, and reshape our perspectives.

Feeling the emotions of others, social acceptance, and cooperation are critical to our early development of the identity and industry stages. Author and motivational speaker Daniel Pink states that the future belongs to conceptual cooperative thinkers.

Creating Space to Lead - The Create Network

Creating Space to Lead - The Create Network | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Leading in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world takes up a lot of our psychological space.  Leaders are required to think in more complex ways, build relationships with a wider range of people, and behave with a higher level of agility. All of these take a lot of conscious effort.   When we are under pressure our psychological space shrinks and we are unable to make this effort.  As a consequence, our thinking becomes black and white, we become emotionally defensive, and our behaviour becomes inflexible.

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People

8 Ways Emotionally Intelligent People Deal With Toxic People | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Life is stressful enough for most of us. Allowing a toxic individual to ravage your immediate environment can cause havoc in your mental well-being, which can lead to physical challenges.

A bad state of mind not only affects your physical well-being but makes it difficult for you to respond calmly under pressure. Ninety percent of top performers are skilled at managing their emotions, so your ability to perform effectively can be affected if you do not adopt strategies that will allow you to deal with toxic people.

Emotional Intelligence is a great skill to possess. It will truly benefit your life and everyone around you. If you are a student, parent, husband, wife, employee, employer; entrepreneur, teacher, preacher. If you are a man woman, or child, EI, can help you release damaging toxins, left by toxic people (and you too) that add undue stress, tension, and pressure; and free yourself, by improving your mental state, which in turn, increases your health and performance.

 

Other benefits include, but are not limited to; lower blood pressure and hyper-tension, blood sugar levels (diabetes), headaches, back and stomach pain. Paranoia, anxiety, and other related symptoms.

 

I am a student and practitioner of EI; and I have grown and benefited from it greatly, and so can you.

Great article on avoiding the quicksand of toxic people. I practice many of these techniques. Boundaries; many you will have to love from a distance and it's ok. Being clear that just because people have the right to say what they want doesn't make it true about you; keep it moving. There will be positive & negative people. You get to choose who you will lend your energy to.
