How To Practice Mindfulness When You Don't Have The Time

How To Practice Mindfulness When You Don't Have The Time | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

We now have the scientific evidence to back up those claims. Research conducted by Greg Feist of San Jose State University found that when people let their focus shift away from others around them, they're better able to engage in "metacognition," the process of thinking critically and reflectively about your own thoughts.

 

Where things get tricky, though, is figuring out what to do in order to encourage metacognitive thought in the first place. When we're routinely overwhelmed with outside noise, carving out space for unstructured daydreaming takes planning, structure.

 

Sometimes the most productive periods of contemplation come to us unawares and don't last very long—but that doesn't mean they aren't useful.

I could not agree more with this approach. 


I also like to challenge my team to this approach ... "Pretend as though your employees have contracted you for the year.  Ask yourself truthfully, would they re-hire you once the year is up?  Did you take care of them in a way that they would be afraid to contract another leader or department because no one else would take care of them and add value as you would?


That is the mind set that I like to challenge myself to uphold, because our employees are our internal customers. 

What do you think?

10 Qualities of People With High Emotional Intelligence

10 Qualities of People With High Emotional Intelligence | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to have an unlimited amount of success in both their personal and professional lives? It could be because they possess high emotional intelligence.

 

According to Psychology Today, "Emotional intelligence is the ability to identify and manage your own emotions and the emotions of others." This usually involves:

 

emotional awareness, which includes the ability to identify your own emotions as well as those of others;the ability to harness emotions and apply them to tasks such as problem solving;the ability to manage your emotions, such as being able to calm down when you're upset.

Why the Leadership Industry Has Failed

Why the Leadership Industry Has Failed | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Corporate training in the U.S. is a $70 billion market, and 35% of that is spent on management and leadership training. Over the last several decades, the industry has produced a recipe for how to be a successful corporate leader: Be trustworthy and authentic, serve others (particularly those who work for and with you), be modest, and exhibit empathetic understanding and emotional intelligence.

Steve Bax's curator insight, November 27, 2015 4:56 AM

Very stimulating article here. 

 

My take-aways are:

"It’s far more important for leaders to understand what a particular situation requires and to act in an appropriate way, says Pfeffer. “Leaders need to be true to what the situation demands and what the people around them want and need,”

In the end, says Pfeffer, we would all be better off accepting that our leaders are generally not truthful, authentic, modest, or trustworthy, largely the opposite of the message we get from the popular motivational leadership stories we hear. “All those stories and the inspiration we get from them change nothing,” he says. “The fundamental problem with this industry is the disconnect between what we say we want from our leaders and how they actually manage organizations.”

Jeffrey Pfeffer is the Thomas D. Dee II Professor of Organizational Behavior at the Stanford Graduate School of Business. His new book, Leadership BS: Fixing Workplaces and Careers One Truth at a Time, was published by Harper Business. Has to be worth a read!

 

Ron McIntyre's curator insight, November 29, 2015 9:47 AM

Interesting point of view.  What do you think. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 2, 12:10 PM

We confuse management with leadership. Both are important, but they are different. We cannot summarize leadership into a recipe of 7 habits, 3 phases, 5 outcomes, etc. It is too non-linear and complex.

Growth Mindset: Clearing up Some Common Confusions

Growth Mindset: Clearing up Some Common Confusions | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
A growth mindset is the understanding that personal qualities and abilities can change. It leads people to take on challenges, persevere in the face of setbacks, and become more effective learners. As more and more people learn about the growth mindset, which was first discovered by Stanford Professor Carol Dweck, we sometimes observe some confusions about it. Recently some critiques have emerged. Of course we invite critical analysis and feedback, as it helps all of us learn and improve, but some of the recent commentary seems to point to misunderstandings of growth mindset research and practice. This article summarizes some common confusions and offers some reflections.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 2, 5:49 PM

(From the article): Leaders with conviction create an environment of certainty for everyone. When a leader is absolutely convinced that he’s chosen the best course of action, everyone who follows him unconsciously absorbs this belief and the accompanying emotional state. Mirror neurons are responsible for this involuntary response. They mirror the emotional states of other people—especially those we look to for guidance. This ensures that leaders with conviction put us at ease.

What Made "I Have A Dream" Such A Perfect Speech

What Made "I Have A Dream" Such A Perfect Speech | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Each year on this day, I make it a point to listen to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s great "I Have a Dream" speech. It's electrifying every single time.

 

The content of Dr. King's speech, his inspiring presence, and the moment in history all came together to make the iconic "I Have A Dream" speech the defining moment of the American Civil Rights Movement. But there are several other reasons why this speech, delivered over 50 years ago, remains an example of one of the best speeches in American history.

 

Since part of my job is to help people become better presenters, I've noticed several techniques that we can all learn from and be inspired by in this magnificent speech.

Jerry Busone's curator insight, January 7, 11:01 PM

"Leadership development should not live in a vacuum; it needs to be directly connected to real business challenges, opportunities, projects and perspectives." To do this requires Sr leaders be engaged in the process of developing leaders from building a bench through their careers as leaders.

Emerging World's curator insight, January 8, 2:11 AM

The authors of this piece make the point that, "individuals are far more motivated and energized when they are connected to a higher purpose and feel they are providing a service to society, their customers and their community"


"This," they argue, "can be achieved by linking service-based activity to the leadership development strategy, allowing leaders to deploy their skills in service of something greater than themselves."
