#HR Psychology Of Fraud: Why Good People Do Bad Things | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Enron, Worldcom, Bernie Madoff — the past decade has brought us a long parade of headlines involving unethical behavior. And that's led researchers to a disturbing conclusion: The vast majority of us are not only capable of behaving in profoundly unethical ways, but without realizing it, we do it all the time.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, August 4, 11:50 AM

In general, when we think about bad behavior, we think about it being tied to character: Bad people do bad things. But that model, researchers say, is profoundly inadequate.

How Becoming A Good Listener Can Make You A Better Leader

How Becoming A Good Listener Can Make You A Better Leader | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Running a business is an inherently emotional experience. Even the most stoic leaders are bound to find themselves becoming invested not only in outcomes, but in people and processes as well.

 

While emotional leadership is often regarded as a liability, lack of personal investment can also bring about negative outcomes.

 

I’ve learned that the best leaders are those who can recognize emotionally-charged situations, rise above the passions of the movement, and maintain a level head. Good leaders are quick to listen and slow to anger.

Like teaching (educate and pedagogy are etymologically about leading) leading is about listening first. Sometimes asking questions furthers the conversation and understanding of others. They solve their problems.
libertopereda's curator insight, July 31, 4:09 PM

What does it mean to listen? Listening points to four levels: what we can see and hear, the emotions and thoughts, the sensations and what's wanting to emerge (or not). How much of our listening is directed to each of these four levels? Do we really listen when we speak? Do we listen inwards, outwards, both, or neither? Listening comes from the feminine side of us, specially deep listening. What is needed for a deeper listening? What is all this noise telling us?

How the Science of Well-Being is Evolving

How the Science of Well-Being is Evolving | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
The field of positive psychology was born when researchers noticed that psychology was awfully negative—focusing on illness and suffering but mute on the topic of how to thrive and flourish.

Two decades later, you could say that positive psychology is moving past this dichotomy of positive and negative, toward a more nuanced perspective on the good life. At least, that was one of the themes at the International Positive Psychology Association’s 5th World Congress, a four-day conference held earlier this month that brought together more than 1,300 researchers, practitioners, students, and journalists in Montreal, Canada.

Researchers shared the complexities and complications they were uncovering about the elements of well-being, from gratitude and mindfulness to passion and grit. Here are some of their insights.

A fascinating study that shows how beneficial small acts of kindness are beneficial for all. This should be the main focus of employee engagement programs. Encourage a culture of appreciation and empower people to live that value. It is contagious and can ripple through an entire organization leading to enhanced morale, productivity, innovation and customer service. Everyone wins.

Leadership Development: The Path To Becoming Our Highest Self

Leadership Development: The Path To Becoming Our Highest Self | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

We call ourselves “human beings,” but I think that title is aspirational: one we are meant to earn. Being human should mean we are capable of higher-level thought and can choose rationally how we respond to external events as well as to internal thoughts and emotions. Now, I don’t know about you, but all I need is to be cut off in traffic or have my husband use the wrong tone of voice to witness my own inability to do this well.

 

Perhaps the most surprising element in business today is that we often behave in ways that are extremely ineffective and quite beneath us. Even those among us who are highly educated senior-level professionals fall into these traps.

The Brutal Truth About Why Being a Leader Is So Hard

Here's why leadership is so tough.
What makes this mentality so difficult is that, in every capacity, it asks that you, as a leader, put yourself last.

It's a removal of the ego. You can't just rage out of impatience, or get upset because other people aren't working the way you want them to work. You can't show your frustration--even if everyone else is. You can't sit back and complain when times get tough, you have to be the positive force that changes the tide.

You, as a leader, have to take a step back from your impulsive, emotional reactions, and instead operate from a place of calm understanding. And that's a skill that isn't taught in school, it's not taught in after-school clubs, or even on sports teams.

It's learned through watching closely others who embody that trait.

And it's learned through diligent self-inquiry, and constantly practicing the art of being flexible in the way you communicate and lead others.

From CSR to CEO

From CSR to CEO | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

Doing good is good business. In this world where the bottom line matters, hitting KPIs and meeting shareholders’ expectations trumps goodness, we’re always quick to dismiss this over-idealistic thought.

But this idealism when backed by strategy, culture building, passion and talent development can, in fact, benefit the corporate individual, the business and community. It can be the paradigm shift in what leads a business to flourish – transforming ordinary employees to committed outstanding leaders.

This article looks at employees increasing desire for meaningful work with companies that act ethically and how CSR programmes can provide that while equipping employees with skills and experience mindset shifts to help navigate the volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world of today. 

 

The article is interesting as it discusses how CSR programmes can educate future corporate leaders while addressing needs and challenges of the community and society that they serve or sit within, which aligns with elements of Corporate International Service Learning (CISL) programmes.

Therapeutic interventions that incorporate training in mindfulness meditation have
become increasingly popular, but to date little is known about neural mechanisms associated
with these interventions. Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), one of the most
widely used mindfulness training programs, has been reported to produce positive effects
on psychological well-being and to ameliorate symptoms of a number of disorders. Here,
we report a controlled longitudinal study to investigate pre–post changes in brain
gray matter concentration attributable to participation in an MBSR program.

It’s probably happened more than once: You spend a lot of time trying to convince someone that their opinion on a particular issue is wrong. You take pains to make sure your argument is air-tight. But instead of coming around to your point of view, your conversation partner pushes back, still convinced of her ultimate rightness. “What do you mean poor people need social programs? They have the same opportunities as everyone else!” By the end of your debate, you’re faced with the same stalemate you had at the beginning—and your relationship may be feeling the strain.

5 Keys To Authentic Leadership

5 Keys To Authentic Leadership | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it
But author Jeff Davis discusses in his new book, The Power of Authentic Leadership: Activating the 13 Keys to Achieving Prosperity Through Authenticity, that authentic leadership prowess is a cornerstone trait needed for success not just at work, but in life as well. Through conversations with Senators, billionaires, New York Times bestselling authors, and extremely successful business owners, coupled with his own research and application, Davis believes that authentic leadership is the essential ingredient for prosperity.

Hardly theoretical, authentic leadership is something that can be used and applied on a day-to-day basis, and it is needed now more than ever. In a nutshell, it’s more about being true to your word and demonstrating by example than it is about getting people to follow you or telling others what to do.
