If you make a person feel smart and insightful, that person will enjoy your company.

Millennials Are Rewriting the Rules of Work and Entrepreneurship

Millennials Are Rewriting the Rules of Work and Entrepreneurship | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

HR and communication challenge s ahead... What do Millennials want? Flexibility and independence top the list, according to a new study, “Millennials and the Future of Work,” from oDesk.... Millennial workers want freedom and the flexibility to work how they want. Many Millennials have a “freelance” attitude. Almost nine in 10 (89 percent) say they prefer to work when and where they choose (compared to a corporate, 9-to-5 job). When comparing freelance work to “regular” jobs, Millennials say freelancing gives them more freedom to: - Work wherever they like (92 percent). - Work whenever they like (87 percent). - Work on more interesting projects (69 percent). - Travel while working (half say they’d prefer this to taking vacation time). You Might Have a Closet Freelancer on Your Staff Many Millennials are biding their time at regular jobs and freelancing on the side until the time is right to leave. Nearly three-fourths (71 percent) of those who work regular jobs want to quit to be entirely independent; 61 percent say they likely will quit within two years, and 17 percent say they definitely will....

Very interesting... Can this be a sign of changing times? Fascinating read, thanks Christine!

 

From the article:

 

Before Yale can determine whether the test can help them enhance the admissions process, the results first have to prove that it can predict certain outcomes. For now, Yale's School of Management and School of Medicine are allowing applicants the option to take the test, then they will study the results in a few years to determine whether using the applicant's emotional intelligence quotient would have "led to different results, predicted problems, or predicted unusual achievement."

Emma Sue Prince's curator insight, May 16, 2013 4:22 AM

This is all about self-awareness. The degree to which people have this, or not, varies greatly. But the good news is that self-awareness can be developed. How? By gradually building understanding of self and why we do what we do, behave as we do, react the way we do and what causese these. In this way we can then begin to control and manage our emotions more effectively.

Some are based on changing thoughts, others on changing behavior, and still others involve physiological responses. The more aspects of anxiety I can decrease, the lower the chance of relapse post-therapy. Below are six strategies that you can use to help your anxiety.:

Voice of the Graduate | McKinsey & Co.


Via Jim Lerman, David Hain

Jim Lerman's curator insight, May 14, 2013 5:12 PM

From the introduction

 

"There’s a paradox facing American society today. The demonstrable economic benefit of investing in higher education has never been greater. Research in the United States shows an enduring positive impact on earnings directly associated with the level of postsecondary learning a person attains. And research from around the world shows a link between college education and levels of individual and national well-being more broadly.

 

"Yet at the same time, as the survey discussed in this report will show, this potential does not appear to be fully realized in the lived experience of many recent graduates.The gap between higher education’s undeniable value and the concerns many recent graduates nonetheless report should become the impetus for change. In a sense, the “voice of the graduate” revealed in this survey amounts to a cry for help—an urgent call to deepen the relevance of higher education to employment and entrepreneurship so that the promise of higher education is fulfilled.

"By focusing on the voice of America’s young people, this report, by design, raises more questions than it answers. Our hope is that the underappreciated student perspective can serve as a fresh spur to a conversation that seems overdue.

 

"As every thoughtful observer recognizes, the improvements today’s graduates are calling for cannot be pursued by any education stakeholder working alone. Instead, as McKinsey’s work around the world on its “education to employment” initiative suggests, it is only when employers,education providers, public officials, families, and youth advocates work together that effective solutions can be forged."

My favorite reminder from this conference is that "Each of us has the power inside us. It shows up in a choice we make to stand up, be counted, have our voice be heard, decide today’s the day we will solve the problem that bothers us, or lend a hand to those who are doing it. We choose in the purchases we make. We choose in the messages we spread.  We choose in the problems we solve."

How does a leader quell the everyday, inner conflicts caused by the heavy responsibility, the need for constant self-control and the inevitable crises – and still remain an effective leader?

There Is No Such Thing As A Dumb Idea

There Is No Such Thing As A Dumb Idea | Wise Leadership | Scoop.it

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE A DUMB IDEA?

There Is No Such Thing As A Dumb Idea

We should learn: All our thinking and attitude to the own ideas is our own perception of reality. We think that an idea is not good enough because we don't trust our own talent and potential. 

The point is that every idea has merit, because whether or not the idea sounds good, or is laid out perfectly, it can be worked and modified and morphed into absolute brilliance.

Is it not often the case that we have a wonderful idea and instead of pursuing it and carrying it out, we reflect and rationalize the idea if it is good enough? And while we think and think, the idea loses suddenly value and at last we discard the idea. When this process is repeated steadily, self-confidence gets lost and one day we are convinced to have only dumb ideas.

We should learn that self-doubt is counterproductive for creativity!

BELIEVE IN YOUR TALENTS - BELIEVE IN YOU!

BELIEVE IN YOUR IDEAS!
