How to spot when you need to chill a bit...or even a lot!

donhornsby's curator insight, May 29, 2014 9:32 AM

(From the article): When we push our creativity and productivity to its limits, we can easily find ourselves teetering on brink of burnout. And there’s a fine line between being in the zone and falling down the slippery slope of mental, emotional and physical exhaustion. Therefore it’s worth occasionally referring back to this list to self-diagnose.

How To Give Regular Feedback and Still Get Work Done

How To Give Regular Feedback and Still Get Work Done | WorkLife | Scoop.it

But if you’re already busy, feeding this appetite can feel like one more task on your list. So what should you do?

 

I put this question to several business leaders recently, and the short answer was this: get over it.

 

"Every manager should be giving feedback to everybody," says Bernard Tyson, CEO of Kaiser Permanente. "They shouldn’t have to ask. It’s how you let someone know if he’s hitting the mark and what to do to become more effective." The Millennial appetite is a huge opportunity for business. "Millennials are after feedback because they’re trying to get better at what they’re interested in doing."

Amy Cuddy: Your body language shapes who you are - YouTube

Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how "power posing" -- standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident -- can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success."

Attention Regulates Emotion

Attention Regulates Emotion | WorkLife | Scoop.it
Extremes of every kind of attention are a problem. It’s important to find a balance between too narrow a focus, and attention that's too widely dispersed. Attention too far in either direction can throw you off your game.Many consider flow to be an ideal state. That’s when your concentration is utterly absorbed – and you're most likely being challenged. You’re better able to tune out your mental chatter because you’re fully engrossed in a task.

A great read. Please take the time to read this today...



(From the article): When it comes to leadership, humility is often perceived as weakness. That couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many ways to express humility — you might welcome feedback, admit mistakes, or simply treat others as equals. Your employees will view those as signs of strength, not weakness.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 22, 9:19 PM

I worked for a principal who presented about IDEO as being what we needed for creativity amongst teachers. He rarely acted with humility, if ever. That would be a good starting point for each of us.

That means bravery sometimes an extraordinary level of bravery--is required in business and entrepreneurship. Like taking a chance when others will not. Or following your vision no matter where it leads. Or standing up for what you believe in even though those beliefs are extremely unpopular.

 

Or simply doing the right thing, even though the right thing is definitely the hardest thing.

 

(Think of courage that way and you may be surprised by just how brave you really are.)

Why So Many of Us Experience a Midlife Crisis

A mid-career crisis can happen to anyone. It can hit even those who objectively have the most fulfilling jobs. When it does, it inflicts pain on the individual suffering it and causes productivity losses for employers. Yet, the phenomenon remains stigmatized and under-researched, leaving crucial questions unanswered. What are the causes? Why does this malaise seem to strike in mid-life? And how can those who are stuck in its grips shake themselves loose?

The 15 Diseases of Leadership, According to Pope Francis

Last year, just before Christmas, the Pope addressed the leaders of the Roman Curia — the Cardinals and other officials who are charged with running the church’s byzantine network of administrative bodies. The Pope’s message to his colleagues was blunt. Leaders are susceptible to an array of debilitating maladies, including arrogance, intolerance, myopia, and pettiness. When those diseases go untreated, the organization itself is enfeebled. To have a healthy church, we need healthy leaders.

Delighting in the possible | WorkLife | Scoop.it

It’s only natural to seek certainty, especially in the face of the unknown. Long ago, shamans performed intricate dances to summon rain. It didn’t matter that any success they enjoyed was random, as long as the tribe felt that its water supply was in capable hands. Nowadays, late nights of number crunching, feasts of modeling, and the familiar rituals of presentations have replaced the rain dances of old. But often, the odds of generating reliable insights are not much better.
