Anne Egros's curator insight, March 19, 2013 2:09 PM

From the article :


Simplistic stereotypes cannot be right, because everywhere we find a range of personality variation: Some people are ambitious, others are lazy; some are flexible, others are rigid; some are skeptical, others are gullible. But the ways in which people differ are always along the same lines, the universal dimensions of personality.


Our personality is what we really are at heart, and is it something we share with all of humanity.

“It’s Not About You” Feedback Indicators

 

~The feedback-giver is insecure and uncomfortable (warning, there could still be stuff to learn)

 

~The feedback is inconsistent with all other sources (ahh, but perhaps they have a different perspective)

 

~You have other signs that they don’t have your best interest at heart (are you sure?)

 

~You aren’t in the right job, but they are trying to mold you in (oops, this is about you, but the feedback will feel wrong… find a more aligned job)

 

~Okay, the guy’s just a jerk (sometimes that’s true)?

A Note About Introverts and Teams

A Note About Introverts and Teams | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

If you encounter someone who considers the prospect of working on a team to be a form of long-acting torture - you just might find that they would describe themselves as an "introvert".

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, February 8, 2013 10:08 AM

But, introverts - those who tend to "focus inward" - still deserve their time to shine in the realm of teams. For the 50% of the US that describe themselves as an "introvert", team membership shouldn't boil down to becoming louder to be heard.

 

As expressed by Laura Richardson, VP at of The Innovation Games Company, "Introverts shouldn't be relegated to catching the team leader in the hallway, after the meeting to share their opinions comfortably".

4 Steps to Mindfulness

4 Steps to Mindfulness | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

In today’s fast-paced world, we hardly have a spare minute to do the things for ourselves that help us stay energized and focused. By focusing for a few minutes a couple of times a day to intentionally breathe can completely change our disposition. A study out of the University of Pennsylvania shows that carving out a mere 12 minutes a day to do just that—intentionally breathe—can go a long way toward improving your mood. In addition, meditating can help you get better quality sleep, show more kindness towards others, and reduce inflammation.

 

Here are a series of mini-meditations you can call on throughout your day when you’re feeling like you are coming apart at the seams and need to find your center.

How to Deliver Critical Feedback that Sticks

How to Deliver Critical Feedback that Sticks | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

Effective leaders often say they prefer to earn employees’ respect than to befriend them. The test comes when these bosses need to dish out criticism.

 

If you want to be liked by employees, you may muzzle your critical feedback for fear that they will take it the wrong way. It’s easier to keep quiet or drop in­­direct hints rather than come right out and say, “Let’s discuss how your performance needs to improve.”

 

To express criticism that sinks in, take these steps:

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 5, 2012 6:19 AM


Business owners often struggle when it comes to delivering critical feedback to an employee, especially when aspects of the employees performance, leave much to be desired.


Unfortunately, if a business owner or manager wants their critical feedback to be accepted by the employee, the feedback must be direct and not be delivered as hints or polite requests for certain changes to take place.


This good article, suggests employees need to be told upfront what exactly the relevant issue is, and it then suggests three steps to take to ensure that the critical feedback is received appropriately and the message sinks in in a way that will result in the requested outcomes.


Bond Beebe Accountants & Advisors's curator insight, December 18, 2012 8:29 AM

Providing effective feedback is an essential skill for managers at every level.  As this piece suggests, offering concrete, detailed direction is key to employee success.

 

ThinDifference's curator insight, March 10, 2013 9:47 AM

Great three step way to deliver feedback. We need to me more intentional in our feedback so all involved get better in what we do.

How Gossip Becomes Bullying

How Gossip Becomes Bullying | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it

It’s Up to Us

It’s time for guerilla action against bullying gossip. Waiting for employers to develop policies and procedures about bullying in general and gossip in particular leaves us powerless. What can we do now to stop gossip?

Some action steps:

 

Don’t participate in the gossip behavior

Don’t make things worse by repeating it

Don’t exaggerate

Be aware of the power of gossip

Don’t get on the mobbing bandwagon

Defend the target with facts

How and why do we pick our friends?

How and why do we pick our friends? | Your Personality is Your Thumbprint | Scoop.it
Studies of dolphins, primates and humans show the reason we choose the companions we do is more complex, and perhaps less honorable, than we might think.

 

“Friendship," wrote CS Lewis, “is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.’” He wasn't the only one. Plato wrote "similarity begets friendship." in his 360 BCE play Phaedrus. And Aristotle had the same idea when he wrote, "some define it as a matter of similarity; they say that we love those who are like ourselves."
