How Positive Thoughts Build Skills, Boost Health, and Improve Work

How Positive Thoughts Build Skills, Boost Health, and Improve Work | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it
Positive thinking sounds useful on the surface. (Most of us would prefer to be positive rather than negative.) But “positive thinking” is also a soft and fluffy term that's easy to dismiss.

Happiness is both the precursor to success and the result of it, but be sure to define what success is for you.

John Michel's curator insight, October 28, 2013 5:29 PM

Research is beginning to reveal that positive thinking is about much more than just being happy or displaying an upbeat attitude. Positive thoughts can actually create real value in your life and help you build skills that last much longer than a smile.

The 1 Company Culture Rule 99% of People Are Afraid to Follow but Should

The 1 Company Culture Rule 99% of People Are Afraid to Follow but Should | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Company culture is created by following this simple rule. Being employed by a company, or regularly working with the same group of people, does not mean you're actually part of a team. In fact, that experience is much closer to eating at the same lunch table every day rather than showing up to practice with a collective of like-minded teammates.

The Best Companies Know How to Balance Strategy and Purpose

The Best Companies Know How to Balance Strategy and Purpose | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

Most companies have articulated their purpose — the reason they exist. But very few have made that purpose a reality for their organizations.

 

Consider Nokia. Before the iPhone was introduced, in 2007, Nokia was the dominant mobile phone maker with a clearly stated purpose — “Connecting people” — and an aggressive strategy for sustaining market dominance. Seeking to extend its technological edge (particularly in miniaturization), it acquired more than 100 startup companies while pursuing a vast portfolio of research and product development projects. In 2006 alone, Nokia introduced 39 new mobile-device models. Few imagined that this juggernaut, brandishing vast resources with such steely determination, could be quickly brought down.

 

In retrospect, it seems inevitable. Nokia was so immersed in executing its strategy that it lost sight of its purpose. When Steve Jobs introduced the first iPhone as “a leapfrog product that is way smarter than any mobile device has ever been, and super-easy to use,” Apple started “connecting people” at astounding new levels. Nokia’s purpose had been co-opted, making its myriad strengths irrelevant. The once-dominant Nokia soon lost much of its market cap and was eventually acquired by Microsoft.

Spinning Straw into Gold: Dynamics of a Rumpelstiltskin Style of Leadership

Spinning Straw into Gold: Dynamics of a Rumpelstiltskin Style of Leadership | 21st Century Leadership | Scoop.it

 

"The purpose of this qualitative case study was to examine gender differences in the approach, analysis, and resolution of ethical dilemmas within professional communication posed by the employment of spin.

 

Spin is defined as the deliberate shading and manipulation of language to achieve a desired reaction from followers, with effective use resulting in the maintenance of organizational and position power.

 

Read against the backdrop of the work of Gilligan (1982), who argues for an ethic of care and responsibility in the resolution of ethical dilemmas, and Kohlberg (1984), who argues the centrality of a morality of justice as integral to this resolution, results of this study challenges the authors’ respective stances relative to a gendered meta-analysis and resolution of ethical dilemmas, particularly when applied within the culture of higher education.

 

The additional aim of this study was to capture and contrast from male and female participants the variables they viewed as salient in their resolution of what the researcher has argued and posed as an ethical dilemma within professional communication, the employment of spin.

 

Thus, professional communication dynamics, linguistic negotiation of the workplace, and the language and leadership tools necessary for ownership of occupational power were examined and contrasted by gender.

 

The study was limited to five leaders in positions of influence in the field of higher education.

 

The study addressed five research questions. All of the questions focused on participant interpretation of a researcher-developed instrument labeled Gauge of Language Negotiation.

 

Each of the participants provided an ethical dilemma from their professional experience, an interpretation of the Gauge of Language Negotiation, a representation and charting of each of the ethical dilemmas offered along the gauge continuum, and a conceptual description of their thinking relative to their approach, analysis, and resolution of ethical dilemmas involving spin, with direct application to the Gauge of Language Negotiation.

 

Results of interviews revealed parallel approach, analysis, and resolution of ethical dilemmas employing the use of spin across gender lines.

 

Leader patterns of observation relative to the approach to ethical dilemmas were exhibited in five conceptual areas: empathy, focus on players/relationships, focus on issues, focus on rationale, and focus on strategy toward solution.

 

Leader patterns of observation relative to the analysis of ethical dilemmas were also exhibited in five conceptual areas: dilemma conflict identification, identification of moral pull, salience, weighing, and resolution of ethical scenarios.

 

The types of dilemmas offered by participant leaders, as well as the end goals sought by the leaders revealed consistent ethics of care and justice in dilemma resolution and effects on leader constituencies. " by Karen Smith

Dr. Karen Dietz's curator insight, November 20, 1:47 PM

Did you know that there are 3 kinds of empathy? Yep.

  1. Cognitive
  2. Emotional
  3. Compassionate

 

This post explains all three. Plus the author shares recent research on the impact of empathy in business/leadership success. The author then gives 3 areas to focus on to build empathy:

  1. Be present
  2. Actively listen
  3. Put yourself in the other's shoes

 

The problem? These 3 areas are so general they are almost meaningless. So let's fix it. Want to build your empathy skills fast? Learning business storytelling skills is the most efficient + effective way to do so. Take action on these 3 storytelling practices:

  1. Start small and take your time. Share a personal experience with only 1 person present. Look into their eyes. Experience their reactions to your story. Experience what they like/what grabs them. Shift the story when you sense them drifting off. Learn what connects and what doesn't.
  2. Listen appreciatively. That's not listening actively, which includes paraphrasing what you heard. Don't interrupt. Just listen fully and delightedly without an agenda. Hard to do. Practice makes perfect. Clients who do this report entire worlds opening up to them. For more concrete steps, listen to my TEDx talk where I share exactly how to listen appreciatively.
  3. Listen to and share lots of stories. The more stories you listen to you stronger your empathy skills (backed by research). Sharing stories in return also builds empathy skills and deepens relationships. 'Gotta love that.

The main factors causing this are workload pressures, including tight deadlines and too much responsibility and a lack of managerial support.
