Rescooping ... thanks for sharing!

 

Shared values and belief in a common organizational purpose are also the foundation of fostering trust in your organization.  So another version of this quote could be "It's not hard to build trust once we know what our common values are."

Cruise Line Class's curator insight, September 1, 2013 12:31 PM

Emotional Intelligence isn't about being nice all of the time, it is about being intelligent with your emotions. 

 

To me it is about undestanding who we are, and what our hot buttons and blind spots are.  When we have a pretty good handle on how we are hard-wired, we have the power to change habits and learn how to respond on brand -- instead of react with our emotions.

 

In my humble opinion when we let our emotions overpower us...we have lost sight of the goal and who we are.  (Our best self)

 

What are your thougths?

 

Make it a great day!

Great article!  I agree with the noted traits, and also believe that Energy is usually married with passion.  Focus is usually coupled with purpose.  Empathy is vital.  Flexibility/Resilience/Adapability is huge!

 

Instead of the ability to tolerate conflict....I believe changing the mind-set to expect and mine for positive dialogue.  Where passion and different views are heard -- yet one remains open and curious to listen to ideas from others.

 

Instead of submerging one's ego....how about being intelligent with emotions, understanding hot buttons, and the ability to realize that when the ego does get in the way...I may have lost sight of the team goal, and it has become all about me instead of the goal.

 

 that energy, passion, and purpose

 

This article outlines 6 common traits:

1.  Energy and Physical Stamina

2.  Focus

3.  Sensitivity to Others

4.  Flexibility

5.  Ability to tolerate conflict

6. Submerging one's ego and getting along

 

Interested to hear your opinions of this article.  What is missing?

Don Cloud's comment, August 29, 2013 12:31 AM
Seems so obvious that any organization of size does not need 1,000 copies of the same person with the same talent. After all, what kind of football team would you have if you tried to make all the players great quarterbacks?

What's required in any organization, business, industry, military unit is a collection of people with different talents/strengths energized towards a higher purpose. A good leader's purpose is to recruit, grow, and mobilize these diverse people with diverse talents to work together -- that's when the magic can happen ... when the impossible becomes the achievable ... when obstacles become things to be hurdled ... when setbacks become opportunities ... and when the total of the organization becomes more than the mere sum of its people parts.

The interesting thing is that persuasive people are not known for always getting their way.  They do however know how to influence, and don't allow their emotions to get in the way of achieving a goal.

 

The article discusses 7; however, below are the top 4 that I completely agree with and my take:

 

 

- Persuasive people listen, and listen, and listen (they sincerely listen to understand, and remain open to better ideas

 

- Persuasive people are purposeful.  They do start with the end in mind, and are clear on what success looks like and the goal

 

- Persuasive people know when to stay quiet.  They are not Yes, But people

 

- Persuasive people know how to connect.  This to me is so important, because they know how to skillfully adapt their message to get the best out of them and others in a way that they are able to genuinely connect

 

Take a read, and please give us your insight on what else should be on the list!

 

Make it a great day!

Great article...thank you for sharing with us Susan!

 

With the majority of the organizations that I work with the top execs still seem to have limited online presence.  It is true that are so busy keeping up with their operation, and prioritize the face-to-face as well as traditional methods.

 

Also, depending on the position -- they need to be careful on what they can post.  What advice do you have for the top level execs who do want to influence online without having to jump through hoops with PR/Marketing/Legal to approve their posts?
