Understanding My Own “Immunity to Change”

Understanding My Own “Immunity to Change” | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Change is not always easy. At least, not for me.

 

Consider this:

 

I’ve recently signed up at MyFitnessPal, a site that allows me to track how much I eat and how much I exercise. I’m hoping for the best, despite my history. I’ve not done very well with diet and exercise over the last few years, and that’s being very generous. Changing both my eating and fitness regimes (both what and when), has not been something that I’ve enthusiastically embraced or—let’s face it—accomplished. Something seems to be standing in my way.

 

I think it might be me.

Why Focusing on Weaknesses Doesn’t Create Exceptional Leadership

Why Focusing on Weaknesses Doesn’t Create Exceptional Leadership | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it
There are a variety of benefits that come from building strengths:

 

There is psychological problem that some people experience called body dysmorphic disorder, sometimes referred to as imagined ugliness. People with this disorder exaggerate a small flaw in their appearance and perceive themselves to be completely ugly or grotesque. They cannot stop thinking about this minor or imagined flaw.

 

In many ways, believing that a small weakness will crater a person’s overall effectiveness is a similar serious misperception.

 

In talking with groups about strengths and weaknesses, we often ask the groups to think of the best leader that they have ever worked with, know of, or read about. After describing this leader’s profound strengths, we ask the question, “Did this leader have any weaknesses?” Almost everyone says yes; and when we ask people to describe what the weakness was, we are frequently surprised to hear things like:

 

- He would occasionally lose his temper.”
- “This leader was very shortsighted.”
- “She failed to appreciate other people.”
- “He did not understand the technology.”

The magic of good service

The magic of good service | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

THE customer is king. So some firms have started appointing chief customer officers (CCOs) to serve the king more attentively. 

 

But often they use new technology to build barriers between themselves and the paying public.

 

It is, for example, almost impossible to call a company and talk to a human being. First you spend half an hour finding the carefully concealed telephone number. When you dial it, an android answers.

Richard Branson on Why We Need More Women in the Boardroom

Richard Branson on Why We Need More Women in the Boardroom | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

I recently watched 12 Angry Men -- that classic 1957 film about a jury struggling to decide the fate of an 18-year-old man who has been charged with murder.

 

The movie gives you a sense of how the legal system worked in the United States back then, when juries were less diverse. By today's standards, we would find it unsettling if a jury were comprised of 12 middle-aged white men. So why have so many business leaders been slow to take notice when women are absent from the boards of their companies?

Cuppa: 5 Things School Leaders Should Consider While Implementing Change | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

 It is unreasonable to think that any new initiative will receive 100% buy-in. There will be some who just don’t like it. What is important is to continue a dialogue with those who struggle to embrace change.

 

Perhaps over time they will come to see the benefits, or perhaps not. You will simply have to accept that you disagree and continue to move forward.
