The Go-Nowhere Generation

The Go-Nowhere Generation | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
Americans have historically been on the move, but young people these days seem to prefer staying put.
Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

How to cope with the Y generation, the net is full with that... I came across with an interesting  article from 2012 about this generation from an angle I have not met before... This generation in America is firstly less "mover and shaker" (which arguably was the main driver of American prosperity...),  it's mobility is lower than earlier American generations, even they are less likely to get a driving licence by 18  (more Facebook/net, less time "on the road"), they are more sticked to the home, to the home-town... perhaps they were matured a much smoother ambiance, their parents have tried to give everything to them (sometimes over their capacity)...  of course, they are very creative, very free of lots of nightmares of their parents... and also, it might be that this article (and me...) overemphasize things... OK, we'll see soon...:-)))

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020

The 10 Most Important Work Skills in 2020 | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Last week I was sent a link to an interesting infographic on the ten most important work skills in 2020. It is a graphic respresentation of research done by the University of Phoenix and the Institute for the Future (see their PDF report here). What I like about this is that the team that put it together has looked at the significant drivers of change in society and then worked out what work skills will be required to address these. It’s a thought provoking read for parents, educators and businesses alike. Whilst none of the skills listed are really new, the emphasis is on their growing importance. The timeline is only 6 years away anyway, and so the focus was not on new skills but on what is becoming vital for success right now in our workplaces. You can find the infographic here, and a summary of their points below......

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

"...people are the culture..." yeahhh, that's why it takes time to change it if you want to change the ingrained one (modify it slowly, gradually...)  If to change people individually is difficult (and goes only with their consent and highly charged motivation....), consequently to change culture is even more difficult because the system effect... and your best, most brilliant strategy will fail if it does not take into account the culture and if necessary, the change of it... the pure, aseptic oarding desk blueprints will never take the real "3D" form, they are umrealizable because of this....

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Well, the balance... the balance is missing... it's so easy to blame the human relations approaches for the weak leadership... the point is that the apt leader knows exactly when to be approachable, listening and when he has to decide and has to give feedback (even he knows well how to give the feedback that it does help and not only hurts...)... it's rarely the approaches, it is mostly the applications which fail... sorry... of course, it's alarmng if half of the leaders answer to the question that he/she is not good in giving feedback... it is not so easy but there are several proven ways how to do it (e.g. the Gordon system but there are also others...)

The 5 Ways to Spot an Emotionally Intelligent Leader

The 5 Ways to Spot an Emotionally Intelligent Leader | Business Coaching | Scoop.it

Research has shown us that more than 90 percent of top leadership performers have a high amount of emotional intelligence, or EI.

The higher up the ladder that leaders are, the more people they impact and their EI becomes increasingly important. The person at the top sets the atmosphere that permeates the organization, including the emotional temperature.

Not only does a leader with low emotional intelligence have a negative impact on employee morale, it directly impacts staff retention. We know that the biggest reason that people give for leaving an organization is the relationship with those above them.

Here are five ways to spot an emotionally intelligent leader:

Miklos Szilagyi's insight:

Excellent, practical test... just thinking... whether if it is (EQ) his/(lesser   extent her...) blindspot, he/(she) will be able to spot these? Or at all will he understands the term? Or will he/(she) wants to find somebody to tell them and if so, he/she is capable to listen? It  - effective/active listening - is the part of the EQ competences.... hmmm.... looks like for some a vicious circle...

My colleague @wilsonsherriff and I have a regular conversation about how when a presentation really matters, no matter how skilled or experience you are, you want to run away or hide under the bed.

 

In fact, its often a bad sign if the presentation matters and you are not nervous. So its good to review tips to help you come across as confident even when you want to run for the hills.

  • Know Your Venue
  • Visualize Success
  • Know Your Audience 
  • Claim the three “audience truths.” One: They believe you’re the expert, so don’t tell them otherwise. Two: They want you to succeed, so they’re on your side. Three: They won’t know when you make a mistake, so don’t announce it
  • Realize you don’t look as nervous as you feel
  • Memorize your opening
  • Get psyched up before you go "on" - See Amy Cuddy  http://on.ted.com/Cuddy

This article touches on some keys to improving your retention in learning. It isn't enough to simply conceptualize - one needs to play, tinker, and practice content... or even better, teach what you want to learn.

 

"One of the studies reviewed by our lab was on meditation and howbeing in the moment decreases the noise in your brain, leading to improved scores on working memory and intelligence tests.

 

When you allow yourself to fully immerse in an experience, you give your brain a chance to make deeper connections, thus enhancing your ability to recall these connections in the future."

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it)

Social Media Publishing is dead (as we know it) | Business Coaching | Scoop.it
 Earlier this month, Facebook dropped a bombshell by not only acknowledging that Facebook pages’ organic reach was declining but also by telling us we shouldn’t expect them to recover. Facebook’s VP of Product for Facebook Ads, Brian Boland, went on to explain that this is the new world we live in now, that the same thing happened with search engines before and that we’d better get used to it. It’s true that many platforms go through a similar cycle: first, they present a great free opportunity, then more and more people grab it - decreasing the return for everyone until finally, the platform focuses on those ready to pay for play. It happened with Google Search; it happened with Apps (yes, Apple doesn’t sell ads but others do - such as coincidentally... Facebook). And now that all social media are publicly-traded company with ambitious revenue targets to reach, it will happen to social media as well.
So what does the decline of organic reach on Facebook and social platforms exactly mean on a practical basis? Continue reading →
