Surprising Research Says Negative Feedback Is Effective (and We Might Even Prefer It)

Surprising Research Says Negative Feedback Is Effective (and We Might Even Prefer It) | Career Insights | Scoop.it

Few people like hearing bad news about themselves. Getting a tough performance review or being called out for a mistake challenges our status and triggers feelings of shame, frustration, and helplessness. Negative feedback floods the brain with stress-inducing hormones that raise our threat awareness and causes a momentary loss of executive functioning.

If an unfavorable report makes you think you’ve lost your mind, it’s probably because you have.

But before we write off the criticisms we receive from bosses and friends, here’s the surprising part about negative feedback: It might actually be good for us.

Andrea Ross's curator insight, July 28, 2017 9:09 PM

As long as feedback is given constructively then it's a win win situation. It's when it's delivered the wrong way when problems arise and people feel threatened. This is a topic I cover in my Billing Manager course in Singapore so if you would like to nail this skill then please reach out.

The competitive advantage of deliberate practice

The competitive advantage of deliberate practice | Career Insights | Scoop.it

One of the most critical competitive advantages for any organization is the skill level at which their people have important conversations. Interpersonal interactions, whether customer-facing, coaching, diversity & inclusion or leadership, can positively or negatively affect an organization more than a marketing campaign, a recognizable logo, a great product, or a good price.
 
Business leaders look to L&D to deliver this competitive advantage across the organization with the expectation of a greater return on their investment every year.

We are about to witness a fundamental shift in the way L&D organizations deliver on this mandate. To be an expert at an interpersonal skill, whether internal or client-facing, knowledge of the process is only half of the equation.

Converting knowledge into a skill, or crossing the ‘know – do’ gap will be the new strategic objective for leadership and L&D.

3 Small Things Every Person Can Do to Reduce Stress in Their Office

3 Small Things Every Person Can Do to Reduce Stress in Their Office | Career Insights | Scoop.it

In a world of tight deadlines, it’s no wonder that some of your stress might seep out and affect your colleagues. But — because they’re under pressures of their own — you risk perpetuating a vicious circle, where you mirror and magnify each other’s frenzy.

You can’t control their behavior, but you can take charge of your own. There are obvious ways to tamp down the stress you inflict on others, such as refraining from yelling or making sarcastic comments. But those are only the most visible ways one risks alienating one’s coworkers; to truly stop the office pathology, you have to look deeper. Here are three subtle but powerful strategies to ratchet down the pressure and ensure you’re not subjecting your colleagues to undue stress and frustration.

Everyone Hates Setting Goals. Here's How Google Makes It Easier for Its Employees

Everyone Hates Setting Goals. Here's How Google Makes It Easier for Its Employees | Career Insights | Scoop.it

It's that time of year--leaders everywhere are charging employees with the task of establishing goals for 2018. If you've never been through a structured process, this exercise can be daunting, and frankly, feel like a big waste of time. I can assure you, it's not. 

 

Setting goals is critical. Goals provide direction, help you focus, prioritize your time and energy, and ensure that you can objectively prove you've advanced the company's agenda.

 

But just any goal won't do. Research shows that goals are not only important but also that the level of specificity and difficulty matters. Goals that are both clear and challenging drive higher levels of performance.

 

To set their teams up for success, many organizations use SMART goals. Google leaders use something a little different--"Objectives and Key Results" (OKRs). On Google's re:Work site, a resource that shares the company's perspective on people operations, Google explains the concept.

Kim Colwell's curator insight, February 13, 8:10 PM
This is a very interesting way to set goals.  I've heard of many different ways, however, have never been introduced to this.  I like the collaborative effort, the transparency, and the simplicity.  There are different templates that can be used.  I'm still reviewing what is out there I'm leaning towards Weekdone.  I can see the framework working not only as a company goal setting plan, it can work as a family or personal goal planning system. 
 
Heidi Freeman's curator insight, February 16, 10:53 AM

This could be a goal-setting technique that may work for you! Goal setting is a daunting task, but one we really need to master. OKR, Objective and Key Results, allows you to dream big and then figure out how you will measure your progress.

Ann Zaslow-Rethaber's curator insight, February 16, 12:28 PM

Interesting article from a company that clearly has had success in meeting their objectives.

These Are The 4 Emotional-Intelligence Job Skills You’ll Need In The Future

All the data suggesting that coding is rapidly becoming an essential skill for any job–not just one in tech–only tells one side of the story.

 

The other side indicates that soft skills such as critical thinking, problem solving, attention to detail, and writing proficiency top the list of what hiring managers find missing from job seekers’ personal tool kits. But according to theWorld Economic Forum’s Future of Jobs Report, one the job skills that will make a candidate competitive in the job market of the future is emotional intelligence. The WEF predicts it will be among the top ten in 2020.

 

How emotionally intelligent are you now? There are several ways to test it (including one that’s so accurate it’s creepy). The good news is that even if you’re a bit deficient on some traits, emotional intelligence can be improved. Here are some suggestions on boosting your EQ right away.

A Surprisingly Easy Way To Get Your Foot In The Door

A Surprisingly Easy Way To Get Your Foot In The Door | Career Insights | Scoop.it

One of the most frustrating aspects of job searching is feeling like you’ve already reached out to everyone you know. You’ve asked every contact you can possibly think of if you could buy them a cup of coffee—from your first boss to that former co-worker you didn't even particularly like. Yet, you’re still just as far away from a new role as you were when you started.

I know it sounds too good to be true, but there is another way to expand your network, meet new people and make meaningful connections.
