The Jerk Quotient for Leaders

The Jerk Quotient for Leaders | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Jerks expect respect but don’t extend it. The gap between respect extended and respect expected is the jerk quotient for leaders. Peons earn respect. But, the power chair is enough for jerks. .

Los cuatro "villanos" de la toma de decisiones y 4 tácticas para vencerlos.

Los cuatro "villanos" de la toma de decisiones y 4 tácticas para vencerlos. | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Los seres humanos son notablemente malos para tomar decisiones. Parece que estamos luchando con esto tanto en nuestra vida personal como profesional.

 

Por ejemplo:

 

Cuarenta y uno por ciento de los primeros matrimonios terminan en divorcio.Cuarenta y cuatro por ciento de los abogados no recomendaría la carrera de derecho para los jóvenes.El ochenta y tres por ciento de las fusiones y adquisiciones de empresas no crean ningún valor para los accionistas.

 

Según los autores superventas Chip Heath y Dan Heath, "Cuando se trata de tomar decisiones , está claro que nuestros cerebros son instrumentos imperfectos". Si nos basamos en el análisis complejo o reacciones viscerales, los resultados son casi los mismos.

 

Por desgracia, sólo estar conscientes de estas deficiencias no soluciona el problema, aunque saber que somos cortos de vista nos ayuda a ver . La verdadera pregunta es: ¿Cómo podemos hacer mejor?

 

Por eso los hermanos Heath escribieron su nuevo libro, Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work. Pasé el pasado fin de semana leyéndolo.

Does power make you mean?

Does power make you mean? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Research suggests that a default brain mechanism may cause us to lose empathy when we gain power. So promotions really do make us mean.

 

In one of the first studies to make this claim, scientists now say a default brain mechanism may cause us to lose empathy when we gain power...

 

Obhi and his team found feelings of increased powerfulness shut down our mirroring system -- and potentially our empathy -- through a default mechanism in our brains.

 

Liza Aziz-Zadeh, assistant professor at the University of Southern California, studies empathy from a neuroscience perspective and says the findings are interesting. "People who activate their mirroring system more, also score higher on empathy."

MIRROR NEURONS:  People who activate their mirroring system more, also score higher on empathy.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, October 30, 2013 9:29 AM

Very interesting.  I especially like the following section:

 

"What we have found is that when people get power and move up, but don't understand how to relate, don't communicate well, and appear insensitive, cold, and authoritarian -- that ultimately derails their careers," he says.

 

This comes at an enormous cost in time, money, and morale to companies, he adds.

 

 

"In practical terms, this type of research may eventually be used and put together with training programs like mindfulness training and educational workshops for executives to deal with power better," says Obhi, but adds that we are only just beginning to understand the effects of power.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:08 PM

This is an interesting study. What about those who begin with little or no empathy?

Is the capacity for empathy a weakness in a CEO?

Is the capacity for empathy a weakness in a CEO? | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

In his new book, The Everything Store: Jeff Bezos and the Age of Amazon, which came out last week, business journalist Brad Stone traces the connection between Bezos’ distinctive personality traits and Amazon’s work culture and organizational ethos, which he describes as “gladiatorial” and “notoriously confrontational”.

 

He cites Amazon employees who “advance the theory that Bezos, like Jobs, Gates, and Oracle co-founder Larry Ellison, lacks empathy.

 

The interesting question is whether effectiveness of a CEO increase with progressively lower people skills and more and more of an anal-retentive devotion to shareholder value that can see little else?

 

In one of the most famous studies of CEO psychology, titled Which CEO characteristics and abilities matter?, Steven Kaplan, Mark Klebanov and Morten Sorensen assessed the personalities of 316 CEOs and their company’s performances. “Success is more strongly related to execution, resoluteness, overconfidence-related skills than to interpersonal-related skills,” they concluded. In other words, a CEO who is warm, flexible, empathetic will not be as successful as another who is cold, inflexible and has no empathy. People like Bezos and Jobs were, in this sense, pretty much typical of the successful CEO personality type.

Some of the greatest fortunes and empires in history were created by people who started with nothing. Today, the author celebrates 25 of these iconic figures – businessmen, technology entrepreneurs, even celebrities and athletes – by recalling the tales of their rise to glory.

 

Don’t feel bad if your favorites aren’t on the list, this is just a glimpse of the many visionaries we’ve seen throughout history and there are countless others who also deserve attention. While each of them took a slightly different path to financial greatness, virtually all of them started from very humble beginnings.

Teni Gharibian's curator insight, October 29, 2013 12:56 AM

I definitely agree that managers may ask employees to complete certain tasks and put a lot of pressure on them to do so. Sometimes they won't care how it is done as long as they are successful and manage to get it done. I also agree that employees will feel pressured to do a good job and make unethical decisions such as doing something illegal in order to get the job done.
