Why you should doubt yourself

Why you should doubt yourself | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Therefore certainty is not only something of no use but is also in fact damaging, if we value reliability. Carlo Rovelli We seem so desperate to know things ‘for certain’. 

I think there are many reasons why.

At the benign end, ‘knowing’ is an anchor that gives us a sense of ground, even if it’s illusory.

We need that. It helps us navigate ambiguity and provided we’re open to reassessing ideas as more evidence emerges or as we’re impacted by experience that’s okay.

The problem is when we attach to being certain or confuse our sense of self with being right.

Oh the trouble that brings.

David Hain's insight:

"What if we stopped punishing mistakes and recognized, instead, that mistake-making is wired into us and has a purpose, that it’s fundamental to innovation and growth?"


Great question and article of faith!

What you believe about work either weakens you or makes you stronger.
David Hain's insight:

"Most people live lives of quiet desperation because they focus on things that they cannot control: outside events, stuff that happened in the past and what other people are thinking. As a result, they fail to focus on what they CAN control: their own beliefs, their own attitude, their own emotions, and their own behavior."


Some great tips here.

Bring Your Soul to Work Part 5 - Trusting Love

Bring Your Soul to Work Part 5 - Trusting Love | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

Letting love into your leadership is risky. Love involves the risk of pain or loss. Love makes you vulnerable. It pushes you out of your comfort zone. Love brings your emotions into play, clouds your thinking, makes you less “objective”. Love can be misunderstood. Love doesn’t show up on the balance sheet.  Love is probably not in your strategic plan.

Kindness is Contagious, New Study Finds | Science in Society

Kindness is Contagious, New Study Finds | Science in Society | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

It is natural for us to seek the positive emotions that accompany seeing and doing acts of kindness, said Joseph Ferrari, professor of psychology at DePaul University. If we saw more positive stories in the media, it might spur an even greater trend of compassion, he said.

"If we had people reading about random acts of kindness it would spread and people would help more people," he said. "People want to be happy."

David Hain's insight:

When we see someone else help another person it gives us a good feeling, which in turn causes us to go out and do something altruistic ourselves, the study found, which was the first of its kind to systematically document this tendency in human nature.

9 Simple Ways of Building Resilience - General Leadership

9 Simple Ways of Building Resilience - General Leadership | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it
Building resilience is what allows you to keep your emotions from hijacking your good reason, equipping you to detach yourself from the immediacy of what’s occurring in order to gain a broader, positive perspective.
David Hain's insight:

"Within each person there is a capacity for resilience – the ability to turn loss into gain; to transform tragedy into triumph; to choose to be strengthened by adversity. In effect, resilience is an attitude built on one’s internal belief that no matter what you may be facing today, it need not dominate the direction of your life tomorrow. It’s an attitude that informs our actions, encouraging us to struggle forward when it would be easier to stand still or worse, slide backward into feelings of depression, self-pity or despair."

The Compassionate Listening Project

The Compassionate Listening Project | Coaching Leaders | Scoop.it

The Compassionate Listening Project, founded by Leah Green, grew out of the work of Gene Knudsen Hoffman, a Quaker and international peacemaker. Our formal training program, in existence for approximately ten years, is aimed at deepening people's ability to listen with an open heart in difficult situations and learning to humanize those we consider "other". We are grateful to the many people we have learned from over the years who have helped make Compassionate Listening the profound practice it is today.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, July 17, 2013 7:06 AM

Thanks David Hain!  This is a relevant and critical post by LaRae Quy that highlights one of the pillars of leadership; taking responsibility instead of blaming others.

 

From the post:

 

Listen to Yourself When You Speak:

 

In conversations, do you have a habit of blaming others for things when things don’t go the way you want?

 

Rather than accept blame and responsibility for your actions, do you point the finger at coworkers, your parent’s influence, your upbringing, or others? Stop and listen to yourself.

 

If you hear blaming patterns in your speech, you can stop them.
