Bullying: Something That Leaders Cannot Afford to Ignore

Bullying: Something That Leaders Cannot Afford to Ignore | Creativity Outlet | Scoop.it

So, what exactly is bullying?
According to the Workplace Bullying Institute (WBI), Workplace Bullying is repeated, health-harming mistreatment of one or more persons (the targets) by one or more perpetrators that takes one or more of the following forms:


-Verbal abuse
-Offensive conduct/behaviors (including nonverbal) which are threatening, humiliating, or intimidating
-Work interference — sabotage — which prevents work from getting done


How to Spot It:


Most likely, you won’t catch the bully right-handed, screaming at the target. But watch out for some more subtle clues, for example:

 

-Nonverbal bully behavior in meetings (interrupting, sarcasm, rolling eyes etc.)
-An employee being cut-off from communication (not included in email-lists, meeting invitations etc.)
-Signs of fear and intimidation by the potential target, lower work performance and frequent absences

Does it pay to know your type?

Does it pay to know your type? | Creativity Outlet | Scoop.it
In this infographic, you'll get an overview of the 16 types to give a sense of how these bigger-than-life personalities fit in the Myers-Briggs philosophy. The official test is based on Carl Jung’s work in psychological typology.

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, April 28, 2013 9:14 AM

Well, the first claim that the unknown writer makes (no by-line attributed), that universities spend "millions of dollars" each year giving this personality test to their students, is just buncomb: a succinct fairly accurate version of Myers-Briggs is online for free, and that's what we ask students to take.  No one pays for the personality indicator except by means of time to take it and internet connectivity.

 

We then ask the students to write reflections of whether this type suits them or not, and what that means in terms of their study habits and needs. So students are not asked to conform to their types, as this article wants its readers to do; they are asked instead to analyze their typology for accuracy and helpfulness in understanding themselves and their type's relationship to their areas of study.

 

As for the "infographic," I've worked with students to analyze, as a survey, the questions and results of Myers-Briggs in argument classes before, and there's no doubt that the questions asked lead to the answers given.  So it's kind of bizzare that someone *ascribed* types to historical figures who never took the test (or if they did, never made their types known) and then show these figures as "typical" of the types.

 

I personally come up with two of my letters always changing back and forth (INTJ?  ENTP? INTP?  ENTJ?).

 

This "article" is misleading and silly.  In fact, I'll bet that many of these people actually did take the Myers-Briggs: the test was invented back in the '20s and '30s by a mother and daughter who wanted the daughter to marry, knowing what the man was really like.  Actually published in 1943, it was a standard psychological tool for many years; anyone who had psycological counseling in the '60s and '70s probably took it. 

 

So these unnamed writers of this article might do well to search archives and see if any of their reported personalities ever actually took the test.

 

But wait -- that would be real journalism.

Sorry.

Does it pay to know your type? Some say, yes; others say, no. Lot of study and information on personality traits/types. Do they have merit? What do you think?

How The Best Leaders Build Trust

How The Best Leaders Build Trust | Creativity Outlet | Scoop.it

Think about it this way: When trust is low, in a company or in a relationship, it places a hidden “tax” on every transaction:

 

every communication, every interaction, every strategy, every decision is taxed, bringing speed down and sending costs up.

 

My experience is that significant distrust doubles the cost of doing business and triples the time it takes to get things done.
