Simon Sinek on Leadership: Most leaders don't even know the game they are in

Simon Sinek: Trust and cooperation are not standard in our organizations and yet we know they should be.

 

There are two attributes that every single leader has the opportunity to possess that will help them create the types of organizations we would be proud to call our own.

 

Those two attributes are empathy and perspective.

Cee Harmon's insight:

According to Simon Sinek, Leaders are the ones who run headfirst into the unknown. They put their own interests aside to protect us or pull us into a brighter future.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.

Dr. Nicholas Hobson: How Misreading Bodily Signals Causes Anxiety

Dr. Nicholas Hobson: How Misreading Bodily Signals Causes Anxiety | Elevate Your Potential Magazine - Elevate Christian Network | Scoop.it

Dr. Nicholas Hobson: What it means when you can feel your anxiety in the body. New research explains the good and bad of these body-based cues during states of stress.

 

This ability to perceive the signals of your body is known as  interoceptive accuracy (IAc). There are, as the example demonstrated, different psychosomatic cues that you pick up within yourself during states of anxiety. But above all, a beating heart is the hardest one to ignore.

 

It’s for this reason that heartbeat perception, as brain scientists call it, is a direct proxy for measuring people’s IAc and reported anxiety and stress levels.

Cee Harmon's insight:

Here's a scenario: You’ve just pulled into work and are ready to pitch your presentation to the senior management team. As everyone gathers in the room, you’re suddenly flooded with a hit of adrenaline.

 

The bad kind. In a flash you become acutely aware of what your body is doing: beads of sweat forming on your brow, a dry mouth that no amount of water can fix, and a steadily increasing heart rate thumping inside your chest.

 

Having the ability to accurately detect your own heartbeat is critical for reappraising your anxiety on a moment to moment basis.

According to Marc Chernoff, Eventually, most of us end up settling in some part of our life.  We let go of certain ideals and dreams, we compromise, and we make trade-offs.  We gradually learn that we can’t have everything we want, because not every outcome in life can be perfectly controlled. 

 

But if we pay close attention, we also learn that we can make the best of every outcome, and still get a lot of what we want in life, if we manage our time, energy and attitude appropriately.
