Why Inspiring Trust And Trusting Others Are Essential Leadership Capacities (Within Bounds)

Why Inspiring Trust And Trusting Others Are Essential Leadership Capacities (Within Bounds) | Ethics, leadership, relational and responsive accountability | Scoop.it
It's a given that a great leader must inspire trust and be trustworthy. Equally important, and less obvious perhaps, a leader must also have the capacity to trust others. But there can be too much of a good thing. In both directions, trust has to be tempered by realism and diligence.

Maria Teresa Frezet terapeuta olistica's curator insight, July 8, 2013 2:15 AM

Condivido questa informazione piú che altro per sottolineare il fatto che anche in ambienti piú scientifici si stia iniziando a capire che empatia e compassione fanno davvero la differenza!

 

Quando riusciamo a sentire anche solo per un attimo la COMPASSIONE vuol dire che il nostro cuore inizia a espandersi, e da quel momento in poi non saremo MAI PIÚ le stesse persone..... Si aprirá un mondo che mai ci saremmo immaginati, nel quale tutto inizia a scorrere in maniera fluida....

 

Anche solo un istante di vera compassione dá significato a tutta una vita!

Do markets erode moral values? People ignore their own moral standards when acting as market participants - ScienceDaily (2013)

Do markets erode moral values? People ignore their own moral standards when acting as market participants - ScienceDaily (2013) | Ethics, leadership, relational and responsive accountability | Scoop.it

Many people express objections against child labor, exploitation of the workforce or meat production involving cruelty against animals. At the same time, however, people ignore their own moral standards when acting as market participants, searching for the cheapest electronics, fashion or food. Thus, markets reduce moral concerns... 

 

Prof. Dr. Armin Falk... and Prof. Dr. Nora Szech... have shown in an experiment that markets erode moral concerns. In comparison to non-market decisions, moral standards are significantly lower if people participate in markets.

 

"Our results show that market participants violate their own moral standards"... In a number of different experiments, several hundred subjects were confronted with the moral decision between receiving a monetary amount and killing a mouse versus saving the life of a mouse and foregoing the monetary amount.

 

"It is important to understand what role markets and other institutions play in moral decision making. This is a question economists have to deal with"... "To study immoral outcomes, we studied whether people are willing to harm a third party in exchange to receiving money. Harming others in an intentional and unjustified way is typically considered unethical"...

 

"In markets, people face several mechanisms that may lower their feelings of guilt and responsibility"... In market situations, people focus on competition and profits rather than on moral concerns. Guilt can be shared with other traders. In addition, people see that others violate moral norms as well. 

 

In addition, in markets with many buyers and sellers, subjects may justify their behavior by stressing that their impact on outcomes is negligible. "This logic is a general characteristic of markets"... Excuses or justifications appeal to the saying, "If I don't buy or sell now, someone else will"...

Do Mindful People Have a Stronger Sense of Self?

Researchers at the University of Utah recruited over 1,000 undergraduate students, ranging in age from 18 to 53, to complete questionnaires about three traits:
Mindfulness: Their tendency to be aware of their thoughts and feelings and to respond to them in deliberate, non-reactive, non-judgmental ways.
Self-concept clarity: How stable, clear, and unconflicted their views of themselves are.
Well-being: How much they feel a sense of self-acceptance, autonomy, and control over their environment; the quality of their relationships; and their experience of personal growth and purpose in life.
The results showed that more mindful students reported higher well-being—and that a stronger sense of self partly accounted for that link.
Delving deeper into the data, the researchers found that some aspects of mindfulness were more crucial than others. Students who were more non-judgmental about their thoughts and feelings tended to report a particularly clear sense of self; on the other hand, those who were better at observing the present actually had slightly lower self-concept clarity.

Empathy, the empty trade-off for justice
For some, there seems to be nothing wrong with what Ena and Julian are doing. It is not surprising. South Africans are no strangers to empathy. The half-phony Damascus moment in 1994 was partly built on the tenets of empty empathy. The 1996 Truth and Reconciliation Commission supposedly gave many South Africans a chance to confront the violent horrors of the past and forgive each other, unconditionally without recourse.

The nature of it all compelled most South Africans to show a bit of empathy, in various ways.

 

Empathy for the mother who lost her son to the torture and veiled killings by the apartheid police. Empathy for the white family who lost their father in a civilian bomb attack. The uneven wounds of the past were ideal threads that wove the new South Africa as we now know it. It was all a performative exercise really. The emotional scars of many were used to advance the half-baked project of the rainbow nation. The rainbow, as we now know, couldn’t hold for long. The pieces now lie shattered in front of us.

Empathy can diffuse conflict and deepen relationships. See examples of empathic and non-empathic responses.

 

Empathy is perhaps the single most important relational skill. Empathy is the ability to put yourself in somebody else’s shoes and understand how they might be feeling in a given situation. The ability to listen empathetically – relating to and understanding the perspective, position and feelings of others – is a tremendously important capability in both personal and professional relationships.

 

We don’t need to have had the exact same experience or scenario in life to empathize with somebody else. As human beings, we all experience similar feelings of joy, sadness, loss, love, fear, loneliness, pride, shame, guilt, relief, and elation. If we listen in a way that allows us to relate to that common feeling or human experience, we can improve our connections and shared understandings with others.

USFCA professor Ruth A. Starkman writes on holistic admissions and the questions raised about who gets selected, how and why.


"Why was he not top-ranked by the 'world’s premier public university,' as Berkeley calls itself? Perhaps others had perfect grades and scores? They did indeed. Were they ranked higher? Not necessarily. What kind of student was ranked higher? Every case is different. ...It’s an extreme version of the American non-conversation about race."

SInce I am applying for graduate school at the moment, this article was very helpful for me! I believe it is crucial for students to learn how admissions counselors review applications and ethics can play a huge role in their process.
