In Silicon Valley, Meditation Is No Fad. It Could Make Your Career

In Silicon Valley, Meditation Is No Fad. It Could Make Your Career | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
Meditation and mindfulness are the new rage in Silicon Valley. And it's not just about inner peace—it's about getting ahead.
Joe Boutte's insight:

We must find our balance every day.  Being still and letting our brains relax for a few moments are more helpful than trying to send another "important" email, sending a text, making a call, having a meeting, or creating a social media post.  Whether we meditate, pray, take a walk, sit on a bench, or whatever relaxes us for a few minutes or longer, it is how we keep our balance and elasticity of thought.  Balance includes maintaining integrity of mind, soul, and body. Our energy and creativity is enhanced when we give it time to develop and strengthen.

WOMEN WHO MEAN BUSINESS

WOMEN WHO MEAN BUSINESS | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it

The longtime defense industry vet doesn’t shy away from a challenge. Dugle signed on in early 2016 as CEO at Engility, a $2 billion company with nearly 10,000 employees worldwide, but at a time when the financials seemed on a slippery slope. Since then, Dugle’s shifted the Chantilly-based company’s positioning from a low-price, technically acceptable (LPTA) provider to offering best-value products to government customers.

During her tenure, Engility landed four contracts valued at more than $200 million each, versus just one contract over $200 million in 2015. Her winnings included a contract with the Federal Aviation Administration to support the modernization of the country’s air-traffic control system — the largest contract in Engility’s history.

Joe Boutte's insight:

Congrats to Lynn Dugle and thanks for her leadership at Engility and the community.

FCC CIO Shares Practical Advice for Empowering Employees

FCC CIO Shares Practical Advice for Empowering Employees | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
If CIOs want to remain relevant, they must listen to the public and to the people on the front line, says CIO David Bray.
Joe Boutte's insight:

Dr. David Bray's practical advice for empowering individuals and teams in CIO shops is a good reminder for everyday leaders in all organizations who want to empower and enable people.  The three things he highlights are practical and actionable:

 

 

  1. Autonomy to bring their ideas to fruition.
  2. Measurable progress updates.
  3. A worthy cause that adds value for the public.

 

These tools, ideas or lessons-learned are useful beyond CIO teams.  Similar to David's third thing, I would suggest a closely related fourth element, "creating a sense of urgency", as John Kotter promoted in his "Leading Change" and "A Sense of Urgency" books.   All leaders "must describe an opportunity (or cause) that will appeal to individuals’ heads and hearts and use this statement to raise a large, urgent army of volunteers".   The creative and coherent sinew of these four items is collaboration, which David and many everyday leaders promoted through open doors, open brainstorming, risk mitigation versus risk avoidance, and the constant search for good ideas.   Most change agents will find this short article very familiar, if not, you may not be a change agent yet.
