Social media changes so fast that we often miss the small differences on each platform we use.

Creative ideas can help you drive your business to success. Brian Tracy discusses how to run a brainstorming session and encourage creative thinking.

 

The aim of the brainstorming session should be to generate the most ideas possible within a specific period of time.

 

===> An effective brainstorming session will last anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, and 30 minutes is usually ideal. <===

❂ Reflection for Resilience ✤

❂ Reflection for Resilience ✤ | Food For Thought: Feeding our wellbeing one post at a time | Scoop.it

 

Resiliency is about handling stress, uncertainty and setbacks well — in other words, maintaining equilibrium under pressure.

 

And in our modern lives, whether we are at school, at work, or at home, there is no shortage of pressure.

 

Maintaining our equilibrium is something, it seems, we all need these days.

 

There is something you can do — everyday if you would like — to help build your resilience, your capacity to weather stressful events.

 

It's journalling.

 

Keeping a journal can foster resiliency.

 

CCL recommends using "learning journals" or "reflection journals" as tools for gaining insight into your leadership experiences.

 

The process of writing and reflection builds self-awareness, encourages learning and opens the door to adaptability.

 

The form and content of your journal is a matter of individual choice. However, when you do sit down to make a journal entry about an experience that has challenged your equilibrium, we recommend it have three parts:

 

 

✤ The event or experience.

Describe what occurred as objectively as possible.

Don't use judgmental language.

Stick to the facts.

What happened?

Who was involved?

When did it happen?

Where did it happen?

 

 

✤ Your reaction.

Describe your reaction to the event as factually and objectively as possible.

What did you want to do in response to the event?

What did you actually do?

What were your thoughts?

What were your feelings?

 

 

✤ The lessons.

Think about the experience and your reaction to it.

What did you learn from the event and from your reaction to it?

Did the event suggest a development need you should address?

Do you see a pattern in your reactions?

Did you react differently than in the past during similar experiences and does that suggest you are making progress or backsliding on a valuable leadership competency?

 

 

So remember, capture the event or experience in objective language, describe your reaction, then note the lessons you might get from it.

 

CCL uses journaling as part of almost all our leadership development program experiences and we emphasize with our participants that learning doesn't come from the "doing" but in the "reflecting on the doing."

Roger Sommerville's curator insight, February 18, 2014 2:44 AM

I find it hard to spend the time on making a journal work. I suspect it is because I have not thought about resilience and reaction to situations. The short lists here provide a useful guide - and by focusing on my reaction I can give my self a chance to use demanding events/situations more productively.

In Europa werden 47% der Inhalte allein über Facebook geteilt, hinzu kommen noch mal 45% über Twitter. Den Rest teilen sich Google+, LinkedIn und -syurpriz (russ.: Überraschung)- VKontakt, das russische Social Network. Pinterest - obwohl es in USA bereits eine sehr große Rolle spielt - ist im Rest der Welt noch nicht so verbreitet.

What as online business owners should we be looking ahead for in 2014? What trends should we expect?

As 2014 gets underway you’ll see a number of predictions including areas the experts believe you should focus on. Often there are so many predictions that you walk away not knowing what to actually focus on.

To cut down on this, I interviewed 26 small business owners on their 2014 online business predictions. These business owners are all in the trenches daily; many are actively running their own business, a few are strictly marketers, and several are small business experts.

You won’t hear a mentally strong person complaining over lost luggage or traffic jams. Instead, they focus on what they can control in their lives. They recognize that sometimes, the only thing they can control is their attitude.

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, January 5, 2014 2:55 PM

Wonderful collection by Knowledge Broker Kenneth Mikkelsen on an very interesting concept Zappos and other forward thinking companies are implementing. 

 

From one of the articles:

 

At its core, a holacracy aims to organize a company around the work that needs to be done instead of around the people who do it. As a result, employees do not have job titles.


They are typically assigned to several roles that have explicit expectations.


Rather than working on a single team, employees are usually part of multiple circles that each perform certain functions.


In addition, there are no managers in the classically defined sense. Instead, there are people known as “lead links” who have the ability to assign employees to roles or remove them from them, but who are not in a position to actually tell people what to do.


Decisions about what each role entails and how various teams should function are instead made by a governing process of people from each circle. Bunch does note, however, that at Zappos the broadest circles can to some extent tell sub-groups what they’re accountable for doing.
