Empty description
Natalie Shelpuk's insight:
While nonprofits have some tremendous organizational assets, weaknesses in other areas hold them back. It is critically important for nonprofit leaders to become more purposeful about establishing and communicating clear priorities, making roles and responsibilities explicit, creating clear connections across organizational silos, and developing the talented people they attract, or they will fall short of their full potential for impact.

Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching - Forbes

Three Keys to Mindful Leadership Coaching - Forbes | Insight @ Work | Scoop.it
By Douglas Riddle There are countless executive coaches I would never hire for myself, no matter how wise, insightful, dynamic or experienced. Admittedly, I’m a hard guy to please, so what I require might not be a good guide for others.
Natalie Shelpuk's insight:

One of the best explanations of "mindful coaching" comes from Karl Albrecht: 

"You learn to 'hear' yourself think; detect various self-defeating reactions, attitudes, and emotions; disconnect irrational 'hot-button' reflexes; remain 'at cause,' when dealing with others; let go of socially programmed 'slogan' thinking; become less critical and more open to new ideas and possibilities; use your language more skillfully to think, express yourself, and influence the thinking of others; organize your thoughts more clearly; and influence others to see things more clearly as well."  Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.......and breathe............

How Sharing Secrets Helped Us Build a More Empathetic Company | Insight @ Work | Scoop.it

5 Ways to Learn Faster

5 Ways to Learn Faster | Insight @ Work | Scoop.it

"If you want to learn something, you have to deeply immerse yourself in it over a long period of time. It can’t be a weekend event or seminar. It can’t be a one-time course. It has to be something you get into."

Natalie Shelpuk's insight:
I've always been fascinated by promises that "one book" or "one course" will magically make you a "master" of whatever you are trying to learn. That's one (of many) reasons why every message or training that I design and deliver ends with an action plan focused on just ONE takeaway. At the very least, I hope it inspires participants to make a commitment to pick up those notes and review and repeat what we talked about. The truth is that there IS only one way to become good at something: Repeat it. Again and again. And then repeat it some more. I've read that It takes anywhere from 6 to 10 years to become great at something -- somewhere around 10,000 hours to become a master. My wish for all of us is take it one day at a time -- and try again at that one thing each day.

How Female Leaders Should Handle Double-Standards

How Female Leaders Should Handle Double-Standards | Insight @ Work | Scoop.it
Understand how you're perceived, but focus on results.
Natalie Shelpuk's insight:

We also have to ask for changes to the difficult contradictions that still flourish in the workplace:

1) Know what the job is really worth and ask for that compensation (while women are earning nearly 60% of all college degrees (i.e., better educated than ever), they are paid 23% less than men on average -- from AAUW research).

2) Be competent and likeable (don't accept gender stereotypes that say  you can't be both--from Catalyst research)

3) Leverage networks not just for the relationships, but as sources for the next professional role.

Natalie Shelpuk's insight:

The constant dinging, ringing, and singing in every environment around us keeps us distracted. As a result, what we think about happens faster, smaller, and less organized. AND, according to Scientific American, a set of studies conducted at the University of Essex shows that the mere presence of mobile technology in any room significantly and detrimentally impacts relationship quality, trust, and empathy during meaningful conversations. What more compelling reason do we need to turn off technology and tune in to the person next to us?

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership

Management Is (Still) Not Leadership | Insight @ Work | Scoop.it
After years of debate, people still confuse these ideas - at their peril.
Natalie Shelpuk's insight:

Management makes systems of people and technology work well day after day, week after week, year after year. Management is about coping with complexity. Without it, we decend into chaos.


Leadership creates the systems that managers manage and changes them in fundamental ways to take advantage of opportunities and to avoid hazards.

Leadership is about coping with change. More change always demands more leadership.

How to make the most of a mentor

Besides the altruistic boost of helping someone else, you are likely to become more energized about your own job and learn new things about your industry and organization.
Natalie Shelpuk's insight:

In surveys, 96 percent of executives and 98 percent of millennial employees say mentoring is an important development tool. Moreover, 35 percent of employees who don't receive regular mentoring look for another job within the year, and 62 percent who have received mentoring say they are very likely to stay with their current employer. Mentoring isn't a one-way learning process.  It's a relationship where both sides learn more about themselves. A successful partnership is built on personalities that fit, clear expectations, structured conversations, and actionable steps toward defined goals.
