Top Ranked Leaders Know This Secret: Ask For Feedback

Top Ranked Leaders Know This Secret: Ask For Feedback | Sustainable Leadership to follow | Scoop.it

Frontiers | Personal vision: enhancing work engagement and the retention of women in the engineering profession | Psychology

This study examines how personal vision enhances work engagement and the retention of women in the engineering profession. Using a mixed method approach to understand the factors related to the retention of women in the engineering profession, we first interviewed women who persisted and women who opted out of the profession (Buse & Bilimoria, 2014). In these rich stories we found that women who persisted had a personal vision that included their profession, and that this personal vision enabled them to overcome the bias, barriers and discrimination in the engineering workplace. To validate this finding on a larger population, we developed a scale to measure one’s personal vision conceptualized as the ideal self (Boyatzis & Akrivou, 2006). The measure was tested in a pilot study and then used in a study of 495 women with engineering degrees. The findings validate that the ideal self is comprised of self efficacy, hope, optimism and core identity. For these women the ideal self directly impacts work engagement and work engagement directly impacts career commitment to engineering. The findings add to extant theory related to the role of personal vision and intentional change theory. From a practical perspective these findings will aid efforts to retain women in engineering and other STEM professions.

A flawed argument from Hillary Clinton’s book, What Happened

A flawed argument from Hillary Clinton’s book, What Happened | Sustainable Leadership to follow | Scoop.it
In the last post, I referenced Hillary Clinton’s declaration that her background and upbringing were not very interesting, particularly when compared with those of the last two Democratic presidents, Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. Based on all my research and experience, I must say that this is a rather specious argument, a feeble attempt to explain “what happened” when she …

For me as a blogger, the American presidential election and its aftermath have become a gift that just keeps on giving. When I watch my hour of CNN International each day (usually Anderson Cooper or Fareed Zakaria), there is always something surprising and noteworthy: a nomination, executive order, protest, or other “situation” unfolding in the United States.
