Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour

Fixing a Work Relationship Gone Sour | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

The good news is that even some of the most strained relationships can be repaired. In fact, a negative relationship turned positive can be a very strong one. “Going through difficult experiences can be the makings of the strongest, most resilient relationships,” says Susan David, a founder of the Harvard/McLean Institute of Coaching and author of the HBR article, “Emotional Agility.” The bad news is that fixing a relationship takes serious effort.

 

“Most people just lower their expectations because it’s easier than dealing with the real issues at hand,” says Brian Uzzi, professor of leadership and organizational change at Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management and author of the HBR article, “Make Your Enemies Your Allies.” But, he says, the hard work is often worth it, especially in a work environment where productivity and performance are at stake. Here’s how to transform a work relationship that’s turned sour.

Sometimes you get stuck in a rut with someone at work — a boss, a coworker, a direct report. Perhaps there’s bad blood between you or you simply haven’t been getting along. What can you do to turn the relationship around? Is it possible to start anew?

How Lifelong Learning and a Growth Mindset Can Propel Your Career


Many people believe once they’ve earned all the degrees needed for their dream job, their learning days are over. This is a dangerous way to manage a career, because technologies and business models emerge and force change so rapidly.
The pace of change is accelerating, and to succeed in any industry, and to be ready to participate in the next evolution of it, professionals must adopt habits and practices that empower lifelong learning.

One challenge to lifelong learning is that many people assume they are not capable of it or not good at it. We tell ourselves, I’m not a math person. I don’t get code. Writing is not my strong suit. Remarks like this may mask a feeling that learning itself is beyond our grasp.

 

Lifelong learning never happens without a healthy dose of personal grit. A short, but powerful word, grit means persevering in the face of challenges and adversity. Gritty individuals are motivated to overcome those obstacles — whether in their personal or professional lives.

To Recover from Burnout, Regain Your Sense of Control

To Recover from Burnout, Regain Your Sense of Control | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

You feel exhausted, ineffective, unaccomplished, and cynical. Maybe you feel like no matter how hard you work, you can never keep up. Or that you can’t make your boss happy no matter how hard you try. And you’re beginning to question your professional situation: Am I in the right job? The right company? The right career? I used to feel passionate about going into work but now I dread Monday and can’t wait until Friday. Will I ever feel excited about my life and work again?

These are classic signs that you’re feeling burned out. And in that state, you often feel like your circumstances are out of your control — as if everything around you is working against you. You might think: Everyone else is to blame for my burnout. But this victim mindset only blocks you from doing anything about your situation. While you’re complaining about other people, the days of your life are ticking by.

The Productivity Tricks Of Seven Successful Entrepreneurs

The Productivity Tricks Of Seven Successful Entrepreneurs | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Successful entrepreneurs have a lot of things in common; one is knowing how to make the best use of their time. When the clock is ticking and they are under pressure to deliver, many have a favourite productivity hack to ensure things get done on time. Here, seven entrepreneurs share their tried and tested ways of being more productive.

 

Create artificial deadlines

 

Business expert and author of The Startup Coach Carl Reader uses a clever technique of creating artificial deadlines to guarantee a productive finish.

 

“One of my favourite tricks is the ‘train journey to nowhere,” he said. “I book a return train ticket, don't take my mobile phone, and set a completion target for the journey. With a clear deadline and no distractions, I find that I often produce more than I would in the office in a whole day. It's great if you can tie this around meetings that you need to travel to, but if not, the productivity boost is well worth the cost of a train ticket.”

The Best Managers Do These 6 Key Things Differently

The Best Managers Do These 6 Key Things Differently | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Effectively managing others is both a science and an art, just like programming or playing an instrument. Based on personality and past experiences, some people tend to naturally be stronger at leading and inspiring others. That being said, anybody can learn how to be an effective manager if given the right training.

 

What's nice about the world we live in today is that you don't have to reinvent the wheel to be a great leader. Countless studies have been poured into determining what makes for a good manager.

 

Whether you've always seen yourself as a natural leader or are scared in front of others, here are six science-backed tactics that are universally effective.

Friends with unexpected benefits – working with buddies can improve performance

We routinely work together with other people. Often, we try to achieve shared goals in groups, whether as a team of firefighters or in a scientific collaboration. When working together, many people – naturally – would prefer doing so with others who are their friends. But, as much as we like spending time with our friends, is working with them in a group really good for our performance?

Reasoned judgements: 5 steps to help avoid bad decision making | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

In all walks of life, whether it be business, politics, at home or in our social circles, we instinctively look to our leaders and role models to make important decisions.
 
Experience and industry knowledge are undoubtedly useful resources that we can use to guide us through the process. But it can be easy to forget that the ability to step back, analyse a situation and use that information to make a reasoned judgement is a skill that can, and should, be practiced and honed.

The digital transformation of learning: Social, informal, self-service, and enjoyable

The digital transformation of learning: Social, informal, self-service, and enjoyable | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

The vast co-created commons of the internet have long been seen as a way for the connected and motivated to learn on their own. However, as digital has fundamentally changed how we find knowledge and share information with each other, it has also steadily shifted the landscape of learning itself: The typical person today is far more likely to reach for their mobile phone to learn something than find a relevant book or go to the library.
ZDNet Academy Deals.

Call it the digitization of learning or just the realization of the the promise of the internet, it's become abundantly clear that freeform online repositories of knowledge such as YouTube and Wikipedia, as well as dozens of open, high quality digital learning platforms such as Coursera, Open Culture, or the Khan Academy have become leading new instruments for global learning.

A manager's guide to emotional intelligence

A manager's guide to emotional intelligence | Learning At Work | Scoop.it
We’ve all heard of Emotional Intelligence (EQ). We’re probably also very aware of how important it is, or at least how important it’s supposed to be, in our professional lives. Yet, despite all the books and articles that preach of its importance, there are few sources that actually tell us HOW we can improve our EQ competence.

As a result of this, many people view EQ as something innate, where one either possesses it or doesn’t. Fortunately, that isn’t true. The fact is that EQ competence can be learnt, improved, and mastered.

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting

5 Strategies for Team Brainstorming to Use in Your Next Meeting | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

Team brainstorming seems like a good idea--at least, on paper. What usually happens is this: the company is experiencing a tough problem that no single person seems able to solve, so someone decides that more minds means more processing power, and before you know it you're all gathered in the conference room.

 

One or two people churn out bad idea after bad idea, while everyone else stares at the wall or multitasks. There are no major breakthroughs and most of you are irritated at the waste of time.

 

Sound familiar? Why is this such a problem?

What an Ancient Japanese Art Form Can Teach Us About Our Mistakes

What an Ancient Japanese Art Form Can Teach Us About Our Mistakes | Learning At Work | Scoop.it

You – and your team – are better because of your mistakes. Mistakes – and the messages we take away from those experiences – is valuable feedback that propels us forward as we grow and learn as people. The problem is all too often, we find ourselves hiding our flaws from others. But veiling or denying our missteps doesn’t serve us well. A false mask of perfection is nearly impossible to maintain, and almost always something others can see through.

That mask of perfection creates distrust… and distrust inspires doubts and distance. Distance prevents us from creating the connections we need to be effective leaders and collaborators.

That may hurt, and those mistakes, are precisely what make you and your team stronger, wiser, and better.
