This Inspiring TED Talk Celebrates Imperfection as the Key to Success

This Inspiring TED Talk Celebrates Imperfection as the Key to Success | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

True innovation starts with ditching the ideal of perfection.

 

Studies have shown that self-doubt can potentially be a major hurdle to women's success. There's evidence we might not ask for a promotion, apply for a job we're absolutely qualified for or execute on a big idea because we're not as confident in our abilities as men.

june holley's insight:

Most girls are taught to avoid risk and failure. We're taught to smile pretty, play it safe, get all A's. Boys, on the other hand, are taught to play rough, swing high, crawl to the top of the monkey bars and then just jump off head first.

Are we still teaching our girls growing up to avoid risk and failure, while their counterparts are taught to play rough, swing high, and crawl to the top of the monkey bars just to jump off head first?  Are we perpetuating habits that stiffen women in their future success?

The Total Incompatibility of Mindfulness and Busyness

Important for Network Weavers!

 

Saying yes to more things than we can actually manage to be present for with integrity and ease of being is, in effect, saying no to all those things and people and places we have already said yes to.

Are You Too Busy To Learn How To Overcome Busyness? » Community

First, I believe that one of the greatest threats to healthy workplaces is BUSYNESS.  Individuals can only work at ‘full steam’ without stopping for so long before they reach the point of overload, becoming stressed and overwhelmed. This approach is not healthy for the individual or the company. As stress levels rise, people become forgetful, less able to focus and experience fatigue and other physical symptoms such as headaches, ulcers and even become physically ill. Obviously, these symptoms lead to reduced efficiency and productivity, which are counterproductive for the company. (Stressed out employees are not usually a lot of fun to work with, unless you enjoy irritable colleagues.)

Network literacies

Network literacies | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

Distributed governance was part of the conversation at RESET18 in Helsinki last month, where I discussed networks, communities of practice, knowledge-sharing, and sense-making, in the context of the Finnish civil service. I concluded that a network society needs networked models for organizing and for learning. Governments and their departments need to transition to the network form. Each network form will be different, so there are few best practices to follow. New practices have to emerge from those testing the new methods.

New practices, and literacies, are needed to maintain our democracies and to help each citizen thrive in this newly connected world. Frameworks like personal knowledge mastery provide the key concepts and vocabulary to become network literate.

Standing for Love | Leadership Learning Community

Standing for Love | Leadership Learning Community | Network Leadership | Scoop.it
When we talk about the inner work of leadership, it is often my inclination to think of it as individual work. And yet the attack on the synagogue reminded me that we do have a tradition of healing and nurturing love as collective work and in community. It’s not surprising that churches and other places of worship where this collective work is nurtured have been targets of hate groups. We can cultivate love as a collective endeavor in our places of worship, neighborhoods, and yes, leadership programs. I have always said we are stronger and smarter together. I also believe we can be more loving together, and in times like this I am finding the need to be in this kind of relationship with others. Ironically, I missed the Wild Love session because I was in a session on how we measure the progress and contributions of leadership programs. While we had good conversations about seeing concrete results, the past few days have reminded me that we will not make progress without hope and love,

Active Listening: The Key to Communicating with Others 

Active Listening: The Key to Communicating with Others  | Network Leadership | Scoop.it

Active listening is a skill that can be acquired and developed through practice. However, it can be difficult to master, because you have to be patient and take time to develop it properly.

Active listening refers, as its name suggests, to listening actively and with full awareness. Therefore, active listening is not to hear the other person, but to be totally focused on the message that the other individual is trying to communicate.

Active listening: listening and understanding communication from the speaker’s point of view'


Although it may seem that listening actively is an easy task, this type of listening requires an effort of our cognitive and empathic abilities. Knowing how to listen is very important in communication, and although it may not seem like it, on many occasions we spend a lot of time waiting for what we think and what we say instead of actively listening to the other.
