ENTHUSIASM MOVES MOUNTAINS

ENTHUSIASM MOVES MOUNTAINS | Peak Performance Coaching | Scoop.it

“What I do best is share my enthusiasm" - This quote from Bill Gates, the co founder of Microsoft is worth making a life philosophy.

Enthusiastic people are able to impress - they can convince and are often extremely successful. Showing a great motivation and a strong enthusiasm is one of the most positive qualities one can have. Enthusiasm leads to new enthusiasm - it can move mountains. Thus a real enthusiasm virus may arise, a wave of energy, fun and inspiration. 

ENTHUSIASM IS ENERGY, IS VITALITY!

WE SHOULD LEARN TO DEVELOP ENTHUSIASM - HEALTHY ENTHUSIASM!

FOR ONLY HEALTHY AND HONEST ENTHUSIASM CAN CONVINCE!

Beware of false enthusiasm - false enthusiasm is feigned passion!

The Best-Performing CEOs in the World - Harvard Business Review

The Best-Performing CEOs in the World - Harvard Business Review | Peak Performance Coaching | Scoop.it
Five years ago we launched a global project to address that challenge. But we wanted to do more than just devise the right metrics. Our goal was to implement a scorecard that would not only get people talking about long-term performance but also alter the way that boards, executives, consultants, and management scholars thought about and assessed CEOs.

Coaching vs. Managing: Why coaches are better leaders than managers

Coaching vs. Managing: Why coaches are better leaders than managers | Peak Performance Coaching | Scoop.it

 

The term “manage” is synonymous with words like “govern,” “supervise,” and “administer.” The term “coach” is synonymous with “teach,” “educate,” and “prepare.” Compare the two terms as well as their synonyms. Is it as obvious to you as it is to me? There is a distant, authoritarian connotation radiating from the term “manage,” especially when paired with the gentle, nurturing term “coach.” Which type of leader would you like to work for? And, for those in leadership positions, which word would you like associated with your leadership style?

 

Coaches are leaders first. Managers are bosses first.


Ask any great leaders what their job is, and most of the time, they will tell you that they are responsible for motivating, inspiring, teaching, listening to and guiding their employees. They do this because they know that an organization is much more successful when they have thirty brains working on solutions rather than just one or two leaders’ brains working and thirty brains waiting for orders from the top.

Bosses, on the other hand, don’t see thirty brains. They see thirty pairs of hands that are made for completing orders and finishing tasks. By doing that, bosses put a limit on organization potential with each underestimated member of their human capital.

 

Coaches give advice. Managers give orders.


and


Coaches promote teamwork. Managers promote hierarchy.

5 Ways to Identify Prospective Leaders - Forbes

5 Ways to Identify Prospective Leaders - Forbes | Peak Performance Coaching | Scoop.it

Here five effective ways to identify prospective leaders within your own organization – beyond the metrics, a critical set of behaviors and disciplines that one must possess to advance and succeed as a leader.

1.) Chemistry
Success as a leader requires a natural ability to engage with others. This means having a genuine desire to guide and inspire those around them.

2.) Conviction
Leadership requires the ability to display conviction about protecting the company’s central ethos and the values its brand represents.

3.) Character
To be an effective leader, you must live what you stand for. This means that your personal brand is always active and aligned with the values of your organization.

4.) Commitment
The most effective leaders are those who can be trusted as shown through their commitment to the people they serve.

Beyond commitment for others and the organization, a prospective leader must show the desire to invest in themselves; they are always finding ways to maximize their own potential professionally and personally.

5.) Courage
You know when an employee is ready to advance into a leadership role when they have proven to be courageous enough to push the envelope without creating disruption. This requires self-awareness, impeccable timing, competency and know-how, desire and mental toughness.

Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator

Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator | Peak Performance Coaching | Scoop.it
One factor that is increasingly being cited as an important economic indicator is happiness. After all, what good is increased production and consumption if the result isn’t increased human satisfaction? Until fairly recently, the subject of happiness was mostly avoided by economists for lack of good ways to measure it; however, in recent years, “happiness economists” have found ways to combine subjective surveys with objective data (on lifespan, income, and education) to yield data with consistent patterns, making a national happiness index a practical reality.
