Digital Skills | All Aboard | Personal skills | Scoop.it
Technology is now part of everyday life for all of us, whether as a student, teacher, administrator, technical specialist, or even just as an ordinary citizen. The pace in which new technologies emerge from initial concept to widespread adoption is also much faster than ever before, new words being added to the dictionary each year and new websites and apps to get our heads around for anything from paying tax to ordering pizza; from watching the latest movies to speaking with distant relatives; or for learning a new skill and collaborating with others.

Why My Company Serves Free Breakfast to All Employees

Why My Company Serves Free Breakfast to All Employees | Personal skills | Scoop.it

Each morning from 8:30 to 9:05 AM at our company’s headquarters, in San Francisco, we serve free breakfast to every employee. And I’m not talking about stale muffins and dry bagels. Today I ate a sloppy joe, cheesy scrambled eggs, home fries, crispy bacon, and sausage links. Healthy, I know. Tomorrow, I’m definitely going to grab a yogurt and some fruit. And don’t forget all the vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options. After all, this is California.

I know what you’re thinking. Free food is the cost of admission to the Silicon Valley tech scene. Our startup, Pivotal, calls the South of Market (SOMA) neighborhood home, alongside companies like Airbnb, Dropbox, Adobe, Slack, Salesforce, and Uber. So, of course, Pivotal serves free, catered meals. It’s just expected.

Too Late To Start? Why Success Doesn't Have An Expiration Date

Too Late To Start? Why Success Doesn't Have An Expiration Date | Personal skills | Scoop.it

Does success really have an expiration date? Is there an actual deadline you have to meet before you cant be successful? And if you answered yes to all of these questions, whats the best age to succeed? Let me break it down for you; time has, with no exceptions what so ever, no expiration date. It’s never too early to start a venture. It’s never too late to become great. Whatever rationalized concept or idea you have, imagining that there is a strict correlation between age and success, forget about it! Because at the end of the day success is what we all strive for and the only people who “cant” achieve it, are the ones who put up imaginary barriers between them and their goal.

En las empresas no son muchos los gestores de personal que parecen conscientes de ello, pero un grupo de expertos académicos en management de la Harvard Business School lo tiene claro y ha tratado de demostrarlo en números: los empleados que realizan esta suerte de examen de conciencia rinden casi un 23% más que el resto

How Different Cultures Understand Time

How Different Cultures Understand Time | Personal skills | Scoop.it

Time is seen in a particularly different light by Eastern and Western cultures, and even within these groupings assumes quite dissimilar aspects from country to country. In the Western Hemisphere, the United States and Mexico employ time in such diametrically opposing manners that it causes intense friction between the two peoples. In Western Europe, the Swiss attitude to time bears little relation to that of neighboring Italy. Thais do not evaluate the passing of time in the same way that the Japanese do. In Britain the future stretches out in front of you. In Madagascar it flows into the back of your head from behind.

Fostering Women Leaders: A fitness test for your top team | Personal skills | Scoop.it

The challenges are well known: women in business continue to face a formidable gender gap for senior-leadership positions.1 Moreover, there are fewer and fewer women at each step along the path to the C-suite, although they represent a majority of entry-level employees at Fortune 500 companies and outnumber men in college-graduation rates.2 Increasingly, the barriers too are well known: a mix of cultural factors, ingrained mind-sets, and stubborn forms of behavior, including a tendency to tap a much narrower band of women leaders than is possible given the available talent pool.

How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback

How To Master The Art Of Giving Negative Feedback | Personal skills | Scoop.it

When you’re a leader, giving feedback, both positive and negative, comes with the territory. But not everyone is comfortable giving it. Sarah Green, a senior associate editor with the Harvard Business Review, recently scoured HBR’s blog for the site’s best advice for how to give negative feedback. Here are her five tips:

 

1. Be direct by avoiding the feedback “sandwich.”

 

Instead of couching criticism with positive feedback (which can dilute the message and sounds insincere), approaching the issue directly and with transparency allows everyone to understand the purpose of the discussion and keep the conversation on track. For example, if a colleague’s presentation style needs improvement, you can approach the conversation by asking if you can provide some feedback. They’ll (most likely) say yes, and will be more open to accepting it.

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills

9 Body Language Tricks to Improve Your Negotiation Skills | Personal skills | Scoop.it

Strong negotiation skills are hugely advantageous throughout one’s life, from the boardroom to the bar. These skills largely rest on your ability to back up your words with physical actions that exude openness, honesty, and confidence. This fosters trust and increases the other party’s desire to react cooperatively and reach agreement.

According to psychologists and a recent study from language experts Gengo, body language and non-verbal communications has a greater impact in a discussion than the actual words that you say.

El Chismorreo puede ser una buena herramienta de liderazgo - Observatorio Europeo del Coaching

El Chismorreo puede ser una buena herramienta de liderazgo - Observatorio Europeo del Coaching | Personal skills | Scoop.it
Resulta inevitable que en una empresa haya cotilleos, porque está en la propia esencia del ser humano. Sin embargo, si la dirección de la empresa se lo propone, puede intentar reconducirlos para que terminen siendo una buena herramienta de liderazgo y de toma de temperatura a los trabajadores, según Peter Economy, colaborador del Portal Inc.

De entrada, el chismorreo tiene mala reputación, y no es inmerecida. Entendemos como chismorreo de dudoso fundamento, que implica calificaciones personales sobre otros compañeros del departamento y que precisamente por esto es compartida en entornos reducidos, normalmente con la misma gente.

Sin embargo, un estudio reciente sugiere que los cotilleos en el lugar de trabajo pueden convertirse en realidad en un beneficio. Según el investigador de la Universidad de Stanford, Matthew Feinberg, "los grupos que permiten a sus miembros cotillear, disuaden las actitudes individualistas mejor que aquellos que lo impiden”. Veámos cómo.
