Forming Stronger Bonds with People at Work

Forming Stronger Bonds with People at Work | wealth business & social media | Scoop.it

Connecting with others is at the heart of human nature. Recent research emphasizes that the power of connections can help us be creative, resilient, even live longer. But we can easily overlook the importance of these bonds. As popular writer and researcher Adam Grant has noted, the pressure of tight deadlines and the pace of technology mean that fewer Americans are finding friendship in the workplace. In fact, many of us are further disconnecting from the people we work with: we’re more stressed out than ever, and half of us regularly experience incivility in our jobs.

 

How can we create possibilities for connection in what is sometimes a hostile atmosphere? We believe there needs to be more compassion.

Excellent article. All the points are important, but the practice of emphatic concern is critical in today's stressful climate.

Studies say we are developing less friendships at work.....put down your phones and connect.....your company will only flourish long term if it has a good culture.......

The Personality Traits of Good Negotiators

The Personality Traits of Good Negotiators | wealth business & social media | Scoop.it

Although there are hundreds of books about how to negotiate more effectively, the advice they offer is often difficult to apply, for three reasons. First, there are just too many contextual specificities underpinning each negotiation, such that one size does not fit all. Second, the effectiveness of each strategy is partly dependent on the personal background of the negotiators — who they are, what they want, and how they connect. Third, many of the factors determining the outcome of negotiations are more emotional than rational, which requires a deep psychological understanding of the people involved.

 

Luckily, personality research provides valuable lessons in predicting an individual’s ability to negotiate effectively. Some traits are clearly indicative of good negotiation potential, while others are more of a handicap. That isn’t to say people can’t get better at it, but their success will depend on their ability to understand their own and the other party’s personality.
