How To Avoid Communication Pitfalls In The Workplace – The Clarion Call to Leadership! This post first appeared on OPEN Idea Forum. There is a large body of work concerning the way women’s communication style differs from that of men. For example, there is research suggesting that females downplay their certainty, while males downplay their doubts. A more reliable way of looking at the issue of communication styles is to look at it from the point of view of personality which is independent of gender. If you are not sure whether you are predominantly a Feeling or Thinking type, you can take a quick quiz here. If we are influenced by stereotypes, we might conclude that the majority of males are overwhelmingly Thinkers while statistics indicate that a whopping 43.5 % of males in the U.S. are Feelers. With this in mind, here are recommendations for improving communication with both types, regardless of gender: Tips for Thinkers: Work on being more approachable. Consider that your style may be intimidating to some team members. Listen without judgment. Tips for Feelers:

TONY ROBBINS & STARWARMER EMOTIONAL & PHYSICAL SURVIVAL Financial Emergency – Do THIS to win back your future (new Tony film below) Ever had a situation come crashing down around you while you’re wondering, “Now how am I going to fix this?” Of course you have. The question is: when something goes wrong – whether it’s a work situation, a relationship, or a financial matter how do you get yourself 100% PRESENT to address it? Because when human beings get stressed, we tend to hide. Then we create a story in our minds about why this bad stuff is happening, and why we can’t change it. Most people don’t realize that many or most problems can be solved through a) presence and b) strategy. In today’s film, we’re going to see how one man who thought he was wiped out by a crisis – then arose to turn it all around within one hour. Mark Peysha Robbins-Madanes Training P.S. Words cannot begin to express what I’m going through in this training program. -D, Israel

You Are What You Post? Hunting the Elusive SuperIdentity (Q+A) So, we’ve had the internet for a good while now. Has it changed you? Maybe. At the very least its exposed more of you; or, it’s coerced you into exposing more of yourself. Some of that information is new information — maybe information you didn’t have a channel for revealing before — while some of it is old information with finer detail. How do you feel about the current stability of identity? In adults, identity, in the sense that it refers to ‘physical identity,’ is a fairly stable concept although the ways that we reveal our identity are diverse and expanding. In the real or physical world, we have good scientific exploration of the cues through which we reveal identity, and the reliability associated with these cues. How did you come to this project? My own interest in identity stems from my background as an experimental psychologist working particularly with an interest in forensic issues. I assume that you use social media and place some part of your own identity within it.

No Batteries Required: 8 Conflict Resolution Tips Learning to deal with emotions in conflict situations helps us be more effective in our professional or personal lives. August 17, 2011 There is an African proverb that says: “Don’t look where you fell, but where you slipped.” When we find ourselves on the conflict carousel, we often tend to lose sight of the root cause of the conflict. It may very well have originated with us, but, once the conflict with a colleague or superior is set in motion, we seem to suffer from temporary, corporate amnesia—the emotional nature of the conflict clouds our objectivity. Learning to deal with emotions in negotiations or conflict situations helps us to be more effective, whether in our professional or personal life. 1. Do you feel heard, understood and valued for your point of view? 2. Are you treated as an adversary and kept at a distance, or are you treated as a colleague? 3. Do you have the freedom to make a decision without feeling that someone else is telling you what to do? 4. 5. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6.

Manipulation of The People - Rudiments of Propaganda Despite living in "the free world", there are very few free men and women walking around in our democracies. Very few indeed. This is because some men and women have a human failing that drives them to want to manipulate others for the sake of power. That manipulation has enslaved humanity throughout most of its history, and still presents the most ominous threat to democracy. Following is an outline to that manipulation, and what we can do about it. W E THINK WE LIVE in a democracy, which is the type of society in which ultimate power lies with the people. The rate and density of information flow has been rising exponentially since the end of the Second World War. With control over the West's mass media falling into the hands of a small group of multinationals (only 5 control just about all the US media), the potential for information flow to be spun by the interests of big business (and governments, which have a symbiotic relationship with big business) has never been greater.
