Tired Of Forgetting Names? Try These Tricks

Tired Of Forgetting Names? Try These Tricks | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it



Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

You spot that acquaintance at the market and begin to wave. As you walk toward each other, an emphatic “hey” slips out—followed by a startling black hole of silence.


What on Earth is her name?


“Hey girl!” Your cheeks flush as you try to decide whether to just confess or wade through a conversation without revealing your memory lapse.


Forgetting a name can make for a pretty painful social encounter, but in a professional relationship, it can be lethal.

Corporate Fraud of a Different Stripe

Corporate Fraud of a Different Stripe | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Public relations shops in the chosen companies are working overtime cranking out press releases touting their dedication to diversity, and how they value female employees equally with the men.


Trouble is, the fancy words don't match reality. Too often their real purpose is to get the company on as many "best" lists as possible, and shower the magazines with advertising dollars as payment. A neat arrangement -- the company gets the kudos, the awarding publication gets the bucks. It's sort of like the deal between a prostitute and a john -- both know the rules, both get what they bargain for, and nobody gets hurt. Or do they?

7 Songs Every Leader Must Sing Each Day

You awake to a new, beautiful, and sunny day. The birds are singing and you are feeling amazing. As you bounce out of bed,you realize that you are a manager and leader—inspirational and empowered. A song comes to your lips and you start singing.

“There are miracles in life I must achieve, but first, I know it starts inside of me. Oh, if I can see it, then I can be it. If I just believe it, there's nothing to it. I believe I can fly. I believe I can touch the sky. I think about it every night and day; spread my wings and fly away. I believe I can soar. I see me running through that open door.”

How To Manage Your Web-Life Balance

How To Manage Your Web-Life Balance | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

In theory, technology should increase both work flexibility and productivity, but it is also responsible for procrastination and a major threat to people’s work-life balance.


In fact, much of the recent debate about work-life imbalance is concerned with our relationship with technology, in particular our inability to disconnect or go offline.


For example, in the U.S. almost 50% of working adults report being “hooked” on email, which is estimated to cost the nation's economy at least $900 billion a year in productivity loss. According to consulting firm McKinsey & Company, professionals spend 28% of their work time reading or answering emails. These statistics explain the international success of bestselling books like The Four Hour Work Week.

Why You Should Be Working From Home Today

Why You Should Be Working From Home Today | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

If you decide you’d like to try working from home, you know the usual advice: schedule a meeting with your supervisor, and ask to try it one day a week.


But which day?


For most people, the default answer is “Friday,” which makes sense. Your manager knows that Friday is less productive than, say, Tuesday. People schedule fewer meetings. Therefore, it’s less of a risk.


But there are reasons not to automatically ask for Friday. First, asking for any specific day negates much of the magic of working from home. What if Thursday has fewer meetings this week? What if you really need to crank something out on Tuesday for a Wednesday deadline, and your office has way too many distractions? Rather than negotiating for any specific day, getting permission to work from home when you need to is a much better benefit.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

Prolonging the weekend with a work-from-home day is tempting, but Wednesday is actually the best day to work from home.

To Succeed, Be The One Everyone Can Count On

To Succeed, Be The One Everyone Can Count On | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Everyone needs someone in their lives that they can count on, someone to call when there’s no one else to call. And, these days, with radical change and ongoing disruption a constant part of every business, the most valuable people in any company are the ones you can count on in a crisis or a crunch--the "go-to" guys and girls. The people who are there in a pinch and who you naturally tend to run to, not from, when the feces hits the fan.


This isn't part of anyone's job description, and it's not something you can create on the fly. That's why there's no better investment you could possibly make in your career or your future than being the first stop when someone's looking for help, versus the last resort.


The good news is that this is a trait you can develop over time, like any other part of your reputation. If you're truly committed and your efforts are sincere and authentic, you can make it happen. Here's how.

What It Will Take to Fix HR

What It Will Take to Fix HR | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

In the July/August issue of HBR, Ram Charan argues that the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) role should be eliminated, with HR responsibilities funneled in two separate directions — administration, led by traditional HR-types, reporting to the CFO; and talent strategy, led by high-potential line managers, reporting to the corner office. While my colleague and I vehemently agree that HR’s status quo is an inhibitor to growth, it is with the same fervor that we disagree with Ram’s proposed solution.


Really? Break up a strategic function in response to underperformance in the wake of severe market disruptions? Put the most strategic pieces into the hands of up-and-comers passing through the leadership-development revolving door? What would the capital markets look like today if a similar tack had been taken when the CFO role was ripe for transformation?

Why Women Entrepreneurs Are Happier Than Male Entrepreneurs

Why Women Entrepreneurs Are Happier Than Male Entrepreneurs | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

There's a lot being said out there about the state of women in this country. The gender gap is alive and well when it comes to salary, confidence, happiness, and the number of women in the C-suite and science. Women aren't as happy as they were in the 1970s, research has shown, and their happiness relative to that of men has taken a nosedive.


But it's not all doom and gloom. A recent study shows there's one career path in which women's perceived happiness is greater than men's: entrepreneurship.


One out of every 10 women in the U.S. today is starting or running her own business, according to a that came out in June. More than a third of those women want to expand their business beyond five employees.

5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers

5 Signs It's Time for You to Change Careers | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Many people hate change; contemplating the unknown is scary. So many stick with familiar things even though they no longer fit. This is especially true of careers. Sometimes people get stuck in a career direction or work environment that makes them terribly unhappy, and they stay there because it's tough to change careers once you have gained experience, power, and good compensation.


People often end up in the wrong careers by accident. They start out with a job and become proficient, so they advance and make a good living. They may even start a company in that field. They get so focused on growth, meeting objectives, or making the money to support their lifestyle, they don't realize how toxic their life has become.

Let's just make one thing clear--being called a "workaholic" is not a compliment. Taking time off is essential for being a happy, healthy, whole individual.

Magicians are always under pressure to reinvent their performances to stay ahead of the competition.

You can imagine my delight when more than 60 people came with us.
