Does your job match your personality? | Big Think - 2 views

  •  
    "Your personality will partially determine how good you are at your job, especially if you have a complex job that requires more than rote behavior. So are you and your job a good fit? If you're a creative person who is open to trying new things-openness being one of the Big Five personality traits-you're more likely to succeed at jobs that require novel solutions over efficient ones. On the other hand, if you're conscientious-another Big Five personality trait-you're likely to be better off in a management or administrative position."

    J.K. Rowling reminds us that our connection with one another can be enhanced by a deep curiosity that develops into imagination and ultimately empathy. As we allow our imaginations to wander through the stories of others, we are able to better see them as people who matter like we matter.

    "Who do you play for?"

    With this simple question, Coach Herb Brooks inspired a shift in mindset that ultimately resulted in one of the greatest moments in sports: the U.S. hockey team's victory in the 1980 Olympics, now known as the "Miracle on Ice."

Why It's Smart to Share Your Ignorance - 2 views

  •  
    Humankind is forgetting how to disagree. I don't mean merely that our manner of disagreeing is becoming increasingly problematic (although it is). I mean that we have an even bigger problem: We don't know how to disagree anymore because we don't know what we are thinking.

Dogs Might Be More Rational Than Humans - 0 views

  •  
    "Dogs are "really good at learning from us, but they might, in funny ways, be better at learning from us than we are from ourselves," Santos, a cognitive psychologist at Yale University, told Live Science. They are "less irrational in following our behavior than humans are." Humans, on the other hand, can fall prey to a phenomenon called "over-imitation," Santos said. "Sometimes we imitate too much; we are so prone to trust others that we kind of copy the things we see them doing, even when those things other people are doing might not be so smart," Santos said."

    The reality is that whether we were taught by an entertaining teacher or a boring one, we usually remember very little that they said. But we still know so much-driving a car, computer programming, baking a cake, speaking a foreign language, writing an email, etc.

    How have we learned so much when we remember so little?

    Here are the three scenarios. While this post suggests an Arbinger tool that could be applied in each situation, others are equally applicable and were part of the conversations in the Summit breakouts. If you're familiar with the Arbinger tools, we invite you to consider what others might be used in each case.

Arbinger Training Summit 2018 Highlights - 1 views

  •  
    Mitch Warner, managing partner and Arbinger author, kicked off the event with a story about his father, who pursued acting in New York City. At that time, a friend asked his father, "Do you love yourself in the theatre? Or do you love the theatre in yourself?" Mitch reflected that this question could apply to more than just theatre and acting. It could apply to work and leadership. We could ask ourselves, "As leaders, do we enjoy helping others succeed, or do I just like the idea of myself as a leader?" With those introspective questions, Mitch reminded the audience that turning the world outward begins with our personal commitment to being outward.

    "A shift from the hard to soft elements of leadership is not exclusive to the AI age. Meta-analytic studies reviewing 50 years of research suggest that personality traits such as curiosity, extraversion, and emotional stability are twice as important as IQ - the benchmark metric for reasoning capability - when it comes to predicting leadership effectiveness."
