“If Humble People Make the Best Leaders, Why Do We Fall for Charismatic Narcissists?”

“People are drawn to those who look and act the romanticized role of the leader. But charismatic leadership can have a dark side.”

“How to Be Resilient in the Face of Harsh Criticism”

“What I’ve learned from the TOSA students is that we need to build our resilience in the face of criticism. Here are four steps you can try the next time harsh feedback catches you off-guard. I’ve organized them into an easy-to-remember acronym — CURE — to help you put these lessons in practice even when you’re under stress.”

“The Art of Blooming Late”

“Citing the work of developmental psychologist Erik Erikson, Karlgaard writes, the “ages 40 to 64 constitute a unique period where one’s creativity and experience combine with a universal human longing to make our lives matter.”

… “That said, once you’ve decided to embark on the journey, it may take years, if not longer, to reach your destination. But as research has shown, small daily changes can have a compound effect and slowly but surely lead you closer to the person you think you ought to be.”

“If you ever get stuck, think of Joanne, a talented and creative woman who bounced from job to job throughout her twenties, working as a researcher, secretary, and English-as-a-second-language teacher. Optionless and clinically depressed, she felt like a total failure. But she took that feeling of despair and used it to her advantage. Since she hadn’t succeeded in following a standard path, she felt liberated to do what she’d always wanted to do: write fantasy novels for children. As she would later recount, “I stopped pretending to myself that I was anything other than what I was.””

“You’ve probably heard of her. Her pen name is J.K. Rowling.”

Article by Kevin Evers for Harvard Business Review, May-June 2019 Issue

I know the feeling very well, yet I also know the success will come … in time. Until then, well, the answer is finding the best work to use my natural talents, characteristics, experience, and drive so I will enjoy the employment until I am fully supported by my for-profit social business venture transforming respect from a discretionary value to the global principle … by writing books and creating products to raise the standard of living and quality of life of all people.

Who knows, maybe you are the employer who needs what I can provide?

Regardless, I cannot express how empowering it is to discover who you really are in order to step up and start cutting your own unique path.

Best wishes!

Meetings … How Not to Just Make Busyness But Generate Follow Up Results

To me, one of the most frustrating and time-wasting elements of working in the corporate world was time spent in meetings that were more get togethers than information sessions that resulted in action plans and follow up results, so when I read this article I knew I had to share the tips for the many others who feel/think the same way.
