The Focused Leader

A primary task of leadership is to direct attention. To do so, leaders must learn to focus their own attention. When we speak about being focused, we commonly mean thinking about one thing while filtering out distractions. But a wealth of recent research in neuroscience shows that we focus in many ways, for different purposes, drawing on different neural pathways—some of which work in concert,...

If You Want to Get Better at Something, Ask Yourself These Two Questions

It was the last race of the ski season. My son Daniel, 10 years old, was at the starting gate in his speed suit, helmet and goggles, waiting for the signal. “3… 2… 1…” The gate keeper called out and he was gone in a flash, pushing off his ski poles to gain momentum. One by one, each gate smacked to the ground when he...

Αυτό είναι το 1 πράγμα που ξεχωρίζει τους επιτυχημένους ανθρώπους

Ο Στιβ Τζομπς είχε υπερβολικά υψηλές προσδοκίες. Προκαλούσε τον εαυτό του -και τους ανθρώπους γύρω του- να δουλεύουν πιο έξυπνα, περισσότερο και πιο σκληρά ώστε να μπορούν να πραγματοποιήσουν όλα τα όνειρά τους.  Ο Τζομπς πίστευε στη δύναμη του να ζητάς. Πίστευε πως όλοι μπορούμε να αφήσουμε το στίγμα μας στο μέλλον. Και, ίσως πιο σημαντικό, ο Τζομπς πίστευε στη θεμελιώδη δύναμη της πίστης στον εαυτό...

What to Do When You’re Covering for Colleagues — and Can’t Keep Up

And soon enough your colleagues may be asking you to cover for them while they’re away. All of a sudden, you’re juggling not only your normal work but also someone else’s. That’s potentially more email, more tasks, more meetings, and more searching for answers to questions about items outside of...

How to Minimize Stress Before, During, and After Your Vacation

It’s a Catch-22 millions of workers face: You plan a vacation to relax, rejuvenate, and forget all about the stresses of work. But being out of the office means cramming in extra work up until you leave — and making up for lost time once you return. So perhaps it’s little surprise that a study in the Netherlands found vacationers are no happier than non-vacationers after a break....

The Case for the 6-Hour Workday

The eight-hour workday harkens back to 19-century socialism. When there was no upper limit to the hours that organizations could demand of factory workers, and the industrial revolution saw children as young as six-years-old working the coal mines, American labor unions fought hard to instill a 40-hour work week, eventually ratifying it as part of the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938. So much has changed...

Research: When Overconfidence Is an Asset, and When It’s a Liability

What happens to people who are overconfident? Are they generally rewarded, promoted, and respected? Or do we distrust them and avoid collaborating with them? Our research suggests it may depend on how they express confidence. One way people express confidence is verbally. We make specific, numeric expressions of confidence in our judgments, such as when making probabilistic forecasts (e.g., I’m 90% sure), or when estimating...
