How well do you know the story of you?

Tue, Sep 27, 2016|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: , , |Comments Off on How well do you know the story of you?

From Eric McNulty at strategy+business: Knowing your story — understanding what makes you you — is essential, and part of who you are is your setbacks and failures. Acknowledging your own missteps, struggles, and pain is necessary to acquire the emotional intelligence central to leadership effectiveness. In particular, empathy for others comes from admitting mistakes. Receiving a promotion may be testament to your talent and hard work, but getting laid off presents a test of your character, adaptive capacity, and resilience. When life stops being easy, you have to dig deep to find your true passion. Executive coach Eddie Erlandson calls this discovering your genius zone, the work you’re so passionate about you’d do it for free — but which you figure out how to get paid for. · Go to How well do you know the story of you? →

From Edward Hallowell: ADHDers find it hard to control their emotions and moods. If we don’t understand how our emotions affect our lives, and we don’t have ways to rein them in, our days can turn into a roller-coaster ride.
