My Top Reads of the Past Week: Authentic Leadership

To achieve true success is to accept oneself - understanding our strengths and weaknesses and taking action to work on/with them. More so if you’re a leader. Remember, you’re still human. Your team members won’t look down on you just because you have a weakness.

I chanced upon several articles over the past week revolving around this subject. Hope it benefits you as much as it did me!

  1. Do You Know How Each Person On Your Team Likes To Work - Doing so not only helps you get to know them better, but speeds up the process of getting work done.
  2. If You Have To Fake Your Emotions At Work, Research Shows You're Probably Going To Be Miserable - Faking your emotions at work constantly will lead to burnout.
  3. What To Say When You Shouldn't Say 'Yes' And Can't Say 'No' - This has a lot to do with changing of mindsets and practice, but is essential, and very beneficial.
  4. 4 Fundamental Habits Of Authentic Leaders - Transparency and openness are the keys to achieving authenticity in the workplace.
  5. You Won’t Make It If You Fake It - You can’t act like a leader until you go through the hard steps of developing yourself from within.
  6. Mindful Leadership - The Key To Creating Successful Organizations For Which We All Want To Work - The Driven Leader is becoming a style of the past, as people are not responding well to that anymore.

Bonus: Don't fear intelligent machines. Work with them

We must face our fears if we want to get the most out of technology — and we must conquer those fears if we want to get the best out of humanity, says Garry Kasparov. One of the greatest chess players in history, Kasparov lost a memorable match to IBM supercomputer Deep Blue in 1997. Now he shares his vision for a future where intelligent machines help us turn our grandest dreams into reality.

We love what we do, feel the Timeo-Performance experience!

As busy professionals, our schedules are often filled to the brim with meetings and tasks to complete. We can get so caught up with work that we might even forget our all-important lunch and power through dinner as well. Alas, we can only do so much given the 24 hours we have in a day. While time management is vital, being productive is another matter in its entirety.Enter time batching.
