8 qualidades essenciais que definem uma grande liderança:


8 Essential Qualities That Define Great Leadership

Kimberly FriesUnder 30i
Company leaders are facing a crisis. Nearly one-third of employees don’t trust management. In addition to this, employers now have to cater to the needs of the millennial generation. On average, after graduating from college, a millennial will change jobs four times before they are 32. Most of them also don’t feel empowered on their current jobs.
It’s clear that many leaders are failing to foster a sense of trust and loyalty in their employees. Fortunately, that doesn’t have to be the case. Managers who show great leadership qualities can inspire their teams to accomplish amazing things, according to Daniel Wang, here are eight of the most essential qualities that make a great leader.

1. Sincere enthusiasm
True enthusiasm for a business, its products, and its mission cannot be faked. Employees can recognize insincere cheerleading from a mile away. However, when leaders are sincerely enthusiastic and passionate, that’s contagious. For instance, someone who worked with Elon Musk on the early stages of his SpaceX project said that the true driver behind the success of the project was Musk’s enthusiasm for space travel.
Wang says being enthusiastic helps a leader identify existing key problems in his industry. “Any innovation starts from these problems and ends with products and services, with some of the key issues resolved,” he said.

2. Integrity
Whether it’s giving proper credit for accomplishments, acknowledging mistakes, or putting safety and quality first, great leaders exhibit integrity at all times. They do what’s right, even if that isn’t the best thing for the current project or even the bottom line.
 “When people see evidence that leaders lack integrity, that can be nearly impossible to recover from,” Wang said. “Trust lost is difficult to get back.”

3. Great communication skills
Leaders must motivate, instruct and discipline the people they are in charge of. They can accomplish none of these things if they aren’t very skilled communicators. Not only that, poor communication can lead to poor outcomes. Leaders who fail to develop these skills are often perceived as being weak and mealy-mouthed, according to Wang. It’s also important to remember that listening is an integral part of communication.

4. Loyalty
The best leaders understand that true loyalty is reciprocal. Because of this, they express that loyalty in tangible ways that benefit the member of their teams. True loyalty is ensuring that all team members have the training and resources to do their jobs. It’s standing up for team members in crisis and conflict.
“Great leaders see themselves as being in a position of service to their team members,” Wang said. “Employees who believe leadership is loyal to them are much more likely to show their own loyalty when it matters.”

5. Decisiveness
A good leader isn’t simply empowered to make decisions due to their position. They are willing to take on the risk of decision making. They make these decisions and take risks knowing that if things don’t work out, they’ll need to hold themselves accountable first and foremost.
Further, bosses who aren’t decisive are often ineffective. Too much effort working on consensus building can have a negative effect. Rather than simply making a decision, many leaders allow debate to continue, and then create a piecemeal decision that satisfies no one.

6. Managerial competence
Too many organizations try to create leaders from people who are simply good at their jobs. To be clear, those who emerge as being very good workers often have important qualities. They are the ones who have a strong understanding of the company’s products and services. They understand company goals, processes, and procedures. All of these are important.
On the other hand, being good at one’s job doesn’t prove that someone possesses the other competencies they need. For example, can they inspire, motivate, mentor and direct? Wang illustrates with major league baseball. While nearly all coaches have backgrounds as major league players, the most winning players aren’t necessarily the most successful coaches.

7. Empowerment
A good leader has faith in their ability to train and develop the employees under them. Because of this, they have the willingness to empower those they lead to act autonomously. Wang says this comes from trusting that their team members are fully up to any challenges they face. When employees are empowered, they are more likely to make decisions that are in the best interest of the company and the customer as well. This is true, even if it means allowing workers to go a bit off script.

8. Charisma
Simply put, people are more likely to follow the lead of those they like. The best leaders are well-spoken, approachable and friendly. They show sincere care for others.
“People at all levels of an organization find it easy to relate to them and follow their lead,” Wang concluded.
Every one of these qualities is absolutely essential to great leadership. Without them, leaders cannot live up to their full potential. As a result, their employees will never perform as well as they can either. Because of this, organizations must learn the best ways to identify and also to develop these necessary traits in existing and emerging leaders.

Pessoas felizes possuem estas 9 coisas em comum:

Science says happier people have these 9 things in common

Nov. 8, 2017, 10:20 AM

Researchers think that roughly 40% of our happiness is under our own control; the rest is determined by genetics and external factors. That means there's a lot we can do to control our own happiness.Here are nine happiness-promoting behaviors backed by science.



1. Relationships are essential. A major study followed hundreds of men for more than 70 years, and found the happiest (and healthiest) were those who cultivated strong relationships with people they trusted to support them.


2. Time beats money. A number of studies have shown that happier people prefer to have more time in their lives than more money. Even trying to approach life from that mindset seems to make people more content.


3. But it helps to have enough money to pay the bills. People's well-being rises along with income levels up to an annual salary of about $75,000, studies have found. (That number probably varies depending on your cost of living, however.)


4. It's worth stopping to smell the roses. People who slow down to reflect on good things in their lives report being more satisfied.


5. Acts of kindness boost the mood. Give your friends a ride to the airport or spend an afternoon volunteering. Some research has shown that people who perform such acts report being happier.


6. Breaking a sweat is about more than burning calories. Studies show that increased levels of physical activity are connected to higher levels of happiness. Exercise tends to help mitigate the symptoms of some mental illnesses as well.


7. Fun is more valuable than material items. People tend to be happier if they spend their money on experiences instead of things. Researchers have also found that buying things that allow you to have experiences — like rock climbing shoes or a new book to read — can also increase happiness.


8. It helps to stay in the present in the moment. Several studies have found that people who practice mindfulness meditation experience greater well-being.


9. Time with friends is time well spent. Interactions with casual friends can make people happier, and close friendships — especially with happy people — can have a powerful effect on your own happiness as well.

10 Qualities That Will Make You Successful

What exactly is the recipe to make you successful?
There is not a perfect recipe, however here are some points that normally appear in successful people:


Resilience

Let’s face it: there will always be times of uncertainty in our lives. The difference is how you handle them. Being effective in difficult circumstances is what will allow change and move you forward.


Honesty

Being honest with yourself will allow you to really see what it takes to achieve your goals. Are you scared of moving forward with your dream? Recognize it. It's really helpful to understand yourself and your fears.
Need help? Ask. Want a job? Be honest in your curriculum. Your reputation will thank you.


Time Management

Being productive with your time is essential in working towards your goals, professionally and personally. 


Patience

You might not see immediate results when working towards something long term. You need to trust in yourself, even though there doesn’t seem to be any kind of change happening. People who don’t succeed don’t have the patience to wait and see what happens months or even years from now.


Courage

Behind every successful person exist many stories of failure. While having your best plans blow up in your face is scary, it’s all part of the learning process.


Networking

Successful people never achieve anything on their own. In fact, they would probably tell you that it’s impossible.  Having people who can mentor you, keep you responsible, and talk to you during a hard time will make you grow. Go out there and start meeting people. Now.


Passion

What do you truly enjoy in life? Successful people inject passion into what they do. Let’s say you want to start a photography business, but hate having to market yourself. A successful person would work hard at marketing because they know that without clients, they cannot pursue their passion of having a photography business.


Vision

Do you have a clear idea of what you want and how to get it? Successful people do. They take
the time to clearly define what they want, and create a strategy to help with that vision.


Adaptability

Having a plan is definitely important on your road to success. But what if things change? How easily will you move from one circumstance to the next? Successful people are able to change with every turn and adapt to situations that appear. Will you be one of those people?


Creating Value For Others

Why would anyone pay attention to you if you don’t have something to offer? Successful people know that they need to build their skill set. Figure out what you have to offer to the world, and just do it!

How to Be Productive: 11 Ways to Be Productive and Happy at Once
Author, Entrepreneur, Podcast & TV Host Read full profile

A lack of productivity leads to a lack of happiness.
When you can’t see yourself making progress or getting things done, you get anxious and become stressful.
There are also tons of things that contribute to unhappiness here too: Facebook notifications, emails, texts, and chatty co-workers are just a small fraction of the disruptions we’re bombarded with. These “little things” can stack up fast and lead to hampering your happiness and productivity levels.
Learn how to be productive with the 11 tips below and reclaim your everyday productivity and your happiness, once and for all.


1. Be happy now
Life is too short. No matter what you’re doing or where you are, be happy now. Start by finding something to be grateful for; everyone has at least one thing to be grateful for.
Most of the world still has trouble getting access to clean drinking water… yhat means you can even be grateful for that bottle of Aquafina you’ve got on your desk right now.


2. Finish your day before it starts
Proper planning is the secret to peak productivity, and it’s also a good idea to set daily goals. Get yourself a planning tool and prioritize your daily tasks with it.
Here’s a smart technique on planning and prioritization: How to Prioritize Right in 10 Minutes and Work 10X Faster


3. Celebrate the small wins
Every time you check off a task from your to-do list, you release a “happy chemical” in your brain called dopamine. This gives you the motivation to move forward and do even more.
For example, after I finish writing this article and I’ve crossed it off my list of things to do today, I’ll get a nice burst of “happy chemicals” releasing in my brain. The best part? Zero side effects!


4. Leverage like there’s no tomorrow
Look for ways to use the good old 80/20 rule by identifying tasks that you might be able to outsource or leverage out to a virtual assistant.
Stop wasting time doing things that don’t challenge you or ignite your passion. Hire out or automate anything and everything within your means.
Check out this guide to find out how to start to delegate: How to Delegate Work (the 


5. Recharge your batteries
Figure out how many hours of sleep your body needs and make sure you get it. Take time to stretch, walk, or relax—you’ll be glad you did.
Here’re some simple ways to relax completely and get rid of stress.


6. Become an early riser
This is one of the most underused productivity “hacks” on the planet. Ever since I decided to start waking up at 5am every day, my productivity levels and happiness have gone up dramatically.
Most people aren’t up that early, so no one can bother you or disrupt you from what you want to do. Use this time to exercise, meditate, or to get a head start on your day.
Not sure how to wake up earlier? Here are 11 Ways To Become an Early Riser Like Most Successful People Do.


7. Do work you’re passionate about
Make it your goal to blur the line between work and play by doing more things you’re passionate about. This promotes happiness both inside and outside of the workplace.
Find what you’re passionate about and do it, or learn how to enjoy what you do with these tips: How to Enjoy What You Are Doing No Matter What


8. Use time blocks
For example, when I wrote this article, I gave myself a one hour time block. This prevents unnecessary dilly-dallying like updating your Facebook status and checking email.
Use an app like Alarmed to keep you on track.  Here’s a snapshot of the app from my iPhone.


9. Avoid interruptions
Interruptions are among the biggest barriers to both productivity and happiness. Every time you’re interrupted in the middle of a task your level of productivity takes a hit.
We’ve all been there: you’re fully immersed in an important project until all of a sudden the workplace chatterbox appears out of nowhere and starts talking about stuff that doesn’t matter. By the time she’s gone, you’ve already forgotten where you were and it takes 30 minutes to get back on track.
Avoid this by letting people know that you’ve got important work that’s got to be done.
Learn more about how to stay focus in this guide: How to Focus and Maximize Your Productivity (the Definitive Guide)


10. Shut down the digital disruptions
iPhones, mailbox notifications, twitter, facebook, and everything that pops, slides, or fades in and out of your screen has got to go. Shut them down and focus.
It’s as easy as turning off the notifications or scheduling only a specific time to check all these notifications and texts.


11. Measure your success
Every now and then, it’s a good idea to measure your results and see how things are coming along.
How’s your progress? Are you pacing in the right direction? Are things getting better? Worse? It’s always a good idea to track your progress regularly.
With an app like Rescue Time, you can easily keep track of the time you spend throughout the day. It helps you to find out how much time you’re really on-task and so you can review your progress.
With these 11 effective ways to improve productivity, you will get more things done timely and become happier.
Start small and take up each suggestion one by one, you can boost your productivity and create your happiness too.

Minhas melhores dicas de viagem depois de 10 anos viajando o mundo!


My Best Travel Tips After 10 Years of Traveling the World
By: CHRISTY WOODROW

After over ten years of consistent travel, I’ve definitely learned my fair share of lessons.
Some of these travel problems can be avoided and some of them are just a part of traveling. You simply cannot plan for everything. However, keeping a few important things in mind will make your travels much easier. So, in no particular order, here are my 25 best travel tips.


Be Flexible
We always plan for delays and try not to get upset when things inevitably go wrong. Patience is extremely important when traveling!


Make a List
About a week or so before each trip, I make a mental list of items I don’t want to forget — which I WILL forget if I don’t write them down. I’ve learned that when I think of something, I need to write it down.



Learn Common Phrases of the Local Language
A simple “Please,” “Thank you,” and “I’m sorry” in the local language goes a long way. I also like to learn the word for beer, but that’s just me.



Always Buy Travel Insurance
A medical emergency can wipe out your savings — or even worse. We use and trust World Nomads for travel insurance.


Make Photocopies of Important Documents
When I was younger, I was very organized and kept a copy of my passport in a separate bag from my actual passport. Then I got lazy. But recently, a friend of mine lost her passport at the airport. They told her that if she had brought a copy of it and extra passport photos they would have let her travel. Since she didn’t, she missed a $2,000 flight and a week in Europe. I now carry a copy with me.



Pre-plan Your clothes
It's always a great idea to carry light bags. However, the weather instability may cause you problems. Always carry with you clothes for warmer and also colder temperatures.



Put Electronics, Medications, Toothbrush in Your Carry-on
A few important items should always go in your carry-on bag: some money, phone, extra pair of clothes, etc. You can buy most of these things if your bag gets lost, but having them in your carry-on will save you money and time if your luggage gets lost in transit.



Ask about the price BEFORE You Take Public Transportation
It’s a good idea to ask about the price before you hop on a bus, cab, or other form of transportation.



Put Your Room Number & Hotel Address in Your Phone
If you ever get lost and need to go back to your hotel, it's always a great idea to keep your hotel address on a piece of paper and in your phone.



Ask The Locals
We always ask the local people to point us to the best restaurants, awesome places to watch the sunset, the best coffee shops, parks, attractions, etc. I often get amazing tips that I would never find if the local people didn't help.


Be careful with Free Public WIFI
I always try to avoid logging into bank accounts or entering any passwords while I’m using free public WIFI at a place like an airport. However, when in your hotel room, the connections tend to be safer.



Alert Your Bank and Credit Card Company of Your Travel Plans
This is a great habit to get into if you don’t want your credit card company or bank to block your card while you are abroad.



Book Early for Cheap Flights
Flights are always the first thing I book when planning a trip — sometimes I do this nearly a year in advance! For the most part, the earlier you book, the better price you will get. 


Skyscanner site is the first place I check when searching for cheap flights 
(I highly recommend downloading the app to check fares on the go!). It searches hundreds of sites for the best fare and includes both standard and budget airlines. 



Keep an Open Mind
Don’t judge other customs. You are a visitor. Be respectful with the locals and their habits.



Leave Room for Spontaneity
Don’t plan your entire itinerary ahead of time. It’s good to have some plans, I know, but those unplanned moments while traveling can be the best memories.



Let Someone at Home Know Your Plans
This is extremely important when traveling alone, but it’s still a good idea no matter how many people are in your travel group.




Separate Your Sources of Money
Don’t keep all of your cash and cards in one place. I usually hide some cash and a back up credit card in a separate bag.



Travel First Aid Kit
We pack up a small first aid kit with aspirin, Benedryl, cold meds, cough drops, bandages, Activated Charcoal pills (these are a life saver for traveler’s diarrhea and minor allergic reactions) and other things that we may not always have easy access to when traveling. J&J sells an inexpensive mini first aid kit.
