When Sitting Still is NOT the Way to Go

0

 Research on how to teach children with ADHD is unanimous.

Let them move.

“Patients and teachers need to stop telling children to sit still,” says Dr. Julie Schweitzer, Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the MIND Institute with the University of California in Davis. While Schweitzer acknowledges that physical activity can be disruptive to others, “we need to find ways to integrate socially appropriate ways of moving.”

True for children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). True for many business situations, as well.

Moving increases alertness, so the theory goes, when you have ADHD.

Our ability to stay alert is, of course, a key factor in completing any business task, as well. How often have you sat in a meeting and thought to yourself this conversation is going nowhere? Quite possibly, the conversation isn’t moving because no one present is physically moving. more

Pep Talking

0

Pep talks annoy the heck out of me.

As I read an article on pep talks I realize that the phrase “pep talk” doesn’t exist in my vocabulary. Sports coaches give pep talks. Motivational speakers give pep talks. Some religious leaders give pep talks.

That means you fire people up, right?

And then I get to thinking.

Pep = Vigor = Vitality = Drive.

Nothing wrong with that. Those are qualities I desire. In others, in myself.

I want me some pep.

Let us banish the notion of a fire-brand pep talk, just for a moment. What might happen in a chat with a colleague who is down in the dumps, cannot see his way to success? How do we facilitate pep without being annoyingly peppy? more

Manage Impatience (Your Own)

0

So many reasons to be impatient, aren’t there?

Impatient with the snail’s pace of how decisions are made.

Impatient with colleagues who don’t get their stuff done.

Impatient with yet another layer of process.


Impatient with incompetence.


Impatience with folks who lie.


Impatient with the status quo.

And yet, if you’re the one who gets impatient in a meeting, they suddenly call you an arrogant sonofabitch. What’s up with that?

Patience is a virtue. Impatience is a bigger virtue.
