Where Men Leaders are Better Than Women – Dan Rockwell

Dan’s article – “Where Men Leaders are Better Than Women” got me thinking about a great book I read some time ago by Dee Dee Myers. Dee Dee Myers – author of “Why Women Should Rule The World” – believes that women are more successful at managing and running small businesses than men because women can make people accountable for their actions but, they can also be there to support them. “Females have that trait, where maybe most males do not.” Empathy – the ability to see things from someone else’s point of view. It’s argued that women come by empathy naturally and most men have to work at it. I believe it can be a learned behavior. With out it – men are going to have a difficult time building collaborative teams, establishing relationships and managing others. You can’t start and run a business by yourself. We may be living in a world of high-tech but success is still about high-touch. EQ (Emotional Intelligence) is just as important – if not more important – than IQ. You don’t have to be the smartest person in the room to be the most successful. But you do have to be able to communicate and interact effectively with others. If you can’t communicate – you can’t manage – period. Enjoy the read – Cheers. 🙂

Five Keys to Enhancing Your Emotional Intelligence | Psychology Today

Great article on EQ – originally published by Preston Ni. Managers must never lose sight of the fact that they are in the people business. Their success and the overall success of their organization is based on their ability to communicate and interact more effectively with others. Daniel Goleman first coined the phrase – Emotional Intelligence – is his epic book – “Working with Emotional Intelligence”. Being successful as a manager is no longer dependent upon your technical ability alone. EQ (Emotional Intelligence) now plays a more pivotal role in your ability to lead others and build collaborative teams. I believe that you aren’t born knowing how to communicate and interact effectively with others, but you can learn how – providing you are open and receptive to change. After all – your career depends on it. Enjoy the read 🙂 Let me know what you think.

How to Maintain a Positive Attitude As a Business Owner

I believe everything that happens to you in life – even the negative things – are positives. Even the negative things that happen are positives because they present you with an opportunity to grow – an opportunity to learn from them and move on. Attitude – your attitude is a choice that only you get to make. Only you get to decide how you want to react to any given situation. (Between stimuli and response – lies choice – a choice only you get to make) Your attitude is 100% in your control. React in a way that is going to get you want you want. To react any differently is a total waste of energy and time. Enjoy the video and have yourself one heck of a great day. 🙂
