Flexibility of the Fittest



[Repost] The first thing that might come to mind when you hear flexibility of the fittest is “survival of the fittest”, and yes, that’s what I’m talking about, survival of the fittest. Now, you might say, “Is she an evolutionist or creationist?” I’m a creationist, but I see how society is changing.

It’s very important for us to note that society changes. When it changes, we have to be able to shift. Part of that shift starts in our minds. We have to be able to take our mindset and shift in new directions so that we can be fitter for the current environment.

When you look at the business world and even personal, everyday life, what we did ten years ago, is not necessarily what we do today. What worked ten years ago, is not necessarily what works today. Technology has really changed. There’s really been a shift in technology. Look at Facebook and Twitter. They’ve blown up like mad both in the business world and everyday life.

 If you have the mindset that I’m going to do what I’ve always done, then you’ll always get the same results. We all know that, but you could actually create a breakdown. If you’re rigid and society is flowing by, and you’re trying to buckle against society, then you could break. You could cause yourself to break, or you could cause a breakdown in your business.

You want to make sure that you’re flexible and that you’re able to go re-look at your old goals to revamp them when needed. Re-look at your old mission statement for your company, and revamp it when needed so that you and your company can thrive in your new environment. One thing that you might want to ask yourself is, “How many new things am I doing today that I didn’t do five years ago? How am I different now, than I was then?” Evaluate. Do a personal evaluation of your level of flexibility.

Leading with Compassion



[Repost] As leaders, it’s very important that we are assertive. Assertiveness is an element of emotional intelligence. It’s basically your ability to say what needs to be said at a given time. If you look at it, assertive leaders can actually help an organization to become more effective.

For example, if you have an organization in which a leader waits until things happen or fires occur, takes a laissez fair approach, and might say something in order to put a fire out, then that person’s organization could be less effective than a leader who prevents fires from happening. The assertive leader actually stands up and says what needs to be said in order to prevent mess or disruption within the organizational processes. Having a level of assertiveness can actually save an organization time and money and increase an organization’s productivity which can lead to the organization having more money.

So, how can you increase your assertiveness? Well, one way is to practice assertiveness. Put yourself in situations in which you have to stand up for yourself or someone else. Remember that practice makes perfect.
