People Skills - Two Areas To Develop For Networking

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .





Leaders, Consultants, Coaches, Strategic Planners and Entrepreneurs - Your interpersonal skills (i.e., your ability to deal with others in various circumstances and contexts) and the broadness (breadth) of your knowledge base (your ability to speak about and identify with people across a vast spectrum of diverse interests) are a great deal more important than your technical skills or your native business acumen.

You must become a student (and eventually a master) at behavioral psychology (everyone you deal with will have emotional issues that you will have to either address head-on or to navigate around), and you must not be too specialized or captively focused in a narrow field of work or study, because you will be unable to relate to or converse with the larger network of people -- potential contacts, clients and friends -- that surrounds you. If you are too narrowly-focused, you tend to isolate yourself from many business and social opportunities for self-growth, professional growth and business growth. Yes -- you become a technical island drifiting away from the mainland of Humanity.

Diversify your inputs, your studies, your pursuits and broaden your horizons -- learn a little bit more about a great many things -- don't be afraid of becoming too much of a generalist, or expending your time on things unrelated to your immediate occupation.

The more you understand about the workings of people, and the more you know about a great of topics, the greater the probability of your having increasingly productive meetings with people in general. When you widen you circle, you multiply your possibilities.

Today, Braintenance Brings Thinkers, Tinkers, Thought-Leaders, Entrepreneurs, Initiators and Cantankerous Instigators (Some Of Whom are Members of TNNWC -- although I blush to say it) a knowledge base diversification and expansion program from none other than Dictionary.Com:

Try these:

Strange and Amusing Flashcards:

Bottom line: The more you know about people, and the broader your knowledge of things in general, the greater likelihood of your success in the game of life.
What the title of this post should have been:
Intellectual Diversification - Expand Your Networking Ability and Leadership Skills.

Creativity: Unlimited and Unleashed - But From Where?

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



"Creativity is the spark which ignites and incites innovation, entrepreneurship, invention, scientific and social breakthroughs, the creation of great works and all of society's progress. To find the wellspring of creativity and to be able to access it at will is every thinker's dream." DC



Where do brilliant ideas come from? Those ideas which produce insights, breakthroughs and inspiration for inventors, entrepreneurs and leaders? For great Mathematicians and scientists? For Artists?

I have heard numerous references to the "Akashic Records," "Cosmic Consciousness," the "One Universal Mind," "Spirit Guides," "Guardian Angels," and "Masters." I have yet to endorse any of these individual terms, or the theories which underlie them, but I will admit that there is something there.

Perhaps the source of it is subconsciously internal (within us), or perhaps superconsciously internal (within us, but sparked by access to some giant, timeless outside body of knowledge and energy which we do not quite fully understand.

For the purposes of self-growth, professional achievement and business success, we are always looking for ways to tap into a reservior of creativity -- wherever and whatever it actually is. Some of us attempt to access this through groupthink and brainstorming sessions, meditation (transcendental, hypnotic, transmission, yoga, visualization, lucid dreaming, NLP, subliminal videos and tapes, listening to Mozart and the like) or other techniques.

What does matter is that we keep our minds open to some of these amazing possibilities -- perhaps we should even experiment with a variety of them to "open the door" to inspiration and energies that ordinarily seem elusive to us. I would urge you to experiment in the laboratory of your life.

In BRAINTENANCE, ENTREPRENEURIAL ADVICE AND INSIGHTS, REASON OUT OF RANDOMNESS and in numerous of my other blogs I have alluded to this...

Inventors, Entrepreneurs and Leaders: The Ultimate Creative Resource

On this subject, I received the following email today with an embedded video about celebrated author Napoleon Hill and one of his "secrets."

I do not endorse the producers of the newsletters or the video, either in terms of agenda, philosophy, content or product, but I definitely recommend that you give the brief letter and the video some serious consideration:
---------------
Back in 1937, a man by the name of Napoleon Hill pissed off a lot
of people.
The source of this consternation was his book called 'Think and
Grow Rich'.
In this book was a mental visualization technique that Hill himself
was hesitant to even reveal - and that his publisher was this close
to axing, for fear of public backlash.
It was called the 'Invisible Counselor' technique.
What exactly is it?
Hill describes it as a visualization exercise that allows you to tap
into the imaginary minds of anyone living or dead, to source ideas
and inspiration.
Which means you could use it to have a chat with Gandhi. A coffee with
Churchill. Or a meeting with Socrates.
Weird? Fascinating? Impossible? You decide - check out this video:
---------------
I would enjoy hearing your thoughts on the matter, if you would simply return to this page after watching this thought-provoking video abou the author of Think And Grow Rich.
Faithfully,

Business And Social Leadership Choices - Team Selection and Teamwork

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



Dear Braintenance Buffs, Visionaries, Entrepreneurs, Business Leaders, Community Activists, TNNWC Members, Douglas E. Castle Followers (I Love You, yes - I Do), managers, and professional athletic coaches:

Teams exist because of the potential for complementarity and synergy. Finding, organizing and leading good team members as a cohesive group focused toward a common or shared objective --- these are challenges.



I've identified several of the challenges. This is NOT a survey. Just take a look at the components of team-building and team-working and determine the following things:

1. Which are the most important challenges to meet? (rank them)

2. Which are the most difficult challenges to meet? (rank them)

3. Which are the challenges which consume the most time? (rank them)

4. Which are the challenges which scuttle or sidetrack most team efforts? (identify them)

5. Given a choice, would you rather work with a small team of extraordinarily talented people, or a larger, more diverse team of people who are looking for (i.e., very responsive to) leadership? (this will tell you a great deal about your self-perception, and what type of organization positions you would be best suited for...)

There are no "yes or no" or "right or wrong" answers. Or maybe there are, but I'm just not telling you...

Here are the challenges:

  • Finding the right members;
  • Selling the members on the principle of teamwork;
  • Assembling the team with each member to his or her greatest utility to the group;
  • Keeping the group focused on the target, and on the straight path;
  • Dealing with intragroup squabbles and arguments;
  • Dealing with hidden agendas and dishonesty (deliberate or unconsciously manifest);
  • Maintaining momentum;
  • Maintaining a universal positive mental attitude;
  • Keeping each member focused on his or her most critical team function;
  • Leading the team toward a goal;
  • Selling the team on the benefit to each and all of achieving your expressed goal;
  • Dealing with power struggles, insubordination and undermining or usurping your command;
  • Dealing with slow progress and distant rewards;
  • Keeping the team objective at the fore;
  • Getting honest feedback from each team member, as required;
  • Getting the attention of the team when confronted with crises, obstacles, fears, impediments, delays, disappointments and difficulties;
  • Keeping the team cohesive;
  • Showing members respect as individuals and as group participants;
  • Portraying and demonstrating strength as a leader;
  • Balancing between too much discipline and micromanagment (on the one hand), and too much individualism and independence (on the other);
  • Dealing with team m,embers who have customarily been leaders;
  • Dealing with team members who usually work alone (as in certain types of technical specialists);
  • Exerting admonishment and discipline as and if needed;
  • Providing compliments and a show of gratitude when warranted;
There are many others, too. Give this some thought. After all, each of us is a leader, and each of us is a follower...and at some point, each of must operate, in some capacity as a team player.

Good luck,

This is a simple Braintenance post by Douglas E. Castle of TNNWC. It should give you a new look at why we write. Please read it with your mind opened for expansionary purposes .....


WRITING
By Douglas E. Castle

We write to remember things; to tell others things; to give tangible, transferable substance to out thoughts.

We even write to read our own words, as if validating our reality, our real existence.

But ultimately, and its most serious form and toward its most solemn purposes, writing is an act of surrender. An act of surrender to the reality that we are mere mortals, with lives short and uncertain --

And if we are compelled to somehow transcend our own inevitable deaths through the written word, the poem or the song which lives long beyond us, in immortality and in memoriam.

Every writing is a part of its writer, and perhaps, even an epitaph fully ready upon shudderingly short notice.

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .



Entrepreneurs. Working 24/7. Focusing, but fighting distractions. Your mind needs to De-Stress, Re-Focus and Balance with these hypnotically seductive patterns.

You'll find them at the BRAINTENANCE BLOG -- click on http://braintenance.blogspot.com/ . Scroll down until you get to Exercise Set #1. The patterns actually move (we give you instructions as to how to get them moving -- some folks in the focus group actually picked up their iPads and Notebooks and started twirling them around). Jeez.

Both BRAINTENANCE and RadioDAZZ (at http://radiodazz.blogspot.com/) were created by smart people (and they also invited me!) to encourage you to take multiple breaks during the day to re-charge your batteries, reduce your blood pressure, constructively distract yourself (with video tricks, brain gym games and exercises, and great music, too), give you a dose of alpha relaxation, spark your creative inspiration, get your mojo working (some people take medications for that, but we have something pretty darn good), and to let you have JOY and FUN. You might need to Google these last two bolded terms.

Both of these nifty Blogs are part of the TNNWC Blogosphere. If you are an entrepreneur, the leader of a growing company, the captain of an emerging enterprise, or a small biz wiz on the rapid road to getting much bigger, you should join us. Membership is free, and the benefits are absolutely stunning (I'm feeling faint already). Go to http://www.tnnwc.com/ and just click on a button or other gizmo that says "JOIN US" or "BECOME A MEMBER". Don't press the red button that says "EJECT."

At TNNWC, we (experts, all) work hand-in-hand beside you to solve your problems and achieve your goals. We create the campaign, select the best tools, and then we roll up our sleeves and work with you on a personalized, highly-interactive and budget-sensitive basis. We don't sell you "off the shelf" solutions (which usually come with inadequate instructions), or hand you down lofty advice and walk away. We will become the best, most resourceful partner you'll ever have. You're not a victim, a mark, a sale or a customer -- you are our Client. You are the reason that we exist.

Our solutions are the most direct, scalable (for your company size and budget considerations) and results-oriented (real metrics, real measures, real expectations -- we deliver). Talk to us. We are about taking action and achieving outcomes.

Look out below!

Faithfully,

Douglas Castle, Chairman and CEO, TNNWC Group, LLC.

Thinking Burns Significant Calories - And Builds Innovative Abilities

Share this ARTICLE with your colleagues on LinkedIn .





Thinking burns calories, and more than you'd expect. [From Douglas Castle's noted BRAINTENANCE Blog]

Yes, It's true. The human brain, conducting its routine functions (some of which are conscious and voluntary and some of which are unconscious and involuntary) tends to consume an average of 20% of your daily caloric intake, provided that you are not grossly overweight, or that you have not gorged yourself with funnel cakes and corn dogs during the course of the day. Using your brain, and hence your mind, is most definitely an exercise requiring some level of physical exertion.

This means that if you were to consume 2,400 Calories per average day, your brain (as if it were the same as any other muscle at work) would consume approximately 480 Calories. Several experts opine on this subject at ShareCare.Com, including such notables as Mehmet Oz, Kristy Lee Wilson, Todd Townes, Mike Clark and Wendy Batts, at http://www.sharecare.com/question/brain-calories-at-rest. The article is fascinating.

This, of course, begs the question: "Does the brain burn calories at a higher rate during certain mental activities?" Some possible theories and answers (more opinion and anecdotal than scientifically studied and verified) are summarized in a summary of study results which can be found at http://www.physicsforums.com/archive/index.php/t-42053.html. They seem a bit confusing at first, but I'll follow this summary with my own, logic-based conclusions:
[Does more activity (thinking more than normal) cause an increased need for calories?According to Arthur Jensen, yes (and no researcher seems to disagree with that, judging by the contents of the abstracts returned by a combined search for the keywords glucose, brain and energy on PubMed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?CMD=search&DB=pubmed&term=glucose+brain+energy)). Magnetic resonance studies involving glucose doped with radioisotopic tracers show more glucose use when the brain is active and show more glucose use in areas of the brain involved inspecific activities. This has allowed researchers to see which areas of the brain are activated during given specific types of cognitive activity. For example, a test subject may be asked to perform a certain cognitive task or even take an IQ test while his brain is being scanned. The areas of his brain that are activated during performance of the task are then visible to the researchers.
Another study [27] investigated glucose metabolic rate (GMR) as a function of the "mental effort" expended on a task. The investigators did not correlate GMR with the same test for each individual, but compared groups of average and high-IQ subjects (mean IQ of 104 vs. 123) on easy tasks and on difficult tasks that were equated for the same degree of either "easiness" or "difficulty" within each group. Regardless of the task's objective demands, tasks for which 90% of the responses were correct (within the average group, or within the high-IQ group) were defined as "easy" for each group, and tasks for which only 75% of the responses were correct (within each group) were defined as "difficult." In other words, the level of a task's subjective difficulty was calibrated relative to each group's ability. For example, the average-IQ group could recall 6 digits backwards on 75% of the trials, whereas the high-IQ group could recall 7 digits on 75% of the trials. The measurements of GMR during these tasks revealed a significant interaction between IQ level and "mental effort" (i.e., level of difficulty relative to the individual's general ability level). Average- and high-IQ subjects hardly differed in GMR on the "easy" items but differed markedly on the "difficult" items. The high-IQ subjects brought more "fuel" to bear on the more difficult task. This increase in GMR by the high-IQ subjects suggests that more neural units are involved in their level of performance on a difficult task that is beyond the ability of the average-IQ subjects.
27. Larson et al., 1995.


Larson G. E., Haier R. J., LaCasse L. & Hazen K. (1995). Evaluation of a "mental effort" hypothesis for correlations between cortical metabolism and intelligence. Intelligence (http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/journal/01602896), 21, 267-278.
(Arthur Jensen. The g Factor (http://www.questia.com/PM.qst?a=o&d=24373874). pp 158-159, 168, 616-616.)]

My logically-rationalized intuitive feeling about this "additional caloric burn" is that any of the following activities (I've called them "exercises" for purposes of conformity and simplicity) will cause increased glucose (Calories in suger) consumption in the brain. I shall not even hazard a guess at the extent of the "extra caloric burn."

EXERCISES: assimilating new information; making a ssociations and generalizations; making adaptations through neuroplasticity for injuries or deficiencies in other functional areas; puzzle-solving; map reading; abstract reasoning; tasks requiring multiple mental skill sets operating in full integration; neurolinguisitic reprogramming of previous beliefs and paradigms; memory and recall exercises; tasks requiring recall and multisensorial visualization; organizing and prioritizing tasks; creating processes and procedures to solve problems; processing feedback and reacting to the same in an unfamiliar environment; being forced to use less-popular or "dormant" mental faculties; explorations using the acknowledged senses; being forced to make emotionally or spiritually difficult choices with intense time limitations; and, in general, using the creative and imaginative processes.

I also suspect that if you do a great deal of deep thinking about a particular news item, idea or concept while exercising physically, this increases the rate of entire body caloric burn, and possible makes that portion dedicated to cerebration slightly higher than the traditional 20%.

Note: Maintain and train your brain, as well as your body - your physical and psychological health, as well as your level of cognitive growth, are all interrelated.
