Energy + Motivation (HBR Emotional Intelligence Series)

release date: Dec 06, 2022
Energy + Motivation (HBR Emotional Intelligence Series)
Manage your energy, stay motivated. Some work projects excite us--we jump right in and become so engaged and consumed with what we're doing that we run the risk of burning out. Other times, we find ourselves in a slump--everything on our to-do list is something we don't actually want to do. But we don't have to live in either extreme. We can regulate our energy and find ways to get started--and keep going--even on tasks we don't enjoy. We can set boundaries with ourselves and others to make progress and feel accomplished without feeling completely drained. Energy + Motivation explores how to manage your energy productively and boost your motivation even when your stamina falters. With the latest psychological research and practical advice from leading experts, you'll learn how to make choices about how you're using your energy and what and whom you're giving it to, build in breaks and opportunities to recharge, build a force field to protect yourself from those who drain your energy and demotivate you, and psych yourself up even when you're having an off day. How to be human at work. The HBR Emotional Intelligence Series features smart, essential reading on the human side of professional life from the pages of Harvard Business Review.

Reinforcements

release date: Jun 12, 2018
Reinforcements
Humans have a natural instinct to help others. Imagine walking up to a stranger on the subway and asking them for their seat. What about asking a random person on the street if you could borrow their phone? If the idea makes you squeamish, you're not alone--social psychologists have found that doing these very things makes most of us almost unbearably uncomfortable. But here's the funny thing: even though we hate to ask for help, most people are wired to be helpful. And that's a good thing, because every day in the modern, uber-collaborative workplace, we all need to know when and how to call in the cavalry. However, asking people for help isn't intuitive; in fact, a lot of our instincts are wrong. As a result, we do a poor job of calling in the reinforcements we need, leaving confused or even offended colleagues in our wake. This pragmatic book explains how to get it right. With humor, insight, and engaging storytelling, Heidi Grant, PhD, describes how to elicit helpful behavior from your friends, family, and colleagues--in a way that leaves them feeling genuinely happy to lend a hand. Whether you're a first-time manager or a seasoned leader, getting people to pitch in is what leadership is. Fortunately, people have a natural instinct to help other human beings; you just need to know how to channel this urge into what it is you specifically need them to do. It's not manipulation. It's just management.

How to Communicate Successfully: The Halvorson Collection (2 Books)
Communication in the workplace is more important than ever. This Harvard Business Review digital collection presents the work of social psychologist and bestselling author Heidi Grant Halvorson. In No One Understands You and What to Do About It, Halvorson explains why we’re often misunderstood and how we can fix that. Most of us assume that other people see us as we see ourselves, and that they see us as we truly are. But neither is true. Our everyday interactions are colored by subtle biases that distort how others see us—and also shape our perceptions of them. You can learn to clarify the message you're sending once you understand the lenses that shape perception—trust, power, and ego—and how these lenses affect your interactions. In the short, powerful Nine Things Successful People Do Differently, the strategies and goals of the world’s most successful people are on display—backed by research that shows exactly what has the biggest impact on performance.

No One Understands You and What to Do About It

No One Understands You and What to Do About It
Have you ever felt you’re not getting through to the person you’re talking to, or not coming across the way you intend? You’re not alone. That’s the bad news. But there is something we can do about it. Heidi Grant Halvorson, social psychologist and bestselling author, explains why we’re often misunderstood and how we can fix that. Most of us assume that other people see us as we see ourselves, and that they see us as we truly are. But neither is true. Our everyday interactions are colored by subtle biases that distort how others see us—and also shape our perceptions of them. You can learn to clarify the message you’re sending once you understand the lenses that shape perception: • Trust. Are you friend or foe? • Power. How much influence do you have over me? • Ego. Do you make me feel insecure? Based on decades of research in psychology and social science, Halvorson explains how these lenses affect our interactions—and how to manage them. Once you understand the science of perception, you’ll communicate more clearly, send the messages you intend to send, and improve your personal relationships. You’ll also become a fairer and more accurate judge of others. Halvorson even offers an evidence-based action plan for repairing a damaged reputation. This book is not about making a good impression, although it will certainly help you do that. It’s about coming across as you intend. It’s about the authenticity we all strive for.

The 8 Motivational Challenges

The 8 Motivational Challenges
From the author of Succeed and Focus, a quick and easy guide to motivating anyone – including yourself. There is no one-size-fits-all way to get people motivated. Anyone who tells you that you should do X to get the most out of your employees, your students, or even yourself, isn’t telling you that – at best – X only works for some of the people, some of the time. In this short guide Heidi Grant Halvorson identifies the eight different types of underperformers and draws on research from her books Succeed and Focus to offer tailored strategies for lighting a fire under each one. Underperformers range from the truly achievement challenged to those who are actually performing at a high level but could perform even better if someone knew the right way to motivate them. Halvorson explains how we can understand each profile in terms of the mindset and motivational focus they bring to their work, in addition to the confidence with which they approach it. For each profile, each she lays out specific, evidence-based strategies for increasing effectiveness and engagement. Succinct and focused, this prescriptive guide will appeal to readers of What Successful People Do Before Breakfast and 9 Things Successful People Do Differently.
