Sea Glass

Polished by time??

"Sea glass and beach glass are naturally weathered pieces of glass, which often have the appearance of tumbled stones. "Sea glass" is physically and chemically weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water. Sea glass begins as normal shards of broken glass that are then persistently tumbled and ground until the sharp edges are smoothed and rounded. In this process, the glass loses its slick surface but gains a frosted appearance over many years. These weathering processes produce natural frosted glass. Sea glass takes 20 to 40 years, and sometimes as much as 100 to 200 years, to acquire its characteristic texture and shape." -- wikipedia "sea glass"

So what does being polished by time have to do with corporate musings? In order to answer that question, I would like to start with the definition of what "polished" means. If you think of a piece of sea glass that is washed by sand over time and polished - you will understand what my intention is with this blog. Polishing is accomplished by making something smooth as a result of being rubbed. It's the things in day-to-day life that "rub" and over time polish.

Overcoming fear

  Overcoming fear in the workplace is critical to success. It is easy to let the harmful effects of failure overwhelm us, which quickly becomes a recipe for disaster. Rather than focusing on the positive , organizations usually focus on the failures, which often result in negative consequences for employees. As a result, the organization creates a negative fear feedback loop , pushing everyone to do worse and worse.  By creating a fear-free environment, employees can express their ideas and opinions without feeling threatened. You can help them do this by actively seeking their input. Seeking input will encourage them to be more innovative and productive. Moreover, a fearless workplace will be more productive and creative. Despite this, it's essential to offer support to employees since their fears can prevent them from getting the job done. Ultimately, you will be better off if you support your employees and encourage them to overcome their fears. Overcoming fear in the workpla

Can Leadership Skills Be Developed?

  How Can Leadership Skills Be Developed? There's no "one size fits all" formula for leadership skills, as every business is unique and no two employees learn in the same way. However, there are several ways to develop leadership abilities and hone them in the workplace. Although leadership skills cannot be taught, they can be practiced and improved with the right training. Some of the most important aspects of effective leadership are: strategic thinking, communication, and change management. There's no one right way to learn these skills, but there's no shortage of courses online. Although some people are born with leadership qualities, they can be learned, as well. Despite the fact that some people are born with certain traits, you can train yourself to become a more effective leader. The most effective methods include executive coaching, self-directed learning, 360-degree feedback, and developmental job assignments. These methods are useful in develo

Focus on what you are good at doing.

The best leaders are not just talented or diplomatic , but they are also good at focusing on what they are good at doing. People have many skill sets in the business world . Some people are good at marketing but bad with numbers. Others are natural leaders, but they couldn't tell a marketing campaign from their own shadow. This is where the idea of focusing on what you are good at comes into play. It's not about being the best at everything or having ten different jobs on your resume - it's about focusing on what you are naturally talented in and making sure that you're good at it before taking over other areas of the business too. We are usually directed most strongly towards our strengths, whether we know them or not. Learning will come the easiest in the areas of our strengths.  Is it possible for you to be a good leader in every area? Of course not. It is simply not possible for anyone to be an expert in everything. If you try to be an expert in all aspects of y
