The Maven Principle: Mastering Power Skills for Personal Development

168 views

Published on

Join founder and CEO of Creative Maven, Heather Newman as she takes you through the power skills that are essential to each of us becoming stronger employees and better humans.

We hear the term “soft skills” as the definition of personal attributes that enable us to interact effectively and harmoniously with other people.

However, there is nothing soft about mastering these skills; there is “strength” in the practice of developing these “Power” skills that are more intangible but critical to your working and interacting with the people around you effectively.

The best investment you can make is in yourself and practicing power skills helps you produce the results you want at work, at home, and in the world, building that expertise in the most critical person in your life, you.

  9. 9. Self-care. Sleep. Hydration. Nature.
  10. 10. Self-Care “Caring for myself is not self-indulgence. It is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare.“ – Audre Lorde
  11. 11. Sleep Sleep is just as important as eating healthy and exercising and we do not get enough of it.
  12. 12. Hydration Most of us are thirsty, right now and dehydrated. You lose water each day when you go to the bathroom, sweat, and even when you breathe.
  13. 13. Nature Changing your state by simply going outside for a short time every day helps us to be creative, to feel connected to nature and allows us to settle our minds.
  14. 14. Meaningful work. Creativity. Finances. Problem Solving.
  15. 15. Meaningful work We all want to feel meaning with “what we do” and that can be being a barista or being a CEO. We long for feeling like we are contributing to a greater good. When we do not we feel inadequate and depressed.
  16. 16. Creativity Creativity is defined as the tendency to generate or recognize ideas, alternatives, or possibilities that may be useful in solving problems, communicating with others, and entertaining ourselves and others. Robert E Franken, Human Motivation.
  17. 17. Finances We don’t often run our own lives like a business, we think of tomorrow instead of today living outside of our means. Becoming smarter and giving full of care to our finances keep our stress levels at bay.
  18. 18. Problem solving Solving problems are a part of our everyday work lives. They can be external for clients or internal to our business. Having confidence about providing ideas in the face of problems helps us feel like we are bringing value to the situation.
  19. 19. Teamwork. Friends. Networking. Communication.
  20. 20. Teamwork Teamwork creates a sense of belonging, connectedness, a sense of security and being a part of a team is something we all long for in all aspects of our lives.
  21. 21. Friends One of the most important things we can do is develop deep intimate friendships with other people. We don’t choose our families, but we choose our friends. At work having allies is so important and helps us to be productive, happy and creative.
  22. 22. Networking Yes, networking does take time, effort, practice and many people detest it. However, the more people you know, the more options you have when you need something: a new job, a contact for a task or a mentor.
  23. 23. Communication Effectively communicating through speaking, writing, deep listening, and clear speech creates a positive culture whether it is at work or home.
  24. 24. Confidence. Leadership. Work Ethic. Presentation Skills.
  25. 25. Confidence Showing up both in person, digitally, and on-record with confidence and strong sense of who you are and what you believe.
  26. 26. Leadership Each one of us has leadership qualities that can inspire teams to accomplish amazing things. We lead in everything we do by our example, by our actions and by what we believe.
  27. 27. Work Ethic Good habits and your values combined create your work ethic. Employers want to see this behavior not just on your resume, the proof in in your actions, not just your words.
  28. 28. Presentation Skills Be prepared, practice, practice, practice, tell a story, be yourself, and smile your audience is always rooting for you.
  29. 29. Self-love. Kindness. Forgiveness. Compassion.
  30. 30. Self-love “Self-love/compassion involves treating yourself with the same kindness, concern, and support you’d show to a good friend. When faced with difficult life struggles, or confronting personal mistakes, failures, and inadequacies, self-compassion responds with kindness rather than harsh self- judgment, recognizing that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.”
  31. 31. Kindness “The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.” This means one good deed in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day of dozens of people!”
  32. 32. Forgiveness Many times when we are in need of forgiving some one else, we actually need to forgive ourselves as well. To err is human, to forgive is divine.
  33. 33. Compassion Showing kindness, caring and a willingness to help others is a positive emotion that has connection to being thoughtful, decent and showing empathy to everyone.
