ARE GOALS IMPORTANT?
Anyone who has ever been associated with change, either in themselves or in businesses/organisations knows that goals are vitally important for achieving success (however "success" might be defined)!
However, goals are not enough to sustain individuals or teams when things go wrong. Learn more about what you need for the longer-term to achieve success.
DOES CHANGE ALWAYS HAVE TO BE SCARY?
Change is happening in and around each of us every moment of every day!
It's scary when we don't understand that we are never in the "comfort zone" in which we think we are living. Understand this change and learn to walk pathways of uncertainty and to swim in the "swim lanes" of life or change those swim lanes to what we want to do!
I CAN'T WORK WITH THAT PERSON!
Yes, there are "difficult people" in the workplace and in many other of your many roles that you'll encounter! We'll talk more about such situations in future.
For the moment, we need to consider whether or not the challenge of working with others is entirely of their doing and their instigation. We ourselves... all of us... have various biases that impact our relationship with other people. Often, we don't recognise that the biases exist!
WHAT YOU HEARD IS NOT WHAT I MEANT!
Too often we think that language is simple! We believe that what we said is perfectly clear for everyone to understand. We're good communicators, hey?
But in business & careers where we need to influence people with what we say/do our belief in being good "socially adept" communicators falls remarkedly short. We don't know why. Here are some hints about where we need to look to find some of those shortfalls.
LEADERSHIP = PERSPECTIVE, RESPECT & SERVICE
Leadership is not about positions held but starts with Personal Leadership and develops from there to the highest reaches of any organisation or group of people collaboratively working together.
It requires the development of courage to walk pathways of uncertainty; and, to try, try and try again until you accomplish whatever objectives you set out to achieve.
YOUR BEST TEACHERS - DIFFICULT PEOPLE
You know that difficult, challenging, annoying person who is either "in your face" or "quiet as a mouse"-type. Or, the ones who come across as know-it-all or convey a sense of "I'm better than you!"
They may very well be frustrating - but, if you take the time, it's amazing what you can learn from them by observing them, engaging with them (if possible) and trying to understand what makes them tick! Are they "difficult" or simply "different"?
BELIEVE IT... YOU ARE CREATIVE!
Many people limit themselves by believing they are not creative! Creative arts have brought much happiness to humanity through painting, sculpting, entertainment forms, music and writing.
However, the term “creative arts” has done a great disservice to humanity through everyday people coming to believe that unless you are part of those activities you are not “creative”! If you problem-solve in any way you are creative. Never discount your talent for creativity!
ON HOW MANY TEAMS DO YOU PLAY YOUR LIFE?
Whether teams involve a handful of people, dozens, hundreds, thousands or (allegedly) just YOU, each member of the team and the “team as a whole” need to KNOW THEMSELVES!
To be effective each member of the “teams” – direct and indirect – need to develop their own Personal Leadership style with perspective, respect and service to “the team” and dispassionate “love” for everyone!
