It seems like the same stuff happens over and over. Everyday. Traffic on the way to work. Early morning meeting with the team to go over weekly, monthly, quarterly goals. Gossip at the copy machine. Bosses at all levels barking orders. Worker bees at all levels doing just enough work to get by so they can go home. Traffic on the way home.
Whether this is your daily scenario or not, imagine what that life is like. Is it meaningful? Is it fulfilling? Is it worthwhile? Does that person feel a sense of worth, a sense of making a difference, a sense of comfort, a sense of safety and appreciation? Probably not. A change is needed, but what?
For years I have been known as a transformation educator, a leadership trainer, a mindset shifter. The running motif with all of the individual and team clients that I have worked with is that ultimately SOMETHING needs to change. But what is it?
That’s what I help individuals, businesses leaders, organizations and teams figure out. Change is like a domino effect. You change that ONE thing, and the rest will fall into place.
Breaking Out Of The “Same Old, Same Old”
Jerry has been managing his division for seven years. Paul was there when Jerry took over. Each time Paul came to Jerry’s office, Jerry just knew there was going to be another complaint or another comparison with the former division manager. As we worked together, Jerry began to realize that Paul’s behavior was a direct response to Jerry’s reactions. We worked together to help Jerry see these situations in new ways. By changing his view, he was able to change his behavior and Paul responded differently.
So, what IS the ONE thing that changes everything? It all boils down to how you view the world around you, and how you view yourself. Change your view, and the world changes. If you are having lots of drama around you, check yourself to see what is drawing that drama to you. The kind of energy you use in your daily work and life situations will determine the quality of your life. Who do you want to be as a leader? How do you want to show up in this world so that you can have a meaningful, purposeful life?
