  • Article: Breaking the Cycle
    #402 ID:1526

    What problems are we trying to solve with the same old ineffective circular approach? We can usually figure this out. When a problem repeatedly rears its ugly head, our approach is likely a circular one.

    #403 ID:1528

    Your time is precious. You need customized, just-in-time solutions. This is one of the reasons corporate leaders are now working with executive coaches. The one-on-one personalized approach gives you what you need when you need it. Coaching can accommodate your busy schedule. And quite often people will tell an outsider what they won’t tell you.

  • Article: Finding Balance
    #404 ID:1527

    Everyone I know struggles to balance their work and home lives. No, wait a minute. That’s not true. My retired friends seem to have it down pat. The rest of us juggle, patch, negotiate, apply a temporary fix here and there. This isn’t very satisfying. In short, we feel as if we’re not doing justice to our careers or to our families and friends.

  • Article: Getting Creative
    #405 ID:1520

    What inspires you to create? When I ask my clients and workshop attendees this question, I’m usually met with a pause, possibly accompanied by a blank stare and a tendency to search for something shiny to focus on. Most of us aren’t used to thinking about this question, and it makes us uncomfortable. We aren’t sure we really are creative.

  • Article: Getting Enough Sleep
    #406 ID:1504

    Some people wear their sleep deprivation like a badge of honor. If they sleep less, they think they’ll get more done. As long as they don’t keel over into their bowl of soup at lunch, they figure they’re doing pretty well. CNN has suggested sleep problems are reaching epidemic proportions, and the National Commission on Sleep Disorders puts the price tag at $150 billion dollars each year in higher stress and reduced productivity.

    What are your hopes and dreams for the New Year? Maybe you’re like a friend of mine whose resolution is that she won’t have any resolutions. I recommend this for those of you who think last year was akin to spending eternity atop a treadmill set on warp speed. Maybe you need a break from resolutions.

    #408 ID:1525

    Goals are mostly a good thing, but what happens when personal or corporate goals mortgage the future for short-term gain? At what point do we recognize the folly and re-think our strategy?

  • Article: Overcoming Worries and Fears
    #409 ID:1518

    Our fears limit us. They hold us back. They keep us from living a positive, proactive life that embraces the good and decries that which needs to be changed. Fear-based decisions hurt us, and they hurt others who are affected by our decisions. The child who is never allowed to make decisions because we fear she’ll make the wrong decisions finally rebels and turns into the teenager from the black lagoon.

  • Article: Overwhelmed? Compartmentalize!
    #410 ID:1522

    When we catch ourselves elongating a mishap or problem, we can compartmentalize. Big word, but relatively easy concept. Think of your life as one that is filled with a series of rooms. One room might hold that CEO who badmouthed your brilliant work. Another might hold your career with the company.

    It is in our present moments, that we truly live. Each time we catch a pleasant scent or feel a cool spring breeze we are brought to the immediate. This gives us a chance to notice and appreciate that which surrounds us.

    It isn’t easy to experience loss, whether our loss is business-related, financial, or personal in nature. Most of us learned quite recently, for example, that the stock market giveth, and the stock market most definitely taketh away. Our response to a loss such as this can make or break us.

    It seems donkeys, though beasts of burden, have limits. Load one to excess, and it will be hard pressed to do your bidding. People who work for us are no different. Some can juggle hats, plates, balls, and flaming torches simultaneously. Even the most talented will drop it all if we add too much to the mix.

    #414 ID:1549

    All we have to do is look into a mirror. I know. It isn’t pleasant to consider that we could be responsible for our lack of success, but there it is. If we have not convinced someone, the onus is still on us to do so. It is not the decision maker’s job to convince him or herself of the idea’s merit.

  • Article: Stress - Getting Perspective
    #415 ID:1503

    Little kids run everywhere they go. Ever notice that? They don’t just move in a dignified way from room to room like we do. You get the impression that they’re afraid they’ll miss something exciting if they don’t approach life at warp speed. And they can be brought to a screeching halt by a colony of ants or a pile a leaves. If you catch us running, it’s because we’re late for a meeting.

    #416 ID:1521

    Ours is a complex, fast-paced world. We all know about the treadmill analogy. Some of us run pretty fast. The mind has a hard time catching up with the body. Some of us don’t so much identify with the treadmill as we do the Tasmanian Devil. Either way, we’re moving fast and we need a break.

    #417 ID:1514

    We need to work harder to stay positive during some seasons than others. If we haven’t supported humor and laughter in our workplace before, now is the best time to start. There are many benefits. Humor reduces stress levels because it helps us calm the chemicals that zip through our bodies when we’re agitated. We all need the physical balancing laughter offers.

    Research suggests workplace-generated stress, not just your average garden variety stress caused by the kids, mind you, but workplace-generated stress links to heart disease. When pollsters ask people to rate their stress, nearly half say they are suffering symptoms of burnout.

    This article looks at examples of reframing – of looking at an issue from a broader perspective that can help us move through life without feeling blindsided every time the unexpected happens. When we re-frame a difficult occurrence, we open our minds to positive outcomes and possibilities.

  • Article: Victims in the Workplace
    #420 ID:1550

    People who lead and manage others might consider the productivity and morale impact when others have to spend time around victims. Years ago a VP at a company I worked for fired someone who did exceptional work. I asked him why he let such a strong performer go. He said no matter how good the work, it didn’t balance out the individual’s destructive behavior on the rest of the staff.
