Article: Breaking the Cycle

Article: Breaking the Cycle

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.

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

Article: Finding Balance

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

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

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.

Article: Overcoming Worries and Fears

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!

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 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.

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.

Article: Take Time to Laugh

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.

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.

Article Summary: Conflict in the animal kingdom is usually handled in one of two ways. If some other animal invades his territory, the tiger or the grizzly bear will solve the problem with an attack. The interloping animal might even get eaten in the process. Your average bunny, on the other hand, will opt to run away.
