We can control our actions but not always the results

October 8, 2020

Yes, it’s a basic truth: we can control our actions but not always the results. That said, to what extent do we control our actions? If we aren’t doing this to the full, we have little right to consider attempting to manage the results.

Whether we refer to it as self-leadership or personal management, we can control our actions but not always the results. Accepting this gives us input to focus on all the elements of a situation we are engaging with. And with this channelling of attention and energy, we are ensuring we are doing all we are able to do.

Are we showing our ‘best side’ or our ‘I know best’ side?

October 1, 2020

How we come across to others is not always easy to assess. We might think we are friendly, funny and helpful yet, for those we interact with, we may seem annoying and noisy, or even nosey. Likewise, being confident and assertive can, at times, be construed as arrogant and rude.

So, are we showing our ‘best side’ or our ‘I know best’ side?

Clarity regarding our perceived presence plays an important part in evaluating our overall performance at work and away from the proverbial coalface. Operating from a position of collaboration and inclusion does not, of course, guarantee we are showing our ‘best side’. However, in many instances, it reduces the number of times we slip into our ‘I know best’ mode.

To explore the question ‘Are we showing our ‘best side’ or our ‘I know best’ side?’ as part of a discovery session coaching conversation, get in contact.

Right now, thanks for stopping by here and please don’t forget to like and share this ‘Are we showing our ‘best side’ or our ‘I know best’ side?’ post.

Kindest regards.

Being mean with our access and generous with our energy

September 27, 2020

Regardless of our status, giving others unlimited access to our days might lead to us being treated like doormats by everybody.

Being mean with our access and generous with our energy, on the contrary, is a strategy worth exploring.

Perhaps the word ‘mean’ is too strong here. But, in any case, each of us will attach our interpretation to it, so maybe it is not a big issue in the context of being mean with our access and generous with our energy.

That said, restricting access to our days, in person or via digital means, ensures we have the opportunity to ‘get things done’ as opposed to just ‘get through the day’.

But once we have decided, or are obliged in certain instances, to give access to someone, being generous with our energy is a powerful approach to life. By connecting with people in this manner, we are demonstrating we value them, without undervaluing ourselves.

Thanks for stopping by here today and please like and share this ‘Being mean with our access and generous with our energy’ post.
