Making meaningful connections in a noisy marketplace

July 30, 2020

Just because we can, in theory, connect with everyone nowadays, doesn’t mean we have to. Making meaningful connections in a noisy marketplace is likely to be more:

a) Authentic;

b) Beneficial to all parties;

c) Constructive in terms of time usage.

After making meaningful connections in a noisy marketplace, we have the chance to take conversations away from the hustle and bustle of social media platforms to engage in deeper discussions in a more relaxing setting.

Yes, making meaningful connections in a noisy marketplace could be considered ‘Old School’. However, why should we throw out past strategies if they remain valid in the present and offer growth for the future?

Thanks for stopping by today, and please don’t hold back from liking and sharing this ‘Making meaningful connections in a noisy marketplace’ post.

The relationship

July 7, 2016

Relationship among seagulls

 

Irrespective of our job status, it is likely a significant chunk of our time is dedicated to understanding the relationship in which we find ourselves with those around us. We might be referring to any number of stakeholders, each one bringing to the moment needs, wants and individual motivations.

The question of connectivity goes beyond the physical. Understanding the relationship includes looking at also the virtual, social and intellectual rapport we have with our colleagues, clients, suppliers and the like.

To ensure a smooth execution of our duties, it is crucial the relationship with each is at least appreciated and ideally enhanced. As with any living entity, our interactions need constant nurturing to develop fully. Understanding the relationship suggests doing all we may to render time together beneficial to all parties.

Shared goals often facilitate this mutually productive approach. Grievances and misunderstandings require immediate attention, coupled with a non-judgemental mindset, to resolve issues before they undermine completely the working environment.

Who makes the first effort, however, is unimportant provided it is made. In attempting to boost the relationship, we can call upon our experience, knowledge , and something many times ignored: our intuition. If something does not feel right to us, it is highly likely there is indeed something not quite right.

Giving attention to workplace well-being in many instances begins with us looking at what we bring to the various relationships at work. For now, however, thanks for reading this ‘The relationship‘ post today.

Marking the spot

December 6, 2015

Sign marking the spot

Certain places, particular moments as well as specific people, all have gone about marking the spot of their existence somehow in our life.

Whether it is a matter of marking the spot by linking the episode to an external event, an internal feeling triggered by a memory or possibly through one of our senses, doesn’t really matter. The spot on our timeline has been marked.

Looking at the highlights of the year to date, we could be struck by just how much we have done, received, enjoyed and encountered. Each of us will have our own unique set of items marking the spot here and there.

It might be an interesting exercise to trace a thread running through them to underline the connectivity of everything. This, however, need not distract us from merely appreciating our life until now and, hopefully, building opportunities for marking the spot from today onwards.

Visualizing a path leading to our desired objectives, what or who would you like to be marking the spot at various points along the way? What are you already doing to bring about such a scenario? What more are you prepared to do? And the two big questions: Will you? and By when?

Answering these questions may help in the process of reaching goals. But, if nothing else, it is a method of marking the spot in which you were at least prepared to investigate aspects of your personal development.

If you’d like to share your thoughts on the ideas expressed here, please leave a comment below. To explore how coaching can help in the clarification process, feel free to get in touch. In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘Marking the spot‘ post.
