How Seishindo Executive Coaching can make you more Effective
You are well-educated and experienced in logic, analytical reasoning, and problem-solving. Your experience as a leader has prepared you to be effective from the perspective of the past. Unfortunately, this leaves you off-balance and unprepared to step confidently into the future. You need to learn from the past instead of being constrained by it, so you’re free to face the unknown territory that lies ahead. And you need to cultivate your intuitive understanding of the ways people and situations are often paradoxical and non-rational.
To become more effective, you need to focus on four things:
1) Slow down!
It’s counter-intuitive, but when you’re in the midst of overwhelm, slowing down makes it possible to accomplish more. As you learn how to slow down, you discover a natural calm and confidence. Those who are calm in the eye of the storm are the charismatic leaders people want to work with.
2) Breathe and experience your whole self
Paying attention to your breathing and posture creates an entirely new awareness of your presence – the energetic message you communicate to others and to yourself. Your non-verbal behavior plays a subtle yet powerful role in how you’re perceived – and how you feel.
3) Build better relationships with your counterparts
Business relationships can be tricky at times. You need to express your opinions and be heard, while also coming across with respect, clarity, and solutions. Expressing anger and frustration will rarely get you the results you desire.
4) Appreciate all you do have
When you are feeling stuck it is very easy to focus on everything you do not currently have, while losing your appreciation for all you do have. Balancing the good with the not so good, is an important factor in keeping your career on track. You’ve probably tried some of this in the past, but you need to perform all four actions together before the magic happens. When you slow down, breathe into the power of your whole self, build better relationships and appreciate all you do have – you will operate from a place of deep, intuitive power.
You will know how to bring your natural strengths to bear, and how to respond in a heartfelt, effective manner. You’ll have a deep appreciation for who you are, instead of trying to become someone different.
