A nightmare about work.
A fear-based dream about your place of employment, roles and responsibilities, co-workers, clients and conflicts.
Ex. I had a workmare last night about a Nerf-gun war at work where the Nerf darts were full of truth serum. When I got hit with a Nerf bullet in my back side, I told my boss he was a bosshole!
I woke up before the end of the dream but I was sure I got fired.
Have you ever experienced tense moments at work or home when people disagree, over- power, feel intimidated, defend, offend, prove people wrong, prove that they are right, get frustrated or angry and think, say and do things that are hurtful? Yes?!
So have I, and I have definitely contributed to these in different ways. That's why I developed the process below.
We had just finished Day 1 of our Ultimate Leadership Experience session at Le Nordik: a beautiful lodge where our clients come to be really present, to heighten awareness and develop courage and rock their business. At early evening, it was just as beautiful and inviting as it was during the day: the brightness of the wooden floors, reflected the light coming through the large windows.
What if it is this simple… that there are just 5 requirements for you and your team to really feel successful: realize your goals and minimize the anxious, less productive experiences that the volume of work can bring?
Would you honour those requirements?
Here they are:
During holiday season, when I'm on holiday, seeing others on holiday, meeting with people whose people are on holiday, I notice more, and I notice things differently.
- I notice the mind slows down and can be present, more easily.
- That if I pause and breathe, and choose to take in all that's around me, the breeze, the gentle waves, the birds and crickets, the rustling leaves... that I feel really good, deep down in my soul.
- I notice people smile more on holidays.
It can be stressful, exhausting and near impossible to be high performing all the time.
What can you do to regularly assess your individual and team’s level of inspiration, drive and commitment toward your goals?
Last week we shared with you how to create and make regular use of a Shared Vision to inspire your team, even during busy times. Let me share with you how we created a Shared Vision for The Leadership Group, so you get a sense of flow and impact on people's motivation.
