Recently I was caught in a lockdown and confined to a hotel room in Manila. In that time I created a few videos to help you deal with Coronavirus and its impact on you, your organization and those near to you.
The intent is to ensure that we all make it through the COVID-19 concern as unscathed as possible, on both personal and professional fronts.
The subsequent videos will take you through:
• Video 1 - The cause of “Panic” thinking
• Video 2 - Simple strategies to calm emotions and thinking
• Video 3 - Leverage a difficult situation into resilience for the future
" her family wasn't very good at talking about important stuff. And of all of them, she was the least good at it. When she tried, it felt like all the chains on all her imagined safes and trunks started rattling”
Does that sound like you? It's not always easy to talk about the important stuff. In fact, it can be damn scary at times. The idea of all those trunks and safes springing open and releasing the demons, the memories, the toxic thoughts could turn most people to stone quicker than a stolen glance at the great Gorgon, Medusa.
Childhood was when you probably first set up this unholy zoo of caged fears. And as you rambled through life you collected a few more characters to cage. School certainly offered up a couple. How about your career and family? Think you might have a demon or two adopted from those relationships?

Answer me this; how...

Who is really being served in this "victim-rescuer" relationship. Sure, there is a pay off for both parties but at what cost? One stays small and the other martyrs. This can happen in the workplace, not just families & friends. #coaching #workplace #relationship #change #executive coaching
If this is showing up in your life, and you want to change it - you may want some support in designing a way forward. Coaching can help
Transformers aren't just fictional characters. They are all of us. Some transformations are physical. (currently I am going through a bit of a shoulder rebuild). These external changes are interesting. Your physical transformation may be by design as in starting a great exercise regimen. Or it may be physical where your body is responding to absence of exercise or healthy diet.
The real glory is in the internal transformations. Deconstructing your values and beliefs, testing if appropriate and then making the transformations to better serve you- this is the movie you can write, direct and start in.
I recently spoke with a client who believed she was too young for her recent promotion. Although senior management desired her freshness and creativity from this new perspective, her belief was that she lacked the experience of those she managed. Rather than set about with innovative thinking - she went the opposite direction and tried to frame her views and ideas to those already...
