Courageous Conversations


Having courageous conversations ranks in the top 3 coaching areas I come across when I work with people.
Let a process take the strain… we spend a disproportional amount of time worrying about them compared to carrying them out!

Behaviour, Motivation, Sparkling Moments and other stuff

Behaviour is the tip of the iceberg. What drives it lies beneath – how we feel and what we believe. Unfortunately, while we may think we can control the way we feel external factors tend to take control.
However, it is your mind… you can take back the control!

Shadow of the Leader


If people are looking to you for direction or inspiration then there is a good chance you are a Leader.
It doesn’t have to be in a business environment… you could be a school football coach, a community head, a business manager or a parent….you are probably a Leader… and therefore you cast a Leadership Shadow.

What’s yours like!!

Resilience


The world at the moment is as mad as a box of frogs!
Cases of depression & stress are going through the roof.
When you have strong resilience you can cope with stress and adversity… you can bounce back. The world can change as much as it wants…. you’ve got a giant space-hopper!
When it’s low ……the inevitable speed of change wears and tears you down.
Keeping your resilience charged and topped up is essential for a bright and happy future… it’s free, just like air used to be in a garage!

Managing your boss


Probably the most important relationship you have is …
… the one you have with your boss.

The number one reason why people leave their job is not down to money, it’s down to their relationship with…

..the boss ..the big cheese…the head honcho

In that case it might be worth having a strategy!!!

Planting a solution in someone’s head

A really useful technique for the following scenarios:

When you think your ideas might meet resistance

When you are not sure or confident on how your ideas will land

When the solution for someone else’s problem is so obvious… but still they can’t see it!!

Have fun

Difficult Conversations

They are called difficult conversations for a reason!

In my experience very few people like to have them,  and very few of them seem to go well.

A true lose/lose.

Sometimes you have to tell them how it is, however on many occasions you can get them to tell you how it is…. give themselves a good talking to!

Guided Relaxation

Guided Relaxation

When you relax your body, you relax your mind. When you relax your mind you tap into the power of the sub conscious.
Sometimes in order to achieve more you have to do less!
Sometimes it’s just good to step off the world and …. let go

Coping with this mad world

Coping with this mad world

The world is nuts (technical term!!) at the moment…. and it’s not likely to change.

If you find yourself going around the hamster wheel like a loon.. step off and do something different.

Sometimes we forget who we are and what we are trying to do… you need a little peace… to piece it back together!

Team Dynamics

Team Dynamics

Do you have a team that does not always play to win? Do you feel more like a referee in a fighting ring, some days than a manager?

Don’t worry if you do, the good news is that people are not designed to work in team. Think ‘survival of the fittest’ we have a natural instinct to be competitive in order to survive…so it is completely normal for things to kick off a little!!

At Think, we believe that, whilst rivalry and competitiveness is healthy, you should never excel at another persons loss or expense. To help you unite your team to work together to achieve common goals why not try our Team Skills course.

To understand behaviour, look beneath the tip of the iceberg.

Have you ever asked yourself what drives human behaviour? Why people sometimes act in ways that you find difficult to understand?

Imagine an iceberg. The tip is above water – you can see this. The majority of the iceberg is under the water – hidden from view.

A person’s behaviour is like the tip of the iceberg – the part you can see. What drives that behaviour lies underneath the surface. Venture below surface level and you’ll discover the values, beliefs, experiences and thoughts that drive a person’s behaviour.

Listen to the podcast to find out more.

If you’d like to better understand and influence the behaviour of the people in your team, a good place to start is with some Myers Briggs or Influencing Skills training.

Effective Communication

There have been many studies on how non-verbal behaviour (body language such as facial expressions, gestures etc) impact communication.

Back in the 1950s, Dr Ray Birdwhistell was one of the first to suggest that no more than 30% to 35% of the social meaning of a conversation or an interaction is carried by words. (There were others before him but Dr B has by far the coolest name, so we like him best).

Today, there is a strong school of thought that, when we communicate, people pay attention to our words and actions as follows:

Communication exercise – great icebreaker

Words, by their nature, are ambiguous. Why? Because we each give different words meaning – depending on our own experiences, beliefs, values, thoughts and ideas.

This video demonstrates this through a simple ‘ice breaker’ training exercise on…sex!

Take a look and you’ll see what we mean. No giggling like school kids now. This is a serious and highly scientific lesson in Communication Skills. Oh, ok then, it’s just a bit of fun…

But seriously…if we cannot agree on the meaning of a universally acknowledged, simple little word like ‘sex’, what hope do we have of ever being properly understood?

If you want to improve the clarity and impact of your communication, take a look at our Communication Skills courses or Contact Us to talk through what you need.

P.S. We run this exercise a lot and ‘love’ doesn’t come up too much. Shame on everyone. And whoever said ‘Zygot’ in a recent session – well that’s just weird.

Coaching

Being an effective coach can have an astonishing impact on the people you work with. Trust me, the personal rewards you get are out of this world and the business benefits can be far reaching.

Listen to the podcast for tips on:

  • Questioning & listening techniques
  • Types of coaching question to ask

You cannot hope to influence a change in someone’s behaviour until they understand:

  • Where they are now
  • Where they want or need to get to
  • What is holding them back
  • What choices and options they have to move forward

If you’d like to know more about how to influence staff behaviour, check out our Influencing Skills courses, Executive Coaching or Contact Us and tell us what you need.

Which way do you eat your banana?

Apparently, as a human being, you have 60,000 thoughts a day; 90% are the same ones you had yesterday, and the day before, and the day before.

We tend to live out our lives ticking to an habitual beat. Sometimes you just need to ask yourself “which way do i eat my banana?”
