Position Yourself for Success
Position yourself for success by increasing your self-awareness, a 21st century must have skill. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, individuals will hold 12-15 jobs in a lifetime. In order to do this successfully, you need to know yourself and know how others see you.
Some of the key elements to be aware of are your personality, your emotional intelligence, and how you manage your brain energy. Likewise, its equally important to know your value proposition or personal brand. In a busy world, you need to be able to present yourself clearly and consistently.
I am a certified coach and consultant that specializes in defining your strengths and accounting for your blind spots. I am also an MBTI Master Practitioner with a subspecialty in interpreting the MBTI Step III, a highly personalized roadmap in personality development. Emotional intelligence is the piece that rounds out how we use our our personality. Can we read a situation and react appropriately?
It’s also important to understand how the brain works so you can bring your best possible game to every situation. I have studied the brain for over 35 years, first as a speech pathologist and now as an International Coaching Federation (ICF) certified coach. My hands-on experience applying the principles of brain science helps motivate clients to reach higher by getting to know their most important asset more intimately.
Discovering your unique value to a customer or employer and consistently bringing your best self to the table, will result in more quality opportunities that will not only make you stand out, it will energize and engage you as well. Knowing your personal brand or receiving 360 feedback will help you achieve this.
Build a Strong and Cohesive Team
Self-awareness is other-awareness. When we take the time to appraise ourselves, we are really making ourselves easier to work and live with. However, according to the Harvard Business Review (October 2015), we really are not very self-aware, especially at work. I offer engaging workshops and team building sessions that will help participants become intra- and interpersonally aware, leading to improved effectiveness as a team.
My tool kit
I use the MBTI Steps I, II, and III to help you understand your unique personality. I offer the EQi and the EQi 360 to uncover additional personal insights by revealing how your emotional intelligence affects your work, motivation, communication, and relationships. I am also a certified 360Reach brand consultant who can help you know yourself from the perspective of others. Read more about these and learn about the other tools I have in my arsenal.
You may notice that the brain is a hot topic in the news. That’s because significant findings are discovered almost every day. It’s important to keep up with this so I regularly attend conferences and read whatever I can to stay current with the newest findings. Please feel free to visit my Blog, where I write about what I’m seeing, hearing, and learning.
