Twenty twenty is going to be a big year. At least, you hope so. Whether it’s a promotion, new job, or other exciting opportunity, you want to be ready to successfully grab that brass ring — your brass ring — so that 2020 is, in fact, a great year for you. You don’t want to blow it, but are you ready to make the necessary impression, or will nerves derail your success?
For the Leader in You
Are you tired of struggling with how to be direct without being called a J-E-R-K? Or perhaps you don’t struggle, but you’ve been told you need to tone it down? Or—and this is quite possibly the worst for you—you don’t give feedback so that you can avoid the intense discomfort? Whichever applies to you, the bottom line is: all you want is to be able to communicate your message without drama, discord, or defensiveness.
Have you ever wondered why some teams just rock? It’s not just that they have fun, but they surmount every problem with a sense of ease and excitement. And everyone is a valued member of the team. And, face it, you’re envious.
Many entrepreneurs and managers are frustrated because their staff members don’t get the job done with a high degree of excellence and attention to detail. And they worry that little things like typos, and big things like not getting back to clients quickly enough, will cost them their reputation and clients or promotions. Does this sound familiar?
Are you tired of work feeling like a four-letter word? Everybody says that you’ll enjoy your work and be more successful if you maximize your strengths, but how do you do that? You have a job that seems to offer no opportunity at best, and feels dead-end at worst.
Are the holidays adding to your stress? All the extra commitments—friends, family, and colleagues all seem to want more from you. I guess that’s good, but how do you actually enjoy all of this “fun” without losing your mind?
Do you go to events—internal or external—and struggle to get the conversation off to a great start? Are you tired of answering the ubiquitous “how are you doing?” with an even more ubiquitous (read: boring) “busy,” “not much,” or “same old stuff”? Don’t squander the opportunity to make an impression!
Have you noticed how some people—some leaders—are uber confident? Nothing seems to faze them and they always seem calm. They handle stressful situations with equanimity and never seem out of control. The question is: how do you step up your confidence to be like them?
Everybody says you have to build a professional brand and reputation to succeed. But how do you distinguish yourself and be remembered when everyone else has the same goals? And you’re busy and not only want to network “the right way” and create an attention-getting resume, but you also want to get results for your efforts. You want to attract the right opportunities for you!
Have you noticed how some people—some leaders—are always high performers? They never break a sweat and nothing seems to faze them. They handle stressful situations with equanimity and never seem out-of-control. They are more resilient and less reactive. The question is: how do you amp up your performance?
