Twenty nineteen is all about getting to the next level. It about taking, getting, and making the most of opportunities, whether it’s a promotion, new job, or other exciting opportunity. The question is, how do you attract the best opportunities for you?
Twenty nineteen 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 2019 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?
Have you noticed how some people – some leaders – are always seem well rested even though you know they work harder than most? 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. Since caffeine can’t solve all problems, the real question is: how do you improve your ability to renew?
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?
I was recently invited to speak at an event focused on Women in Science at a session entitled: “Let the Women Speak.” Unfortunately, women don’t speak in public enough.
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?
Have you noticed how some leaders have an amazing rapport with their team members? Actually, it’s more than that: team members happily to go the extra mile all the time! And all you can think is, “how do I do that?”
You are great at what you do! So great, in fact, that you’ve been promoted to manage your former peers (the subject of an upcoming blog post). There’s just one problem: You are overwhelmed because you are doing your old job in addition to managing others. And, you are concerned because, if being truly honest with yourself, you realize that you are the bottleneck and actually getting in the way. Where are those additional hours in the day?! How will you learn the necessary management skills?!
Maybe you are fed up with your colleague – he’s so rude! Or maybe you’re tired of dealing with Mr. or Ms. Sensitive. Either way, my bet is that you’re frustrated and wondering not just what’s wrong with your colleague, but what to do about it.
Twenty eighteen is all about getting the job or promotion you want. You’ve identified one, two or maybe even three jobs that would be a step up for you or that you are confident you can succeed at, if given the chance. But how do you get that chance?
