Training the GrowthMindset
What is “Competency?
A competency is a cluster of related abilities, knowledge and skills that enable individuals to act effectively in a particular job or position. While coaching competency is considered a complex array of capabilities, it is possible to minimize the complexity to manageable levels for professionals, leaders and employees. Learn how to master coaching competency and apply effective coaching methods to one’s self and others, which requires practice. Once the process has been learned and mastered, multiple coaching arrangements are possible.
Courageousness and Confidence: What’s the Difference?
Courageousness is chosen behavior based on decisions to act in the face of danger or apprehension. Confidence is the positive feeling that results from learning what works and what doesn’t after taking courageous action. Learn how to grow your confidence — up your positive capital or self-efficacy, the belief in oneself that something has a high probability of being successfully accomplished.
Overcoming Resistance to Growth
Growth is difficult and it’s often hard to understand why. On the surface, it would seem that choosing to change, deciding to change, thinking about change and then executing real change would be easy. Most often, it is not. Learn what you can do to create real change and sustain the gains.
Goal Setting That Leads to Goal Attainment
Learn how to attain the essential ingredients for goal-oriented achievement – courageous actions that build the feeling of confidence, continuous practice that solidifies the creation of habits, and the endless expansion of positive behavioral patterns.
Grow or decay . . . and have a nice day.
Growth is difficult yet has positive outcomes. Decay is easy and has negative outcomes. The will to grow by itself is not enough. Success in work, as in life, requires the will to grow intentionally and the application of consistent, disciplined energy to goal-oriented personal innovations which lead to organizational and business innovations. Here's a way for organizations and businesses determined to succeed to acquire a critical mass of employees who have that intention. Are you going to just "do" your job or will you "grow" your job?
While it is tempting to become better and better at a narrow set of skills, the demands of the marketplace may begin to render highly specialized skills obsolete. Learn how to re-invent yourself in the context of organizational needs and market demands.
Encouraging “Creative Power”
When people find themselves in a situation where the challenge is great, but skill level is weak, they experience anxiety. If they find themselves in a situation where their skill level is excellent, yet their challenges are simple, they are likely to experience boredom. Here’s what you can do to enjoy consistent growth.
