I recently challenged an article about mindfulness, “The mindfulness Conspiracy”: (https://bit.ly/3gr8AGs). After careful thought, while there might be some merit in considering the risks of mindfulness being exploited by greedy corporations, it’s equally important, if not more, to recognise where the power of mindfulness truly lies.
Last week, we shared 3 types of stuckness and 3 common reasons for feeling stuck. Wonder how to get unstuck? In this article, we will share 3 tips on getting unstuck.
The recent incident in the Suez Canal reminded me that a significant part of our value as coaches is in helping our clients get unstuck. Let’s be real, we all have experiences of being personally stuck in life and we are likely to be stuck again at some time in the future. It is likely that this experience is way more common than we realise and we may be stuck without even being consciously aware of it. At times we’re simply having a vague feeling of discomfort but sometimes we experience a major EverGreen level episode.
Have you ever felt like there is a fight going on in your mind? Rest assured, this is a common experience. According to Timothy Gallwey, we all have at least two opposite voices within us, you can imagine them as two selves – Self 1 and Self 2.
Are you being too empathetic to your team? Did you know that being too empathetic to others can make you feel worse and be perceived as less effective by others? Controversial? Not as counter intuitive as you think.
My experience taught me that doing anything new in organisations require a planned change management intervention. This applies to Mental Health and Wellbeing initiatives (MH&WB) as much as any other business strategy. Although complex in implementation, three simple principles can be applied to get the change process going.
I wrote a post yesterday (21 October) about a workshop to help those who recently lost their jobs to process the experience. One of the things we’ll address in that workshop is the need to ask for help, to speak about the emotions and to seek social support. To do that, we need friends and partners who are willing and able to support us through the process of grief. Most of us are willing to support our friends, but we may not have the skills. And we may inadvertently do more harm than good.
I’ve recently been asked to design a workshop on lifelong learning (LL). Easy peasy, I thought. We’ll define LL, find a little survey to explore the dimensions of LL and we’re off to a running start. Well, I was wrong on both counts.
