Here at the-Coaching Blog-run by Gerard O’Donovan, our aim is to constantly bring value to those seeking to improve their lives. Therefore we have a policy of publishing articles and materials by guest authors whom we value and appreciate. Today’s guest author is Kasia Wezowski (Belgium).
Did you ever ask your employees, “Does your work measure up to your passions? Does your work inspire you? Do you get support from your boss, which can positively motivate you? Is your motivation caused by financial rewards or other external factors, or rather do you wake up every day in the morning with joy that you’re going to work? How effectively are you spending your working day? How much of what you do makes you happy?”
These would be some of the very first questions a good Executive Coach would ask his employees if he would like to improve their effectiveness and inspire them to give more of themselves. That’s why we are also producing the world’s first full feature documentary about coaching: to show how coaching benefits productivity in companies.
The number of thoughts that cross our minds daily are around 60,000, and 95% of them are the same every day. Have you ever wondered how many of these thoughts work for you positively and stimulate a positive mood, and how many upset you? Now think about how these thoughts affect your work. How often do you increase the level of stress that you experience?
Coaching can help to change the way you perceive the reality. Normally we give value to events that happen to us, but what has value to us doesn’t need to have value to another person. The emotional associations with certain situations depend on our state of mind. Actually the nature of the events themselves is neutral, and it is we who give them their emotional significance. Waiting in a queue, getting stuck in traffic jams, or receiving new papers on your desk just before you were finishing your workday simply is what it is. You don’t need to get emotional about that because it would not change anything. Coming up with these things calmly, we can make up a lot of creative solutions, remedies or find out how more effectively we can use that time. Most of us, however, experience such situations very negatively, which worsens our mood even further. If the negative reaction is maintained every day, at the end we are in emotional exhaustion. In addition, there are negative emotions and stresses of other people at your work that also influence you and the atmosphere is getting even worse.
Must work be such a tiresome tedious occupation? In fact, much more than you think depends on your approach. Our mind creates our reality. Our thoughts and our emotions affect the image of the world that we see and how we respond to our projections. With the help of a good coach you can transform very negative work circumstances into opportunities to grow.
Once I coached departments of an organization whose chief sales director was sending e-mails every day with red marked sentences about what is still lacking to achieve the desired “on top” results. These sentences were also accompanied by exclamation points. There was always something to catch up with so as not to be left behind, because then you had to reckon with the negative financial consequences, and the opinion of the worst department. How does this kind of fear influence managers? They did everything they could to catch up, but they did not have the time and inclination to go out there and do something new, something that would help to find a whole new source of customers or to discover a new, more effective strategy. These managers were acting on the lowest resistance line just to survive and keep their salaries, bonuses, company cars, cell phones and laptop computers. They did not do anything more. Their actions were well below their capabilities.
As we have concluded, fear paralyses the way you respond and blocks creative thinking. What is more, it’s also not conducive to showcasing your abilities in front of superiors and that’s the reason why you may be considered as less competent than you actually are, due to your less confident behaviour. Note that there is usually a game taking place in companies of who can be easily intimidated, and people who give in to fear are more disrespected and less frequently have opportunities for advancement. In fact, what is really admirable is someone who is able to put up and keep their own opinions. Paradoxically, this person is also more appreciated by their superiors. What can be also a crucial tip for you is that when you change your attitude, it’s important that your new attitude stems more from the change of inner well-being than from the ability to control fear and play the role of a tough person. Playing someone other than who you really are and blocking your true feelings will be damaging to your health.
Repeat this relaxation on a regular basis until you notice changes in your life.
First of all, start by changing relationships with people. Discover personal stories of your employees. Start to ask how they feel, what are their challenges, what they want to achieve. Tell them a little bit about yourself too, why the work you do is so important for you and how did you find yourself in the place where you are. Motivate them with your personal story. Whatever you tell them, I’m sure they will experience a lot of sympathy towards you, and then they will more readily perform your instructions. This way, instead of fear, there will appear confidence and joy in your organisation and the feeling that you’re a part of one team that together sails in one boat across the ocean. You will be amased at how your staff will start throwing ideas, becoming more creative and motivated, and even sometimes want willingly to stay after hours to complete an inspiring project. This is an example of changing the culture of fear into the culture of trust and mutual inspiration.
Exercise on changing the perspective:
Imagine that you come from a very successful long holiday where you rested very well and you don’t come back to the stressed team that immediately infects you with its negative energy, but that everybody in your company sees the world from the perspective of long summer holidays. They are rested, have a lot of enthusiasm and inspiration. Imagine further how would the communication run at the company in such an atmosphere, and how many new things could be possible to achieve if all the people regained use of their full potential.
