Become a Student of your Strengths
Updated: Nov 8, 2020
Discovering Resiliency in Uncontrollable Times
2020 ushered unprecedented changes into our lives--especially our work lives. Since February, the great majority of people's work lives have been turned upside down, inside out, and tossed into a new normal that continues to evolve.
"We are, or will be, going through the most radical transformation the world has ever seen; people are justly terrified, excited, depressed, heartbroken and hopeful, all at once." - Heather Marsh, philosopher | human rights activist
The waves of change keep coming calling us to discover a new level of resiliency. At the core of building resiliency is self-awareness.
Through self-awareness, we can develop our resiliency to face the unknown. We can move through each day with peace of mind despite knowing more change is coming.
Socrates said, "An unexamined life not worth living.“ It's true. To live unaware limits us, diminishes our true nature. There is nothing more empowering than being self-aware. Having a clear and present understanding of what drives you to choose one opportunity over another, what you value, and what inspires you, what projects make you lose track of time, and why, uplifts us and the people around us.
You start by becoming a student of your strengths.
When you embrace your strengths DNA and get skilled at applying your strengths, change becomes something you simply move through and past with ease.
Core Momentum Group's StrengthsCORE™ Mastery program celebrates your unique set of strengths. Together we work to expand your self-understanding, get clear on the worklife experience that makes you pop from bed on a Monday morning with anticipation, and puts you on a path of purpose, meaning, and fulfillment.
While we dive into discovering and applying your Strengths (via the CliftonStrengths Assessment), Gallup Certified Strengths Coach Kristina Mercier guides you through a journey of self-discovery where we do the following:
Reimagine your work life
Ferris Bueller got it right when he said, "Life Moves Pretty Fast. If You Don't Stop And Look Around Once In A While, You Could Miss It." It might sound contradictory, but with so much change happening, now is an optimal time to reimagine your ideal worklife. CoachingTool: Envisioning the Ideal Worklife
Redefine work success vs. work fulfillment
Success and fulfillment are two different experiences that sometimes go together but not always. What is at the core of both concepts is our values. We get very clear on what you value, why, and how to create the environment to consistently experience them. Coaching Tool: Taking a Values Trip
Recreate communication strategies
How we listen and communicate with ourselves and others is critical to our overall worklife happiness. We begin learning to listen deeper and then develop our most optimal way of leading, sharing, and appreciating. Coaching Tool: Customized based on needs
BONUS--Learn The Big Belly Breath!
Most people rarely breathe deep enough to get the benefits of this life-giving automatic response. One of the most significant benefits of diaphragmatic breathing is reducing stress and increasing resiliency. But there's more! It lowers the heart rate, blood pressure, and resets your parasympathetic nervous system away from the fight, flight, or flee options. Breathe deep, work mindfully, live well.
Get to the core and gain momentum to bring out the best of yourself. The world needs us all to step and share our gifts. No time to waste! If this got you thinking (and feeling something good), schedule a Discovery Call with Kristina today!
