The conventional wisdom says that performance comes down to how employees are rated and paid. But the science suggests that it’s really a matter of the quality of conversations being had.
That’s because conversation is the linchpin of performance, connecting everything from goal setting to everyday feedback to career conversations, from talent strategy down to manager capability.
The Neuroscience of Growth Mindset
Embracing and adapting to change is essential for all successful people to be successful in their career. The human brain has evolved to prefer what is predictable and familiar, in order to keep us safe from harm. Because of this when too much change is going on, the brains extensive threat detecting network is activated inducing a stress response and over time you become less focused, less able to retain ideas in your mind, learn new things or find solutions to problems. Neuroscientific research shows that it’s possible to see change not as a threat but as a challenge. In response to challenge, your ability to focus actually increases. You can think more deeply, encode new knowledge and find new solutions; and the key to seeing change as a challenge rather than a threat is GROWTH MINDSET. Leaders cannot only adopt a growth mindset for themselves but can support growth mindset on their teams through feedback and role modeling.
Through my unique 90 Day Total Transformation program, you will learn the three key habits to developing a growth mindset and be confident enough to then lead with confidence and clarity. You will learn how to be POSITIVE, FLEXIBLE and ENGAGED in the face of change.
With just a change in mindset, you can become more engaged, more primed to spot opportunities, and more resilient in the face of uncertain or changing corporate environments.
If you are looking for support in shaping your career or transitioning to a new job, I will help you move forward with clarity, focus and success; utilizing the most cutting edge and highly effective coaching modality, called Neural Re-Wiring.
As a career coach and cognitive neuro-psychologist, I understand that feeling dissatisfied, undermined or underutilized at work has a negative impact on your overall wellbeing. It’s frustrating to see how work-related problems can take up so much of your mind space, even when you’re out of the office.
During our one-on-one sessions, we will explore why you are unhappy at work, recognize changes that need to happen and develop actionable strategies.
You’ll not only view your career and job differently, but also other important aspects of your life. Knowledge of oneself leads to informed decisions and recognition of the right opportunities. That clarity and focus will help you in all areas of your life.
Many of my clients objectives are to be a more effective leader; to succeed in a new position; to find a new position; grow a business or division; increase clarity and confidence; improve communication; gain a promotion; increase sales; manage a business or team more effectively, even to create an entirely new career path.
