It’s been a long week. You’ve worked hard. Lunch time is here. Rather than slaving away at your desk as you try to avoid crumbs in your key board, invest in yourself.
In April, May and June, Five Rhythms is offering free virtual webinars. Attendees will receive 20% off three months of individual coaching starting April 12th and 15% off group coaching starting in September.
Our most difficult conversations are characterized by our near certainty that we are right and they are wrong. This would be OK if the only opinion that mattered was our own. The challenge is that when we need to lead and collaborate, their opinions and perspectives matter, too. However, it is nearly impossible to get curious about what they are thinking if we are stuck in our own certainty. In this webinar we will learn a simple and time-tested tool to step out of our certainty and into a stance of curiosity where questions flow more easily, shifting the conversation into constructive and collaborative dialogue.
We negotiate every day. At work we negotiate not just our jobs and salaries, but research priorities, budgets, staffing, deliverables and time tables. At home some of us negotiate child care pick up and drop off, who is making dinner and who stays home when the kids are sick. While men and women are equally skilled negotiators, women face some additional challenges. Not only were many of us not raised to advocate for our own interests, but we sometimes pay a social cost when we assert our needs and interests. We’ll dive into what we negotiate, our beliefs around advocating for ourselves, how to mitigate others’ negative perceptions when we assert our interests and two tools for increasing our effectiveness. You will leave with a better understanding of what is getting in your way and what to do about it.
How would our lives change if we were clear about our ‘yeses’ and committed to protecting them with healthy boundaries? Identifying and honoring our deepest values gives our lives meaning. Defining and protecting priorities is essential to leadership. To fully say ‘yes,’ we need to be clear about what those ‘yeses’ are and which are most important. Then we need to protect those ‘yeses’ with healthy boundaries, a ‘no’ that is strong enough for others to respect. Rooted in our ‘yes,’ and strong in a protective ‘no’ provides guidance and ballast to lead in a chaotic world. Here is my ‘yes’ to you: An hour dedicated to uncovering your most important ‘yeses’ and practical strategies for establishing healthy boundaries to protect those ‘yeses’ – both internally and externally. How about it? Do you say ‘yes’ to one hour dedicated to you and what’s most important? See you there!
