Being your best  (old format).gif
Brain awareness and mind management are essential 

We all... Do our best - given how we see (ie perceive) the situation, and what situations we've seen before. However, we tend to assume our perception is a fixed reality - which it clearly isn't.   

The best performers...  Deliberately manage their perception to also manage their response. They use brain awareness and active mind management skills to learn from new experiences. You need to develop these same learning meta skills, especially when you face new, challenging or uncomfortable contexts - also when working with a coach can be most helpful. 

The best leaders... Intentionally create system conditions that enable themselves, and those around them, to keep a learning (growth) mindset. They keep emotions positive because they know that both awareness and  self-management are adversely affected by negative emotions; They consciously choose to bring their authentic "best self" to work, in order to improve their personal presence, business relationships and organisational (ie systemic) influence and impact. 

The best coaches... Support "change from the inside out". They create the right conditions by bringing their full presence, their positive energy, and their own lived experiences in business, leadership and personal learning - all of which can help you build your own learning meta skills.
