In this article, I'm going to continue on the topic of communication and talk about a simple framework you can use to give and receive feedback.  I find that having a framework helps because most people don’t love giving or receiving feedback.

The Impact Your Mindset Has on Other’s Performance

In the last two articles, I have talked about the importance of mindset.  The first one focused on the importance that mindset had on your performance and I discussed the difference between a growth mindset and fixed mindset.  Then, I provided some simple strategies that you can use to start developing a growth mindset.  This [...]

Strategies for Developing a Growth Mindset

In this post, I'm going to talk about how you build and develop a growth mindset.  It starts with being self-aware.  Self-awareness is step one to any performance improvement.  If we’re not paying attention to our internal self-talk and the words we are telling ourselves, we won’t recognize our belief systems that can potentially hinder [...]

Why Mindset is Critical for Peak Performance

If self-awareness is the first foundational skill for peak performance, than mindset is the second most important.  I’m sure many of you have heard the term mindset before as it has been in the media a lot and is very “on trend”.  Any time I give a workshop on mindset and I ask the participants [...]

The Importance of Being Process Focused

In my previous post I introduced a very basic explanation as to what drives our behavior.  This was meant to be a simple explanation because I have found that it is very easy to over-complicate something to the point of inaction.  Somewhere we get caught up in the minutiae and we don’t take action.  My [...]
