Have you been trying to be more confident or assertive at work? Or have you been wanting to block out more time for strategic thinking? Or maybe you’ve really tried to delegate more to free up your calendar a bit?
…But despite the effort and the commitment, it’s been harder to change that behavior than you thought it would?
If you can relate then read on.
And please bear in mind, changing behaviors is not just about getting rid of some “weaknesses” or bad habits. Changing behaviors is something we all have to do on an ongoing basis if we want to grow as leaders in our careers.
Our careers only grow to the extent that we grow. And change is an inherent part of growth.
But change is uncomfortable by design. Our minds want to keep us safe and what kept you alive so far is likely what’s going to keep you alive going forward. Change, on the other hand, is uncertain and risky.
Plus, on top of that, our minds love patterns as these repeated behaviors (i.e. habits) or repeated thoughts (i.e. beliefs) help our minds navigate and regulate our bodies more efficiently.
But despite it being hard to change behaviors, it is always within your possibility to do so. Based on my experience, all we need to make it happen is clarity, self-leadership, self-compassion, and support.
In this week’s episode of The Manager Track podcast, I’m inviting Simon Vetter, an expert on behavioral change and seasoned Executive Coach, to a conversation about how to change our own behaviors and how to help others, specifically our direct reports, develop stronger behaviors.
Simon shares numerous great examples, insights, and tools that you don’t want to miss.
If you want to be a great leader, then this is a must-have in your management toolkit.
