When you find yourself feeling sensitive or getting upset with someone's behaviour , it is safe to assume that one of our "buttons" has been pushed.
At this point it is good to remind yourself that you cannot control how other people behave, but you CAN control how you react.
Feeling affected by what other people do or say happens to everybody. Getting upset or bothered by it drains your energy. This is a fairly normal human reaction. It is difficult not to react when something has triggered an emotional reaction in you - pushed one of your buttons.
In the very moment when you are feeling triggered attempt to acknowledge and accept that your peace of mind has been disturbed. Then focus your efforts on returning to a better frame of mind before you do anything / say something you might regret.
Always remember that your Number One Goal is to regain clarity of mind. The negative feelings or emotions that surface will pass like a wave, if you will allow them to move through.

Widely acknowledged as a powerful development tool, coaching is used by an increasing number of organisations to develop the talent they need to meet their business strategy. Yet whilst phrases like coaching culture and leader as coach have entered common business language and the awareness of the benefits coaching can bring to business performance has grown, so too have the myths surrounding it.
Here we debunk five of the most common coaching myths we come across.
Myth 1: Coaching only suits, and is given to, very senior executives.
The reality: In a survey by Sherpa, just 30% of organisations reported they used coaching only for senior executives. Coaching can help with a number of business challenges; developing high potentials, supporting individuals who have been promoted into bigger roles, helping managers lead their team through change effectively, developing resiliency, accelerating the pace at which maternity leave returners get back up to speed, equipping first time managers with the skills to be effective leaders. As none of these business challenges are experienced only by those at the C-suite level, reserving coaching only for a select senior group is somewhat limiting. While the content may be different, all levels of employee, certainly all managers and leaders in an organisation, can benefit from a coaching approach to management.

As Henry Ford so wisely stated: "If you think you can, or cannot - either way you are right".
In other words if you think and therefore believe something to be true, then it is your truth.
If you are not quite 'the person you want to be', then it pays off to find out if it is a thought (belief) holding you back.
The thought could be anything from 'I do not know how', 'I do not have any support', 'I do not know where to start', 'I am uncertain about this,' etc. ... Click 'Read More' below
