How To Be A Success At Everything

How To Be A Success At Everything | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Over my 35 years of providing speaking coaching to business executives, I’ve taught an extremely simple process for dealing with challenging questions that I call the ABC approach. What’s great about my approach is that it helps you manage the pausing, panicking, and jumbled thoughts you experience in the face of a tough question. By implementing ABC, you will be able to deliver a strong, coherent answer with ease and impact.

So, how exactly does it work?

1. Align

Alignment has two parts: First, you have to recognize what the questioner has said, and then you have to explain why you feel her perspective has merit. Begin with “I understand…” and briefly repeat her concern, letting her know you are hearing her.

Best Advice I Ever Got: Have the Courage to Follow Your Vision

Best Advice I Ever Got: Have the Courage to Follow Your Vision | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

I attribute much of our success to three pieces of advice that have become our guiding principles:


1. Ask, "How much do I really want it?"


My high school crew coach told me that success only depends on one thing: how much you really want it. The difference between winning and losing, he would say, is nothing more than deciding that you want to win.

 

This advice has had a huge impact on my life and career. Every time I've dreamt up a new idea or venture, my coach's words have come to mind: How much do you really want this?

 

Asking yourself this question forces you to pause and evaluate the situation honestly. Do you have a true passion for it? Are you ready to do whatever it takes to make it work? Taking a genuine look at how much something matters to you will help you weed out certain projects and make time for the ones that truly captivate you.

You're the captain of your own ship, so at the end of the day, you must trust yourself to do what's right.

Why Your Life Needs A Mission Statement

Why Your Life Needs A Mission Statement | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Forming a personal mission statement means identifying your purpose. While this may sound like too profound a question on par with the meaning of life Rimm says asking “what am I here to do?” isn’t as challenging as it seems. Here, she walks us through what it takes to make a personal mission statement


Fantasize about your perfect day or week


What do you need to have in a day to make it joyful? For Rimm, a joyful life meant connecting with people on a daily basis and doing something that made a valuable contribution to someone else’s life. Make a list of all the things you need in your day to make it joyful. Perhaps it’s as simple as spending time outdoors every day or seeing your kids off to school. “It’s not picturing yourself on a beach with a pina colada, but what you need to make your life meaningful to you,” says Rimm.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

We’d all love to say we wake up in the morning feeling exhilarated joyful even and move through the day with purpose and intention, but the reality is most of us spend the larger part of our day going through the motions, feeling exhausted and wondering what the point of it all is.

How to Get Everything You Want. Seriously

How to Get Everything You Want. Seriously | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Getting what you want in your career and in life isn't as difficult as it may seem.


Listen First and Never Stop Listening
Listening is the single-most important skill in professional and personal relationships. Ernest Hemingway said, "When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen." It's sad, but true: Most people have their own agenda and are too busy talking (or waiting to talk) to listen to you. So here's the paradox: If you, unlike most people, can truly listen with empathy, then people will like you--and eventually help you get what you want.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

You'd like to be successful in everything you do, of course. Here's how to make it happen.

3 Ways Responsive Leaders Learn to Lead Themselves

3 Ways Responsive Leaders Learn to Lead Themselves | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

While many leaders rely on proven past methods (often learned in B-school), others are taking new approaches that help them transcend what they already know. These fresh methods help them handle the day-to-day, while becoming responsive to other things that matter.


One of these “new” methods is a coaching approach that has been used with individuals, now making its way into the C-suite.


“The ‘coach approach’ asks leaders to define who they want to be at this moment and in the future,” says Jennifer Antolak, president of Learning Journeys, a life coaching academy. “And it’s about helping others understand that we support their choices.”

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

It's easy to lead others. But when today's business climate includes untimely squalls and unpredictable tsunamis, it's difficult to know how to lead yourself.

6 Things Managers Could Stand To Learn From Coaches

6 Things Managers Could Stand To Learn From Coaches | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

You must help your employee create the shifts in their beliefs and actions that will result in the achievement of desired results. Coaching is a partnership between the coach and the employee, where the main goal is to help the employee develop and contribute to the business.

A Philosophy of Coaching

Great managers have the ability to drive uncommonly successful results for their organization by coaching their people. Coaching is based on the premise that, with help, people can ignite their own potential and achieve or even accelerate their results by discovering solutions for themselves. Coaches help people identify their individual aspirations for change, desired results, and solutions and then match those goals with the needs of the business.

Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor's insight:

In order to be a great manager, you need to be an effective coach with the ability to ask powerful questions, listen actively, and offer observations.

How to Be a Better Coach, According to Neuroscience | Business Brainpower with the Human Touch | Scoop.it

Sure, running a business is about maximizing the bottom line, but few entrepreneurs care only about the dollars and cents. For most, going into work every day is also about making the world a slightly better place and helping your team get better at what they do.

In other words, most business owners aspire to be not just managers but coaches.

How do you learn to be a great coach?
