Are Clients Self-Protective Behaviors Getting in the Way?

I often hear coaches, consultants or psychotherapists speak about clients out of frustration because they can't get their clients to change their behavior. While they try different approaches, tools and techniques, ultimately they can decide that their clients “Just aren’t ready.” “They didn’t want to change badly enough.” Or they conclude that they are “too narcissistic, too controlling or too arrogant” to change.

Eliminate Organizational Dysfunction

Changing the Brain of Your Organization

Dysfunction - the abnormal or impaired functioning of an individual, team or organization relative to established norms, tends to be rampant even in the best organizations. Once it takes root and dysfunctional behavior is tolerated, it can infect the work place, showing itself symptomatically through a lack of employee engagement, substandard performance, attitude of entitlement and ineffective leadership.

Leveraging Your Training and Development Program

We have found that the biggest barriers to the implementation of new learning’s from training and development programs are uniquely human, having nothing to do with the quality of the programs or learning institutions – although we do love to blame them! Despite the millions of dollars organizations spend every year to either change behavior or to develop new leadership or interpersonal skills, behavior often stays the same.

Are There ‘Elephants’ in Your Organization?

How fear gets in the way of achieving potential
 

There’s an elephant in the room.
It is large and squatting
So it is hard to get around.

We talk about everything else –
Except the elephant in the room.
We all know it is there.

Fantastic Opportunity for Qualified Professionals using the MBTI™ or Jungian Based Assessments

There comes a time in the growth of every business, where you are ready to expand to the next level and are no longer able to do all of the work yourself. This is a welcome and exciting transition and a milestone that we have currently reached with the Striving Styles Personality System.  We find ourselves stretched to the limit, needing to find colleagues to help us with the delivery of our products and services to clients.

Mental Attitude Contributes to Career Success

I think we are going to continue to see those people who use more than their skills and degrees gain traction in the workplace while those who show up with a sense of entitlement and absence of empathy will not achieve what they believe they should. People like Dale Carnegie began writing about the importance of “social intelligence” in his book How to Win Friends and Influence People in the 1950’s. Daniel Goleman has spearheaded the Emotional Intelligence movement and with his colleagues is demonstrating how our brains are wired to connect.

The Value of Leadership using Your Whole Brain

Every so often, we see a larger-than-life example of what happens when someone is not working from their whole brain and without knowledge of their Striving Style. Such is the case with Oprah’s OWN network and the current challenges the network, as well as Oprah herself as a leader, are experiencing. Rumors about how the network is failing to thrive and speculation about what Oprah hasn’t done and should be doing seem to be everywhere. However, few comments that I have seen have analyzed the impact of her personality and leadership style on her current state of affairs.

Closing the Knowing Doing Gap

Collectively, we love to learn about how to improve and develop ourselves. We watch shows, read books, and take courses because we want to learn how to change our behavior. There has never been a time in society when we have had more information about what it takes to maintain a healthy body, have effective relationships and be an influential, effective leader.

The Performer Striving Style - Oprah Winfrey

I will be writing a series of blogs about each of the Striving Styles with examples of famous people to illustrate the Style.  This will give you the opportunity to see how the drive to meet our predominant need plays out in the lives of these people. It will include what happens when they are self-actualizing and when they go into their self-protective mode. I will also provide some general information about the Style.
