When have you made some of the worst decisions in your life? This can be committing to something you shouldn't have, or acting out in ways that isn't like your normal behaviour.
We all have those moments when we give into a request and say yes, instead of no. Or say or do something that we wish we hadn't. Then have to sort out the mess the next day, or try to figure out how our schedule will handle this new commitment.
Making decisions is one of the most important skills in our life. One we practice over and over again, starting from the time we're born, and we progressively getting better at strengthening this skill as we mature.
But sometimes we have set backs and make bad decisions that aren't good for us. Most of these regrettable decisions can often be linked to our state of being at that time. We're tired, upset, intoxicated, overly optimistic, stressed, lonely, etc.
When we're in one of these states our awareness is reduced and we're not reflecting...
How do you respond to negative feedback, criticism, and nosy people? Most of us, and most times, we want to tell them where to go. Although, it's a bit tougher when it's your boss, coworker, customer, relative or a friend. So we resort to biting our tongue, ignoring them, or changing the subject.
In this blog, we’ll cover 3 areas of communication that will help you look confident when responding to the uncomfortable or awkward conversations.
We often talk about onboarding our new employees, but have you ever considered using a similar approach to new customers?
Having a system to onboard new customers can increase your business's retention rate, repeat business and referrals. In this blog, let's look at how three steps will improve customer engagement, especially at a boutique type business.
If we consider something that we've tried for the first time, such as getting behind the wheel of a vehicle, there are many things to familiarize ourselves with. The position of the controls, adjustment of the seat, and then the sensitivity of the brakes and gas pedal. But the more we get behind the wheel, the more that the feeling of anxiousness subsides. We feel relaxed and know our way around.
This is the same experience when someone visits your store. At first they don't know what to expect, or where to locate things, but after the second or third time visiting they feel more comfortable and more...
If while in a conversation we struggle with thinking of that right word or phrase, at the right time... or the term of that... "what-do-you-call-it?", this can be very frustrating. But there's a small shift we can make to avoid this awkward moment and have us respond more effectively and intelligently.
In this blog, I'll provide strategies to help us overcome this awkwardness and communicate our worth in front of those we want to impress.
When having a conversation with another, we might be challenged to come up with the right response, and draw a blank. We frantically search our mind for the term, or detail, only to come up empty. That right word is somewhere in the depths of our mind—on the tip of our tongue, but refuses to come out when we want it most. The frustration we feel makes finding those words even worse.
Then finally... after an hour, or even 10 minutes, those thoughts suddenly appear. Unfortunately,...
With the limitations we currently have while in isolation, we often feel like we're relinquishing control. When we begin to try to control other people and their actions, this is a sign that we don't feel in control of our life.
Before this need to control starts to push people away, we need to change the way we think and carry out our actions.
It may feel like we're compromising our freedom—we can't go to social events, we have to maintain social distancing at the grocery store, we can only buy one item at a time, the kids don't have access to the playground... I'm sure there are many other places you've found where you're feeling limited. And every time you turn on the news there are more restrictions.
I want to help you get back in the driver's seat and in control of your life to make this isolation much more positive!
