Perception - How You Perceive Yourself

A missed promotion prompts a leader to complain to her CEO. The CEO responds by getting her a coach, which results in explorations of authenticity, self-awareness and self-management.

As the words were leaving her mouth, a leader knew they didn’t reflect her true feelings. Later, she talked with her coach and learned seven steps for gaining mastery over runaway emotions.

Self-awareness, like any muscle, can be built through discipline. In this episode, a leader low on self-awareness learns two exercises to help her become aware of her thoughts and feelings.

A disruptive executive, working to shrink his blind spots, must learn to overcome his natural barriers against receiving feedback. His coach lays out two inevitable barriers and possible work-arounds.

A leader, generally pleased with her team, has one direct report who simply rubs her the wrong way. Her coach frames the difference as one of style and gives her a ‘Style Script’ to enhance the relationship.

At the height of the pandemic, with everyone working from home, a leader tells her coach the many positive ways her team has deepened their connections and flourished in remote work.

A people-centered leader is often wounded by people. Her language reveals patterns of thought that lead her down unhealthy paths. She and her coach try to unplug these thinking errors.

Two different leaders each strive to not take things in the workplace personally. But they can’t help it. With their coach, they find ways to build more strength to resist taking things personally.

Although a leader hates watching herself on video, she asks her coach to give her video feedback. The coach eagerly shows her just how powerful a development tool video can be.

A rising star achieves an amazing accomplishment, yet she doesn’t feel deserving of her success. Her coach helps her gain tools to quiet her inner critic that makes her feel like an impostor.
