The Importance of Social Awareness and Practicing Empathy

We can’t always expect to understand what people are thinking or experiencing, but it certainly helps to try. When you’re able to express greater levels of empathy, it cultivates a deeper sense of trust within your team. People are much more likely to engage with those they feel more comfortable with, and it leads to improved teamwork and collaboration.

Aside from that, empathy helps you form more well-rounded business strategies. You can’t expect to have any idea what kind of products or services to provide if you aren’t in touch with the needs of your customers. When you and your employees have a more united understanding of empathy and how to apply it in the workplace, everyone benefits from it.

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program. This program enables teams to maximize both performance and well-being simultaneously by focusing on the root-level muscles that impact both.

Improving Your Relationships Strengthens All Areas of Your Life

We all know how important communication is, so why don’t more people place that same level of importance on relationships? If you want to make a real impact, you need to do more than simply get a message across.

Understanding how to cultivate and maintain relationships within teams is crucial to the success of any business organization. So, it’s important that you give your employees the tools they need to show up as their best selves when they work for you. Improving relationships at work naturally puts people in a better position to succeed in other areas of their lives and often leads to heightened confidence and a stronger sense of self.

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program. In fact, 83% of participants reported improved self-confidence and 85% reported a significant increase in happiness.

How to Achieve Business Success by Harnessing Your Team’s Potential

You’ve probably heard of “self-sabotage” before, but have you ever thought about it in the context of a team or entire organization? If you want your business to succeed, you need to make sure your employees have the necessary tools to mitigate conflict, balance work responsibilities, and manage stress in a healthy way.

The more equipped your team is, the more space you give them to reach their potential. Instead of allowing friction in the workplace, it’s important that you foster a work environment that emphasizes communication, understanding, and teamwork. When everyone’s on the same page and working towards the same goal, there’s no limit to what you can achieve.

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program, where they will learn how to maximize both performance and well-being simultaneously by focusing on the root-level muscles that impact both.

Improved Conflict Management Leads to Better Relationships

No workplace is free of conflict, but it’s how you and your team manage it that matters. Poor conflict management can lead to:

  • Decrease in productivity
  • Low company morale
  • Increase in employee turnover (decrease in employee retention)

On the other hand, when you invest in conflict management education and give your team the right tools, you remove several barriers to productivity. With a well-rounded approach to conflict management, you can expect:

  • Improved team productivity
  • Positive work environment
  • Open communication

To get your team on the right track for 2023, registration is now open for the foundational 6-week Positive Intelligence® Business Training Program. In fact, 84% of participants reported that they felt significantly better at conflict management after starting the program, and 92% feel that they’re much better at teamwork and collaboration.

How to improve your well-being by focusing on work-life balance

Even if you consider yourself a career-oriented person, it’s important to find a balance that allows you to participate in family and other social commitments.

According to a recent study, 32% of Canadians surveyed said they missed a lifestyle engagement because of work. The numbers are even higher for those in the hospitality industry when you consider the extensive weekend and holiday hour requirements.

While it’s true that having a strong work ethic can be healthy and admirable, it’s important to know when it’s time to take a break. You’re no good to your team and organization if you’re exhausted with burnout.

When you focus on balance, you’re much less likely to fall into cycles of burnout, meaning you’ll be able to show up as your best self in the workplace and anywhere else you want to be.

Registration is now open for the PowerLEAD Development Training Program. This program supports leaders to increase leadership effectiveness and success in their role.

Imposter Syndrome: Fighting Through Self-Doubt

You might be aware of your impostor syndrome, but are you aware of the tools out there to help you fight against it? Ultimately, it comes down to your core beliefs, which are ingrained thoughts we have about ourselves as a result of different experiences that create our worldview. Essentially, your “core beliefs” completely change how you view and experience the world.

For example, someone who thinks the world is out to get them might experience even the slightest inconvenience as if they are being targeted. When you feel like the universe is working against you, it’s impossible to get into a mindset for success.

On the other hand, if you’re in a headspace that is ready to accept and overcome challenges, the world is really yours for the taking.

Try to assess your core beliefs by asking yourself the following questions:

  • What do I believe to be true about myself?
  • Do I rely on the approval of others for a sense of self-worth?
  • Am I worthy of love and acceptance as my authentic self?

Women in leadership roles have the power to change the workforce, and it all starts with a little mental exercise.

Registration is now open for the next 6-week Positive Intelligence® Mental Fitness Foundation program starting January 21, 2023. The program is based on Shirzad Chamine’s Positive Intelligence® work.

You will learn to use negative emotions as a helpful alert and then quickly shift to the positive region of the brain that has the calm, clarity, objectivity and creativity to handle life’s challenges more effectively.

Imposter Syndrome: The Impact of Your Inner Voice

Sometimes we use our inner voice to guide us to make better decisions, sometimes intuition can be more valuable than facts. When it comes to something like impostor syndrome, you’re usually stuck dealing with a vicious cycle of anxiety, things turning out okay, and attributing that success to something other than your ability.

When you deal with constant bouts of anxiety and fear like this, it’s not uncommon for you to advance into depression. The reason why it’s so hard to get out of this cycle is that the more you accomplish, the stronger the “impostor” feeling becomes.

It might be hard for you to pinpoint exactly where impostor syndrome affects your current life, so here are some examples:

  • You’ve moved into a leadership role and feel uncomfortable when referred to by your newer title as if you didn’t earn it.
  • You might have a hard time promoting yourself or your business because you feel like those who do have more experience than you.
  • You often find yourself in a state of indecision because of your lack of confidence in your role.

While these feelings are difficult to navigate and hard to talk about, you don’t have to do it alone.

Registration is now open for the next 6-week Positive Intelligence® Mental Fitness Foundation program starting November 12, 2022. The program is based on Shirzad Chamine’s Positive Intelligence® work.

You will learn to use negative emotions as a helpful alert and then quickly shift to the positive region of the brain that has the calm, clarity, objectivity and creativity to handle life’s challenges more effectively.

Discover what’s holding you back: Identifying Imposter Syndrome in Female Leaders

According to a recent study, a whopping 90% of female employees struggle with impostor syndrome. What’s even more shocking? This happens to people regardless of their level of expertise, it’s a psychological pattern that often isn’t noticed until the symptoms start to become overwhelming. In fact, only about 25% of those surveyed are aware of their symptoms.

Females in leadership positions deal with enough pressure, so recognizing impostor syndrome can help you stay on track and focus on business goals. Impostor syndrome presents itself in different ways, some of the symptoms include:

  • Believing your success is based on luck.
  • You might think people will “discover” that you are somehow unqualified for your position, even though you are.
  • Self-doubt and thinking that you don’t deserve the praise you receive.
  • Constant fear that you are going to disappoint people.
  • Setting far-fetched goals and being hard on yourself when you (realistically) fall short.

The only way to grow as a leader is to face your mental challenges head-on, but it isn’t easy to do it alone.
