Have you noticed how anxious everyone is?
The COVID-19 global pandemic has brought uncertainty front and center in almost every person’s life in one way or another. Some have discovered a loud “inner critic,” within themselves that expects the worst, reacts too fast and thrives on stress.
Take Jamie for example. She’s a mid-level manager. Because of the crisis, she had to make cuts on her team that she thought were temporary but now look as though they will be permanent. Jamie feels sad, scared and angry. At the same time, she is overwhelmed, having to reorganize her remaining team and keep their morale on track. Plus, she’s working from home with her spouse and two children.
Is it possible to find certainty in such uncertain times? I beleive it is. You can develop an inner certainty that is resilient to the inevitable challenges of work and life.
Last year, the 2019 IBM Institute for Business Value report titled, “The enterprise guide to closing the skills gap,” revealed the most needed skills in the workforce. They are flexibility, agility, adaptability, time management, prioritization, teamwork, communication, innovation, creativity, ethics and integrity.
Today and post-crisis, these same skills can help you create the certainty you need for the success and peace of mind you want.
After being coached for just a few weeks, Jamie discovered how to be more flexible and adaptable in a way that was authentic to her. She transformed overwhelm into clarity and was able to organize her team while being the genuine role model they needed. Jamie felt more grateful, compassionate and courageous. Her change in emotions released a flood of energy that she used to get her work done and find more quality time with her family, with much less guilt. Her shelter-in-place life is far from “perfect,” but it is much more manageable. She also has a strategy for how she will move forward in the new normal.

No one knows what the post-COVID 19 world will be like. However, you can be sure of how you will respond to whatever it is. If that sounds like something you would like to develop, let’s connect and discuss. My goal is to help you have more of the success you want with less of the stress you don’t.
