QTIP – I often use this exercise in my communications training, I write four letters on a flip chart and ask the participants – what do you think this means? Invariably,
All communication is perception, let’s face it we all see the world through our own set of lenses, and that’s no exception when it comes to performance review
Thing is… In school we are taught to persevere, not to give up – and that’s exactly the model I was following. I chose this path, I need to make it work, I don’t want to be seen as a failure. I was measuring myself up against others whom I perceived as being successful, were they? I must confess that the answers were not coming to me I was in what we call in the coaching world ‘Analysis Paralysis’. Sometimes, taking yourself away from the situation gives you the clarity needed to see the right path.
It happens to all of us. One day we are sailing along feeling good, thinking we are on top of the world and all of a sudden- Whoops… something, someone trips us and we fall. Then we don’t feel so clever and start to question everything. What if I am not that good? You know how it goes.
