As we exit the first half of 2020, there are signs that the broader approach to getting through the COVID crisis is shifting from lockdown to a socially distanced normal, a new normal. For the last 3 months we have all faced uncertainty on a scale previously unseen. As we all begin to collectively move into the new tomorrow that uncertainty is now rushing toward us in the shape of change. The ability to navigate this change is closely linked to resilience, individually, within organisations and institutions, and across the length and breadth of society.
"The more energised we are the more resilient we will be."
Do you know how you feel most energised. Do you seek stability? Do you crave challenge? Are you driven towards achievement, improvement, clarity, freedom, supporting others. How do you best like to make an impact?
FluX Sense powered by The GC Index® helps individuals and organisations answer these fundamental questions.
What if you were passionate about game changing, driven to make sense of the world, to strategise? You may have a profile like this for example.
What would this tell you, your team, your boss? That you feel most engaged, motivated and productive when you are feeding these natural energies. Then you look at your week ahead and it looks something like this. Filled with implementing and polishing meetings, activities and to-do lists that leave you feeling:
Filled with despair
"I know these feelings, I’ve been there myself during my career many times!"
What if your ideal week looked more like this?
But what is ideal? An impossible dream? Chasing perfection? Is it real? Is it achievable? For years as a black and white thinker I fixated on ideal, and then branded myself a failure for not getting there. It took me a long time to realise that I needed to focus on my reality, my now, and not get caught up with the concept of an ideal.
"What I needed was a way to anchor my reality to my ideal, what I needed was a bridge. A bridge to bring my perceived ideal into my here and now. To bring it closer, without feeling like I needed to get there."
That bridge is called CBTEACH®. It helps to bring your ideal energy balance into your reality.
