    The Four Stages Of​ Learning a​ New Skill! 

    1. Stage 1 – Unconsciously unskilled. We don’t know what we don’t know. We are inept and unaware of it.
    2. Stage 2 – Consciously unskilled. We know what we don’t know. We start to learn at this level when sudden awareness of how poorly we do something shows us how much we need to learn.
    3. Stage 3 – Consciously skilled. Trying the skill out, experimenting, practising. We now know how to do the skill the right way, but need to think and work hard to do it.
    4. Stage 4 – Unconsciously skilled. If we continue to practice and apply the new skills, eventually we arrive at a stage where they become easier, and given time, even natural.

    Learning a New Skill is Easier Said Than Done! 

    Before rolling out specific training or initiatives that are aimed at improving some facet of your business, you need to ensure that your leaders and team members are equipped with fundamental communication and relationship management skills.

    Numerous studies have verified that cooperation, communication, interpersonal skills, listening and summarizing skills are critical to higher-order team success. In their book, The Leadership Challenge, Kouzes and Posner write, “Every leader ought to know how to paraphrase, summarize, express feelings, disclose personal information, admit mistakes, respond non-defensively, ask for clarification, solicit different views, and so on.”

    Where do you stand?

    Breaking Bad Habits? 

    When we’re starting out on a new goal, we’re full of energy and enthusiasm. We eagerly make changes and take steps in our new direction in the first few weeks. But as time goes on, the newness wears off. Our energy drains, and we lose sight of our goal. Ultimately, we slide back into the status quo.

    No matter how sophisticated your strategies to rid yourself of bad habits and create good ones, you’re less likely to succeed if you don’t track and review your progress frequently.

    Noting your improvements each day encourages you to keep going. And by identifying where you’re falling short, you’ll notice patterns and make adjustments so you won’t feel stuck in habits that feel unnatural or aren’t producing real change.

    Thinking, Feeling and Behaving. We Organise Them Through Our Brain. 

    As human beings, we are creatures of habit in what we think, what we feel and what we do. Some practices are beneficial, while others can be ineffective, limiting or even undermining. More than this, we help you change or fine-tune your patterns.

    By doing this so, they fit together with what’s important to you and what you want.

    You will build models of “better practices” to grow and progress, to enhance your life.
    You will become clear about your goals and wishes.
    You will appreciate the rewards from new habits.
    You will identify whats important to you and the obstacles you need to overcome.
    You will discover your values and align them with your actions.
    You will discover and explore beliefs which are necessary to help you make any changes you need.
    You will overcome the effects of adverse experiences.
    You will raise your confidence in whatever you attempt to do.

    Our coaching is actionable and transformative. It improves your self-awareness on how you create your experience, and you communicate. You understand your patterns. How your history has formed them. How they affect you now, how they can shift your behaviour and change your future.

    Why Values Are Important! 

    Our values inform our thoughts, words and actions. 

    Our values are important because they help us to grow and develop. They help us to create the future we want to experience.

    Every individual and every organisation is involved in making hundreds of decisions every day. The decisions we make are a reflection of our values and beliefs, and they are always directed towards a specific purpose. That purpose is the satisfaction of our individual or collective (organisational) needs.

    When we use our values to make decisions, we make a deliberate choice to focus on what is important to us. When values are shared, they build internal cohesion in a group!

    Great Leaders Communicate Effectively! 

    Leaders and managers know that time is precious, many executives have become tactical in their conversations instead of strategic, and problem-focused rather than opportunity driven.
    They sometimes use technology to bypass the potential messiness of face-to-face communication and truncate conversations as soon as possible.
    Yet our job is to lead people and maximise an organisation’s success. The fact is, the more time we spend in up-front conversations, the less time we are likely to spend clarifying objectives and solving problems.
    Great leaders cultivate a culture of possibilities and opportunities and are open to what other people say.
    They know that asking questions is an effective technique.
    They build a culture of feedback that aligns people with shared objectives and actions the proceed directly toward the desired result.
    They also focus on what is right rather than who is right to defuse tension, just resistance and produce better decisions.
    Contact us today and discover how you can participate in one of our workshops to elevate your conversational intelligence!
