“Believe in yourself a little more.”
A few weeks ago I began working with an exciting new coaching client with boundless energy and great potential.
As part of our kick-off Personal Excellence workday, we reviewed his 360° Leadership Survey, which examines his current style as a leader and manager, as well as his effectiveness in a variety of activities.
Although his perception of self was quite good, he was surprised, even a bit embarrassed, when his colleagues rated him significantly higher in virtually every area, including strengths and weaknesses.
Not surprisingly, he shared a bit of his upbringing. His parents were somewhat negative in their parenting strategies, leaving him feeling he was never good enough, and could never meet their expectations.
How would a far greater belief in yourself and your potential make a significant difference in living a happier and more successful life?
Where would a greater belief in those around you make a world of difference for the people you care about and love?
