How Expectations Shape Your Reality
April 2016 Selected Video and Articles
Hello <<First Name>>,
For this month's topic - on Managing and Leading Ourselves - I am sharing "8 Unrealistic Expectations That Do You Harm" by Travis Bradberry (author of Emotional Intelligence 2.0) published by The Huffington Post, where Travis states that "You need to be extra careful about (and aware of) the expectations you harbor as the wrong ones make life unnecessarily difficult". And
In "You Need to Practice Being Your Future Self" published by Harvard Business Review, Peter Bregman suggests that " if you want to be productive, you need to spend time doing things that feel ridiculously unproductive."
The recommended management tip also from Harvard Business Review is "Don't Overmonitor Your Goals".
Monthly additional brief info about Coaching: This month I am featuring the latest blog of fellow Blanchard Coach Patricia Overland: "Coaching. Riding a Bike and Being a First-time Manager" where Patricia shares insightful analogies among these three activities and describes how a coach can help when you are on a new path and want to maximize your potential.
My Best for your month of April to come to a good closure,
