4 Ways to Encourage Yourself

Productivity is the result of an open mind and energy working together. Where we work has enormous influence over our attitude toward what we’re doing.
Consider how you can change your energy by being inspired in your surroundings.

As a coach, often clients share the experience of depletion, often termed “burnout.” They perceive they cannot take another step in fear of collapse. The feeling is real and the fear of collapse is they may not get up again!

Here are several ways to dust off the gloom and keep on truckin’:
1. Surround yourself with what pleases you. 
  • If you love color, add it to your room.
  • If you enjoy art, keep it in view.
  • If you love memories, surround yourself with photos of happy ones.
  • This will head you in a positive direction.

2. Clear a work space for taking notes, writing articles, and general clutter. If you have difficulty doing this, a professional organizer can assist. 
3. Breathe! Take three deep breaths each time you complete something. Get out of your chair and walk away for a few minutes to change your perspective.

4. Serve up a tasty, helpful snack!

As a credentialed business coach and analyst, one of my primary functions is to work with individuals and company managers to clarify where they are presently, where they would like to advance, and what tools they have and need to achieve their desired outcome.

I use a variety of tools to assess perceptions including Platinum Rule instruments, my experience and training in assessing behavior. My preferred tool is the EQ-i®, emotional intelligence inventory. I have specialized training on the EQ-i® and DISC Inventories and access to multiple other sources including a company culture index. I prefer the EQ-i® because it is the least judgmental instrument I have found. It focuses on strengths and areas of development related to the goals set by the individual. For example, people are more likely to apply the EQ-i®’s information rather than label themselves by the Myers-Briggs categories.
