Thinking outside the box? Why are you in the box at all?

Everyone talks about thinking outside the box.
My questions is, “Why are you in ’the box’ in the first place?

You may find deeper insights here to generate your thinking cap:

·      First, whose box is it?
·      Who said it was a good idea?
·      Why is it important to be in a box?
·      What do you get from the structure or boundary the box offers?
o  Fear
o  Need for structure
o  Unsure about the future
o  Want to contain a situation
Try on a new perspective and ask what your life and career look like without the box. Write it down and reflect on it at a later time.

What could be another metaphor you can use that has a positive framework around it?
For example, how about writing your own Instruction Manual for raising kids, managing your finances, or planning a big event in your life, like a wedding. 
The Payoff:
By being the author, you retain and enliven your power to be your best. When you’re in a box, it was someone else’s “bright” idea. Own your own™!

Your Coach,
Michelle Cubas, CPCC, ACC


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.
