A Whole New Mind

Discover “A Whole New Mind”!

Personal success and fulfillment requires discovery and takes a lot of courage. Your brand is a very delicate and to ensure you’re on the right path, you need to strategically define and determine the next course of action.  The best place you can turn is to reach out to me for coaching.  Another resources for your quest towards opening up your mind to new ideas, dreams and goals I recommend starting with the book, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, by Daniel Pink. This book is written in stages, and as you move from the beginning chapter, “Right Brain Rising,” to his final chapter, “Meaning,” you’ll be truly captivated. You’ll be immersed, in the enjoyable discoveries, and self-discoveries, that make improving and re-branding, not just an idea, but a clearly defined vision. Pink’s book helps you really, fine-tune the right path and aim for your next journey in life.

Pink BookI came across this book at the right time in my life. A year ago, I chose to embark on my Graduate School ambitions, at the University of Texas at Dallas. Within the Organizational Behavior and Executive Coaching Program, I found this book among my reading list.  The timing of being in the University, fused with reading the book for class was truly an uplifting and rejuvenating experience for me. Together they both provided a valuable safety net as I planned to move  toward a bright and successful future. As I continued reading Pink’s, A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, I discovered new my new ambitions and career goals. I learned about many great tools to get myself reorganized and re-positioned, to set out into my next chapter in life.

I really enjoy how Pink fused music, art and technology into this fantastic novel. Pink drives home the message that understanding those components are the keys to establishing a successful career as we live and work in the “new millennium.” I now have better understanding of how technology and automation changed the scope of my personal life and what I experienced during my career. Daniel Pink has a whole chapter called “Abundance, Asia and Automation” it was there where I vividly saw many parallels to my experiences. Personal re-branding should start with A Whole New Mind: Why Right-Brainers Will Rule the Future, by Daniel Pink. It enables you to unwind, relax and retool your energy into your next idea, goal, ambition and endeavor. I recommend going out and discovering fresh, wonderful, ideas.  If you would like to reach out to me for coaching you can reach me here.

What is high performance coaching?

??????

On a scale of 1 – 10, 1 being low performance, and 10 being highest-level performance, high performance would be 8 and up.

  • Where do you put yourself on that scale?
  • When do you perform at a level 8 and up?
  • How often do you perform at a level 8 and up?
  • What level do you perform at consistently?

High performance coaching is a partnership and you are treated in the highest positive regard.  You and I partner to transform and fuse your peak level performance into a higher, consistent performance level.  That fusion then transforms your peak performance level to a higher rating, up “the scale”.   This transformation takes a delicate, investment of your personal time and dedication.  Through it, you’ll fulfill all your dreams and endeavors.  We use scaling to help you visualize your progress.  This way you could really comprehend your success and get a clearer sense of your progress

What we’ll personally do together can improve your output, improve your skills, locate your blind spots and turn around all your results.  We partner together aiming your goals towards making the vital changes, that advance your career to the next level.  Objectives could be any of the following: get an amazing review, a promotion, get a raise and or earn a wonderful bonus.  We partner together so your accomplishments turn into quality contributions to your team, your company and so you better align yourself with all the business goals.  This partnership and trust is aimed so you can be recognized and respected for your potential, your citizenship, your dedication and your collaboration.

Inner Game of Tennis cover

Are looking for that higher-level edge and discovering clues to becoming more successful?

Consistent high performance occurs with your assignments when you have the necessary flow and when you are performing your task successfully with quality involuntary responses.  However, when you need to refocus after change has occurred, or when you have to change your attention to resolve an issue, how quickly can you bring your self back to that relaxed and involuntary state?  How successful are you?  If you would like to improve on those scenarios you can reach me for coaching here.  You can read this wonderful book by W. Timothy Gallwey, The Inner Game of Tennis.  I found this book when I was working at a large media corporation 10 years ago.   I received a lateral promotion that expanded the technical scope of my daily assignments and responsibilities.  I was Master Control Operator, operating three of my corporation’s largest Television Networks. I was highly dedicated and motivated to collaborate and find solutions to every technical challenge I faced with my exceptional, technical team. To keep my focus and my performance level on the right-track to success, I searched for some clues and resources. I was searching and exploring being able to apply and fuse better habits and methods into my overall contribution to my team’s daily output for our Network Operation Center. the_inner_game_of_tennisThe fantastic book during that exploration process was The Inner Game of Tennis by W. Timothy Gallwey.  I personally found it has the right answers you desire, when you wish to achieve high-level performance in whatever you do.  This book is almost like a bible for every professional tennis player these days.  When I was working for another large media corporation, which televised all of the Four Men’s and Women’s Tennis Majors, occasionally, I would hear players during their interviews, and during their Press Conferences, mentioning  The Inner Game of Tennis by W. Timothy Gallwey.  This validated all my thoughts and perspectives, hearing them describe  how great this book is, as a resource for inspiration, motivation and focus. As a Career Coach, I recommend this book for the mind-body connection; relaxed concentration techniques; the focus of your mind to overcome nervousness and self-doubt; and building skills for high levels of performance.  These are very valuable approaches to your performance.  They are not just for those looking to succeed on the Tennis Court, but those looking to get answers how to get from “Point A to Point B” or to “fine-tune” your “on-the-job-performance”.  This book will guide you towards the right path to achieving your career goals and objectives.  So if you are looking for that “higher-level-edge” and discovering clues to becoming more successful, I recommend that you get a copy of  The Inner Game of Tennis by, W. Timothy Gallwey.  After reading this wonderful book, you would like to work on applying all these insightful techniques, please contact me for coaching here.

Interviewing For Success

Stop and reflect:

  1. When was your last interview?
  2. Are you prepared for your next interview?
  3. Would feedback, skill building and strategies make you more successful?

interviewThose are three key questions to consider in for a reaching out to me for a mock interview.  A mock interview is a safe place to practice interview skills and gain feedback. It is also an area to gain the confidence and experience prior to your real life employment interview. Its design is to assist high school graduates seeking employment, college students seeking internships, college graduates looking for their first job out of school, and for those transitioning into their next position or seeking a promotion. The mock interview provides you with a safe guard towards achieving your goal.

The interview resembles a real interview as close as possible and provides an enriching experience for the candidate. It helps you, the candidate, to discover the expectations in a interview setting, improve your results, skills and performance.  To get the maximum results from this experience I work with clients to prepare for three very common interview settings, a phone interview, a video conference (Skype) interview and a in-person interview.  The expectations for the client is that they role play and simulate the complete 24 hour process from beginning to end.  They are expected to prepare and approach the interview with appropriate attire, etiquette, planning, research and closing thank you responses.  The interviews will be recorded and reviewed to ensure full and complete knowledge and feedback could be gained from the experience.  The more realistic a client approaches the mock-interview the more confident and successful the client will be as they move towards their big day!

Prior to your a mock interview, please consider three more questions:

  1. What would you like to gain out of your mock interview experience?
  2. What does a “successful interview” look like to you?
  3. If you were a fly on the wall in the office, looking down on yourself during your interview, what would you discover? What would you hear? What would you see?

I can help you prepare. To contact me and schedule a mock interview you can go here. You can read more about improving your interview skills here.

Mental Training BookI turned to this book in 2006 after I left my position at a large media corporation; and accepted a similar position at another large media corporation.  I was leaving behind working in a a fully automated Network Operations Facility and joining, another Facility that was in transition to be fully automated, themselves.  I had very little experience working in a manual Master Control environment.  However, professionally, I was highly driven and self-motivated to learn how to perform and succeed in my new role.  I love challenges and thrive on challenges.  Therefore, I realized rather quickly I needed to latch on to some mental training skills and techniques to make a smoother transition and upgrade my performance.  I found this book in my search for clues and answers.  I really found it to be a very quality read.  Over a two year span after applying these skills my performance was upgraded and I experienced continued success through my team’s transition out of a “Manual Era” and into their “Automated Journey” into their future as a facility.

Chapters 1 -10 really serve as your quest and guide into curiosity, discovery and  a fulfilled journey. You will see progress as you apply the skills through each chapter.  I really feel you will find the read to be uplifting, empowering, you will have flourished self-confidence and new tools to enhance your performance and results.
