Getting Through Transitions

Transitions are a fact of life. Your business, your marriage, your house, your kids...your stage of life is almost always in a state of flux - whether good or bad. So our need to deal with transitions is not within our control, but HOW we deal with them is.

The problem with overwhelming transitions is that we: 1) lose sight of who we are independent of the transition period; and as a result 2) perform at uncharacteristically low levels, despite the amount of time and energy we put in.

Self Mapping

If you have no internal mapping, no understanding of who you are and what you do well, then you've chosen a directionless fate. You enter each new opportunity, challenge and phase of life with a 50/50 chance (if you're lucky) of getting it right. Instead of intentionality, your life is about risk management. You just hope that each "shot in the dark" hits the mark.

So the important question is: What "map," if any, are you using as a guide for your life?

Stress Reduction at Work

One of the leading causes of workplace stress is a mismatch between the natural talents of the individual and the requirements and expectations of the position. Simply put, the person feels he or she must "be something else" in order to properly perform the job.

Consistently going against your natural grain in this manner -- especially in the long term -- leads to significant stress, tiredness, frustration, lack of productivity, and can even cause more serious emotional distress (such as depression), conflict with coworkers and family, and other personal problems.

Unmotivated Workers

An overwhleming number of workers are uninspired, largely because they do not feel free to operate within their strengths on a daily basis. It's not that employees lack the necessary talents to be successful. The raw abilities are already there. But no one is tapping into them, and management may even be (knowingly or unknowingly) deterring their use.

If you've experienced employee turnover, whether one person or one hundred, it is critical that you examine the circumstances of each employee's resignation. What you may have thought was an isolated situation or unconnected instances, may actually be the result of ingrained organizational culture that is driving out talent from your company.
