The Clear Strategy Approach
Why do you need a Clear Strategy?
I believe that everyone performs better when they know what they want and what they contribute. We enjoy greater control, confidence and happiness. From that simple belief I have helped hundreds of ambitious professionals build foundational strength that they use in career shift and job search, leading more effectively, and designing the career and life they want. With part personal growth, part tactical tools, we change moments of stuck-ness into opportunities to gain focus, be more successful and find balance. It’s a focus that comes with a Clear Strategy.
How Does the Clear Strategy Approach Work?
Imagine knowing your vision so that you can focus on what matters. The best way I know to discover what you want is to start with what you are good at. And before you can really leverage what you want into a vision, you must know how your strengths impact a team and an organization. When professionals can tie strengths to the impact on the team and organization, our confidence becomes a resource to lean into. Precious time lost on self-doubt and second guessing, becomes time for creative thinking.
It is said that ideas are 2% inspiration, 98% perspiration. You can wonder how some do it, or you can learn the tools to effectively negotiate your vision and get the acknowledgement you deserve. A lack of (appropriate) influence can lead to feeling a loss of autonomy, discouragement and frustration. When you learn the rules of influence, how different styles work together, and how to listen powerfully, you have more clarity and emotional intelligence, and can improve relationships and reduce conflict.
It’s natural to want to learn how to do it “right” and avoid failure at any cost. Once you realize that no amount of information gathering can reveal the learning that experience does, you have permission to move forward. The Clear Strategy approach encourages small risks that help you experience success (and occasional failure) and discover a new level of and calm along the way.
