Be Bold & Strong - Adopt a Change

Be Bold - Adopt a Change

It's that dirty word - CHANGE!

If you attempt to just throw the word into the wash, things will get dirty - even ugly.

We're change weary as we still haven't worked how best to approach change - either being the giver or the receiver of the change.

Being Bold may require you to adopt a change first, role-modelling the change or consequence of the change. Being Strong is being honest with your feedback and thoughts about the change rather than reading the company script.

Being Bold means volunteering to adopt the change amongst your colleagues or friends/family. Being Strong is giving it a good crack - enough time for the change to take affect and speak with authority.

The Change may be small or large scale and if no-one follows or joins in it will never get the chance to be tested.

Imagine life without your handheld device, driving without SIRI, a machine which washes your dishes and one which washes your clothes and running clothes which absorb your perspiration!

Change is great. Be Bold & Strong and adopt a change today!





Be Bold & Strong

This week, I want women to be BOLD & STRONG.

I'm confident we can do it and I'm eager to help you out.  It's wonderful when you do do it. You'll thank me! 

The idea came to me as I was out running yesterday (in the freezing cold) and when I faced my first incline I heard myself say "Be BOLD & STRONG. Every time I started to tire I repeated my mantra. 

Let this be Be BOLD & STRONG Week.

Five days with five ways to focus on making bold moves and having the strength to remain composed.

1. Do what others don't - get out of your comfort zone.

2. Take opportunities when they present themselves - in particular those that are disguised.

3. Stretch your mind for positive affirmations - you can borrow mine "I am bold & strong." Repeat!

4. Take a different approach to your normal routine tasks. 

5. Adopt a change which others are reluctant to take a chance trying.

today, let's concentrate on:

Do what others don't - get out of your comfort zone.

many people go about their life following others and some stick to a nice routine. If you feel comfortable - it's time to stretch and: 

Ask that question which you've been rehearsing in your head.

speak to a person 'face to face' rather than texting or calling them. 

Give Feedback to someone who will benefit from receiving direct information about their actions and behaviours

Make that phone call you've been fearful of making

Say "NO!' 

Say "Yes" when you would normally procrastinate. 

Share the weeks Mantra and let's start of movement of BOLD & STRONG women. 

I'm workshopping Leading with Confidence & Presence next month in Melbourne with Liquid Learning.
