By Steve Longan |   May 30, 2018

Nobody likes being told what to do.

 

You don’t have to be a neuroscientist to understand this. It’s just part of the human experience: once someone gives us a specific task and tells us we must accomplish it, our desire to do the task almost completely evaporates. Even if it’s something we wanted to do in the first place!

 

Will Working With a Mindset Coach Help My Pipeline?

By Steve Scanlon |   Jan 29, 2018

The truth is that no one has a 360° view of themselves. Not me and not you and not just in regards to our actual bodies: this goes for our businesses too. No matter how objectively we think we see our businesses, there will be blind spots.

In the realm of sports, most professional athletes have figured this out. This is why they rely on coaches, and many athletes have their own personal trainer/coaches in addition to official team staff.

And for the last few months I have become a student of morning rituals, lack thereof, and possible connections between how we spend our mornings and our effectiveness at work and life.
