Win with a Mortgage Loan Officer Mindset Coach

By Stefanie Sample |   May 15, 2018

You’re a highly driven mortgage loan officer looking to grow your sales immensely. You’ve attended the seminars, the workshops, the luncheons. You know all about managerial techniques, and you know exactly how to be a better loan officer. In fact, you’ve probably been coached as much as a Major League team.

 

So when you hear mindset coach, you may be thinking you’ve heard it all before.  But a mindset coach, by definition, will help you think differently so that you can act differently.

 

It's Not How Good You Are Now, It's How Good You're Gonna' Be: The Role of Coaching in Improvement

By Steve Longan |   Apr 24, 2018

We've been sharing this video featuring Atul Gawande around the Rewire offices lately. And it's not just that he's a proponent of coaching to improve mindsets and outcomes in our work. It's that he's seeking to answer a question that is absolutely vital to the work we all do every day. The question is, "How do people improve in the face of complexity?" And for those who don't improve, how does that happen?

 

To Recover from Job Burnout, Start with These Questions

By Steve Scanlon |   Feb 13, 2018

There are three things extremely hard: steel, a diamond and to know one's
self.  - Benjamin Franklin in Poor Richard's Almanac, 1750

As I pointed out in the last post, job burnout is real. It is powerful and has lasting effects if not dealt with. It does not discriminate by vocation, age, job role, or intelligence. 

 

And yet, "burnout" is not a clearly-defined term. It can describe a broad spectrum of ailments, from mild annoyance to a profound sense of anguish. This is why, though hard, it's so important to "know one's self." If we don't, we miss the initial clues that we are heading towards burnout. We chalk them up to life's normal ups and downs and forge ahead, often repeating the very actions and behaviors that started us on the road toward burnout to begin with. 

Looking for Positive Change? Start with Sweat.

By Steve Scanlon |   Jan 12, 2018

People that have chosen to develop the habit of working out regularly understand the value of a good sweat. 

 

At Rewire Inc, we don’t simply recommend that people exercise so that they feel better, or have a smaller waist, less fat or otherwise look better (though those byproducts certainly aren’t bad); we call for it because of what a good workout and a good sweat does for your mind.  There is a

The Power Of Starting Something New

By Steve Scanlon |   Oct 29, 2015

When hosting a Rewire Workshop, I often ask groups “how long does it take to break a habit?” A spattering of attendees will yell out anything from 5 days to 100 days. I suppose these answers are based upon the most recent book they read. And there are a lot of books out there on habits. How to change them, get rid of them, recognize the power in them, etc.  Our habits seem to be all the rage.  A brief search in Amazon left me smiling at the idea that there are hundreds of books all aimed at helping us create or somehow dismantle a habit or two.

Would You Rather Have "Younger-looking" Eyes or "Younger-seeing" Eyes?

By Steve Scanlon |   Sep 16, 2015

The picture for this article is of water taken from the "Fountain of Youth."  You can tell it's the real deal because it comes in an actual plastic bottle and even has a cartoon likeness of Ponce de León on it!  Bottled water aside, I don’t think the Fountain of Youth is a real thing.  I hope that doesn't burst anyone's bubble.  Best I can understand, there is a 100% chance that you will get old.  Granted, you can buy some creams that promise that you will look like Cindy Crawford for a while, but even she will eventually look like the rest of us will: old.

How To Enjoy Life Like The Italians

By Jason Abell |   Aug 19, 2015

A few weeks ago, the wife, kids, and I attended a wedding in the south of Italy (Sorrento to be exact). My nephew Danny (who is Italian) was getting married and invited his dear old Uncle Jason. Trip to Italy for an Italian wedding on the Mediterranean Sea? Ummm, yep! I’m in!

How To Invest In Others Like Uncle Vincent

By Jason Abell |   Jun 24, 2015

As many of you know from reading previous articles of mine, my WWII veteran/physician/real estate investor/all-around amazing father has taught me -- and anyone that spends much time around him -- life lessons that span generations and societal fads. This past Father’s Day, I decided to sit down with him and a voice recorder, ask a bunch of questions, push “record” and just sit back and listen. I am still blown away by what will surely be the first of many recording sessions. The first question I posed was around lessons he learned from his own father or father figures in his life as he was growing up. He told me all kinds of great things about his father, but what stuck out to me most were the things he told me about his uncle Vincent.

Oh, The Habits You’ll Make

By Steve Scanlon |   Jun 17, 2015

For those of you out there who have been to one of our workshops lately, you will notice that we focus quite a bit on the idea of making and breaking habits. One funny thing about “breaking” habits is that it is actually a bit of a misnomer. Once the brain has habituated something, the neural pathway exists in your brain for the remainder of your days. So, really, there is no breaking of a habit but only the start of a new one.

Where Do You Think Growth Is Going To Come From In Your Work?

By Steve Scanlon |   Jun 03, 2015

Much is made these days of the idea of self-awareness. A more popular term in the recent past is “mindfulness.” This, of course, is hardly new to anyone who has studied Eastern Mysticism. In the post-post-modern world it can seem like we have explored so much and attained knowledge on so many topics. It almost feels like the “information age” was something we were speaking about years ago and somehow we are past that, too.

The Winds Of Change: How We Can Adapt And Grow In Any Season

Exactly a half a century ago, The Byrds made famous a song written by Pete Seeger called “Turn, Turn, Turn.”  If you are humming that melody in your head as you read this, it may say something about your age.*

This Article Is Risk-y

By Steve Scanlon |   Apr 08, 2015

I’ve been spending a bit of time lately thinking about how our brains deal with risk.  In a nutshell, my research has led me to understand that most of us cope with risk constantly  — to varying degrees of success.

Getting An 'F' In Math

By Steve Scanlon |   Mar 25, 2015

Think back to the last time you took a math test. If your teacher was anything like mine, there was no "half-credit for trying." If you attempted a problem and got the solution incorrect, you got no credit and simply failed that question. The reason for that being that math is not about coming close to the right answer. It is an exact science. I remember wanting more mercy from my teacher for coming close to the right answer.
