Executive Coaching and Personal Development Coaching
Determine Which Door Next and Shift Your Stride to Match Where You’re Going

Areas of Focus

Enhance your power to lead organizational change effectively
  • The influencers that make a difference
  • Dynamics that make it stick
  • The leadership versus management of it

A stratum is a level of functioning (in an Accountability Hierarchy) that represents an ability to handle abstractions – a level of complexity – related to the organization’s work. This complexity is a function of the number of variables, how fast the variables change, and the situational clarity about what to do next. You want to work in a stratum consistent with your current capacity for dealing with complexity. You want a boss who is working at one level of strata beyond yours. And you want to promote someone who has already moved into the level of complexity processing required for the promotion.

In the 17January2005 Time Magazine article entitled The New Science of Happiness, research findings of the “father” of Positive Psychology, Martin Seligman are summarized: Seligman “finds three components of happiness: pleasure, …engagement (the depth of involvement with one’s family, work, romance and hobbies) [– a.k.a. “flow”] and meaning (using personal strengths to serve some larger end). Of those three roads to a happy, satisfied life, pleasure is the least consequential, he insists: ‘This is newsworthy because so many Americans build their lives around pursuing pleasure. It turns out that engagement and meaning are much more important.’”

  • The conversation we have with ourselves based on our beliefs
  • A reflection of the filter through which each of us experience, respond to, and operate in the world

What is Negative Self-Talk?

  • When the conversation with yourself undermines how you show up in the world
  • The negative tapes that play in our head when an unexamined, unchallenged, unproductive belief is running some part of our life
