Simplicity, Agility and Mojo


The world is oozing info and options. This is great, but how does one simplify from chaos?  It is actually quite simple – Just choose simplicity. It truly is a choice.

Simplicity
Agility is thwarted by complicated systems, processes and thought forms which breed more of the same. This leads to getting nowhere fast.  Sadly, it often results in a downward spiral.  Slow response to change, red tape, busyness (not business), disconnected channels, resistance, blocked flow, restricted movement, group-think silos and a whole bunch of despondent people.  Does that sound familiar?

Does your IT team have the competencies it’ll need to survive the remainder of this decade?

bullsEye

We’re entering an era where, especially regarding Microsoft, things will change a lot more, and much faster. Some of those changes will be massive, mind-altering and disruptive — and you’ll need to be ready. Take this short quiz, adding up your scores, to see where your team lands.

When asked to rate your “comfort level,” be honest and consider the technical abilities of your team, their experience levels at these tasks and their ability to quickly learn new technologies. Remember, this isn’t meant to rate how “good” or “bad” your team is. Rather, it’s meant to help highlight areas they may need to skill-up in order to meet the changing demands of IT.

Career and Personal Mastery Mentorship Training Program.


“If we did the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves.” These are the words of Thomas Edison, yet our beliefs and our habits often get in the way of our greatness.

Hands Trimming Plants

There is an element of life that we are not taught in any curriculum at school or at any tertiary institution. This element is the aspect of Personal Mastery. We are taught to set our goals up to the point of reaching our goal, but we are not taught how to shift our intention from “goal setting to, to goal setting through”.

Furthermore, we are also not taught how to overcome obstacles when they do occur. If we are truly honest with ourselves, there is one aspect of life that we have no control over and that is life itself. Life happens, regardless. What makes the difference is how to react when life happens and continuously chase our goals and our dreams. Provided that we truly know what our goals and dreams are?

So how do we overcome those obstacles when they do occur? How do we call on our greatest knowledge resource (our self) in times when it is most needed? And how do we set our goals and dreams in such a way that we can effectively articulate, communicate and execute on our futures.

There is a solution, and that is to live a solution focused life, in all aspects of each individual life. This can be achieved through effective self-coaching mechanisms and tools.
