Do you really believe you can change? Not simply change your eating plan or your exercise program, but your communication or management style? Can you react less and respond more? Can you view yourself from a new or different perspective?
Like many, you may (perhaps without noticing) hold the common misperception that you simply cannot change your long-time, set ways of doing things — that your old patterns have been around too long and there is no “real” way to change all these years later. You may wonder if the whole idea of self-change was created by hopeful thinkers with few facts to support the idea.
Motivation towards excellence spawns the desire to change – the desire to shift behaviors to more positive, more effective ways and bring your “best” self to your life, work, leadership or career.
Coaching supports individuals in shifting their mindset to ways that allow and support behavioral shifts by helping them step out of old habits to create new ones. Leadership growth is about growth and self-development, and so change.
Aristotle believed we could change and he was a scientist.
