What you need to move forward
Remember. It’s just a fact of life that some things can’t be learned on your own. We all benefit greatly from another set of eyes and ears. In order to develop your executive presence and reach the top of your field, you must develop your abilities to:
- Accurately read people and predict their behavior.
- Influence their perceptions of you (create trust and credibility).
- Persuade those of opposing views to come over to your side.
Self-deception exists in everyone, and often for very good protective reasons. But it rarely allows you to grow and develop your full potential. A good coach will help you see the barriers you put up that stop you from influencing others.
You will experience less stress and more balance as you meet all of life’s challenges with a new set of life skills and positive behaviors.
