Who’s up for criticism?

Good morning thoughts, ☕️

Who’s up for criticism?

I personally have endured many setbacks and failures, this is the natural consequences of taking risks.

I've grown both personally and professionally though these risks and I believe we can not improve without some failures.

Yet, it's important to balance one's risk/reward.

Never stop asking why?

I’m trying to learn how to provide assistance through coaching and teaching more effectively both to an audience and most importantly the individual.

Every person is progressing through life and this business at a different pace. Each person is unique, and the customized help needed can be a little difficult to put into words.

The 10% rule?

In the book Mentoring 101 from John Maxwell they share from experience that in average only about 10% of people who are mentors and mentees match up and make effective progress.

For me personal experience over 20 years. I’d guesstimate it’s about 20% very effective, 40-50% partially effective and 30% of people can not work together as a team. And there is a limited length of time these working relationships are most effective.

Are you ready for the next step?

The overwhelming thing I observe is people are looking for someone to agree with the decisions they have made or what they want to do. After all who want to hear criticism?

How can this be overcome? I’ve learned that having extended conversations, with an open agenda to be most effective. And normally to really get a person to relax and take down the walls blocking openness begins when we reach more or less 30-45 minutes within a conversation. As progress is made addressing situations the trust grows and the effective time to nail down problems can naturally shorten.

Yet when I’ve been able to nudge an individual to this point and establish the mutual trust needed. We both leave the conversion knowing both instinctively and openly express progress was made in addressing what need addressed.

Question, why do people place more value often on a complete stranger’s advice?

Who remembers our truck stop counter’s of knowledge? Boy, the stories that we shared!

Are thinking you should be doing better?

Do you want help? 1st be open to accepting help as the first step.

Do you know what your looking for?
