A client of mine has faced several serious challenges since the GFC. Survival has taken it’s toll on him, his family, and many of his employees.
In a recent conversation I asked him “Do you want to continue to survive or do you want to thrive?” He looked at me perplexed.
I said “I honour your resilience. You will need to remain resilient. The road to thriving requires different feelings in the heart, thoughts in the mind, and different actions than those on the road to surviving.”
My client responded with a look that expressed both relief and anxiety.
We then discussed how his disposition had changed dramatically from the glory days of just a few years ago to the last few years. He had gone from positive to negative, proactive to reactive, creative to conservative.
We talked about how tired everyone had become, the low morale, and the disengagement of many employees.
“We have to change.” my client said with a quiver in his voice. “All change is personal first.” I said.
I am working with my client on 8 ways to move from resilience to remarkable. I have written a white paper about the 8. If you'd like it please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send it to you.
Be the difference you want to see in the world.
