Mindset relates to a person's beliefs - their attitude, opinions, way of thinking and extent of resilience. It's often overlooked in the modern workplace, where the focus is more on achieving performance against targets without considering the potential detrimental effects this often has on employees and team members. Perhaps you're a team member feeling the effects of poor mindset. Or maybe you're a team leader looking for a way to support your team. This article outlines 7 benefits you can expect from one-to-one workplace mindset coaching.
Learn how to deal with change
The modern workplace is often fast-paced and high-pressure. Tasks, issues and unexpected changes can appear out of the blue at any time. This atmosphere can often be overwhelming for people who are not trained and equipped to deal with and manage change or stressful situations.
Workplace mindset coaching can help you to develop the mindset and skills needed to deal with workplace curveballs without getting overwhelmed or stressed.
Improve your communication
If you are frequently being misunderstood, or clashing with others in your office, it could be that you need to work on your language and communication skills. We all think that we are strong communicators, but even something as simple as the frequent use of the words 'no' or 'but' can mean that you are communicating negatively.
Workplace mindset coaching encourages you to examine your language and communication approach, to recognise negative patterns and to reframe the way you communicate with others in a more positive way. Changing your approach will also result in more positive responses and feedback from others.
Develop your emotional intelligence
Emotional intelligence is often under appreciated in the workplace, but is crucial to ensuring that team relationships and communication run smoothly.
Workplace mindset coaching helps you to analyse your own behaviours, needs and attitudes and to reframe them in a positive way. By understanding your own journey, you are able to recognise the journeys of others. You become more emotionally intelligent, more able to empathise with your coworkers and more personable.
Negativity is something that we all struggle with. We can all be hard on ourselves and others, and get into negative thought patterns. But people often underestimate the wider impact that negativity can have, both inside and outside the workplace.
Negativity reduces your energy levels, affects your confidence, your performance and your relationships with others. And this can occur on a subconscious level, you don't even realise that it's happening. One-to-one workplace mindset coaching helps you to recognise negativity, to untangle its effects, and to reframe behaviours and thought patterns in a healthy and more personally rewarding way.
Develop your creativity
Creativity can often be lacking in an office-environment. But even if you don't work in a particularly 'creative' field, thinking creatively to solve problems or find new solutions is an important workplace skill.
Our Cambray workplace mindset coach is trained in creative thinking, using creative tools and creative problem-solving techniques. By working with us, you can learn how to think creatively to not only solve your own problems and address your own challenges, but also to take this mentality into both your home and work environment.
Work on something specific to you
You might be wondering whether to consider one-to-one coaching or group coaching. Group coaching or team building can be great for addressing long-term group behavioural or cultural issues. However, one-to-one coaching allows you the time and space to address your own personal challenges in a more focused way. It provides a safe environment for you to be much more specific in what you want to address or change.
It can often be easy for individuals to hide behind others within a group coaching setting, where individual issues or concerns are never addressed.
Increase your productivity and performance
The last benefit of workplace mindset coaching is the one you want to shout about when convincing the decision-makers. Workplace mindset coaching makes you more productive!
Through the combined effects of stress management, reduced negativity, improved communication, increased creativity and higher emotional intelligence, there is an undeniable lift in performance and productivity.
By embedding the tools, techniques and strategies you will learn from workplace mindset coaching into your daily life, you will be able to achieve your full potential.
