About This Class

This is the eighth video course in the eight-part “Creating a Mindset for Change” series. In this eighth video course, you will be prepared to identify how your disciplined approach to focus has affected your life.  You'lll apply what they have learned in preparing for an important meeting or conversation. You will learn about and commit to your role in influencing a self-sustaining intentional culture of focus on “I Want and We Wants” that fuels future growth, innovation and positive change. All eight video courses are intended to be taken in sequence with a spaced learning approach. The idea is to take one part of the eight-part video course each week or every other week, allow for a period of time to pass, and then consider the concept again in a different way by taking the next part. While beginning at the leadership level, the fundamentals taught in these videos are meant to spread throughout your organization - leaders take the program and then disseminate it to their team members, all with the intent of creating a culture of embracing change within the organization.

1. Introduction: welcome to creating a mindset for change. A cinematic micro learning Siris in part, a building awareness you learn about and commit to your role in influencing a self sustaining and intentional culture of focus. 2. Change Comes With Intention: whichever direction are prominent. Thoughts lean either positive or negative. Then our brain will attract more of those outcomes. Wouldn't it make sense that if you want positive outcomes, you think positive thoughts? While there are other factors that affect the outcomes we experience, our intention is one of the most powerful indicators. Next mind trigger, you'll be better prepared toe. Identify how your intentional focus on either positive or negative outcomes has influenced your life. Watch as Laura shows you to workers doing the same job, but who view their experiences throughout their workday and drastically different ways. 3. Changes comes with Intention continued: I put myself through college. Working in the medical industry, Carol and Rebecca worked at the front task. They were similar in many ways cheerful, helpful and committed to doing the job well. As similar as they were there, daily experiences could not have been more different. Rebecca seem to attract the disgruntled patient. Carol, on the other hand, rarely had such an encounter, and when she did, she was able to turn the tide quickly. So what differentiated their experiences? Largely expectation. A state of mind. Carol expected a fluid day at the clinic, and it often Waas. She'd quickly smooth those slightly ruffled feathers before things got really out of hand. Carol created a red car moment. Rebecca, on the other hand, focused on what she didn't want, and she got more of it. She didn't want charts to get misplaced, and the often did. Rebecca was focused on what she didn't want, and for that reason, anticipating situations before they happened wasn't even on Rebecca's radar. She reacted in the moment, and she reacted with fear. Carol Rebecca encountered this same tense situations very differently. The difference was that Rebecca's mindset set her up for negative outcomes. and Carol poised herself for positive outcomes. Remember, Just like I said when we started off, you get more of whatever you focus on. 4. Change Comes With Intention Self Reflection: Oh! 5. Preparing for a Meeting: being clear about your wants and actually picturing the outcomes in your mind is an exceptional asset toe have, especially when it comes to your workplace environment. Once your intentions are clear, you have a starting point for a whole new experience of reality, one that you have consciously intended in the next mind trigger. You will be better prepared for upcoming meetings by visualizing a successful outcome. Watch as Laura explains how visualization worked for Brian and how it can work for you. 6. Preparing for Meeting continued: one of the exercises I have people go through a lot, is getting really clear about what they want for an upcoming meeting. I talk about a story with a client. His name is Brian. He had a very important meeting coming up. The outcome was unknown, but he really wanted it to be successful. So I said, Brian, I want you to imagine that this meeting is done and it's been very successful, even more successful than you can imagine right now. What are you going to be thinking when you're leaving? What are you going to be feeling? What are the people in the meeting going to be thinking? What are they going to be feeling? What are the steps that you need to take to ensure that you are both thinking and feeling? As you've told me? What I asked Brian to do then is really visualize that meeting top to bottom item visualized the interactions I had visualized the questions. I, Adam visualize even the problems along the way and how he effectively managed them all driving towards the things that he does want. During the meeting, something was said by a participant that was not taken in the way that Brian had hoped. At that point, Brian had a clear expectation for what was going to happen and what everyone was thinking and feeling, so he jumped into action. Brian told me. We addressed the participants questions and concerns in a really systematic manner. We kept the conversation focused on the subject and redirected communication. When it began to stray off subject, Brian was able to bring the meeting around to a positive place by operating from this position of intention. Serotonin was released inside of Brian's brain, and he responded with creativity and innovation on the spot. 7. Preparing for a Meeting Self Reflection: like, Oh. 8. A Positive Future: It's easy setting those short term outcomes what we should do for dinner, who we should invite to our annual picnic. But what about those long term outcomes? Where do you see yourself in your organization a year from now? What do you want to accomplish for yourself in three years? Seeking a positive future is the best thing you could do for yourself by keeping your eye on the prize and not losing sight of what you really want. In the long term, you'll start to see small successes leading you toward the long term outcomes you're aiming for. You are, of course, beginning to take action in that one area where you have control yourself. This'll next mind sugar may help you as you prepare for your positive future. 9. A Positive Future continued: it said that we spend more time considering what to eat. A fair. I'm trying to figure out where we want to go in our life. What do you make of that? You come here and you really map it out way. Have less time at the fair. I only have from now until nine. So I have my whole life in that battle. You're thinking more What's gonna satisfy my needs at this time and not really looking into the future. Short term, everybody. Short term thinking. They based their decision on instinct like their gut reaction. Basically, the idea of where you're gonna go in life is such a big concept to grasp a lot. People choose not to think about it, and your life is a long term. So I think it's easier to plan for the short term than it is for the long term. It's a lot easier to think. Where is the closest pronto pup stand, then what life is gonna be like in 10 years? And so deciding what you want to eat here at the fair is, uh is a big step for this week. I want cheese Kurds in a salmon on a stick. Great. Now for the financial or family friends relationships. You don't think in the future you're you're in trouble. And it's very important to think, you know, where am I gonna be in five years? And what can I do now to make that better for me? I think off next three years. Four years. My parents used to look for the next 20 years. 30 years? I think my son looks for next 10 minutes. They have different experiences because I think through all of those things, you'll sort of learn a little bit more about yourself. I like to think of myself as someone who always kind of on the curve, always trying to push ahead. And I think that's gonna come. Or more vital. I also think making a plan is a good idea right now. Do I have a plan for my life? I do. Um, but e my daughter, She's like, you dio really got. Believe in yourself. I mean, if you want to do what you wanna do gold for it, you know, don't question yourself. I like, um, guidance of the mentor. Maybe a parent or professor adviser. People, you surround yourself with people who you are. I surround myself with friends who are really motivated and really driven. The future is what you make. It is what you put in. That's what you want to get out. So if you're a person that wants to work with change for good things to happen Ex Eagle for it. 10. A Positive Future Self Reflection: Oh! 11. Reaching Critical Mass: hitting critical mass. The existence of sufficient momentum is the aim of this program. An organization whose employees have been trained on the creating. A mindset for change program can achieve a self sustaining culture of intentional focus on ones that fuels further growth. This is critical mass. Watch This next video you'll see what we need. A worldwide phenomena began in San Francisco in 1992 with just a handful of cyclists has what's known as the critical mass ride in over 300 cities around the globe. There is a monthly critical mass ride that's building a community of cyclists and proving that bikes can coexist with motor vehicles. The monthly ride encourages bicycle commuting and motor vehicle awareness, and slowly but surely it's changing the way we think about transportation. Everyone's invited to take part and no one is in charge, each person riding a solely responsible for their own actions and should lead by example. If you're partaking in the right and your duty to positively influence others, all of us have the capacity to impact our jobs, our work areas, our peers and our projects. One ride at a time thief. So let's all take responsibility to focus on what we can control impact we have on influencing others to take that ride, whether it's on a bike in a red car around the shop floor to start creating a mindset for change. 12. Reaching Critical Mass continued: whenever you act on what you want to have happen, new pathways in your brain begin to develop, but you need to establish clear action steps to keep moving forward. Tool nine is the action traction planner. There's great value in reviewing your actions regularly and taken stock in your progress. Practicing this discipline enables you to track how long it takes to accomplish a must have and identify those actions that create the greatest value for accomplishing what you want one want at a time. 13. Reaching Critical Mass Self Reflection: Oh! 14. Congratulations: congratulations. You finish creating a mindset for change. Now you have the insight to create a positive future for you and your team.
