About This Class

Creating a mindset for change is a process that moves individuals from being unconscious and reactionary to being creative and intentional. This is the shift in mindset that is needed for people to focus on positive outcomes and change. This course will give you the tools you need to maintain a positive mindset and change behavior. This is the fourth video course in the eight-part “Creating a Mindset for Change” series. In this fourth video course, you will learn how everyone is different and that change is truly personal. Here is where you personally commit to understanding change and effectively managing it. 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 for embracing change. You'll learn how everyone is different and that change is truly personal. Here is where you will personally commit to understanding, change and effectively managing it. 2. Your Reaction to Change: Now that you're aware of the concept behind this program, the next step is to dig deeper, to create paved pathways that will move you towards a positive future. If we do this, then we will immediately go to a place of solutions whenever we encounter a fork in the road or a sudden change. So what is your reaction to change? So many of us go through each day reacting to the events happening around us, rather than making conscious choices based on what we want. This next mind trigger will better prepare you toe identify your recipe for change. 3. Your Reaction to Change continued: I say the word change. What is your reaction to it? Good and bad. Beer is the only thing that do not change. I accept the change exist, but I'm not a big fan of change. Hard to keep up with some of the dog on stuff that's happening. That's why I married a school teacher. She read the books. I just do the work. You get used to what you're doing, you know, and it's kind of hard to step out of the bubble. I embrace change, but I don't like things that are out of my comfort zone. Would you like to try this? Okay, that doesn't appeal to me. Oh, it looks like I'm not a big fan of that. Whatever it is. Uh, Octopus, what are you supposed to do? Taste. Do we have to a little bit of it? Well, change is always hard, and it's really hard in the work environment where I think people like to feel really stable. I guess we'd all like to think we're a little better and better at it than we are. It's actually kind of exciting. I like change. Um, but then there are some things that I really like toe. Stay the same, try the other. Let's go green. Smells OK. Green taste okay, It's not total. Is it good? I like green so far. Would you consider yourself to be open to change, Not that kind of change. It's kind of change. Yes, my wife made discreet, but I think I'm pretty open to change. I can adapt to change people. See that about me, Recipe for change, 1/4 cup of love, 1/2 cup of hope and a dash of inspiration. I take the thing that looks like change, and I ask myself, What is it like? Something that dealt with in the past? And then I say, OK, it's not changed. It's just a variation of something that I know. So it's not. It's not different to me is just, you know, it's blue instead of red. It's the unknown. So if you can approach it from the thank you for this experience, I guess I try not to get too worked up about the things that I can't control. People who you surround yourself with you choose to surround yourself with is part of the main aspect. I surround myself with friends who are really motivated and really driven. I eat a small piece. So maybe small changes have another one. Like every industry, you have to have changed to have growth. It's kind of like survival at at work. If you don't adapt to all of that, is always new things around every corner. You don't think in the future 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? What advice does your wife give you? I be more flexible. Could have another thing. I think this one. 4. Your Reaction to Change Self Reflection: Oh! 5. Playing to Your Strengths: your strengths are your inherent talents and your potential for excellence there. Your natural way of doing things so common are your strengths. You may not even consider them to be a strength things next mind trigger will better prepare you to embrace your strength. Watch this next video on you'll see what we mean. 6. Playing To Your Strengths contnued: my biggest strength personally is being able to listen to people. Likewise, I guess maybe math and science. I feel like I'm good with multi tasking and people. I just know when I need to intervene with people. And I know when I need to step up and say, Hey, you need to do it like this. You don't need to do it like that. Maybe given advice some people don't use what they're good at, I think is only thing. So you just got to find what you like, what you're passionate about and run with. Figure out your strengths and then use them to many people. Kind constantly. Want to be something they're not gonna be. Do you have weakness? Is a lot of when you're talking about your weaknesses. That's your saboteur screaming out the biggest thing of the weaknesses, acknowledging that you have it. And what are you gonna do to change it? I lost 80 pollen, but I'm still too heavy eating the wrong food, making the wrong choices. Don't let your weaknesses let you feel as if you are are no good. If I need a short weakness in myself, I need to identify what it is and is that something I can learn is something I need to talk to somebody about. I guess I try not to get too worked up about the things that I can't control. So then when I had 119 85 Blockages couldn't sing only night, I realized that I was in serious health problems back in 98. So after going through all this line, moved up your chest and take your heart out into all this mumble jumble, I realized I make some kind of adjustment, will be dead, you know, because everybody ain't perfect on. Maybe I have a floor you don't, but I can learn from you on that way. I'll fix that. I like to people around me to don't be out. You know, there's to reason why you do a job because you want to or because you have to. And it's a lot more fun if you want to. I need Teoh focus on what what I'm good at and my wonderful strengths. I think when you're playing to your strengths, it takes a different kind of energy than when you're not. It's a lot more positive energy people would enjoy going to work and enjoy what they're doing instead of going in order, work and being miserable. If the team leader is a good team leader, they're gonna want each from to bring their strengths out, know what their strengths and weaknesses are, so you can help them out and they can help you out. 7. Playing to Your Strengths Self Reflective : 8. Who Do You Think You Are?: it's time to make your strengths shine. It's not uncommon to choose things we think are right for us, which may not make us any happier or even improve our lifestyle. The chaotic marketplace has caused many people to lose sight of their greatest assets. If you know what you're passionate about and what really interests you, you can begin to create the outcomes you want simply by working with your strengths. This next mind trigger will better prepare you to identify with your strengths. Laura explains how to brighten strengths in your Life in the following video. 9. Who Do You Think You Are? continued: success with the same Red Cars mindset all begins with knowing yourself. If you know what you're passionate about, what really interests you, and you know your strengths, they're yours. They are your intellectual property. If you don't call them out, recognize them and act on them with intention. Your natural tendency to slip back into thinking about what you fear and are trying to avoid will reign when people are not doing work that is interesting. That does not tap their strengths. That is not enjoyable. It's like pushing an elephant up the stairs. Playing to your strengths is just the opposite. It brings out the best in us. It's the kind of work that we get lost. So look for times and activities in which you kind of lost yourself. Reflect back in your life, even back to your youth. How do you recognize the strength both? For starters, it comes easily for you. In fact, it probably comes so easy that you take it for granted. We often overlook and underestimate the good that we can do when we're playing toe our passions and strengths. It's exactly what organizations need today. Buckingham and researchers at the Gallup organization analyzed the results of interviews conducted with more than 1.7 million employees. When asked on Lee, 20% said that they were using their strengths daily. Granite adults recognize that they will not enjoy what they're doing 100% of the time. They know that workers work, not a day at the amusement park. I found that if people are doing work that they're interested in and they're playing to their strengths 60% of the time, they'll evaluate their work experience positively. But if it falls short of 60% even just a little bit, the grass will most certainly look greener elsewhere, and they will begin looking for other opportunities or else check out psychologically. 10. Who Do You Think You Are? Self Reflection: Oh! 11. On a High Note: identifying our particular assets ensures that we accept as well as seek projects and opportunities that leverage the best of who we are. When there is alignment between our assets and our I want statements, we automatically seek and create opportunities and projects that are right for us. He may be saying, I already do that, but do you? Do you really think about it? We tend to accept jobs because someone told us we should or because of the fringe benefits that come with it or because of a title that sounds impressive Onley to discover that the job is unfulfilling and more stressful than we imagine it to be. This mind trigger will help us to recognize that being clear about what we want can help us stay on track, even if it's arduous at times because it brings out the best in us. You'll see what we mean when you watch this video about a girl on her passion 12. On a High Note continued: through my work is a workforce innovator and consultant. I've met some remarkable people who have taught an inspired me. They've accomplished things that most of us only dream about. Take Magdalena Moeller Perth, for example. At only 15 she's a celebrated professional pianist playing to audiences all over the world . How did this happen at such a young age? What sets her apart? Is it natural ability, or is it something else? In many ways, make. Dolina is just like any other teenager. But when you listen to her play, you realize she is different. Aziz. I got to know Meg, Galina and her instructor, Professor Baginski. I began to realize that natural ability was only part of the reason for her success. She had other critical traits that allowed her talent to shine her honesty at assessing where she is now for willingness to set goals and understand where she wants to be. In our ability to live with a tension between the two. What's the key to make Dolina success? She doesn't make excuses. She knows it's going to be difficult, and she does it anyway. And that's a lesson we can all learn. Every new piece make, Dolina learns, requires hundreds of hours of practice. She needs to not only learn the finger movements but generate the appropriate emotion in playing. It's hard work, and it takes patients and an incredible amount of commitment. Just think how simple it would be for make Galina to make it easier on herself. She could last in her vision. Peace is too difficult. I really don't need to learn this or lie to herself is good enough. I don't need to practice. The's decisions would make life a lot easier for make Galina, but they would not make her better pianist. Her ability to commit to revision toe honestly assess herself and accept feedback has allowed her to become what she is today. And in understanding this, I have been able to see myself more clearly. How often have I not been entirely honest about my current situation or haven't wanted to fully commit to a Golar project? Magdalena taught me an important lesson. I have the power to improve. I can make a commitment to a vision even if it's challenging and frankly a bit scary. I can choose to be brave and realistically assess my abilities and skills I can work hard to make steady progress and attain the vision I have set like make Dolina like you waken all impact the world in a positive way We have the ability to be amazing Don't be afraid Reach for the stars and live your life on a high note 13.
