About This Class

This is the sixth video course in the eight-part “Creating a Mindset for Change” series. In this sixth video course, you begin the process of getting clear about what you want and the value of taking steady action toward your wants. You will establish your top priorities and recognize the importance of taking action on two or three top priorities and begin to ask others what they want. 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 six. Making it happen. You'll begin the process of getting clear about what you want and the value of taking steady action toward your. 2. The Bucket List: to help our brain build a positive outcome. Neuro network. We must begin with a bucket list of I want. This will help the process of focusing on the outcomes you do want in situations large and small. Open your tool kit that you downloaded to your computer and find tool to this bucket list is designed to get the wheels rolling on, creating an intentional focus on the positive outcomes we want watching this next mind trigger may help in completing your professional bucket list. 3. Bucket List continued : start with a professional seeing red cars bucket list. This exercise will help you reconnect with all the things that you thought about or said that you want professionally. Use it to brainstorm of free flowing list of everything that you want. I want to be the voice of reason in moments of challenge. I want to be creative and resourceful when challenges occur. I want to be curious and aware of the marketplace trends and changes in writing your bucket list. You might right. I want projects with aggressive timelines because they invigorate me. I want to manage others because I enjoy helping people. I want new and innovative projects. 4. The Bucket Lists Self Reflection: Oh! 5. The Professional Wheel : an important step in creating a mindset for change is identifying your current level of effectiveness with each of those spokes on the professional wheel. Recording where you are now and where you want to go will serve as a powerful motivation for changing your mindset of the 12 spokes on the wheel, collaborating spokes relate to your current level of effectiveness when it comes to your relationships with others. While the remaining categories referred to the outcomes you want in your work life. In the next mind trader Laura better prepares you to chart the level of effectiveness you display and the outcomes you want by explaining how to fill in your own professional wheel . 6. The Professional Wheel continued: now take a look at the professional wheel. The wheel has a number of items around the periphery of the wheel, including challenges working with other departments, working with leaders and working with peers. At this point, we want to get a clear sense of where you are right now, so let's take challenges. For example, if you feel both effective and successful at managing challenges, you plot a circle on the outside of the spoke. If you feel not so effective at managing challenges, then you'd plot closer to the inside of the circle. Now this is an exercise that happens to be very, very telling for people. I had an individual that was familiar with the film, and we were going through the book and toolkit, he said. He now Laura the whole concept of seeing red cars. I get it. I think it's really critical in developing a seeing Red Cars mindset. I honestly didn't think the unconscious focus of fear affected me and how I did this exercise. And here's what jumped out. When I was looking at the Working with Piers, I plotted toward the outside of the wheel. Working with leaders, I quickly plotted on the inside of the wheel and I sat and I thought and I looked at the tool and something became very clear to me. I was remembering you, talking about the social conditioning, and I thought about my father and my uncles at holidays when I was growing up, and then all of their communication, it was clear they didn't like their bosses. They didn't trust them, but they loved their bodies. So when I looked at the wheel, I realized the unconscious focus of fear and what I was hoping to avoid had reared its ugly head in my life. And that this stressful relationship that I have with my current boss is not the first, and that this is something that I had encountered. A great deal. Complete the remaining portion of the professional wheel, and it will serve as a snapshot of your perception of where you are now. If you were to connect the dots from, spoke to spoke, how bumpier smooth would your ride be today? The more well rounded your life, the more smoothly your wheel will turn. Leaders have found these tools to be invaluable in guiding discussions with their team members 7. The Professional Wheel Self Reflection: Oh! 8. I Want Statements: Now that you have completed your bucket list and plotted your professional wheel, you're ready to write your I want statements, remember, and I want statement is a written declaration of the outcome you want. 70% of our thoughts are focused on what we're trying to avoid. The best way to change that is to redirect your thoughts to the outcomes. You do want writing. I want statements, does just that. But awareness is key, with awareness and purposefully written. I want statements in each of the categories of the wheel you can retain control of life steering wheel. This helps you to consciously navigate through the potentially negative undercurrent of past social conditioning. This next mind trader will better prepare you for writing. I want statements that apply to your real life work situations. 9. I Want Statements continued: So the next step is to define what you do want in your professional work by writing what I call. I want statements. What we're doing is creating a detour around the amygdala. This is how we overcome that natural and unconscious tendency to focus on what we don't want. You write in. I want statement for an item that you've identified, for instance, challenges. I want to successfully manage challenges and 100% of the time be resourceful and upbeat and even the toughest of moments for the next six months. You see how this will give your mind something to go to a target, if you will, and it's productive and a positive one. So instead of the A middle excreting cortisol, what happens is the brain actually releases serotonin when serotonin is present. It's a lot easier to be creative and resourceful exactly what we need to be. This approach has really worked for me. At six oclock on the night before I was to present before 100 leaders, I was sitting at the bar with a genius. Where was I? You're right. I was at the Apple Store and the news was not good my hard drive was crashing. It doesn't get much worse than that. Once the tough news was delivered, I began texting my family and colleagues in moments. I had two laptops for the morning presentation. The Apple genius said. I have never come across someone as comas you in such a challenging situation. That's the power of an I want statement. Make sure that your I want statements are specific. Measurable in how the time line. If you can assign numbers and specificity to your outcomes, that will motivate you to take action. For example, you may say I want to read more, but if you don't declare your intention in a way that is specific and measurable and has a timeline, chances are you'll only make a slight improvement. Instead. Specify. I want to read one book a week or I want to read 20 pages a day. That gives you something to rally around. It releases energy and creativity and motivation to take the necessary action. So here's my I want statement. I went to guide and teach at least a 1,000,000 leaders and individuals worldwide on the seeing red cars mindset and methodology in the next three years. You see, the focus is on clarity, being specific and identifying what you want, making it measurable and creating a timeline. I've seen people at a time line toe in I want statement, and suddenly the plan, the people and the needed circumstances begin to fall into place. 10. I Want Statements Instructions: remember, you get more of whatever you focus on. You want to begin by reviewing your professional wheel for your 1st 3 I want statements. Focus on the following three spokes. Change challenges and tech savvy. After writing your statements, choose three additional outcomes from the wheel and write those I want statements. Be sure to select outcomes important for you to achieve in the upcoming months. 11. I Want Statements Self Reflection: Oh! 12. The Bridge: In order to bridge the gap between intention and action, you have to be clear about where you are today, where you want to be and what you must have to get there. The bridge tool will help you structure these thoughts and drill down your intentions to determine your top priorities for the next six months or what we call must have. After viewing this mind trigger, you'll be better prepared to maintain focus on your greatest assets and desires. 13. The Bridge continued: Let's now get clear about your priorities in the coming year or six months, you choose on Lee. You know best look back at your completed wheel. Consider your situation. What projects or opportunities and challenges do you have before you bearing these in mind ? Identify your top five. The most important spokes categories to focus on in moving forward. Armed with ease, enter them into the bridge tool. Next, write a short statement describing where you are at now to the left. Exactly opposite your I want statement. Studies have revealed that putting thes two things side by side play a powerful role in motivation. Your I want statement is to the right. Your, as is statement is on the left. Now let's determine your must haves. Your top priorities from the five choose to the most important and place them to the left. The remaining go to the right under nice but not necessary 14. The Bridge Self Reflection: Oh! 15. There’s More: way have more for you. Part seven influencing others is available now in part seven. You'll learn who will help you in creating a collective mindset for change and how to create the opportunity for dialogue and trust with those that just don't know quite how they fit in. Nah. Vicky to creating a mindset for change, influencing others. Part seven.
