About This Class

This is the third video course in the eight-part “Creating a Mindset for Change” series. In this third video course, learners will come to understand specific areas of fear based focus and where they and the team are affected by it. Learners will begin to learn the process of disciplined focus amidst chaos and distractions. 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. 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.

1. Introduction: welcome to creating a mindset for change. A cinematic micro learning Siris In part three managing moments, you'll learn how to understand specific areas of fear based focus and begin to learn the process of discipline, focus amidst chaos and distractions. 2. Overriding Fear Based Thinking: in our last mind trigger. We identified what it takes to create a dense, narrow network. By establishing, I want statements. We are deciding what changes we want to make, setting out a plan of action and then doing it over and over and over until it becomes second nature to us this continuous practice. Re wires are neural pathways to form a habit were committed, Teoh. But sometimes fear can get in the way of creating these new neural pathways. What causes you to be fearful? It could be that a rapidly changing world is stressing us out and causing us to put our head in the sand. Well, once you acknowledge what you are fearful of, you could take action to move toward a more positive direction. It really comes down to forging new pathways in your brain. You have the power to set your own path for interesting projects riel, collaboration, innovation and mawr. So how do we do it by making a commitment to focus on the outcomes that we do want. Of course. First we have to write it down like an I want statement. Write down what we want in the coming moment. This is what helps create the dense, narrow network we talked about in the last mine trigger. Then think about the intentional about your focus. Do you see it? Visualize it in your mind and see yourself successful with what you want and finally do it . Put those intentions into action on a daily basis. This mind trigger will better prepare you to write. I want statements toe. Achieve a more positive vision. 3. Overriding Fear Based Thinking Continued: having a vision. Knowing what you want big picture is critical. We all believe that's true. But here's a challenge. Imagine that you received a text message and it said that I can't wait to see you at your teeth cleaning next week. If you're like most of us, what are you going to dio? It's likely you're going to begin flossing your teeth with reckless abandon, right? Well, why? Well, in last six months, you got a little sloppy and you're going to try to make up for lost time because you weren't managing moments. And that's really what we need to dio. What do you want in the next conversation in the next email in the next meeting? These are the red car moments. What do you want? By defining what you want? We're creating a dense, narrow network in our brain, and it lends to more than just accomplishing what we want. It lends to creativity, agility, change, adapt iveness and all the attributes that will mark the most successful individuals now and into the future. Listen, I know that change is easier for some than others, but denying change and digging your heels in isn't helping In fact, it's causing the release of cortisol, and we know there is very little good that comes from that. So honestly, acknowledging your natural reaction to change and developing a mindset that is more effective has never been more important. 4. Overriding Fear Based Thinking Self Reflection: 5. Back to Ted: each day. As soon as we awake, we have a choice. We can choose to have negative thoughts or we direct our thoughts into positive outcome thinking. Redirecting our thoughts and focusing on the positive side of things not only affects our individual day, but also those around us. Ted became aware of what he was focusing on and that positive focus spread to other areas of the company, which then affected the divisions Overall performance positively in the next mind traitor, you will be better prepared to identify what and I want statement can do to change the mindset. So let's see how Ted's team reacted to his new plan. 6. Back to Ted continued : all right back to Ted. I started off with telling the story of Tad and the cascading effect of unconscious focus on what we fear and what we're hoping to avoid. Once had realized what he was doing. He brought his team together, and he asked them if they'd be willing to reset zero and get really clear about what they did want. He owned that he'd been putting a great deal of focus on everything that they were trying to avoid. So all of the team members identified there. I want statements individually and as a group they identified their We want statements for the team. Now, let me tell you, this doesn't mean that they didn't have challenges. They most certainly did. But now they had targets in which to focus on, and it changed the dynamics of the group and the outcomes that they produced almost immediately. That's the power of creating a cascading effect of the intentional focus on positive outcomes. This mindset must begin with you and then spread to the team in the organization 7. Back to Ted longer Self Reflect: 8. Putting it All Together: are U S focused and as disciplined as you can be, Corta creating a mindset for change is an unwavering focus despite obstacles and criticism . It's the part of you that is able to maintain something, even in spite of whatever chaos and distraction may surround you. Intention is the beginning point of creating those transformations in your life. Next mind trigger will prepare you to intentionally focus on the outcome of an upcoming task. So let's sit back and watch how a 61 year old man did just that. 9. Putting it All Together continued: Now, Cliff Young is a wonderful example of the tremendous potential of a singular, unwavering focus on a positive outcome. In 1983 Cliff Young decided to run the Sydney to Melbourne Ultra Marathon race. The six day, 875 kilometer run is considered to be the world's toughest race. That's over 500 miles. Only the most elite runners are up to the challenge. Ready to go. Cliff Young, a 61 year old farmer, is wearing a sweater and collages. When the marathon starts, the runners leave Cliff and his glasses behind. The crowds laugh because he appears to be shuffling his feet instead of running correctly. Mocking Lee. It's called the Cliff Young Shuffle, but because he never read a book on racing because he never talked to another runner at night, when everyone else is sleeping, he shuffles right by them. Non stop For 5.5 days. He didn't know there was a limp. He didn't know he wasn't supposed to do that. He just knew what he wanted, focused on that and kept running. Young won that race. He broke the record by nine hours. Today, most of the runners who compete an ultramarathon still do the Cliff Young Shuffle. Cliff Young Story is one of dedication and determination and a clear example of achieving success through focusing on what you want. Cliff was very clear about what he wanted. He took the necessary steps to achieve it. Any insulated himself from his Doubters. Imagine what could be accomplished with a whole work team of Cliff Young's. 10. Putting it All Together Self Reflection: 11. There’s More: way have more for you. Part for embracing change is available now in part four of the eight part, creating a mindset for change. Siri's.
