In this Cinematic Micro-Learning Program you experience the art of coaching and learning through bite sized video stories spaced over time. 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 first video course in the eight-part “Creating a Mindset for Change” series. In this first video course, you will learn about creating awareness and understanding. You will come to recognize unconscious focus and how it effects outcomes large and small.

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.

Dynamic change in business is exacerbating the natural tendency to focus on what we fear. This unconscious reaction is literally paralyzing people from being change adaptive. If this is critical for you, then it has never been more important to utilize Creating a Mindset for Change for your team or organization.

Here’s the premise: You buy a red car and what do you notice? You notice more red cars, right? You notice more red cars because that is what you are focused on. The same concept applies to you. You get more of whatever you focus on. Seeing Red Cars takes this basic concept and adapts it to help you apply your team’s focus to any initiative. It acts like a catalyst for change.

A global CEO survey indicated that 90% of CEOs believe their organizations are not change adaptive to maneuver the road ahead. When it comes to change, most organizations focus on structures, processes, and systems. Few even recognize that without an individual and collective Mindset for Change their best efforts will fail, especially now.

Learning Objectives:

  • It’s time to take charge, and create a shift in mindset
  • Shows you how fear based thinking is getting in the way of change
  • Teaches you how to rewire your brain toward positive outcomes
  • Enables you to create thoughts, actions, and behaviors that align with the  outcomes you want.
  • Provides the necessary tools you’ll need to act on your strategic priorities. 

Creating a Mindset for Change includes a Road Map for Leaders, the Cinematic Micro-Learning which is a self-contained process that spaces the learning over time and a Digital Toolkit to chart the process. You start your learning when you access a lesson. Each lesson is a bite-sized lesson that is a video that can be completed in 3 to 8 minutes. After you complete the lesson you are prompted to answer a self-reflection questions to make the content personal to your work and life. Creating a Mindset for Change is designed to first lead you through the methodology and next to provide you with the needed tools for real change. This experience is as close to being personally coached by Laura Goodrich as you can get.

Transcripts

1. Introduction: I'm Laura Goodrich. For the last 17 years, I've been working with individuals and teams experiencing dynamic change. I asked them, Is there something that's getting in the way of your performance and distracting the team invariably, Especially now, people tell me that fear based thinking on the team and in the organization is getting in the way of everything that needs to happen. What I've developed is a very practical methodology to create positive change in individuals and drive a change adaptive mindset focused on positive outcomes that they want and need. It's not another positive attitude program. It's an experience that includes the Why in the House, utilizing video, audio, graphics and music that turns your focus away from fear at what you're trying to avoid. To a mindset of focusing on positive outcomes. It contains actionable steps to create the insight that drives action an action that drive to the outcomes that you want and need. Now we'll write what I call. I want statements, I want statements are the triggers that keep you on the path to a positive future, and it's going to change your life and lead others to do the same. 2. Creating a Mindset for Change: 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. This'll course will give you the tools you need to maintain a positive mindset. Laura Goodrich, global workforce innovator and change expert, has over 25 years of professional experience as an innovator, speaker and coach, toe leaders worldwide and a distinguished voice on change in the future of work. The methodology behind creating a mindset for change is designed to assess where you are today and determine your priorities for the future by using mind triggers throughout the lessons to help rewire your brain and becoming more change adaptive. Now, before you start working with Laura, you should become familiar with the additional resource is that we'd like you to download in preparation for future mind triggers. Download the road map and the tool kit. The road map is a leaders guide that will help you to successfully lead a group bigger, small throughout the mindset change program. It's not a script, but rather a guide that gives you the freedom and flexibility to utilize the concept you feel will work best for your organization. The learning emphasises behaviour change, which begins with your thoughts and actions. The toolkit provides activities to record your professional wants as well as space to record yourself reflection answers and notes. 3. You Get More of Whatever You Focus On: creating a mindset for change will help you to focus on positive outcomes. Process discovers why we focus on what we fear and how we can move that focus away from fear to create a positive future. Changing your focus from I don't want to I want requires a conscious effort. That's where these mind triggers come in mind. Triggers air small lessons to reinforce your transformation and are designed to rewire your brain to help you focus your awareness to be changed. Adaptive. At the end of this mind trigger, you'll be better prepared to describe the creating a mindset for change program and recognize that the things we focus on really do influence the outcomes we get. So let's start the journey with this first mind trigger. 4. You Get More of Whatever You Focus continued : I always tell people you get more of whatever you focus on. Let me say that one more time you get more of whatever you focus on. My guess is this is that if you are here, you are also more clear about what you want in your life in general and for your team and organization. And so my question for you is this. If there was something that was getting in the way of accomplishing that, you'd want to know about it, right? Okay, let me introduce you to a concept that I've noticed in my work. So you recently bought your dream car. Custom wheels, full crown bumpers. And it's Fred driving at home for the first time. You start to notice. It seems like there are a lot of red car zone there the next day. What do you notice? There are definitely more red cars in. By the end of the first week, you're thinking, is everyone driving a red car? You're seeing red cars. You're seeing red cars because that's what you're focused on. Or how about this. It's every golfer's nightmare. You're standing at the signature hall, elevated tee to a large green a short par three. Only 140 yards over water. Lots of water. You take out your pitching wedge, stare at the water, you take a long last look at your ball in your thinking. Don't get in the water. Don't hit it in the water. Finally, he hit the ball. Where does it go? Okay, One more example to make the point. One of your co workers is really getting on your nerves. To make it worse, you keep running into this person in every meeting, in the hallway, at lunch in the parking lot, you can escape. Who is putting all those thoughts of red cars? Don't go in the water, and I can't get away from this person into your head. You are, of course, it's what you're focused on. And remember what I said. Whether good or bad, you always get more of what you focus. Don't hit it in the water. Isn't it crazy how we do that? The question that I asked you if there was something getting in the way of accomplishing what you want, you'd want to know about it. You see, I've spent the last 17 years working with people that are experiencing what I call dynamic change the kind of change where things are going in a new direction. What I found is that they have an unconscious focus on what they fear and it is getting in the way of accomplishing what they want and it gets worse. When I was working with these people, I would ask them, What do you want? And they would tell me what they don't want. Well, I don't want people to be gone that day. Don't want to be stood up at meetings, you know, don't want to waste my time. What I don't want to have happen is to have too much inventory in there. Don't want him to keep just thrown it back on us. This is an unconscious focus on what we don't want, and there's a cascading effect of it. And I found something else out. This unconscious focus of fear is made worse during times of change, 5. You Get More of Whatever You Focus On SelfReflection: Okay, I'd like to introduce you to a process we will be using throughout this program. Some people may have difficulty appreciating just how powerful this exercise is in changing the way we actually deal with all the ups and downs happening in our daily life. We call this part of the lesson self reflection. Reflective thinking helps You recognize how this lesson applies to you and what you have learned from one situation to the next. Remember, avoid riding a long description of what you saw instead reflect upon the experience that triggered you may want to keep notes on your thinking to You can do this in the back of your tool kit or a note section is provided. Oh. 6. Your Intentions Are Good: at working in your daily life, you get more of whatever you focus on. The problem is focusing on the negative is an unconscious natural reaction. In order to focus on the positive, you need to intentionally focus your conscious thoughts and actions on your desires and use frequent reminders to keep them there. Studies have found that 70% of our thoughts are unconsciously focused on what we fear and don't want to happen. This fear becomes the target of focus, and we don't even realize we're doing it. Even when someone's intentions air genuinely positive, their actual behaviors can come across as negative without their knowledge. At the end of this mind trigger, you'll be better prepared to develop an intentional focus on the outcomes that you want. Creating awareness and talking about it is an important first step in changing your focus. You'll see what Laura means after viewing this mind trigger 7. Your Intentions Are Good contunued : Let me tell you a story of a client. Well, column Ted. Ted was leading a project and he wanted it to be very successful. Trouble is, when he called, it was everything. But timelines were off. Budgets were busting team dynamics restraint. He told me that people were diverting their vision from him when he walked past them in the hallway. I always say that is never a good thing. So we made the decision that I chatto him for a day. A couple days later. I was there when he had meetings large and small, and it didn't take long to recognize what was going on. He started enclosed most of his conversations like this. You know, we don't want to go for a budget way. Don't want to miss that timeline. We don't want to seem uncooperative. We don't want we don't want way. Don't want almost all of his conversations began and closed in that way. Now, when I share this with audiences, they often say to me for a was he clueless and I want to be really quick to tell you this Ted was not clueless. Ted was demonstrating something that I've seen Time and time again, the unconscious focus of fear. See, he didn't know that it was going on, and it's likely you don't know that it's going on for you either. No matter the project, you have a choice. Just like Tad. You can either succumb to the unconscious and damaging. Focus on fear, or you can develop an intentional focused on the outcomes that you do want, especially on what you want in the moment. Each situation you encounter moment to moment, you have to have the discipline. Yes, display to focus on what you want. 8.
