Attention managers, small    business owners, and human resource personnel:

Are you often lost for words in correcting inappropriate behavior?
Are you beginning to wonder if you like being in charge?
Is your highest functioning employee bullying others?














COACHING FOR THE BEST IN YOU

  PAMELA D. STRAKER, Ph.D.


Frankly, the following statements say it all:


Stop setting goals. Goals are pure fantasy unless you have a specific plan to achieve them.~ Stephen Covey

AND 

If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much. ~Jim Rohn  



# 1 Belief- “I can focus on my health and wellness later.”


Focusing on your health and wellness later often translates…focusing on your life and your happiness later.  It is so easy to focus on work, to focus your family, and to focus on others rather than to focus on you. 


  • When was the last time you really took time to “connect the dots” on your health and wellness needs?
  • Have you checked on health concerns related to your family history?  
  • Do you go to the doctor with a clear list of concerns you would like to discuss? 
  • Are you clear on what health concerns your doctor should be discussing with you? 
  • Have you developed “IAAM” (It’s all about me) time in your busy schedule? 
  • Do you have a regular way to distress? 

The list of questions you can likely answer about others is long, but not having answers and actions related to these questions for yourself is just not fair to you and is even dangerous to your health.  It’s not just about “knowing your numbers” (referring to common health related measures).  Sometimes it’s about knowing “why” your numbers.  Sometimes it’s about “when” your numbers. And most of the time it’s knowing how you can change or affect your numbers.


#2 Belief- “I can always depend on my business/work/professional resources to get me through.”


  • Who is your “posse”? ...Or that group of friends upon whom you can rely, and for whom you care to be relied upon.
  • Do you have people you can depend on…I mean really depend on outside of your work environment... or do you assume that your work colleagues or professional acquaintances are your friends? 
  • Is there anyone “just a phone call” or just a “text” away? Do you have people in your life with whom you can share deeply without fear that it will come back to haunt you? Is your “rolodex” or business card collection your only set of personal human resources?

 
#3 Belief- “I can plan for my life later.”


  • Are you spending lots of time planning at work but not planning in your own life? 
  • Do you set goals for your life that are forgotten about in a short period of time?
  • Do you recognize your work as part of your life or do you see your life as part of your work? 
  • Have you taken stock of where you are, of what life stage you are in and what you ultimately want your life to look like?
