In general, I find it scary, but the scariness is exciting, so there are times when I’ll embrace change just to get the buzz! Sometimes it’s just easier to say yes, and sometimes I know I resist, dig my heels in at the thought of having to do something new or in a different way.
Over the last 18 months or so, there’s been a lot of change going on in my head, even though it hasn’t always translated to giving my clients and community (that’s you!) the best possible service. Being of service, and being of good service is a really high value for me, but it sometimes clashes with the more creative, shorter focus side of my personality. And, as I approach 60, I am finding I have to write things down, or I forget them completely!
Recently I’ve been diving deep into Wealth Dynamics and Talent Dynamics, created by Roger Hamilton. If you haven’t come across them, they are personality profiling tools which are all about identifying and playing to your strengths in order to step into your full flow. When I first came across them I resisted them – they were a bit too new for me – but as time has gone by, I have really started to uncover and revel in their value. They are brilliant for career planning, for figuring out what direction to take your business in (or how best to develop your business), what sort of people to bring into your team and what makes you really shine.
I like that idea of really shining.
They are also brilliant for understanding how you respond to change, and how best to cope with it, given your personal style.
So my question to you is, where do you shine? Do you spend a lot of time trying to ‘fix’ yourself in the areas you struggle with (and if so, how well does that work for you?), or do you find it easy to delegate those things to people who are better suited to the task in hand? What’s the consequence for your career or business?
