This is the introduction to the second section of the course which is all about your work relationships and professional network.
You will gain an understanding of the 5 steps that go into building strong alliances and we will look at the first step which is to audit your current relationships.
In this lecture you will consider who you would like to connect with and add to your network of trusted alliances. This is about growing your network with key people who can help you get results in your new role and future roles.
Having conducted an audit of your network and identified people to reach out to and add to your network, you are now in a position to start strengthening your relationships with these key people.
In this lecture you will develop a plan that will make it fun and easy to strengthen the bonds you have with people in your growing network.
To make sure that you are properly plugged in to your network and continuing to strengthen the trust you have with your contacts, in this lecture we set up recurring reminders to check in with and invest in our alliances.
We are now in a position where we can start considering how do we become known by others in our organisation and industry. This lecture is all about raising your profile so that rather than you having to reach out to others, you start to be seen as a credible leader in your field and people want to connect with you.
This is the introduction to the third section of the course which is all about your confidence.
You will gain an understanding of the 5 steps that go into building strong confidence and we will look at the first step which is to identify those areas where you want to increase your confidence.
People say they want to increase their confidence as if it is an overarching blanket feeling that covers everything that they do. In this lecture we get really clear about what are the most important activities and environments where you want to up your confidence game.
Now that we have prioritised the when, where and who of confidence it is time to create a plan for how you are going to build your confidence in these areas so that confidence is no longer an issue for you.
With the plan in place, it is now time to take the actions that will increase your competence and lead to feelings of confidence. In this lecture you will practise generating the feeling of confidence for no reason other than because you want to.
As our confidence grows, we expand our comfort zone but there is always a threshold. To ensure that we are constantly growing and expanding what we are capable of it is important to map out the next stretch goal and start taking action to be able to operate confidently at an even greater level.
This is the introduction to the fourth section of the course which is all about getting organised at work.
You will gain an understanding of the 5 steps that create order to your work-flow and we will look at the first step which is to audit your current situation.
Before we can start to get organised on the outside, we need to make sure our house is in order on the inside. This lecture will help you identify anything about your mindset that is leading to your work-life being disorganised.
In order to become an organised person you need to decide that you want to think and act differently than you have up until now. In this lecture you will map out what you will do differently that will bring you the different results that you want.
You want to make it as easy as possible to stay organised and the best way of doing that is to design a system that handles the common sources of stress and mess in your work-life. In this lecture you will design a personalised system that you can use to ensure each area of your work-life flows smoothly.
It doesn't matter how organised you get there will always be chaos and disorder in the world. In this lecture we consider a mindset hack that will help you keep your cool if things do get a bit overwhelming.
This is the introduction to the fifth section of the course which is all about your career direction and personal values.
You will gain an understanding of the 5 steps that create an aligned direction for your personal and professional life and we will look at the first step which is to learn from your career path to date.
In business, we are so often focused on the future that it becomes rare for us to consider our current situation. In this lecture we bring our focus to the present moment and discover what we can learn from it that will inform where we want to go next in our life and career.
We can always make things better. In this lecture we consider what that looks like for you in terms of personal and professional direction so that you can make tweaks or big strides towards the improvements you want to experience.
Whilst having a vision for your career, your business or your life is a useful first step, it has little value if it is not backed up by daily actions that will help make that vision a reality. In this lecture you will get clear on the daily actions you will take that will bring your vision closer to being a reality.
The twists and turns of fate, the events that are outside of our control and the changing wishes of people in our lives can distract us from our own vision or can force us to need to re-evaluate. In this lecture you will put in place a schedule that will make sure that you stay on track and/or adapt your vision to work with the evolving nature of business and life.
This is the introduction to the sixth section of the course which is all about your energy levels and work-life balance.
You will gain an understanding of the 5 steps that create a balanced high-energy lifestyle and we will look at the first step which is to evaluate your current lifestyle choices.
Our current choices around our lifestyle tend to be based on our identity and beliefs around things like food, drink, exercise, sleep etc. These are the inputs that will either nourish or deplete our energy levels. In this lecture you will consider what your beliefs and identity are around these choices and whether they serve your best interests.
In this lecture you will consider your end goal in terms of what you want your energy levels to be and the lifestyle choices you want to make about the energy affecting activities of life.
It's time to get down to the granular level and in this lecture you will create a plan for making sure that you start taking action on a daily basis to shift your beliefs, identity and actions to generate the energy you want in your body, your mind and your spirit.
A source of energy for the human spirit is the excitement of learning or experiencing something new. Rather than leaving it to chance, in this lecture you will consider the kinds of education and experiences that will provide an energising boost to your year. You will then schedule and take action to make sure that these get locked in to your calendar.
In this lecture you will reflect on what you have learned from the course and I share a bonus exercise to take what you've learned so far and apply it to the most important areas of your life.
