Imposter Syndrome is the IMPOSTER (not You)!

Imposter Syndrome is the BIGGEST deception we play on ourselves.  So, why do we do this to ourselves?

High expectations & unrealistic standards for oneself 
Perfectionism
Comparison
Taking failure personally, so then one has a…
Fear of failure
Over-reliance on receiving praise


Now, here's how we get rid of it together:

Recognize and acknowledge feelings of inadequacy are common.
Reframe negative thoughts with more positive and realistic affirmations.

Seek support from friends, family, or a therapist.
Celebrate successes no matter how small.
Practice self-compassion.
Keep a SMILE FILE or a success journal.
Focus on learning and growth as part of the journey and goal.
Limit comparisons
Embrace imperfection because perfection is ALWAYS the enemy of success.

Overcoming Cynicism in the New Normal

One of the leading causes that hinders our growth, as well as our personal and financial success is cynicism. In recent years, many have experienced a marked increase in cynicism, and due to social media... possibly envy.

What’s different about Neuroscience Behavior & Strengths Assessments?

There are many jobs that are performance based. Neuroscience has been proven to provide the insights necessary to help improve performance with specific way to help support a growth mindset while minimizing the barriers of a fixed mindset. 

Think about the difference between a growth mindset and a fixed mindset. People who exhibit the traits of the growth mindset will keep going in adversity and find ways to get the job done. People with a fixed mindset will hit a wall and give up or just fail to try. When we use behavior or strengths assessments on their own, neither can tell you how the individual will perform and what thinking is causing the lack of performance. Have you ever hired someone who was supposed to be the perfect fit, but something just didn’t work out or performance problems developed after the 90-day probationary time frame? 

If you said yes, from a behavioral standpoint, it was probably stress that caused this person to move...

Scaling Up 3: Maximize Your Resources

Hi Champ!

In the last post we talked about three more ways you can work on maximizing your current resources. They included:

  • Reveal your business’ soul
  • From breaking even to breaking the bank
  • Stand up and stand out

Today we’ll talk about the last three areas you can work on to maximize your current resources. They are:

  • An offer they can’t refuse
  • Would you like fries with that?
  • Stay away from the edge of the cliff

An Offer They Can’t Refuse

The secret to success is to stay ahead of your competitors- maintain the competitive edge. To do that you need make it easier for your customers/clients to say “yes” rather than “no”. You do this by eliminating all the psychological, financial, physical, emotional and other roadblocks they may have.

You can take the risks for them by offering warranties and guarantees that make the customer feel more confident in you, your business and your products/services. You also must be serious about your...

Scaling Up: Maximizing Your Resources

Hi Champ!

Over the next few posts we’re going to talk about how to take a hard look at your current resources and get the most out of them. This can help your capital go further and increase your profit margin.

Today we’ll cover three different ways to maximize what you already have. These include:

  • Recognize the obvious
  • Unconventional breakthroughs
  • Face the facts

 

Recognize the Obvious

Sometimes when you are too close to something, you can’t make out the big picture. You need to step back and really take a hard look at the resources you currently have in front of you. You are surrounded by opportunities that can boost your career and help your business become more successful.  Quick wins can come from focusing on the following.

  • Safety
  • People
  • Cleanliness
  • Accounts Payable

Unconventional Breakthroughs

Don’t sit around waiting for breakthroughs you need to create them yourself. A breakthrough is merely a new way of doing things or finding a new...

Building Blocks for Business Expansion

Hi Champ!

We have been talking about the life cycle of a business and how to get the most out of each maturity level.  Today we will dive a bit deeper into the Expansion stage to outline key building blocks for success.

As a reminder, the five different stages of a business life cycle are:

  1. Inception
  2. Survival
  3. Growth
  4. Expansion
  5. Mature

Stage 4 Expansion

In order for a business to expand successfully it is recommended that they have shored up any holes that may exist in the previous life cycle stages of stage 2.)Survival and 3.)Growth.  We work to develop key targeted improvements for companies looking to add locations or franchise.  Filling these holes in the business maturity helps to build a steady foundation as one expands.  It is in this phase, successful entrepreneurs and leaders start to understand the phrase – “You can’t get to where you want to go with the same thinking that got you here”.  This is often difficult to hear or...

Building Blocks For Growth

Today I'd like to chat about the different types of capabilities and potential staff roles necessary as one grows from inception and survival into growth mode.  At Springboard Consulting we developed a business consulting tool that helps to identify key objectives necessary to springboard your business to the next level.  These levels represent the maturity of the business and here is a brief explanation of the model.

  • Inception / Startups; Less than 2 years old
  • Survival / More than 2 years or making a profit
  • Growth / Business experiencing fast growth, growing staff needs
  • Expansion / Planning Franchising, Licensing, or Multiple Locations business models
  • Maturity / Brand recognition, People, Process, and Technology needs fulfilled

As a company moves towards the growth level, there are essentially three key roles that need to be filled as a building block for growth.

  • The Expert
  • The Manager
  • The Leader

All of these roles need to be played simultaneously by different people...
