 Take Action


Your life does not get better by chance. It gets better by change.

Ann Rosser, Owner and President of Finding Resolution Consulting, is now a Certified Gallup Strengths Coach.  As a strengths coach, she helps people do what they do best every day to improve their quality of life in and outside of work.
Finding Resolution Consulting 
looks at the strengths of your employees to see if they are using them effectively in their current roles.  Studies have shown that employees who use their strengths every day on the job are six times more likely to be engaged at work, 8% more productive and 15% less likely to quit their jobs.  Interestingly, however, when most are asked what their strengths are, they don't know.

Contact Ann to find out more about how you and your team can be more productive and efficient through discovering your strengths as individuals and as a team.

In the last newsletter, self-awareness was discussed as the first step to change. After self-awareness comes desire and action. Too often we don't deal with the specifics of a situation and therefore, miss the opportunity to take the appropriate action steps.

Think of your work place. Do people have the wrong impression of you? Do you want to change that impression? Consider the answers and findings you learned from asking the questions included in the Harvard Business Review article in our last newsletter.

If what you learned is a perception you would like to change, consider the following actions:
  1. Find common ground with those who have the wrong impression of you. Sit down and talk with them.
  2. Create the impression you want and realize it will take time and consistency to change.
  3. Address the wrong perception directly. Ask what you might do to change it.
  4. Continue to work directly with the person(s) who has the wrong impression of you. Don't be defensive.
The Harvard Business Review article, "You Really Can Change Your Reputation at Work" by Carolyn O'Hara elaborates on the points above; discusses the frustration of not being seen as intended and includes two interesting case studies.

Should you have questions about the newsletter or we can help you with the process of change in any aspect of your life, don't hesitate to contact us.
