How Do We Maximize Success?

Your success can come down to a simple question.

Are. You. Willing?

Willingess to Engage

The work starts and ends with you. Showing up, embracing the process, and investing the time will put you on the path to the success.

Willingess to Change

How rigid/resistant to change are you?  What makes change difficult? Flexibility and willinginess to adapt, transition, pivot, etc. will accelerate your success.

Willingness to Commit

Change requires your commitment.  I'm committed to supporting you.

Willingness to Reflect

Deep, sustained change can be hard. Are you willing to "go there" and address problematic and/or self-limiting behaviors?

Willingness to Listen

Are you open to feedback? Accepting and acting on input will increase your success.

Willingness to Prioritize

The "Tyranny of Now" gets everyone occasionally. It's easy to get caught up in the day-to-day. Prioritizing our work will quicken your success.

Your Mindset Matters

Choosing the Right Mindset Affects Your Outcomes.

01

Maintain a Beginner's Mindset

Aristotle said, "The more you know, the more you realize you don't know."  Purposefully stay in a "beginner's mindset" and you'll see and learn more and have fewer blind spots. The process will be more exciting, too.

Resist any urge to assume the posture of an "expert." The moment you do, you become less curious and the risk of blindspots increases.

02

Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset

Learn the importance of Growth Mindset from from The Nexus Initiative, a one-of-a-kind boutique Executive Coaching practice.

Growth Mindset: 
If you have a growth mindset, you believe you can improve, develop new abilities over time, and learn from your mistakes. Your past does not define your future. You see possibilities first.

Fixed Mindset:  

If you have a fixed mindset, you see the world through more of an unchangeable lens: "That's just the way things are," "It is what it is," or "I've never been good at that, and I never will be" are common phrases of a fixed mindset.

03

Viewing Mistakes As Opportunities, Not Flaws

Viewing your mistakes correctly can uncover a goldmine of insight about how to improve. We all make mistakes. Welcome to the human condition.

04

Understand the importance of Grace from from The Nexus Initiative, a one-of-a-kind boutique Executive Coaching practice.

Giving Yourself and Others Grace

Be your own cheerleader, and root for those around you. Give yourself the grace and space to evolve and excel over time. Life's a bumpy road. It's about progress, not perfection.

05

Grit

Not much worthwhile in life comes without overcoming challenges or navigating rough seas.  It's just a part of life.  How you handle "what's hard" can make all the difference.  Expect hard, embrace hard, and move through hard.  Grit is the best word that compasses this trait.
