We Try too Hard

I love the leaders I work with as a Coach and a dialogue facilitator. I mean I love them as the individuals they are.

So often these wonderful works of art just try too hard. We each have unique strengths that we use unconsciously. And if used too long in the unconscious manner, we over-apply them. A particular strength can become the hammer that is used too often and begins to see everything as a nail (I believe it was Maslow who said something like that).

In this pattern of overuse, we subsequently become blind to other strengths and miss out on the benefits of acting from a conscious balance. We see everyone from our own context thus putting an inordinate amount of tension on our relationships and our own core.

Find a conscious balance in you own core. Relax into who you really are. Give yourself a break.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
