067: Use Badly Delivered Feedback to Your Advantage
You can definitely benefit from feedback. Feedback is a tool you can use to accelerate your growth. Of course it is. Unfortunately, most people suck at giving feedback at work. Often the feedback is not thought through and is delivered up as criticism. That is a true tragedy. But that’s not what I want to talk to you about today.What I want to chat about is how not to make other people’s messy feedback into a mess for yourself. I believe feedback is a good thing. It helps you grow faster. Unfortunately, not all feedback is relevant feedback. And not all relevant feedback is delivered effectively.Your job is to hear all of it, weed through it, decide what to keep and avoid using it against yourself by taking it personally. And I know that can be a big ask - particularly if the feedback is direct, served critically and coming from someone with authority. When that happens, it’s easy to make the feedback mean something is wrong with you and beat the crap out of yourself.And you know that beating the crap out of yourself never works and leads to all sorts of other messy behaviors that are a giant waste of your time and talent.I want to help you learn to use badly delivered feedback to your advantage. That’s the focus of this week’s podcast episode that’s obviously called “Use Badly Delivered Feedback to Your Advantage”

065: I Want To Be Promoted, Already!
So you want to be promoted. Good goal. What’s the plan?When I ask people that, their answer often is ‘be really great at my job’. OK. That’s one strategy. What else ya got?Getting promoted is about a lot more than just doing your job well. I mean, that’s important too. But there's more to it than that. And frankly, are you sure you’re doing your job well? How are you measuring that? How are the decision makers measuring that?If you want to get promoted, you want to make it so that it’s a no brainer for all the decision makers.You want to make it so when they’re sitting around a table (or a zoom call), having a talent management discussion, and your name comes up, everyone is like “oh ya, for sure she should be promoted - no question”.Often people think that their only input into their promotion is how well they do their job. And that’s not totally true. You have a lot more control than that. You don’t have to wait around for other people to decide if you’re ready.In this week’s episode, I’m going to take you through my A.I.M. method to being promoted. It’s all about Assess, Incrementalize and Market. Use this method to build a plan to get promoted faster, easier and with a lot less drama.

064: APPRECIATE ME PLEASE: Amp Up the Appreciation at Work
Wouldn’t it be great to walk into work every day and everywhere you went people are saying “hey great job”, “way to go”, “you’re the best”, “we’re so lucky to have you”, “keep up the great work”.Can you imagine? What would that be like?It would be weird. And then it would be awesome for a while (assuming you believed them). And then, eventually, it wouldn’t be enough anymore. It would become white noise. You would need more.It’s actually kinda like an addiction. You need more and more reminders you’re great in order to actually BE GREAT. The biggest problem with this addiction is you can’t control when you get your ‘next hit’. The only way to break the appreciation addiction is to get off the junk. The junk in this case is the reliance on other people to confirm your greatness...I mean, it’s nice when it happens. But frankly, you need consistent appreciation you can control. And that comes from you.The trick is how do you go from self-doubt to self-appreciation? I mean if it was easy, then everyone would do it, right? So ya… it’s not easy, but it is simple. You might believe that appreciating yourself is impossibly hard work, but believe me… it’s way easier than waiting around for someone else to notice how awesome you are.Plus, once it clicks… you’ll be off ‘the junk’ for good. And that’s a freedom worth fighting for. In this episode, you’ll learn why appreciation is so important, how it impacts your performance and how to get more of it for yourself.

Why?Because fear of failure can stagnate your growth.Even the people who are used to taking chances struggle with managing failure at work.Which is understandable.. It brings on such a negative notion that people would rather play it safe than risk a new idea.Especially because failure at work is often “frowned upon”. Let’s be honest, you get in trouble when you fail at work. People tend to freak out and start playing the blame game.“It doesn’t feel like I’m allowed to make a mistake at work.” So if I need to fail to be successful, but the people at work don’t want me to fail, what’s the solution?

Your growth doesn’t have to be stagnated by your company’s aversion to failure. Managing failure helps you have fun, be innovative, grow and not let what other people say about you get in your way.Listen to: Managing Failure at Work.

054: How Successful People Think (and stick to their goals).
You set a goal because you dream about being successful.It’s the time of year when we erase all the failures of the past and start with a clean slate. We set ourselves a new goal and start afresh. And then what? Most people will quit on their goals in the first month.So what’s the difference between goal dreamers and goal achievers?

I want to talk about another little terminology I came up with… Career Impotence! It’s a little provocative… I know.

I don’t know the right next move… etc., etc.So today, we’re going to talk about the dangers of career impotence, how it happens, and of course, what you can do to get your mojo back…. so to speak … So if you’re stuck in uncertainty and confusion about your career, then this episode is for you.

051: Is it time to change careers?
A situation that I’m presented with all time is “I think I want to change careers”. Usually, people struggle with that back and forth for a while. And if that’s you, then you absolutely need to listen to this episode.Because it’s a good question. How DO you know if it’s time to change careers? How do you know it’s not just a phase or a quick or easy way out of a bad situation? And let’s be honest. There’s nothing quick or easy about changing careers. So you’d better be sure.Here’s what I DON’T recommend you do.I don’t recommend you jump at the first neat idea.I don’t recommend quitting and figuring it out later.And I don’t recommend making any sudden moves if you’re feeling fed-up, exhausted and angry.I’m not saying you can’t figure it out, but you’re making your path to success much more difficult than it needs to be.Instead, I recommend doing the work in this episode to help you make an informed and pragmatic decision.WARNING… what I’m going to suggest you do isn’t sexy or a quick fix. This work is going to take some effort from you. But I’m telling you if you put this effort in upfront, you’ll have a much easier time in the back end.And by the way - if you’re looking for a sexy quick fix to change careers, then that’s definitely a sign that you want a change for the wrong reasons.

050: The Formula for Career Success
I want to offer you a simple formula for career success. You’re going to bring it down to the numbers today.Oftentimes, when you’re going after your career success, it’s tougher than you thought it’d be. Your brain is resistant to doing the things you know you should do (see Success Intolerance). And so, if it’s tough, it’s because YOU are making it tougher than it needs to be. All the stress, fear and discomfort are coming from you, whether you know it or not. You have thoughts that are creating all the negative emotions and slowing down your traction towards career success.You’re getting in your own way with all the drama.And the only way to get out of your own way is to get your head under control and to stop focusing on all the obstacles and negativity.That’s why mindset management and coaching are the best investment you could ever make. I wish I’d done it years ago.But what should you do instead of thinking unproductive thoughts that drive negative emotions? You might think it’s thinking of productive thoughts that drive positive emotions.But not necessarily.The emotions you need to reach your goals do not necessarily require you to move from demotivated and scared to motivated and confident.Those are great emotions, but honestly, I think they’re small potatoes to the emotion I’m recommending you focus on. And I’ll bet you’ll never guess. In this episode I’m going to give you my favourite emotion for helping get maximum traction in your career success and give you my mathematical equation to help get there.

049: Success Intolerance aka Self-Sabotage at Work
One of the big mindset challenges that I’ve been meaning to talk about, and comes up all the time is something I call SUCCESS INTOLERANCE.This is a term I made up. You probably know it as Self-Sabotage. But I like success intolerance because it more perfectly describes what is actually happening in your brain. Self-sabotage is the action that you take. But success intolerance is what happens in your brain that drives the actions that you would consider as self-sabotage. So success intolerance is more causal. And self-sabotage is the symptom of success intolerance. Success Intolerance is when your brain tries to avoid the discomfort of going after the success you want by feeding you unproductive thoughts that stop you from taking the action necessary to achieve growth.In this episode we’ll define success intolerance, share how to recognize it at work and ultimately deal with it.Check out the links and shownotes at thecareerreset.com/49
