“Realize Your Courage” with Anne Grady

Habits are a benefit in our lives. They keep us from having to think about certain tasks we perform regularly. You don’t have to think about how to brush your teeth because it’s a habit. Our thought patterns can also become habits. And if those thoughts are negative and limiting, we begin to find reasons to support the message, and they become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Today Anne Grady helps us find our courage, overcome those negative thought habits and allow ourselves to move forward.

“How to Break ANY Power Struggle” with Dr. Rob Pennington

We might have different values or goals. Perhaps we have the same perception of the facts and maybe we have the same goal, but we have different ways we want to get there. That constitutes a difference of opinion. Often, it’s a difference of opinion that turns into a power struggle – who can yell the loudest, who can be the most threatening. Dr. Rob Pennington teaches us how to overcome any power struggle with a simple negotiating question.

“Find the Agreement Hiding In Every Misunderstanding” with Dr. Rob Pennington

Dr. Rob Pennington says 75-80% of conflicts are because of a misunderstanding. If you realize that and discover the misunderstanding, the disagreement goes away, and you come to an agreement. Perhaps you just could not see the agreement because you believed the misunderstanding to be correct.

“Conflict Is Not Personal (It's Just Difficult)” with Dr. Rob Pennington

Dr. Rob Pennington teaches us to recognize that conflict, while difficult, is not personal. Isn’t it true that the person you are in conflict with would be the way they are whether you’re there or not. If you realize that simple fact, then you realize it’s not personal. It has more to do with the way they have learned to behave or their values, etc. That’s valuable information if you want to have influence.

Dana Wilde talks about the “cycle of perpetual sameness” and how most people only experience incremental growth in their lives, or in their business, because they continue to go on this cycle of perpetual sameness.
