Working well, one day at a time.® Although we live in a fast-paced society, we all know that real change takes time. Unfortunately, busy and over-stressed people won't commit to change if they don't see results fast. That's why the experts at Courtney Consulting Enterprises, LLC have created a plan that will help you reduce stress, work more effectively and please your customers in just one week. If your organization has team members or organizational leaders ready to commit to change- this method will get that commitment in a week. By following this time-tested plan that hundreds have benefited from, Michelle Courtney Berry will show you how to "Change the Way You Think About Work and Your Life in One Week in Seven Days." Seven Days to Working Well for Leaders at Any Level Day 1: Slow down. Take stock. Cultivate Compassion. How do you spend your time at work and at play. What’s working well? What would you like to work on? Are you being too hard on yourself and others? Make a list of five things that you are doing well in work-life balance. Without judgment, outline three things you must change TODAY. What help do you need? Day 2: Identify what work and play mean to you. Are you getting too much of one, not enough of the other? What do you need most? How can you get it? Day 3: Discover who you like to work with and why. Are you into teamwork or just faking it? How do you feel about your leadership style and that of others? What’s getting in the way for total happiness? Sometimes it's better NOT to force teamwork if certain people just aren't "team players." Can you communicate your team or work style? What's working best for you at work and at home? What isn't? What can you do to make improvements or adjustments? Day 4: Manage stress through good communication. Be clear about boundaries professionally or personally. Once you learn to manage stress effectively, you can do almost anything. Try to tackle at least one area that’s been troubling you for some time. Ask for help. How can I help you today? Day 5: Visualize your ideal work and play situations. If you could make one change in each situation, what would it be? Draw what your ideal work/play day would look like? How can you get there? Day 6: Be good to yourself and your customers. You can't treat others well if you don't like yourself. Customers deserve our very best, but sometimes it's hard to deal with them if we don't like ourselves, our teams and where we work. Day 7: Protect your joy. This takes practice. Try it. No one has the right to steal your joy. Finding balance is a daily improvisation. Focus on the positive and visualize the path to balance, growth and less stress.
