I am one of just a few practitioners in Scotland helping people understand why State of Mind matters, how it works and how to be more aligned with it. That leads to phenomenally better results, far less stress and a lot more satisfaction at work. Whatever your job or business.
This may sound like Feng shui-ing the toilets or playing mood music in the lift, neither of which tends to lead to dramatic change. It is not. Over the past 25 years this approach has yielded extraordinary results in organisations across North America. And more recently in the UK.
When an individual gains an understanding of State of Mind their experience of life is dramatically improved. When the people in a business grasp the principles, every aspect – bottom line, customer satisfaction, employee engagement, productivity and creativity – is massively boosted.
This is because State of Mind is a factor which is operating anyway whether of not the organisation is aware of the principle. So most businesses are almost certainly operating in opposition to the principle at times, to the cost of the business outcomes. A bit like the plumber who fitted my gutter without reference to the principle of gravity, so that the fall ran away from a down pipe, causing water to spill over at the other [wrong] end.
My role is to help businesses and the people who work in them become more aware of this invisible factor which is always in operation. Then it becomes very easy for the individual or the business to align themselves with this principle.
State of Mind is a universal variable. That is, it applies to everyone, in all situations and at all times.
It is an undulating condition. People go up and down in State of Mind continuously. And neither of those facts is altered by training.
Without any specific training people tend to be aware of the extremes of State of Mind, particularly in others, and less so in themselves. ‘Don’t put Annie on the customer service desk today – her dog just died.’ ‘Bob cant handle an extra project at the moment, he’s going through a divorce.’ ‘Charlie is our top salesman this quarter. He’s having a real golden streak.’ And most people are aware that the best decisions are seldom made when the decision maker is stressed to the max.
These examples might suggest that state of mind is about external circumstance beyond our control. Yet it is not. Because, as people learn where their experience truly comes from – their own Thought, or processing, about external circumstances – they often begin to experience significantly more peace of mind, even in the face of ‘difficult’ circumstances.
Training illuminates what high state of mind looks and feels like: a place of clarity, inspiration, creativity and connection. And what low state of mind looks and feels like: blame, urgency, stress and worry. Unfortunately the majority of people will feel compelled to make decisions and take action while in this low state – because it feels so bad. Such decisions and actions are often foolish at best and catastrophic at worst. Awareness of this variable enables people to adjust for low mood and to avoid taking important decisions until clarity, calm and inspiration have returned.
The deeper an individual goes in this field the more clarity, calm and inspiration there is to be experienced. And more people are realising this: http://www.psychologytoday.com/collections/201205/creative-solution/fresh-mind-big-ideas
Even better this can be multiplied throughout the workforce. Imagine everyone at work regularly feeling as good as they do on holiday. Then the businesses’ biggest asset really is its people. It has an expert team of management consultants already on the payroll. Each of them has access to clarity and inspiration, and they will enjoy sharing that in the company given the opportunity.
