At The Intersection Of Business Knowledge And Human Psychology: Strategies For Resolving The Pain And Strain Of The Working World
Boston, MA, April 6, 2016 – All across the country, there is no shortage of “bad days” in the workplace. Inept managers, poor communications, mismatched core skills and expectations, boss/subordinate disconnects: there are millions of reasons to be unhappy on the job. Now, award-winning author Beverly Flaxington gives readers solid, simple strategies for enjoying and succeeding in their business and personal lives in her books, Self-Talk for a Calmer You: Learn How to Use Positive Self-Talk to Control Anxiety and Live a Happier, More Relaxed Life and Make Your Shift: The Five Most Powerful Moves You Can Make to Get Where YOU Want to Go.
Businesses lose billions of dollars every year because their employees have health related issues stemming from anxiety in the workplace. Few employees are equipped to deal with a difficult boss, or peer-to-peer conflict. In Self-Talk for a Calmer You, Flaxington helps us recognize the triggers, position them more objectively and offers a step-by-step approach to change the work experience. Taking control of the way we talk to ourselves is a source of remarkable power.
In many organizations employees do not know how to overcome obstacles and become stymied and ineffective. Make Your Shift is a groundbreaking approach to systemically removing obstacles and moving on to achieving goals. The strategic steps outlined as SHIFT™ give managers a way to coach their teams to higher levels of effectiveness:
• SPECIFY the desired outcome
• HIGHLIGHT obstacles and categorize
• IDENTIFY the human factor
• FIND alternatives
• TAKE disciplined action
