For those who wish to enlighten their (hidden) shadows
You are confronting your employee with the fact that she has not kept to her agreements. At first she is quiet, but then she bursts into tears. You are unpleasantly surprised, because you told her in a polite way and it is not all that bad. You feel uncomfortable and don’t know what to do. You comfort her and say you did not mean it like this.
After the conversation you are left with a sense of dissatisfaction. This is because you have the feeling that she did not get the message and because you find it difficult to deal with these strong emotions. Next time you will think twice before confronting her again…
One of your team workers always takes a defensive attitude as soon as you give feedback. It seems that no matter what you say, the message won’t come across. You tried many things in order to get through to him, but since his behavior does not change, it seems that nothing is working. It makes you tired.
When confrontations such as the above take place between managers and employees or colleagues, they can stand in the way of cooperation. Trigger Coaching offers a relatively simple solution to this problem; it is a great tool for her or him to gain a better understanding of her or his emotions and to stop inadequate behaviour.
Are you someone who is sometimes overcome with emotions?
Ask yourself the following questions:
- Would you like to have more confidence in yourself?
- Do you tend to react more strongly than is appropriate?
- Do you find it rather difficult to cope with ongoing changes?
Do you know someone who fits this profile?
In that case consider the following questions:
- Are all links of the chain in your organization equally strong, or is there a weak link?
- Is there a lot of absence through sickness in your organization?
- Are your employees working to the best of their ability?
If the answer to one of these questions is ‘yes’, Trigger Coaching is a fast way to deal with stressful situations more effectively, in both work and private life.
