I attended a Coaching Clinic that Alicia Marie presented and was amazed at the knowledge that I gained! I originally signed up for just the PHR credit, but left with a whole new awareness of myself, those that I work with and am surrounded by. On a conference call with my supervisor and a few Execs’, we were discussing another employee and it hit me what type of personality each member of the call was! With this newfound knowledge I was able to guide the conversation so everyone was on the same page and I left feeling I now knew exactly how to relate to those that I support daily. I would recommend Alicia’s Coaching Clinic to anyone. I promise you, you will come out of this clinic with a new perspective in everything you deal with!

What are people saying about this seminar?

“Alicia is a superstar. Her real life experience is reflected in the substance of her teaching. Anyone can benefit from her ideas and approach.”

Alicia Marie’s “Inspired Goals Workshop” blew me away. I’ve read books, listened to training programs and felt I knew a lot about goals…until her workshop. The workshop took goals to a deeper level that I had ever experienced. Finally, I was able to realize that something “was in my way” and that without addressing this thing in my way, I would have been off and running with my goals that didn’t get accomplished….again. I believe the workshop has helped me stop the recurring cycle of well-intended but never accomplished goals. I feel like I’ve been given a gift…a key to unlock the door I’ve been banging my head against for so many years. And it was Alicia Marie’s style that allowed for this revelation. She is amazing at empowering the class to come up with their own “aha” moment rather than telling us what to do. She has such a humble aura of wisdom and patiently invites people to “get it” on their own terms. As a person that trains people, I am flat-out inspired with how she does it. Her genuine care and love for the class is beautifully evident. Thank you so much, Alicia, for being you.

  Ken Kuznia – Owner of Dig Your Work

“I feel so fortunate to have met Alicia Marie and to have experienced her Inspired Goals Workshop. Having never had much luck with “goal-setting,” I expected the morning to consist of learning techniques to get my business goals on paper … but it was so, so much more than that. Alicia inspired me to “drill down” to discover where I am stuck, what I really want in life, and what is getting in my way … and not just in business, but in every aspect of my life. Somehow I left the workshop feeling inspired to take massive action, while also realizing that I need to stop worrying and stressing so much. I felt I had just been given the gift of years of counseling sessions in one morning! I highly recommend it for anyone and everyone.”

Be Sure You Have Your Employees’ Backs!

In tough times, people feel more vulnerable and their senses of safety and confidence can easily evaporate. Never has it felt more important to watch out for your people. A boss who backs up her people provides an emotional relief as well as a material one. But don’t assume that your team members know that you’d go above and beyond to support them. Even the best bosses can be poor judges of what it’s like to work for them. Make it clear by telling your employees that you have their backs. And, since actions always speak louder than words, take every opportunity to demonstrate your unwavering support and avoid creating situations that make it seem like it’s everyone for him or herself. 

Today’s Management Tip was adapted from “Do You Have Their Backs? Or Just Your Own?” by Robert I. Sutton.

The Middle Way is Very Simple ~

The middle way is very simple. Keep it simple and you will find the balance you have been yearning for. All extremes are fear based and destructive. Should you eat all the time? Well no, that would not be good for you. Should you stop eating all together? No, that would not be good for you. I could ask you the same questions around exercise,  work, play, relationships and on and on.  From science, we know that if you pull a pendulum 30 degrees to the right it will swing 30 degrees to the left. You do not need a philosopher to understand this.  

Sometimes an extreme solution feels like a good idea. For example; if you are always alone, eat alone, go to movies alone, watch TV alone, and work alone. Being in a relationship where you are together all the time may sound good to you. The reason it seems like a good idea is that you are living in the opposite extreme. However, if you then entered into that relationship, it would not be long until you needed your space. Learning to swing your pendulum less to the left or to the right is the middle way. The middle way is that place where you are not forcing or pushing against anything.  

The energy is balanced. You must first realize that everything has its opposite. This means everything has a middle point as well. Awareness of this makes the middle way possible. When you stop swinging between the opposites, you will discover far more energy than you ever imagined. What takes others hours will start to take you minutes. The things that wear other people out will not even faze you. You will learn how to manage your energy efficiently. 

I am saying that most of us waste tremendous energy on extremes. The inefficiency of your actions are determined by how off center you are. When you spend lots of time trying to maintain an extreme, nothing moves forward. You get stuck in a rut. You become stuck working too hard or too little, eating too much, not sleeping, being depressed.  

How do you find the middle way? How do you stop the pendulum from swinging back and forth so violently? Amazingly enough, you do this by leaving the pendulum alone. It will not keep swinging to extremes unless you feed the extremes with energy. Stop participating in the extremes and your pendulum will come to center. You will be filled with energy because you have stopped wasting it on extremes.  

This is quite different from how most people live. Someone cuts you off in traffic and you could be upset for an hour or more! If you are operating it the middle way.  Things happen and they pass. You do not get pulled into upset easily. Someone cuts you off in traffic and you feel pulled towards upset…then being aware, you open your heart, release and move on. Continuous upset is a signal that you are operating in an extreme. We all get out of balance. It can be a great way to discover the middle way actually.  

Awareness of your emotions will keep you from being stuck. The middle way is blind. You cannot see where you are going instead you use your cane to feel where you shouldn’t go thus finding your path.
