Self-Awareness gives you the power of choice to recognize harmful “Hot Head” reactions to circumstances, which likely cause regrets, so you can PAUSE and allow a “Cool Head” to prevail with helpful communication.
Sometimes our “Hot Head” reactions lead to Low Road behaviors…not our best self. Hidden biases, opinions and perceptions when others behave in ways such as unreliable, hostile or untrustworthy can activate a threat which often trigger intense upset, stress, overwhelm and frustrations.
Without self-awareness, there are a variety of Low Road behaviors such as winning at all costs, avoiding, yielding and displaying anger that can hurt relationships and prevent moving forward consistent with your true values and purpose.
Discovering your power to choose a response rather than resorting to a default reaction takes a willingness to grow and learn about what is most important to you. It is possible to choose constructive High Road behaviors such as perspective taking, creating solutions, reflective thinking and delay response that show you at your best to expand your influence with others when you have a “Cool Head”.
Gain clarity of your values and purpose to help guide the direction you choose in any circumstance with a variety of learning activities including: Personal Brand Discovery Tool, Wheel of Life exercise, Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP) Self-Assessment survey and 2 sessions of individual coaching.
Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP) is a self-assessment on-line instrument that takes approximately 20 minutes to complete. The CDP provides a powerful way to improve self-awareness of what triggers conflict in individuals as well as how they respond to conflict. Based on these triggers and responses, the Conflict Dynamics Profile then provides practical approaches for improving behaviors that promote an effective workplace and personal healthy conflict. *CDP Personal Feedback Report and Individual Development Guide provided.
