My (Non)Newsletter

Updated: Apr 24

If a non-newsy newsletter is released in the forest, does it make a sound? 

 

I'm still working on a name for this weekly missive, if only to reconcile the title with its function. I don't turn to the Wall Street Journal for cow videos (obviously I have Instagram for that) and similarly, you don't come here for facts and figures. 

 

Which brings me to my question this week.

How do you want to be seen?

 

Whether you're an executive at a corporation or the executive of your household, I can't tell you what that role should look like. But if you want to be seen as good at what you do -- effective leader, clear communicator, sound decision maker -- what actions are you taking to support this?

 

The same question can be applied to the roles in your personal life. How do you want to be seen as a parent, partner, neighbor, or friend? Are you a good listener, loyal confidant, honest-but-gentle opinion-giver?  Be honest. What behaviors can you point to that paint you in this light? 

 

Full disclosure, I can tell you that my own transition from a global leadership role to that of self-employed, work-from-home coach was a big personal shift, and came with a steep learning curve. Among other changes, it requires me to network in new directions and put myself out there as a Coach, hence this weekly [insert new newsletter name here]. In other words, I've been there too, and this question has helped.

 

As your coach, it's not for me to say how you should be functioning in your current roles. What I can do is help you identify any disconnect between how you want to be seen and how you are behaving, or, conversely, help you identify what's working so you can build on it. Either way, it's a little bit of self-discovery, and you don't even have to leave the house!
