Create A Little Magic At Work

"Because that's the way we've always done it" will not yield magical results. Do the unexpected instead - these 5 ideas can help!

Coaching Tip:

“Because that’s the way we’ve always done it.”

Do those words make anyone else groan?

Yet how willing are you to invite change into your ways of doing and being?

As I mentioned in last week’s Clarity Kickstart, the same old thinking leads to the same old results. If we want to experience new, better, more magical results, we need to do things differently.

And maybe even do the unexpected.

I am all for creating a little magic these days. How about you?

Inspired Action:

This week, do something unexpected. Some simple ideas:

Instead of starting your staff meeting with the typical agenda review, ask each person to share one thing they’re looking forward to between now and the end of the year.

Change the layout of your conference room and encourage people to sit somewhere they never have before. (We’re such creatures of habit, aren’t we?!)

Rather than a standard strategic planning meeting for the new year, bring in a knowledgeable coach to conduct an appreciative inquiry session.

Give the gift of wonder: Invite an actual magician to your organization’s holiday party.

Write an unsolicited testimonial for a small business, or share one of their posts on social media along with your positive commentary. You might be surprised how incredibly meaningful this act can be!

Do the unexpected. Create a little magic this holiday season – at work, as well as in your own life!
