YAHOO!

Recently I have been working with a group of people in a health industry that can be quite the pressure cooker. What this dynamic group of people are challenged with the most is not losing their cool when the schedule feels out of control.

One of the team members said,

“It feels like I’m in a cyclone!”  

Her team mates nodded their heads in agreement. 

This was the place where the most energy was present in the one hour meeting I was invited to facilitate.  I suddenly, in my mind’s eye, saw Dorothy’s house from the Wizard of Oz, swirling above her head. She was in some serious pain and felt out of control. 

Ever had that experience? 

We all know it is not easy to deal with in the moment and, believe it or not,  just being able to express how it feels  is a great starting point for getting a handle on it in the future.  Yep. That’s right.

The awareness of the discomfort is your starting point for turning it around or hedging it altogether.  So I recommend you

consider this awareness a gift and say,

YAHOO!

Yep…that’s right.

What? You ask?

Awareness always puts us in the present moment. Empowerment is yours IN the present moment. So when you are having the realization that you might be feeling grouchy, irritated, or annoyed, remember it’s in your power to make another choice. In my experience, taking a deep cleansing breath or two is a wonderful first step and bridge to empowerment. Then remember this acronym for YAHOO as you say that word to yourself:

                                            You

                                            Always

                                            Have

                                            Other

                                            Options

Testimonials
"My husband and I started a full-time photography business eight years ago and as we were getting it going we found we have some very different ideas about how to run a business based on our two very different backgrounds in business. We also found that we were talking business with each other 24/7. We hired Lee Beaven to coach us once a week during our weekly planning meetings. Lee not only helped guide us into more effective (non-emotional) communication so that we could move forward, she also helped us compartmentalize our time for better efficiency and to make sure we had personal time together and separately. She always kept the tone upbeat and positive, while making sure we each got our time to present ideas. The ideas she helped us put in place at the beginning are still serving us well, and we have included her many times in our annual planning meetings to help us organize our thoughts into a workable plan. We highly recommend Lee Beaven as a coach for new business owners, and any that find themselves at a stall, or getting ready to move to a new level. We are at that point again and will definitely call on her for a bit of coaching as we redefine one line of our business." ~ Beth & Wolfgang Jasper, Wolfgang Jasper/Howldog Photography, Richmond, VA
