“Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” – Malcolm Gladwell, Author, Thought Leader
Throughout this past year topics such burn-out, resilience and emotional intelligence have been grabbing the headlines and have been elevated to the top tier of the HR and leadership agenda as people and businesses continue to adapt to and cope with new working, organisational and social operating practices.
With many people feeling like they’ve been plunged into survival mode, it’s little wonder to see organisations respond by rolling out or reinforcing EAP and wellness strategies including programmes on mindfulness, meditation and emotional intelligence. However, in many instances, fundamental and sustainable change has failed to take hold.
Mental Fitness is a critical factor to success in a fast changing, complex world
Mental Fitness, a key driver of personal effectiveness, relates to our capacity to respond to life’s challenges with a positive rather than negative mindset. Building mental fitness supports wellness, performance and healthy relationships by working on and building three core mental muscles:
– Interceptor (relating to self-limiting and self-sabotaging thoughts)
– Sage (relating to perspective and mindset)
– Self-command (relating to the capability to direct one’s mind)
Just like going to the gym or for a bike ride, the building of mental muscles is a practice that, with intentional focus, can be developed and grown.
LURN is progressively introducing mental fitness to our coaching approach throughout 2021. Mental Fitness offers a language to better understand self-limiting and self-sabotaging thoughts & behaviours and provides an operating system to shift from self-limitation to self-actualisation and from surviving to thriving.
