Learn how to overcome self-limiting behaviors

Self-Assessment Exercise: Self-Limiting Behaviors

Where Do You Get In Your Own Way?

Self-Limiting Behaviors

A key focus of Coach Your Self Up is to help you identify and begin making shifts to one of your own Self-Limiting Behaviors. You will learn a repeatable process such that you can circle back and work on other Self-Limiting Behaviors at any time.

If you aspire to reach your fullest potential, it will serve you to make these positive changes. How you “show up” at work has huge implications for your overall career success.

Here are three common self-limiting behaviors:

  • I’m too easily distracted during meetings and conversations.
  • I’m unable to say “no” (when it’s a reasonable and viable option).
  • I (talk too much / don’t speak up) in meetings.
  • Listed below are additional common examples. Simply click to expand either of these lists. Please pause and reflect on which of these behaviors may be part of your own experience.

    ➤ This set of examples pertains to any individual at any organizational level:

    ➤ The second set of examples pertain to managers and leaders.

    How powerful would it be if you could make a sustainable positive shift in these types of behaviors?

What to Expect

sales sheet

Coach Your Self Up is a development program that provides participants with the approach, techniques, and skills to coach themselves to heightened levels of success at work, and in all aspects of their lives.

Unlocking Potential Through the Self-Coaching Path

Coach Your Self Up is a 6-week, instructor-led, online course and peer support experience. With about 60 minutes of self-paced instruction and practice per week, each module allows for personal reflection, interaction and discussion. There will be three additional 1-hour live online interactive group events during the course.

Participants complete hands-on learning practices to begin shifting a personally selected self-limiting behavior that may be impeding some aspect of reaching desired success.

On-demand lecture content and self-paced exercises are enhanced by online Q&A and interaction with a live instructor and fellow participants.

Exercises provide cohort participants the opportunity to practice new principles together before taking them back to the workplace. Accountability partners also help each other integrate new practices into their lives.

“The CYSU course was terrific and extremely transformational for me. I highly encourage this course to anyone who is looking to become more self-aware and learn how to overcome any self-limiting behaviors.” ~ Ben E, Sales Team Lead

Target Outcomes

➤ Identify and Begin Shifting One Self-Limiting Behavior (SLB):
Apply self-coaching techniques to a self-selected, self-limiting behavior. This brings the concepts and techniques to life via practical hands-on experience.

➤ Improve Attention Management:
Utilizing increased control over your attention, cultivate the ability to focus when needed and, perhaps more importantly, to notice when it has “wandered off” and needs to be “brought back.”

➤ Increase Emotional Intelligence (Self-Awareness and Empathy): By paying more focused attention to one’s own internal state, self-awareness will expand. Becoming more self-aware of behaviors, stories, and feelings, empathy for the perspectives and feelings of others is also likely to increase. Practicing self-compassion often leads to more compassion with others.

➤ Enhance Interpersonal Relationships:
Understand how mental stories can negatively impact relationships to nurture and manage relationships with more awareness and objectivity.

➤ Improve Decision Making:
Learn to make conscious/aware decisions in the moment and not succumb to habitual/reflexive responses. Note the old adage that, “You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control how you respond.”

➤ Improve the Ability to Coach Others:
Learn self-coaching skills to not only share those techniques with others, but also to be more fully self-aware, live by example and be more articulate in coaching others.

➤ Improve the Ability to be Coached:
Develop a mindset and framework for requesting and being open to feedback and coaching.

“We are positioning CYSU as an innovative foundational component of our approach to Career Development. What could be more helpful to any employee than learning to see where their behaviors are getting in their way and giving them tools to address that?” ~ Rich Jacquet, CHRO, Gigamon

Self-Awareness is Key

The focus is on three areas: our attention (or lack thereof), our self-limiting behaviors, and the stories we tell ourselves that shape our experiences.

Psychology & Science

The methods are built upon strong foundations of psychology, neuroscience (most notably our brain’s malleability), and behavioral science.

Powerful in its Simplicity

A simple three-step framework called ‘The Self-Coaching Path’ can be utilized by participants for the rest of their lives.
