Morale is low. Your managers are quitting or starting to have an attitude. Business is still looking good but nobody, including yourself, likes coming into work. Your executive team is stuck making another speach about “being all in” or “needing A team players”. But the same solutions and the same problems keep plaguing your organization. Your wondering how to motivate your team in a meaningful way.
You’ve tried each new book’s solution. You’ve tried hiring a new VP of Engineering. You’ve tried giving unlimited PTO. You’ve tried hiring new people. But no matter what you’ve tried, morale is low, people are angry and bitter, and everything feels repetitive.
I don’t promise quick fixes but I do promise real conversations with actionable steps. Burnout, compassion fatigue, work life balance, they are all a result of company culture and that all starts with you. We create a plan for your organization that is focused on smaller groups so your employees don’t just listen, they also share and feel heard.
The change starts with you and your executive team. Before a webinar for your employees ever starts, we spend time with just you and your executive team looking at your company’s values, at their core principles and looking at how their actions or lack of actions are contradicting those values. At the end, you’ll know what you stand for, how to show up in integrity, and how to encourage that in your company. Start the journey now, reach out.
Therapy is a place to get real and have a relationship that’s about seeing and hearing who you are, problems and pain included. This isn’t about minimizing what’s happening. It’s about moving through it so you can celebrate the opportunities.
Maybe it’s your too-demanding boss. Maybe your girlfriend doesn’t listen. But therapy gives you a place to explore and act on the idea that you can be your joyful self, no matter the circumstances.
You’re right, you can’t change the people in your life. But you can change. You can embrace who you are and what you need, and the people in your life will begin to change in relation to you. Therapy is the place to learn how to be in relationship and how to show up when the other person doesn’t change the way you want.
Biting your lip does keep the peace. That is true. But it also creates resentment, anger, frustration, and hurt. It slips out in other ways that put distance between you and the people you want to be closer to. Therapy provides space for you to share those problems and learn to build a closer relationship through sharing.
Recognizing our needs and emotions always creates a difference. Being able to state and imagine what you want and what you need in your life and in your relationships will shake things up. Let’s take this to the next level and ask what it would mean to fully show this side of yourself to your partner.
Having a full life is wonderful. But I have to wonder, are you showing up the way you want? Is it full of the people, and work, and love that you want? Do you really have the time to NOT come for therapy?
