Strategies to break out of a NEGATIVE EMOTION Spiral!!  Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

Strategies to break out of a NEGATIVE EMOTION Spiral!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

April 14, 2021

The challenge with the so called negative emotions such as anger, fear, sadness, shame, guilt, anxiety, depression and so on – is that they often cross over from a normal functional range that we all experience during the course of a day or week, to a more intense level that tends to last longer. Maybe a few weeks or a few months. 

In such situations, the brain’s neural circuits get caught repeating the same unhelpful thoughts which in turn trigger these negative emotions.. this is called rumination, and because the brain’s circuit gets stuck going in the same loop, this situation tends to last weeks or months and has an impact on activities of daily living and life as a whole. 

So, in our conversation today, let’s talk about some whacky strategies that can support you to get out of this funk.. And, if you’re a coach or counselor you can use these strategies to support your client in their healing journey.

Create Psychological Safety to build YOUR High Performance Team!!   Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

Create Psychological Safety to build YOUR High Performance Team!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

April 8, 2021

Psychological safety is the what your team members experience at the workplace, because you make each member feel that they can be heard … and you welcome their input.        

…in such teams, studies demonstrate increased creativity and productivity because of the higher levels of trust and confidence that each member feels.

One of the ways that a team leader creates psychological safety with the members of his team is having coaching conversations that are specifically designed to make the team member feel heard and respected.

The questions that we discuss in this episode are designed to do this. You can have one conversation which you include as many questions that you see are appropriate OR you can make a few of these questions a part of all your meetings.

OFFICE POLITICS!! Smart Strategies to Navigate Effectively Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

April 6, 2021

When it comes to office politics, many of us shy away from it because it seems to have a negative connotation.

In our minds we think of backstabbing, playing underhand games, hypocrisy, lack of trust, gossiping and so on.  No one is open to say, I love office politics and I’m good at it.. yet, there are so many who become part of it… knowingly or unknowingly.. willingly or unwillingly.

So, in our conversation let’s understand what’s behind this term and how to manage office politics.

Future Proofing CAREER n Life SUCCESS! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

April 5, 2021

None of us can deny that the last one year has disrupted nations, economies, industries, companies, and our individual lives. We’ve had to look at every aspect of how we live and work. Many sacred beliefs and traditions about how we do things, and how businesses need to be run have been reset because we’ve discovered that life goes one without them… in new ways!

So, in our conversation today, let’s talk about somethings that we need to think about as lessons learned; and our focus is on how we can apply these learnings into the coming 3 years or more.

These insights are drawn from research, and more importantly from the life stories of my coaching clients and my own family. Please feel free to adapt these ideas to work for you and your job, business, and family and life.

DELEGATION: Your key to successful leadership!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

DELEGATION: Your key to successful leadership!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

March 31, 2021

Every leader – whether it is a first-time team leader or a senior executive at the Director, VP or CXO level is interested in increasing her or his productivity and effectiveness as a leader.

One way that is often overlooked or treated without much intention is the leader’s ability and willingness to delegate important tasks to direct reports. Research shows that leaders who delegate effectively can increase their effectiveness at work by as much as 30%.

So, how can You – as a leader - increase your own effectiveness and productivity dramatically? The answer is: yes, you need to learn – or perhaps RELEARN – to delegate.

And, this is our goal in today’s conversation.. to learn to explore what might be blocks within ourselves as leaders that hinder effective delegation; and then explore strategies to overcome these blocks. Since research demonstrates the effectiveness of leaders who delegate, why not you and I start applying these strategies to gain the benefits for ourselves?

Developing INFLUENCE at your Workplace! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

Developing INFLUENCE at your Workplace! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

March 30, 2021

Most leaders are effective at leading their teams and all the people in their own businesses because they rely on the power that comes from their place in the organizational structure. Many of them depend on command and control model, authority structures, and chain of command to have their ideas and instructions followed. However, once these leaders reach senior levels, they need to develop another skill as part of inventory to succeed as senior executives. And, this is the skill of influence.

So, the goal of our conversation today is to give you some ideas and insights on how you can start becoming a leader who carries influence with internal and external stakeholders that matter to you.

These ideas may sound simple; however, the magic happens when you make it authentic so that they become part of who you are and you practice them consistently because they are integral to who you are as a person and leader. It’s not possible to switch influence on or use it only when you need to on certain occasions, that’s not what I mean by being a leader of influence.

Are you being GASLIGHTED at Work??  Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

Are you being GASLIGHTED at Work?? Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

March 29, 2021

Gaslighting is psychological manipulation in which a person or a specific group secretly sows seeds of doubts in a targeted person, or undermines their credibility, or erodes the targeted person’s confidence in himself/herself. This way of interacting with the targeted person makes the targeted person question their own judgment, or memory, or understanding.

Gaslighters can be a manager or a senior co-worker, or even an angry customer or colleague. And, the gaslighter can target a particular individual or a specific group. What makes this so dangerous and damaging is that it can be done camouflaged in humor or with a patronizing attitude, or with a false façade of being concerned for the targeted person.

It can be done in sweetness, but the sweetness contains poison.

In our conversation today, let’s understand some aspects that can help us understand gaslighting in the workplace!  As you listen to these factors, please check that you are not subjecting someone to gaslighting. And, be alert that you are not a victim of it.  Also, check if you are not part of a coterie that is gaslighting someone.

Dealing with SETBACKs in Life!!  Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

Dealing with SETBACKs in Life!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

March 29, 2021

All of us have to deal with setbacks in our life. Some of these setbacks are minor e.g. deadlines that can’t be met, plans cancelled, finances not coming through and so on.

For sure, there is an impact because of these setbacks, but they are not life threatening nor do they destroy you at a deep emotional level.

And, then there are setbacks which are more serious or intense. This could be loss of a loved one or a breadwinner in the family, a chronic disease such as cancer, or the loss of property or business, a job and so on.  These setbacks have a much larger and deeper impact; they are harder to bounce back from; and they leave a deep emotional scar.

Our goal in today’s conversation is to share wisdom that that will encourage you to strengthen yourself to deal with setbacks before they come so that you can cope with them effectively; and if you’re currently struggling through a setback, then my prayer is that you will be encouraged by our talk to get back on track at earliest possible time.

COACHING Strategies to help your clients achieve their GOALS!!  Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

COACHING Strategies to help your clients achieve their GOALS!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

February 2, 2021

When it comes to setting goals, all of us know about SMART goals or setting BHAGs. We are conditioned to set goals that are big, inspiring, and that are supposed to scare yourself or scare others.

Most of these beliefs have a feel good factor about them especially if you share them on social media or talk about them within your friends circle.  Even as coaches we encourage our clients to set goals that fuel their ego or ours..

While it’s easy to get energy from inspiration, the difficulty is maintaining the perspiration!!

So, today, let’s talk about how we can make setting and attaining goals more realistic. This is even more important if you are a leader or a Coach, because this is where our stakeholders will need some balance to their exuberance… so that they can move into implementation zone and not just stay stuck in inspiration!!
