As you seek to enhance your effectiveness, it’s important to look back on your life and understand how key experiences, people, and events have impacted your habits and patterns of thinking.
Reflect on three time periods:
- The past 1-3 years.
- When you transitioned from school into the workplace.
- Your earlier years.
How have these experiences, people, and events shaped your thinking? How do they impact how you “show up” in the workplace?
Do your tendencies tend to be constructive and creative? Or are they reactive and destructive?
