I hear some variation of this from my clients on a regular basis. They’ll come to me upset and angry at somebody else, usually a family member or their boss. And they’re thinking some version of, “They think I’m an idiot, they don’t trust me, and they don’t respect me.”
Making assumptions about what other people are thinking and feeling is something we all do, whether consciously or subconsciously. And this is especially the case when it comes to their feelings and thoughts specifically about us. But this line of thinking is not serving you or anyone else, so we’re taking a look at what you can do to get out of other people’s brains and fully into your own so you can get back to doing an amazing job!
As much as we wish we were, we are not mind readers, so tune in this week to discover why we get stuck in unhelpful thought loops when trying to get in other people’s brains, and what you can do to get yourself out of there.
If you can’t get aligned or on the same page, don’t give up. Try this simple framework, my Same Page Leadership Framework instead.
What You Will Discover:
- How we spiral into thinking about what other people think about us.
- Why your thoughts about what someone else is thinking are causing you pain and why they’re simply not factual.
- How to dig a little further, get into your CFO brain, and see these thoughts for what they really are.
