Michael Diettrich Chastain, a professional coach, trainer, and consultant dedicated to peak performance, believes that self-discovery has positive effects in a business setting and that change in the workplace doesn’t have to be a frustrating, drawn-out process. In this interview, Michael talks about influencers of success and the acronym he came up with to explain them, CHANGES, which is also the title of his upcoming book.
This Sales Expert Interview covers:
Avoiding change in the workplace
- A lot of people resist change in the workplace because their personal lives are already so hectic. There is room for having structure and routine, but our ability to be flexible is a valuable skill as well.
Being more adaptive
- The more integrated we can become with the various aspects of our lived experiences, the more effective we are at change management.
Key indicators of success
- Very few people understand what to look for to know whether they are on the right path for success. Know what is influencing you at the moment.
- We can have a number of elements in our favor, but there might be just one thing lacking we don’t realize.
Fear of success
- The fear of success can be more debilitating than the fear of failure. Self-sabotage can be subconscious.
- This is a flexible characteristic that can be developed and there are many characteristics under this umbrella.
- There are a number of strategies and tools to help discover this. Michael talks about a few of them.
Focusing on what is important
- There are many ways to deal with high-stress situations in the moment, but daily proactive intervention is more effective.
Nurturing your spirit
- Have the courage to evaluate your beliefs and whether they are serving your goals.
