Blog 55 …. Confidence to communicate without fear and dread

I have just finished an Empowerment Hour with a fab group of people who work in Knowsley.

They had such a great attitude to what I had to say and we flowed with the spirit of the “training session” All learning from each other.

That is my kind of teaching…. where we are all the teacher, I literally was just the instigator of the next conversation.

It must be so great working with people everyday that are empowered and upbeat. Imagine how it would feel to go to work knowing that your team of colleagues are all on your side… Oh hang on the Navy was just like that.

Your day started with a brew and banter and then all day long we skitted each other and had fun. We shared problems and got the jobs done.

This team were very much like that. I thought it was really refreshing how they all laughed together and what struck me the most was they had confidence to confide.

This confidence to communicate on a personal level did not distract from their professionalism but enhanced how they could work together. With a full understanding of how people were feeling.

We all have ups and downs and life can be really tough at times, but I know that when we have a Team around us who support us through thick and thin we know that just because today it is “us” who has the down day, it may well be someone else tomorrow. Nothing lasts forever.

That’s not to say that we can dwell on our sorrows at work – but it gives colleagues an opportunity to uplift and help out if required, rather than them wondering why their team mate is in a “mood”.

Good communication really is the key to success. When we really learn that it is ok for us to share our feelings and know that we are in a safe place and still respected/, we are on to a winner.

This group are led by a person who manages with compassion and that’s why they have this strong ability to share, I am sure of it. A great leader at the helm will encourage and promote confidence.

I applaud their courage.

I love their attitude.

I want to work there. !!!

So here’s to you guys and your brilliant attitudes.

Keep up the good communication – Keep communicating and Caring :)

  1. How life sustaining Gill, to be able to confide knowing you are heard, understood and supported with Compassion. True team spirit. I work from home, I’m part of the team, but remotely, it can be lonely, but I’m gradually emerging from my shell connecting more consciously from the heart via email and am grateful to have great friends like you and some great female friends I’ve recently met here. Uprooting from the heart of my community to here in California has been quite a journey, all my roots dangling and quivering! I knew who I could trust back home, trust takes time to build in a new place when you’re the “new (old!) kid on the block” you are vulnerable because you don’t really know who you are dealing with – neither do they! not everyone is heartcentred, you have to open your heart bravely but use your intuition and discernment. Time, and experience, and confidence… which can only come from a calm center. Sometimes I think I’d like to work amongst a team, especially if I could find likeminded people, but I think I’d feel overwhelmed by it to be honest! 10 years in a large insurance company head office in Liverpool was enough for me to know that’s not my ideal environment! Maybe a yoga center…..!
