With so much change and uncertainty in the world and the workplace today, it’s no wonder employees can’t see straight.
Without a clear vision of their power and potential, many will never have the confidence and courage to excel in their careers and take on leadership roles.
One way to inspire and empower employees to perform at their best is through creating vision boards. Last week, I presented a CRAVE Your Goals! and Picture This! Vision Board Workshop for 19 high-potential employees at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Mine was the capstone program after seven months of training, coaching and assessments. Participants created vision boards with images and words that reflected their goals and action steps.
Throughout next month, I will facilitate a virtual Better Balance Vision Board Workshop for hundreds of Kellogg employees throughout the world. It will help them put into practice what they learned in my Work-Life Balance Wisdom program that I presented in the spring. In November, I’ll facilitate a panel discussion at Kellogg headquarters on how the strategies and vision boards have helped them improve their work-life balance.
When I presented a vision board workshop to 75 high-potential women at Verizon a few years ago, they noticed another benefit. “In addition to the personal insights that came from Tricia’s program, our women bonded with each other and that will enhance our careers as we continue to work together.”
I’ve used vision boards throughout the years to help me accomplish many goals, including writing my “Working with Wisdom” and finding our family beach home. My current board supports my goals of speaking in every state and enjoying fun, physical activities. Oh, yes, I also want to write hit country songs!
Whether you’re in sales, operations or administration, everyone can benefit from harnessing the power of visualization.
- Help us become more focused, sort through all the possibilities, and set priorities.
- Program our reticular activating system (RAS), which acts like a spam filter for the brain. Our RAS makes us more aware of resources and opportunities so we can transform that vision into reality.
- Make it easy to communicate our goals and aspirations to others for support. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words!
If you have questions about how to create vision boards with your team or want to learn how I can work with your organization, contact me at 770-565-1231 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
I hope to hear from you. It’s on my vision board!
