Peace & Quiet

Last Sunday my wife and I spent the day at the Scandinavian Spa in Whistler. It was an amazing experience. And the best part for me was the "silence" piece (of course!) 

I appreciated how they value and understand the power of silence. There were "silence" signs literally everywhere. And what is interesting is that the guests respected that.

I was telling my wife I wish we have these signs all around the city! :D Wouldn't that be awesome?

The following passage is from their website: The value of silence - β€œIn the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness." Silence is a source of great strength. We believe silence is essential to the experience of the Scandinavian baths. By embracing silence one finds inner stillness leading to complete relaxation.

Introvert-Extrovert Spectrum

Do you know where you fall on the introvert-extrovert spectrum? Are you oriented more towards the outer world or the inner world? Do you get more energy when you are around people or by yourself?

The more preference you have towards stimulating environment the more extroverted you are and vice versa. 

Whether you fall in the extrovert or introvert category (or somewhere between), it can have a significant influence on your career choice, relationships and overall lifestyle. 

One type isn't "better" than the other. Each tendency can have benefits and drawbacks depending on the situation. By better understanding your personality, however, you can learn how to play to your strengths.

Quiet Leadership Workshop

It has long been believed that the natural leaders of our society were the extroverted types, those that were outspoken, bold and assertive.

But you don't have to be LOUD to be a great leader.

A full 40% of executives describe themselves as introverts, including Bill Gates, Marissa Mayer, Guy Kawasaki, Wendy Kopp and Mark Zuckerberg. Contrary to popular opinions, introverts, not just extroverts, have the skills to lead in a fast-paced extroverted business world.

Extroverted leaders have gotten a bit too much good press, to the point that excellent introverted leaders are increasingly overlooked. You can be an impactful leader by being soft-spoken, quiet and gentle.

Key topics covered in this workshop

  1. Expose quiet leaders myths
  2. Steps to build on your quiet strengths
  3. Tips on how introverts and extroverts work together more effectively

Conscious Business for Introvert Solopreneurs Workshop

Last day of the "Conscious Business for Introvert Solopreneurs" 7 day workshop! 

I had a fantastic time with these talented coaches, counsellors and therapists. It was so energizing seeing the evolution of their business ideas.

We went through the Conscious Business for Introvert Solopreneurs 4-step program:

STEP 1 UNCOVER: the group examined and explored their values and strengths. Created their Why, How and What.

STEP 2 CREATE: built a business plan based on what was uncovered in STEP 1. Which included their services, niche, USP, fees, KPIs among other key elements.

STEP 3 COMMUNICATE: created strategies and tactics on how to communicate their unique and authentic message that is based on their values and purpose.

STEP 4 MAINTAIN: learnt about how to monitor the business progress and KPIs and how to quickly tweak and adapt when necessary (which is inspired by The Lean Startup Model)
