Meredith Bronk Talks Coaching
When we say “we are your partners for people development,” our minds go straight to OST. Our work with their incredible company has unfolded over time like any good love story. It is our honor to partner with them to unleash the potential within their team. To give you an inside peek, we swiped this reflection from Meredith’s desk and just had to share it with you. (Okay, we are kidding. We asked permission first.)
Building Belonging in Leadership Development
Recently our team moved through an EOS process to name our core values- one of which is human.kind. We lean into this hard by remembering our own humanity, respecting the humanity of all, and offering compassion to ourselves and others along the way.
Practice over Perfect: The art of building confidence.
Hello friends and maybe strangers, but soon to be friends. In this video, Abbey Johnston and Kari Bergman dig into the messy & wild land of confidence. Abbey shows up with transparency and vulnerability – taking us on a journey of her own transformation from self-consciousness to confidence.
Good Gossip: A culture-building practice.
Gossip is a culture killer, for sure. But if done in an alternative way, your team will be well-served by integrating this new “good gossip” deeply into your team rhythms. Here’s the deal: We are often blind to our greatest strengths. The very distinctive qualities that make up our unique blend of human often go unnoticed or unappreciated, and thus undeveloped and underutilized.
WANTED: Courageous Leaders [Not Heroes]
For a long time, I assumed courage was reserved for comic books and activists. Conveniently, this assumption moved courage out of my reach and responsibility. The call to bravery and courage given only to the elite chosen few. After leading hundreds of people through the Dare to Lead™ program, I know I am not unique in this assumption. It is a hardwired belief for many. This belief, however, is wrong.
May you remember your resilience.
Pain is inevitable. It is part of life in human bodies. Our experience of pain and therefore, our experience of life is greatly impacted by our response to it. In each moment, we get to choose a path of resistance to our circumstances or open to the path that honors our resilience.
Weaving Love Into Work
References to “self-care” in popular culture are often actually pointing to self-soothing practices. Both are meaningful, and it is important we know the difference. Popular #selfcare ideas- bubble baths, candles, tea are self-soothers. They relieve tension, stress, or anxiety in the moment. True self-care, on the other hand, is long term habits that build our resilience against stress and burnout.
