On New Year’s Eve, millions of people around the world make solemn resolutions to improve their quality of life: exercise more, eat better food and take their job more seriously. Many of them even make it as far as the first steps. Yet, half of the people who buy a gym membership or an exercise machine never actually get down to doing exercise, and I am sure that the statistics of career-related New Year resolutions are not better either.
Why is change so difficult? After we decide to improve our life, work, or the life and work of others, why does it take so long to start implementing positive changes?
Breaking the Circle takes you into the challenging and often fascinating vortex of Vicious Circles - and than helps you get out of them. Whether it is an annoying overtime assignment or a stalled corporate strategy, people who get stuck experience similar downward spirals of helplessness and failures.
Getting out of such circles is a highly recommended skill that you are likely to use soon. Flip through these e-pages and become aware when you are actually in a Vicious Circle, identify the 'weak spot' and get out as soon as possible... Then help others do the same!
Whether it is time management, motivation, leadership, customer service or strategic management, you need to know how to stop running in circles and regain control of your work and life. See how others have got into their circles and eventually got out of it, in a wide range of business situations including:
• Procrastination: Why do I keep postponing urgent and important tasks?
• Overload: Why do I use my precious overtime to stare at my screen?
• Delegating tasks: Why don’t my people get anything right?
• Corporate vision and strategy: Why do people resist the right thing?
