21-Day Challenge – Day 21 – Creating a ritual to manage your personal energy levels

I hope you have enjoyed the 21-day challenge on managing your personal energy! As you could experience over the last 3 weeks, satisfying your own psychological needs is reinforced if you put consciousness and intention in it. Our personal energy increases which results in increased efficiency, more productivity and an increased well-being feeling.

Creating a ritual is a great structure that helps you to keep focus. It also expresses that this is something important. And it is. It is your personal energy level.

Be your own guardian angel of your energy!  Who else would take care of it? You simply can’t delegate this responsibility. 

  • 8895080_mWhat kind of ritual or structure would support you in keeping awareness on your personal energy?
  • How can you create a ritual that speaks to your personality architecture and really works for you?
  • How can you make your structure easy, light and fun so that you can integrate it in your daily life.

Day 21 of this challenge is not the end. This is the beginning …

With best wishes,

Nicole

21-Day Challenge – Day 20 – What happens if we don’t charge our batteries?

28441408_mWe’re coming to the end of our 21-day challenge and I’d like to take a moment to look at what happens if we do not charge our batteries. We loose leadership impact and set ourselves up for miscommunication and conflicts

Why is this? Based on the research done by  Dr. Taibi Kahler we know that if we do not get our psychological needs met in a positive way, we are unconsciously looking for ways to meet our needs in a negative way. Here’s what happens when the different psychological needs of the phase (*) are not met in positive ways:

  • A thinker with a psychological need of getting recognition for work and time structure, who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way through overcontrolling behavior
  • A persister with a psychological need of getting recognition for opinions and achievements who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through crusading and preaching behavior.
  • A harmonizer with a psychological need of getting recognition as a person and sensory needs who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through making silly mistakes.
  • A rebel with a psychological need of getting playful contact who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through blaming others for mistakes they made themselves
  • An imaginer with a psychological need of solitude who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through passive withdrawal – sitting and waiting, starting everything and not finishing anything.
  • A promoter with a psychological need of excitement who does not get his needs met in a positive way, will unconsciously look to get this need met in a negative way, which is through manipulating.

These are the 2nd degree distress behaviors which arise when we do not take care of our batteries and of our personal energy.  Leading from these 2nd degree distress behaviors is destructive as it damages relationships and we loose leadership impact. Communication from here is not possible as we are not in clear thinking modus, but in an unconscious predictable distress mechanism. Regardless of what happens in our lives, we are responsible for our own personal energy and for the impact we have on others. Charging your batteries with the PCM psychological needs is one powerful way to influence, manage your personal energy and keep your leadership impact positive and influential.

It is valuable!

Based on Research!

It works!

Feels good!

It’s fun!

and sparks your imagination!

If you haven’t joined a PCM seminar yet, come and join us! The next one is planned on October 29 till 31st. Contact me for details!

Which battery inside of you wants to be charged today?

21-Day Challenge – Day 19 – «Play, so you may be serious!»

In the 6th Century BCE, a Scythian philosopher Anacharsis said:

«Play, so you may be serious!»

This quote expresses in such a cool way how «PCM battery charges» work: if we charge our batteries well, then we have access to all other parts in our personality architecture and are able to live and to lead from our full potential. »

Making a statement like that, we can assume that Anacharsis was probably a rebel, or at least in a rebel phase. This means that he had a psychological need for playful contact. He must have experienced that if this battery is charged, he has access to his more serious parts (the persister or thinker parts).

12232119_mThis is the reason why taking care of our psychological needs – our batteries – is so important and vital.

Doing this, gives us access to all other positive parts in our personality architecture and opens the door to our full potential.

Our range to lead from becomes wider and more expansive!

 

There are only 6 psychological needs to take care of:

  • Playful contact
  • Recognition for work, achievements and time structure
  • Recognition for opinions, achievements
  • Recognition as a person and sensory stimulation
  • Solitude
  • Excitement

The importance and the intensity of what we need is different from person to person. You will notice that some have a bigger effect on you than others.

Fact is that through charging all of your batteries, you take influence on your personal energy in the best possible way to have access to all of who you are and release your full potential. This is extremely valuable for your sovereignty in your leadership as you are much more resilient. Coming from a positive energy place, you will have friendlier, easier and deeper relationships, you will communicate with more clarity the direction in which you want to go forward. Your life will be more energetic and fun and you will enjoy the moments of solitude to reflect on your high impact energy. All of these outcomes influence your leadership in a brilliant way.

As you could experience through the 21-day challenge, it’s easy and powerful. All it takes is just a moment of daily awareness and intention on how to charge which battery each day!

Keep charging!

Nicole

21-Day Challenge – Day 18 – Enjoying solitude

“I have never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude.”

Henry David Thoreau, Walden

 6378022_m

The imaginer part of us has a psychological need of solitude. For many people, it’s hard to imagine as they find it difficult to enjoy solitude.  Jean-Paul Sartre said: ““If you’re lonely when you’re alone, you’re in bad company.” Loneliness and solitude are 2 very different states:

  • Loneliness is a negative state which drains your energy and can lead you into distress and depression
  • Solitude is a positive state which gives you energy and a feeling of renewal.

Let us explore the blissful state of solitude and gain some new perspectives:

Solitude as a psychological need is a positive state of being alone, without feeling lonely. It is a rich inner state of being in relationship with oneself. A state where you are your own best company and more than sufficient. Feel the peacefulness and the richness in the state of solitude. Experience how renewing and energizing solitude can be.

We all have a need for solitude and the amount each of us needs to renew and recharge is different. This depends on where our imaginer is in our personality architecture and how much energy we have available.

Learning to enjoy solitude can be a process that

  • teaches you to truly value your own company and become your own best friend
  • leads you into deeper self-awareness
  • opens up space for reflection and inner work
  • helps you to gain new perspectives on topics
  • allows you to relax in deep reading a book
  • helps you get access to your creativity and your imagination
  • gives you deeper insights in situation

To lead a balanced life, we need to hold both needs of being in relationship with others and being in relationship with ourself.  The movement of engaging with others and then withdrawing and needing some space alone is natural and needed for healthy relationships. Like low-tide and high-tide in perfect harmony.

  • Can you enjoy solitude?
  • What opens up for you when you immerse yourself in solitude?

Find some time to withdraw over the weekend and immerse yourself in solitude!

Enjoy deeply!

Nicole

21-Day Challenge – Day 16 – Beautiful Thursday

Today, we’re nurturing our harmonizer parts by giving them special care and attention.

My harmonizer parts get easily charged by beauty.  A beautiful environment charges the sensory needs of my batteries in a powerful way.  Spending time in nature, a beautiful view, even looking at a beautiful picture.  The same happens in meeting rooms.  A meeting room with beautiful colors, a beautiful view or inspiring paintings on the wall, feeds my energy. If meeting rooms are cold and functional, they can drain my energy. The worst are meeting rooms without windows.

FotoTaking influence on our environment if we can, or carefully choosing it is an easy way to take care of this battery too!

You don’t need to “do” anything and you can charge your battery simply by taking in the beauty!

 

 

How sensitive are you to the impact of your environment?

  • Does your environment at home charge your batteries?
  • What about your work environment?
  • Where can you take influence and use the environment to charge your harmonizer battery?

Make it a beautiful day!

Nicole
