Patterns. They drive every aspect of our personal and professional lives whether we're aware of them or not.

You can spot them in nature, business, relationships, games, stock market movements, and anywhere else you carefully look.

And behavioral patterns directly impact your career. (Behavioral patterns are a series of interactions that recur in different settings, with different people, with similar outcomes.)

Here’s a scenario that you may have experienced or observed yourself…

I'm not happy at work. My supervisor doesn't value my opinion. I think she's even trying to sabotage my chances of being promoted.

Have you discussed this with your boss?

No! I’m thinking about finding a new job and won’t have to deal with her anymore.

You’re thinking about leaving you job because of this? Have you experienced a similar situation with other supervisors in the past? Is this a pattern?

After a few moments of silence…Yes. Is it me? Am I causing this?

Let’s talk about that

Recognizing the patterns in your life and career are where breakthroughs happen.

What can follow is deep coaching about your role in the pattern and strategies to achieve more positive outcomes. And once you achieve pattern awareness, you can anticipate outcomes and take greater control of your career.

What patterns do you see in your life or your company? Which are positive and which are holding you back?
