Motivating your TEAM – Practical Insights to support Performance!!

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-4ewmg-f887a0

Today, I’d like to focus briefly on a topic that nearly every team leader or group coach wants answers to.. and that is how do I motivate my team.

This could be your project team, if you’re a team leader, or a fitness group if you’re a group fitness coach.

A short answer is that there is NO magic answer or one size fits all formula…however, research points to some very helpful strategies that you can do and these go beyond giving a pep talk once a year or doing team building interventions..

How do I stay MOTIVATED??? Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-nbuzq-f885da

When we talk about making a change.. whether it is getting fitter, or learning a new skill, or dropping a habit or developing a new one, we all struggle with trying to understand how we can motivate ourselves to start the change and then to stick with the change.

Making a change…especially a personal change is a complex issue. We wish there was one answer, one formula or one theory that could explain all the nuances or give us the secret to make and stick with the change.

We also wish we had an answer to the question how can I motivate myself?  One of the reasons that there is soooooo much material on this subject is that there is NO easy answer or one solution that applies to each and every situation or to every person

So, our goal in this series on motivation is to gain insights and some practical tips that will help us stay on track with our own inner motivation with our personal change process.

The MAGIC Diet to help you lose WEIGHT immediately!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-pdk49-f77087

One of the questions that we all grapple with when looking at losing weight is which is more effective: exercise or diet?  Well, in theory both approaches can support your weight loss journey. The answer between which is more effective.. exercise or nutrition management is: the one that you can stick to!!

The essential formula to lose weight is that over a sustained period of time of a few months, the calorie intake must be less than your calorie expenditure.

That is you must expend more than you put in, so that there is a net calorie deficit.

Rather than tell you what to eat and what not to, or prescribe a specific diet, it’s more effective to incorporate some principles of healthy nutrition. Incorporate these principles in the way you manage your nutrition, and you’re on the MAGIC Diet!!

Start Your FITNESS Journey!! The 4 Questions YOU must begin with!!

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-hpd54-f7556f

Nearly each one of us would have made a new year resolution or set a goal to get physically fit this year. Well it’s coming close to the middle of the first month, so how’re you doing?

If you’re like me.. and so many of us.. .then we all make a great start and within a few weeks, the schedule and life catches up and things go back to the same old way.

Set ONE Resolution (goal) for 2021… GRATITUDE!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-umzba-f4784d

It’s almost end of the year, and it’s time to think about our RESOLUTIONS for the new year.. 2021!!  

Some of us would probably prefer to do some goal setting for 2021 because setting resolutions has a bad rap!!

Given that 2020 has changed the way the entire world operates, and has impacted the way we live and work, this is an appropriate time for us to re-start and re-boot for 2021.

Perhaps this year that is coming to an end will give us the humility and perspective that we may have lost; it will certainly help us look at what’s possible and what’s not with fresh eyes and a mindset that’s more flexible and open.

So based on my research in positive psychology, and my own fumbling experiments, here’s the No. 1 resolution / goal that I’m setting for myself and want to encourage you to do so too…

Use a TOMATO to help you stay focused!! Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-zswdy-f3428e

Do you struggle with procrastinating on tasks that need to get done? Especially, things that are important but don’t really give you a dopamine rush?  Examples include getting started on a report or project, doing documentation, wading through study material and so on…

And, if you’re like me, in addition to struggling with starting difficulties, I have a hard time staying focused and attentive on the task at hand. Being a digital addict, it’s only a few seconds – not even minutes – before my hand and eye wanders longingly to social media feeds or checking messages, hoping for a homeopathic dose of dopamine.

So, let’s talk about the Pomodoro technique and see how we can adapt it to make it work for you!

Develop a HOBBY!! Especially if you’re stressed, stuck, no time… Ajay Nangalia PhD PCC

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-txa3f-f34281

You are so overwhelmed and pressured between work and home, so stressed and possibly feeling so stuck, that it’s hard for you to even wait for a couple of minutes to listen to this important idea that I have to share.

And, the idea is that one way to find more time and balance, and energy, and feel less stuck, is to consciously and actively develop and pursue a hobby or hobbies.

Summarizing and distilling research data, the benefits of pursuing a hobby include: reduction of stress; developing a feeling of being in control of work life balance, and fostering creativity and innovation at work.    In addition, at a physical level, hobbies are shown to reduce blood pressure, increase satisfaction with life and work, and create a sense of belonging.

So, it makes sense to create time for a hobby.. Let’s talk about how you can do it!!
