Network & Learn – Taming your Mindset for Success: Keys to Becoming Calm, Focused & Profitable

January 17, 2017 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Meetup - Taming the Elephant - Jackie Simmons

Taming the Leadership Elephant: The Simple Key to Becoming Calm, Focused & Profitable

Are elephants eating your business alive? You know . . . those frustrating “elephants in the room” that you try to ignore but that are blocking your path to success. The confusion created by these untamed “elephants” can prevent you from jumping at highly lucrative opportunities that would be perfect for you. It can even drain the enthusiasm out of serving your current customers and dissolve the connectedness of any team.

There are all kinds of elephants: Overwhelm, Distraction, Anxiety, Feeling Stuck, Feeling Invisible – any one of them can derail even the most seasoned leader. The resulting worry can prevent you from approaching clients who actually want you and need you. But it doesn’t have to be this way. There is one simple key that will tame your elephants and calm everyone else’s.

Imagine having the focus and confidence to handle any situation. To not be afraid to ask for the sale. What would it be like if the familiar fear that holds you back from approaching high-ticket clients or disgruntled teammates was gone forever? That’s the power of taming elephants. The One Simple Key is what Jackie Simmons will be discussing at our January 17th, 2017 event.

Jackie Simmons has 30+ years of business consulting working with organizations as large as John’s Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and as diverse as solo-preneurs. Jackie says, “There’s nothing like being an entrepreneur/business owner to stir up an emotional mess. Being a single parent at the same time was like wrestling with an elephant.” The funny thing about this kind of (inner) elephant is that it was hard for her to see, but it’s impact was huge. Even though Jackie knew her stuff, the “elephant” would sit on her phone so she couldn’t make phone calls and it would distract her so she couldn’t focus & finish projects. It was through taming her own inner elephant that Jackie discovered the Inner Elephant Training System. A fast path out of overwhelm and self-sabotage to being calm, focused & profitable.
