How are you responding to Brexit?
I have been speaking with a number of clients over the last week and the key message that seems to be coming through is:
A significant amount of fear is influencing people’s current behaviour as a reaction to Brexit.
As a very proud Welshman, I am delighted with the progress and also the character of the Welsh football team. The manager Chris Coleman summed it up nicely as how to deal with fear:
“What is fear? Fear to me is put into people from outside influences and you spend so much time concentrating on what you don’t want to happen, rather than on exactly what you want to - believe in it and go and do it. If mistakes come they come. The message to our players has been no fear, express yourselves, enjoy it…”
That got me thinking about a well-known truism - people who react to the world are rarely in control of their careers, yet those who respond and adapt create opportunities and develop.
So are you reacting or responding to Brexit?
Tools that will help develop overcome fear and thrive post Brexit
This is how we learn throughout life, as children this is how we learnt to walk – lots of unsuccessful attempts first.
These feelings will come back to you, you can then use these resources to maximise your chance of success in your new situation.
Do you need help to define your post Brexit strategy to make your career even more successful?
