Power Your Tribe: Create Resilient Teams in Turbulent Times1st Edition
By Christine Comaford
Foreword by Marshall Goldsmith
PART I: What Happens Inside When Change Happens Outside
1. How Human Beings Experience the World
We decide whether an experience is “good” or “bad,” and the meaning we assign to our experience creates and reinforces our identity, beliefs, capabilities, and behavior.
2. The Three Things All Humans Crave
Resilient teams have three key ingredients: safety, belonging, and mattering.
PART II: The Power Your Tribe Playbook: Learn to Love Change
3. Release Resistance
To shift your state and create choice, we’ll find your starting point. Resistance reinforces the Present State, which is where the problem is. Learn how to release resistance so you can have more choice.
Tools: Emotion Wheel, Maneuvers of Consciousness, Outcome Frame
4. Increase Rapport with Yourself
To live in a state of emotional agility more consistently, we need to build certain mental muscles of self-awareness. We do so by increasing emotional rapport with oneself and stilling the constant chatter of our mind.
