Potápění - kdo jste se ponořili poprvé pod hladinu, pamatujete si své první nesmělé nádechy, zvuky jako z jiné planety, tělo jako šponu?
Měla jsem obrovskou radost, že dýchám a vidím a slyším ve vodě! S vervou sobě vlastní jsem se pustila do objevování jiného světa a nebylo to už tak úžasné, jako „poprvé“. Pohybovala jsem se jako tryskomyš, rychle jsem kopala a máchala rukama, lítala nahoru dolů, jak jsem dýchala hodně a neřízeně. Když jsem už něco viděla, byla to opravdu hodně velká stvoření, která mě spíš přišla do cesty, než abych je objevila sama. Pořád jsem utíkala skupině, jak jsem nemohla stát na místě a nervózně je popoháněla. Došel mi tak za půl hodiny vzduch a musela jsem nahoru. Se mnou buď můj naštvaný buddy nebo i ještě naštvanější celá skupina. Shrnuto – viděla jsem skoro nic, strachy jsem málem umřela a nikdo se mnou nemluvil. Ale přežila jsem a nevzdala jsem se. Postupem času jsem se naučila dodržovat pár zásad, které z ponorů do jiné galaxie udělaly naprosto odlišný zážitek. Navíc jsem zjistila, že jejich dodržování je velmi užitečné i „na suchu“, v osobním životě, v mé práci s klienty.

In our life, we basically exist in to "systems" - in family and at work.
We recognise them according to different needs that we satiisfy thanks to them. The problem occurs, when we start mixing these two systems together. 

The place in family is for good. No matter whether we are in contact with other members or not.
Ther will aways be somebody, who will remember that strange aunt Monica, who used to travel to foreign countries and taste odd meals in the street.
The basic need that familysatisfies is "to love". It means being accepted and showing love to others.

Head or heart? Opposites or partners?

I keep hearing that emotions do not belong to work. Or that "it is important to stay calm." Or "Keep on going, you can make it!

When is the right time to start thinking abut this saying?

  • when I feel sick just when thinking that I have to go to work tomorrow morning again
  • when I keep accepting more and more "challenges", never refuse anything so that I am afraid to stop
  • when I explode on the first try when approaching an unlikeable colleague
  • when "they are lazy so that I have to keep rushing them and checking up on them" until I drop from exhaustion
  • when more and more of my relationships are collapsing and I better not expect anything nice from anybody
  • when I am scared of losing my job
  • when they keep tightening the noose around my neck and limitig my decision space, even though I am the boss
  • when I am actually doing fine - I have a great position, money, loving wife, smart and happy children and still I am not satisfied
  • when I lack the purpose of my life
  • when I don't know how to decide

I could continue like this forever. Here I have put together just random questions, which we try to answer with my clients. Intelligent, succcessful, experienced people are asking these questions.
They were considering them from all viewpoints and never got any further. It is because they drew information just from one part of their "information source - transmitter", which is their head or mind.

To get further inspiraton, we learn how to "fine tune" other transmitters we have – our body and emotions. Emotions do not arise in our heart, they are the result of body reactions and found answers…
"How does it make me feel, when my stomach aches? Why do I feel sick?"
An answer can be: "I'm afraid of losing my job", "I am anxious because they will want something from me again."
The "head" or mind helps to translate the "broadcasting" into understandable language. Without it, we wouldn't be able to find the answer to our key question: "What is it that I really need?"

Body - mind - emotions are basic transmitters we always have available.
Body and emotions = heart and mind = head. Only by combining them and understanding their "broadcasting", we can get information that will help us find the answer to our needs and choose a reaction. Not that the reaction chooses us.

Being fine tuned means staying curious and at the same time courageous in listening and openness. What do I get? Satisfaction and fulfillment in everything I do. Because you need both head and heart to be successful.

What is trust? I immediately think of safety, respect and confidence. In a relationship. Trust something or somebody but mainly ourselves. The old Norse meaning of the word was "help, confidence, support, protection". To be confident in myself, my skills and my work. To trust means not to doubt. To believe/trust someone that we will find a consensus and that it will be like this forever.

Trust pays. To trust means to act quicker and with less costs. S.R.Covey gives a great exampe showing the situation in air passenger traffic before and after the September 11th attacks. Before them, we could run to the airport just before departure and within 40 minutes we were mellowing out on the plane. After the attacks, we have to count with a  time reserve of at least 2 hours (3-4 hours when flying to the USA), in order to go through all the security procedures in time and even manage to departure. There is more staff, equipment and the whole handling process has become radically more expensive. Lack of trust as well as doubts are time consuming and pricy.

What?!? The coach is giving me advice(!!!) and what's more - to be Selfish?

Summer, holiday time. Finally you are on the plane. You are takig off from your homeland and they re bothering you with safety instructions. Stewardesses, the beuties, who never lose their charm, let it be with a limp yellow vest around their neck. Astonished, you are watchng the perfectly trained gestures and ... what's this? I shall put the osygen mask on myself first, THEN on my baby?!? What's this nonsense? I first want to protect my near and dear.. Wrong! If you pass out, who will help you? A teenager perhaps, but a child of four?
