Make the transformation
Are you struggling with transitioning your success as an athlete into success in your career? There are ways for you to experience a successful transformation.
It’s not about wearing your golf shoes to work or yelling, “four!” down the corridor. And if your golf game improves in the process, don’t be surprised, either. As in any sport, the way to improve is through informed practice. Improve your weak areas and rely on your strong areas. Plus, practice makes it permanent. Perfect practice makes perfect.
This means you’ll need to know specifically what to practice to improve your success at work. Do you have people who’ll tell you? Can you trust their feedback? Ask them what they think you should do more often or more consistently. What you might do less of or eliminate altogether?
If you think accessing a coach or psychologist is safer, you may also benefit from working with someone who wants you to succeed, confidential feedback sessions, and objective 360-degree assessments.
“What is leadership?” We’ll all be further ahead by inquiring about how to enhance leadership quality. Anton Counseling & Health Psychology is dedicated to advancing the art of leadership. Start by reviewing the following free resources if you’re thinking about what you can do to beef up or enhance your natural leadership abilities. The resources cover everything from controlling anger and dealing with grief to building up your “executive presence.”
If you desire a more accurate sense of self, especially your strengths and abilities as a leader, utilize proven and widely used instruments to explore blind spots and recurring problems that you may be missing or completely avoiding.
What is leadership?
Usually, someone has acquired financial success (but their acquisition could be power & position), and we want to know what they did to get it. We believe that “position” should be deferred to. Subsequently, we treat them with a degree of respect and deference. We allow them to make the first interpersonal move, feel like they’re in charge, and follow their lead. Our “desires” and our beliefs about their position create cooperation.
In the situation above, our beliefs and a desire to glean information and knowledge or even curry favor from them create the opportunity for them to influence and lead us. At this moment, they become a leader, someone with influence, at least with us.
However, the premise of this type of leadership is based upon our “lack” of power, finances, and desire to remedy our situation. But what happens when we do not lack power and financial resources, and our values and priorities focus on “quality of life” and “emotional satisfaction?”
We define a leader as someone with influence over us who changes when we change.
Leaders must have happiness and career satisfaction when we desire happiness; otherwise, they cannot lead or show us the way. And when we’re searching for a “culture of creativity and cooperation” for ourselves, we expect them to create a “culture of creativity and cooperation.” Otherwise, they would have little influence over us again. They’d have little more than money and security to offer, and when these are no longer our primary motivators, well. We require a leader of higher value.
When we – as leaders – finally realize that we are somehow “out of alignment” and that our ability to influence others is waning, we can be far from making “ideal decisions” and taking well-thought-out action. If you’re feeling stressed out, feel free to reach out. I’m here for you. Richard W. Anton, M.A., B.A., Dip Ed
Innovative companies know that long-term success requires a pipeline of visionary leaders who can help build and secure a competitive edge. “But what makes a great leader?” “How can I develop my vision?” Leadership Coaching prepares emerging leaders to become more effective influencers who can contribute to corporate success on a higher level. “It helps men and women to create an environment or atmosphere that others enjoy, and a workplace where they feel respected.”
This highly personalized coaching program features four in-person and virtual, self-paced modules that focus on accelerating your professional relationships and your career simultaneously. You will infuse your organization with more confidence and empathic capability and be equipped to take on new challenges.
Leadership skills training or leadership counseling. The choice is yours. Leadership skills training focuses on the soft skills a great leader depends on to understand others, create and maintain relationship bonds, communicate and forge meaningful direction in life, and perhaps most importantly, what thousands of employees say that they admire and respect in their leaders – Richard Anton, leadership coach.
Leadership counseling is more straightforward but even more complex. Counseling for leaders is highly personalized, gets at underlying concerns and troubling dynamics, and relieves the mounting pressures of professional life.
We are now offering In-person & Evening appointments.
Leadership Psychology will address your concerns. Please don’t let yourself feel bad if you are struggling with making a decision and sticking with it or feeling like you’re not the leader you could be. We can’t know what we don’t know, but once you do know, you’ll need to be responsible for what you know.
Procrastination doesn’t reflect that you aren’t a good person. Those among us whose daily mantra is something like “I do whatever I can get away with” are not the same as those who struggle, putting their best efforts forward to “lead by example” and “do what’s right.”
Consider a few questions to update your leadership:
- Consider a time when you effectively demonstrated successful leadership.
- Which are your favorite supporting skills? Why are they so valuable?
- What are your favorite skills for handling disagreement?
Sometimes a self-improvement project will help you get back on your “A” game. I can assist you. I’ll use only the best, one or more psychological assessments that remind you of your BEST strengths. Then you can deliberately utilize them daily, multiple times per day, and in various combinations and sequences, for different situations. These ideas might put you right back where you want to be.
Psychology and leadership
“Honestly, leadership is about continuously self-improving, digging deep, learning from every experience, and creatively bringing our best to every situation, we find ourselves in. Be optimistic and bring your best frame of mind, those thoughts and emotions most closely associated with the superior performances of your past. Of course, the skills are most obviously associated with the desired success or outcome.” Richard W. Anton
You’re already considered to be at the top of your game. Therefore, you’ve got to find ingenious ways of “building on what you’re doing” [Tiger Woods] to stay where you’re. I always share the importance of psychological “scenario-building with my clients.”
You don’t need to explain why you want leadership coaching – but you’re not alone in wanting to acquire better-coping strategies for dealing with a complex work environment. Controlling your emotional reactions, moods, and anxieties will likely be essential for expanding your process.
Want to feel in control again?
It may be less valuable to spend time worrying about what happened or how you got to this place than taking positive action. Worry less? People’s issues are just as important today as they’ve always been, maybe more so. So what’s changed? Perhaps there are more of us competing on this level, or people are more aware today than in previous generations. Become unbeatable. “Become the leader; the person you both admire and desire to become.” – Richard Anton.
When we cannot live in alignment with our true selves, we must spend energy attempting to deny and distort our experiences to make sense of a pervasive lack of happiness and personal fulfillment. This ongoing effort can go so far as to produce psychological states and conditions such as depression (Waterman et al., 2010).
Why is self-discovery so important?
Without a deep level of self-knowledge, we are at risk of being seen by those we lead as superficially applying techniques or acting in a way that we’ve witnessed in someone else, such as an aggressive older male in our lives, without thinking through the impact we have on those we need to influence and lead.
Our most important goal should not be to pursue externally derived symbols, like material wealth, but rather to develop a more realistic understanding of our strengths and limitations. We can avoid negative psychological states and self-actualize, feel contentment, and make better contributions to the world.
I would never ask anyone to change who they were at their core. I will take the opportunity to encourage you to explore and discover deeply hidden treasures. But the prize is never found, just lying around. It has to be studied carefully, sought out, and recovered carefully. This process takes time and patience. The time and patience that most people do not have or are not ready and willing to invest – Richard W. Anton.
“Great men and women know themselves. They know their strengths, weaknesses, faults and failings, flaws and defects, talents and abilities, needs and desires, hopes and dreams, potential and purpose. They weave a life of beauty and splendor from these pieces of knowledge. “Know yourself” is a character principle of legends, heroes, champions, leaders, and saints.” – Matthew Kelly.

#1 Motivator Causing People to Get Coaching
Before you do something difficult or impossible to come back from, make a confidential virtual appointment for yourself. When you sense the organization is reshuffling, it might be prudent to feel concerned. When you’re relatively new in your role, it’s reasonable to take action to expand your skillset’s depth and breadth.
Solve issues or develop who you are; one way lasts a lifetime.
You’ll begin your coaching program by talking about and clarifying your dreams, goals, and vision. Next, we’ll formally assess your strengths using a valid and reliable assessment. Each one of your coaching sessions provides you with a structure or process customized to you and your specific set of strengths and weaknesses. Secure your first online session by clicking here.
We’ll discuss the critical issues relevant to your unique circumstances during each appointment. These discussions will assist you in enhancing your most relevant skillset. Fundamental discussions involve questions such as how to motivate others, what makes a leader influential, what executive presence is, and how you can get it. But together, we’ll ensure you bolster the appropriate skillsets you utilize to make these happen.
Expect that you will improve your leadership through leadership coaching and, as a result, make better decisions and improve your impact. Every CEO prepares their organization to become – what they believe is – its best. You’ll have various opportunities to prepare yourself to become your best – the legend you are meant to evolve throughout your career. Let this time be one of those opportunities. I’m ready for you or your entire team.
Leadership research and theory have long emphasized the importance of so-called soft skills for leader effectiveness. Cherniss & Boyatzia
Do you want to become a better employee or a person at your best? You already know the value professional development can have for you. Professional development helps you identify and close knowledge gaps in your role, but ask yourself what the value will be for your team, family, and organization if you develop yourself. Consider what may or may not happen and the costs related to non-action.

“Quality of life is built by service, not by product. Quality of life improves by improving our ability with our existing skills more than by learning new ones. Service your life regularly.” – Richard W. Anton.
