Pat heard through the grapevine that he was negative and didn’t take direction well. After some soul searching he realized that he had unwittingly been undermining his efforts to land his dream role. And he decided to do something about it.
When we first spoke he didn’t know how to change his attitude or his reputation. We made an inventory of all the actions and comments that he felt contributed to a work situation.
Pat learned to be actively aware of being compelled to say or do something from this list. He used this new consciousness to redirect himself to present a positive image of himself to the world. Piece by piece he is rebuilding his reputation and becoming the person that he would like to be.
