Managing Yourself | Succeed in New Situations

“For most of the executives and students I coach, the difficulty isn’t in understanding how to introduce themselves, ask questions, or recall names. It is in fighting natural biases against social risk and changing lifelong habits. Real progress comes only through mindful reflection and practice. Be patient but committed, and remember that as you become more confident with introductions, names, and questions, you’ll set yourself up to be more proactive and effective at all the other skills required to be a successful newcomer at any event, office, or organization.” – Keith Rollag, Associate Professor at Babson College
