Looking through the lens of self-awareness

Managing Triggers to “Armor Up”

The Frame is the lens through which we view the world, and it influences the choices we make and the actions we take. Understanding your Frame will help you show up as the best version of yourself and maximize your positive impact on others.

In order to do this, we need to tend to the SEE part of the Frame. How we SEE people/situations is most often run by our ego. Our ego is our filter on reality that leads us to please, perform, perfect and self-protect and keeps us from effectively collaborating and getting the results we want.

Being able to show up as a leaders requires being aware of when our thinking is serving us well and when it’s not. It’s about moving from Ego and self-protection to openness and self-reflection.

The Frame

  • The way we SEE things (our beliefs about situations, other people, and ourselves) affects how we FEEL.
  • How we feel (our emotions) affects what we DO (our behaviors & actions.)
  • What we do affects what we GET (the results!)
  • Lasting change doesn’t come from simply DOING things differently; it comes from SEEING or thinking about things differently

“If I continue to think as I have always thought, I will continue to act as I have always acted. If I continue to act as I have always acted, will continue to get what I have always gotten.” ~Marilyn Ferguson
