The key skill I want my clients to develop is to use the right brain and the left brain in the correct way. Contrary to myth it is not the left brain that creates most problems but the right.
The right side gives us intuition, creativity and the 'big picture'. Wrongly used it conjures up delusions, crap thinking and the 'wrong picture' - the main reason why people get stuck.
The left side gives us analysis, problem-solving and decision-making. It is clever, grounded and thorough. But it only really works well when it is powered by the genius that resides on the right side. Otherwise it will just keep churning outworn ideas that belong to some half-forgotten issue from the past.
When I coach you I want you to develop both sides of your brain:
Creativity and Common-sense
Intuition and a Search for the facts
The Big Picture and the Fine Detail
Gut feels and Hard Judgments
In-box and Out-Box thinking
The Deeper Purpose and the Next step
Since nearly all obstacles to success are created by wrong work of the mind I coach my clients incessantly until they can automatically dismiss limiting thoughts and engage their attention on more important tasks.
