Break Behavior Boundaries that Waste Time and Energy
Dr. Sylvia Lafair, President of Creative Energy Options (CEOinc), a business consulting company joins Enterprise Radio to how career coaching can help change outdated behavior patterns and move to optimum results.
- How did you begin to research the importance of looking at behavior patterns at work?
- Lots of companies offer leadership and coaching programs, what sets your organization apart?
- What kind of reception did you get when you first started to coach business folks around breaking old behavior patterns and is there any data to back up why this is so important?
- What are the specific behavior patterns that show up at work and how universal are they?
- How does knowing about your habits and patterns make the workplace psychologically safe and why does this really matter anyway? Are employees being coddled with all this emotional stuff and shouldn’t we just get our work done and go home?

Before embarking on a journey into leadership development, Sylvia established a highly respected personal growth center in Philadelphia where she taught powerful relationship skills to thousands. One day a light bulb went on when working with a corporate leadership team, and it became clear that the behavior learned in our original organization, the family is what we bring to our present organization at work: bosses can be like parents, co-workers like siblings, salaries like allowances, and even time outs like performance improvement plans. And when stress hits the hot button at work, it activates ingrained, outdated behaviors from childhood creating workplace drama that undermines productivity.
