PCM-Process Communication Model®

be better with PCM®

What’s PCM®? A.k.a. Process Communication Model®. As I wrote previously, I have a very good personal relationship with PCM®. As all good relationships, this too started off on a rocky road. But the more I saw myself through the lens of PCM®, the more I started to love it. Based on my personal experience, I […]

COACHING or MENTORING

coaching mentoring

COACHING or MENTORING? … about who’s who Coaching is knowledge, mentoring is experience. Seeing that written down, I myself can see, that it’s not really obvious, what the difference might be, but let’s try to figure it out anyhow. I say coaching is knowledge, because without previous experience, you can go to a formal coach […]

SUCCESS

a siker útja the road to success

SUCCESS … about why goals fail I previously wrote about goals and the specificity required to chart out a strategy around them. This is enough to set them, but it is hardly enough to achieve them. While most spend the beginning of the year planing, setting goals, I like to spend it in retrospect. Why? Because […]

GOALS

célok, goals

GOALS … about slicing the elephant People basically have one problem (let’s pretend that’s true)… We prefer to be pretty much everywhere, except in the here and now.

I was doing some research on the topic of burnout and I have come across the most interesting timeline in the history of psychology (probably not, but still…). We all know Zimbardo’s Stanford experiment. Turns out, the findings during […]

FREEDOM

… about the art of not doing “No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it is not the same river, and he’s not the same man”— said Heraclitus, one of the greatest pre-socratic philosophers of ancient Greece. This simple truth is so beautiful in itself, that it is hard to accept the […]

CLOCKWORK

… about the way we sometimes tick Usually we are all well balanced, mature individuals, in full control of our actions, choices and behaviour. We are well rested, content, with our batteries fully charged and energised, ready to face all challenges that the world might throw in our face. We are untouchable, unstoppable and nothing […]

The ID and the EGO

The ID and the EGO … about how the mind wanders A few days back I participated in a workshop, where the trainer presented the Dilts pyramid. Seeing the ID at the top of the pyramid, I started wondering what the pyramid would look like, if at the top would be the EGO. It must […]
