Tips on How to Get Mojovated

Photo Credit:veryjosie.blog.comThe time is now for our collective MOJO to be resurrected. There are constant references from writers, commentators and even the White House on the topic! Let’s get MOJOVATED!

During the spring, it seems especially pertinent to discuss and focus on how to make some career and life MOJO but also how to find it, keep it and use it moving forward.  Our opinion is that MOJO is unique to each individual and can be better accessed if we know our Passions, Strengths and Needs.  We use The Birkman Method® (as we have for over 20 years) in our coaching to focus the individual on ways to manage their MOJO and to use it to be more effective, energized and satisfied. 

In addition, the “science” of MOJO is deeply connected to symbols, rituals and myths.  We all have talismans and a special object that connects us and reminds us of what is important to us, what we value and for whom we care.   Take a moment to identify and examine your talismans and/or rituals that are the essence of your MOJO and use it to energize and center your actions with clear intention every day.

Sometimes we connect through music sometimes through smells (think home cooked meals) or maybe it is a color or a texture (spring flowers).

We often hear from individuals who are immersed in a de-MOJOVATED workplace and need support with a strategic plan.  We also hear from the solopreneur who needs daily motivation to fuel inspiration. In fact, it's times like these that are perfect opportunities to reboot and refresh. Here are a few suggestions for what to do to kick in mojivation:

 1.  Assess the situationknow what motivates you identifying your interests, articulating your strengths, discover what your environmental needs are and by managing yourGet some insights into your motivations by sampling the Birkman Method® assessment here.

 2.  Create an action plan - Establish clear goals and select the necessary resources you’ll need to take the first step. Decide on a time frame for completion of the goal. Identify the challenges that might de-mojivate you as well as the mojivators.

 3.  Communicate, communicate, communicate - staying mojivated requires reaching out and scheduling frequent opportunities for informal meetings with your supporting network.

 4.  Design a vision and future strategy – always be open to discovering opportunities for the futureAlways be designing your “next” opportunity as opposed to settling for the “best”. 

 So, be sure to take time to assess and reconnect with your MOJO.  Wherever you are, wherever you go, don’t forget to “stop and smell the roses”.

I help individuals, teams and organizations enhance communications and improve executive presence by providing strategies for management and leadership development, career growth, and work/life balance.

My expertise is helping women in transition give VOICE to their work and life. The acronym VOICE addresses Values, Opportunity, Individuality, Commitment and Empowerment. If you’re ready to get vocal and have a clear plan in place for your sales and marketing strategy, develop leadership skills, know who you are as a leader, then connect with WorkLife for Women and be heard.

Our core competencies in personal development use an array of assessment technologies to realign individual performance through an understanding of passion, and strengths and motivations.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with several individuals and organizations including The Columbus Dispatch, KBW Inc., Medical Mutual of Ohio, Nationwide Insurance, Nationwide Children's Hospital, New York Hospital/Cornell University Medical Center, NetJets, Yale-New Haven Hospital, The Ohio State University Department of Continuing Education, NARMS, The Limited, Pratt & Whitney, Make-A-Wish Foundation, and Action for Children.
