In Episode 11 of Season 2 Arthi has a motivating discussion with Cheryl Czach about how powerful the YES Mindset is not only for ourselves but others too.
Cheryl started off with an unconventional career path, where for example, college was not in her path after graduating from high school. Instead she started working, got a part time job in an office as a receptionist and was offered the opportunity to train in accounting and join the accounts department. She said yes to it and that led to another opportunity, a little while later to be in the HR function, where she realised she loved it and wanted to grow her career there. Digging into this allowed her to study for Bachelors and MBA, in her 30s. She became VP of a tier 1 automotive firm and elevated her career into the senior exec level, overseeing many different functional areas that she knew nothing about but had a willingness to learn and try. None of these would have happened if she doubted her ability and that is the premise of the yes mindset, to be open to the potential opportunity, rather than stumble on the perceived challenge. She hares some of the practices and reflective questions to take on opportunities and reconnect with our instinct again.
Some wise words shared by Cheryl:
-“Yes is where the growth is.”
- “If I’m scared, if it makes me feel nervous, then I am on the right path.”
- “Take the opportunity, take the chance, go for growth.”
