Toronto, ON (PRWEB) January 5, 2007
Do your New Year's resolutions go in one year and out the other? On New Year's Eve, did you dream of breaking free and starting a new and exciting career in 2007? Or maybe you swore that this would be the year that you would lose weight, quit smoking or get out of debt. Well, how's it going so far?
How often do we say we really want to make a big fat change in our lives, so we set goals, make valiant efforts and then a few days or weeks later, find ourselves glaringly close to where we began? If it's true that "change is the only constant," then why do most of us struggle with it?
As an international speaker, coach and author, Peggy Grall developed her theories about change by observing and studying thousands of psychotherapy clients, as well as individuals and teams in business settings. She noticed that some people and teams handled change much better than others and set out to identify the process successful changers followed.
According to Peggy Grall's book "Just Change It!" "making a significant personal or professional change is doable, but exactly how to do it remains a mystery for most people." Peggy believes that those who fail to achieve their goals are probably standing in their own way. Her theory explores the link between personality style and change and carefully explains the predictable steps that successful changers follow.
Grall believes that personal style is the single biggest influencer to how people make significant changes. Her Change Style Index helps her readers to: (1) identify their personal change style, (2) work with their change strengths -- not beat themselves up for their weaknesses, and (3) create a doable change plan that becomes a map to successfully achieving any goal. "When you understand your personal change preferences and hot spots, you can work with -- not against yourself."
