Following on our conversation about Strong-Ties, we need to understand that it is actually possible to have developed Strong-Ties that are destructive, resulting in personal or professional derailment, or at minimum, impeding your progress toward the success you have envisioned. These ties may be more accurately described as Strong-Holds. These negative or destructive Strong-Holds will have to be untied, in order for you to rebuild toward your goals. Some of those destructive ties, such as poor attitudes, habits, negative conditioning and poor self-image can hold us equally firmly in our failure and lack of effectiveness. Someone once said that the chains of bad habits are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken. The reality is that they can actually be harder to break free from than the more positive habits are to incorporate. Remember, I said hard, not hopeless.
Whether you are at the beginning of your leadership journey, facing a new challenge, picking up the pieces after a devastating experience or breaking free from negative Strong-Ties, our purpose is to help you identify and develop the Strong-Ties that will serve as Anchors on your journey to success.
