SUMO’s ‘Five to Thrive’

Nov 9, 2021 | TC blog

We were delighted that so many guests could join Paul’s webinar on Friday 5th November, providing such positive and useful feedback. As promised, here is a summary of what Paul covered and links to additional resources.

Your ‘Five to Thrive’

1. Be proactive. Focus on your green zone.
2. Get Perspective. Where is this issue on a scale of 1-10? How important will this be in 6 months time? What can I find that’s positive in this situation?
3. Remember the beachball. Make sure you check out other people’s perspectives.
4. Hippo Time is OK – we need to Wallow and have time for recovery. However it’s temporary. It’s a detour not a destination.
5. Remember you are M.A.D. – Making A Difference
