Resilience, starting small and building atomic habits - Snezana Djuric
In the latest Leadership Series, Peter Esho speaks with CEO coach Snezana Djuric about resilience, starting small, thinking big and developing atomic habits for long term corporate success.
Djuric shares her profound insights on the significance of accountability and self-reflection, emphasizing the importance of resisting the urge to find external blame when confronted with adversity.
Instead, she champions the idea of looking inwards, asking oneself what can be learned from every situation. Drawing from Stephen Covey's "Seven Habits of Highly Effective People", Djuric elaborates on concentrating efforts on areas within one's control, offering an enlightening perspective on how to navigate life's hurdles.
Djuric, an experienced coach, also outlines her coaching methods, which revolve around posing powerful questions to instigate self-realization. These techniques help individuals identify the root of their issues, establish concrete goals, and craft actionable steps towards achieving them. To ensure consistent progress, she recommends starting small, believing that small, consistent efforts eventually lead to significant results.
This ideology resonates with the book "Atomic Habits", which she recommends, highlighting its tenet of "don't break the chain", and the profound effect of compound gains over time.
Closing the discussion, Djuric touches on the compelling concept of visualising the person you aspire to become. This forward-looking perspective encourages individuals to evaluate current decisions based on future aspirations, providing a clear path for personal growth.
As the chat winds down, Peter Esho appreciates the depth and breadth of the topics discussed, expressing hope that their audience finds value in their conversation about personal development, resilience, and the art of building lasting habits.
