« back to Intentionomics at Work

Team member working on a project … looking to build stronger trust relationships internally and externally of my company to achieve better results

Let me start with this …

People Get Your Truth! – over time, your intentions, your actions and your results will either promote or expose you

This has profound meaning for you and will deeply impact the relationships you have with your business relationships both internally and externally, and the results you can potentially achieve.

When I wrote the book Intentionomics – the impact of your intentions on living a happy, flourishing and prosperous life and developed the Intentionomics Blueprint, it was very clear to me that the 9 Inescapable Truths for a Prosperous Life were just as appropriate in your personal life as they are for your work life.

Below I provide you with some specific actions you can take by applying the Intentionomics Blueprint, and before you take a look at that, here is what I refer to as the Intentional Team Engagement & Success Model that shows 5 stages of team engagement that can be created through my tailored Intentionomics At Work programs.

Applying the 9 Inescapable Truths as a Team Member

Here’s a few specific actions on applying the Intentionomics Blueprint that you can take right now to help you to become even more successful in your role and as a team member, regardless of the project or projects you’re working on.

Define what a prosperous work life means for you
Have you really defined what a prosperous work life means for you? What’s in your control that will help you to create and maintain a personally rewarding work experience that will lead to you being even more engaged, proactive in helping to achieve your project or projects goals and to be even more happy, flourishing and prosperous at work?


Take stock of your truth about you
People get your truth! Over time, your truth, intention, actions and results will either promote you or expose you. You can’t escape the need to be happy and proud of your own truth – with who you are as a person. What are you currently doing to work on your own truth – what do you truly believe about your current work role, about the value you’re creating as being a team member on the project or projects you’re working on, about the intra and inter team relationships you have, about your character and integrity, about the goals you have set and the way you’re going about proactively progressing toward your goal achievement?


Define your intention for each business role
Why do you do what you do? This is really important to be able to answer and understand. It is your intentions (your reason and your purpose for doing things) that causes you to feel pride……or not. Your intention will become clear over time to those with whom you come into contact. People get your truth. To what extent have you defined your own intentions for yourself, and importantly for those with whom you are working, both intra and inter team relationships?

Your intention is what connects or disengages you in the business (and personal) relationships you have.


Control your inner voice
Your inner voice is, of course, what you silently say to yourself. When was the last time you really tuned into those quiet, personal words? Your inner voice will affect how you feel emotionally and physically. And, in turn, how you feel about things influences your decisions, actions and results. What are you doing to tap into the impact of what your inner voice is saying to yourself about your role, your potential, your relationships, your competence, the value you create and your intentions?


Develop intentional success habits
You are a creature of habit and often do things as though on autopilot…..and this can be positive…..however there is a dark side to habit. It is the steps you take without thinking that can make the biggest differences in your life – whether that’s a positive or negative difference. When are you on auto pilot? What are you doing to discover when you might be acting out of habit rather than intention?

When you’re communicating with your business relationships, whether that’s intra or inter team relationships, you can’t be building rapport ‘out of habit’; you can’t be asking questions just ‘out of habit’, you can’t be problem solving just ‘out of habit’ and you can’t be influencing, persuading, negotiating and communicating just ‘out of habit’. You need to be tapping into your intention – being consciously connected and engaged with your intention for your various business relationships as you’re building rapport, asking questions, showing value and communicating with them. The more connected and aligned you are personally with your intention for your business relationships, the more connected and aligned they will become with you……People get your truth!…..and people want to work with and will work better with people they trust.


Pursue Intentional Aspirational Goals
You are an aspirational goal seeking being and because all humans have this as an innate drive, this explains the power of goal setting. However, where it goes wrong in the business environment is that the goals that are set do not often align with a personal intention (a bigger WHY!) that will inspire people to direct their intentional energy and actions toward their achievement. What are you doing to align your own personal intention and motivation toward the goals you need to achieve in your role?


Build Intentional Trust Relationships
You don’t get trust – you earn it. This is true for you in the various business (and personal) relationships you have. What are you doing to define and monitor the ways you’re earning and building trust? What are the promises being made and to what extent are they being completed? Where are there trust-fractures within the relationships required to help you achieve your goals?


Develop a thirst for intentional learning
If you are not learning, you are not growing and if you are not growing you’re stagnating – how could that make anyone feel happy, flourishing or prosperous at work? What are you doing that demonstrates your thirst for intentional learning? Are you investing in your own learning, or are you passively just waiting for your employer to provide you with learning opportunities. Personal and professional development is within your own control…..don’t let it get high-jacked by playing the learning victim and expecting everything to be handed to you on an educational plate.


It's your intentional choice
As you consider each of these 9 inescapable truths for you, it is inescapable that the choices you make on a daily basis, are going to produce the results you achieve. What are you doing for yourself to build your capacity to make wise intentional decisions? How comfortable and confident are you in your capacity to make more wise and intentional decisions?
