A challenge to global CEOs
CEOs: are you really happy working in English? As a leader of your company in your native language, you are normally confident and happy. But, if you are not confident in your English communication, do you feel the same happiness working in English?
BE HONEST: ARE YOU REALLY HAPPY WORKING IN ENGLISH?
When you are working in English,
Are you happy?
Now, that might sound like a silly question, but think about it for a minute.
When you’re working in your native language, I’m sure you’re happy.
You’re able to communicate confidently.
You don’t have the added pressure and stress of using a different language.
And you’re able… you grew this company.
You’re an executive at this company. or the founder, or the CEO, or a high-level executive with your firm.
I’m certain you’re very comfortable and very happy working in your native language.
However, when it comes to English…
Are you really happy working in English?
And I ask this, because most of my clients have expressed to me they were NEVER happy working in English
They were FULL OF STRESS, and they FELT SO MUCH PRESSURE
They just couldn’t be themselves.
And, they couldn’t be happy.
They couldn’t be funny in English.
But they really felt like a different person when they were working in English.
Trying to be the leader of their company in English, was so much more difficult and they really just weren’t the same person they were in their native language.
And it had a great impact on them.
The GOOD NEWS is there is something you can do about this.
Once you become very confident in your communication SKILLS, and once you become very confident naturally USING English as the leader of your company, you can become yourself again.
You can become that same happy person and enjoy working the same way you enjoy working in your native language.
If you feel the same way that I discussed in this video, I would love to hear from you.
Send me a message, tell me how you really do feel when you’re working in English.
And if you want to talk about your specific situation, please do so.
Send a note and I’d be happy to talk to you about it.
I hope you have a great week.
I’ll talk to you soon.
