Episode 34: COVID-19 Supporting Doctors: Treat others as they would like to be treated. Top tips for dealing with stress in others

This week Rachel chats with Gitanjali Trevorrow-Seymour A self confessed neuroscience nerd, Gitanjali is on a mission to liberate our brains. As The Possiblist Coach she increases her client’s resilience, confidence and impact; liberating them from overthinking so they are empowered to see what’s possible. She is also the Founder of the leadership development company, High Definition You. If you’d like to see the slide on social styles then why don’t you watch this episode on YouTube? (insert link)

In the COVID crisis you may be trying to be kind and make allowances for people, but it’s hard! We chat about how we can all act in stressful situations – becoming an ‘uber’ version of, if we’re honest, not always our best selves. 

Gita uses the social styles model to talk through a simple way of thinking about how we behave and respond to others in our teams and families. Some of us assert our opinion more easily than others and some of us are able to control how we express things and are perhaps more task focussed than others. This shows up in how we interact – and crucially how people clash under pressure.

We discuss the different styles and chat about how we can change our own behaviour to get the best out of people.

Gita’s top tips are:

  1. Be kind to yourself
  2. Create some time to reflect on yourself and how you are experienced?
  3. Seek out some feedback from others about how you are experienced by them
