Challenges are Opportunities

Braindom view challenges as opportunities, a chance to fail and to learn new things.

Due to the world slowing down, this is an opportunity to enhance leadership skills and personal developments. With the number of distractions and increase in social media usage, a strong internal mind and consistent habits can help a person stay focus and engaged.

Although the current situation have adjusted the daily habits for most people, the strong internal motivation will adapt to the situation and seize the opportunity to be more efficient with time.

As Braindom shifts the focus and energy from in-person relationships to virtual relationships, this is a great opportunity to reach more people, globally. Once the vision was clear to the entire team, the creativity of ‘how’ came out naturally for the group. From the office staff to the coaches and mentors, each person contributes to the overall vision of, help people through helping ourselves. By being more aware of our thoughts, actions, and trigger moments, we are able to recharge before it happens, refocus to be objective, and reflect on the root cause of the triggered moment.

The work environment is more efficient and effective when we are aware of how to be more conscious of our thoughts and reactions. For example, the “Safer At Home” order is difficult for extroverts because they require the human interaction, everyone else eventually. From the understanding that the extorter is not doing well during the “Safer At Home” order, the extrovert can find ways to adjust, such as ‘Happy Hour Friday’ or play digital games with friends. As for the people working with the extorter, they may be a little more understanding in regards to communication and interaction.

Learning how to be intentional with ourselves and with ours, we learn how to embrace, adapt, learn, and thrive through the storm together, stronger as one.

Workplace Reputation Beyond Braindom

Leaders have to make difficult decisions everyday, decisions that can impact their employees’ personal life. With the “Safer at Home” order, companies had to quickly consider how to continue operation while keeping the employees health and well-being a priority.

It may be unfortunate for companies to close their business and lay off their employees. For those unemployed, this is an opportunity to build personal brand and find the internal drive to leave a legacy beyond the company, family, and community.

Braindom is constantly looking for growth opportunities, not only as an organization, but as individuals within the organization. Constant improvement of self-awareness and being in uncomfortable situation will require high challenge and high support from leadership to be an organization of liberators.

From administration staffs to the top leadership teams, awareness of natural tendencies and communication style is highly encouraged. By allowing and encouraging individuals to take ownership of their role, their personal development, and their contribution to the organization, they are gaining transferable skills and creating their own reputation at work.

A proud achievement at Braindom is when the quietest team member voices their opinion and influences the group. This did not happen overnight, starting with the permission to make mistake and improve, confidence began to evolve over time. When opportunities arise for individuals to speak up, the quietest member will be asked to share before the group gets swayed towards one direction. Team members learned that the lack of information or too much information can cause frustration and confusion amongst the group. By understanding the audience in the room and how information is received and processed, the message is delivered in a concise manner to get majority onboard. Not only has this skill helped in the workplace, this also helped at home and in the community.

It’s All About Perspective

It is the year 2020, technology is advanced and the work environment has changed from generation to generation. The world is currently going through a global pandemic, COVID-19 (Coronavirus). Some people view this as a new opportunity, while others are panicking and cannot see past the current situation.

At Braindom, this is a new opportunity to serve the community and be the guiding voice through this “new normal”. There is always a silver lining in every storm, and it starts with perspective and mindset.

With the advancement of technology and digital communication, the human interaction has changed. Some people argue that the change is for the worse and others argue that the change is for the better, it’s perspective. As the world continues to practice social distancing and adjust to the new realty, Braindom will share daily learning moments and perspective through this platform.

Introduction to Braindom

Braindom (brain-dom) – the brain is one of the most powerful tool for a person to store all their knowledge, experience, aspirations, and dreams

Braindom provides resources and tools for companies to become employee centric and for individuals to reach their fullest potential.

Change is inevitable, and there will be variety of responses. There are some people who will quickly adapt to the change while others will slowly adapt or even resist it. By understanding why some people are early adopters and why some are late adopters, an effective leader will be able to influence the group to take ownership and embrace the opportunities.

Braindom operates within these 4 core values:

Compassion (Observe, listen, understand, and assist) – We are all human. Everyone we work with experiences the same hopes and fears. Our compassion allows us to understand where and how we can help.

Integrity (Honor our commitment to those we serve) – We own up to and learn from our mistakes and commitments. We choose courage over comfort to do right regardless of the consequences and the inconvenience.

Thrive (Never be satisfied with good enough) – Excellence is a habit, not a goal. We welcome changes and challenges with enthusiasm. We make it a habit to improve habits, to go above and beyond the call of duty because it is who we are.

Growth (Embrace opportunities to learn and improve) – We invest in ourselves through personal development and collaboration. With self-awareness, we continuously seek ways to add value. The more people we help succeed, the more we succeed.
