Yesterday an amazing thing happened – I got an unexpected call-back message from an emailed offer of career coaching and facilitation using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®). What I heard was a request to talk about leadership through an exciting lens very different than any I had ever considered.

I went into major anxiety around how to handle the call-back. Then I remembered EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), the tapping process that had just re-entered my life when I got Nick Ortner’s new book The Tapping Solution: A Revolutionary System for Stress-Free Living (April 2013) last week. [His website; his blog; EFT articles.]

EFT is a simple and powerful stress reliever that I had used when my grandson was 12 years old and in the hospital with appendicitis. I said, “Michael, if you feel afraid, just tap gently right under your eyes about 7 times.” Under the eye is where the accupressure point for the stomach is and tapping there alleviates fear.

A very quick place for learning EFT is on thought leader Carol Look‘s website. She has created a free website page with the basics of doing EFT, which is very good for relieving pain as well as stress and fear (scroll down link to a big turquoise and yellow icon to see the EFT tapping process and sign up for the free lessons).

Another great addition to your EFT library is the 2011 feature film Nick Ortner, his sister, and best friend created with no film making expertise and minimal budget, tapping at every obstacle. In addition to world famous teachers, speakers, and motivators (many from the film The Secret), there were REAL LIFE CASES of ten people who spent four days together and turned their lives around. The Tapping Solution: The Revolution Starts Within starred Nick, Joe Vitale, Jack Canfield, and Carol Look.

After tapping for about ten minutes, I was able to comfortably call back to make an appointment to talk about Myers-Briggs, diversity and leadership.
