Together let's find out what happens when you bring awareness and self inquiry together with strategic planning and daily actions.
If you're ready to confront where you may relate to money, time, or people as an excuse to not take responsibility in going after your goals, I'll help you forge new habits, grow in self-awareness, connect with your people and systems and ultimately find out how good it feels to walk your talk - no excuses.
Every day is a chance to take another small and real step toward your goals.
Are you walking your talk? Can you look back at your week, month, quarter and track the progress, the daily baby steps taken toward how your work is serving a better life?
If you're frustrated over your current relationship to keeping your commitments, your use of time in a day, to knowing what to prioritize in the current state of your business, or feeling out of alignment with where your business is headed, you're not unique and you're not alone. I can help you clarify your strengths and directly support how you create and execute both strategically and in direct actions.
I do this by assessing your current relationship to the business and employees, and how that connects (or not) with what's intrinsically meaningful to you and what you say you want to achieve. I'm direct with what I observe, and will support you from the ground up in building a personally fulfilling relationship with training as a way of life, not some outside to in program or curriculum that you'll forget or lapse out of.
If you're frustrated by what you experience as your employees not performing to the level you know is possible, or a recurring cycle of turnover where you're the only one who can execute at the level you're committed to. I can help you end this cycle by getting to the root of the issues, and mentoring others to do the same so your culture becomes an empowering, collaborative, and creative environment. I'll help you build or rebuild your recruiting and hiring processes to attract the right people with the right skills and attitudes, getting them into the right seats in the business.
Are you open to looking at different perspectives on challenging situations you may think you know why are happening, but continue to happen? Ready to commit to cultivating a training mindset and have a new experience around what self-discipline can be based on what's personally meaningful? Would you like to connect your inward journey of a meaningful and purpose driven life with the business you've created and people who make it come alive?
This coaching is tailor made for your needs, based on extensive conversations and assessment done prior to any paid engagement. It's designed and adaptable so that by the time you begin coaching, you know you're in the right place.
I’ll start with an assumption that you’re serious about getting support, that you’re looking for a way through a difficult spot, a challenging time or phase in your life or business, or a blind spot you know is there but haven’t identified. Or that you feel you’re not accessing your potential as a professional, as a leader, as a person. It could be that you’re feeling disconnected from what’s meaningful in your business or position, and how that’s not separate from your life. You might feel isolated in your work life and generally disconnected from meaningful relationships. Or perhaps you’re stuck in the way you relate to your work, employees or peers, your state of health, and know deep down you can do more to access your own resourceful way of overcoming challenges and executing towards your goals.
And whatever you’ve tried, it hasn’t done the trick, whether it be past coaching, life-hacking, online forums, daily reminders, perpetual reading, cultivating happiness, meditation, and any number of myriad of ways that don't seem to achieve the balance you're looking for or heard promised from these methods.
I gladly admit that my life isn’t balanced, so I have no claim or offer for you to achieve that mysterious balance. And I’ve been in most of the situations above, and if I haven’t been in them, I’ve supported others to move away from these symptomatic treatments of fulfillment, through tailor made coaching into a place of self-acceptance and aligned purposeful actions.
Instead of seeking a state of balance, I'm walking through life as a constant and ongoing balancing. You could see it as walking a tightrope, whether it’s 1000 ft off the ground or 1 inch. Balancing our work inside of our lives includes how we’re often swinging mid-air between trapeze bars, literally in between places of solid ground and understanding, learning new skills and attaining goals. And with all of this, I've found with myself and with clients that we're often unequipped to be able to accept what our choices, conscious or not have brought about.
All this is happening inside the environment you've built at work, and it's this environment that you can change, step by incremental step - to bring more vitality, personal meaning and connection into your business. In the process when needed, we'll bring employees into the conversation to address relationships, trust, conversational frameworks, solving problems and culture in your workplace.
From this perspective it’s both the result or outcome you’re striving for and the way you walk on the path every day that determine your change or growth. The little commitments add up to big changes.
Top it off with the fact that the world is so damn busy with media based messages and businesses literally fighting for your attention. I want you to consider that your attention and focus are simply the single greatest resource you have. Though it may not be easy to reign it in, it's possible and it reaps big dividends.
We pay with our attention.
Let’s break this down: If you’re here reading this, you’re paying attention, well partially at least right? Think of your attention as a currency, something you constantly spend wherever it goes or lands from a place of intention, innocent ignorance or avoidance. Please, take a few minutes and really think about where and what you spend your attention on in a given day. If this is all you take away from this visit, a beginning inquiry into where you spend your attention and the ensuing outcomes - great.
And if you’re still with me, consider how your attention can also be invested. It can be set up, sharpened and directed so that you’re playing a longer game, one where attention serves a bigger picture and deeper purpose that’s personally meaningful and serves the greater collective. You’ve likely heard of the concept of putting off immediate gratification for long term satisfaction. Again, please take a minute to think about where you are and aren't living with this consideration, and acknowledge where this is already true for you in even having your business, a cherished relationship, or an expertise or skill you've built over many years.
So let's have a conversation. I promise you'll leave the call with insights and direct actions, and an applicable perspective on training that if you choose, will change the game you're playing.
