Coaching helps you find Clarity, make conscious Choices, and take positive Action to get you where you want to go.
It was somewhere in my late 40's when I started to wonder 'Is this what it's all about'? I mean, I had it all; great everything: family, friends, career ... but there was a niggling internal voice that kept asking ... why does 'having it all' leave me feeling so unsettled, so unsure, so stuck? I managed to keep that little voice pretty quiet as I went on to bigger, better jobs and a truly rewarding career. I got to travel around the world, meet amazing, smart and fun people and keep learning and earning while I was doing it. Years passed ... as they do.
Along the way I was offered the opportunity to coach new managers in our global organization. I received training and got to flex my coaching muscles in working with leaders across the global business and with my own team. I noticed I was feeling better & more fulfilled when I was engaged in this way, so I stepped out in my local community to mentor a team of student entrepreneurs, participating in an exciting program that helped them launch their business. I also became an informal coach for friends and family who wanted some help with their own questions about career changes ... the ones that inevitably arise as we get firmly rooted in mid-life.
I started to pay more attention to what was going on in my heart instead of only listening to the noise in my head and decided to start living in a way that felt right. I set out to reclaim my energy, my relationships and my destiny. I engaged in a year long intensive training to become a Certified Professional Coach and here I am today: defector from corporate life, risk taker, and champion/guide for those embracing personal growth and development.
Some things don't change ... I work with amazing, smart and fun people. I keep learning. I travel. I dance.
Some things do change ... I get to spend my time helping others transform and witnessing their "a-ha moments". I see them light up. And I fully live the life I'm creating one day at a time.
I'm pretty amazed at all of this. I could say I wish I'd started sooner but I'm learning to let go of regret; it's all worked out in a way that was right for me. And I've leaned into some universal truths about mid-life. It's a period of active and systematic change, and for many of us, change is not nearly as simple or easy as it used to be. This period of career and life renewal calls calls for deconstructing old beliefs and habits that no longer serve us (or maybe never did). It's a time to gain clarity on what's important, to make choices that are in alignment with who we truly are and want to be in our work, and then take action to create a life/career we love.
Today I work with those who are paying attention to that niggling voice. It shows up differently for every one of them. Here are just a few examples. Perhaps you've said something like this to yourself ?
- Is it time and/or how can I change careers?
- I lost my creative mojo and can't seem to get it back.
- I've changed and am having a tough time figuring out who I am and who I want to be.
- Am I good enough, smart enough, confident enough, xyz enough ... ?
- I need some inspiration so I can gladly step into a fulfilling second half of life.
- I want to discover more about myself and how learn how to be happier and more positive.
- I need help in rebuilding self-confidence and self-esteem.
I help smart, successful people tune in and pay attention so path clears up. Their questions change from "What If" to "What's Next"
