It’s important to remember that while life and work might be serious, they are not grim. Contrary to what we’ve been taught, not everything that’s worth learning is worth learning the hard way. However, it is a good idea to discover how to learn the smart way, and to make that learning “stick.”
Through something akin to the Socratic method of inquiry: conversation/ query/ conversation/ query, we peel away the layers to discover the seed, the essence of your situation/challenge/quest. With this gem of awareness in hand, we begin to co-design a plan of how to get ‘there’ from ‘here.’ This is a client-driven process, and works best when it reflects what has meaning to you. Customized techniques and practices are then put in place, as are conditions of satisfaction and points of accountability. Somatic practices may be included, such as breathing and relaxation techniques (see the "Breathe Easy” page,) stretching, or quiet sitting. This is an entirely cooperative venture, so it has to work for you.
Coaching can be done in person, over the phone, or both. I have an international clientele, and am occasionally able to meet clients in settings where our travels take us. Clients have called this coaching exciting, exhilarating, challenging, focused, purposeful, at times uncompromising. It is also highly rewarding, and can even be fun!!!
Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness
has genius, power
and magic in it.
Begin it now.
