I think I may need a fundamental rethink of my life and my work
In my section on the The Power of Coach-Mentoring I talk about the different levels of coach-mentoring support I offer clients. Some of whom want to undertake a rethink of their lives and where they are going and what they really want.
My Get-a-Better-Life Review involves coaching at the deeper levels of two and three. Don’t worry if this sounds too technical, it’s just a way of explaining that coaching is a bit like peeling back the layers of an onion. Some people only want to deal with issues at the outer layer, say improving their skills at chairing meetings, others want to peel back to find out why they think and feel the way they do, and why others might react the way they do. And other clients want to fundamentally change the way they feel and behave in order to be happier, and to make plans to achieve what they really want out of life.
This is not therapy, nor is it counselling and neither am I a psychologist!
But I do understand how to work effectively with you so that you can better understand your inner self and your innermost aspirations, achieved by developing a trusted relationship and entering into confidential and sensitive discussions… along with guided visualisations, breathing exercises and sometimes just fun! This is about your development using coaching “as a catalyst for change”:
LEVEL TWO SUPPORT: can help you deal with DEEPER ISSUES like wanting to be more open or effective in communicating with others, or wanting to enhance your inner confidence; wanting to increase your personal and professional effectiveness, to improve your impact and enhance your perceptual thinking.
LEVEL THREE SUPPORT: is about ‘inside-out’ TRANSFORMATIVE CHANGES, that is, helping you with a more enduring and positive development in your fundamental view of life and of yourself, your surroundings and your way of ‘being’ in the world.
This is fantastic opportunity for those of you wishing to re-evaluate your life, business, or your career, to explore the ‘inner-you’ in order to map out new strategies for the rest of your life. Level 3 coaching builds inner wellbeing and confidence, reduces stress, and supports ongoing spiritual development to support those BIG life-changes you may be contemplating.
Remember that this is your ”one wild and precious life”, what will you do with yours?
Maya Angelou once said in her simple statement that: “There’s a world of difference between ‘making a living and making a life.”
… by which I think she meant to ask of each of us… “are you working to live, or living to work?”
Contemplating these questions can simulate a fascinating conversation that can lead to revealing your deeply held beliefs, values, lived behaviours, and wished for dreams.
For those of you with a more sceptical and scientific bent, remember that Albert Einstein once said that: “The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science…”
He added that: “Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution.”
I provide a secure environment through which you can deeply explore who you really are, and what needs to happen to make the changes you’d like to experience in your life and work, we may even discover ‘your life’s work’!:
Here’s a wonderful poem/exhortation for you to ponder upon, ask yourself how successfully could you apply this advice:
“Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words.
Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviours.
Keep your behaviours positive because your behaviours become your habits.
Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values.
Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”
