I am often asked what my approach to coaching is. While I am a life work coach, certainly a rose is not always a rose and there are many variations of a life-work coach. Actually, I like to think of myself as a guide, a catalyst for women leaders who want to make a transition and reignite their life’s work.
Here’s a bit about me and my transformation, based on my experience and beliefs:
I viewed myself as a career woman with the ambition to have my own business. During my self-imposed transition out of working for a large healthcare advertising and PR agency, I started to freelance my services. Ultimately, I found this unfulfilling. While I did experience more freedom in my life, the freedom came at the expense of fulfilment, which over time was not worth it to me.
In retrospect, I finally realized that I held old views about “being independent” that frayed at the fabric of a fulfilling career. While my former self was an ace at being independent, a quality that was really valuable in launching my career, it came to be a blind spot as I built my independent communication services. Overcoming blind spots are key to making a transition, as you grow out of your comfort zone and into your “thrive zone”.
Mastering the synchronization of interdependence and independence is one way to get out of your comfort zone so you can thrive. Ultimately, I became better at integrating the meaning and implications of conversations to further my own agenda as well as others.
This helped to soften the edge of independence and create more space for expansion… into an area I call thriving. This is how you can influence and empower others and be a true interdependent team player in your life’s work.
