I was a slow starter. Most coaches start their own business early in their career – twenty years ago there weren’t many options because the profession was so new and didn’t exist as an employee. I felt lucky when, after six months of trying on my own, I took one of the few existing positions.
Are you giving yourself the time to reflect undisturbed and on a regular basis? If not, I would like to invite you to set aside time regularly for reflection as it brings so many benefits. The Whole World Reflects UsThe common meaning of reflection is when an image (sound or energy) mirrors back from a surface..
Life is short, I think as a 60-year-old. I didn’t think like that at all when I was younger. Now I realize that those years between 30-60 are very compressed with career, family, children, friends, travel, living, and activities of various kinds. It is completely understandable that many people do not spend much time and.
The last inner challenge I take up in Leading from Joy is to let go of everything we feel dependent on and then jump into the unknown – to a completely new lifestyle, for example. The beginnings and endings are part of the natural process of life. Can you recognize yourself in keeping things open because the.
This challenge is dedicated to any leader who acts as the lone wolf or alpha male. Managers, CEOs who know best and who want to maintain control. But also on a more personal level – the openness to partnership in depth – to really let other people into our lives. In this challenge, I introduce.
I usually say that without commitment there is no one to coach. Commitment is more than choosing something/someone, it comes from the heart and includes making sure that what we promised and set up also comes true, even if we don’t know how at first. The back door is closed. There is no question of.
One of the biggest challenges we as humans seem to have is to accept that we are different and that it is rarely so simple that there is a right answer. Life is complex and both birth and death happen every minute. As a coach, I meet many clients with this challenge. Among other things,.
We make decisions every single day. What I address in this challenge are the big decisions that have to do with lifestyle, profession, livelihood, family and partnership. When we have lost the spark and need to make a new choice – to choose something new that inspires us again. I have met many who wait.
We all have a brain that quickly decides whether the unknown is something to trust or not. If we let the amygdala control and set us in all situations, we easily become anxious and fearful. In this challenge, I address all the other sources we have access to such as our emotions, minds, intelligences, strengths,.
We are all unique, so the question is what is specific to you? The more inner contact we have, the more we dare to trust and express our own perspectives on the world. What makes us extra happy, engaged and which feels meaningful? In coaching, I’ve always liked to bring up role models – what.
In my book, Leading from Joy, I address nine inner challenges that I have often encountered when coaching leaders, usually CEOs. In a series of posts, I will introduce them all. Loving yourself is the first thing. Loving and taking care of oneself is our primary task in life. Our own mothers and fathers have.
On the other side of the world, we have just celebrated midwinter. This time of the year it’s time to sail north – up to the Islands, Fiji & New Caledonia, or northwest to Australia (Oceania) – if you’re like us in New Zealand. Once a year, in May-June, it is most beneficial. Now is.
My CEO-clients have got many successful stories to share. It has made a tremendous difference for me as well. Almost all great things that have happened in my life, I trace back to my work with personal development. I would love for everyone to have the same experience. Big changes like paradigm shifts in society.
Hi! I have arrived now. You can reach me now. I have sailed over three oceans and have arrived on the other side of the Earth. It took me and my husband a year to come here, and two years to prepare for it. It was a huge commitment and choice to sell everything and.
I have been thinking about what’s driving me to leave all I had, to sail around the world with my husband. I have realized that it is the Journey inside me that’s driving me. What would an outer journey like this do with me as a being? As I have been working as a professional.
I’m coaching a woman from the western world. She wants to investigate the behaviour of staying “busy” all the time. An old pattern of saying yes, especially to assignments. She is clearly successful on that level. The habit of being busy all the time, however, makes her restless when she is free and does nothing,.
Welcome to a new moment. Take a deep breath and feel for a moment how you are doing right now. How happy are you right now? Are you committed to something that inspires you? A new year – this big celebration at midnight once a year – is just one point where our new year.
