What are you noticing these days about yourself, your colleagues, and your clients?
I’ve noticed in my coaching practice, that some of my clients are working differently than before.
In my practice, I’ve always been the gal that begins working with folks starting with their history and foundation, their strengths, and past successes. We explore and dream about what they want and then design possibilities for experimentation and growth. My process is to help clients move toward creative, solution-based outcomes, in which they are the agents of their own change.
What I’m seeing is that some of my clients are taking smaller steps on their journey.
I wonder about that. Perhaps it’s coming from mental fatigue, competing priorities, concerns about achieving their goals, or … I’m sure the answer is different for different folks. I don’t think that I even need to learn the answers as my role is to listen to their experiences and ask the questions to explore the possibilities they imagine for their futures. And, of course, there are so many paths to achieving one’s goals… enjoying the journey—with its achievements, challenges, failures, and learning—is one of my criteria of success.
What about you—how are you feeling?
As you make time to reflect on your thoughts and actions, what do you notice? I know that we don’t exist in a vacuum. I definitely feel the ebb and flow of connection with the world outside me: work and communication (both professional and personal). I also feel the effects on how I choose to spend my precious time… I crave more art/creativity and silence.
Last week, I wrote about feelings also… Here’s a visual, by Abby Vanmuijen, that’s so appealing to me, . You may want to check out her site too.
What are your thoughts about how you’re doing—and that question comes from a place of curiosity (not judgment)—looking at the subject like it’s a gem, exploring its facets.
I want to hear how you’re doing… Drop me a line or make a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
