Everyone who is anyone has a coach and the flavour of the month is that anyone who wants to be ‘successful’ HAS to have a coach. All the BEST people have coaches and mentors but is coaching just a fad, a passing fashion?
Personally I am not comfortable with being labelled as a ‘coach’ – I am curious to explore other definitions but I digress. The truth is I have a talent for coaching. A talent that is both my gift and my Achilles heel. I am a dreamer, a seer and a purveyor of the future. The Vision of what is possible for someone else is so real for me and the path from the reality of where they are to the fullness of their potential is an illuminated dance of fairy lights: obvious and inviting.
BUT…. I am unable to see my own potential, my own gifts. Looking into my own light there is nothing there. Metaphorically perhaps I am blinded by it. My experience of life is often one of emptiness, nothingness, blank and uninspired. In this space I am heavy, weighty, impinging on life. Nothing to see, nothing to contribute, nothing to really live for. AND THAT is why I have a coach to hold the lamp when I am stumbling in the dark, to hold my Vision when I can’t see it for myself, to hold me with compassion while I die to living in the old structures of the darkness and die to believing the lie that I am nothing if I can’t see.
Choosing to live our full potential, to be who we truly want to be is a choice to walk into the light to, a choice to let go of fumbling in the shadows, a choice to believe that someone else can show and support me to be who I truly I am better than I can be by myself. I feel the imperative of showing my clients who they truly are. I feel the beating heart of their potential and I know that together we can climb the Everest of their dreams.
To be a coach in the true sense of the word, in the exciting, alive sense of the word is to bypass rational thinking and orient and act from the imaginal realm. To be coached from this perspective is about the courage to put your heart in the hands of a top surgeon who truly cares about you coming through the other side. It is about dying to who you think you are to become WHATEVER and WHOEVER you would really love to be. Coaching is serious stuff.
REAL coaching is a life enhancing, life expanding, mind blowing and spirit soaring. I choose to be a coach in the courageous sense of the word and my passion is to work with people who want to be the best they can be in life and put their pure talent into the world through their work and businesses. I work with a maximum of 3 clients at any one time to take their work/business to the next level taking time and care to forge and secure the path to your Everest.
Combining coaching with 25+ years creating and delivering high tech solutions to transform businesses I deliver a practical hands on offering as part of my Collaborative Coaching package as well as opportunities to connect and mastermind with others on the same journey.
SO…I have two openings in my collaborative coaching program for aspiring business leaders and entrepreneurs.
