What I love in my coaching work is helping people design their next chapter. For many people, it can be challenging to decide which direction they want to pursue next. They get stuck and don’t have a clear idea of how to proceed.
Talking with a coach helps them to open up possibilities, widen the lens to encompass many options, before doing research to narrow down the field. We do this in tandem with investigating or re-examining their skills, talents, interests, and values. In this way, they gain a new appreciation for where and when they feel engaged and fulfilled.
We look for people, organizations, industries that might be a potential match and then investigate ways to learn more about and talk with people in these fields. This gives them a better idea if this line of work is a good match before heading down that path.
Having a coach to guide them in this time of exploration is so fruitful for many of my clients. They feel like they have a partner to help them think through ideas, to ask questions that get to the heart, and to motivate them when they get discouraged.
One client recently wrote to me, “I really want to thank you for everything. It’s been such a pleasure talking with you. You helped me to realize my values and the things that are important to me through this journey. You were able to help me refocus during one of the most difficult times of my life, and I can’t thank you enough.”
If you want to refocus or reimagine your life/work, give me a call. I’d love to explore with you whether we would be a good team to help you gain clarity and a new path.
