As we take stock of where we are in our lives, we have been forced to disrupt our own narrative and reshape our dreams. As a result, one question emerges: Are you dreaming big enough?
The answer is relatively simple: If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough.
I have learned two very important lessons in my coaching journey so far:
- Increasing self-awareness will help you turn your fears into fuel.
- Partnering with an executive coach will help you set yourself up for success.
The evolution of coaching
Going back to the history of coaching, in the mid-1970s, Timothy Gallwey introduced sport coaching in the workplace with the innovative program The Inner Game of Tennis: “There is always an inner game being played in your mind no matter what outer game you are playing. How aware you are of this game can make the difference between success and failure in the outer game.” (W. Timothy Gallwey).
His new way of coaching was a revolutionary approach to excellence in sports that tackled the issues of how to overcome the inner obstacles that prevent an individual from reaching full potential. From this point onward, coaching became prominent within the learning ecosystem of the Global 500 - a key ingredient for organisations to make their leaders more agile and future-ready.
Having an executive coach to help your professional progress makes perfect sense in today's dynamic business environment. Recent examples also show how companies integrate coaching in their career transition services to support employees to successfully find their next job.
One-on-one Executive Coaching
Whether you are looking at keeping your job search momentum going or adapting to thrive in a VUCA world, your executive coach will be your best ally to:
- “Re-energise” - transform your dreams into concrete and measurable stretch goals.
- “Re-strategise” - develop grit to push through and overcome internal barriers.
- “Re-celebrate” - build a growth mindset and accomplish small wins en route to success.
In other words, an Executive Coach can be a catalyst for change, who will help you navigate through uncertain times.
Coaching and Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF)
At Page Executive, giving back to others is an important part of our culture. Starting from this month, I will be offering virtual executive coaching sessions to up to 10 clients over a three-month engagement period. In return, I will encourage you to make a donation to our long-term charity partner Children’s Cancer Foundation (CCF). 100% of the gross donations will go to CCF.
CCF is a social service agency with a mission to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and their families and children impacted by cancer through enhancing their emotional, social and medical well-being.
I am very passionate about this project and looking forward to sharing my insights and knowledge during our first coaching session. Are your ready for coaching? If the answer is yes, please connect with me directly on LinkedIn.
