Whether I’m working with an individual to help them implement a significant lifestyle change, or working with an organization to help them implement a major shift in business operations, the process is very similar: We’ll first look critically at where you are, then where you want to be, how to implement a path to getting there, and how to understand and deal with the complex systems and challenges you’ll encounter along the way. It’s just like going for a hike in the woods.
And just as you can’t go for a hike in the woods and cross raging rivers and scale tall mountains on nothing but good intentions, so to does personal or organizational change depend on having the right supports, fuelling your journey with great resources, and constantly pushing yourself to consistently implement your values in the day-to-day actions where change really happens.
THREE ELEMENTS OF MY COACHING PRACTICE:
[three_columns_one]1. Visual Thinking.
Change is tough and it’s especially tough to make healthy decisions to support change when everything is locked up in your head or the heads of your coworkers. By making ideas visual, tangible, and persistent, it becomes easier to get aligned on meaning, to remember what you know you should do, and to turn the complex nature of change into a manageable map that you can follow. By making change tangible, you make it unavoidable and significantly increase your chances of succeeding with change.[/three_columns_one][three_columns_one]2. Holistic Systems.
Change doesn’t happen in a bubble. Individuals and organizations inadvertently build systems that facilitate and nurture being unhealthy. In order to sustain change successfully, it’s absolutely necessary to make changes holistically, in the systems around you that you’re constantly interacting with. Context matters. When change fails, it’s often not because of a lack of good intentions or a brilliant idea, but because of a failure to build an ecosystem around that change to help it grow and thrive.[/three_columns_one][three_columns_one_last]3. Action.
It’s in the actions you take each day that great mental health, innovation, and success happen. With each change we work through together, the focus will always be on implementing the change and drilling down to the specific actions you’ll take and the challenges you’ll overcome. We’ll track everything, measure everything, and make sure each day is a step towards where you know you want to be. My coaching isn’t focused on giving advice, it’s focused on giving you things to do that will have tangible, beneficial outcomes.[/three_columns_one_last]
