Successful,…but something’s missing?

I work with successful, creative people who want to enhance the quality of their life and work.
People who want:

  • less stress, greater clarity, and genuine peace.
  • the joy that comes from more creativity in their life.
  • the serenity that comes from self-confidence, knowing when to take action, and when to let go.
  • to end  patterns of conflict with others
  • to experience life and work from a place of centered calm vs. emotional re-activity.
  • to experience life and leadership with courage in the face of not knowing “how it’s going to turn out.”
  • to bring work and life back into a healthy balance, but don’t know where to begin.

    Does this sound familiar?

  • You’re successful, but something is missing.
  • You’ve lost the passion you once had for your work. You’re “phoning it in” until the weekend.
  • The people working for you are unhappy, disinterested, and unsupportive.
  • It’s time for a change. Or things are changing. You’re stuck in fear.
  • Creatively or professionally – you’re dissatisfied. How to move forward is unclear.
  • You’ve lost interest: in work, in a relationship, in… (fill in the blank).
  • Professionally, you know you have more to give than what’s being asked of you.
  • What’s my purpose in this life? is a thought that won’t let go.
  • You’re repeating patterns that create suffering – in yourself and others. It’s time to do something different.
  • You feel pessimistic or hopeless about experiencing love and intimacy again.

    These are challenging. I know, I’ve been there.

    What I learned was:

  • Creating a fulfilling life is an “inside job.”
  • The most powerful form of leadership, at home or in your profession, is to walk your talk, in other words:  BE what you want those around you to be.
  • Every “crisis” is an opportunity to make different choices, to re-create your life for the better.
  • There are tools available to end emotional suffering and get you moving forward again – one step at a time (the good news: one of the tools is Having Fun).
  • The support of an experienced coach is pivotal in turning immovable challenge into meaningful change.
