As the fall season settles in, I am reminded that change is the only constant. Reflecting on the past year, it has been full of changes - many of which were out of my control. At times, it led to frustration, stress, and sadness, yet it also led to creativity, connection, and excitement. I had the opportunity to gain awareness, get clarity and make choices to create something new; something different.
After some reflection - social isolation provides lots of opportunity for self reflection, I was reminded of the importance of one's mindset. A positive mindset supports us to navigate through challenges with greater ease.
The great news - we can choose our mindset! Practicing gratitude, finding humour and being curious, are all helpful skills in maintaining a positive attitude. They support us in being kind and open. From this space, we can let go of assumptions, expectations, and judgement.
My hope is for us to be kinder, to others and to ourselves. We could all benefit from a little more kindness, understanding and empathy. Remember to start with yourself, because selfcare is not selfish. To support others, you need to be well.
Looking forward, my hope is for us to continue to discover creative ways to reconnect with others. Our family, friends and colleagues will appreciate it - you might enjoy it too!
Wishing you health and happiness,
What is Authentic Leadership?
Authentic Leadership has become a bit of a buzz word. To me, Authentic Leadership is about Values Based Leadership - Knowing who you are based on your core values. Why is this important? Because your values shape your thoughts, beliefs and attitude. They are your filters or lens to how you see the world - Your Perspective. As a GPS guides you to your desired destination. Your values are your personal navigation system. They allow you to lead with greater awareness and confidence. Resulting in a stronger cohesive team, with a clear vision to achieve a common goal.
The first Friday of each month is dedicated to you!
Are you looking to gain clarity on a situation? Are you struggling with a decision that needs to be made? Are you looking to create more balance in your life?
Coaching provides a safe environment for transparent conversations, where
you gain awareness, clarity and confidence to take action to become
a more effective leader.
I am so grateful for all the coaches in my life and would like to pay it forward by offering 'Free Coaching Fridays'.
Looking forward to having a conversation with you.
