Are you looking for a real transformation? Do you want to blast through what feels like burdensome old patterns and live limitlessly?
That is not a trifle question. There is a difference between wanting incremental improvements at work and in your career, and the complete and overarching process of pulling apart and then retooling/resourcing the way you see the world and how your thought processes work for you (as indeed more often, they do not).
Mindfulness-based Leadership Coaching aims to go to the source of your thinking and the core of your heart. All competent coaching is awesome – really helpful to focus, get an outsider’s view on limiting patterns of thinking, and construct more robust mindsets for dealing with stress factors in your life.
Mindfulness-based coaching is different in the sense that it aims to go deeper than just ‘Bigger, Better, Richer, Faster’ versions of yourself. It comes under the banner of ‘Leadership Coaching’ because we aim to decipher and take decisive, even ambitious action as Change-Makers: What really moves you to turn the world around? What would you do if the only limitations of your vision are your habitual thinking patterns? How can you make a lasting, positive, and significant impact changing both your internal world and your environment?! More importantly, how can you do so with ease and have lots of fun in the process?
This coaching process can help with:
Preparing to take on a new leadership role that feels bigger than your comfort zone;
Overhauling your relationships with failure and success;
Dealing with multiple stress factors in your current life;
Overcoming the ‘’Imposter Syndrome’ and indeed any other doubts you have about yourself;
Finding what is meaningful to you and how can you make a difference you really care about;
Seeing old and troubled relationships with new and resourceful eyes;
And, as corny as it might sound, learning to love who you really are.
