For me this time of year always feels like the start of a new year as school starts again. It’s a time of new plans post the holiday time. This year my youngest son has just started university. A client’s daughter had her first day at a new college so he was distracted. It’s the start of a whole new adventure for them both. I was also reminded that it’s four years since my son’s granny passed away and my mind went to the Past. It brought to mind the diagram above that I first saw when I started out coaching.
The last few weeks have been a busy & reflective time. Firstly attending the annual International Coach Federation (ICF) conference and then running my nourishing retreat in gorgeous Oxfordshire with my coaching pal Gayl.
Following on from last month’s blog ‘Courage or confidence?’ I had a great question from a coach about fear. Not only his clients but his own. It prompted me to think more about fear associated with taking action. Is it fear or something else?
In the last week I’ve been sourcing great TED talks for my career coaching clients. I just love them as for me they bring everything to life! I’m also much more of a visual person so it helps me.
There was one from Dan Sullivan that spoke to me. It’s aimed at entrepreneurs but it’s so relevant to us all. Whether you’re someone looking at a career change, a leader taking on a new role, a coach stepping out, developing a new skill and many other situations. It involves 4 C’s.
