Mikala W.
Sr. VP, F5 Networks
“How is my life different from when I started coaching? - I have a greater perspective on how I can remain calm in the midst of a storm, including how I can take control of my emotions when I face these situations. - I’m also thinking about what I need to change on the inside in order to impact my life on the outside. To this end, I am spending more time visualizing the outcome & feeling that I want to experience as a way to help set myself up for success. What progress am I most proud of? - Mediation has become one of my normal practices and I do this 3-4 times a week. I use this practice to centre myself in the mornings or to bring calm to my life in the evenings. I’ve introduced this practice as well as others that Vibha has shown me with my children and it has had a significant impact on my relationship with them and I am teaching them helpful habits at a young age. I am able to also help them take control of their own emotions in a positive way. What were the most meaningful "aha" moments? - In one of our sessions we discussed approaching work in a way that creates “mutually beneficial” relationships. That dialogues created a mindset shift where I now am thinking more about what I am also getting from work, projects, etc., and not just what I am pouring out to help the company reach its goals. - The discussions related to visualization were also extremely powerful."
