How is my life different from when I started coaching? Conscious focus on ways to mitigate stress- meditation (prayer is saying, meditation is listening), exercising, time alone for reflection, more time going to church & sleep Centering myself- make a plan & put it on paper Make time for me to recharge- Hallow catholic meditation app & attending daily mass What progress am I most proud of? Being more mindful & helping my kids centre themselves while focusing on their strengths & blessings, focusing on thanking people & surprising others with kindness How I handled the discontinuation of OBP as an opportunity and recognized the team for work well done (Bamboo tree story)- ultimately this resulted in a career opportunity I had never considered before in global product supply & the best possible outcome for my team 4.5/5 stars on overall assessment & likelihood to recommend my Owning Your Career Workshop, follow-up workshop & national program request Received Top Performer Award for 2020 (only 1-2% of employees get this recognition) Completing strengths training with kids Compensation assessment with HR Completely unplugged during Christmas break What were the most meaningful "aha" moments? Assessment that revealed coaching was my biggest strength- thinking about my perfect role and how I could use this strength while also dreaming big Doing nothing is the greatest activity; Meditation is not about doing anything, it's about undoing everything Authenticity has power Perfect Role Activity & 1:1 feedback from leaders & people that know me outside of work Never think that you aren't ready yet to be a coach: Either you have it or you don't- you make a difference in other people's lives Byron Katie's activity- Is this true? Is this really true? What are your current perceptions? What's bothering you? Determining a PhD would likely distract more than it would help You need to stop trying to figure out things- need to be in a place where you can access universal intelligence- don't try to make things happen Radiate love, don't absorb negativity- pray for God to help guide you Practice more acceptance- love people with all of their flaws & shortcomings Wherever you are focusing your attention, your energy is flowing We are becoming human doings not human beings Think about what you want to create in your life & go to sleep Depression is a lack of expression express- cook, paint, be quiet & listen to your soul reflect on things you have done contemplation is the greatest activity- all inventions happen because of contemplation (#1 step to create anything) What behaviours and practices do I hope to maintain? Meditation, exercise, unplugging for family time Continuing to coach others through 1:1 mentoring, workshops, sports & community activities Deep breathing activities Releasing you from making me feel_______ I will let you go the way you want to be________ I will release my expectation Are there any ways in which my coaching journey feels incomplete? Moving into a global & a people management role without having Vibha as a consultant scares me Having help & an outside perspective personally is also a concern, but we’ll connect again :)
