Thriving In Challenging Times And Beyond!

Ed: A Life and Business Success Story: Uncovering the Structure and Dynamics of Creating What Matters
Ed was a local businesman who had done more workshops and read more self-help books than any personal life coaching client I ever worked with. Although he was a difficult client to coach, Ed's story is fascinating.
Early in the personal coaching process, I helped Ed craft a vision of the kind and quality of life and work he wanted to create. But he wasn't happy with it. "Something," he said, "was missing."
What Ed could not see was that he'd unconsciously set up a structure - an organizing framework - in which several of his values and desires conflicted with each other.
Through coaching, Ed came to see how his previous unseen structure prevented him from creating results that mattered most. And he learned how to shift into a more effective structure that allowed him to create results he truly cared about. [Read

Sarah's Life/Work Success Story: Working With the Creating Process
Sarah's learning's about envisioning desired results and doing what's needed to make them happen are applicable to anyone wanting to do the same.
In Sarah's first coaching session, she listed a number of small, concrete results she wanted to produce. They included a writing space, a brochure for her freelance communications service, and a circle of friends.
When pushed to stretch for what she most wanted, Sarah outlined a long-term vision of what she wistfully called her "dream cottage."
Although it sounded great to me, because Sarah was short on money and living in an expensive part of the country, a number of the others in our group session thought her "dream cottage" vision was unrealistic.
I told her that it was good to stretch beyond her current capacity, and that the dream cottage result would be good practice - whether she succeeded in creating it, or not.

Murray's Entrepreneur Success Story: Figuring Out What Really Matters
Murray hated his job and wanted to uncover what most mattered to him. But, it wasn't easy. What we really want to create and what we think we "should" create can get confused, as they did for Murray.
However, he persevered through the skill-building and framework-creating coaching process. He practiced, learned, and peeled away the onion skins of ideals and false desires.
His entrepreneur success story is about how he figured out how to shut off the "shoulds," articulate what truly mattered and create success that others truly savour.[Read more about Murray's award-winning entrepenur success story.]
