The New Life Becomes You
program - "Turning up the heat"
While the process of how we work together is as unique as our clients, here is the basic process:
Values: We start by identifying what's most important to you in life. Values are like piano strings at the core of your being - when you make choices in alignment with your values, it's as though you've played the right chords, and you feel a deep sense of fulfillment.
For example, several of our clients during our work have moved from "the golden handcuffs" of corporate employment to starting their own businesses. What they had in common were strong feelings of dissatisfaction combined with values of independence, autonomy, flexibility, and creativity, all of which were previously being stifled in their careers. Once they made the connection between their values and their career path, life began to flow smoothly and easily and the puzzle pieces of their career lives fell into place.
Vision: Once we know more about who you are via your values, we develop a long-range vision for your whole life. To get a small taste of what this looks like, take a moment right now and imagine yourself a year from now, living the life you've only fantasized about. Your career is taking off as it never has before, income is at an all-time high, your relationships are strong and authentic, your health and energy level are outstanding, and best of all, you feel positive and alive all the time.
The visioning part of the process involves nailing down the specifics of what a fulfilling life looks like for you. What's that actual career choice? Which relationships are you consciously improving? In what way? How much weight did will you lose or muscle mass will you gain? Overall, what does a fully balanced life look like for you?
Strategy: Now we look at how it's all going to happen. It starts by committing to the vision, a powerful act in itself, because it opens up possibilities that didn't exist before. Next we look at your individual strengths, and tactics for leveraging those strengths, in alignment with your values.
For example, do you build rapport with people easily and quickly? Then we'll rely on relationships to help you get where you want to go? Identify a strategy that works from your strengths, and you become more powerful and magnetic, making it easier to make your vision a reality.
Perspective: Along with all the nuts and bolts planning is perhaps the most important element in recreating your life: mindset. We rely on this simple cycle:
Your thoughts and beliefs drive your actions
Your actions drive your results and experiences
Your experiences drive your thoughts and actions
Most of the time we are unaware of our thoughts and beliefs and too many of our choices are made unconsciously. When we examine our beliefs, especially those that limit us, we become free to change them, ultimately changing the results we get in life.
Underlying all the rest of our work together is a focus on a mindset that fosters creativity, openness, and new possibilities.
Accountability and Higher Standard: Once you've made the commitment to coaching, we'll be holding you to a higher standard than you've ever known before. In our eyes you are nothing less than a magnificent creature; if you're truly ready, we will "turn up the heat" and demand that you never settle for less again and always strive for your highest potential.
