Why Get a Coach?

“I’ve always battled with my career. I felt like I had no purpose and I never liked what I was doing. My jobs always ended in me either being let go from downsizing or I would get fired. My coach taught me that it’s not “what I do” for a living that matters it’s ¨how I am¨ about what I am doing that does. My coach is teaching me how to break my old habits and how important it is to challenge my doubts and fears. I realize that I truly create my world by what I think. I now have practices in place that stop me from going down a path of negativity and self-doubt. As I keep up the practices she taught me, they get better and better and so does my life.”
 — Beth Armstrong, events manager

So…why get a coach?

You –

  • Develop leadership skills and practices – for work and life!
  • You enhance your career and end up in the right place…
  • Get ongoing, impartial feedback that assures your growth!

Did You Do Your Sun Salutes Today…?

Or your workout of choice? I did my prostrations. I have done 1000 of my prescribed 111 111. It will take me 100 years. But that’s OK - because it’s all about the PRACTICE, not the goal. In 1994, I went on a wild adventure in the Himalayas. I will tell more stories later on, but today, I just want to share this one about said practice. Right outside of Lhasa, I ...

Self-deception – we’re all guilty of it!

Hey, it’s me, Jo… It’s Monday afternoon and I’m about ready to tend to business. The morning was spent catching up after the weekend! Do you ever feel that way?

It was based on a conversation with my ...

The US – Isolated and alone?

While living in the US, for 25 years, I always had a eerie feeling of isolation. That if the US did something dumb, we’d float off on our own into an isolated island in the West. I found it hard to find world news but they were often US centric. So as much as the US has been the envy of the world for so long, it is also an ...
