You + Impact: What does the word "impact" mean for you?
Creating space and place for others to lean in to, when they cannot see it, feel, it or imagine that to be possible. One unique way I do this is blend pop culture with coaching and facilitation skills of metaphors and/or visualizations. I bring to life a character, a scene, or story line from iconic films (i.e. Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings) or shows that clients can relate to and can use as crew members (situational strategies) for future situations. This invites in playfulness into areas where people are stretching into.
You + Aliveness: What makes you feel most alive?
A sense of community, giving back, self-acceptance and deep belly laughs. The list can go on! I feel most alive when I experience these, and more importantly, when my clients do - especially when any one of these sneaks up on them! It's so important to have such experiences feel like second nature so that taking future steps don't feel as overwhelming or daunting.
