My Journey of Transformation: From Client to Coach
In early 2021, I vividly remember how the pandemic radically shifted my perspective on life, career, identity, and well-being. I knew I needed to shift and make a change, but I was plagued with fear and a lack of confidence in what I needed to do. At times, I noticed that my support systems were giving me advice that didn’t resonate with me and trying to solve my problems in ways that made sense to them. I realized I needed to say no to something to make room for the person I wanted to become.
I made a decision that would forever change the course of my life. Feeling a deep yearning for something more, I embarked on a personal journey of self-discovery and growth. It was during this transformative period that I recognized the power of coaching and its ability to enhance self-awareness and help individuals gain clarity on their true desires. Inspired by the profound impact coaching had on my life, I decided to dive deeper into this transformative practice, ultimately leading me to the Co-Active Training Institute (CTI).
I want to share my coaching journey, the insights I gained, and my vision for a world where leaders and managers embrace coaching principles.
Saying Yes to Change:
The first step on my coaching journey was saying yes to change. Recognizing that I desired a more fulfilling and purpose-driven life, I decided to invest in myself by seeking the guidance of a coach. This pivotal decision began my transformational journey as I embarked on self-discovery and personal growth.
Discovering the Power of Coaching:
Working with a coach opened my eyes to the profound impact coaching can have on individuals. Through thought-provoking conversations, powerful questioning, and a safe space for reflection, I began to unravel my own beliefs, values, and aspirations. Coaching helped me become more self-aware, clarifying what I truly wanted in life, who I wanted to become, and creating action to achieve that goal.
Embracing Coaching Skills:
Inspired by my coaching experience, I became eager to learn coaching skills to support others on their journey of self-discovery. This led me to the Co-Active Training Institute, a renowned organization that provides comprehensive coaching training. Through CTI, I completed over 100 hours of coaching and an additional 150 hours of certification training. These immersive programs equipped me with the tools and techniques to empower individuals to unlock their potential and achieve their goals.
Visioning a Coach-Like World:
As I delved deeper into the world of coaching, a vision began to take shape within me—a vision of a world where workplace leaders and managers embrace coaching principles. I envision a world where curiosity, empowerment, and a genuine desire to support others are the foundations of leadership. By incorporating coaching into leadership practices, we can foster a culture of growth, collaboration, and authenticity. I am committed to sharing this vision with the world and empowering leaders and managers to adopt a coach-like approach professionally and personally.
My coaching journey, which began with a simple desire for change, has blossomed into a passion and a mission. Through my transformation, I have witnessed the incredible power of coaching to create self-awareness, clarity, and growth. Inspired by this experience, I have dedicated myself to empowering others and promoting coaching principles in leadership and management. Together, let us create a world where curiosity, empowerment, and coaching catalyze personal and professional success.
