Last year, I began working with a female entrepreneur who had suffered a professional and a personal set back through events which were not within her control. Throughout our time working together she made significant progress by harnessing her drive and resilience – skills she didn’t appreciate she already held. Outcomes she achieved through coaching were, a better work life balance, a stronger personal relationship with her partner and the best year her business has performed to date.
The key factors which drove these improvements were:
Focusing on the things she could control
Managing fear by developing a better relationship with negative feelings
Concentrating on priorities and not allowing distractions to overwhelm
Reviewing life when it is going right, rather than wrong, to help identify what works
Not caring about what other people think or making comparisons.
The benefits she found from adopting these key factors were:
· An end to trying to please people
· Clarity on what she wanted
· Ownership of her personal development
· Respectful relationships with others
· The confidence to say ‘no’
· Increased self-esteem and self-worth.
