As a Career and Leadership Coach I learn a lot from my clients. Many of my clients last year were dealing with major changes. Many lost jobs they had for over 15 years and really did not think they were going to be in this transition. This transition gave them an opportunity to think about what they really wanted for their life. What does it mean to explore your best life? Simply put it means to tweak what we are doing to have more happiness! My honest clients tell me there is definitely no shortage of negative stress these days. We need to make choices that are going to energize us and keep us enjoying every day instead of feeling like we are on some hamster wheel getting nowhere.
In my own life – 2009 had some major career changes which allowed me to develop my business in different and exciting ways! I am completely recharged and have the energy that I need and want to drive my clients to their success! One small change I made was to sign up for an exercise morning boot camp. This change has provided me with such a recharge and has had a positive impact on my life and career.
William Bridges, a famous change expert has a model to explain how we deal with change. We all go through three key phases. The first one is the ending phase when we really have to say it is over. The second phase is the neutral zone. This is when we wake up and feel like our life is just a bunch of chaos. This is usually when I get a call from a client who needs some assistance. If we do not get the support we need in the neutral zone we cannot make it to the new beginning phase. The new beginning phase is when we can really focus, make good choices and explore our best life!
