Transitions in life can be very disruptive, causing pain and stress.
Find out how my client, a global female executive with over 25 years of experience in international organisations and various management and leadership positions experienced her transformational coaching, and learn about her progress captured with profilingvalues.
Profilingvalues is an excellent tool to establish the starting point and to measure the coachee’s progress over time, as a result of the transformational coaching.
We cannot go into details here, as you will understand. We keep it easy and straightforward.
My client gave me permission to use her “case” anonymously as an example for other professionals who might need and seek help to overcome their personal, relational and professional challenges.
The reasons and goals for her transformational coaching
My client is a highly educated and experienced executive at the international level. At one point she found herself in a new and difficult stage of life that she had never experienced before. It felt strange, stressful and uncomfortable for her, yet she kept up as best as she could, which caused a lot of energy drain. That is when we met. A lot had happened over a short period of time in the months beforehand.
She had had a big change in career, relational challenges at work, loss in the near family, an unexpected and shocking burnout diagnosis, and eventual loss of her job due to reorganisation.
The aim of our coaching collaboration was to support her through that highly disruptive transition, to improve her physical and emotional wellbeing, and to establish a healthy balance of self-care, and professional re-engagement.
The blue line represents the abilities (the skill) of a person. They are built and grow over time through upbringing, school, education, training, work and life experience. The blue line takes time to grow, and diminishes slowly. The latter happens in cases of mobbing, burnout, problems at work, seeking new orientations in life.
The orange line represents the person’s awareness (the will) of those abilities. In other words, it shows how much energy flows, and how big the focus is in that specific area.
It is more volatile than the blue line, and it works like a pendulum: the more energy and awareness there is, the more it opens up towards 100%. The less energy and focus, the more the orange line gives way. To use another picture: we open our shutters up, and we do more of what we know and like. Or we let the shutters down, and we withdraw and wait.
