PERSONAL PERFORMANCE COACHING
example challenges clients work on in individual sessions
Our ways of thinking and our mindset (the perception of ourselves, others and the world) don’t always serve us. We only use our conscious brain 5% of the time, so we complete the majority of daily tasks as routines and on autopilot. Our thoughts and the way we think, unless regularly challenged, tend to be a reflection of the beliefs our parent figures passed onto us and our own beliefs which we acquired when we were children. They can be very hurtful and unfair, but also full of excuses. The omnipresent critical voice that tells you you are not good enough to apply for that job, or to be with someone kind and attractive, or the voice that keeps telling you that you can go and exercise tomorrow instead of today, are simply thinking scripts that can be rewritten to our advantage. Only we, ourselves, can do it, by giving ourselves the attention, time and practice it takes to become make the challenge of change. By developing self-awareness and learning various tools, techniques and skills, we can stop self-sabotaging ourselves and start living to our full potential.
The thief of time.... Did you realise procrastination is not, for most people, a time management challenge? It’s an emotional management problem. It’s do with motivation, perceived value of the task we are trying to complete and the level of our impulsiveness. The trouble is, chronic procrastinators, as multiple studies show, suffer from a sense of guilt and shame about their procrastination - even if they frequently laugh their procrastination off in public. No wonder - they keep on betraying themselves by letting themselves and others down. Let’s go for that run tomorrow, let’s think about it later, let’s look at this report first thing tomorrow morning ... Can you relate to any of these examples, or perhaps, all of them? Procrastination may lead to increased anxiety and levels of stress. And that’s on top of the underperformance that’s already happening.
Why do you procrastinate and aren't achieving as much as you would like to? Do you feel like time flies by and your
to-do-list is growing and there's never enough time to actually get down to doing?
Start living your life to the full by creating the time and headspace for everything that is important to you. Get things done. Get results.
Nothing is ever good enough for a perfectionist, no matter how good! Some get bogged down in detail and can never move on past it, which makes them always feel behind. Some suffer from an obsessive-compulsive disorder that drives them and, especially, others, crazy. They never get anything finished. Everything has to be in a certain way. Being a perfectionist can be extremely exhausting for the perfectionist and their environment. Perfectionism is very often just the tip of the iceberg - there are unresolved challenges and limiting beliefs lurking from underneath that layer of comfortable distraction and always trying to perfect something.
STRATEGIES TO COMBAT ANXIETY
Perhaps you have always been an anxious person and it's slowed you down, maybe you've even missed out on some opportunities because of it. It may be preventing you from living your life the way you have always wanted to. There are strategies to cope with anxiety. NB, I am not a therapist, and I may refer you to a specialist if your anxiety is severe.
INFLUENCING & COMMUNICATION
How aware are you of what drives human behaviour and its dynamics? Can you notice and name your emotions? Emotional intelligence has nothing to do with the level of one's IQ and is found to be actually more important in achieving success. What's great about EQ is that it can be learned. How? Understand yourself and others and see life move into the direction you want.
Become what you deserve to be, a confident individual who knows their worth and acts accordingly. Have the confidence to ask for things in life and believe you are a success. Don't be afraid to err, as there's no failure, only learning.
HEALTHY LIVING - WEIGHT LOSS AND BUILDING PHYSICAL STRENGTH
How is your physical health, the level of your fitness and physical strength currently? How do you feel in your own body? If it's just fine, congratulations! If it's far from that, why not take steps to bridge the gap between where you are and where want to be. Whether it's by taking little steps or big leaps, it is possible to improve and up to you. I can help you set up realistic goals and support you throughout creating a healthy life style.
BUILDING HEALTHY AND THRIVING RELATIONSHIPS as a parent, partner and friend
The outcome of communication is the the way we communicate. What kind of language do you use while communicating with yourself and others? Do you think about the impact your words and body language have on the person in front of you? Can you read theirs? We are all very different but without the diversity, we wouldn't be as far as we are, so we must be able to communicate in a respectful way and adapt to each other's styles and preferences to co-exist happily. Learn how to understand each other better, be more compassionate and adjust your behaviour to others to enhance your relationships and have a more fulfilling family and social life.
