Simplicity

Road Trip! The destination for this week is “Simplicity.” Ever wonder why our lives are so busy and complicated? Just maybe, it’s related to the choices we make. Returning to a state of simplicity can clear your mind and allow you to focus on what’s important.

This week, clear all unnecessary appointments from your schedule. Make sure you have time to rest, reflect, and spend time with your friends and family. Reconnect with yourself.

Pick one area in your house to clean out anything that’s no longer used or needed.

If possible, spend some time in nature. Notice how well everything seems to work without the need for a lot of “stuff.”

The Value of Coaching

This is from last year, but I stumbled across this excellent article online at Chief Learning Officer about the value of having a coach. It’s sometimes misunderstood that coaching is to “fix” someone when more often it’s used to enhance performance. From the article, “It’s rare for an organization to offer coaching to someone who doesn’t offer enormous promise and potential.

Corporations invest a lot of money in coaching services for their high-performance, high-value individuals. But coaching isn’t just for the elite. The value of coaching in obtaining these positions can’t be under-estimated. Coaching is a substantial investment but one that pays off by creating a higher performing, more heart-focused version of you.

Through heart-focused leadership coaching, we work together as partners to build your resilience. To communicate with more impact and influence and connect with your team, we’ll explore eight aspects of a heart-focused leader:

  • creative
  • authentic
  • vulnerable
  • resilient
  • intuitive
  • empathetic
  • trusting
  • transparent

Goal setting, planning and accountability keep you on track to reach your desired destination. What could you achieve this year with a little coaching?

Wisdom

Road Trip! The destination for this week is “Wisdom.” Far more than knowledge and facts, your wisdom has been hard-earned through both joy and pain. This week, discover the wisdom within you.

Look back at the milestone events in your life. How have those experiences changed the way you make decisions?

When faced with a tough question, ask yourself what you still need to know before you answer.

Delight (have fun!)

Road Trip! The destination for this week is “Delight.” Experience the unbridled joy, silliness and wonder of life. Talk with your inner child and have fun!

Make a list of things that made you laugh as a child. Spend a few hours this week rekindling that spirit.

Play with a toy; the more silly the better.

If you can, spend a few hours with a child and look at the world through their eyes. Make note of the differences between how you typically react to situations and how they respond. Which would serve you better in your life?

Jot down a few ideas for how you can add more fun and joy to your work. Try one out this week.
