I work with powerful women in leadership. Perhaps this is you?
You fly high and push hard. You’ve spent your life taking care of your career, children, partner, parents or your friends but you’ve failed to take care of yourself. Finding balance in your life looks impossible. Without it though you run the risk of paying a heavy price. (Maybe it’s the reason you’ve found your way to this page). The price is your health. All too often high performers hit burn out, they collapse and illness hovers on their horizon.
How do I know this to be true?
For over 20 years I’ve worked with high flying powerful women who have crashed. Their stress levels are through the roof; they don’t sleep; they’ve put on weight and they don’t feel well. Their doctor tells them there’s nothing wrong with them, it’s all in their head.
These women are highly intelligent, they’re compelling, influential leaders. They’re here to be the difference that makes a difference and they love what they do. They tell me about missing out on the top job; not having the resources to manage their life; their increasing inability to juggle all the demands on their time. Achieving balance is not on their radar.
The problem is that women [and men too] don’t have a structure either personally or within their business that supports them to get the right balance with all the different things they juggle:
Children – from starting school to leaving school and leaving home, which brings another pressure – empty nest syndrome
Relationships – they usually suffer and often fall apart when ‘life’ becomes too much and too difficult
Career – women turn down the top job because they don’t know how they will fit anything else into their life never mind cope with more responsibility
Health – healthy eating and exercise fly out of the window under stress
Beliefs and Mindset – have a big part to play in not achieving balance:
- “I have to achieve more”
- “I can manage”
- “I’ll take care of myself later”
- “I can’t be seen as weak or vulnerable”
- “I must be seen as perfect”
- “It’s better to play safe than risk failing”
There is always a solution!
How fast do you want to make changes to your life?
What will your life look like when you’ve made the changes?
What’s going to happen if you don’t take action to make changes
- It starts with looking at Current Reality, the real, raw truth of where you are
- Getting Clarity on how you got there
- Finding Connection to your future
- Taking action to Create the life you want
Here’s how I work:
- We have a conversation on the phone
- We meet, you experience how I work. It’s totally free
- We find out if we would be a good fit to work together
At the end of the meeting there are 3 possibilities:
- I refer you to a colleague
- I recommend some good books I think you’d enjoy
- We decide to continue talking
You wouldn’t buy a new car without taking it out for a test drive. Coaching is no different. I want you to have an experience of what you’re investing in.
I believe it’s important to find out if we would be a good fit to work together. I don’t work with everyone who asks me and I won’t work with you if I don’t believe I can help.
Also, I’m very results driven so I need to know if you have the commitment to making the changes you want.
You might know this quote by Tony Robbins: “Change happens when the pain of change is less than the pain of staying the same”.
“I have a personal reason for doing what I do. I know from experience what it’s like to hit burn out and crash. I know how it feels to be forced to take time off work to recover (8 months). I crashed not once, not twice but three times!”
