This is how we proceed:
You talk, I listen: We discover where you are today.
We look at the different aspects of your life through the ConnectEd wheel. We assess the positives and negatives in your own view of your life. This is the time when we also look at the past and acknowledge successes, challenges and limitations. Through these, we become aware of your values, your strengths and areas that need improvement.
I ask, you tell: We identify the direction you want your life to take.
We highlight and define your goals clearly. We break them down and make them SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound) taking into consideration your current realities.
You decide, I hold you to your decision: We explore ways to achieve your goals.
We explore and evaluate your options to work out an action plan that is unique to you whilst being achievable and sustainable over the long term. You decide 'how' and 'when' you want to do 'what' and I am right besides you to hold you accountable to your tasks. I provide constructive support and critique towards your commitments and actions. You can expect me to challenge you sometimes to move out of your comfort zone to make the necessary shifts.
You implement, I applaud: We celebrate every success, every single win.
If we need to revisit your action plan or redefine your goals, this is the time to re-investigate and adjust them to allow you to strive forwards.
You reach your destination, You are 'ConnectEd': You have accomplished what you set out to do.
Your hard work has paid off and your reward is that all the dots in your life are connected, the wheel is rolling smoothly and you are living life fully.
How am I doing ‘walking the talk’?
Here is how the dots of my life are connected; the process is ongoing, and the ride is getting smoother everyday as it takes me closer to living my life fully:
I am currently setting up my coaching&consulting practice and my niche is Global leadership development, cross cultural and transformational coaching. The choice of my niche comes directly from my experience and success as well as my passion for the corporate world, my multi-cultural, multi-country family life, and my fascination with the amazing power of the mind.
Due to the highly competitive and often ruthless nature of the corporate world, I found myself struggling with the ConnectEd model initially as I thought that it did not fit my niche. Yet it represents my core values as a person and it kept coming back to me. My professional success in a challenging work environment confirmed that there had to be a way out. My challenge was to formulate a process that would allow my inner beliefs and my outside world to be co-exist
And the great news is that it does exist.
After extensive research, based on my own professional experience and further to my ICA journey, I came to realise that the missing link in the corporate world is actually the ”PEOPLE” factor. It is too often overlooked and dismissed without enough consideration. With my new awareness, I wish to bring forward the concept of a ‘human-capital responsible’ leadership, as a basic and essential component of management, which supports the success of any corporation while ensuring the satisfaction of the individuals who contribute to it.
