When we are hard at work, solving problems, creating opportunities, planning ahead, analysing what's gone before, dealing with people, etc, we're having to juggle quite a lot dealing with the order of the day. We face a thousand decisions a day - some easy, some more complicated and some seemingly impossible.
We make decisions instinctually, intellectually and emotionally - however, the busier it gets, the less time we take to connect back to ourselves and when we disconnect, we inadvertently separate our heads from our hearts. When that happens, we start to distrust our instincts and begin to second guess ourselves. Stress builds and before we know it we've lost all the joy and become irritable and unpredictable. When that happens it gets harder and harder to make decisions reliably as decisions taken from a challenging emotional state can have disastrous consequences.
My one-on-one HeArt Working coaching support programme gives leaders the chance to take time out to reconnect and bring the HeArt back into their decision making. To take a step back and regain perspective, allowing them to tap back into the wisdom that is present in and available to all of us.
There are three keys that are central to my work.
Someone once asked me, if I had three bits of advice for the world what would they be? I realised they are: Be Present, Be Curious and Be Kind. These have become my three keys to life, leadership and coaching.
Be Present - because presence keeps us grounded and connects us back to our inner wisdom.
Be Curious - because curiosity keeps us away from fear and allows us to remain open to new perspectives.
Be Kind - because kindness makes the world go round and reminds us that it is our imperfections that make us perfect.
