Dear Podcast Guests,
Coaching is another word for helping someone move. Like the very first carriages or chariots that were created by the Egyptians a few thousands years ago to bring people from one place to another. And finally gave their name to this profession. Coaching is about movement.
People come to us, coaches, with all sorts of requests.. personal, professional, business questions and often all together. We go to a coach because we look for new answers, we look for clarity, we look for a different way to approach situations or want some kind of relief.. we look for help to see beyond the limitations of our mind, to change perspective, feel, understand, expand and take actions. We look for a coach when we are ready to move.
They are so many ways to do that. We can be given some exercises, we can be told what and how to do things, we can look outside for explanations etc.. but we actually learn in a much more sustainable way through insights. That’s the one I prefer.
An insight is a fresh new way of looking at something. When the thing does not change but the way we look at it does, opening totally new mental perspectives.
After that you can stay or you can go, you can handle the situation this way or another way. You can say yes or you can say no. You have way more options for actions and the direction to take is more obvious. That’s freedom and your mind can be creative again. That’s a change from the inside to the outside. A mental change that leads to what ever changes need to happen in the reality outside.
And it is the same whether you are a leader and/or a mother, young or older, whether you need to make a strategic decision, work with your team, prepare for an important conversation or need to feel inside of you what you really want. The mental principals are the same. For all of us.
When we really understand deeply those basic principles of our mind they have a transformative impact. It changes us profoundly. But this topic is such a vast and beautiful one I would like to keep the deeper exploration of that word for another day.
This podcast is about all that. Giving you here and there input to help you see things differently so that you can be an even greater version of yourself and do in your life what ever amazing things you’re meant to do. It’s not about debating or sharing opinions here. It’s about connecting with what is true for all of us, about exploring and expanding our views on reality and the questions of life. When I say life, I include work, leadership, business, relationships, well being, emotions etc.. Because all that is part of our lives.
The advent calendar is actually a fun exercise based on improvisation. It’s a bit playful, starting each time new and seeing what comes out of my brain that may be useful to you. Without rehearsal just based on what comes in the moment.
Short, unpolished , focused on a single topic each time with the intention to share what i see, what I have learned over the more than 3 decades exploring the field of the human mind, hoping that it might inspire you to discover new fields of thoughts, to look at your reality from a different angle .. hoping that you may get new insights in a way or another to see and do things differently in your life including your work.
In these 24 Podcast Chats we will not cover the whole scope of the subject, the intention is just to point you in a particular direction so that you can continue to see what ever you need to see by yourself. What I do with this podcast after Januar 2020. I don’t know yet. But I know I will know at some point.
I hope you‘ll stay with me in this journey and we can enjoy this movement together. I look forward to it. And don’t hesitate to reach out whenever you feel like it. Enjoy!
With Love, Drissia Schroeder-Hohenwarth
