Every so often in life, we pause and make note of the person we have become and the one we are becoming. Sometimes this reflection is prompted by professional circumstances, like a promotion, performance review, job change, or firing. Just as often it emerges from the “rest of life” – as through an illness, death, or the beginning or ending of a relationship.
Whatever the origin, these experiences can feel like an opportunity or a burden, a chance to develop or a painful lesson…and often both. How we make sense of these experiences often determines what actions we take, and this, of course, influences our competence and fulfillment in life.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have someone by our side, in these moments? Someone to ask skillful questions, listen deeply, and be fully present with who we are and what we say; to point out our blind spots, and custom-design practices to help us move forward?
