Having embarked on some major life transitions over the past year - buying a home, leaving my job, moving back to Canada, starting a business - I have had to navigate the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that come with confronting the unknown.
And no matter how great I think I'm doing in life, there will always be setbacks. This year, I have struggled with negative thoughts about my ability to run a business, an inner critic that replays old unhelpful stories, and the ups and downs of leaving a life in another country behind.
Because of the work I do, I have a nearly unlimited toolkit to help me through these challenging thoughts and emotions, not to mention a coach and a community of support. And while I can't eliminate the inner negativity, I can move through it with more ease, greater alignment with my values, and carry myself through with authenticity and integrity.
As I prepare to launch the first Authentic Leadership Conversationsᵀᴹ series in St. John's, NL (Canada) next week, I am eager to share some of what I've learned so that others can also move through relationships and difficult transitions with curiosity and self-compassion.
The conversations we will have together will help you gain clarity on your vision for your leadership and life. You will leave each session with actions that you can take to start or deepen the inner work that is required for authentic, ethical and compassionate leadership.
Starting on June 27 (this session is now sold out), the dinner series will be an opportunity for you to really focus on what your authentic leadership journey will look like. When we do this work, we can show up how we choose to more of the time. We can be more intentional about where we spend our energy and time. And we can learn to navigate the challenges of life in a way that gives us energy, fills us with possibility, and allows us to thrive.
Topics for the 8-event series include:
June 27 How do I manage my inner critic?
July 18 How can I navigate difficult conversations?
August 15 How can I cultivate work-life balance?
August 29 How can I say no and set boundaries (and be okay with it)?
September 19 How do I navigate transitions in life and work?
October 3 How does emotional intelligence support my leadership?
October 17 How can I lead in alignment with my values?
November 7 How do scarcity and abundance mindsets impact my leadership and life?
If you want to join us for any of these conversations, get in touch with me and let me know which events you want to join. For more details, visit the Authentic Leadership Conversationsᵀᴹ page.
If you prefer to do this work one-on-one, contact me for a discovery session or to discuss how I support my clients through executive and leadership coaching.
