How coaching has added value to my life and business:
When I stepped into my first coaching class, it felt like I was coming home. For me, it started at a young age. I was always fascinated by people, how they behave, think, feel and express themselves. It was no surprise to anyone that at the tender age of 17, I began my journey to University to study Psychology. Although Psychology gave me invaluable insights and experience, there was something about working in the client’s past that didn’t live into my values.
I put my Psychology to one side and decided personal development would stay a hobby while I delved into the business world. I started working for various multi-national companies gaining as much ‘real-life’ experience as possible by working and managing teams and clients all around the world. I went back to University for a second time and studied Innovation Management that enabled me to find solutions to common challenges such as scaling remote and distributed teams. I had, I thought, achieved my definition of success. After all, I had the title, the salary, the team, the opportunity but still, something inside me felt I had something more impactful to give.
It wasn’t until I had my first coaching session with an incredible coach that it all clicked. I was in the process of setting up my consultancy business and felt I needed some external support on how to take my business and myself to the next level. During that session, I knew I immediately needed to learn more about coaching, and after extensive research, I signed up to train as an accredited coach.
My experience in becoming a coach was indeed one of the most fulfilling and impactful personal investments I’ve ever made. To coach other people, you must first surrender to be coached yourself extensively by other coaches and by yourself. For the first time, I felt I had real clarity around who I am, what I value, what serves me well and how I set myself up for my true definition of success; empowering individuals and teams find the resourcefulness and potential within themselves. With a toolkit full of knowledge, awareness and success strategies, I was finally able to leave my full-time job and pursue my own business, Operate Remote.
Since then, I’ve never questioned my fulfilment in my work or how I can make a more significant impact in the world because I’m doing it. Although being a solo-entrepreneur requires resilience, a growth mindset and an unshakeable empowered belief system. I fundamentally believe that there is never an end-goal when it comes to personal development. Our world is continually changing in life, in business and through technology. For that reason, I’ve committed to a life-long journey of personal development not only to practise what I preach but to show up as my best self for my goals and my clients.
Coaching has not only enabled me to make the right decisions in my life, but I can now deliver a long-lasting impact on my clients in my business, through the power of coaching. Being a qualified coach and consultant allows me to work with my clients in two ways; I work with companies around the mindset shift that needs to happen when they work remotely, but I also work with them to create strategies and processes that will serve their remote team as they continue to scale. From working with me, companies see results such as increased productivity, profitability, and overall better team morale.
