  • Existential Coaching - Exercising Our Experiential Muscles

    06/28/2020

    At the heart of existential coaching is a very human desire to feel more fully present and engaged in our lives. We want to feel more alive and vibrant, to feel connected to and part of communities, and to experience healthy, valued relationships. We fear being isolated or set apart in the world. We want to feel less lonely. We want to be better able to weather and ride the waves of life. We want to find ways to tame our worry and anxiety about issues we cannot easily control: our jobs, the economy, the environment, global politics, the state of our world.

  • Why Is It Important To Become Familiar With How We Work?

    06/28/2020

    We are beginning to accept the fact that most of us will have several different jobs/careers in our lifetime. In order to navigate career change(s) and transition(s), it is increasingly important to become more aware of, and more skilled at, both understanding and articulating “how” we work.

    The “how” is a vital ingredient we need to add to our offering – as important as learned skills, innate skills, education and training.
