“I participated in a GPS Yourself: Find Your True North workshop facilitated, in part, by a fabulous professional coach—Dawn MacMillan Firestone. She is original and creative, and delivers insight that taps into multiple intelligences ensuring you are actively engaged… You come away with an experience that moves you to a whole other level; you find out what is stopping you and what is propelling you forward so you can do more of the latter and less of the former,” Roxanne
Case study 1
In my life coaching practice, my goal is to help people become more successful—in their personal lives as well as their professional ones.
In the early days of my practice, a senior executive came to me with a problem—he was working harder than ever but making less money and leaving less time for his family. He couldn’t understand why it was happening to him and what he could do about it.
Over the next few sessions, we worked on finding his true purpose—the things he was most passionate about and which made him the most money. We also tried to locate his inner saboteur—the thing holding him back, which, frankly, was not that hard to find.
You see smart people find it easy to pick up tasks as they go but find it hard to let them go. As a result, they tend to become bogged down in urgent but unimportant chores.
In one session, I asked him, “So how many goals, Bill (not his real name), do you actually have?”
His answer, “I don’t really know,” so, for our next session, I asked him to write them down. Turns out, he had 42. 42!
Over the next year, Bill, with my encouragement, got in a lot of practice using the word, “No.”
He whittled down his list of goals from 42 to 5, after which his income tripled while his hours of work stayed about the same.
Interestingly, he also found that he became much more creative as he narrowed his focus to those areas where he was truly an expert. So, his client work, client satisfaction with his work and his writing also improved.
A more productive, happier Bill also carried over to his personal life where his relationships with his spouse and six adult children also improved.
