Finding Your Super Power
‘We must believe that we are gifted for something, and that this thing, at whatever cost, must be attained, it is our Super Power.’ –Marie Curie
As a Certified Professional Coach, Master Certified Coach, Executive and Relationship Coach, my practice is dedicated to women. When asked to describe what I do this is what I say.
“I help women take the BRICKS that are thrown at them and build a foundation for success”
What are BRICKS?
Bullshit- the stories we tell ourselves that keep us stuck, personally and professionally
Relationships- we attract or get caught up in that are toxic
Intentional – refusing to live life out loud with purpose, mindfulness and in your truth
Confidence -Using the 3-F’s Recipe for failure to become Flawed and Fearless
Keys- We are the keys to our success, when we stop focusing on the problems
Solutions – In every problem is the solution, starting with ‘Selfies’ what you believe about you is true
This means I coach women through their stories, obstacles, blocks and adversities to use their personal or professional strengths, resources, networks and personal power to get to their ‘Super Power. Their outcome after coaching provides them with the tools, language and a unique model to use every time life throws bricks at them, or they go out and bring bricks home.
