I am reminded today of a coaching fundamental – the power of perspective. I was working with a client this week -she is an amazing woman – driven, independent, successful. And yet she notices that some of that drive can feel intense to others – it can come across as somewhat alarmist – ‘the sky is falling’ kind of thing. Because she is so amazing, she took on some homework to shift FROM that more dramatic, ‘sound the alarm’ energy TO a floating above it all perspective. Still in charge, still successful. But, coming from a more calm, cool, collected place. I think I might take on that homework myself!
