Magic

18 Oct 2007 | Uncategorized

There’s a certain amount of magic that happens in a great coaching session, a combination of two people sparking off trains of thought, creativity and possibility.

Magic

I have a client at the moment who is an absolute pleasure to coach. He knows what he wants, he’s not afraid to tell me when something’s not working, very vocal, open and expressive, and certainly seems to be getting a lot out of our sessions, which are full of insights, inspirations, creativity and laughter. Almost makes me think surely this shouldn’t be so much fun – it is work after all! But that’s definitely a Good Sign.

It’s a good sign that I’m on the right track, pursuing a career that I enjoy and feel passionate about, doing something that fulfils rather than drains me, and hey maybe it’s even a sign that I might be good at this!

Of course this means that I have now created a bit of a tough act to follow, raised the bar of expectation, and not actually being a magician myself, I’m not sure exactly how that magic came about in the first place!

Nothing like a bit of apprehension to keep you on your toes hey?

    Hey,
    Just realised that, despite many I’ve started to write, it’s been a while since I commented. It amuses me that, because I only read LJ at work, someone who prompts me to respond to something in depth and interesting is the person I never comment to. I start the comments and then have to stop half way through because work intervenes. 🙁
    I will, at some point, get round to giving my thoughts on your ‘inspiration’ post. Not sure if it’ll be on my own journal (because it’ll end up being very lengthy) or here (because many people on my journal have heard much the same rant before). It’s based around the idea that my biggest driving value is choice. That’s maintaining my choices and the preservation of choice for those around me. Oddly enough, what sounds like quite a ‘fluffy’, ‘nice’ value can turn out to have some rather hard-line consequences.
    Anyway, I’ll get back to that in a bit. I mainly wanted to say that I am still here, I am still reading and I definately enjoy and think about what you write. I’m really glad things are going well for you! Hope to meet up soon.
