Hello, I’m Catriona. Here’s a little bit about how I got involved in coaching.
I had spent over fifteen years in the corporate world when I sought out a coach. At that point, I was a long way off from where I wanted to be in terms of my professional and personal growth.
I was spreading myself way too thin and rushing from day to day – not getting much of what matters done, let alone stand back and plan for the future. I wanted my work to matter and feel worthwhile, rather than just a means of paying the bills.
I needed someone to point out the obvious – to help me see what I couldn’t see. Someone to support me to take the necessary actions to make real change. That’s where my coach came in.
I learned to slow way down. Then, I was able to assess what was really important to me and what I actually wanted from my life and my work.
Today, worthwhile work for me is working with people – helping them to slow down in order to achieve more. Helping them to re-evaluate who they really are and in turn what they really want. Helping them to make the changes they need to create their version of success.
For me, working with the right coach was the first step to making change happen. Now, coaching allows me to work with those who are willing and brave enough to invest in themselves.
For me – that’s worthwhile work!
