When I first met Vanessa I was working in a team where morale was low. Due to this and a personal health issue, I had developed a negative outlook on life. The coaching program began with an analysis of my personality, attitudes and behaviours. (Extended DISC profile). I had undertaken a personality test some years before so the results of this second analysis were no surprise. What did make me stop and think was the analysis of my current attitudes and behaviours making me realise that I was retreating into an increasingly smaller personal comfort zone and a place I did not want to be.
The coaching sessions with Vanessa gave me the opportunity to address the issues I identified as being a problem for me and how I interacted with people. She helped me to see that I could make changes to my thought processes and interactions with others and so stretch the boundary of my comfort zone. The sessions were challenging but I came away from each one with something concrete that I could work on straight away both at work and in my personal life.
Now I regularly take time to reflect on where I am at and how I am going as well as what I have done well and what I could do better next time. I have a clearer vision of what I want the future to look like and how I can make it happen. It is still a work in progress but I am enjoying life so much more and feel optimistic for the future. Thank you Vanessa.
