I am my working tool.
Self-awareness is, therefore, a must.
Self-responsibility is becoming increasingly important in our fast-paced world characterized by digitalization and complexity. The ability to consciously question and evaluate one’s own thoughts and actions is a valuable tool to strengthen #selfawareness, #selfknowledge and #self-leadership.
Counselling, psychotherapy and coaching are essential learning spaces to develop and deepen these skills. They provide a safe space to consciously perceive and evaluate the impulses that trigger us to think and act. Here we can learn to understand ourselves better and find out what changes are needed in our lives and how we work to get closer to our goals.
For those of us in the consulting professions, this results in an obligation to engage ourselves in a lifelong process of #self-reflection. We must be aware of our own thought patterns, beliefs, and behaviours to work effectively and empathically with our clients. Our authenticity and credibility as counsellors, therapists or coaches depend on our willingness to challenge ourselves and learn continually.
This lifelong learning process can be both challenging and liberating. It allows us to leave the familiar, expand our horizons, and continually evolve. Through self-reflection, we can identify our strengths and weaknesses and learn how to utilize them better and balance them.
Finally, it is essential to remember that #selfawareness is not an isolated process but a continuous dialogue with ourselves and others. By engaging in this lifelong process of self-reflection and self-development, we ensure both our job satisfaction and the quality of our consulting and coaching work!
I believe that coaching is helpful and successful when we coaches deal with our own weaknesses and self-doubts in an appreciative and interested way and allow ourselves the freedom to be ourselves.
As one of the few active coaches with over 50 years of experience, I offer all my competencies to accompany you in self-reflection.
