“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Mark Twain
Growth doesn’t stop after we leave school. The choices we make, the priorities we assign and the focus we direct in our lives will impact the direction and the journey.
Whether we are making these decisions as conscious choices or simply being reactive to the external environment makes a difference.
SynergyPsychology coaching supports clients to recognise the choices they are making, see a wider scope of opportunities ahead and focus their attention and effort into those that are most meaningful and fulfilling.
We will work together to clarify your goals, aspirations and the bigger picture view and develop strategies and tools to pursue these dreams. The work often involves exploring and overcoming psychological barriers and blockers, building resilience and a more up-to-day picture of own resources and motivations, breaking old habits and effectively learning new behaviours and new thinking.
My coaching is inclusive, intentional and impact orientated. The approach is deeply rooted in understanding of psychology, adult development theories and blends a wide range of tools and techniques to enable a deeper and more impactful journey for my clients.
SynergyPsychology leadership coaching increases leaders’ ability to navigate complex, fast changing landscapes, explore skills, capabilities and mindsets that drive or constrain progress and build personal resilience and presence.
Systems Approach to Coaching
Taking systems approach to developing potential, we often start coaching journey by identifying the key elements of the wider system the client is a part of. For example, building leadership capability, we start by looking at what leadership needs to look like in the client’s systems and explore how the client’s personality, professional background, preferences, current values, ambitions and goals help or hinder them.
Vertical Development refers to development in individual's thinking capability and the ability to see and deal with complexity within and outside. As opposed to horizontal development, where an individual acquires new skills, knowledge, information, vertical development creates a shift in one's awareness and builds the ability to think in more complex, interdependent and systemic way.
Using Constructivist Adult Development framework (Robert Kegan, E. Jaques, S. Cook-Greuter, etc.) allows a deeper and a more holistic exploration of the leader's current sense making, and the challenges as well as opportunities, present at their stage of development.
